The entryway and stairs going up to the bedroom. The living room, and the "massive columns*" between it and the dining room.

A quiet bedroom in a character-filled charming four-square. Incredibly convenient to everything a traveler to Spring Green might want.

The General Store, the library, pharmacy, and grocery store are all less than a block away.

American Players Theatre, Frank Lloyd Wright's Taliesin, The House on the Rock and local farm stands are all just minutes away.

The space

Perhaps it's not prudent to have an emotional relationship with a house, but I do so love this lovely old gem, and the more time I spend there, the more I'm reminded why.

She features gorgeous woodwork, pocket doors between the entryway and the living room, and character & soul that you won't find in modern houses.

The front porch is lovely to sit on and watch the passersby. We're on the main street in town, but it's such a quiet little town, that it makes for a wonderful place to sit back with a drink and relax in a quintessential Spring Green way.

Guest access

You'll have access to the bedroom and bathroom, which are both upstairs, as well as the living room, dining room, and kitchen on the main floor. The aforementioned front porch, as well, is yours to enjoy during your stay.

The 2nd bathroom, which is on the main floor, is currently out of commission.

Interaction with guests

As of now, you can expect to have the whole house to yourself, although my daughter and I may stop by if we're going to a show at APT. If we have plans to stay overnight, ourselves, on a night you're considering, I will let you know that before you book.

Additional bedrooms will hopefully become available soon, so that may affect future guests, but I will be try to be respectful of guest's preferences who already have reservations before those rooms are made available.

Other things to note

Central air, Wi-Fi and Cable TV have just been installed. I have found that the A/C doesn't cool the bedroom as much as I'd hoped, but I'm exploring solutions. There are fans available, as well.

The kitchen is in transition, which is to say that I'm adding a cabinet or two here and there. In the interest of supporting a worthy organization and also wanting to tread lightly on our planet, I'm trying to work around what I can find at Habitat for Humanity ReStore. The improvements are nothing substantial, and everything is completely functional. The improvements are very cosmetic.

We booked a room in Davin's house and everything was excellent. The inside has loads of character, is very clean and quite comfortable. The communication was excellent and everything went very smoothly. It's a block away from the center of Spring Green, which makes it a convenient walk to most things and a quick drive to APT.

House is cozy and comfortable, a very pleasant and convenient place to stay to go to American Players Theater and other Spring Green attractions. In-town location is convenient -- we could walk to shops and restaurants.

What a lovely place! It is immaculate, bright, yet homey. The house is perfectly located--drinks, food, entertainment all walkable. We attended one of the Sh-tty barn sessions and were just delighted to walk "home", rather than drive back to Madison!

A big roomy house near the center of Spring Green with stores and restaurants in walking distance and the American Players Theater and Taliesin a short drive away. Also some beautiful State Parks are nearby. The kitchen is stocked with drinks and basics(coffee/tea etc.)

Cute and quirky vintage house in a *perfect* location in downtown spring green. Davin was a fantastic host -sending all of the information we needed (from notes about the house to breakfast restaurant recommendations) in a pdf beforehand, and then (because he is psychic?) texting the wifi password again right after we checked in, in case we had not downloaded the pdf to our devices (indeed, we had not, and because cellphone coverage in spring green is spotty -this was super helpful). We would stay at his house again in a heartbeat!! Thanks

Centrally located and a great value. Host was very nice and was available to answer questions during the stay. If you are going to spend time in Spring Green, skip the motel. This is the place to stay!

I'm on staff at Overture Center for the Arts in Madison, WI, specializing in spreadsheets, welding, and making things roll better. I am also an I.A.T.S.E. stagehand, and an ETCP certified arena rigger. I started my theater career at APT, so it will always hold a special place …
