We were lucky to have gotten to stay with these two and their delightful dogs!! They truly are super hosts. Very thoughtful, friendly, and kind. Even if this was a shared space, there is room for all.

I had a splendid stay with Donna and Norm at their cozy little home in Madison. The arrangements and morning breakfast offered made me really feel like I was home. I definitely recommend this to anyone stopping over at Madison :)

It was a pleasant stay. They had 3 very well behaved dogs so if you are a dog lover or not, there will not be any problem. It is a cozy place with everything that you might need.

Donna and Norm were outstanding hosts. Everything was as described. They were even kind enough to leave a small toiletries basket in my room in case I needed anything (which came in handy when I realized I forgot my toothpaste). I would absolutely stay here again.

Caring, friendly hosts. I truly appreciated their flexibility when I "muffed" my reservation date and needed to readjust. Mind the big indoor dogs, mom dog was a barker.

Hi, Carol. We were glad we could accommodate a change to your reservation. Yes, Cocoa is sometimes loud when new people arrive, but generally settles down once she is familiar with newcomers. In regards to the smell, we use a combination of cypress and lemongrass essential oils to provide odor control, since we have the big dogs. Hope you enjoy the results of the symposium. :-)
