Madison, Indiana  

    Nestled in the hills of Jefferson County on the north bank of the Ohio river, you will find Madison, Indiana.  A picturesque town filled with history!  Just a short drive from Cincinnati-Ohio, Louisville-Kentucky and Indianapolis-Indiana. I like to call it an Antique type town with a large history.  Filled with great antique shops and malls.  Small local owned specialty stores, great restaurants, historic homes and a great view! Not to mention local wineries.

    Madison is home to some great annual festivals & events.  The Madison Regatta, Chautauqua, Ribberfest, and many more!  Make a trip to one of our family wineries!  Great local golf courses too!!

    Life made simple, a small town with friendly people!  Why not plan a trip to visit our farm, go horseback riding, and spend a few days in a neat town with lots of history! 

    There are many other great hotels, motels, bed & breakfast, historical homes, cabins, and plenty of camping at Clifty State Park.

    Be sure to check out the Madison Visitor Website (link below).  They have all sorts of information on things to do while your here!
