We love the Madison area and all that it offers! We are native to California and decided to move here part time when our kids and grand kids moved nearby. We were not use to having seasons and the mid-west has been something to get use to. All the seasons are wonderful (except winter) from spring bloom to the amazing colors of fall. We love hosting our guests and try to give each and everyone of them a great place to stay.
Why Owner chose Madison
This home is a classic Shotgun house that has been totally redone. You will experience the mid 1800's architecture with a mix of modern comfort and decor. We are located in the downtown historic district where you can walk to most restaurants and shops. One block to main street and three blocks to the riverfront. We are pet friendly on a case by case basis (we try to except the whole family), and have a fenced backyard for Fido.
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date.
Nicely decorated--easy to find--Musty odor wasn't welcoming
First impression wasn't good--it smelled very musty. Same on other days when we entered front door.
Listing states 2 baths, there is only one.
Convenient to Madison attractions, nicely decorated. The backyard with the fire pit and patio set were a surprise! 2nd bedroom was so narrow that getting into the bed was a challenge. Nice small sunroom on back of house.
I was surprised at the "rules", (we had to strip beds, reset thermostat, take out trash--maybe these are standard for HomeAway rentals, not sure.
Add-on fees for Owner Fee and Service Fee were unexpected. Those should be built in to price per night so it should have been listed as $163 per night plus tax. Full disclosure.) Kitchen was well equipped and it was nice to have cooking privileges.
I would ask MANY more questions before booking with HomeAway again. Didn't realize I needed to on this one.
We enjoyed our stay. The place was well stocked and very clean and comfortable. We loved the suggestions you made for the area.
Great place to stay
Clean. Inviting. Quiet. We WILL be back!!
Thank you very much for staying with us. Hope to see you soon.
