Three Pup, Two Bedroom Bungalow in Walkable Madison, Wisconsin
My husband and I love to travel and often go home to North Carolina and Florida to see family and friends. Andrew is a PhD candidate at the University of Wisconsin Madison and I am an online instructor for high school social studies students. Our schedules are flexible and we get wanderlust almost monthly. We love to meet new people, see live music, run long distance and play on the water.
Our Home & Location
Our bungalow is situated between Lake Mendota and Lake Minona, both about a mile away, on the Northeast side of Madison. The WWII era neighborhood is becoming popular lately, with people investing in home improvements. The neighborhood is walkable with access to several trails, bus lines and bars and restaurants. Our house has three bedrooms (two beds) and two bathrooms, with an updated kitchen and partially finished basement with a full bathroom and laundry room. The master bedroom is on the second story loft space above the dining area. We have several neighbors who keep to themselves, an elderly couple on one side and a nice family with three children on the other side. The backyard is fenced in with a deck to spend your morning drinking coffee and listening to the birds chirp. The house has central heat and air and doesn't use much of either in the summer, as the temps are ideal. The buslines pick up 2-6 blocks from the house and can take you anywhere in Madison for $2. Less than 15 minutes to the trendy Atwood and Willy Street neighborhoods and 20 minutes to downtown State Street and the Capitol building. Madison is a super fun city! People find lots to do outdoors no matter what the weather is like. The city flows with beer, cheese and outdoor activities, especially on the lakes in the summer.
Responsibilities & Pets
Our dogs will need to be fed twice a day, once in the morning and once in the evening. They also need to be let out in the backyard every 8 hours, at least. To keep our neighbors happy, we would like you to pick up after the dogs, at least weekly, but more frequently if possible. The grass doesn't grow very fast, but in the summer time may need to be mowed. We have a light, electric lawn mower that can be used for longer stays.
