The space
We recently purchased our forever home and we want to share it with you.

The current pictures are from the wonderful job the previous owner did with their design, we will be updating our pictures when our interior design is complete.

We are experienced hosts from past homes.

This home oozes luxury from the moment you and your family/friends/associates walk in.

The first thing you’ll notice are the 10 foot southern facing windows that will brighten even the darkest of winter days.

Our custom, fully-equipped, chef’s kitchen will take your breath away, but more importantly allow your group to make any meal you want from frozen pizzas to gourmet meals.

Don’t want to cook? Ask about our chef.

Feel like grilling or cooking outside instead? Our outdoor kitchen has a large 6 burner grill, two separate stove-top burners, and granite countertops.

If it’s nice weather, eat outside on the outdoor patio table, bar, or couch. Feeling a little chilly? Fire up the gas outdoor fire place. (Weather dependent)

The 10 person circular table in the dining room ensures that quality conversations can be heard and plenty more eating space on the marble island kitchen countertops.

Two dishwashers make even the largest group meal clean up a breeze leaving more time to create additional fun memories.

After all that food you might be needing to visit the bathroom. Don’t you worry, we have bidets in most bathrooms to make sure your tush gets a proper cleaning. Seriously try them... they are amazing... we recommend highest water pressure :)

Didn’t quite make it to the bathroom in time?

No worries, we have two large laundry rooms on the first floor and basement to take care of that. :)

Ready to have a nice conversation or to read your favorite book? Then turn on the beautiful gas fireplace, grab a cup of tea and enjoy.

Want to get away a bit more and read?

We have another special reading “nook” at the top of the stairs overlooking the northern sky.

On the first floor you will find an ensuite bedroom allowing for those who struggle with stairs a safe and comfortable place to sleep.

The first floor also offers an all purpose kids room that can turn into an extra bedroom with a queen pull out couch.
Not able to leave work at home?

Well that’s a bummer but at least you can go into our private office to get some work done free of distractions.

Our 400mb high speed internet reaches the entire home through an advanced WiFi booster web.

The office also turns into another bedroom with a queen pull out couch if your work goes into the wee hours of the morning.

Heading upstairs we have three more bedrooms including the master’s suite.

The master bathroom is one of the “wow-points” of the house with nearly floor to ceiling marble floor and walls. Relax in the effervescent soaking tub and enjoy the 8 foot glass shower that can fit at least 6 people.

All 5 bedrooms have their OWN ATTACHED PRIVATE granite and marble bathrooms.

With over 6,500 square feet of indoor/outdoor living space it will never seem crowded.

Ready for some friendly competition?

Head downstairs to the basement where ping pong, foosball, darts, and over 115 board games are waiting to be played.

Or maybe you are looking for something more low key… Netflix and chill anyone?

You will love our state-of-the-art home theater system with 7 fully reclining chairs and space for many more. The 7 speakers and special lighting will make you think you are at the movie theater.

Fire up the authentic popcorn machine and have the theater really smelling like a movie theater. Experiment with some weird popcorn toppings that we include in the popcorn bar.

This home has 7 TVs all hooked up to a central entrainment system allowing for large groups to be each enjoying their favorite shows which we provide on our Netflix, Amazon Prime, and YouTube TV accounts.

The 75 inch new TV in the basement is specifically designed for video games or sports with a 120H processor and comes with 3 HDMI cables for video games.

With over $40,000 worth of audio and video systems in this home you can be assured you won’t be lacking for video and music entertainment.

With all the delicious food and chilling you might be ready to get a little sweat on and burn some calories.

We own a gym in town so you can be assured that we have all the right equipment to get a great workout from home. You can even read Dustin’s book on fitness :)

Workout room includes: 5-35 Lb weights, TRX, treadmill, kettlebell, bosu, bench/steps, foam rollers, and stability ball.

Ready for an evening treat after that invigorating workout?

Jump into our new 5-7 person hot tub and let the warm water relax your body and mind. We are away from the city and light pollution, so if it’s dark, gaze up and find the Milky Way.

Speaking of chocolate...

After soaking in the hot tub, grab some of our firewood and smore kit we provide and make yourself an outdoor fire to roast your marshmallows hot enough to let the chocolate ooze from your graham.

Ready to get some sleep? We have high quality memory foam mattresses for each bed and different types of pillows to satisfy your specific pillow preference.

Our luxury linens are purchased directly from the same place the Madison Concourse Hotel uses.

We have small kids so you can be sure that this is family friendly. The home has custom baby gates (that we can remove for non toddler groups), a crib, a pack and play, high chairs, changing tables, diaper genies, and bins full of toys, books, and games in the kids play room.

Chances are you didn’t just come to Madison to stay in our home.

You have places to go and people to see.

We are conveniently located close to everything.
-5 minutes from Epic, Madison, University Ridge Golf Course, and Middleton
-15 minutes from Alliant Energy, UW Campus, State Capital, Kohl Center, Camp Randall, Ironman, CrossFit, World Dairy Expo, and Tyrol Ski Area
-25 minutes from Dane County Airport
-Head 5 minutes west and you will be greeted with endless farms and rolling hills

We are also less than 7 min from:
-Target
-Costco
-Walmart
-4 major grocery stores

First time to the Madison area?

Our detailed “locals guide” will show you the best restaurants, coolest attractions, and hidden gems that only those who live here know about.

COVID CLEANING UPDATE: Cleanliness is always a priority for us, but during these times it becomes even more important. Our professional cleaning crew spends 9-12 man hours sanitizing, scrubbing, and dusting the entire home.

Since the home is new, it has a state of the art, high air flow ventilation system that exchanges large amounts of outside air and heats/cools it. In addition to that, we open up our massive windows (even in the winter) to give a major blast of fresh air.

-Dustin and Tessa

Whatever your reason for booking, our “Memory Maker” home we hope it will be a place you want to come back to time and time again.

If you have special requests don’t hesitate to message us and ask. Thanks again for taking the time to look and God bless you!

Country living but so close to the city.

We live in a small quiet neighborhood with massive 2 acre lots.

A five minute walk will get you into beautiful trails overlooking the vast cornfields and rolling hills.

Hi! We are the Maher family: Tessa, Dustin, Bo (2 years) and baby Maple (11 mo). We have called Madison our home for a couple decades and can’t see ourselves living anywhere else. Health and fitness are a big part of our lives. Combined over the past 4 years we have completed over 50 triathlons including 7 Ironmans and a handful of marathons. We own a gym in Madison and love helping people become healthier. We love to travel the world, and have used AirBNB extensively, and have now decided to create amazing experiences for our guests like we have had throughout our years of travel. We hope you consider a stay with us and fall in love with Madison as we have! Our home is kept meticulously clean by professional cleaners. While we are new to hosting on AirBnB, we are experience hosts. Please don't hesitate to reach out with any questions you may have. Cheers!
