We love traveling, and rather than stay in hotels, we chose to find the B&B's in England, Scotland, N. Ireland, & Ireland; roms or hus rums in Norway and Sweden, the Gastzimmers in Germany, B&B in a barn in Austria, and chambre or pension in France and Switzerland. Each one created a memory. We'd like our new guests to leave, having created that memory.

Tom and I were born and raised in Brodhead, a wonderful community then, and a wonderful community now. We have owned the property for many years, and decided to convert it into a vacation property for others to enjoy as they visit Brodhead and the surrounding area. We have other vacation properties in FL, Egg Harbor and Bailey's Harbor, Door County, WI, and Lake Delton at Wilderness on the Lake. Since Brodhead has no motels, we decided to give Brodhead vacationers a place to be.
You should choose to stay in Brodhead because of family & friends, or activities in and around the surrounding area. You might also be traveling through, or discover it when relocating here for your job . Whatever the reason, we know you'll love it. Guests have expressed their pleasure with the uniqueness of Maggie's Loft.
We stayed here for six nights. We came for Cheese Days in Monroe and to visit relatives. How nice to have a sweet place like Maggie's Loft to retreat to after such busy events.
My list of what I real liked:
The comfortable bed
The roomy closet with lots of hangers
Lots of empty drawers to move into - hate living out of a suitcase
The nice kitchen with everything we needed.
The living room chairs turned into comfortable beds (my brother and his wife stayed one night)
Everything clean - lots of towels and paper products
Motion detecting night lights . . .
The attention to detail is much appreciated.
I would live here happily, and have done just that for six nights.
The loft was such a nice little place. The pictures are exactly as you see them, and decorated so nicely. It was very peaceful and quiet in a nice neighborhood and a great size for two. We have been to the area in the past, so was familiar with the area. It was very comfy and would love to stay again. The kitchen had an abundance of supplies. Thanks so much to Bev and Tom or such great accomodations.
Loft as beautiful as pictures. Since my trip was not for pleasure, I enjoyed being able to escape to a peaceful and quiet area. I had a few questions and the owner or secretary responded immediately. Would love to stay again so I can visit more of the area. Did find time to visit a dairy and purchase great cheeses and ice cream. Thanks to Bev and Tom for comfortable, peaceful accommodations.
My husband and I reserved this home for New Years Eve. What a beautiful loft apartment with warm colors and very comfy furniture you never want to get up from. The loft is beautifully decorated with self-closing cabinents/drawers, beautiful dishes, comfy bed, nice wood blinds, and hardware floors. The view from the windows is wonderful, as the surrounding homes are well cared for. We would highly recommend this loft as the owners are warm and welcoming and the loft is one of a kind. Once you stay there, you will not forget it! The "warm feeling" it provides, becomes etched in your mind. Thank you forever, Maggie, for providing such a warm, welcoming spot to relax and dream.
My husband and I arrived at Maggie's Loft on a Saturday evening. Everything was just as described and pictured. The upstairs unit has it's own entrance with carpeted steep stairs. Once we opened the door we felt right at home. The size was perfect for the two of us. There is a nice walk-in closet with plenty of coat hangers. The apartment was very clean and very well appointed with an iron, hair drier, different choices of dishes as well as glasses and coffee cups. We used the property for 8 days as a central location to explore Southern Wisconsin and Northern Illinois. We were not disappointed, and stayed busy the whole week taking day trips in all directions. Tom and Bev were excellent hosts with a wealth of information. We've made new friends, and look forward to seeing them again down our way.
We had a wonderful experience staying at Maggie's Loft in Brodhead, WI. It is off the beaten path, quiet and exactly what we were looking for. It is on the second floor of a home (there is a tenant living below) in the quaint town of Brodhead. The owners were kind, accommodating and very easy to talk to when it came to answering my questions. Their kitchen was full of top of the line cooking utensils, coffee maker, appliances, garbage disposal, etc. They also had the apartment fully-stocked with cleaning supplies, clean towels and linens. The only thing we needed to buy was food to cook! They had high-speed wireless internet, which was helpful since I had very little cell phone reception (verizon) in Brodhead. They had 2 rooms with a TV in each room so my fiance and I could watch our own shows without bugging the other person. The shower had excellent water pressure. The heat worked wonderfully. I have nothing but positive thoughts about my experience staying at Maggie's Loft. I hope we can stay at another property in the near future as we had a great time. Brodhead has a Piggly Wiggly, 24 hour gas station, a few restaurants and a bowling alley. 20 minutes away in Monroe is our favorite market, Brennan's.
Maggie's loft left us with an excellent impression!! We booked last minute and the owners were more than accommodating. The loft is located only a few hours from Chicago, which makes it perfect for a quiet, weekend getaway!
The loft is VERY well decorated and very, very comfortable. We felt right at home! The owners are a very gracious couple--welcoming, accepting, informed, and seemingly always willing to help! They provided us with a breadth of information about Brodhead. The loft itself is immaculately clean and is as described here on VRBO. The photos actually don't do justice to the loft's incredible charm!
Although, the block that the loft is located on is somewhat lackluster, everyone was very friendly and helpful. The downtown area of Brodhead is full of little shops, restaurants, and a few pubs. Everyone that we ran into was so kind--a definite breath of fresh air from the chaos of the big city. To top it all off, the downtown area is within walking distance from the loft. We definitely enjoyed the peace and quiet and we would go back in a heartbeat!
