We live in a cape cod style home in the Emerson neighborhood just 3 miles from downtown. It's a pleasant, walkable neighborhood with friendly neighbors and small businesses.
You'll have the entire closet space to store your things, hang your clothes, etc. We'll supply an extra blanket in the closet, a hamper, hangers, a fan, towels, and a suitcase stand. We've since replaced the windows since this photo was taken.
Welcome to Madison! You're going to LOVE IT!
Your comfortable, peaceful, nature inspired bedroom is located on the first floor, right next to the bathroom of a 3 bedroom, 2.5 bathroom home. You'll have your own personal access to your room from the front patio door, and your own closet with hangers. The bed is a queen size with a foam top, cotton sheets, a soft and fuzzy blanket, nice plump pillows, and a heavy quilt. We'll supply an extra blanket in the closet for your comfort, a hamper for dirty clothes, and a small fan for those who enjoy white noise. We also have a spacious back deck with room to soak up the sun, or to entertain a grill out. Our deck table can seat 6 so please feel free to invite your friends or family over for a meal.
Your room is located just beyond the front entryway so you'll have a key to the front door, but we also supply you with a key to the back door as well. (the door we use)
Interaction with Guests
We interact with guests as our schedule and theirs allow. Most of our guests are very personable so we generally spend some time getting to know one another. We're usually pretty busy in the spring, summer and fall months so we spend a lot of time away from the home, but we like it if we're able to meet every guest. We always tell guests that our home is their home, to make themselves comfortable, help themselves to anything in the kitchen, and to let us know if they need anything at all.
We live in the Emerson neighborhood, adjacent to the Atwood neighborhood where there's plenty of small businesses to explore. Our neighborhood is a safe, walkable neighborhood with lots of friendly neighbors.
We offer our bicycles for guests to use, but we also have two bus lines near our home. One is just 1 block from our home and the other is 2.5 blocks. We've had a lot of UW students/professors and they've found it very easy to get around by bus.
We ask that you smoke outside, clean up after yourself, refrain from being noisy after 11pm, but most of all, enjoy yourselves!
I stayed with Cory and Ryan for two months and really enjoyed my stay. They're incredibly kind, hospitable and helpful hosts and are happy to give you tips and tricks to find your way around Madison. They absolutely made me feel like home.
The accomodiations and amenities were exactly as described and pictured. The neighborhood is quiet and peaceful and busses to downtown and UW Campus stop a block away. I had a very pleasant stay here and I would love to come back again if I travel back to Madison. I would recommend staying with Cory and Ryan to anyone!
My friend and I really enjoyed our stay. The room was very cozy and comfortable. Cory and Ryan were very friendly and helpful. They gave us lots of suggestions for activites around the area. I would love stay there again if I travel back to madison!
Notre nuit chez Corry et Ryan a été parfaite! La chambre et la maison était exactement comme decritent dans l'annonce. Des notre arrivée, Ryan nous a présenté les lieux et nous a tout de suite mis quelques bières au frais, et pas n'importe laquelle, de la bière artisanale du Wisconsin. Malheureusement nous n'avons pas pu la déguster avec eux, un rendez-vous nous empêchant de passer la soirée ensemble, seul regret du séjour mais indépendant de leurs qualités d'hôtes! Petit Pour résumer, l'hospitalité des gens du Wisconsin et du middle west n'est pas une légende, et l'ensemble était parfait!
I spent 2 weeks at Cory and Ryan place. I enjoyed comfortable bedroom, with private bathroom, in a quiet and peaceful neighbourhood. You can easily find all you may need (breakfast, bakery and grocery) with a short ride (Ryan lent me one of his bikes during my stay). Biking in Madison is really pleasant and secure, there're bike paths/lanes everywhere.
Cory and Ryan were great hosts.They were friendly and helpful, to make me feel like home. I loved it, I had really good time in Madison.
Cory and Ryan greeted me warmly when we met after my arrival. (They told me where to find a key so I could let myself in before they returned from a journey.) I enjoyed their fellowship very much. We had many interesting conversations. Ryan invited me to partake from his supply of beers in the fridge. Cory invited me to make my breakfasts with eggs laid by hens in Cory and Ryan's backyard chicken coup. Cory also allowed me to sample her delicious homemade zucchini bread. My accommodations and amenities were exactly as described and pictured. So was the neighborhood. I felt comfortable throughout my stay. Thank you for your pleasant hospitality, Cory and Ryan.
Cory and Ryan did a great job at welcoming me in, and I felt right at home. The place was just as pictured online. They even recommended me to some good local hotspots for food which was only a 10 minute walk away. I felt comfortable walking the neighborhood on my own. I had a peaceful morning drinking coffee on their deck. An overall great experience!
We had a great stay with Cory and Ryan. They were great hosts and the accommodations were perfect. The room is all one needs and the location is perfect in a quiet neighborhood but a very short drive to the Capitol area. We will definitely stay again if we are in the area and recommend it to anyone.
We're Ryan & Cory. Nice to meet you! We've lived in active, charming Madison, WI for about 5 years now. We opened up our home to guests about 2 years ago and it turned out to be one of the best decisions we've made.
Epic adventure seekers and outdoor lovers, in 2013 we trekked across Wyoming, sailed the San Juan islands, got married in Madison, overlooking the beautiful Lake Monona, and then we headed on a honeymoon adventure to Indonesia.
We just had a baby boy in Nov 2014, so we've been busy getting to know/raise him. He sleeps upstairs with us so rest assured that you won't be sleeping net to a baby room. :) We love to spend our free time outdoors, exercising or sitting out on our back deck, enjoying local brews and company. Cory's a vegetarian who loves to travel, meet new people and insists on biking anywhere within 20 miles. Ryan is a laid back Midwesterner who loves to fish, read, and take photographs.
Being hosts on airbnb has really been a joy. The whole experience has been so rewarding and insightful. We look forward to meeting YOU!
