I live on the eclectic East side of Madison Wisconsin. My house in over 100 years old and is one of the original homesteads in the area (back in the day). This house is a 2 story house with 3 bedrooms, full bathroom upstairs and 1 bathroom with shower downstairs. Full kitchen and living room, fenced in back yard (dog friendly) with a fire pit for those who enjoy an evening campfire. The propery comes with an attached 3 seasons porch with a bar if one wishes to sit inside and chill. I live 2 2 blocks from the Madison bike path that will take you everywhere around Dane County. This bike friendly community offers a great opportunity to tour all of the local breweries throughout Dane and surrounding area. Please come and experience Madison, the State Capital, awesome State Street (which is a must visit if you have never!), Willy Street ( another must visit for an awesome cultural experience) and SO SO much more. Saturdayâs farmers market around the State Capital is definately a stop in the morning to get a coffee in one of the local coffee shops and walk around and experience all of the local vendors offering organic foods! Madison, A great place to be.
My fiancée, our dog and I had a great stay at Kate’s place. The backyard is perfect for a pup and lots of places to hang out (particularly loved the covered Areas when it rained). Kate clearly takes great care to make guests feel welcome and happy at her place. Nice neighborhood, walking distance to a few breweries. Only small thing to note would be that there’s a slight spiral at the top of the staircase, not an issue for us but just to note if you have elderly guests or dogs!
The house was perfect for our one night stay in Madison. We enjoyed the fire pit and patio. Comfy beds. A nice cozy place to stay.
The house is charming, organized, and super clean. The backyard is pleasant. We liked being in a quiet neighborhood a short walk (20 min) to the park next to the lake. Kate was very communicative and hospitable. We would definitely stay there again.
We enjoyed our short stay and wish we would of had more daylight to hang out in the backyard area. Older home is well cared for and offers guests a comfortable place to stay. The only negative was no bathroom on the main level and over friendly neighbor.
Stayed for a weekend and everything went smoothly. Communication and check-in were easy. We loved the backyard and took advantage of it each night, relaxing by a small fire.
Staying at Kate’s was a wonderful experience. My friend and I road tripped to town with our two dogs to see our families. We wanted to limit their exposure to us given the pandemic, so we decided not to stay with family and booked at Kate’s. It truly felt like we had our own home while in town. Kate is an excellent host and her hospitality was refreshing. She went above and beyond with cleaning and sterilizing to keep everyone safe. The house itself is beautiful and had everything we needed. Everything was clearly labeled with instructions, which made it easy to navigate and made the check in and out process simple. The yard is stunning. On top of that, it had a lot of things we miss about Wisconsin. We plan to stay here again in the future and have already recommended to friends! The *only* heads up (and this is true in most older homes) is that the staircase can be pretty steep for people who have difficulty. We were fine, but grandma needed help going up and down when she had to go to the bathroom.
Kate has outstanding communication and went above and beyond in helping us feel comfortable. The whole house was clean and well cared for. We look forward to staying again!
We enjoyed our stay at this house. The location was convenient to get anywhere in Madison. The owner was nice and very responsive.
We came into town for a Badger football game and couldn't have been happier with our home base. Great attention to detail and nice added touches made you feel quite welcome. Would stay again - especially in warmer months to enjoy the yard too!
Cozy, clean, well-equipped for our party of 5
Our stay in Madison at Kate's house was wonderful! The house was very comfortable and really close to downtown Madison. Kate (and her parents as well) are pros at welcoming guests and making sure everything goes well during your stay. We also loved the homemade cookies & treats left for us by Kate's mom!
Cute place, great location, perfect fenced in back yard for the pups!!
Wonderful house and location. Plenty big for our party of five. Kate takes great pride in making the place inviting and comfortable, and it really shows. If I had dates for next year I'd go ahead and reserve again. Highly recommended!
We were in Madison for our daughter's wedding. Kate's place was centrally located and a perfect jumping off location for our destinations within the city. Super close to the Capital, where the wedding took place. The beds were really comfortable - a major plus when you need a good night's sleep. A fenced in backyard for the dogs - a great benefit allowing them to get the exercise they need while you attend to what needs to be done. Kate is awesome. Always quick to return communication. Always upbeat in every conversation. You won't be unhappy staying at her place!
Perfect home base for visiting Madison. Beautiful backyard patio. Everything you could possibly need! Highly recommend!
Very nice place with everything we needed for a group of 6. Kate was a great host who was flexible with our schedule and let us know everything about the place as soon as we arrived.
First the house. Very clean and it had everything you needed including a BBQ and nice patio out back. Lots of towels , beds were good and the air conditioning was definitely used on those hot summer days. This is a very old house that has been well looked after, bathrooms are either upstairs or downstairs which was not an issue for us. The host Kate arrived on time and gave us the most thorough walk through and best welcome we have ever had (and we have used rentals all over the world). She explained where everything was and made us feel welcome in her home. She left us (actually credit goes to her Mom) homemade cookies and brownies and even restocked the jar part way through our week stay. They were delicious, thank you Kate’s Mom! Great communication with Kate, we had shortened our stay by a day several months prior with no problem. I thought the change fee applied by VRBO was excessive and though Kate was not responsible for this fee she felt bad and when we got there had a gift certificate to a local pub. Thank you for going above and beyond Kate we enjoyed our Friday night fish fry there. Quiet old neighbourhood, very easy to get out onto the freeway or to downtown Madison. Large trees around the house and evening walks in the neighbourhood were cool and relaxing. Loved our stay here. Thanks Kate.
Kate was a wonderful host - she even had home-made cookies & brownies! The house was clean, cooled down in the summer heat (great A/C!), and she showed us around the house to make sure we were set and comfy. This was one of my best stays ever! Thanks for the beautiful mini-vacation, Kate!
Kate’s house was really great. My friends and I came to go to a local fair outside Madison. It slept 3 couples easily and comfortably and it was a perfect house for people traveling with a dog. Big back yard for the dog to play, and very dog friendly house all together. Kate was an attentive host but also left us to ourselves once we got settled. I would return in a second!
We stayed the 4th of July weekend for a family reunion and the home was clean and roomy. All appliances and AC were in good working order so we were able to help with reunion cooking. Our dog enjoyed the fenced in backyard. Kate was the best host ever! She met us on arrival and gave a quick tour of the property and went over the house rules. Her mom made cookies and bars for us and made us feel very welcome.
Great house for 6 of us at a Madison wedding.
We enjoyed our stay very much. Kate’s home was very clean and comfortable, in a lovely quiet neighborhood, close and convenient to what ever you may need. Also, Kate was extremely accommodating and kind. Highly recommend!
Kate went above and beyond to make our stay comfortable and smooth. Nice place to stay in Madison.
Darling house with great yard for the dog. It is close to the University. It is very well appointed. Wish we had planned to stay longer.
Kate was amazing,!!!! A home away from home!!! We’ll be back soon!
Welcoming and had everything we needed!
Kate was a great host. Flexible with check in times and left lovely homemade cookies as a welcome! Our dog loved playing ball in the enclosed backyard while we enjoyed coffee or a drink. The house had just about everything you could need to make meals and a bathroom on the same level as the bedrooms was handy.
The perfect spot for our family to stay while attending our daughter’s graduation. Kate was a thoughtful host with a charming home.
Kate was very accommodating and even supplied us with some local beers to try since we were in town trying the local breweries! Definitely would stay again when we come back to Madison!
Great time at a comfortable dog-friendly home. Kate made sure we had everything we needed, including some home made cookies to make us feel welcome. Well-equipped kitchen allowed us to enjoy family meals at home. We will be back!
We enjoyed staying here. Very welcoming home. Kate was great! And we loved that she had made so much of her furniture. Beautiful work!
Kate has a wonderful home, and was very accommodating. She stuck around until we came in (which was late), so should could answer any questions and assist us in any way. If we come back to Madison we would definitely stay here again.
Convenient location, and comfy beds. Kate's home is lovely. Would definitely stay again!
We enjoyed our stay at this property. Very comfortable and had everything we needed. Kate is very nice and accommodating.
We love our stay here and highly recommend this property! It was a very quintessential Wisconsin farmhouse in a great location. We also love our host Kate, as she was very warm, friendly and easy to communicate with.We frequent Madison several times a year (and my wife went to college here) and we were still able to get great restaurant recommendations. We had 6 adults staying for a snowboarding trip. Between the 6 of us and our snowboarding gears that we had to put together (install bindings), the house is large enough, and very accommodating.
This home is well cared for and gave us a true home away from home! We appreciated the personal touches and cannot express enough how comfortable this home is
House is comfortable and welcoming. Kate is a most accommodating host. Great venue for a small family get-together. Beds were very comfy.
We had a family get together and we loved this place! Kate was wonderful and was there to give us the full tour! Dog friendly was a bonus! Cookies on the counter and dog treats available too! Home away from home! Thank you Kate!
We would definitely stay there again!!! The house had everything you could need, very dog friendly, and a super value. Kate was very welcoming 🙂
We just needed a place to sleep, but host was prepared with all sorts of amenities.
We had an awesome time staying at this house in Madison. We were there for a quick stay with our pup and it was perfect for us. The fenced in yard was great for the dog and the house was super clean and comfortable. Kate was a great host and personally met us at the house when we arrived. Would stay here again if we make it back to Madison!
Some family and I stayed here for a weekend and it couldn't have been better. Kate has this house set up with guests' needs considered at every turn. If i could give her 6 stars I would!
Kate meets you with a smile and lots of information to add to your visit. We found Fresh flowers in the bedrooms, bakery treats in the kitchen and lots of Bucky Badger Love around❤️ Comfortable queen beds in all bedrooms. Excellent value for a clean and comfortable stay. We will definitely stay in this comfortable farmhouse again 👌😎❤️
Good location and easy to get to. Pet friendly yard was a plus and owner was very nice and helpful. Provided lots of info on the area and even provided us with baked treats!
Kate was a great host and the house is exactly as described - close to the bike path, big backyard, and lots of character. Thanks for a great stay!
Kate is a wonderful hostess and her place is very clean and matches the description. She is very accommodating, we appreciated the fact that she gave us access to her place , couple of hours before scheduled check-in. We visited Madison with our adults sons, we all enjoyed her hospitality. Kate is responsive, detail-oriented , and ensured that we had a comfortable stay at her place
Very clean home, great attention to detail, host goes above and beyond... Home is located in a great spot in Madison - many restaurants/bars/pubs in close proximity. Thanks for making me feel welcome, Kate!
We loved our stay at Kate's house. It was such a comfortable spot to enjoy Madison. We were visiting our son before the start of his senior year and this spot gave us a great place to just hang out on a rather rainy weekend. We even used the backyard grill to create a feast from our bounty from the Madison Farmers Market.
Incredibly clean home with very thoughtful host. Kate has thought of everything anyone might need and has it ready. She is very helpful with information and suggestions. The location of the house is close to the bike paths and you can easily bike to nearby spots to eat. We are 65 and 75 years old and the steps up to the bedrooms were not an issue for us. I’d stay here again
Kate is an amazing host and has set up her place for a great stay. She takes organization and hospitality to a soaring level, with well marked cabinets, cookies on the counter, iced beer in a cooler, cleanliness and order, a cute little porch bar and a backyard that invites relaxation (and a very happy dog). The neighborhood is quiet and offers easy access to all the delights of Madison. The house and decor are charming. Anyone with physical limitations needs to be aware that getting to bedrooms and bathrooms requires a flight of stairs. Other than that, it is a perfect place! (Note: We are senior citizens, with iffy knees.) You won't find a better hostess than Kate!
The home was great to stay at and had everything we needed and more. It even had a cooler stocked with drinks! The location was great and close to everything downtown— we bikes everywhere. The back yard was nice to use as well, we grilled and had a bonfire! Be aware that a dog stays there when guests aren’t so if you are allergic or aren’t used to dog smell, you may be surprised. Everything was very clean though. We expected it and are used to having dogs around so we didn’t mind.
