This was an amazing location for a stay. I've stayed downtown and I know what's there. We were no more than 15 minutes away from anything - including some amazing spots right near the house! - Jan has just set the standard (for me) for other hosts. - Communication was great. - Br…

Beautiful & serene lakefront property on Lake Mendota with an across the lake view of the capitol & UW skyline. Jan & Drew are very gracious hosts. This is a place to relax and unwind and enjoy the lake view.

Response from Jan:
Hey Anna, I am so sorry if we made you feel in any way uncomfortable regarding the tv. You were indeed very respectful and great guests in every way. There a re not very many guests who do end up watching TV in that part of our house so maybe we just looked surprised. Again, so sorry if we were ungracious in any way. Please come back and watch anytime! :)

The pictures do not do this place justice. We were in Madison for the 2018 Crossfit Games and stayed at Jan's place four nights. It felt like a home away from home, but with a lake! Jan was very responsive and accommodating to our group during our stay in Madison.
