We stayed @ the Livingston Inn for 6 nights this April - quite an extended stay at a B&B! To our delight, the inn keepers and the inn met or exceeded our expectations every day. This was an incredibly busy week for Peggy and Dave, as the Madison Film Festival was in full swing and Peggy devotes much energy to...

This is the second time I have stayed at the Livingston Inn. Peggy and Dave are very friendly, gracious and knowledgeable about the area. Their residence is very charming, and the location is great in a quiet neighborhood with lots of amenities within walking distance. Breakfast there is a real home cooked meal, and delicious! I would highly recommend this...

We only stayed at the Livingston Inn for one night in February, but it was a very nice experience. Our room had a fireplace, which was great in the cold February weather. Peggy was very easy to talk to, and the breakfast was quite good. She also made decaf coffee for me, which was very nice, as I was the...

I had not been back to Madison since I graduated in 1961. My wife and I returned for a long weekend to visit with our grandson and his girlfriend who are both graduate students there now. We always prefer a Bed and Breakfast over a motel or hotel. Much more pleasant and personal. We chose the Livingston Inn and were...

We were visiting family and had a wonderful stay with Peggy and Dave over Easter weekend. It was our second stay and we would not stay elsewhere (unless the Inn is full, of course). Rooms are very comfortable and the house has good amenities and areas to sit. Located by one of the Lakes and very walkable to the center...

Can't recommend it highly enough - from the warm greeting to the farewell hug. Peggy does it right! Beautiful, clean rooms, a glass of wine welcome and a delicious breakfast made for a great getaway. Walking distance to some wonderful neighborhood restaurants and bars for an added bonus.

The Livingston Inn is the perfect home if you visit Madison. I spent three days there and could not have been happier with my choice.

My husband had business in Madison so I tagged along, and we went early and explored the city some. The Livingston Inn was the perfect home base. The house is stunningly beautiful but comfortable and homey too. It's convenient to the capitol area, the University and shopping. Our room was charming with a cozy fire, and the bed was quite...

Great location near downtown Madison. The Inn is beautiful and just feels comfortable. Our room was really nice, with a large bathroom, view of the lake, and a fireplace, which we used since it was very cold while we were there. Our hosts were fun to talk to and helpful with ideas of where to eat or directions to locations....
