IN-TOWN, 2 BDROOM! TIDAL MARSH VIEWS, 10 MINUTE WALK TO BEACH!

Madison Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Apartment, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath (Sleeps 1-9)

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.

Languages spoken: English, French, German

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.

a hidden gem

A fantastic apartment. The photos do not do the apartment justice as it is large, bright and airy. Two fantastic large bedrooms, a dining area, living area and large kitchen diner which provided more than enough living area for me and my family. My 3 year old son loved the apartment, especially the train table. The apartment is within walking distance of Madison and all the local amenities. We will definitely be booking here when we return to Conn.
The only consideration is that there are quite a few steps up to the property, but this did not affect our stay.
Criss and Nick were great too, ensuring we had everything we needed and were around in case we needed anything
Owner's Response: Helen, thank you for your review. Glad you found our listing and enjoyed your stay here in Madison Connecticut! Please do not hesitate to contact me again when you are planning another trip to this area. My best, Criss

Personal apartment with a great view

This large 2 bedroom apartment was great for our family's pre Thanksgiving retreat. We enjoyed the full kitchen and newly remodeled bathroom. We also played board games and the Wii, which was great for our 11 year old son. A much more home feel than a hotel. Thanks Criss!
Owner's Response: So glad you enjoyed your get away! We are always here for another "week-end" vacation. Have a great Thanksgiving!

Lovely place, great host

I stayed for 9 nights and would come back again in a heartbeat. The apartment is very comfortable and has all the amenties described. There are a lot of steps to get to it, so it is not for people who have disabilities or cannot handle lots of stairs. She has a property in the lower level that is accessible so you might want to ask her about that. Criss was a great hostess and took very good care of me. I needed to have some guests come stay with me and she informed me that the chairs turn into beds in the living room. There is lots of room here for a 2 BR apt. The floors are lovely old wood and it is clean as a whistle. I highly recommend this property to anyone looking for a place on the coast of Connecticut. It isn't right on the water, but it isn't far to get there and it is within walking distance of all shops and restaurants in Madison.

Great place for a family get-away

  • Submitted: Nov 14, 2012

This is a wonderful place to go for a family get-away. It is located in a woodsy area just a few blocks from the town of Madison. Easy walk downtown for the requisite beach town coffee shop, ice cream place. It also had an independent bookstore, and movie theater. Not on the beach, but close walk. Very easy to get to sites nearby like the cliffwalk in Newport, Mystic, etc. Just a few miles from a great state park and a great place for seafood- Lennie and Joe's Fish Tale.
The accomodations were up to date, the kitchen and whole place was well stocked. The owners live down below, and are very helpful with info as to area restaurants, and shops, etc. They were very gracious in lending us beach umbrellas and chairs as we had flown to the East Coast for our vacation. Madison doesn't feel like a packed tourist place like Newport or Mystic. We loved going to the farmer's market for fresh veggies and fish for our stay.

Great Getaway

My family and I recently came back from spending the weekend in Madison. Criss and her husband, Nick, were extremely hospitable, kind and accomodating. The apartment was very clean and spacious, the description and pictures are exactly what you get. I usually don't write reviews, but what stood out the most from the weekend was how intuitive Criss and Nick were to all of our needs. The service was similar to a five star hotel (maybe even a little better) For example, we invited a couple friends over for a barbaque. Criss noticed that we needed more space and she brought over a table and a few chairs. Additionally, when one of our guests were arriving to spend the night with us, Nick was extremely kind and helpful with their bags. I would definitely stay here again!

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.
