The brick and stone Sardeson building was built in the commercial vernacular as an addition to the Globe Hotel in 1877. The building has undergone extensive renovations since 2016 when Mineral Point potter and stonemason Roland Sardeson bequeathed the building to Shake Rag Alley Center for the Arts for use as lodging rooms, a pottery studio, and a gallery space. The second-floor studio apartment lovingly decorated and dedicated as Roland’s Loft in May 2018 features modern amenities and historical touches befitting Roland’s unique spirit. The creative community of Mineral Point awaits right outside your door, which is just a five-minute walk from the Shake Rag Alley campus.

The art-filled kitchen area features a fridge, microwave, coffeemaker, electric hot plate, an antique drop-leaf table and four chairs, and an old-fashioned country sink with a hand-painted backsplash by beloved Mineral Point potter, Bruce Howdle. With leaf-filtered light streaming in the tall, deep windows, you’ll find being in this unusual room a pleasure.

An array of multi-colored 1930s windows fills one wall of the bedroom, a pleasant view from the comfortable queen bed. A small iron tabl and chairs nearby are just right for morning coffee. And there’s a handy washer/dryer in the hall. The bathroom features an antique corner sink and mirror made from an old iron scale. Between the old claw-food tub and the modern shower is a remarkable wall of masonry “finds,” including fossils, arrowheads, unusual bricks and stone, even lead from the old Mineral Point mines, all collected and mortared into place by the mason whose stone retaining walls enliven the gardens outside.
