Marit's Home was a beautiful place to stay! Its located between nature just close to city amenities. It was the perfect place to unwind for a few days, we had a amazing time. The home is the perfect size for a family of 10! We're definitely looking forward to staying here again.

This place is awesome for a large group! We had 13 total and there was space for all of us to sleep! It's a quick 20 minute drive to downtown (we were heading to the Allianz Energy Centre), and there is also 10 minute access to major retail shops. The house itself is located on a beautiful property, and is well equipped with everything you need for a comfortable stay. Would recommend this house to anyone looking for a quiet getaway, with access to all that Madison has to offer!

Beautiful spot with a lot to explore. Wonderful location close to Madison, but still feels like a retreat. Had everything we needed for a nice, relaxing weekend.

I booked Marit's place to host my wedding party and I couldn't have picked a better spot! The house was big enough to sleep all 10 of us, the location was great in relation to the wedding venue and the house had everything we needed (multiple bathrooms, cooking utensils, etc). This spot is great for family parties/weddings/ big events. Loved me stay!

Thanks Kara! For clarification to potential guests: events are not allowed at the house or on the property (no weddings, for example). A family gathering of max ten people is fine though. :)

The place has plenty of space to sleep and feed people, though there are only a couple of bathrooms (we had 13 people at one point and it was limited, but worked well). There is a shower for upstairs (if you're taller than 5'-10", you will have to bend over a little while showering) and downstairs in the basement (more spacious, but a little more open). The house was very comfortable and had plenty of lighting. It is very close (walking distance) to a fantastic restaurant and a five min drive to a smaller Piggly Wiggly grocery store. The property is gorgeous and has plenty of amenities. It had extra blankets & pillows as well as a blow-up air mattress. There was a smell coming from the basement, but if we kept a couple doors closed, you couldn't smell it in the rest of the house.

You're welcome! Thank you for being mindful of the septic system with your large group. It is a 100 year old house! The basement smell is an "old house" smell. :) It is still the old stone and mortar basement. See you next time!

This is a lovely farmette in Cross Plains, Wisconsin. Marit generously accommodated both my dogs and a last-minute request for an extra night rental. This is a basic older farmhouse, so nothing fancy, but all clean, spacious, and nice. It served my purpose, which was to get away for a quiet work space after driving my kids to college.

Rustic Farmette with plenty of room for a group. Went with another family for a two night trip from Chicago and used Marit's place as home base for a trip to the Dell's which is only an hour away and an easy scenic drive.
