At Mendota Lake House Inn and Bed and Breakfast, our model is casual and laid back.  We don’t have a lot of expensive antiques and we don’t have an evening social hour.  If you are looking for a traditional B&B with lots of attention, big breakfast and service, we are not that.

We are centrally located in Madison and just one mile from the UW Madison campus.   Our breakfast is light, organic and served continental style, and we feature Batch Bakehouse scones.   We have a communal breakfast table where you might find lively conversations with fellow travelers,  or you may prefer an intimate dining experience in one of our lakeside common rooms.  We strive to give you an authentic, home-like setting, in a fabulous location and at the best price in town.  We are very light on service – once you check in, we never enter rooms.   Because Bob and David have their own private apartment in the lower level, the entire house is for our guests — including the kitchen should you want to save money and eat in.  And because we are doing all our own restoration over time, we are not museum quality.    We insist on clean and comfy, and you will be impressed with our views of the lake.  And, we have some of the best restaurants in town within a short walk from our property.

Check in is 3PM or later, check out is 11AM
