This is a fairy tale airbnb cottage with a welcoming door wreathed in morning glories, and a jumbly flower garden filled with Buddhas and bunnies and birds, and a private little dock on Lake Mendota where we enjoyed fresh hot coffee at dawn and crisp Chenin Blanc at dusk. This was a ridiculously delightful little sojourn for a lovely Madison weekend. It's a bit tiny, yes, but that's part of the charm. If you want a big expansive space, just move on. If you want every inch full of charm, reserve now!

What a charming little guest house a few walkable blocks from downtown! Super comfy in a cozy private guest house. Sonja has the best spot in town with free street parking right out front on weekends until 8am Monday. We enjoyed relaxing with wine and cheese to the sunset over Lake Mendota from her dock chairs. Just beautiful. Sonja is such a sweet woman. We feel luck to have stayed here. Thanks so much!

Sonja's guesthouse is everything you'd hope -- peaceful, in the midst of lovely gardens, clean, beautifully designed, and in a wonderful location next to the park and a private short walk to the lake. We loved walking down the short path to the pier and sitting at table at the end, looking over Lake Mendota to the lights of the UW Memorial Union.
