($$$ Pricing is based per side.) You need to be at least 26 or have a parent present - no exceptions! Will need ID. Stay truly first class in this quality Villa. 3000 square feet per side (279 square meters) with very high end beds and linens. Brazilian Walnut wood and insulated porcelain tile flooring.This is a great place for families and friends to gather near Madison and nature. Relax and enjoy life! Oak Savannah Villas are 15 minutes to east side, 25 minutes to downtown and west side, 1 hour to Milwaukee or Wisconsin Dells and 2 hours to Chicago. Located in Deerfield (53531) with quick access to 12/18 (Beltline) and I-94. Brand new beautiful villas with European influences in a quiet neighborhood. Maple wood trim throughout, high ceilings, porcelain tile and granite everywhere. 2 separate and large open living areas with several high quality reclining leather chairs and sofas. Two(2) beautiful granite gas fireplaces per side. Save money and eat healthier using the very large kitchen fully stocked cooking utensils, plates, glasses and silverware. Several prep areas loaded with near top of the line appliances. Double door gas oven - One small that I use for pizza and warming up baked goods. Powerful microwave vented hood. Extra deep stainless steel double sink with pullout faucets. Filtered water through the door refrigerator. Deerfield water has been rated as having one of the best tasting water in the state! Appliances are stainless high end LG & Samsung products. If you like to cook this is as good as it gets for residential! All surfaces in kitchen, bathrooms, ledges and sills are granite. Please note prices are for first 6 persons/side. More than 6 is $20/person/night.

The screened in porch is the number one place that people love to congregate and hang out in. It faces directly South so you can watch sun and moon rises and sets overlooking 2 nicely landscaped backyards. There is also a lower level walkout concrete patio. Stainless steel gas grill in screened in porch (221) and a Weber charcoal grill in 217 to be used outside by garage. All 4 bedrooms are very private with no common walls or floors with other bedrooms. There are 2 master suites with high end Queen beds. The fourth bedroom has 2 twins in 221 and a Queen in 217. Lower level has an additional family room so you can have 2 separate areas. (Simmons Queen sleeper sofa (decent mattress for a pullout) There are additional mattresses and air mattresses and single cots available upon request) There are three (3) separate bathrooms with handheld showers with flow control.

The brand new water conserving appliances (dishwasher & washer) use very little water and combined with a water softener very little soap is needed for any washing activity. Literally 1 teaspoon for most dish and washer loads!

Please bring your slippers or house shoes since the floors are all wood or porcelain tile. (cool floors)

WiFi access with Internet speeds up to 30 Mbps down. Bring your own laptop. There are 2 60" TV's upstairs and 2 50" TV's downstairs that use Dish Network Hopper with Joey's. The DVR has many movies available to view. you may also rent movies and leave cash on counter top when leaving. Usually $6 per movie. There are also at least 2 Blu-Ray players attached to upstairs TV's that also have amplified sound with subwoofers. I hope you don't come here to watch TV!! Get outside you're 10 minutes walking distance to the big Glacial Drumlin trail. Go left for 7 miles to Cottage Grove or right 12 miles to Lake Mills and have a great beer at Tyranena Brewing company which has a grill there for you to use! Very family oriented. I love the intimate small bands that play to a group of 30 people or so.

You are less than 5 minutes by bike to the Glacial Drumlin Bike trail that connects Iowa to Milwaukee! Cottage Grove to Waukesha is the popular local route that features at least 47 miles of flat biking! You don't have to bike - walking is great too! You are 15 - 20 minutes to many lakes. There are 5 Madison Lakes! (4 are connected and boat rentals available.) Rock Lake in Lake Mills has 2 beautiful public beaches. Sandy Beach ($4/adult) is my favorite with almost 1500' of white sand shoreline and has all sorts of rentals available. Bartel's Beach on the Eastern shore also has a quaint set up with grills and picnic tables. Please search for them online. The water is very clear and you can bike there from home and have a little picnic! You are 8 minutes from Cambridge which also has a public beach and boat rentals. There is skiing all around us - Cross country, skate skiing and downhill.

When inquiring it would be great if you could provide the age range, male to female ratio and purpose of visit. ( Tell me a little bit about yourself. It helps me because I'm offering my home to strangers.) Also, please be honest with headcount and save us both from embarrassment which could have you evicted. Thank you!

On average the place is cleaned for 12 person hours between groups. There is a $150 cleaning fee.

As you approach the condo you will see the large illuminated 'Oak Savannah' sign in the front yard.

About Otto Rosemeyer

Welcome to my latest project. I've lived in several places including California and Germany and have come back to the fun and friendly Madison area. I brought back some of the designs from my travels. If you like open flowing large rooms with lots of light - you might like this place! Madison really has a nice small city atmosphere in a beautiful part of the world with great natural resources and close to many activities. If you are looking for a beautiful place to spend some time with friends and family you'll like the many things that Madison and surrounding cities have to offer.

Otto Rosemeyer purchased this villa in 2013

Why Otto Rosemeyer chose Wisconsin

After having built condos for 20 years it took a year to find this building site with southern exposure and lower level walkout next to woods and the incredible Glacial Drumlin bike trail that has over 50 miles of flat biking/hiking. I like the short 20 minute drive from downtown to be closer to nature and a little time to think about the day's events. I have also discovered a beautiful lake with a sandy beach 15 minutes from the condos!

What makes this villa unique

Enjoy a nice summer evening in the screened in porch having your favorite beverage or treat watching the moon rise. All 3 bathrooms have hand held showers as well as granite counter tops and window ledges. There are basically 2 living rooms so you can have an area for kids if you want separation. Some of the queen beds are very high end mattresses - hopefully you will rest well and recover for your normal routine.

Fantastic weekend in a beautiful home!

  • 5 of 5

We spent two nights at the house. Our son was being married in Madison, and we needed a place that would be convenient and allow family from out of state to hang out and relax together. It was perfect for our needs.

There were sleeping spots for all 12 of us. The kitchen was well stocked so we could make brunch for everyone without a problem. The house was clean and beautiful. We loved relaxing on the deck and looking out at the view.

We had an excellent time!

Oak Savannah was the perfect place for our wedding party to stay! We had a large group (over twenty) and this house not only accommodated us all, but had two full kitchens and plenty of rooms and bathrooms for the whole wedding party to get ready. The house is very nice with beautiful closed in porches. It was the ideal situation and was located so close to our venue. I'm so glad we stayed here, I would definitely recommend it to large parties.

Ladies Family Reunion, St. Patty's Day celebration and a surprise Bridal shower

  • 5 of 5

Annually we pick a rental home "in-between" the relatives for a Ladies weekend. We get woman from Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, Wisconsin, Iowa, Minnesota and a couple flying in from Texas.

We had a lovely stay in the twin townhouses. Everyone enjoyed the accommodations, we enjoyed the townhouses so much we spent most of our time there. But we did fit in walks in the neighborhood, and a couple excursions to Madison, downtown Deerfield and the Outlets.

Wonderful and Cosy Home

  • 5 of 5

We had the greatest experience with Otto and his house. Starting from the beginning Otto is very attending, accommodating and quick with responses-yet unobtrusive. We are 10 people (3 couples and 4 kids age from 1 to 9), spending 3 nights in his house. The house is 2 levels, 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms upstairs and 2 bedrooms and 1 bathroom downstairs, it's very modern, warm and spacious, we can tell he built the house with a lot of cares and details (nice wood panel deck ceiling!!). The kitchen is large and greatly equipped (we love the gas grill in the deck)-we cooked breakfast and dinner there for 10 without problem. The bathrooms are beautiful with heating floor (we stayed in COLD Feb, so it was very nice to have warm floor), water pressure was great. We originally were planning to stay in Madison downtown hotels, so glad that we didn't, Otto's place is truly wonderful, it's great for friends or family gathering, the kids are already asking us to go back in summer!!

I highly recommend staying in Otto's place!!

This made our vacation work out!

  • 5 of 5

Over Christmas, my family reflected on the wonderful Thanksgiving holiday we spent it these two villas. With 15 people ranging in age from 9 mons to 67 years, finding the right spot was difficult. The side by side villas gave everyone a space to gather in small groups -some noisy, some quiet. The kitchens were well appointed so that we had an easy time making TG dinner for everyone. Both villas were spotless and comfortable. The fireplaces made wonderful spots for cuddling with a book, a family member, or a grandchild. What really made the deal though was how wonderful the owners were to work with - patient when I got confused about the deposit, eager to supply anything we needed, and fast getting our deposit returned. I can not recommend this villa and owner enough. It made the weekend so easy for us - important when there are 15 personalities to please!!!

Car: necessary

Near Glacial Drumlin hike/bike trail 19 miles east of the Capital in Madison, less than an hour to Milwaukee and 2 hours to Chicago. It can take about 15 to 25 minutes to a Madison destination. The Norwegian settled town was mostly a farming community and now has become one of Madison's high value commuter villages with excellent schools and close to nature. Don't miss the Glacial Drumlin trail and walk, run or bike connecting Iowa to Milwaukee. Travel through deciduous and coniferous woods, marshes, creeks and crystal clear lake in Lake Mills. Exceptional access to Madison via the interstate (I-94) to the north and the Beltline (12/18) to the south. Swimming, tennis, golf, biking, running, boating and skiing are all around us.
