The space

Our house is in the heart of the Dudgeon Monroe neighborhood, one of the best places to live in Madison. There are some great spots nearby including Vic Allen's coffee shop, Brasserie V Pub, Trader Joe's for groceries, New Orleans Take Out and a breakfast favorite of Madisonians: Mickey's Dairy Bar. We are walking distance to the stadium for anyone who is coming in for a football game and close to downtown for anyone who is in Madison on business. Shawn (my fiancé) and I are very flexible - he can stay up late to let people in at any hour.

Guest access

Guests have a private entrance through the garage, private use of the entire bottom floor of the house, a private bathroom with a shower, access to a small fridge and on-site laundry for a small fee.

Interaction with guests

We are happy to interact with guests and are also happy to give them space and privacy if that works better. We go out frequently to get dinner or attend events and guests who like to mingle are invited to come with us if and when we do.

The neighborhood

It's the best neighborhood in Madison!

Great place. Very clean. Handy to have separate entrance and private bath.

Very cozy and doesn't feel like a "garage" at all. The carpet is plushy, the bed is comfortable, and the rooms are well lit. The bathroom is also very clean and had everything I needed that I forgot to bring. Would definitely recommend!

Great place, private entrance and a good amount of space. Bed was on the softer side for me but comfortable. Katie made arrival easy, would definitely stay here again.

The house was great and as described in the listing. Having a private entrance and bathroom was very nice. Being able to stay in a well known Madison neighborhood was a much better way to experience the city than staying in a hotel. Katie had city maps and even a list of her favorite restaurants for our use. The trip was perfect, and Madison is beautiful.

Katie was an excellent host. She contacted me ahead of accepting the booking to make sure both parties could agree on check-in and check-out times acceptable to their needs (it was a weekend with an 11:00am Badger football game). Upon arriving the unit was clean and inviting with notes on how to lock up, what spaces were public or shared, WiFi password, and local favorite restaurants. The space is a finished basement with bedroom, bathroom with shower stall, and living area. It was large and clean, however, there are no windows if that is something that would bother you. Parking spots were readily available on the street with no restrictions. I did get to meet Katie in person briefly and she was very enjoyable company. My stay was short, but I enjoyed it and would definitely stay at this location again.
