Iron Gate Inn

Originally built as a single family home built circa 1840, the Iron Gate Inn is a charming Madison bed and breakfast that pays honor to the past with all the convenience of modernity. Upon entering, guests are immediately welcomed into a grand parlor with 13 feet tall ceilings and 11 feet tall Jefferson windows, four original ceiling lamps converted from gas to electric, three of which tell the tale of the aging of man. The original summer kitchen is now the Secret Garden Suite and the Carriage house in the back still stands today as the garage. The vintage character of the house and its furnishings are complemented by high-speed WiFi throughout, modern security features of electronic outside door locks for easy entrance, outside perimeter cameras, and monitored smoke alarms for the safety of guests.

Guests have their pick of four comfortable guest rooms with adjoining bathrooms, each with a personality of its own. The grand parlor offers a large 10′ tall china cabinet, various reading material, and vintage furniture for those who want to relax and put their feet up. A full gourmet candlelight breakfast is enjoyed by long weekend guests served on vintage fine china with a fruit bowl, pastry, an entree, coffee, tea, and juice.  Weekday guests enjoy a simpler American style breakfast with coffee, tea, and juice.
