We have been enjoying sharing our home with renters for 10 years now and we fill up our peak season every summer. We have a charming place that was brought up to date. We get lots of comments on how clean, cozy and comfortable our home is for our renters. The home is on a beautifully landscaped lot & right across the road is a grassy lot we own with the access to the beach. This lot is often used for volley ball, lawn games, sitting in the shade to watch the waves and sun sets. It is also used for extra parking or larger parties. Lots of room here.

We had the best time staying in this cozy cottage. Everything was so clean! The gas fire place was lit every night. The private beach was a wonderful place to sit and read for me. My husband had fun fishing. There were so many cottage amenities! We found everything that we needed in the kitchen. It was a perfect fall getaway. (I want to go back....today! :) Thanks to Paul & Tris for sharing this hidden treasure with us!
Everything you might need is in this home. The kitchen was fully stocked. Paul is the nicest guy you might ever meet. He made sure that we could build a fire down by the lake and only came over to get our payment. Felt very much at home. We enjoyed ourselves so much and wish we could have stayed longer.
My two girlfriends and I just came back from staying at this delightful cottage and cannot express enough our joy at finding this place! We have been going on girls getaways for around 25 years and have stayed at many different places but Paul and Trish's place is now our #1 favorite place! The cottage is SO clean and well stocked in all areas of the home. The owners were so accommodating and seemed to really enjoy sharing their home with guests. If you are thinking of staying somewhere else in Madison, you're making a wrong decision. haha! We are so excited to come back next year and once again extend our sincere thanks to Paul and Trish for making our extended getaway so relaxing and enjoyable!
Paul & Tris have a wonderful cottage, equipped with everything one needs! I would recommend anyone to this delightful home. I had a great stay for 5 weeks and appreciate all that Paul did for me.
In my book, having spent many relaxing cottage vacations at Madison-on-the-Lake over the last 50 years, Paul & Tris have created the ideal Lake cottage. The cottage is clean, warm and inviting, the kitchen is modern and extremely well-equipped, the beds are plentiful & cozy (clean sheets waiting on arrival!), a big league outdoor natural gas grill is right off the kitchen, A/C or gas heat if you need it (we didn't), and a private beach a short walk out the front door and across the street. My expectations were greatly exceeded. I can echo previous comments about Paul & Tris. They are great people. Close by if you need them, but respect your privacy. Terrific.
The house was perfect for our family get-away! Beautifully decorated and landscaped, very clean, and in a great location. They thought of everything from additional sleeping accommodations to spices in the cabinets and life jackets and sand toys in the storage bin at the private beach area. The owners are very friendly and really give you your privacy while still making you feel right at home. It's a great place to stay at a very reasonable price. We are definitely considering going back there again!
