2 Bedroom, 1 & 1/2 Bath year round house in the scenic and classic New England town of Madison, CT on Long Island Sound. A 550 foot walk to private LI Sound Beach as shown in Photos. House is also located on the Western edge of Hammonasset Beach State Park. Our house, at 7 Pent Road, is on a very private, quiet, dead end lane, in a family neighborhood just off Webster Point Road. Madison is in the heart of the Connecticut 'Gold Coast', a series of small sea shore New England towns where Boating, Beaches, Swimming, and Restaurants are all in abundance. Day trips to Providence Rhode Island, Old Essex CT, Yale/New Haven and Mystic Aquarium are among the local venues.
Directions To House: Directions to the house are:
Take I-95 to exit 62 (Hammonasset State park). Turn south towards Hammonasset Park, go about 1.2 miles to end which intersects with Rt 1 (Entrance to Hammonasset Park is straight ahead). Turn Right (West) onto Rt 1, go 0.6 miles and turn left (your first left on Rt 1) onto Liberty Street, and then immediately left again onto Webster Point Road. Go .3 miles and the road forks, bear left onto Pent Road, our house is 7 Pent Road, it is Blue, and on the left. It's just past the start of Pent Road.
To get to the Town of Madison; go back to Liberty Street, turn left; follow it out to the light where it merges with Rt 1. Follow Rt 1 (West) about 1 mile and you will go right into Madison which is very quaint - typically New England town (there is a Starbucks at the end of town on the right).
The location is perfect! Beach right down the street and the bike path to Hammonessett Beach is wonderful. We had our morning coffee out on the front porch listening to the birds Quiet neighborhood and lots to do in Madison. We will be back next summer. Gina & Les
We had a wonderful stay. The kitchen has a good array of pots and pans for a wide variety of cooking and grilling styles. Comfortable open living room/dining room with ample seating. There are enough basic channels, and disney, to get by on rain days or at night. We didnt use the porch too much due to the humidity because the multiple window a/c units kept the house temperate. The master bedroom is ample and comfortable, the second bedroom was tight but not squished 2 people and gear are fine on a soft bed. The bathrooms are very functional and the water pressure is fine. Its a short walk to the sandy beach for swimming and wonderful sunsets. Everything from groceries (stop and shop) to wine and spirits to a fresh fish market to a bait shop are all within a 5 minute drive; a Walmart isnt too far down the road for any other packing omissions. A few town parks are great for little ones and close by too. Outlet shopping and movie theaters are nearby for a beach break or bad weather day. Working laundry made it easy to pack light and a clothes line let the suits dry for the next day. We are already thinking about next years visit
My friend and I enjoyed a very quiet comfortable week staying at this house. We had everything we needed and a wonderful beach very close by. Thank you Gene! I would consider booking here again.
My sister lives in Minnesota and really wanted a beach vacation. This cute little house is what she found through HomeAway. It was absolutely what we were looking for - Perfect. Tthere are so many things to do in the area. We spent a good amount of time at the semi-private beach. It appears to be a neighborhood beach. We watched the natives ride the tides on the adjacent creek when the tides went in and out. It was really pretty funny how they created their own natural water park. We ate at many of the local seafood places. We cooked a great steak on the grill out in the back yard. And there is also a local Kayaking company for the adventurous. Nearby you could take the Thimble Island Boat Tour out of Stony Creek in Branford - 15 minutes away. And then there is the Greenway Trail you can walk to Hammonasset State Beach right down at the end of the road. It was a wonderful time. I would definitely recommend this cottage.
This property is in an amazing LOCATION LOCATION LOCATION... the beach is a 3 minute walk, yes, wonderful, but, the neighborhood and the people are so friendly and unassuming - they are open, welcoming and helpful. The house is in a quiet, low traffic, family friendly area secluded and private. It is also just a 5 minute drive to the lovely relaxed "you are at the beach" town center of Madison, CT --- easy grocery shopping, all ranges of restaurants to the most casual to extra special formal!
The house was completely outfitted with all necessities and conveniences and your hosts, Gene and Susan, most helpful, accommodating and sincere in their wish for their beach cottage to be a comfortable "home away from home"! It is a place to relax, enjoy the outdoor shower, cook or grill, walk, read, play games and enjoy spring-summer the way it should be! Thank you for a wonderful time!
In our last review of this home we mentioned the concern for mildew and the owners' attempts to correct it. We recently revisited the home and the Goodman's have gone and corrected the mildew problem we encountered. It was a problem with the basement washer which had a loose drain that spilled out onto the floor and water was allowed to puddle in the low spots. I guess other renters did not mind and did not contact the Goodman's so the basement remained damp and hence the mildew.
On my last trip in May we were delighted to see that the home was clean and the basement dry. Thank you for listening. You are great! You even have a new and very comfortable sofa in the living room. Now if there was only a TV upstairs for the sports nuts in the family to monopolize, the home would be ideal. Thank you Gene & Sue. You know we will be back.
