Environmental Emphasis

Arbor House's mission is to provide the art of hospitality within a model for urban ecology. Our goal is the wise use of resources and providing guests with an unparalleled combination of natural design, features, fabrics, amenities and surroundings, while providing opportunities for recreation and learning more about urban ecology. This environmentally conscience bed and breakfast resides in one of Madison's most nature accesible neighborhoods, with trails and lakes within walking distance.
