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.

The Space

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. 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 dresser, a small fan for those who enjoy white noise, an iron and ironing board and a hamper.

Your personal bathroom is located right outside your bedroom door and it's stocked full of towels, shampoo, conditioner, soap and a hair dryer. Since we have a full bath upstairs, we won't be using yours at all.

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.

The living room, dining room and kitchen are all shared so feel free to make yourselves at home and feel free to put any of your food in the fridge. We have apple tv, basic cable and XBMC if you're interested in watching tv in the living room. (Briggs, our pug mix, will likely want to be by your side if you choose to do so. He loves a good show/movie)

We do like to note that we had a baby in Dec 2014 so guests aren't surprised when they arrive. He sleeps with us upstairs and is generally a great baby. We both have day jobs so we'll be gone during the week from 7:30-4pm, but our nanny, our son and another lil baby will be there during the day on M, T, W and F.

We offer breakfast items to those that are staying under two weeks, but we'd like our long term guests to purchase their own breakfast foods, with the exception to eggs. We have plenty of urban farm fresh eggs to go around!

If all that sounds OK, then we'd love to have you! Let us know if you have any questions for us!

Guest Access

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.

The Neighborhood

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 live in a straight, biracial, trans, family oriented and gay community and we're very proud of it. Everyone is welcome at our home and we encourage open mindedness and peace.

Getting Around

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.

Other Things to Note

I'm going to make a short list of what I think you should see/do while you're here. We're a 1 car family and I bike everywhere so everything I list will be bike/walk friendly.

1) Frank Lloyd Wright Monona Terrace-bike up to the terrace and walk to the rooftop. The view of Lake Monona is breathtaking.

2) Visit the capital. You can do a quick walk through to the Rotunda just to take in the view.

3) Bike down State St from the Capital. St Street is considered our shopping district and it has a lot of shops, restaurants, bars, theaters, and museums. It ends at the University square so you'll be able to see some of the college. From there you can bike (1.5 blocks) to the Union Terrace.

4) Union Terrace-Union Terrace is the University's best place for outdoor drinking/socializing. It's located right on Lake Mendota so the best time to go is right at sunset. They have some great microbrews on tap and you can order food as well. (get a brat, or two!) And don't forget to sit in the gigantic chair for a photo op!

5) Bike down to Picnic Point for the best view of Madison. It's a short 3 mile bike ride from the Union Terrace and it follows Lake Mendota the whole way.

6) Madison has some of the best restaurants in the US, seriously. We have the most diverse restaurants per capita in the US, so it all depends on what type of food you like. My fav locations are Old Fashioned, Graze, Marigolds, Sardine, Coopers Tavern, Weary Traveler, and Ha Long Bay.
