We stayed at the Madison house B&B for the wild and scenic film Festival. We had wonderful time with our friends and the owners are spectacular - very friendly, helpful... Each morning we had a wonderful breakfast that also accommodated any of our special needs. Thank you Barbara and Ken. See you next time.

Thank you Kellye, It was wonderful to have you return and to bring new friends. We truly enjoyed the weekend and filling the house with such a great group! I enjoyed sharing the movies and of course, thank you for finding and returning my purse. We look forward to next year, but don't be strangers till then. Ken & Barbara More

We celebrated the Christmas holidays at The Madison House with 8 of our good friends. Hosts Ken & Barbara were ready for us the minute we arrived. We requested to have dinner (at an extra charge), which was fine. The four course meal was excellent. The rooms were very comfortable. The breakfast next morning was yummy. We will be back... More

Charming! Proprietors Ken & Barbie and their beautiful dog Maddison made us feel right at home. Our room was nice, but I wish we asked for the room with a nice tub to soak in. Breakfast was outstanding--kudos all around. Everything is within walking distance too.

Our experience was delightful from the moment we stepped in the door. Ken and Barbara were wonderful, friendly hosts, ready to help as much or as little as we needed. Our room had a cozy, charm appeal yet spacious because it wasn't over decorated and the beds were very comfortable. The location couldn't be better for walking to shops and... More

The room was beautiful, bed was very comfortable. Breakfast was wonderful, you felt like you were staying with good friends. We had to leave early on our last day, the Innkeepers made sure we had a light breakfast before we left. Location was perfect, lots of places within walking distance to eat and shop. We will be back!

After a harrowing trip through Donner Pass in the ice and snow, I was delighted to land at the Madison House in Nevada City. The property is located conveniently downtown near shopping and restaurants. The rooms are individually decorated, spacious, charming and so clean. Charming hosts, Barbara and Ken can guide you if you need suggestions of local things to... More

It was a pleasure staying at the Madison House. It is beautifully furnished and a little gem. Our upstairs front room was small, as you would expect in a historic home, but very comfortable. The innkeepers have a wonderful art collection on display throughout, and they are in the process of upgrading the home further. We also enjoyed the comfortable... More

My wife, son and I stayed in "Lisa's" room while in town for a wedding. Everything was perfect. Barbara and Ken were very friendly and helpful, breakfast was always very tasty and the location was perfect, we didn't need to drive the whole weekend! Everyone had a great time and we would definitely stay at the Madison House next time... More

This is a perfect place to enjoy downtown Nevada City, close to all activities and events or just quiet times if you'd like. Each room is uniquely designed, facing differing sides of the home. Public areas are nice, open and light-filled in lovely weather, a fresh, new art gallery awaits. The host and hostess were outgoing, willing to share all... More

We stayed in the Victorian room at the Madison while in Nevada City for a wedding. It's a gorgeous, gold rush era Victorian, tastefully decorated and spotlessly clean. It's conveniently situated within walking distance of everything in the historic downtown, with off street private parking. The bed was delightfully cozy and comfortable. Our hosts, Ken and Barbara, were warm and... More
