Mere words cannot say what a great place this is. It was the perfect match for what we needed. I contacted Kathy about 9 months ago to reserve the rooms. My husband and I and another 2 guys had the whole house to ourselves. It was wonderful. We were there for a Wisconsin Badger game. We walked everywhere. It was about halfway between the stadium and downtown. We stayed 2 nights and the breakfasts were unbelievable. We had sherry in the sitting room, champagne at night, perrier water in the room and even could have had a picnic in the backyard if we wanted. Kathy and Mike will do just about anything for you. Never met nicer people while on a trip. There was only one drawback and that was the train early Saturday morning at 3am and 5am going through. It had to blow the horn several times at about 4 or 5 intersections. Kathy also made sure we had a map of the town and told us of several places to eat and things to do. She also told us that about 75 people had contacted her for the house after I had reserved it, so I'm so glad I researched as early as I did. This is a beautiful 100 year old home in a great location.
