Bob and I are both natives of Missouri. We met in college in the late 60’s and were married in 1973. We moved to Madison in 1978 and purchased the 50-acre parcel where The Speckled Hen Inn is located in 1984 and began construction and landscaping in 1986. We completed the building of our home in 1990 and raised our two children in the house that is now the Inn. In 2000, I opened the Speckled Hen Inn. Bob retired from his “day job” of 32 years in 2005 and became the full-time assistant innkeeper .
Over the years, we have developed our interests in entertaining, cooking, gardening and wine appreciation. They tell me that I have the creative genes that are best reflected in the decor of the Inn and interesting gourmet breakfasts served at the Inn. The Inn is known for its breakfasts, warm ambiance and genuine hospitality. Many of the breakfast entrées use ingredients produced at the Inn by the Innkeepers. Bob is the assistant chef, head gardner and is responsible for the upkeep of the 50 acre estate. The Inn is proud to be a member of Travel Green Wisconsin.
