It was a nice treat to stay in such an historic home. We loved the antiques. It was like going back in time. Tom was our host. He made us feel right at home. Our room was comfortable and the breakfast was delicious. We found the rates to be quite reasonable. The town center is a short distance away and was very quaint. We live far away but hope to return to the Fargo Mansion sometime in the future. Jim & Lynda S. Columbia, Maryland

We--four girl friends from Ohio and Kentucky--recently spent two wonderful nights in the Fargo Mansion Inn. I would highly recommend a stay here. The hosts, Tom and Barry, are warm and gracious. The rooms clean and comfortable. The breakfasts were outstanding. We felt we were staying in a home away from home. The restored late Victorian home is beautiful and Lake Mills is charming. If you find yourself looking for a place to stay near Madison, Wisconsin, put Fargo Mansion Inn at the top of your list.

We once again enjoyed the charm and hospitality offered by Tom & Barry at Fargo Mansion. The relaxing atmosphere of the home, town and people brought us back. We enjoyed reading about the history of the Fargo Mansion, the surroundings and especially its original owners. The history comes alive hearing Tom provide details of the times and families. Relaxing in your room, on the porch or inside makes the visit special.

We stayed for 4 days in early October. The house is wonderful. This outstanding example of the Victorian Estate House may show a little age on the outside but is great inside. The rooms are fresh and tastefully decorated. Decor is spectacular. Breakfast was grand and owner's service was great. We will find our way back some day.
