The SpaceThe home has 2 bedrooms (1 king, 1 full) upstairs, plus 2 rooms with sofa beds on the main level, 2 full baths, a fully-equipped kitchen, dining room, W/D, 2 gas fireplaces (1 in master bedroom), 3 flat-screen TVs with Netflix & Pandora (plus basic cable in living room), WiFi, wrap-around front porch with swing & rocking chairs, deck with outdoor furniture, and gas grill.

If you're in the area for an event in Louisville (e.g, the Derby!) or Cincinnati, you'll be within an hour's drive and will have a relaxing home to return to each evening. Guest AccessGuests will have access to the entire house and yard for the duration of their stay. Interaction with GuestsA member of my family will only be there to deliver the key, and to answer any questions guests may have. We'll provide a list of personal recommendation regarding places to visit; otherwise, we won't bother you! The NeighborhoodWelcome to the heart of beautiful historic Madison, IN, a river town that hosts many art and musical festivals throughout the year. Madison also has several award-winning wineries and a wide range of unique shops and restaurants to try. Our house is located on West Main St., within easy walking distance of several of these restaurants and shops. Everything else downtown offers is within about 8-9 blocks. There are paths for hiking or biking nearby, including along the river. Clifty Falls State Park is a natural wonder year-round, and touring some of the gorgeous historic homes (including the J.F.D. Lanier Mansion) is not to be missed. Check online for info. on festivals and special events. Getting AroundMadison is about an hour's drive from Cincinnati or Louisville, and about 2 hrs. from Indianapolis. One of the great things about the location is that it's in the heart of downtown (toward the west end), within walking distance of many of the shops and restaurants. When the weather's nice, many guests enjoy walking to the river and all around the downtown area. If you'd rather drive once you're in town (or if you'd like a place to stash the treasures you find to purchase!), there's plenty of free parking on any street.
