The Speckled Hen Inn is located at 5525 Portage Rd. just outside Wisconsin’s capital city on 20 beautiful acres. The B&B is just 7.5 miles from the Capitol Square and the campus of the University of Wisconsin and near the Dane County airport and Madison College. This country inn is the perfect place for a romantic getaway, birthday and anniversary celebrations, reunions with family or friends, business travelers, or for Moms and Dads looking for University of Wisconsin lodging.

The 20–acre property features pastures with llamas and sheep, grassland and wetland areas, two creeks, spruce and pine plantations, orchards, walking trails and flower and vegetable gardens.

The Speckled Hen Inn is a proud member of the Travel Green Wisconsin Certification program and is committed to sustaining not only the ecosystem of which it is a part, but also the culture, the economy, and the sense of place that people enjoy in this part of the Midwest.

We welcome your visit and look forward to sharing the bounty of our land, the beauty of the region, and the hospitality of our community.
