Perfect for singles traveling for business, couples visiting the area for a wedding or special event and the natural woodland garden is just what's needed for a quiet retreat or a perfect get away for a few days relaxation. Large deck is attached to your bedroom with shaded canopy, 2 lounge chairs, pillows, ferns, hanging plants, and mesmerizing daily shows provided by many humming birds...all with a great view of the gardens and sunsets.

The space

House interior is modern with interesting art pieces and that is changed out often and Christmas is uniquely original "Steampunk" as some photos show...everything is meant to be visually interesting. Living room has comfortable furniture, whiten marble gas fireplace, a small world travel, garden, art and world history library for you to enjoy.

This attention to detail is carried out into the secluded acre woodland garden with forest walking path, cool owner welded "Cubicon"sculpture, over 1000 natural plants, 550 Hostas and ferns, and the mirrored "Imersive" WALK in work of art...yeah..walk in. Several garden benches let you enjoy the sunset view over the country fields while the horses graze. Garden has night time romantic Italian Lights, gas fire table surrounded with comfortable guest chairs/ pillows and in the dark of this rural setting the stars perform nightly far removed from city lights in natural silence.

Entire garden is attached to neighboring horse ranch with 37 horses (usually 8-10 adorable newborn colts every spring! Hammock and barefoot grass area is to be enjoyed with a good book or a bottle of wine provided as a gift by your host.

Guest access

Kitchen is available for your use, includes Kurig coffees, ciders or hot chocolate, microwave, full fridge, stove, and odds and ends you might need. Counters are Brazilian Black granite, modern dining table, full China, and all the pots / pans you want. Large attached deck overlooks garden and horse pasture view with outdoor hot tub accessible from your bedroom patio doors also. Speaking of which, bedroom suite has private full bath, shower and washer / dryer for your use. Bedroom has 55 " Curved Samsung Television that has Netflix included. Your bedroom patio door opens to deck with sitting area and hot tub...nothing beats soaking for an hour before hitting the hay and your guaranteed to sleep like a baby. Second bedroom with full sized bed is also available for your friends, family or children right next to yours.

Interaction with guests

Owner occupies 2nd upper bedroom (and is gone most often with a busy career) and a tenant occupies lower level (who is also gone working in the same business) so your housemate is most often, Buddy, a beautiful and friendly husky mix when he's not on squirrel patrol. Lower level bathroom is not yet complete so owner requires occasional use of the separate general upstairs bathroom but otherwise can be like a Ninja and you don't see him...seriously I tell you this in advance because I / we are not around are "on your own" more than not and most young couples ' travelers like that part of the experience too.

Check in and Check out times are flexible, and can be any time of day. I have a large garden / woodland / Zen like place that is fairly quiet so it's a great retreat kind of experience...not so much a place for loud or boisterous groups...great for couples visiting people or attending weddings or business travelers. So no parties, or groups joining you...a friend or two to enjoy all this with you for a bit though is totally cool...great place to connect with people you haven't seen so inviting one or two of them to visit you while here is table, sitting areas, gardens, grass patches, chairs and sitting benches are all around the double lot property along with walking path in the woods. Gorgeous sunsets, wildlife, moon and stars in the black of night FREE of charge...double person hammock too.

If you want seclusion and privacy and the most fantastic host . . .I wouldn't stay anywhere else near Janesville WI. Rod's beautiful Air B n B listing is definitely the best experience.

What a wonderful stay - great location of being private yet still close to everything. Enjoyed the peacefulness and spectacular hospitality! All the amenities you could think of and then some. Spent time outside, in the hot tub, used Netflix, Alexa, and appreciated the hot coffee and delicious food. Looking forward to staying again in the future.
