Hi there, I'm embarking on a new venture in my life -- innkeeping! My husband and I purchased a prairie style mansion on lake Mendota in downtown Madison. I love architecture and I am both thrilled and humbled to own this stunning home. The house was built in the prairie school style made famous by architects Louis Sullivan and Frank Lloyd Wright. My passion is gardening and I have about 1/3 acre right on the lake to keep me occupied. I love the idea of AirBnB because it embodies what I like best about travel -- staying someplace that is homey and comfortable -- the exact opposite of most hotels. You also have the added benefit of built in tour guides. Bob and I have lived in Madison for more than 30 years and we have a lot of information to share.
