Great location only seconds from the university. We stayed in the blossom room which was lovely but not ensuite - there is a private bathroom but its not connected to the room - a small detail but if we had known for $20 extra a night we definitely would have booked the ensuite. The included breakfasts are sublime!!!! Home made...

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at The Mad Carpenter Inn! The Inn keepers, Lawrence and Danny, were so gracious. We enjoyed a delicious continental breakfast. Our room, The Blossom, was very comfortable and loved the charm of the common area with it's sculptured ceiling and beautiful gardens. Lawrence and Danny gave great suggestions for dinner and sightseeing, including The Ivinson...

We stayed two nights in this beautiful B&B. As befits the name, everything is lovingly fashioned in wood. I had serious staircase envy! We chose the Doll House, a separate little cottage at the back, which gave us loads of space to spread out, but we could still go over to the main house for breakfast, served by owners Laurence...

I was on my first solo trip and chose Laramie as my stopover spot between Jackson Hole and Denver. I found the The Mad Carpenter through the high recommendations on Trip Advisor. Everyone was right - great room, warm and friendly hosts, delicious breakfast and a perfect location for walking from the B n B to any one of the...

I loved staying at the Mad Carpenter! I hate to brag too much because I plan on staying here a lot over the next 3 years as my son will be studying at Univ of Wyoming, and I plan on this being my "home away from home", and I don't want it to be too full!!! The hosts were fabulous...

We stayed just 1 night in the Mad Carpenter but would have been very happy to stay longer . The accommodation was very clean, the proprietors very welcoming and friendly , the breakfast was healthy and very tasty. The location is about a 10 min walk to downtown

This place is outstanding. I stayed in what they call "The Dollhouse", no dolls, just some of the most unbelieveable wood craftsmanship I have ever seen. Even my son walked in and said "Holy Crap!" All the comforts of home, extremey well kept, modern everything, comfortable, even a game room.. It's also basically across the street from U of W....

We followed all the other excellent reviews when we chose the Mad Carpenter Inn, Laramie's only B&B. It is spotlessly clean, located just a few blocks from downtown in a lovely neighborhood adjacent to the University. Your hosts Danny and Lawrence are wonderful-super friendly and helpful. Breakfast cannot be beat-fresh fruit, yogurts, granolas, homemade cobbler, french toast and waffles-and the...
