Lovers of the beach and sun, we enjoy sharing with our guests the sounds of waves crashing on the beach at night and seagulls calling in the morning. As two educators, we enjoy our summers in this lovely town with our children.
Madison offers easy access to the major east coast cities. The proximity to the ocean and a private beach combine tranquility with a cosmopolitan flair.
A typical summer morning has you strolling the short walk to the beach to enjoy your coffee while you check on the tides. Returning to the cottage, breakfast on the patio precedes a shopping excursion to Madison, with stops at the antique shops, the bookstore, the town library and the various boutiques. Lunch overlooking the water prepares you for an afternoon of golf and tennis or simply sitting on the beach while reading your favorite book.
