We are fairly new to Madison so are still exploring all the wonders it has to offer. I enjoy home remodeling, gardening, working for Habitat For Humanity Restore, biking, ice skating, and a good book.

We had a great time staying with Kate and Gordon. Their house is adorable with a cool artistic flair. They made the stay even more inviting with details like robes, coffee, and the most amazing peanut butter chocolate chip cookies. Try eat just one. I dare you. They helped fill me in on the different areas of Madison as I was there house hunting for the weekend. They were very flexible on check in/out times. Overall, a great place to spend a weekend!
Kate's guestroom is even prettier and more spacious than the photo.
Our bathroom was super cute -- and super clean! Their house, gardens and neighborhood are darling and it was a straight shot to the U of W campus that took about 10 minutes. They provide a parking space off the street, too.
Kate struck that wonderful balance between attentive and easy-going. She's a lovely host and we would stay with her again.
Lovely hosts who anticipated our every need as newcomers to the area. Impeccably clean accommodations with charm to match. And just really nice people with the sensitivity to know "where we were coming from" and "where we wanted to go". Add a super comfortable bed and an adjacent private bath, for a true boutique hotel experience!
Best place to stay hands down! Kate has a wonderful eye for art and that is expressed in her beautiful home. I would recommend Kate and Gordon's house to anyone.
The room looked exactly like the picture, really even better. It was clean very comfortable and quite. The hosts Kate and Gordon where a plus, both have wonderful and welcoming personalities. Kate and Gordon never made me feel like a stranger, gave great recommendations of places to eat, and had all kinds of little extras to make you feel at home. I would book with over and over again.
Kate and Gordon's beautiful home is the equivalent of a professionally run, high-end bed and breakfast inn with one room ;) They've thought of everything, from bathrobes, luggage rack, local tourist info and fresh flowers in the (very comfortable and private) bedroom to home-baked cookies on arrival. Their relaxing backyard provided a perfect respite after weeks of hard travel, and we enjoyed their company immensely. Highly recommended!
Kate's home is comfortable and attractive, and it's in a wonderful neighborhood. The room is very nice with an excellent bed. She and her husband are pleasant and friendly people. Highly recommended.
We so enjoyed our stay with Kate and Gordon. As I told Kate, it was like staying with relatives but so much nicer!! Both Kate and Gordon are friendly, interesting, generous, and welcoming people. We felt so at home and were incredibly impressed with their creativity, which you can see throughout the house and yard. We enjoyed having a very private room and bathroom in a home where we were the only guests (again, more like staying with close friends and not like staying at a hotel). The breakfast was healthy and bountiful (and adapted to our requests), and they let us help ourselves whenever we woke up. We most of all enjoyed the time they spent hanging out with us in their gorgeous back yard -- sharing beer, wine, and conversation while throwing a ball to their cute Jack Russell terrier. We will definitely go back (and would welcome them to visit us!). If you are considering staying with Kate and Gordon, you will find a very comfortable bed, an immaculately clean, comfortable, and interesting home, easy on-street parking, a quiet neighborhood, and a friendly couple who will gladly spend some time with you. We hope you will treat their home like your own home (or better) so they will keep welcoming guests.
We stayed with Kate and Gordon while in Madison for our son's commencement from UW. We could not have had a better experience. Our private room and bathroom were tastefully decorated and very comfortable. Kate and Gordon have created an atmosphere that is welcoming and relaxing, inside their home and in the garden; spaces that they encouraged us to enjoy. The bed was so comfortable that I feel we had our best nights sleep in months. And in the morning we so appreciated the offering of granola and fruit along with our coffee. The best cookie I think we have ever tasted was prepared for us as an anytime snack, a very nice treat. We really feel we found new friends in Kate and Gordon and really look forward to staying in their home again next year.
I am so delighted I stayed with Kate and Gordon in their lovely charming home. They are the kindest people, their home is comfortable and beautiful. Kate is an outstanding stylist/decorator, I was so happy to be in her pretty and cozy spaces. Their home is close to any place in Madison you want to go. Thank you Kate and Gordon for being outstanding hosts. I picked their home partly because it is in a neighborhood where I could easily park beside the house and I had my own bathroom. I received a lot more in meeting these sweet people I call friends now. Thank you Kate and Gordon for making my visit in Madison extra nice and very comfortable.
Kate seemed very personable
Kate and Gordon are a wonderful couple and I would love to stay with them if I was a guest! They are fun and very entertaining to talk with, many life stories to share. They have a loving relationship themselves and it is very inspiring. The house is beautifully decorated and in a safe and desirable neighborhood. Kate is possibly the most creative person I know and it is always fun taking a tour of the house to see all of her new projects. I have been friends with Kate and Gordon for over a year now and feel fortunate to have them in my life.
