The Livingston Inn

Built in 1854, The Livingston Inn is an important landmark in the history of Madison. On the National Register of Historic Places as the William T. Leitch House, the home is constructed of local buff-colored sandstone which was quarried in nearby Westport, barged across Lake Mendota, and cut on the building site. In addition to being a prominent landmark in the City of Madison, The Livingston Inn is an important piece of local history. Two of Madison's first mayors (William T. Leitch, 1862-65 and Moses R. Doyon, 1888-90) lived in the house between the years 1857-1881 and 1881-1902, respectively. In addition, a prominent member of the Progressive movement and a close friend of "Fighting Bob" LaFollette lived in the home in the early twentieth century.

The Livingston Inn is a breaktaking home featuring nine fireplaces, eleven-foot first floor ceilings, lake access, and stunning architectural details inside and out. The house features spacious, beautifully appointed guest rooms on the second floor. With private baths, working fireplaces, and daily maid service, this inn is a delightful respite for its guests.

The Livingston Inn combines the relaxing comfort of a majestic historic home while subtly providing many modern day amenities. All guests are served full breakfast daily and may enjoy Wi-Fi, cable TV, online movies, and daily delivery of local and national newspapers. Close to the airport, downtown, the State Capitol, State Street, and the UW-Madison campus, The Livingston Inn is an ideal location for the business or leisure traveler.

The Livingston Inn is also available for private parties, weddings, and meetings, whether inside the mansion or in the beautifully landscaped garden. Small groups and wedding parties will find great flexibility in planning their event, along with personal service and attention to every detail.

Plan your event or meeting with us, and you'll be sure to make a memorable impression with the grandeur of our historic home.
