Verdant & Versatile

5 on May 28, 2015

Hey! City Dwellers! Tired of the daily concrete development wrapping around you? Looking for a change of pace? Springdale Inn B&B offers a soft, green landing for your weary psyches. Floor to ceiling windows bring the outside in or hike, bike the area. Just sitting and absorbing the natural world for awhile on one the large porches is okay too. It's all good. And if the rain rolls through the area? Relax! There's lots to do inside with family and friends in the comfortable common spaces including board games, pool table, and ping pong. Our stay there last Sunday (May 24, 2015) was delightful. We'll be back for sure.

Springdale Inn is amazing. We primarily stay at B&B's when we travel and out of all B&B visited, Springdale Inn is our favorite. Accommodations are clean. The service is outstanding. The entire B&B is gorgeous. The walking trails, through a newly restored prairie, afford a nice opportunity to see the night sky and a beautiful ancient Oak Tree. The B&B is in a great location as its in close proximity to various hiking trails, various restaurants, night life, etc. Nancy's approach to guests is of the best we've encountered. She was the most gracious and went out of her way to accommodate our early morning schedule. We have never, before, been treated so kindly. If you are looking for a place to stay in, or near Verona, stay here. There is no need to look any further.

Wonderful B&B

This was our first B&B and we will definitely be going back when in Madison area. The Sunrise room was wonderful (pictures don’t do it justice) and it had all the bathroom amenities you could need. The house is new and very clean, and Nancy and her staff made us feel welcome the minute we arrived. The breakfasts were amazing!! Nancy made homemade french toast, crepes, cinnamon rolls, egg bakes - all made with local and organic ingredients. Along with the breakfasts, they served wine, cheeses, cookies, and tea/coffee throughout the day. The views and the property were also a wonderful surprise. Even though it was a little chilly we explored the property trails/creek. I would highly recommend Springdale Inn to anyone. Thank you Nancy and staff for making our trip better than imagined!!

Who knew there was GOLD in WI?

This nugget was found by accident and by luck and I am thankful for it. My company normally uses the corporate hotels in the area, however, due to no vacancies set me up at this B&B. For being my first experience at a B&B it was a delight. As I explained to Nancy, it took me back "many" years to my childhood of growing up on a farm. The hardest part was sleeping in since I did not have to muck the stalls or feed the animals. "Nancy" the owner is very friendly and comforting... almost like talking to a long lost friend. If ever in the area, and under my control, I will definitely be back.

Best Bed & Breakfast

5 on October 06, 2014

I accompanied my fiance on his business trip to Verona for training on the Epic campus. The campus was only a 5 minute drive for him and we enjoyed fantastic breakfasts together- french toast, quiche, and homemade crepes! This bed and breakfast was a refreshing retreat for us. Beautiful views and serene atmosphere all orchestrated by the warm welcoming owner, Nancy. This little jewel definately enhanced our trip to WI.

Great Place To Relax

Once we found the place, we had a great experience. The place was beautiful, clean and comfortable. Breakfast on the deck was marvelous.

Awesome and Affordable!

Nancy is a most welcoming hostess, whose bubbling generosity is only matched by the splendor of her "Pocket Prairie". This 2012 B&B is designed for energy efficiency, which basically means there are giant south facing windows that let in radiant natural light throughout the house. Our Sunrise Room was clean and comfy, and the bathroom offered high quality soaps and lotions; there were even soft robes to snuggle in while we took in the view. We enjoyed a magical walk through the prairie, down to a burbling creek; Birding from the large hilltop patio overlooking the countryside; and breakfast, what a breakfast! Nancy and her grandson brought us coffee, and fresh cherry juice, a starter of vanilla yogurt with berries, then came the organic crustless quiche she made with fresh veggies from her garden, and finally mini cinnamon buns! For all this, we paid the same amount you'd pay for a decent king suite in a hotel. This is a singular B&B run by a singular woman, do yourself a favor and see it for yourself!

Nancy is a great innkeeper. Her home is just beautiful. I could sit all day and view the beautiful meadows and wildlife. Her attention to detail was surprising. Can't say enough about such a nice Bed & Breakfast

Great B&B

4.8 on July 17, 2014

We've stayed at the Springdale Inn three times. Can't say enough nice things. Nancy, the proprietor's, home is beautiful and immaculately maintained. The grounds and views are spectacular and the Inn features a great outdoor deck plus covered front porch which a great places to "hang out" . My son and I are competitive cyclists and ride the Horrible Hilly Hundreds each year. Talk about being accommodating; Nancy got up every time at 5:30am to provide a gourmet breakfast (eggs, homemade granola, bacon.....yogurt...the works). Not sure where else they do that. Great spot!!

My Retirement Celebration at peaceful beautiful Springdale Inn

5 on July 10, 2014

I highly recommend this Inn to all of you. I left a very stressful job and needed to unwind. This was the perfect place. Nancy helped me to relax! The food was delicious (she even packed a plate for me to take on my state park and lake tour with fresh rhubarb and cherry strudel, homemade granola and an oatmeal muffin with maple syrup glaze-WOW!!), the room and bath were beautiful and spotlessly clean. My husband loved watching the wild turkeys and many birds, hiking to the old oaks, studying the natural prairie and looking out over the beautiful peaceful valley and farms. We both enjoyed talking to Nancy, as she is very friendly and knowledgeable about many interesting and varied subjects. We did a lot of exploring, as Springdale is very convenient to anything we wanted to do (trout fishing, hiking, Madison, etc). As you can tell, we loved this Inn and will definitely come back and can't wait to do so!!
