Property description

This cute cottage with a gourmet kitchen on a small quiet street is the owners' personal guest house. Everything is first class and charming at this gem of a place, from recently remodeled kitchen & bath, china and glassware, upscale furniture & furnishings , elegant bedrooms, upstairs and downstairs fireplaces, TVs (with cable, ESPN), fast internet, artwork, outdoor living, and landscaping. There is a beautiful outdoor patio (with Weber gas grill) and a Scandinavian sauna.

Children are entertained by a basketball hoop, a pack-n-play, additional TV and bedroom in the basement, video games, a beach and playground within a few blocks.

We are 3 miles from hospitals, 5 miles from campus & stadium, and 6 miles from the capitol & Monona Terrace convention center. Legal disclosure - this home is not a transient/tourist rooming house, and thus is not for the transient.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2011

About the owner: We love to travel and often stay in VRBO's ourselves. This is our personal guest house. My family lives very nearby, consisting of mom (me), dad, 3 elementary school children, and a 10-lb dog with a 'lion' haircut.

Why the Owner Chose Madison:
We have lived very nearby for over 10 years, and can't say enough good things about the location. As our family grew, we decided we needed a guest house, and so when this charming cottage came on the market we rushed at the chance to buy it.
