The minute you walk through the gate you feel welcomed. We had a lovely room and the breakfasts were great. Hidden away from the hustle and bustle of a busy city is this gem.

Nothing like waking up to the sweet smell of Bacon at this B&B !!!!!!

I was looking for a bed & breakfast close by the Winchester Mystery house. And came by this little gem and was pleasantly pleased. I couldn't ask for a better B & B. The house is over 100 years old and it was just stunning. There's a pool & jacuzzi in the backyard. They also have a cool pizza oven that the hostess's husband fires up once in awhile. I loved the quaint little room we stayed in. My only problem was the bed was too small for me & my husband. But other then that, everything was great! Wifi was excellent. There was a grocery store near by so we bought bacon for the household to have for breakfast the next day¿¿ We stayed 2 nights over the Labor Day weekend. Our Hostess was very accommodating and even gave us a cookbook from the inn! I look forward to going back soon.

Love this place

I stay at Madison Street Inn every time I'm in the area, if I can get a room. The people are wonderful and the prices are reasonable. They often have dinners, if you can catch an evening with them it is always enjoyable. The house is old, it has it's associated creaks and such, but that's part of the charm. And you get to eat breakfast cooked by a great chef along with interesting people.

Great B&B near Santa Clara campus

Super B&B walking distance to Santa Clara campus. When we stayed there were folks who stay regularly for business in Silicon Valley as well. We were in town to tour Santa Clara and Stanford. Hosts are kind and welcoming, rooms clean and well kept, very easy and nice place to stay.

A beautiful, comfortable and homely place to stay

Following a very long and tedious flight from the other side of the world, I arrived at a place that was welcoming and met all expectations. I was attending a Conference and was glad of a quiet and easy space to recover from jet lag and enjoy the hospitality of hostess and host over the 10 days of my stay. A lovely place to be.

Exactement ce dont nous avions besoins après 11h de vol: un endroit reposant, de gentilles attentions et le petit déjeuner est parfait

This is our third stay at the Madison Street Inn, and we have always loved it. It couldn't be more lovely and friendly and welcoming. LOVED floating in the pool for my 55th birthday this last visit. THANK YOU so much for your kind generosity and welcome - and the doggy kisses poolside!!! Lynn

Great Place to stay

I arrived a little later than expected due to a delayed flight, but check in was easy even though it was outside of the window. Theresa suggested a bunch of great places to eat and was very helpful regarding the area. I stayed for one night and the house was very cozy with many interesting and comfortable places to sit and work. The breakfast was delicious in the morning and check out was just as easy as checking in. Definitely worth it - a great place to stay.

great stay

The only room named after a General instead of a President, the Fremont room is a light, airy corner room with lots of natural lighting.
