Madison is well known for the historic buildings mostly built in the 1800s. Settled in a beautiful valley along the Ohio River, just a short distance to Loiusville, Cincinnati, Lexington, Dayton, Indianapolis and only 3 hours from Columbus. Madison is a "National Historic Landmark District". There is much to do in the Madison area from antique shopping, farmers markets, annual festivals, wineries, skiing, casino, ghost watching and more!

You'll love our rooms! Each room has it's own personality and décor. Our guests tell us they like to stay in a different room each time they come! From Riverfront rooms to private houses and condominiums, we strive to accommodate every individual's needs. Our guests call the Riverboat Inn a Boutique hotel. Large groups welcome!
