I love visiting Nevada City & Grass Valley every chance I get. The vibe is historical, artsy, fun & funky. This month, I met up with my oldest and dearest friend and we stayed at the Madison House, of course. Ken and Barbara, the owners, were there to greet us on Friday afternoon with fresh cookies and smiles. We stayed... More

Our room was attractively furnished and clean. It was quiet and the bed was very comfortable. The proprietors, Ken and Barbara were very friendly and the food was delicious. Barbara baked a plate of cookies each day that guests could snack on throughout the afternoon. We enjoyed sitting with the other guests at breakfast and discovering how much we had... More

We loved this B&B! The location is perfect: easy walking distance to everything from restaurants and historical sites to a lovely little trail system. Ken and Barbara (and, I'm sorry. I'm sure they have heard it their whole lives but ... KEN AND BARBIE!) were hospitable innkeepers who checked in on us just the right amount. Barbara's breakfasts were so... More

My daughter and I had a wonderful stay at the Madison House B & B. We stayed in Lisa's Room. It was very comfortable and clean. Breakfast was delicious. Great location in downtown Nevada City. Parking is included behind the property, which is great because parking is hard to find there. The owners were very helpful and kind.

The B&B was adorable, clean, and perfectly located in charming Nevada City. I stayed for a friends wedding and Ken and Barbara could not have been more pleasant or accommodating. They were great from pre-booking all the way until the moment I left. I would definitely stay again.

We had a great stay with Barbara and Ken. They were super welcoming, very casual, and made some amazing breakfast. We felt very relaxed and comfortable throughout our stay. Both breakfasts were very tasty, healthy, and fun. I would recommend staying here. The only thing to be aware of is the upper front room is a touch loud given it... More

Madison House B&B is a charming Victorian (and former parsonage) right on the main drag (Broad St.) in Nevada City so easy access to the still quaint Gold Rush era town. Our room was clean, cozy, quiet, and pleasingly furnished with an five star bed. Breakfast was delicious, coffee excellent and the proprietors, Ken and Barbara, welcoming and gracious...and fun.

My family and I had such a nice time that I wish we were able to stay for longer than one night. The rooms and living area are inviting and comfortable, the breakfast was delicious and Madison House is conveniently located next to everything going on downtown. We will definitely go back.
