We stayed at the Speckled Hen Inn recently for our anniversary. Loved our time there! The innkeepers were so friendly and offered warm hospitality. They seem to really enjoy what they are doing and offering for their guests! Our room was clean, comfortable and just as nice as we expected. The breakfast was delicious. We felt as if we had...

We had a great experience at the Speckled Hen Inn, which was our first ever stay at a bed and breakfast. The pleasant experience started from the time we booked our stay and received some great recommendations for local area restaurants (highly reco Tornado Steak House in Madison). We stayed in the Madison Lakes room, which was connected to the...

And...

Yes this home is set on a small farm but it isn't an old farmhouse turned into a B&B. It is a luxurious home, beautifully furnished, and modern. Although it is located convenient to Interstate 90 we heard no road noise. The rooms and suites are large and comfortable. The room we used had a jet tub and large shower...

We returned to the Speckled Inn for a romantic weekend getaway after having been there 11 years ago. It is one of the most memorable places to stay with their own organic food, 20 acres to roam, llama and sheep, comfortable beds and sheets, and rooms with such character and warmth that you never really want to leave. Being on...

The Speckled Hen Inn is just far enough away from the sights and sounds of Madison that you can relax and spend some quiet time. On the other hand, it's close enough to said sights and sounds so that you can easily enjoy all the area has to offer. We stayed in The Token Creek room and loved the fireplace,...
