Welcome to the Governor’s Mansion Inn and Cafe. Our historic boutique hotel and cafe is located in beautiful downtown Madison, Wis. on the shore of Lake Mendota. We are in the Mansion Hill district just a short walk to the State Capitol, to the State Street shopping district and the UW Madison campus. We have a range of guest rooms to suit a variety of lodging needs and price points along with complimentary coffee and scones each morning.
Daily 7AM-3PM cafe will remain closed until April 2022
