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.

Great place

  • 5 of 5

The place is very spacious and nice. Key important things I liked:

- Had an organ

- 2 living rooms

- Back porch

- Hot tub/jacuzzi

- Lots of sleeping places

- Very large backyard

- Multiple electronic trash with recycle bins; The garbage dumpster was near the porch, making it easy to take out the trash.

The owner was very prompt and easy to communicate with. I would definitely consider this place again!

Stay at Horsefeather Creek

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Horsefeather Creek. We booked this facility for a family reunion and everybody in the family commented that the facilities were better than how it was described online. There was sufficient room for all of us to eat together (26 people). The kitchen facilities were adequate for the preparation of meals. The owner was very friendly and helpful. For example, when one light did not function, she had it fixed the next day. Similarly, there was immediate follow up to ensure that the telephone was in working order. Horsefeather Creek had plenty of indoor activities and facilities for outdoor activities. She even got a volleyball net and ball so that we could play volleyball. The owner was interested in our daily trips to nearby places. When she found out that we were interested in railroads, she made arrangements and took us to an acquaintance of hers so see a model railroad. We enjoyed the surrounding area, lakes, swimming, old railroad, State Capital building, local gardens and even the Mustard Museum.

Family Christmas

  • 5 of 5

Horsefeather Creek was a great destination for 3 families and Grandma to celebrate the holidays. We had plenty of room for 16 people and everything we needed to cook meals, play cards, or find a quiet spot for reading. Lindsey was also a great host, and we are likely to return for a future holiday.

Expansive but cozy in a lovely rural setting

  • 5 of 5

We gathered at Horsefeather Creek for our professional group's annual Christmas party, and it felt like a day retreat to a different time and place. While our needs were limited, the spacious home offers all kind of possibilities for family/friend gatherings, holidays, and special occasions. The decor is tasteful and cozy, and comfort is key: there are soft places to land in every room, and everything from the amenities to the lighting invites you to kick up your feet and enjoy the company of those around you.

The outdoor setting adds to the charm. The grounds cover lovely, rolling hills and offer the chance to watch farm animals (sheep and horses) in a relaxing rural setting. Pulling up the drive, I felt my workweek tension melt away. It was truly a treat to visit this beautiful place. I'll definitely consider it for a longer vacation stay with friends and relatives.

Mary Sue

  • 5 of 5

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.
