Nina and Craig have done a great job in making their Chalet a welcoming, warm environment. My room had everything I needed and was bright and comfortable for my two night stay. We shared good conversation, compared notes as working artists and even managed to squeeze in a valuable rummage sale. They were very respectful of my space and generously provide access to their nature preserve out back, what a perk. All in all a unique destination and within a quick drive to Madison. Check it out.
The house and surrounding area was just as advertised; beautiful and charming and unique. Nina and Craig were not able to be there when we arrived, but communication with them was easy and clear, and they gave great instructions. The house is darling and immaculate -- I'm somewhat allergic to cats and had no problems staying there. We had a lovely evening wandering the yard, making dinner, soaking in the tub... and then a great breakfast with Nina and Craig in the morning. We would definitely stay here again if life takes us to Madison.
A beautiful house with an amazing garden and wonderful hosts. Nina and Craig helped make our stay in Madison so relaxing and enjoyable. The room was immaculate, the bathroom with heated tiles was such a treat, and they were wonderful company. Their recommended Nepalese brunch in town was delicious. We had a very good experience overall, and really enjoyed meeting Nina and Craig!
We really enjoyed our stay and appreciated the tasteful decor. Nina and Craig have thought of everything, even a craft of water and drinking glasses.. Nice touch!
The room was very clean and the bathroom was awesome; newly renovated and well done.
They shared french press coffee and good conversation with us in the morning and even made a great recommendation for breakfast.
We would definitely recommend them as hosts and plan to stay there on annual trips to the area.
Oh, yes.. Their cats are adorable and very loving, too.
So much more than a place to stay, Nina and Craig provide their visitors with a rare glimpse into the creative home of 2 extraordinarily talented visual artists. Each room in their chalet holds a professionally displayed collection of carefully edited collectibles and top notch artwork, much of it Nina's. You could spend an hour mulling over the contents of the vignette in the guest room's bookcase alone!
The recently renovated gardens are filled with thoughtful and inventive ideas, and offer another whole series of whimsical outdoor rooms to discover.
The guest room itself is thoroughly charming and well appointed with vintage finds, fine linens and a most comfortable bed - which after all, is the one thing we were hoping to find! You could say that our expectations were wildly exceeded.
The evening cocktail hour on the back deck is a lovely alternative to morning breakfast and a great opportunity to visit with your delightfully accommodating hosts, who by the way gave us excellent guidance on local dining and breakfast options.
We thoroughly enjoyed Nina and Craig's warm hospitality and hope to return for another visit next year. If you have the opportunity to stay with them, do! You will not be disappointed.
Nina and Craig are gracious and considerate hosts. The "chalet" is a perfect place to stay, and Lake Mills is a sweet town with lots of spectacular biking options. Their home is filled with stunning artwork, much of it created by them, and the gardens are exquisite. Lake Mills is just a few minutes away from Madison and this airbnb is worth the trip!
