Great way to start the year!

My husband and I spent two wonderfully relaxing nights at Token Creek Eco-Inn and loved every minute! What a beautiful place to retreat, unplug, clear our heads and get ready to tackle a new year! Thanks so much to Jean and Jason for the incredible hospitality, fabulous food and great conversation. We hope to be back in the future!

Perfect getaway and lovely hosts!

My husband and I recently returned from celebrating our anniversary at Token Creek Eco-Inn. The hosts (Jean and Jason) were beyond lovely and accommodating. And the food. THE FOOD! Jean is a whiz in the kitchen (and I hear Jason is no slouch, either!). Our room was extremely clean and comfortable. Loved the jacuzzi tub, too! It was a very relaxing visit. Definitely not your typical B&B - and exactly what we were looking for. Thanks again and we look forward to visiting with you on our next visit to Madison!

Loved their dedication to green living.

This was a refreshing change from the usual Victorian B&B. Token Creek was in a serene, rural setting – yet only 15 minutes away from everything Madison has to offer. Jean was a very delightful hostess, and very accommodating. I loved the whirlpool bath--with Epsom salts!

Wonderful Visit - Anniversary

My wife and I recently returned from celebrating our anniversary at Toke Creek Eco-Inn. The room was extremely clean and comfortable...just what we were looking for. Loved the house décor and Jean was a great host. She provided us with good suggestions for our leisurely hikes/runs. The breakfast was wonderful and fresh…the eggs were some of the best I have ever tasted! Jean and Jason were very friendly and we enjoyed nice conversation with them and the other guests at breakfast. It was a very pleasant and relaxed visit…thanks again and we hope to be back upon our next visit to Madison.

Nice Break on a Busy Day

I found the Token Creek Eco-Inn while I was looking for a quiet place to stay during a business trip to the Madison area. My experience was restful and relaxing and Jean made an excellent recommendation for a quick dinner and offered a delicious, healthy breakfast the next morning. The Capitol room as comfortable and well appointed. I hope to return for another non work-related trip with my husband. A lovely B and B in a wonderful location.

A wonderful experience

My wife and I had a wonderful stay at the Token Creek Eco-Inn. Jean and Jason were wonderful hosts, and were very accommodating in helping us book our stay last minute. The breakfast was outstanding and the house/grounds were fantastic. My wife and I have stayed at dozens of bed and breakfasts, and she said this was the cleanest one we have ever stayed at (which means a lot coming from her, as she is very picky about cleanliness). We would highly recommend staying here!

Wonderfully accommodating for those needing gluten free

5 on June 24, 2014

We had a truly wonderful experience at Token Creek! The owners are wonderfully accommodating and the location is very peaceful/relaxing. To find a B&B that was knowledgable regarding the ins and outs of gluten free dining was such a relief. It was a real treat to be able to fully enjoy our stay without worrying about the safety of food prep/ingredients. Jean was very thorough and checked every ingredient which was so helpful!

Innkeeper Response
Thank you Liz for your kind review! I really enjoy cooking for people with special food needs - since I have so many dietary restrictions myself I know how hard it can be to find safe food away from home. We really enjoyed having you and Andrew stay with us for your wedding anniversary and hope to see you again someday!

So comfortable and relaxing

My wife and I were in Madison for a weekend away and had the pleasure of finding this B&B online. Over a hyper-local and delicious breakfast the conversation with the owners and other guests was very interesting. In fact, if we didn't have to get back home we could have sat at there much longer. I would highly recommend Token Creek if you're in the Madison area. It's very close, but gets you out of all the noise and chaos of the city.

Anniversary Trip

My wife and I recently visited our daughter at UW-Madison. Jean and Jason were great hosts. Great room, delicious breakfasts, and beautiful grounds. We hope to return.

Mini Vacation for my 50th Birthday

5 on October 11, 2013

After a busy early fall with our son getting married and my 50th birthday, my husband and I wanted to take a mini vacation to WI for a B&B adventure and visiting local mircrobreweries. Token Creek Eco Inn won our business b/c of their Arts and Crafts decor and commitment to preservation of the land. Jean provided us with a wonderful experience. Our room was perfect. The bed was so comfortable that we were able to sleep in each morning! Jean made us sinfully delicious and healthy breakfasts and we learned a lot about the sustainability of the local organic farmer. We highly recommend staying here and we'll be back!
