We are very close to the interstate and an easy drive from the Madison airport. East side of Madison is just a short drive (10 - 15 min depending on location). Some renters have stayed with us that were going to the University, but for others it was a little far. It's about 30-45 min drive to the University depending on traffic and time of the day. There is no bus stop near us. There are some routes you can take which help with the drive. If you have any questions please just ask. Thank you!
