The house had a lot of historic character, but with the modern conveniences of a dishwasher, air conditioning and wifi. I stayed here while visiting family in the area, but the house itself could have been the destination if you were hoping to spend quality time with family and/or were interested in the history of the area. There is more... More

We had a large family gathering of kids and adults (coming from Milwaukee, St. Paul, and San Francisco) at Cooksville Farmhouse to celebrate my Mom's 70th birthday. We had a lovely weekend in this charming and comfortable farmhouse & beautiful landscape. We enjoyed the game room, admired the collection of books and quilts and enjoyed learning about the history of... More

Summer is such a great time to stay in the farmhouse. These folks took advantage of the best that we have to offer. It's really fun for us to see people enjoy the place. They mentioned the "fully stocked kitchen." I just wanted to be clear that we do supply cooking equipment, but due to health department rules, we cannot... More

Loved it! Bob and Martha are lovely -- place is perfect in every way for a great stay! Couldn't improve on anything! Excellent hospitality & attention to detail! My husband loved all the books! Could spend months reading! Beautiful prairie & outdoors, too! Coming from the city (Chicago), we really enjoyed the outside grilling area and also picking fruit from... More

We wanted to thank you for our wonderful stay at the farmhouse. It was perfect for our family. The trails, fireplaces, view, mules, books and especially the full body massager. What a fun-filled time. Thank you for the perfect weather, also. Hope to see you again.

We reserved the farmhouse for a family holiday gathering just after Christmas in 2013 for four days. There was room for 10 of us - which is hard to find at such a great price - and even extra guests for dinner. At times we had up to 15 people socializing in the various rooms of the farmhouse and never... More

We weren't treated very nicely . They walked in the home while we were in bed. Door was locked. The house is cold. Price went up 50% during our time. Policy changed when we got there and were charged for a night we didn't use the extra room. Very disappointed. Had planned on returning every year.

We were looking for a cozy place to stay and celebrate our 10th wedding anniversary/second honeymoon. We wanted privacy, a fireplace, and a kitchen, as well as outdoor space to enjoy the snow. Cooksville Farmhouse had all this and more! It is absolutely perfect and Bob and Martha are lovely people and great hosts and provided everything we needed including... More

What a delight to host these folks for their special celebration. There is nothing more satisfying in the hospitality business than to see people enjoy your place. We sure hope these people come back and bring their friends. More

Seven of us were able to enjoy a weekend full of scrapbooking and socializing. We had plenty of room to set up our tables and supplies and still had space to relax and enjoy the fireplace and woodstove. The house and property are beautiful and the owners did a wonderful job making us feel welcomed! Even though it is an... More

It was great to see these folks making good use of the house in a way we hadn't seen before. I never knew scrapbooking required so many supplies. The common areas of the house are big enough that they could really spread out. They moved furniture out of their way and made the space work for them. They also very... More

Our extended family spent a great (but very hot!) weekend in June at the Cooksville Farmhouse Inn. We received a pre-trip email letting us know the air conditioning would be on for our arrival, and that was much appreciated. The setting is simply wonderful, with beautiful views across the prairie. We all enjoyed walking through the prairie and around the... More

My husband I spent a much needed relaxing weekend in April at the farmhouse. Even though it is so conveniently located close to both Madison and Chicago it really gives you a feeling of being far away from the daily grind. The open and bright farmhouse, the scenery around and the hosts made the visit incredibly relaxing, leaving us wanting... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Cooksville Farmhouse Inn is located 19 miles from Madison and 2 hours from Chicago. The farmhouse, originally built c. 1845, is on the National Register of Historic Places along with most of the village. It is set beside a lovely restored prairie crisscrossed by paths for snow shoeing in the winter and walks along the spring-fed stream in the summer. Enjoy the quiet, rustic, family friendly atmosphere of the farmhouse which has a soapstone woodstove and a massive free standing fireplace to keep guests cozy when the snow flies, a large deck and stone patio area for barbeques and outdoor meals in warm weather, as well as great views of the prairie and sunsets. ... more   less
