About the Property

Apartment, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)

Here’s your chance to experience the cozy comfort of an airy, cottage-like apartment, with the convenience of a downtown location.

This quiet, sunny second-floor apartment allows you the peace and quiet you deserve. Imagine the respite you’ll feel when you sink into a dreamy bed with a top-of-the-line pillow top mattress. You’ll cherish the feeling of high-thread count 100% cotton sheets on you skin. And you’ll wash away your cares in a luxurious clawfoot tub with shower.

Appointed with care by the home’s owner – a former proprietor/chef of a heralded Door County inn – this apartment includes a fully equipped kitchen. You’ll also enjoy the convenience of a washer/drier in the basement, in-unit tv and free wireless. Start the day with French press coffee on your three season porch.

Venturing out, you’ll find a host of activities within walking distance. Nearby Tenney Park offers boat launches, fishing, pontoon rides and ice skating in the winter. And you’ll find many different award-winning restaurants and coffee shops. The world-famous Barrymore Theater offers national acts and the University of Wisconsin and Madison Area Technical College campuses are each 3 miles away. The area is served by a number of bus lines and taxis are easily accessible.

Take a look at the photos and you’ll see why there’s no reason a short-term stay in Madison can’t be a memorable one.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1998

Why the Owner Chose Emerson East, Madison, WI, USA:
The location has the dual advantage of being close to everything this fantastic city has to offer and yet is on a very quiet street and neighborhood.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
I love that the apartment is in such an old house and neighborhood. However, there are some quirks to the building. A few considerations : This is a second floor walk-up apartment in a 2 flat. The ceilings are slightly lower than average which means that the shower height could be a little cramped for very tall people as one steps up into the claw foot tub. Otherwise you will find that the apartment is exactly as pictured (except there is a newer TV than the one in the photo).
