Fantastic B&B
The Livingston Inn was fantastic. The Inn is in remarkable shape for being 160 years old, they did a wonderful job in fixing it up. The room was big and comfortable. Peggy is a great cook, at least for breakfast, her Swedish pancakes are better than the restaurants. When people comment about the conversations they have at breakfast they are not kidding! Peggy knows so much about that part of Wisconsin and made a couple of suggestions that were right on the money. We had a fantastic long weekend and will be back at the Livingston Inn the next time we go to Madison.

Epic Summer Stay
Very conveniently located to our son’s apartment. Beautiful view of lake for a morning coffee. Breakfast was superb with asparagus soufflé, peach cobbler, bacon,blueberries, coffee and juice. Conversation with owners and guest a plus. Very nice stay

Peggy was an outstanding host. She was generous with her time, helping me to figure out logistics for the nearby wedding I was attending, and went out of her way to show small gestures of hospitality. I had a great time eating her delicious breakfast and playing with her adorable dog; the house itself is delightfully charming, and the lakefront property unparalleled. I can't wait to come back!
