“Cothren Cottage - the perfect get-away!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 July 2014

The Cothren Cottage is the perfect get-away for a couple, small family or, as we did, a gal's weekend away from the husbands. Two bedrooms, a living room and bath, it is charmingly decorated to be comfy but not fou-fou. It has a truly great shower, coffee-maker, microwave, fridge, wireless internet and TV. Cozy and peaceful, it was totally quiet for great sleeping.
The Cottage is walking distance from High Street, so we got our steps in for the day strolling up and down the hills, ogling the lovely homes and amazing gardens, shopping and eating in town. If you're interested in Am Player's Theatre, it's about 20 minutes away.
It really was the perfect get-away.
Lisa is a wonderful hostess, very knowledgeable about the area, friendly and warm. We'd go back in a heartbeat.

My wife Susan and I have stayed in the Cothren Cabin 2 or 3 times and in the upstairs High Street Suites this year. They are all delightful. The cabin is old, warm and sweet. We rented it in winter, right after New Years Eve and enjoyed sitting, reading and just being together. Yes it has a steep stairway. This is Mineral Point. It was built in the 1850s!

The owner Lisa is a lovely person, friendly and helpful but not the least bit intrusive. As a matter of fact, the first time we stayed in the Cabin, we never met her, but were welcomed with a nice note and a bottle of wine!

We have enjoyed our stays enough that we are booking the cabin, our son's family is booking the Cottage and our daughter's family the Washington Street house for a weekend in April.

I am perplexed that the Cothren House is not ranked number 1 in Mineral Point given that all 16 (now 17) ratings are 5 stars! My mother was from Mineral Point and I have spent a lot of time there. I have enjoyed staying other places, but the Cothren House options are the ones that I would recommend above all others.

We were in awe as we walked into the Cothren Cabin; staying there is a must have experience. The Cabin is rustic, yet clean and cozy, wonderful and full of charm with just enough updating for a very comfortable stay, (i.e. central heat and A/C, great shower), and appropriately furnished with a back-in-time feel. Located in a quiet area of town, our sleeping experience was nothing but restful.

The service is superb, without being intrusive.

Mineral Point and the surrounding area has enough culture and good food to enjoy several days there; the annual art tour was going on while we were there.

I stumbled upon this cabin while scouring Mineral Point for subject matter to paint. I almost couldn't believe my eyes when I saw this cabin. This is exactly what I had hope to find. I send a couple of photos to my son to show him my find. He researched it and found out that it was a lodging experience waiting to happen. My kids bought me a night there for my birthday !

It was so peaceful and a distinct feeling of remoteness. The owner were very gracious and pointed out that they were available for anything that you might need but respected the guests privacy.

It was thrilling to spend time there. I want to go back again, especially in the winter some time.

The cabin was very clean and modern within the realm of not being apparent or overwhelming to the character of the cabin.

Very good experience and looking forward to returning.

Room Tip: This being a stand alone building is so much better than a suite or room in a larger building. My...

A stay at this quaint, cozy cabin is a very unique experience. It's nicely furnished and has a bedroom loft. There's small bathroom and a very good shower. Settling down at night with a fire, wine and Wisconsin cheese was wonderful. The cabin is located next to the Cothren House and backs up to an open area. We enjoyed a walk around the neighborhood and nearby cemetery. Downtown is not far away where there is a restaurant with very authentic Japanese cuisine. We also had a good meal at the brew pub. The lighting could have been a little brighter for reading and having some tumblers for drinking would have been nice too.

Thanks for the nice review and for the input. I just changed the lightbulbs to a higher wattage so they'll be better for reading. And, I will add some tumblers for beverages. I appreciate your feedback! ~ Lisa

My husband and I stayed in Cothren Cabin for a much-needed weekend away. It was absolutely perfect! I am a history fanatic, my husband loves antiques, and we both love Wisconsin so the cabin in Mineral Point was the perfect setting for a relaxing getaway. It was clean and cozy and the location was great - it was just a short drive downtown for dinner. We recommend Cothren Cabin highly and cannot wait to return.

Room Tip: Be careful on the stairs at night!

We just returned from a "girls" weekend in Mineral Point and stayed in the Cothren Cottage for the weekend.We all loved it, the cottage is cozy & thoughtfully appointed. The beds are wonderful and the living room is very comfortable. The cottage is walking distance to town and really a wondderful little place. I would highly recommend it!
