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.

Lindsey Jacobson purchased this chateau / country house in 1982

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.

Our families gathered at Horsefeather Creek for our daughter's wedding in downtown Madison. The accommodations are wonderful, spacious bedrooms, luxurious bed and bath furnishings, plenty, (I mean PLENTY) of dishes, etc, in the kitchen. There were 14 of us and we went through a lot of dishes. Lindsey is a lovely hostess and we were given a tour of the house so we had an idea of where to find everything. We all spent a lot of time in the family room and dining room which were both very cozy for visiting. All of us has a great time, it was so nice to be in one place rather than scattered throughout different hotels. The only thing any of us commented on is that on the dark road, it is very easy to pass the address, maybe bigger numbers on a separate sign would help. Thank you for everything, Lindsey.

Crafting Country getaway

  • 5 of 5
We used this amazing location for a crafting get away. With multiple large rooms we could spread out our supplies. When we needed a break we could play pool, take a dip in the hot tub, chill in another room with a movie or go outside and enjoy the beautiful country. Who doesn't relax when watching horses? With a short walk around the grounds we were refreshed and ready to craft again. It was decorated for the holidays already which was a sweet touch. We totally plan to return again when it's warmer to use the fire pit/beach area.

Family gathering

  • 5 of 5
We rented this beautiful home for a gathering of relatives. We had children in the group from 3 years old to 8. The grounds are lovely with lots of area to run and play. There is a small beach with sand toys that was much enjoyed. The house allows for plenty of room to have separation and privacy. There is a large kitchen with plenty of equipment. One more bathroom would be nice when the house is full but that would not stop me from returning again. Everyone raved about the place.

Fantastic! No Other Place Like This in the Madison Area!

  • 5 of 5
Horsefeather Creek was the perfect place for our group of 14—five couples and 4 of their 20-something kids. I think that other reviewers have also used the word “perfect" because this place includes characteristics seldom found together in one rental home. It's close to Madison, but it's on a partially wooded lot and feels secluded. The house is elegant and also comfortable. The main floor is huge and has three rooms with foldouts and close-able doors, so that even those of us not sleeping in the upstairs bedrooms had privacy (this is something I didn’t find in any of the other Madison area rentals I researched). The huge kitchen accommodated multiple chefs and chefs’ helpers. Two dining areas allowed our large group to spilt into two smaller segments, which made dinner conversations more intimate. The house and grounds were clean and well cared for. Lindsey, the owner, was gracious, accommodating, and quick to answer any questions I had about the house. What’s not to like? I hope to have a reason to stay there again.

Family wedding gathering

  • 5 of 5
Our stay at Horsefeather was magical! It not only met our expectations, it far exceeded them in every way! The house was exactly as advertised, and Lindsey and Aaron were gracious, welcoming and very accommodating of our needs.
This VRBO rental is ideal for families wishing to spend quality time together, as there are multiple areas of the house for relaxing, so many activities available on the property, and it is located with such each access to Madison and all it has to offer.
We hosted a post-wedding brunch for the newly-married couple at the house, and the well-stocked kitchens, available parking, and multiple places to visit and gather we're perfect for this. We highly recommend Horsefeather and look forward to returning.

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.
