Why Richard Wm. King chose Cottage Grove

It is a beautiful home nestled in two acres of woods and overlooking a pond and wetland. It is very convenient to most Madison activities, yet away from it all.

What makes this house unique

This is a large well-appointed home with an open floor plan(kitchen, living room, family room and dining room around a large 2-sided limestone fireplace). Secluded. Large yard.

Spectacular views.

I stayed at this house for a weekend either a group of 11 of my friends for a bachelor party. This house exceeded our expectations and more! There were enough beds for the majority of us, 3 or 4 bathrooms, a large kitchen that was well-stocked with utensils and everything else you would need to cook large meals, and a big gas grill in the garage which was amazing because we grilled most of our food. Richard the host was great as he laid out the directions on how to get to the cottage and how to use the smalls things like the coded lock on the front door. I would definitely recommend this cottage to any large groups in the future for any sort of events!

Great for a large group!

  • 5 of 5

This house was great for our group of friends over the New Years weekend. The gathering space was large enough that we could all be together and the double-sided fireplace was great to have when the weather was so cold! The kitchen was well equipped and the house has everything you might need. Richard was very responsive and provided lots of helpful information upfront. Would definitely rent this home again!

Family Christmas

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our time at the house. Beautiful location and the house has so many amenities. We took full advantage of the fire place and the ready store of wood provided. Plenty of dishes and space for our group of 15. The house was very clean and had very nice furnishings. The landlord was on top of things when we had a little bit of snow and was readily available to answer questions as we got in. The nicest surprise was a decorated Christmas tree! I would definitely recommend and stay here again.

Wonderful home to share our holiday with family and friends!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely enjoyed our annual friends and family holiday in this fantastic home! There were plenty of beds (very comfortable) for all and then some. Plenty of parking and we appreciated the use of the garage too. The place is very spacious and welcoming. We were able to have multiple board games going on throughout the house with all of the tabletops and chairs. The kitchen had plenty of needed items to make our turkey dinner. There were four bathrooms, which was helpful for our large group, and the owners were thoughtful enough to have a basket of soaps in case we forgot our own for showering (which I did). Plenty of towels and cloths as well. The tub was great for bathing our child and we noticed a baby bathtub in the cabinet if she had been much smaller as well (how sweet!). One couple had a dog and after notifying the owners of this fact, I noticed they had put out bowls for food and water. So sweet! Overall, we thought the home was fantastic and plan to stay there again in the future! Thank you!

Beautiful home -- but with some maintenance issues

  • 4 of 5

Our three generation family of ten (with two dogs) spent Thanksgiving in this home. The house offers plenty of space, is beautifully furnished, and has great, comfortable beds in all the bedrooms. The kitchen was well equipped, and we had no problem cooking a traditional Thanksgiving dinner. There was even plenty of wood for the fireplace. The location is lovely, and we especially enjoyed the light streaming in the kitchen windows every morning as the sun rose over the wetlands. There was even a wild turkey on Thanksgiving morning!

Renters should be aware that there are lots of steps in this house: 7-8 steps to either the upper or lower sleeping areas; two steps (with no railings) down into the living room; two steps to the main floor half bath. That is not a problem for most people, but it was challenging for the elders in our group and should be considered for anyone with mobility issues.

We were concerned about the routine maintenance in this house. We had no heat (only the fireplace) for 18 hours until a technician arrived; the sewer pipes were clogged causing water to back up from the floor drain onto the basement floor when people used showers; the fittings on a toilet tank were loose causing water to leak onto the floor of the master bath; the soap dispenser in the dishwasher is broken. While any one of these issues can unexpectedly afflict any homeowner, the fact that there were several makes us hope that the owner will pay closer attention to maintenance in the future so that renters can enjoy the beautiful space without worries.
