Annie's is a garden bed and breakfast. True to it's name, it is
virtually surrounded by perennials, herbs, native flowers and framed by
trees. There is an inviting gazebo, flagstone terrace and a small lily
pond complete with goldfish and frogs. The rustic, Craftsman-style house
is cedar and glass, owner-designed in the 1960s and tucked in a quiet
circle next to one of Madison's largest waterfront parks, close to the
big lake, Mendota. Quiet and ethereal, you would never guess it's close
proximity to the pleasures of urban Madison and the University, a very
short drive away. Enter . . . and enjoy Madison's most unusual lodgings,
where YOU ALONE will be guests for a visit of unsurpassed intimacy and
peace. Extraordinary . . .
the eye of an artist, Annie has filled the many rooms with fascinating
paintings, sculpture, stained glass and collections reflecting a deep
appreciation of the natural world. The light-filled pine library is
fairly bursting with books and comfortable furniture. A soaring stone
fireplace with mesmerizing Roman horses on it's face, a superb stereo
system with hundreds of CDs from which to choose, and lastly, two sleepy
Siamese cats complete the scene.
long balcony overlooks the two-story high dining room, large oil
paintings and gorgeous chandelier. It ends with the door to the bedroom
wing, featuring a master bedroom with a mahogany queen-size bed, a
smaller room to be used as a bedroom or a dressing room with a double
bed and a full bath.
the lower level there is a double Jacuzzi, surrounded by plants,
mirrors, romantic lighting and it's own music system. Also on this level
is a cozy surround-sound HD-TV theater (whose speakers can shake the
house!). Hundreds of movies and plenty of popcorn await your pleasure,
as well as a microwave and tableware for "dinner at the movies" via take
out or delivery from one of Madison's great restaurants.
views from all the windows are glorious and seasonally changing. A
two-mile jogging/bike path encircles the park, linking up with other
avenues for a wide choice of hiking and biking, all scenic. There are
miles of mowed nature trails threading the park to take you down to the
lake, woods and marsh to catch glimpses of deer, fox and countless
birds. Come . . . make yourself at home and meet Annie, Larry and the
catties, Sparkler and Firecracker. . . . Welcome!
