Year Purchased: 1996
About the owner: With a unique vision to share the interesting history and beautiful architecture with the public, the owners began a full-scale restoration in 1996. Three years later the doors were open. Fifteen years and many wonderful guests later, Villa by the Stream continues to bring an elegant and special place to life for travelers from everywhere in the world. Karisa is an office manager at Cross Plains Dental. After several years of going to school and working at Kraft Foods, she decided to get out of the rat race, and this job is perfect for that! She graduated with a BS in Psychology from UW-Madison in 1999. When he’s not busy restoring the bed and breakfast, David works for the Wisconsin Historical Society. He graduated with a Communications degree from UW-Madison in 1989. Their children are Kaia, age 24, Zane, age 22, and Colt, age 20. Over the years they have restored the carriage house and converted it into their personal residence. It was built in 1909 and was converted into an art studio in the early 1980’s. Cathedral ceilings and oak beams blended with the rustic decor make their home a real contrast to the Victorian splendor of the main house.
Why the Owner Chose Mazomanie, WI, USA:
Our guest amenities are designed around making your stay at our Wisconsin getaway a relaxing and satisfying experience. Indulge in a little luxury during your Wisconsin vacation, honeymoon, or business trip. Villa by the Stream is ideally located in southern Wisconsin just minutes away from popular area attractions such as Taliesin, House on the Rock, American Players Theater, and Wisconsin’s State Capital, Madison. Crack the yellowed pages of a Victorian novel or stroll along the trout stream, just yards from the porch. Everything is there for your comfort!
The Unique Benefits at this House:
The history of our property is found throughout the community. The year was 1865; the nation was mourning the loss of President Abraham Lincoln, an eighteen-year-old boy named Thomas Edison was launching his career, and an enterprising barrel cooper from Milwaukee named William Thompson journeyed to Mazomanie and began building this stately home. Financed by his success with the Mazomanie Flour Mill, Thompson constructed an impressive Italianate home complete with an ornate wraparound verandah, eight-sided porch columns and scrolled brackets, second-story balcony, and widow’s walk cupola. To impress business associates and peers, Thompson installed a beautiful curving staircase in the foyer, southern yellow pine floors in the parlor, and plenty of ornamental plasterwork. Our town’s name, Mazomanie, comes from Chief Mazomani, a leader of the Sioux of Minnesota. His name translates to “The Iron That Walks,” or “Walking Iron.” Edward Brodhead, a superintendent of the railroad during the 1850’s, named our town, probably after a suggestion from Hercules Dousman (Wisconsin’s first millionaire). Mazomani was described as a firm friend of the whites. He was wounded on September 23, 1862, in a battle between a band of Indians led by Little Crow, a Sioux chief, and the U.S. Army near Yellow Medicine River, Minnesota. Mazomani had sought a flag of truce, but was shot while running toward the Army’s lines. He died several days later. One hundred and thirty-one years later, David and Karisa Friske became the new owners, and the monumental task of restoring the home to its original grandeur became their goal.
