Paul & Teresa Walters

Paul and Teresa Walters fell in love with Madison several years ago when they accepted an invitation to attend Madison’s annual Nights Before Christmas tour. After spending a lovely afternoon and evening with friends, touring the various historical homes, and experiencing the magic of the holiday season in a way only Madison can create, they were hooked. The warmth of the Madison community and the intrigue of the lovingly restored historical homes had captured their hearts and imaginations. So, when the opportunity arose to become a part of the downtown historic district, they decided to take the leap and make Madison their permanent home.

Now, as the proprietors of The Butterfly House Bed and Breakfast, Paul and Teresa utilize their collective professional and personal skills to create a warm, inviting, and comfortable home for others discovering the wonders of Madison. Because The Butterfly House Bed and Breakfast is both the Walter’s home and their business, guests can enjoy the conveniences every traveler would expect with the added bonus of a homey, welcoming, and comfortable environment that feels a bit like finding a second home. Guests are encouraged to make themselves at home and enjoy the peaceful porches, good food, and comfortable beds after a busy day of exploring the many sites, festivals, and events that populate the Madison social calendar throughout the year.
