Cooksville Farmhouse Inn is a lovely B and B in a classic country setting. The accommodations were cozy and extremely comfortable, a home away from home. Located within an easy drive of Madison, we spent the afternoon browsing the shops on State Street and returned home to enjoy the evening on the farm, eating with friends and family, playing cards and enjoying the perfect rest that one can only get out of town. I very much enjoyed my time there and would go back in a heartbeat!
- 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
