I totally agree with Kate A.'s review. This is a nice spot for a girl's get-away. Comfortable sitting room for chatting and catching up. There were no coffee cups or glasses in the cottage, we had brought our own so that wasn't a problem; if we had asked, the owners would most likely have supplied what we needed.

The Cothren Cottage is the perfect get-away for a couple. When we arrived we were greeted on the front porch by the sweetest little gray cat. That really added to the charm! The cabin is very well maintained and clean. It's great that the owners have been able to add modern amenities without taking away from the authentic charm. The... More

We were glad we selected the 179 year old Cothren Cabin for our stay in historic Mineral Point and a visit to Frank Lloyd Wright's Taliesin. The place is very quiet, incredibly unique, and full of charm. It's authentic, yet with modern amenities, like central heat and air. 'Loved the walk-in fireplace with a window and a warming seat.

Thanks for the review - and for posting your wonderful pictures. I needed a better picture of the stairway and I like the way you captured the window in the fireplace. Thanks again! Lisa More

The Cothren Cottage is the perfect get-away for a couple, small family or, as we did, a gal's weekend away from the husbands. Two bedrooms, a living room and bath, it is charmingly decorated to be comfy but not fou-fou. It has a truly great shower, coffee-maker, microwave, fridge, wireless internet and TV. Cozy and peaceful, it was totally quiet... More

My wife Susan and I have stayed in the Cothren Cabin 2 or 3 times and in the upstairs High Street Suites this year. They are all delightful. The cabin is old, warm and sweet. We rented it in winter, right after New Years Eve and enjoyed sitting, reading and just being together. Yes it has a steep stairway. This... More

We were in awe as we walked into the Cothren Cabin; staying there is a must have experience. The Cabin is rustic, yet clean and cozy, wonderful and full of charm with just enough updating for a very comfortable stay, (i.e. central heat and A/C, great shower), and appropriately furnished with a back-in-time feel. Located in a quiet area of... More

I stumbled upon this cabin while scouring Mineral Point for subject matter to paint. I almost couldn't believe my eyes when I saw this cabin. This is exactly what I had hope to find. I send a couple of photos to my son to show him my find. He researched it and found out that it was a lodging experience... More

A stay at this quaint, cozy cabin is a very unique experience. It's nicely furnished and has a bedroom loft. There's small bathroom and a very good shower. Settling down at night with a fire, wine and Wisconsin cheese was wonderful. The cabin is located next to the Cothren House and backs up to an open area. We enjoyed a... More

Thanks for the nice review and for the input. I just changed the lightbulbs to a higher wattage so they'll be better for reading. And, I will add some tumblers for beverages. I appreciate your feedback! ~ Lisa More
