Cute, clean, comfortable, and the owners are about as nice as anyone I have ever come across. The house is lovely, the rooms cozy and nice, and it is located at the edge of the heart of Nevada City and thus quiet yet central. Most importantly, this is a very balanced B&B that offers (a) all the comforts one tends...

This is a very nice B & B. It is on the main street of Nevada City, a bit up the hill, right at the beginning of where the shops and restaurants are. The breakfasts were ample and good basic fare: eggs or quiche, juice, fruit, coffee or tea. They set out tea and cookies in the afternoon. The inn...

Excellent location in the historic downtown. We stayed in the Master's Room which had a very comfortable queen bed and private shower. The proprietors can make or break a B&B stay and Ken and Barbara definitely helped make our stay very memorable. Will definitely return on our next trip.

Charming property. Cozy quiet rooms with private bathrooms and the homemade breakfast was seriously delicious. Amazing location in the heart of town, just park at the property and you're within walking distance to all that Nevada City offers. Thank you, Ken & Barbara, for a lovely stay!

I love visiting Nevada City & Grass Valley every chance I get. The vibe is historical, artsy, fun & funky. This month, I met up with my oldest and dearest friend and we stayed at the Madison House, of course. Ken and Barbara, the owners, were there to greet us on Friday afternoon with fresh cookies and smiles. We stayed...

Our room was attractively furnished and clean. It was quiet and the bed was very comfortable. The proprietors, Ken and Barbara were very friendly and the food was delicious. Barbara baked a plate of cookies each day that guests could snack on throughout the afternoon. We enjoyed sitting with the other guests at breakfast and discovering how much we had...

We loved this B&B! The location is perfect: easy walking distance to everything from restaurants and historical sites to a lovely little trail system. Ken and Barbara (and, I'm sorry. I'm sure they have heard it their whole lives but ... KEN AND BARBIE!) were hospitable innkeepers who checked in on us just the right amount. Barbara's breakfasts were so...

My daughter and I had a wonderful stay at the Madison House B & B. We stayed in Lisa's Room. It was very comfortable and clean. Breakfast was delicious. Great location in downtown Nevada City. Parking is included behind the property, which is great because parking is hard to find there. The owners were very helpful and kind.

The B&B was adorable, clean, and perfectly located in charming Nevada City. I stayed for a friends wedding and Ken and Barbara could not have been more pleasant or accommodating. They were great from pre-booking all the way until the moment I left. I would definitely stay again.
