Sunny 1-bedroom apartment in historic home on the Isthmus

Madison, Wisconsin, United States
Rates from USD $2000 | Monthly

Apartment or Condo | Entire Home
Available Dates:
From August 15, 2025


NOTE: Currently booked through August 2025. Available from August 15 2025 through May 15 2026. Welcome to our historic home in Marquette. Built in 1906, our home is filled with original details, tall ceilings, and stunning hardwood floors. This three-floor flat is owned and occupied by two educator sisters. We’re renting our first floor flat — typically owner occupied by two writers / university faculty -- which has beautifully tall windows, making it a very bright home. The first floor flat has a private entrance on the cozy front porch. This is a one-bedroom apartment and serves as our own sanctuary for writing and relaxing during the summer months. It includes a nicely sized living and dining room, one-bedroom with a queen-size bed, a full kitchen, full-bath, and a separate in-unit laundry room. You’ll have access to street parking (very easy, typically on the block, no permits necessary), and we’re a 10 minute drive or Uber from the Madison airport. The house is located within walking distance of the Capital and Atwood neighborhood, but just steps from several bus lines, Lake Monona and the beach, and Willy Street, where you’ll find restaurants, bakeries, bars, and the best coop in the country. No need for a car if you don't want one or are just visiting! We’re a quick bus ride or bike ride to campus (or a walk, which we used to do!). Madison is a bike and walk-friendly city. This is a perfect house for an individual or couple transitioning to Madison, a visiting faculty member in the city for one or two semesters, or writers and academics looking for an escape to write. Madison (and the Marquette neighborhood) is a special place in the summer and the winter, alike! About us: We're two professors at Penn State University. NOTE ON PICTURES: The apartment is currently occupied by a long-term tenant and will be newly furnished in Summer 2024, as we will now occupy the apartment part of each year. Pictures will be updated in July 2024. If you're unfamiliar with Madison: If you're unfamiliar with Marquette, here is a lovely example of how vibrant the neighborhood is: And a quick reference to bus lines: And a quick interactive map of bike routes (and B-cycle pickup/dropoff spots) in Madison:
