The Traveler's Nook is just that, a nook from which you can quickly travel to the wedding, football game, business or other event that brings you to Madison. Madison has excellent hotels and motels, but if you want relative calm, quiet and privacy, the nook may be right for you. As the attached photos show, the city skyline is a mile in the distance, but the lake, grill and park are just outside your door.
The Traveler's Nook has a private entrance and is on a separate level from the house. It is a half level down from ground level, so it is not wheelchair accessible. There are two double beds and one trundle bed, which works as a couch during the day and two single beds for sleeping. The room is spacious with areas for writing, reading or just lounging. You can freshen up or relax in the shower or sauna. The built-in bar has a sink, microwave, under counter refrigerator, coffee maker, dishes etc. to make your stay comfortable.
All bed linens, bath towels and sundries are provided, not to mention lake views, and plenty of natural light. When you walk in, if you like, strike a match and light a fire in the fireplace--it will be ready for you.
When coming to Madison, you will find a warm welcome at The Traveler's Nook. Please feel free to call or e-mail with any questions that you may have.
Why the Owner Chose Madison: There is a story here. The house is a Coxwold style brick cottage built in the 1920's and designed by Flad architects, a well-known local firm. The house was the downtown law office for a Wisconsin state senator. That is, until the county wanted to build a new courthouse right where the cottage was. To prevent its destruction, we purchased this beautiful house and moved it to a lake lot which we owned. The house is in an enclave of a dozen houses surrounded by a city park on Lake Monona with stunning views of the city skyline. The house and neighborhood were so pleasant and lovely that we decided to stay. We hope you will like it here too
