About Scott A. Meier

We have lived in this grand Milwaukee neighborhood for over twenty years and am so proud to call it my home. We have restored many unique architectural gems in Washington Heights. We have published stories and pictures in the Milwaukee Journal, Bungalow Magazine, and the local neighborhood newspaper, The Washington Highlighter.

Scott A. Meier purchased this apartment in 2012

Why Scott A. Meier chose Milwaukee

Over twenty years ago, we initially purchased the sister duplex next door and made

it our home for many years. When the sister duplex became available... it was a dream come true. The two properties where originally constructed for two sisters, at the turn of the century, when the neighborhood was first developed from pasture land.

Our neighborhood today advertises itself as, "In the City, Out of the Ordinary.

What makes this apartment unique

Please check out the Washington Heights Neighborhood Association in Milwaukee, Wisconsin website to get further neighborhood insight. You can read about special activities we have throughout the year, as well as, informative neighbor stories and happenings published in the Highlighter Magazine.

Climate Issues

  • 3 of 5

Overall, the furnishings are adequate; dining, kitchen and living room very comfortable. The bed linens and pillows on the beds were cheap and uncomfortable in the back room.

Apparently, the owner was out of town when we arrived. The temperature in the unit was 81 degrees, due to warm weather the previous day. Nobody bothered to open the place to air it out or install the window A/C's. I called the backup person, who tried to be helpful, but could not resolve cooling and heating issues during our time there. He sent over a service person to help, but the problems only became worse. The temperature plummeted 30 degrees and there was no way to turn on the heat, so we were all cold the first 2 nights. By the way, the thermostat is useless and needs to be replaced. It is old and not intuitive.

In short, the place is neat and clean appointed with common area comfort, but it was not prepared properly for our visit and cooling/heating issues were problematic during our entire stay. I never received an apology or compensation from the owner for our inconvenience; not that I asked either.

Nice place for family time

  • 5 of 5

The home is well maintained and the kitchen is well stocked. The neighborhood is also very nice. We were visiting our son who's attending college in Milwaukee and were able to have some nice family meals at the house.

Wonderful time

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for 2 weeks to celebrate Christmas with our children and grandchildren that live in the area. We were going to purchase some Christmas decorations when we arrived, but to our surprise Mark and Scott had it completely decorated for us! We had fantastic time filled with wonderful memories. Thank you Scott and Mark!

Great property. Great location. Would definitely recommend to anyone visiting Milwaukee.

  • 5 of 5

Scott and Mark were great hosts and great communicators. They have made this house very beautiful and comfortable. A very minor issue arose & we received a text and a phone call resolving it within seconds of sending them an email. No way they could have been more responsive (and Scott was in Europe at the time).

Elegant Lodgings in a Historic Neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

I rented both of Scott's elegantly furnished apartments in this house for myself and relatives attending a wedding in the Shorewood/Riverwest areas. The convenient location was only 15-20 minutes to Shorewood as well as downtown. Both apartments were very comfortable and well supplied for all of our needs, and definitely a treat! Beautifully decorated with antiques and pottery, the history of the house and neighborhood became talking points for my guests who were first-time visitors of Milwaukee. Scott was great to work with - I'd definitely rent from him again!
