  • Excellent stay for multiple families

    "We had a very nice time at Otto’s condo, which was perfect for our three families (six adults, three children 4 to 8 years old) in town for a wedding. We enjoyed getting to cook and share meals with each other. The condo is convenient to downtown Madison, about 20-25 minutes’ drive, and it has lots of space, with two common rooms, garage and street parking. Unfortunately it was too cold for us to use the deck, but that looked very nice too. Wish we could have tried the trail, but it was also too cold for that. It’s hard to tell from the photos, but this is really almost a stand-alone house that shares just one wall with a next-door neighbor (I thought it would be more like an apartment). It’s extremely quiet and peaceful. The beds were comfortable and there were plenty of linens. Otto left very clear instructions and checked in with us by email while we were there, to make sure we had everything we needed. The condo is very well maintained, clean, organized, and with all the supplies we could have wanted. We would definitely recommend it to others. Thank you, Otto!"

  • Needed to be close to the hospital

    "My father had under gone a very serious operation at UW Madison Medical Center the day before Thanksgiving. Everyone of my family members wanted to be with him during his hospital stay but we knew it would be very costly to get hotel rooms. We found this amazing home on VRBO which was only a few miles from the hospital and really centrally located to everything we needed. I have so much to say about it. First, the owners of this home are wonderful to work with. They were so accommodating to us! It was a holiday week and they were out of town, but they still were available to us. We had a total of nine family members staying in the home. When we arrived, we found this adorable brick home with fresh snow all over the trees in the front. It looked like a home we see in holiday hallmark movies. It was so warm and comfortable. They neighborhood is very nice and safe. It is really close to the lake where we walked around every day for exercise. We all had plenty of sleeping space, even with adding two air mattresses in the basement family room. We had no issues with running out of hot water in the two bathrooms. The house was extremely clean with ample bedding, pillows, towels, toiletries, etc. The kitchen table was large enough to fit all nine around for our Thanksgiving meal which was catered in from this fantastic grocery store right down the street. Our reservation was from the 25th thru the 30th. However, we needed to stay an additional week as my father did not get out of the hospital as early as we were hoping. The home was available for the week so we extended our stay. My Mother who is 86 has not stopped talking about how comfortable she was there and how thankful she is that we found this VRBO. I highly recommend this home for your next stay!"

  • Stayed Oct 3 and Oct 4, 2014

    "Sorry it has been a while to get on this site... but here is my review of this resort... IT WAS OUTSTANDING... can't wait to go back. The resort owner was a down to earth and personable on site owner.... very eager to help out and was available day or night... The view from the big house was pretty decent but it is a long down hill walk to the water (yep... you have to walk up hill on the way back)... but don't worry about that... there are cabins right on the water if you want them. The cabins are close to each other but they are far enough away to give you the feeling of privacy.. The owner told me he has had clients that have come back, year after year for the past twenty years... and meeting him and staying at the resort......... not only do I believe him... I plan on being one of those clients. Stay overnight there (if you can get in).. you will want to go back. Cabin #4 ("The big house") is at street level but has an upstairs... the "Street level" has a bedroom and two bathrooms on that level, as well as the kitchen, dining room, living room, deck and screened in porch (that you can see the lake from). If you have a physical disability/heart condition or other ailment, this would be the house for you to check out on the website. It is close to Halverson's restaurant and other amenities....."

  • Pre-wedding Week

    "This is the second time I have stayed in this rental. It is a lovely house with wonderful hosts. We were in the Madison area for my daughter's wedding and needed a place to cook, rest and work on wedding projects. The large dining room table allowed us plenty of room to make and assemble crafts for the wedding. Since the weather was unusually warm, we were able to practice Yoga on the deck in the early morning with the beautiful sunrise in the East and then walk on the path through the marshlands. Joan brought us fresh farm eggs and also several of her personal kitchen appliances to help us make the exact food we were planning. At one point, we misplaced our keys and had to call Joan late in the evening for help. She and her husband could not have been more friendly or helpful! They came out into the night and got us a key and made sure we were settled and secure. The house is very inviting, clean and well stocked with personal essentials as well as spices and basic supplies. It was so nice to be "in the country", yet so very close to everything in Madison. I look forward to the next opportunity I have to rent this property....and to see our lovely hosts again."
