The Space

I have a small but luxurious guesthouse, about the size of a garage (never was a garage, we built it as my office) with spectacular vistas AND ACCESS TO LAKE MENDOTA and our lovely garden in Madison, WI. There is a small bathroom with a shower and fluffy towels and a bedroom with a king size bed, brand new mattress and crisp, ironed linens. There is a cute cupola in the ceiling as well as a skylight and it is decorated with antique china on the walls, colorful furniture and rugs and privacy from our main house. We use only organic and natural cleaning products on the premises. Location is excellent, walking distance to state capital and UofW campus. The cottage has air conditioning, TV, and WiFi. We also have a PIER (on the water) Lake Mendota to enjoy the rowers, sailboats, etc. going by. Maybe sit and picnic during sunset? Within a few short blocks are many amazing restaurants that have made Madison a go to place for more than the University and business meetings.
On a bus line, access to Lake Mendota for guests, WIFI
