Our daughter was married in the gazebo at the Speckled Hen Bed and Breakfast. Tom and Heather made the event very special with the extra touches. We were able to have our whole family stay and the comfort and intimacy of the Speckled Hen was wonderful!!

Heather and Tom were just fantastic. I had my (very small!) wedding here, and not only were they accommodating, but they just went above and beyond to make sure everything ran smoothly and all of those special little touches were there. The food was fantastic and the rooms were lovely and comfortable. I couldn't have asked for a better wedding...

Tom and Heather are wonderful hosts. A beautiful property for our get-away to Madison. Heather makes a fantastic breakfast using ingredients straight off their farm! The eggs are harvested from their hens that we got to see on our walk around the property. The first breakfast started with a muffin using zucchini grown on the property. If you are looking...

This has been a third year in a row we have stayed at the Inn while attending the quilt show. The view is beautiful and the owners are very friendly. It was very quite and peaceful and enjoyed the animals and walking trail. Awesome breakfast and comfortable room.

I went here for several days at the end of July. It is a wonderful place! We stayed in a beautiful two room suite with a jacuzzi bath tub. The breakfasts were out of this world! The inn keepers were friendly but not over bearing. It was fun to walk the grounds as there are sheep and goats and a...

We stayed at The Speckled Hen in early September. The views are gorgeous and there are lots of places to walk around. This was a quick stay for us and didn't get to enjoy all the amenities but there are a lot of things to do on the property. A great sitting room, a puzzle area, movie room, seating outside,...

We had a delightful stay at the Speckled Hen Inn! The room was perfect- clean, specious, all the amenities, and it had a great window nook looking out over the property. We could watch the animals (Lily the Llama was especially enchanting) from our room, the wrap around outer deck, or from around the fire pit which was so nice...

The wife and I had an amazing time. These are new owners of the existing Speckled Hen Inn. They so blessed with the gift of hospitality. The rooms are very spacious. Very comfortable. Breakfast is from farm to table. I cannot say enough. We had an amazing time and we're very happy.
