Enjoy this fully private 2 room plus bath in home suite/mother in law suite. We are only 2 blocks from the bus line which gets you to campus, downtown and EPIC in just minutes. UW football is ~1 mile stroll. It's not really a private room...its an entire private floor close minutes from everything awesome in Madison! My place is ideal for solo or business travelers, & couples.
This suite is a completely private floor in a split unit house. It is a 2 room: 1 bathroom, 1 lounge/dining room/kitchenette and 1 bathroom fully finished basement suite.
Room 1: The master bedroom contains a beauty rest mattress, high thread count Ralph Lauren Sheets, a comforter, and spare blankets in the trunk. Choose from a variety of pillows to sleep on (standard firm, memory foam with cervical bolsters, bamboo memory foam, down with cervical bolsters). There is an empty closet with hangers, a space heater and an umbrella. There is a small drawer set also. Maps (Dane county bike map, city bike map, and city road map) will help you find your way around town. Read about places to go and things to do in some of Madison's local magazines. Also included in the room are an alarm clock/radio, fan, and even a white noise machine (not that you will need it, but who doesn't like relaxing sounds after a long day).
Room 2: Contains a microwave, coffee pot, toaster, fridge with separate freezer, soda stream, some goodies (oatmeal/waffles, snacks, coffee, tea), 40" high definition Samsung TV, apple TV (with instructions in home manual-which provides music/iheart radio options, TV such as netflix or most major cable channels), dvd player and some exercise equipment (push up bars, dumbbells, resistance bands, medicine ball, cuff weights, physioball, jump rope).
Room 3: Private Bathroom: The bathroom cabinet can store your goods and is stocked with towels and extra TP. There is a standing shower stall which includes a wall mounted pump of shampoo, conditioner, and body wash. This is not only more green by eliminating the waste of those tiny plastic bottles, it also means, you get better quality bathing supplies. There is a medicine cabinet, hair dryer, iron, ironing board, some cleaning supplies just in case.
This fully private 2 room, 1 bath suite is ~3 miles from downtown. ~1 mile from Camp Randall Stadium and UW Campus. 0.5 miles from UW/ VA Hospitals and about a 15 minute drive from EPIC. The bus stop is a 2 block walk and can get you just about anywhere! The commuter bike path is 1/2 mile away and can get you downtown faster than driving.
The suite is completely private with it's own private entrance. The two units are separated by a locked (common) door. The entrance to the suite is the exterior of the house facing the driveway. We will give you information on guest access as it gets closer to your reservation or greet you upon arrival.
We try to meet our guests upon arrival. If we are unable to do so, we try to when we get home. There is a keypad to make check in easier for you. If you have questions just ask before or during your stay! Everyone's travel needs are different so if there's something you need, please ask before or during your stay. I can provide great recommendations for local attractions, restaurants, things to do and even scenic bike routes! Let me know what you will be doing in town, a little bit about yourself, fellow travelers when you request to book, or what would make your stay more enjoyable. It's fun to learn what brings people to Madison and the interests that they have for their time here.
The property owners are on site but will not be in your space. We are accessible to help or answer any questions but will respect your privacy. We are clean, quiet and respectful and expect the same in return.
If you have dog allergies or don't like dogs, this is probably not the best fit.
A goofy 65 pound rescued German Shorthair Pointer dog lives on the property. He will not be in your space but you might on occasion hear a bark, squeeks, or him romping through the house. He's a little skiddish at first but warms up quickly. He promises to keep you safe and sound during your stay.
I can be more flexible on check in/out time if there are not back to back bookings, so please ask if you need other times.
I also do take guest suggestions seriously. After the first year of hosting, I added brand new luxury bath towels, improved seating options (hopefully will have a hammock installed soon too!), revised directions to the apple tv, improved the curtains, bedding options depending on season/temperature, space heater or fan available upon request.

I am a healthcare professional who enjoys the great outdoors or just relaxing and enjoying the little things in life. I enjoy camping with my dog Marshall, just about anything outside including teaching skiing at the local ski hills.
My style of traveling is getting away from the rush of everyday life, enjoying the outdoors be it camping, skiing, or paddling on a lake somewhere. Though I do travel a bit for work and enjoy exploring the local communities of where it takes me.
