Welcome to the Mendota Lake House, a beautiful 1911 arts and crafts B&B located on the lakeshore in downtown Madison.

We are a short walk to the Capitol and a short hike to the University of Wisconsin campus (1 mile.) Rooms have great views of the lake and include a healthy continental breakfast. We are in a vibrant, walkable neighborhood with great restaurants nearby. Languages spoken here include French, Italian and Spanish.

We believe in all natural products, from hair care and hand soap to the cleaning products we use. We shop farmers markets and the local health food store because locally sourced fresh and organic products are important to us.

At Mendota Lake House, we may not be your typical B&B because we don't hover and we have no doilies. Instead, we provide the space for you to feel at home. You will have complete use of the house, including the kitchen if you desire. At our Inn you will find a clean room, a comfy bed, a great location and a good price. From the spacious Oscar Wilde to the smaller, but comfortable Gore Vidal, we have a room for you. Plus, fabulous sunsets! Ask us about renting the entire house for a family or friends reunion.
