About Lindsey Jacobson

My husband and I purchased this home in 1982. We raised our children here along with horses, pet sheep, chickens, dogs and cats. We chose to open up HORSEFEATHER CREEK to others because it holds a special place in our hearts. It has so much to offer that we wanted to share it with our guests.

Why Lindsey Jacobson chose Madison

We have lived in this area all of our adult lives. We found this house and fell in love with it. We also wanted to raise our children in a country setting with lots of animals.

What makes this chateau / country house unique

Scenic country setting with wide open spaces yet having the convenience of being close to a big city and all that has to offer. This is a beautiful, comfortable and secluded home.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This is the 2nd time I've booked this property, and it was perfect again! We had a lot of family coming into town for our daughter's wedding, and Hosefeather Creek was ideal for a family reunion. Everything was very comfortable and clean. The property is gorgeous! The owner, Lin, is exceptionally accommodating and is very easy to work with. She knows the Madison area very well and had some awesome recommendations for dining and activities. It is just a couple of miles from I-94 and I-90, with easy access to all of Southern Wisconsin. The kitchens are well appointed. The kids (and one set of parents) were up one morning until 2:30 playing flashlight tag in the wooded area near the house. The sandy beach is a great place to relax, too. Everyone loved the hot tub.

Wedding retreat

  • 5 of 5
We came to Madison from NJ and were joined by family members from CT, NY, MA and CA, as well as several spots in the UK: Norwich, Sheffield, Bristol, Sevenoaks and Birmingham to celebrate the wedding of our son and his fiancée. Lindsey welcomed us and showed us around her wonderful home which is beautifully situated about 20 minutes from the Capitol. The house was the perfect getaway for our party of 18 adults ranging from college age to retirement. Her home is a labor of love, and is so well equipped we wanted for nothing. I highly recommend it for its location in the countryside, its proximity to the city of Madison and for everything both have to offer, as well as for the wonderful accommodation. Thank you so much.

Great Place for a Wisconsin Guys Getaway!

  • 5 of 5
Man, was this place a lifesaver! I had a group of about 12 guys who I needed to find last-minute lodging for on a bachelor party weekend (specifically, outdoorsy guys in their 30s whose primary focus it was to have a relaxed weekend in an serene location without the raucousness that a place like the Dells would entail). Horsefeather Creek was absolutely perfect. After about 48 hours of intense research, I came to the conclusion that there were only a handful of places in this region of Wisconsin that can handle this many people and offer this type of setting and privacy—and most are booked out way in advance. While this place is a bit too classy if you're looking for more of an "all-out rager" bachelor party (seriously, don't do it—too much nice stuff here that you would break and end up paying for), it's perfect for a more "mature" type of getaway for the gents. In essence, we were able to hoot and holler all we wanted, but also have the luxurious comforts of full kitchens, great sleeping quarters, outdoor grills and an awesome hot tub. Lindsey, the property owner/manager, is extremely gracious. She toured me around the place before I decided to rent, and was extremely friendly on the few occasions we saw her during our stay. She really went above and beyond the call to make us feel welcome (including tipping us off on the best hidden secret in the Madison area for pontoon rentals, as well ass some stellar dinner recommendations—go to Toby's for a fish fry!). Another great thing about this place is that cabs will come to and from it at all hours of the night, meaning you can do your thing in downtown Madison and still be safe and responsible. Other perks? TVs with Dish everywhere, not that you should need them much as the grounds are perfect for lawn games and general lounging and grilling. A/C works great as well. And the pool table room is a very sweet setup if you also rent out the downstairs. Nothing negative to say about the experience whatsoever. Price is perhaps a little high after the cleaning fees area factored in, but the larger the group you have, the cheaper it becomes. And, as I mentioned, places like this in this region of Wisconsin are really hard to come by. This place is a gem. It will be first on my list next time I have a bunch of people to entertain! Would also be perfect for a family reunion or really any sort of reunion that requires privacy, merriment and a serene, luxurious location. Thank you, Lindsey!

Great for a relaxing getaway

  • 5 of 5
Took my brother and a few of his friends here for a relaxing bachelor party. It's a beautiful spot and very spacious (all 10 of us had our own beds). If you're looking for a quiet spot to just grill some burgers, have beers, and chill in a hot tub, you won't be disappointed. Lindsey (the owner) was also very friendly and made us feel right at home.

Great comfortable stay for my large group of friends

  • 5 of 5
Horsefeather Creek is a very comfortable home where a large group can stay with plenty of places to sleep, gather and relax. And it's proximity to Madison, as well as to Costco, Target and Woodman's made it very easy to pick up groceries and hit the farmer's market. Our only wish would be to have the fire pit placed farther away from the small pond (too many bugs). Other than that we had a wonderful time, and we're extremely pleased that the owners were able to clean the entire home before our early arrival. We will definitely be back.

Family connections!

  • 5 of 5
Our large family enjoyed the space at Horsefeather Creek. It's seclusion so close to Madison allowed member of our family to join us for dinner and some afternoon relaxing as their schedule permitted. The spacious house let each family have some privacy as well as larger group areas so we could gather at meal-times. A clean and well furnished kitchen gave us many options for cooking and we happily celebrated life as a family. Thank you, Lindsey.
