What Our Guests Have To Say


The Carriage House in Sanger House Gardens was perfect for our

weekend trip to Milwaukee. The  location on Brewer’s Hill puts you

right in middle of everything, and within walking distance to

some very cool places. The carriage house was clean and spacious,

with a comfortable bed and great amenities. Steve was very

responsive and easy to communicate with. We’ll definitely be back next

time we’re in town.

The carriage house is beautiful. My wife and I wanted a relaxing

weekend, and that’s exactly what we got. The space was clean and

homey. Steve was very helpful with ideas of how to get around.

And the location is close enough to everything that you can walk most

places. I hope to come back when the garden is in full bloom!

– Matt – March 2017

The locations was incredible! Blocks away from Brady St, Water St,

and the Lakefront Brewery. Our and the Lakefront Brewery. Our

hosts recommended BelAir Cantina along with a $10off coupon, and we

enjoyed a wonderful time and meal. We went in the winter and can’t

wait to return in the summer to see what we can tell will be gorgeous

gardens. The home is beautiful but still very accommodating for pets.

Easy to take our dog in and out. Make sure to register your vehicle with

with city of Milwaukee.

The charming garden house was the perfect spot for us to stay for

our long weekend in Milwaukee. We were able to easily walk to

fantastic restaurants, Lakefront Brewery, the Historic Third Ward,

and Veterans Park. Steve and Angela were great hosts. We learned

about the history of the home, neighborhood and even a little bit

about gardening. We would love to come back for another stay.

– Jim – April 2017

This is the coolest Airbnb we’ve ever had the pleasure to be guests of.

It’s a secluded carriage house in a botanical garden right in the middle

of a wonderful neighborhood. Steve was extremely pleasant and helpful.

You know how you meet good people and you just know it instantly?

That’s Steve. We easily walked to Lakefront Brewery, Wolski’s, Water

Street, and Brady Street in ten minutes on a safe and pretty walk…..

And if I have my preference, I’ll stay at Sanger House Gardens

every time for the rest of my life. If you’re still reading, here’s an

endnote. My girlfriend and I got engaged in the garden. That’s how

sweet this place is. Thanks for reading!

– Walt – April 2017

Steve’s cottage was excellent! I was in town for business and stayed

there instead of a hotel where my meetings were (and took a $7 uber

back and forth). The space was super clean, comfortable, secluded,

and quiet. Steve himself was very easy to communicate with and was

flexible with my check-in time. We chatted for a bit and it was very

nice to have my first trip to Milwaukee begin with such warm

hospitality. I would love to stay there again on any future visits.

Highly recommended. Thanks!
