This has been a third year in a row we have stayed at the Inn while attending the quilt show. The view is beautiful and the owners are very friendly. It was very quite and peaceful and enjoyed the animals and walking trail. Awesome breakfast and comfortable room.

We stayed at The Speckled Hen in early September. The views are gorgeous and there are lots of places to walk around. This was a quick stay for us and didn't get to enjoy all the amenities but there are a lot of things to do on the property. A great sitting room, a puzzle area, movie room, seating outside,... More

We had a delightful stay at the Speckled Hen Inn! The room was perfect- clean, specious, all the amenities, and it had a great window nook looking out over the property. We could watch the animals (Lily the Llama was especially enchanting) from our room, the wrap around outer deck, or from around the fire pit which was so nice... More

The wife and I had an amazing time. These are new owners of the existing Speckled Hen Inn. They so blessed with the gift of hospitality. The rooms are very spacious. Very comfortable. Breakfast is from farm to table. I cannot say enough. We had an amazing time and we're very happy.

We only stayed for one night but definitely plan to come back later this year. The inn is a great place to relax and enjoy nature, still being close to the city of Madison. Rooms are clean and the hosts very friendly, They thought about everything. Breakfast was delicious!

Went last wk, Family friendly spotlessly clean, Waitress very attentive. Maybe because we where the only ones in. Disappointed you don't have your salted chilli chips still on the menu. Otherwise cannot fault this place our food was fabulous. A good ole country feeling.
