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
Guest house of course but also our flower filled back yard with several seating area including a patio table and a water fountain, and roses on fence framing the lake.
Interaction with Guests
We love to visit with our guests but only if you wish and have the time.
The heart of Madison surrounds us. We have the big lake (Mendota) eclectic Willy Street with its great new restaurants, State Street where business and students mingle, the Capital, and the amazingly redone Children's Museum, as well as UW University in walking distance. Rental bikes are also very close by and a bus stops on our corner.
Bus and bike rentals very close. We have a bike to lend out as well
Other Things to Note
We have no pets and we only use organic products.
No smoking please!
This is a charming detached accommodation in the garden of the house, with a great view of the lake and access to a private deck on the lake. The room had everything we needed. The neighborhood is very pleasant and a 10 minute walk to the Capitol and downtown Madison.
Great neighborhood and the listing was very accurate. We could see Lake Mendota from our window. Perfect location to walk to many restaurants. We even walked to the campus stadium. The designer sheets were fantastic and pillows were very comfortable.
This place was a dream. Quiet but close to everything, gorgeous light all day long, clean and welcoming. Sonja was very prompt and clear in all her communications, so even though I didn't get to meet her, I felt like she was there for anything I needed. I look forward to coming back soon and staying in this lovely spot again!
What a wonderful place to stay. The space was excellent -- comfortable, secluded, and perfectly located. Sonja and Jim were extremely generous, and offered us great advice on places nearby. I couldn't ask for a better AirBNB experience. I'd stay there again in a heartbeat. Thanks!
Both hosts made me feel welcome. The place was peaceful and clean and cozy.I was busy while I was there so did not spend alot of time at the cottage.
