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 Spring Harbor, Madison, WI, USA:
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.
