excellent tour of splendid historic homes. madiosn is a charming small once rural town. we found excellent accomdations at the james madison inn! the freindly folks at the inn steered us to teh ice house restaurant for supper and we will be forever gratful for the tip too! excellent lodging and meal at the ice house restaurant across the street in a grand city just oozing charm between it's toes like a big hearted boy standing on a river bank with a freshly caught two pound catfish hanging form a wet line. we canot wait to return to madison, don't miss it!
