It’s Lambing Season!

If you love animals like we do, then you may want to consider a stay in the near future at The Hen to get an up close and personal look at the lambs that are coming.  For all our repeat guests, Buster is well known.  He’s the lamb that was bottle fed (by many of our guests!) last winter and now he thinks he’s a dog.   He’s had quite an adventurous life here so far and we’re even working on a children’s book about him.  After all, he did have 834 followers last year on Facebook when we recorded his sad story, but it’s turned out well for him in the end!    Tom even considered changing our name to “The Speckled

The Badger Den Gets a Make-Over

Well, it’s sad to say, but the Badger Den’s University of Wisconsin Badger Theme wasn’t a hit with the ladies.  Yes, the guys really liked it, especially with all the UW memorabilia, but it’s the gals that make the decision on the room, right?  So, in listening to our guests, we have given the Badger Den a make-over – and so far comments are favorable! There’s still the beautiful, large bath with a claw tub & a separate shower, and the room still has the great pasture view and window seat along with a fireplace and large flatscreen TV – so it’s a win-win for the guys and the gals.

Making Homemade Maple Syrup

Making Homemade Maple Syrup

A specialty of the Speckled Hen Inn Bed and Breakfast is our breakfast feasts. We always provide our guests with fresh eggs from our wonderful hens, seasonal fruits or vegetables from the property, fresh baked goods, and homemade entrée creations that just make a heart happy. Many locals will travel around the state to find excellent maple syrup but we are fortunate to have acreage populated with Silver Maple trees growing along the creek, the required equipment and the personal motivation spurred by a passion for quality. Yes, indeed, it’s the season of maple syrup making in these parts.   Given the name, maple syrup, it is usually assumed that the product can only be made from sap of sugar maple trees

Favorite Things To Do on a Rainy Day in Madison WI

It might not be spring showers here in Madison but fall brings with it a whole different type of rainy weather; the kind that can make you want to cozy up on the couch with a book and a mug of hot chocolate. Fortunately, regardless of the weather, this city always seems to have something to do. So here are a couple of our favorite things to do on a rainy fall day in Madison WI. Being the state capital has advantages, like housing some of the most treasured artifacts of Wisconsin and beyond. Because of this, and the fact that many of them are free of charge or donation, if you have never been, the museums of Madison should
