About Nancy Hylbert
Raised in Wisconsin, my roots are deep here. My children and grandchildren all live close by. ; ) I enjoy gardening, dancing, restoring prairies and maintaining oak woodlands. When I am not at the cottage, I am with my family in the Madison area or taking care of my guests at my Bed & Breakfast in Verona: Springdale Inn It gives me great joy to share the magic of our Spring Green property with you!
Nancy Hylbert purchased this Cottage in 1992
Why Nancy Hylbert chose
It was love at first sight when I first set foot on the farm in Spring Green in 1992. After 25 years of ownership, our cottage needed some fixing up, so I spent the winter of 2015-2016 re-finishing and decorating. I hope you enjoy the results. This cottage was originally built in the 1860's, as a simple wood frame farm house. It still sits on its original fieldstone foundation, and all of its main walls are original. The first structure on this farm was a log cabin that sat just below where the pond dam now stands.
What makes this Cottage unique
The valley views from the cottage are so soothing! Our sweet secluded fish pond is a joy to anglers of all ages and abilities! Our deck is a perfect spot for stargazing, and you will find our night sky to be amazing! We have a fire ring in our back yard, and provide firewood for your use. We are close to Spring Green, the Wisconsin River, American Players Theatre, and Frank Lloyd Wright's Taliesen. If you would like to rent a kayak, canoe, or tube, please contact Wisconsin Riverside Resort soon, because they actually sell out for many summer weekends. They are 10 minutes from our cottage, in Spring Green, at 608-588-2826. Like to bicycle? We are in the midst of some of the best biking country anywhere! Bike right out our driveway and take a hilly loop to Percussion Rock Road, with a stop at the amazing Global View along the way!

This is on beautiful land. The host was really clear with us about the sleeping arrangements for 8. We were all all adult group and the arrangements for 8 are probably most comfortable for a party with children. We lived our stay.
Beautiful place in a beautiful setting!
This place is amazing!! The house is very nice, spacious and well appointed. It was very clean. Communication was great!! The location is gorgeous. And, it was so convenient to Spring Green and American Players Theatre. I would highly recommend!!
Much more than just a house, it is a great property.
Great space, meadow, woods, beauty!
Beautiful home and acreage. So relaxing.
This home is just what our family was looking for. Beautifully located in the country on a huge acreage. Loved the walking path to the pond, the wild flowers, and wild life. It was so peaceful and with no cable TV it forced us to play games and just enjoy each others company. Thank you for allowing us to share your lovely home.
Lovely, modern and secluded home.
We stayed in July of 2018 and had a lovely time. The house is modern, well kept, clean and well provisioned. It's not one of those places with four drinking glasses and three plates - there were plenty of towels, toiletries and a truly stocked kitchen. We got lucky and arrived just after some new mattresses were installed and we were very comfortable. The owner also has a B&B and she knows how to run things and was very welcoming and helpful. We enjoyed the games in the house and morning coffee on the deck. The mobile service was truly spotty - but it's that way in the whole area - and it was nice to be disconnected for a weekend. It's out in the country but it's not far from town and local attractions - only a few minutes from Taliesin and House on the Rock. We ate at Freddy Valentines Public House in Spring Green and it was fantastic. Lots of variety and vegetarian options too. Overall an excellent stay and we would certainly go back again and recommend it to others.
Wonderful place to have a retreat!
We enjoyed our stay in this place very much. We liked the space and the facilities there. It is a wonderful place for friends gathering and for a weekend retreat.
Enjoy the peaceful surroundings of our 278 acres, and take in all that the Spring Green area has to offer! American Players Theatre, The House on The Rock, Taliesin, premier golfing, the artsy town of Spring Green, and the Wisconsin River are all within 10 minutes by car. Enjoy some of the best bicycling country anywhere! Excellent biking routes right out our front door!
