Tom and Heather are the new owners of Speckled Hen and are just as hospitable as the previous owners. There are numerous areas to enjoy the well maintained grounds and watch the animals. The rooms are clean and the common areas provide additional things to do for comfort and relaxation. The farm to table breakfasts were tasty and filling as well!
The Speckled Hen is quite simply the best Inn we have ever stayed at.Pat, Bob and their wonderful (and aptly-named) dog Happy have striven to anticipate every need and provide every comfort. We stayed for three glorious days in the Starkweather Creek Room. Breakfasts were exceptional with eggs, fruit and maple syrup sourced from the property. This is the sole place that we would ever stay at in Madison. Cannot recommend it highly enough.
***** on every level
I took a tour of the Inn and took part in a wine and cheese pairing recently. Everything from the unique rooms, atmosphere, landscaping, farm, food and the the owners was excellent. It really is true farm to table. I would recommend to anyone that I know.
The Speckled hen is a beautiful and quiet place to stay. The hosts are friendly and talented couple who made us feel like family. The farm supplies many fresh foods used in the unique gourmet breakfast. Loved the many comfortable shared rooms and the treats provided.The gardens are colorful and well tended. The walks are relaxing, and the bedroom, oh-so comfortable. We'll be back.
