The Space

Start your day with the morning newspaper in my large kitchen filled with the smell of home-made muffins and coffee. I am located on the near westside of Madison, adjacent to the historic University Heights neighborhood (a great place to walk and admire landmark homes). One mile or less to UW-Hospitals and Clinics, UW campus, Camp Randall Stadium and a wide variety of restaurants, pubs, and coffee shops. One block from two bus routes (#19 and #6). I will be happy to help you plan your time in in the great city of Madison.

This two-story home features your choice of two bedrooms with either a full or queen-sized bed with room for up to four people. Private bathroom with shower and bathtub. Central air-conditioning, ceiling fans, Wi-fi connection, and cable television also available. Off street parking.

I am recently retired from the School of Education at the University of Wisconsin - Madison and I have lived in Madison for 30 plus years. If you like to walk I can give you directions to a zoo, a lake, Indian burial mounds, a Frank Lloyd Wright home, and a confederate graveyard. You can see several of these and still be back for fresh muffins!

By the way, I share my home with a cat named Aida. She is getting a bit old and needy, but otherwise she is very loving. She will not have access to the bedrooms.

  • We absolutely loved being here at Meg's! Her home is big and gorgeous, warm and inviting. Meg is the kind of person you feel you've known all your life. She immediately made us feel at home, and we so much enjoyed just sitting and talking to her. Our only regret is that we didn't have more time to spend here.

  • Prior to the stay, Meg reached out to make sure all the details were in order. We were visiting the University and Meg was kind enough to give maps and some advice. The location is ideal for me - I prefer a quiet neighborhood setting and this lace was perfect. Able to get in my morning run without the buzz of traffics and still have plenty of time to walk down the street for breakfast with my son at a local coffee shop. The house is clean and the room was quite nice. Bath is right outside the bedroom. Parking provided by Meg (off street) was a great help since having a car in Madison can be a headache and on street parking is hour restricted. About a 6 minute walk to Inion South, Camp Randall Stadium, etc. positive experience.

  • Meg made my first Airbnb experience a happy one. My stay wasn't exactly typical, as Meg and I are both math educators and we've worked with some of the same people. That said, I think my stay would have been just as nice even if Meg had been a total stranger. The house was nice and in a beautiful old neighborhood, about a 35 minute walk to Memorial Union on the UW-Madison campus. As advertised, Meg had muffins and more for breakfast, and I really appreciated having a desk in my room to work at in the evenings.

  • This was a wonderful weekend stay. Med is a welcoming and gracious hostess who makes fantastic muffins. She helped me get around Madison and pointed me towards interesting sites and activities. She's pleasant and personable and a pleasure to meet and stay with.

  • I thoroughly enjoyed my time with Meg. She’s a fantastic host, and is located close to the University and to the Capitol.

    We went for dinner, on a number of small outings, and she often sat and listened to me moan over our two months together!

    If you haven’t used Airbnb before (like myself prior to this trip), I throughly recommend booking a stay with Meg, she really is a credit to the Airbnb community.

    If you’re not a fan of ‘morning muffins’, that’s not a problem. Although, I’m not sure whether Meg realised that her suggestion to fill the fridge with beer each week would be met with such enthusiasm!

  • While staying with Meg, I was always wondering why do they have Hilton in Madison. Megs place is way better than any Hilton I stayed before. Warm and friendly atmosphere, cosy house, great cat, and don't forget the muffins! That is all you would need in a cold winter in Madison. There will be no other place for me to stay in Madison from now on. Thank you Meg.

  • Meg was very accommodating and welcoming. She has a beautiful home with all the comforts. I enjoyed a great breakfast and great conversation. I would recommend her home while visiting Madison .

  • I can't say enough about Meg and her hospitality. i was only in town for a little over 24 hours, but in that time she showed me into her home, showed me the town of Madison, and made me feel as if I had been there for a week. Her home was absolutely lovely and filled with charm. It was still a very private and comfortable experience. If I could, I would give her and her home 10 stars. If you are looking to travel through Madison and need a place to call home for a little while, this is an absolutely perfect place both in terms of location (very close to UW) and comfort.

  • Meg was a great host and made me feel right at home during my time in Madison. I would recommend her to anyone who is looking for a great place to stay during their trip to Madison. I would also recommend her for visiting medical students like myself as she was very understanding of my hectic schedule and was ready and willing to help me out in any way that she could so that I had everything I needed both for school and for my stay.
