Mendota Lake House B&B is in a fabulous location. The rooms are big, airy, and have comfortable beds. Some of the rooms have balconies that overlook Lake Mendota. Our stay there was comfortable and pleasant. However, where was the breakfast? We were told breakfast was served from about 7:30 to 10:00 Upon arriving in the dining room at 8:30 for "breakfast" I found three pieces of cheese, an English muffin sitting in a package near a toaster, a few bananas and peaches (same ones as on the table the night before). I kept waiting, expecting more food to be brought out. There were two containers of cold cereal sitting on a buffet table. But that was it!!
A few other amenities were also missing: no hair dryers in the rooms. Also, some cheese, cookies or some other dessert or sweet item would have been appreciated in the evening.
Bob, the host was extremely helpful, kind and welcoming.
If you want a comfy, pleasant place to stay in a great Madison location, this is great. Just don't expect breakfast. Expect a pleasant hotel.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Want to be on the lake and downtown? We are on a hill overlooking Lake Mendota, Madison's largest lake. And we are a 15 minutes walk to the State Capitol building. Sunsets are breathtaking. We are on a busy street in a funky neighborhood with eclectic shops and award winning restaurants, and we are one mile from the University of Wisconsin campus. In our back yard is lake Mendota and complete tranquility where you can take a stroll along the lakeshore path, or sit back and watch the boats while the sun is setting. While we don't serve a hot breakfast, guests enjoy a hearty continental breakfast with fresh and organic products. We will provide you with what we look for in our own travels -- a clean room with a comfy bed at a reasonable price in a great location. 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. Languages spoken include French, Italian and Spanish. We are always making updates as time and money permits. And while we do have some fancy upgrades happening, our goal is to keep things simple which translates to keeping it affordable. Hope to see you soon! ... more less
