Birdsong is a handicap accessible apartment, which is attached to the west side of our house with beautiful views of the winter sunsets. We have 2 acres of land with lush gardens and a fall fall and lily pond. The cathedral ceiling apartment, with plenty of natural light, has an open floor plan of a living room, dining area and kitchen with a separate bedroom. The bedroom has a queen size bed with California closets, while the bathroom has a handicap accessible shower and sink. In the kitchen you will find everything you will need to create your own favorite meals. Have breakfast, lunch or dinner on the terrace in this tranquil setting, while listening to the waterfall of the pond. A gas grill is available for use.
The town of Madison, which is located on Long Island Sound, is a perfect destination for relaxing an exploring. Centrally located - New York City is 2 hours away while Boston is 2 ½ and New Haven twenty minutes. The train from the downtown station will connect you with all of these destinations, but why leave the quaint town of Madison. Stroll through the town center and you will find an Arts Cinema, the renowned RJ Julia ‘s independent bookstore, coffee shops, a cheese shop, International and American restaurants, boutiques, a library, outdoor sculpture by nationally renowned artists and a large grocery store.
Joining us for the summer? As is typical of New England towns, there is a town green where you will find concerts, a farmer’s market, arts and crafts fairs and antique shows from May through September. On the 4th of July weekend, join the local fun watching the parade, relaxing at the Pops summer concert and watching the fireworks.
Madison’s beaches, as well as, Hammonasset State Park (beach), have playgrounds, tables and grills for picnicking, sports fields and bocce/pétanque courts. (We will provide the pétanque balls.)
There are trails throughout town where you can hike and a nature center for birding and learning about the local animals.
There are a myriad of things to do for those cool or rainy days. You might decide to follow the Impressionist or the wine trial throughout Connecticut, or you might visit one of the many museums, go shopping, go to the theater, listen to live music or visit one of the gambling casinos.
