About Lindsey Jacobson

My husband and I purchased this home in 1982. We raised our children here along with horses, pet sheep, goat, chickens, dogs and cats and birds. We chose to open up HORSEFEATHER CREEK to others because it holds a special place in our hearts. It has so much to offer that we wanted to share it with our guests.

Why Lindsey Jacobson chose South Central

We have lived in this area all of our adult lives. We found this house and fell in love with it. We also wanted to raise our children in a country setting with lots of animals.

What makes this chateau / country house unique

Scenic country setting with wide open spaces yet having the convenience of being close to a big city and all that has to offer. This is a beautiful, comfortable and secluded home.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This is the 2nd time I've booked this property, and it was perfect again! We had a lot of family coming into town for our daughter's wedding, and Hosefeather Creek was ideal for a family reunion. Everything was very comfortable and clean. The property is gorgeous! The owner, Lin, is exceptionally accommodating and is very easy to work with. She knows the Madison area very well and had some awesome recommendations for dining and activities. It is just a couple of miles from I-94 and I-90, with easy access to all of Southern Wisconsin. The kitchens are well appointed. The kids (and one set of parents) were up one morning until 2:30 playing flashlight tag in the wooded area near the house. The sandy beach is a great place to relax, too. Everyone loved the hot tub.

11 guys go to a different college football game every year for 3 nights and this was our 10th anniversary. Madison, Wisconsin, and Horsefeathers were great. We rent a house every year and finding a place that sleeps 11 in Madison is not easy. The place was large, great setting in a great location, and fantastic for us. This is is the first year they advertised 11 beds and everyone had their own with many bathrooms. It was secluded and close to Madison and the airport. Lin was very helpful on all details yet left us alone.

It was very easy for the boys 30-35 to get back and forth from town on UBER.

We all agreed it was great and fantastic for a football weekend or large parties.

Met everyone's needs

  • 4 of 5

The feedback received has been largely positive. Here are the comments:

1) Property was comfortable and very clean

2) Being able to walk over and see the horses, donkey, goat and sheep was enjoyable

3) Good lighting at bedside and around house

4) Nice fireplace

What could make it better: Coffee and Tea available. Fruit basket and muffins just for the first day especially would be nice for those arriving late at night. The furnishings and décor were quite outdated, but nobody seemed to really mind. Just thought they would provide that feedback.

The perfect location for our family reunion!

  • 5 of 5

Horsefeather creek was a great find for our family reunion. We had 20 people staying (ranging in age from 4 to 74) and there was plenty of space for everyone to sleep comfortably. During the day, we never felt like we were on top of each other. The kitchen was extremely well stocked and had everything we needed to prepare meals for the entire group. There was plenty of seating for everyone although not all in the same room. There was a large dining room and breakfast nook to eat in as well as tables on the back patio. The grounds were beautiful and the kids had a great time exploring and playing outside and even swimming in the pond. The property was quiet and secluded yet only a short drive from all Madison has to offer. Any time we needed anything, Lindsey was extremely responsive and a pleasure to work with. There were plenty of linens for our entire party (towels, sheets, blankets, etc). I highly recommend Horsefeather Creek to any large group looking for a wonderful place to stay. We will definitely keep it in mind for our next family reunion.

Wonderful family weekend!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great family reunion/Celebration of Life long weekend at Horsefeather Creek! It was wonderful to have the whole family (19 people) under one roof and our needs were certainly met by the property. Very well maintained and so many thoughtful details and items provided by Lindsey. There was nothing we were lacking. Nice feeling of privacy, but stores were convenient too. We'd love to make a return trip to Horsefeather Creek!

The property is beautiful and quiet; a perfect spot for a family reunion.

  • 5 of 5

My family of 17 celebrated my 75th birthday, along with a family reunion there this July. It was a great location for us. The house was very well maintained and the kitchen was extremely well stocked with everything you could need. The property is very quiet and serene which makes for a restful vacation, yet you can find outside activities within 15 to 20 minutes. I would highly recommend this property to anyone who is looking for a spot for a large family vacation or just a group of friends to get together and enjoy each other's company.
