Lovely, homey house. Beautiful lake views. Easy walk to downtown and campus.

The whole experience was great. My only suggestion would be for coffee pot in the room because I enjoy drinking coffee while still in my night clothes. Other than that, it was wonderful!!!

Wonderful location and garden, terrific hosts but we should not have picked a room on the third floor.

Beautiful views. Nice people. Convenient location.

It was a wonderful location on the lake. We were easily able to walk to restaurants for dinner. It is close to the university. I loved sitting in the sun room with the view of the lake.

The people working there are absolutely wonderful, and all the little touches were great. I loved the views and was especially appreciative if the breakfast in the morning.

Cozy historic property. Comfy rooms and good breakfast.

Nice and cozy. Loved my experience, I would definitely go back

Beautiful accomodations with gracious and kind hosts.

Cozy B&B with amazing views of the lake! Home away from home.

I went to school at UW-Madison and lived on Langdon street years ago, and always wanted to stay at Lake Mendota House. Finally got to do so and it was better than I imagined! Beautiful house built around 1910 (?) and the gardens around the house we’re magnificent too. Would highly recommend it!

Gorgeous Inn, friendly innkeepers. Beautiful view on the lake. Spacious rooms. Great small breakfast. Seriously had an amazing experience. Close to UW Madison. And free parking!

Great stay. Close to downtown and UWM. Clean, comfortable and unique!

Pleasant stay except that the room was too hot for comfortable sleeping and we didn't see a way to adjust the heat in our room. We should have asked the staff when we checked in.

nice little bed and breakfast. nice owners and staff. enjoyed my stay.

The b & b owners were nice & had good suggestions. We wish the bathroom was more updated. The bed was listed as a queen, but it felt small.
