A Touch of Country living is a wonderful property and our hosts were fantastic! Barb thought of literally everything. We lacked for nothing. The property is new, spacious, and very well appointed. The location is great. We went into Madison and also up to the Devil's Lake area. We enjoyed the patio for morning coffee and the yard games for evening fun. After hiking/kayaking in the record heat, it was so nice having the washer/dryer to clean our clothes so we didn't have to pack them dirty. The whole cottage is spacious and the beds were very comfortable. I can't say enough good things about this property. Would love to return and make this an annual retreat. I highly recommend staying here. Many thanks to Barb and Butch for sharing their lovely home with us.
We really enjoyed having you as guests and you left our Guest House in such good condition. Thank you for sharing your Bucky On Parade pictures with us. We plan to get more and I would like to make a Shutterfly book of Bucky on Parade. It sounds like you had a good time touring the Wisconsin State Capital and visiting Devil's Lake State Park. Maybe you will be able to come again as there is a lot to see in this area. Wishing you the very best.

Clean, neat, updated---just lovely!
My husband and I and our 3 kids stayed here while on our first trip to Wisconsin. Barb was so welcoming and accommodating, responsive and informative. The home was updated, fresh, clean, and just perfect for our family. I would stay here again in a heartbeat. Thank you so much.
We enjoyed having your family stay in our Guest House. Thank you for sharing your Bucky on Parade pictures for the Shutterfly book I am making. By the pictures it looks like you were able to visit many place in the Madison area while you were here.
We couldn't have asked for anything better. Modern, clean, well maintained and a perfect rural setting only minutes from downtown Madison. The bed was far more comfortable than any hotel and the complimentary water and chocolates were a delightful touch. I've been to 39 countries, 9 islands and 23 states and I can honestly say this is the best place I have ever stayed. I assure you the next trip we plan to Madison we'll be looking to stay here again. Kudos to the proprietors and four thumbs up from me and my wife!

Clean, Quality, Friendly - Stay Here!
We had a wonderful stay! As soon as we walked in we were impressed by the cleanliness of the home, the quality and care put into every detail, and the amenities provided. We were in town for a wedding and my husband's parents came to watch our 7 month old daughter. It was so nice for them to have a clean place to stay with space for our daughter to roll around and play, rather than in a hotel room. We brought a lot of our own food and everything we could need was available to us - toaster, coffee pot, dishes, utensils, etc. Washer and dryer were available if needed. There were plenty of towels for the four of us and the beds were very comfortable. If it wasn't so hot and humid we would have enjoyed the lovely patio. I wish we could have stayed longer it was so nice! Barb was very accommodating and friendly. If we ever need a place to stay near Madison again, this will definitely be our first choice! We highly recommend this property!
This was the perfect gathering place for our small family group!
The cleanliness and attention to detail of this guest house helped us feel comfortable right away. We made use of and thoroughly enjoyed the well stocked kitchen and lovely patio with BBQ--cooking and enjoying nice, relaxing meals outside was so lovely! Barb and Butch made themselves available to us, although everything was accounted for and we had no problems at all with our stay. The location was perfect for us, as it is easily accessible to the cities of Madison and Sun Prairie, but set just far enough out to keep you feeling relaxed when you're at 'home'. We highly recommend!
Absolutely the best place to stay. Home away from home!
We stayed at Butch and Barb’s place while my daughter attended training in Madison. The place was awesome! No place is cleaner, not even my own home! Every detail is thought of to make this place special. I highly recommend! Thanks for the great stay! Go Badgers!
