About This Listing
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.
Staying with Meg during my time in Madison has truly been a great experience. Meg is such a welcoming and kind person, a great host! She picked me up at the airport, showed me around Madison, gave me great advice about sites to see and fun things to do, provided me with lovely fruit and just the kind of yoghurt and muesli I prefer for breakfast. Her house is very nice and I very much enjoyed my light room with a desk to work on and a comfortable bed. Being able to use the kitchen to cook was also very helpful for me.
Meg is there with a kind word and useful tips, but she also knows how to mind her own business and lets you mind yours, which I think is a nice virtue in a host, especially during longer stays.
I highly recommend staying at Meg's, particularly for those visiting the UW campus.
Meg is good people! She is very friendly and very enthusiastic about Madison. She is a great resource for information on things to see and do around town. I really appreciated her flexibility with my accommodation as a newcomer to the area. She really went above and beyond as a host. I am much more acclimated to my new surroundings because I know Meg.
Meg's great!! Her house, probably from around 1915, is gorgeous - well-maintained, thoughtfully arranged, uncluttered, comfortable. The beautiful pictures don't do it complete justice! The rooms are spacious and Meg has everything you might need in exactly the places you might need them. The neighborhood is an architectural study with the Chancellor's house and a Frank Lloyd Wright home. Everything you need is within walking distance, including Madison's bike rental stations. No need for a car once you get here. Meg's place is a gem among gems in Madison!
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.
