Great Place for a Family Getaway

Great Vacation Rental
5 of us stayed at the Yellow Dog Retreat for a wine weekend. House is very clean, with all the amenities you could want. The touches Jeremy and Chelsea added to the house made it cozy and cute! We could tell a lot of work and thought was put into everything. The property itself is large and pretty. The fire area is a nice added touch. Jeremy was quick to respond with any questions I had before our arrival and came to meet us along with his dogs Eddie and Bruce. Sooo cute! He made sure we had everything we needed . All 5 of us are looking forward to staying at the Yellow Dog Retreat again.

This Place is Fabulous!
Our stay was simply wonderful. The whole house is charming and the recent addition of the side deck (making an L shape with tables and sun shades was wonderful. The location is within 7miles of the cute town of Madison. We ate dinner at the Cornerstone Grill which brews it's own beer and serves local wine. Very good casual dining for a fair price. We were within 3 miles of 7 wineries. Geremy was kind enough to reccomend some and even let us know the times of entertainment! We enjoyed many nice bottles. The kitchen had every ammenity and we cooked most meals at the house. We used the gas grill and the fire pit out back...( bring your own logs). Geremy texted me after we arrived to see if we had any questions. He stopped by to meet us on Sunday morning as he was walking his dogs. The house is an old Sears home that was moved in the 1970-s. The beds were good, the bathrooms cleaned and well stocked, and we could not have asked for anything more.

Perfect Location for winery hopping!
Great experience at The Yellow Dog Retreat! We came to tour the wineries in the area and the location couldn’t have been better. Most of the wineries in the region are within a 10 minute drive of the house. The house was awesome! We spent a lot of time around the fire pit area in the evenings. The house was clean and had everything we needed. Jeremy was also always in close contact and quick to fix anything that came up. Great experience and our group hopes to return again sometime soon!

Bachelorette Party
This house was perfect for celebrating our bride to be! The house is cozy and spacious. The deck and yard are perfect for hanging out, playing games or having a fire. The location is so close to all of the wineries. This house is even better in person. We definitely look forward to staying here again soon!
