Reviewed 25 August 2010

What an amazing place. The house is a tribute to an excellent tradesman. Stayed in the Dollhouse and was the envy of all the other guests. Attention to detail is amazing from the woodwork to the breakfast. Truly an unforgettable experience.

Two steps inside the front door and I was completely at home. No tensions or pretensions here. The inn provides a relaxed atmosphere, and as others have noted, it is within easy walking distance of the beautiful university campus and the historic downtown. Lawrence and Danny are so accommodating, and we left feeling like we had made new friends. I hope we can return there again soon. For those who like local history, be sure to talk with Lawrence about his book that chronicles the story of the nearby mining town of Hanna.

We stayed for just one night at the start of our holiday and wished we could have stayed longer!

Everything about this b&b was just perfect. We stayed in 'Blossom' and had a very comfortable night. Breakfast the next morning was superb with everything being fresh and homemade. The owners put heart and soul into looking after their guests. It's also very handy for walking into the beautiful downtown area with lots of individual shops, restaurants and cafes.

If we are ever anywhere in the vicinity we will certainly stay again. It was one of the highlights of our 3 week trip.

We stayed at The Mad Carpenter for two nights during a recent visit to the University of Wyoming. I cannot recommend this B&B enough! The home is beautiful, the innkeepers are gracious, the food was delicious and the location is convenient. We stayed in the Whimsy and it was amazing.....it contained all the conveniences you expect from luxury hotel, and more! A small refrigerator was stocked with juices and water for us and a chocolate was waiting bedside when we retired. Our bed was very comfortable, with soft sheets and a fluffy comforter. The bathroom was stocked with luxury toiletries, including toothbrushes, toothpaste, razors, soaps, shampoo/conditioner, etc. I enjoyed the soft and fluffy towels, too! The room had cable TV, a ceiling fan, a writing desk, and ample closet space. But the best part was the conversations we had with Lawrence and Danny. They make the experience of a B&B that much more enjoyable! We left too early for breakfast on our departure day and Danny packed us a breakfast basket for our road trip home - it was filled with baked goods, granola bars, fresh fruit, hardboiled eggs, and juices. It was a nice treat to end our great stay at The Mad Carpenter. Don't miss this place if you are ever finding yourself staying in Laramie!

We stayed at the Mad Carpenter Inn for one night and had a very enjoyable time. The inn is within walking distance of downtown and the university. So after a long day traveling, you don’t have to drive. Rooms are comfortable and clean and come complete with little chocolate treats! During a wonderful breakfast, we had an interesting conversation with the other guests. The “Mad Carpenters” love for his craft shows in the word work in the Inn. The only problem was that we were staying for just one night.

We greatly enjoyed our stay. We stayed in The Dollhouse, a detached 2 story house behind the main house which was excellent in every way. The bed was very comfortable, the winding staircase to the upper level beautiful and the jacuzzi great. Our breakfasts were excellent and our host very personable. We felt very much at home. It is only a block from campus. Why stay at a hotel when this is so much better and far more interesting?

My wife and I came to Laramie for a family reunion, and staying here was a super bonus. The house is incredible with all its stunning and tasteful decoration. Our room, the Whimsey, was small but very comfortable. The owners were away, so their daughter, Neika, was our host - and she is such a delightful person. (Make sure she shows you the vaulted Game Room upstairs - amazing piece of work. This place is a real gem - a great gateway to the Snowy Range, our favorite part of the Rockies.
