Great location! Beautiful historic/charm
This is a charming historic home with beautiful views of Lake Mendota and very close to many music venues, dining and fun little dive bars. Breakfast is a delicious good variety and the delightful sounds of jazz music mixed with old charm is a romantic getaway for anyone.

Very Good 8.0
Lovely architecture and a beautiful view!
The house is quite charming and in a beautiful spot, facing the lake. The owners graciously invited my son, who lives locally, to join me for breakfast in the morning there, and the breakfasts were yummy! The first floor has really nice spaces to sit and have breakfast and look out over the lake, as well as a comfortable large living room with a gas fireplace - a nice spot to visit or to read a book. The shower in my room was a tub with a shower curtain, so if you are a heavyset person or want some space, you probably wouldn't want the James Baldwin room. I also felt it was odd, as a woman travelling alone, to have a bedroom door that I couldn't secure with a bolt lock separate from the lock that opens from the hallway with a key - that might just be my need for security while sleeping, as the home and the neighborhood did feel safe. I would stay there again!
