This 2 bedroom, 1 bath year-round third floor flat is located in the scenic New England town of Madison, Connecticut on Long Island Sound. This 1000 square foot third floor guest home is part of a stately old summer house built in 1918. Master bedroom has own cable television and king bed with plenty of closet and bureau space. 2nd bedroom includes bunk bed with double lower and trundle bed if needed. Large living room with cable TV, full dining area, and full kitchen. Bathroom with shower. Sun on hardwood floors throughout. Deck next to tidal marsh great for bird watching or relaxing with a book. During summer months, ask about use of above ground pool as part of your experience.
This flat is centrally located, yet tucked away in a wooded enclave. It is within a 10 minute walk of local town beaches as well as the in-town independent theatre. A fine French Bistro can be found a block away, right behind the local Audubon Shop. Hammonasett State Park is only a mile up the road.
Madison is one of a series of small seashore towns where boating, beaches, swimming, and gorgeous water views keep visitors coming back year after year.
Day trips to Providence and Newport Rhode Island, Old Essex CT, Yale/New Haven and Mystic Seaport and Aquarium, as well as Lake Compounce (the oldest continuously operating amusement park in North America) are among the local venues for daytrips.
Madison is fortunate to have an independent theatre and one of America's finest independent book stores, RJ Julia. And of course there is a diverse selection of restaurants in Madison and surrounding towns. If you are bringing children, the town of Madison hosts a variety of summer camps (sailing, soccer, swimming etc.). Horseback riding camps for children and lessons for adults minutes away at fabulous Guilford Riding School. After a fun-filled day, visit Stone Temple Sanctuary for a relaxing massage. They are located just down the street from this conveniently located rental!
I have lived all around the world and am happy to be settling with my family by the seashore in New England. A beautiful place to live or vacation.

Christine Frick purchased this apartment in 2010
Grew up spending the summers in Madison with my grandmother. Now that I own a family residence with a third floor guest home attached here in Madison, I would like others to have the opportunity to build New England seashore memories. Whether in the autumn, winter, spring, or summer, Madison is beautiful any season.
This is a delightful place to base exploring the CT shore and surrounding small towns. The apartment was wonderful. Criss has thought of everything - beach towels (bigger than my own bathroom towels!), a fully equipped kitchen, comfortable beds, a lovely bathroom, a comfy living room. The wood floors are exquisite and have been lovingly restored. It is the kind of place I wish I owned as my own home - that's how at home we were! Criss checked on us to make sure that we find the house, met and welcomed us, and provided lots of good local information. The photos are accurate but the real thing is better! My only regret is we stayed for a short two nights! Thank you so much, Criss, and family!
This was a adorable apt but had a lot of steps. But for the space and the price well worth it! We had a wonderful time in Connecticut. Apt close to the town, beach and our relatives. Thanks Criss for being available when needed and taking some time to chat with us before we left. We had a wonderful stay and look forward to renting from you again next summer.
Hopefully daughter will have more art work to show you til then.
Christine et Nick sont des hôtes exceptionnels, ils comblent et prévoient tous vos besoins. L'appartement est grand, très propre et climatisé. Dans la cour arrière vous apprécierez comme nous le patio '' Deck '', très agréable pour prendre un p'tit 5 à 7 et surtout pour admirer les oiseaux en grandes variétés (cardinaux, oiseaux mouches et autres).
La municipalité de Madison est très accueillante, les gens sont gentils. Cette municipalité est très active, concerts extérieurs le samedi.
Les plages sont belles, avec quelques vagues, mes enfants de 10 et 13 ans ont très appréciés. Les petites rues près de la plage sont belles à visiter, il y a de belles maisons typiquement américaines.
À 20 minutes de Madison, il y a la municipalité de New Haven, vous pouvez prendre le train pour New-York, centre-ville, station Grand terminal. La durée de 2 hres passe très vite dans ce train climatisé. Le coût pour 4 personnes 100$ aller-retour, pour les moins de 12 ans, le coût est de 2$ . En auto, il faut prévoir le même temps pour ce rendre.
Pour ceux qui aiment les '' Outlet '' il y en a deux très gros un à Clinton (Premium Outlet) et l'autre à Westbrook (Tanger Outlet), à une sortie du premier sur la 95. Les deux sont à 15 minutes de la résidence.
En sommes, nous avons vraiment apprécié cet endroit, je vous la recommande fortement, pour ceux qui aiment la tranquillité, les plages et le magasinage....
Bonnes vacances...chanceux !!!
This is a great apartment in a great town, close to shops but still within reasonable walking or biking distance from the beach. The apartment is very spacious and has all the amenities. The only caveat is that it does require walking several steps. However, once you get there you are on top of the world.
Our weeks visit was really fun and relaxing at the same time. The owners are helpful and accommodating. Whatever was needed they provided. We walked every night into town for our daily "Smiley" frozen yogurt treat, easy walk. You are 10 minutes from I-95 and we often choose Rt 1 (Boston Post Rd.) just to enjoy the towns. Found a super place to eat, very large portions and fair price for yummy food! Leon's in Westbrook, just 10-15mins east on Rt. 1. The apartment was very spacious and loved the wood floors, loved the accent rugs even more. Thank you for all the small touches: washer/dryer w/ soap too, plenty of towels...etc. Super stay, will look forward to staying again.
Our trip to Madison Ct. was wonderful and part of that was possible because of the delightful apartment that housed our family. The apartment was Clean, Roomy, Colorful, Comfortable, Warm, Cozy and Complete with everything we needed and then some, including coffee. We would definitely stay there many times and recommend this property for those looking for shelter in Madison.
This is a perfect rental for weekend retreats, get togethers, get aways, and weeklong/month vacations! 10 minute walk to Madison's independent theater, fine dining, Long Island Sound beaches, Madison village shopping, and the library.
This flat is on the main street through the town of Madison, yet it is on a two acre wooded property that tucks it away into privacy. Bird watch from your deck that overlooks the tidal marsh.There is an above ground pool that is available to use on request. Lawn games are also at your disposal.
Relax with a book on your deck overlooking the tidal marsh, or stroll the beach or the sidewalks in town. There is something for everyone in your group to enjoy.
