About Pete Hartman
Hello, our names are Peter and Sheri Hartman. We're proud to invite you to enjoy Prairie Hill's 25 acres of peaceful countryside while being within 15 minutes to 1 1/2 hours from many interesting destinations. Some of our favorite pass times at Prairie Hill: Taking a late night walk down to the pond and lying down on the dock to look at the stars while being serenaded by the crickets and frogs. Hearing the coyotes night song. Stroll along the wide trails through the woods and past the prairie's pine groves. Collecting fossils. Harvesting pumpkins from the garden. Cutting down our own Christmas trees. Enjoying a campfire by the pond (for whatever reason, we've seen very few mosquitoes during our 14 years here.) Enjoying a hot drink on the deck while the day wakes up and the fog is just leaving. Sitting in the great room with a roaring fire crackling and making the 13 foot ceiling glow while we watch a movie or play a game. Bird watching. Creating and enjoying a delicious meal together. Star gazing. Some of our plans/dreams for Prairie Hill: Build a workshop/barn/pottery studio (would be fun to offer classes to guests). Build a covered deck off the front of the house. Face the house with stone. Prairie restoration. Pete works as a principal in the Madison Metropolitan School District. Sheri is an art curriculum developer for Kid's Junction. They and their four children manage Prairie Hill.
Pete Hartman purchased this House in 1999

Much needed get away
We needed to give our college senior a break from her parents in our “downsized” home so we decided that this would be the perfect get away spot. And it was! Wish we could have stayed longer. Many peace walks through the prairie grasses. And we watched the sun set and the super moon rise every night. And the stars in the dark sky - hard to describe!
Perfect in Every Way
We absolutely love staying here. The hosts are incredible and were so patient with our annoying questions!! Beautiful house, serene property - kept us sane during the pandemic and we are grateful. We will return often and have even tacked on an extra week!!
Perfect House for a Girls Weekend
There were 7 of us who spent the weekend at this gorgeous home. Plenty of room for all, cozy fireplace, well stocked kitchen with everything you need. Beds and pillows were super comfy, lots of extra blankets. The adorable coffee bar was an added bonus! We were lucky to meet Sheri as she brought the garage door openers over. Spent time in New Glarus; such a cute little town. We ate at Kristi’s-highly recommend! Would love to come back for a summer stay! Don’t hesitate to rent this beauty!
Great place to relax
Wonderful, quiet retreat with all the amenities. A great place to get away. Owner knows how to make sure everything is in place for your stay. Great communicator. Hope to return someday.
Beautiful and Spacious
Perfect place for a girls weekend away. The house is big and plenty of places to relax. The kitchen was great to make champagne breakfasts and gourmet dinners. The road to get to the house is a little crazy and you can definitely miss it if you don’t know exactly what sign you are looking for so make sure to pay attention and go when it’s light out. Overall great experience!
