We are very close to the interstate and an easy drive from the Madison airport. East side of Madison is just a short drive (10 - 15 min depending on location). Some renters have stayed with us that were going to the University, but for others it was a little far. It's about 30-45 min drive to the University depending on traffic and time of the day. There is no bus stop near us. There are some routes you can take which help with the drive. If you have any questions please just ask. Thank you!
We have a 3 bedroom ranch home in a quiet subdivision just outside of DeForest, WI and minutes from Madison, WI and local attractions. Note that I have the price listed for one person. Each additional person is $10 more per night. If you put in your dates and how many people the site will figure out your total. It best fits up to 2 people, but we could probably work out accommodations for a 3rd person. Before you book your reservation please fill out your profile and send me an inquiry message to confirm dates and we can make sure we are a good suit for one another. Our home is best suited for mature traveler(s) who are here for business or exploring Madison and surroundings. If you wish to party hard, it's best to find another location or try couch surfing.
Outdoor patio with table and chairs, internet, tv with local tv stations, dvd player, and roku with Netflix or Amazon tv in spare bedroom, plus closet and dresser space in your queen bedroom. Tv is also in the living with the same tv options. Private bathroom is located just across the hallway for your use. Full kitchen for use with an island and stools in addition to a full dining room table.
Basement is unfinished but features a treadmill, dvd player w/ tv (local channels, amazon, netflix) and a couch. The couch in the basement also has a pull out bed if you'd need space for additional people, which is why I said it accommodates up to 3. It is however, not heated in the basement, which is nice in summer as it is cool down there, but a bit chilly (50s Fahrenheit) in winter. I also have a queen air mattress and I have two camping cots that could be placed in other warmer areas of the home. If you will be bringing additional people just let us know upon communicating at the booking time.
Fresh towels and linens are provided. Just let me know in advance where you expect to sleep and the number of people and I'll have them all ready for you on your arrival. I do ask you to pull all linens off the sleeping areas before you leave. Additionally, a full Maytag front loading washer and dryer are located in the mud room between the garage door and the kitchen if you would need to do an laundry while here.
Walking and biking trails nearby. I like to keep a clean home and prefer you bring no pets. There is street parking and it's alternate side parking in winter, but any other time either side of the street is allowed. Also, there is some room in the basement if you have a few things to store, just ask.
I ask that you leave things as you found them, clean up after yourself and smoking is not permitted on the property.
A nearby local bakery is within walking distance for baked items and coffee as well as a local post office. A very nice large county park is a short 5 min drive and a local fireman's park with baseball diamonds is a short walk. Grocery store is about 5 min away as well. Public transportation is not available here.
You will have to check out these places on the net or ask me. This website doesn't let me post links.

Interaction with guests
My boyfriend, Brad and I are typically around off and on. We also have one friendly chocolate lab that lives with us. My house has never had cats in it though if you are allergic to them.
Clean up after yourself. Treat my home as you would your own or for those of you who might be a tad messy, better than your own. No smoking on the property. Please inquire if you have questions on the no smoking policy, otherwise we will assume are you also a non smoker and will not be smoking inside or outside our home.
I keep a tidy house and request you will do the same.
