Awarded Top 10 US B&B and Best of Madison Gold Medal. Allow us to welcome you to our beautiful, full log, 44-acre home and passion, Prevailing Winds Lodge Bed and Breakfast. PWL offers an unparalleled experience in guest comfort, relaxing areas to retreat, indoor and outdoor activities, and an overall sense of peace and much needed escape. PWL was built in 1996 with great attention to fine detail. Genius was the craftsman who forged the lodge to include stunning design and character. Features such as reclaimed wood countertops, a 30-foot field stone fireplace, a handcrafted moose and elk antler chandelier, a Michael Feeney carved dragon, and full chinking between every log leave you longing for the next subtlety and its story.

Prevailing Winds Lodge was more than my husband and I could have imagined. This bed and breakfast was a dream. From the minute you drive onto the property, you're whisked away from the stress and worries. The lodge is tucked back, secluded by nature. We were warmly greeted by Michelle, the owner's cousin, who gave us the rundown and wonderful recommendations for dinner. The room was impeccable and so cozy. And the bed was literally the most comfortable bed I've ever slept in. We were the only couple, so we spent the evening by the fire, pretending the house was ours. Breakfast the next morning was amazing but the company was even better. Steve, one of the owners, treated us as if we had been old friends. One night was not long enough but we know we'll be spending plenty of time at the Prevailing Winds Lodge.

We had a wonderful 2nd stay at your lodge on Valentines day evening. We were greeted by a roaring fire in the huge stone fireplace on a bone chilling below zero night and immediately tried some of the chef and owner Steve's delicious fresh cookies that were available as we relaxed to watch a movie. You are not going to find better hospitality or service than what we experienced at this beautiful facility. The breakfast on Sunday morning was awesome (red velvet pancakes with homemade syrup/frosting ,specialty bacon,three kinds of berries, granola ,yogurt and two kinds of fresh juice). Steve is truly an accomplished chef. I would highly recommend this B and B to anyone who wants a quiet relaxing stay in a gorgeous country setting.

Prevailing Winds Lodge B&B has to be one of the finest accommodations my wife and I have spent time at. Being owners of vacation rental properties ourselves, we feel that we know what it takes to make guests happy, but PWL goes way beyond all expectations. The lodge is impeccable with no attention to detail spared. Although we didn't have the pleasure of meeting Jennifer, Steve more than made up for it with great conversation and assistance. The breakfasts prepared by Steve were world class. Our daughter and son-in-law are moving to the area and we couldn't be happier because it will give us many more chances to visit Prevailing Winds. 5 Star Plus by any standards! Mike & Joy

We did a winter stay at the lodge. We were greeted with a very warm welcome and a dish of wonderful coookies. We were given a tour and some history about the lodge. Then shown our rooms which were beautiful. The entire lodge is very beautiful and very clean. The breakfast was delish! I would highly recommend this lodge for your next stay in the Madison area.

Prevailing Winds Lodge is a favorite place for my husband and I to go for a getaway. We have visited 3 times and every visit seems to be better than the last. The overall ambiance is warm and welcoming. Jen and Steve are so awesome and make you feel right at home. The beds are so comfortable it feels like you are sleeping on a cloud. Breakfast is out of this world incredible. Every time we have breakfast our biggest complaint is we wish we had bigger stomachs to eat more! The eggs are fresh from their chickens and Jen and Steve are conscious of where the food comes from. I love everything about this place, and can't wait for our next stay!

Prevailing Winds Lodge is beautiful, comfortable and clean. Steve and Jen are accommodating, friendly and genuine. The breakfasts are outstanding. They are made from scratch and were enough to hold us until dinner. Steve is a top notch cook! The property and grounds are beautiful. Can't wait to go back. Debbie

Great hosts - personable but not intrusive. Fantastic breakfast - best food ever - all fresh. Decor is log cabin with a modern flair .... Very clean and very comfortable beds¿¿. We had 4 of the 5 rooms so we had the whole place to ourselves - very relaxing. The locale is secluded but very accessible. Would highly recommend it!!

We bid on & won a gift certificate at a charity silent auction for a one-night stay at this B&B, located about 30 minutes from us in Madison, WI. Since it didn't require a flight from us, we were always last minute in checking with them to see availability, but Steve worked with us & let us use the gift certificate two months after it's expiration in order to make sure we could have our overnight. The property itself is just beautiful; the log cabin is gorgeous & it's decorated in a very classic & comfortable way. The little touches like home-made chocolate chip cookies upon check-in, glass bottles of water to take to your room & multiple Keurig stands were much appreciated. The bed was very comfortable & we ended up buying the sheets that they use on the beds from their gift shop b/c they were the best sheets we had ever slept on. That night, we went out to eat at a local fish fry, which was fun. In the morning, the breakfast was out of this world gourmet....two courses & all home-made. The land around the B&B is beautiful & good for hiking. We will definitely recommend this property to both people from Madison looking for a little get-away as well as people from further away & out of state. Thanks so much Steve! -- Jenn K.
