We highly recommend staying at the Edgewater when visiting UW Madison. An excellent location, close to campus, and an incredible view. The staff, room, and restaurant were all outstanding. We can not wait to visit again.

Had a good time in Edgewater. Old buildings but clean. Food was excellent in taste and portion. Unfortunately the city of Madison has not recovered from the peaceful protest demonstration completely but it is a nice area.

The Edgewater was exactly what I needed. I wanted a peaceful escape from life! I felt like I was in the middle of nowhere with the lake! Food was excellent. Service was amazing from check in to check out. Beds were so comfortable! We will definitely be returning very soon! The spa is must! Ask for Torri she was the best massage therapist I have had!

The Edgewater is a beautiful property. The team was professional, friendly, helpful and all around fantastic. Probably a seasonal thing, but the terrace in our room was unusable due to the size and amount of spiders and webs that hung from the railings and chairs.

FeisFamily2469, It's wonderful to hear you enjoyed your stay and our team members. Thank you for letting us know about the Terrace. We work very hard to keep up with the outdoor "wildlife" all summer long but it sounds like we missed on this occasion. We've shared your review with the rest of our operational departments in an effort to improve. We hope to see you again soon, and encourage a winter visit to the Ice Rink! Best, Anselm Lwali Director of Operations The Edgewater

This was the perfect get away from all the hussle and bussle of the work, the craziness of city life today and the Pandemic. We first reserved a King Room with Terrace. They only have one room with that view on their website so I suggest doing the studio facing the lake. We transferred to that. It was relaxing and big enough to spread out. Oh and the soaker tub wasn’t so bad either. Great get away spot and the spa portion is amazing!
