Sonja and Jim were friendly and wonderful hosts. Very accommodating to our needs. The guest house is adorable and the king size better is very comfortable with nice linens. The cottage is in a super location on the lake, yet the capitol area is just a short walk away. We couldn't have had a nicer stay, and we will definitely be back when visiting our son who lives just a few blocks away.
We recently celebrated my daughter Lila's 25th birthday at Sonja and Jim's amazingly beautiful home in Madison. We stayed in the upstairs floor. The two bedroom area had many great amenities. Comfortable living room area with day bed and soft, comfy couches. Upscale kitchen and bathroom with balcony overlooking Lake Mendota and beautiful gardens. Everything romantic .tidy and homey all rolled into one living space. Light filled bedroom overlooking lake as well . We loved it and felt lucky to be there through out the trip.
Great location to town as well. We had a killer good time and highly recommend this downtown Victorian!! Thanks Sonja and Jim for all the beauty and care you have put into this home. It was much appreciated!! Great hosts!
Sonja and Jim's home is a lovely place to stay in the great town of Madison. Our family of four (kids 7 and 9) had plenty of space to spread out in this perfectly-appointed third-floor accommodation. Sonja has a tasteful eye for simple design and decorating while creating a comfortable and cozy spot for a vacation. The view of the lake is quintessential Madison. Don't miss going down to the dock and sitting out on the lake for a morning cup of coffee! This space is perfectly located to walk to all the hot spots of downtown Madison, including easy access to the UW. Sonja and Jim were very sweet to tour our kids through the garden and to meet Fifi the dog at next door's Livingston property. They were knowledgable hosts of all that Madison has to offer to be sure we enjoyed the city. We couldn't have wished for a more perfect vacation. Thank you Sonja and Jim! We hope to be back in the years to come.
Sonja and the stay were terrific. I live in Madison (two blocks away from here) and had my parents stay here when they came up from Chicago. They loved it!
A clean, comfortable, well-decorated room, with a view of the lake. We walked to the Capitol for the Farmer's Market. Couldn't ask for a better spot, or host.
This was my first Airbnb experience, and it was everything (and more) than I could have hoped for! Sonja welcomed my guest and I with an honest warmth and laid back charm that made us feel right at home. We stayed in the spacious top floor of the home, and it was more than enough space for two. It's also in a great location; easy enough to walk to the Capitol Square area, and even over to the opposite side of the isthmus. If I find myself in Madison again, this will certainly be the first place I try to book.
Sonja and Jim were fantastic hosts. The house is beautiful, and in a lovely historic neighborhood. The top floor apartment has very high ceilings and lots of windows. I would definitely stay there again.
Sonja and Jim were wonderful hosts. The room (with private entrance) was clean, comfortable, and welcoming. The location was beautiful and easily accessible to downtown where my conference was being held. I really enjoyed my walk along the lake every evening at the end of my day. I can't say enough good things about my experience. Sonja went above and beyond, leaving me flowers from her garden and driving me to the airport (for a very early flight!) at the end of my stay. Sonja and Jim have other listings on airbnb and I would highly recommend staying with them during your travels.
Sonja and Jim have a wonderful room for rent on the back of their yard. It is right on the lake and very comfortable. We got in late the first night but got some great restaurant recommendations from them and finally met them the next day. Both are very friendly and welcoming and were immediately like old friends. We will definitely stay with them again the next time we are in Madison!
Our girlfriends weekend at Sonja's home was perfect in every way. The accommodations are lovely and very clean. The space is tastefully decorated, with two very comfy beds and plenty of room for sleeping on a large L-shaped couch or (website hidden) works well, as does a ceiling fan, so the space stayed pleasantly cool despite warm temps outside. The view of the lake is wonderful, and access to the lake and a dock for sitting, relaxing, and talking is a bonus! Within a comfortable walking distance to all things downtown Madison. Sonja was an attentive, but not too present hostess, and even offered to come give us a ride home - if needed - when we hit Madtown on Sat. evening! The rental space is on the third floor, so climbing stairs is involved.
The guest house was fantastic and in a great neighborhood. The space was very clean and very accessible to downtown Madison! Sonja was so helpful in making time in Madison a great stay! She is so kind and provided such a great experience, I would love to go back soon!
Sonja was a great guest and I would welcome her back anytime!
Sonja & Jim ... what a wonderful couple!
They own the most beautiful AirBnB apartment and guestroom in Madison , Wisconsin at a lake. And they start a AIRBNB in Seattle soon. We love to enjoy those places in the future . They were so charming and sweet, and they were delightful guests as well. We feel honored and blessed to have had them stay in our B&B home, and we're so grateful to have met them. Anyone would feel the same, I am sure! It was wonderful to share our
Air BnB experiences.
We wish them great AirBnB guests and good luck for their future plans .
