Overview

Madison Center Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Apartment, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath (Sleeps 4)

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!

About Christine Frick

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.

Why Christine Frick chose Madison

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.

Neat, clean and relaxing.

  • 5 of 5

We were very pleased with the apartment which was more spacious than we imagined. It was neat, clean and very peaceful. The small town of Madison is lovely. Our hosts made us feel at home and were helpful and attentive and welcomed our little dog. We would definately stay again.

Comfortable and well-sited family-friendly apartment

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four loved Madison and this apartment. A short drive to a choice of beaches, plus shops and restaurants. And to have beach towels, beach chairs, umbrellas and even fishing nets provided made it even easier. Plenty of space for us indoors and lots of birds and chipmunks to watch in the garden. All helped by good aircon to keep us cool in an exceptionally hot and humid week.

Perfect Apartment!

  • 5 of 5

This apartment was just right and met all my needs. It is clean, spacious and comfortable. Even during the hottest most humid days of July the temperature was comfortable. It's close to town, the beach and Hammonasset. Criss, the owner was always asking if there was anything I needed. I'm looking forward to my next stay!

Good

  • 4 of 5

It was a good place. Very neat, with everything we needed. The TV didn't work easily; but it did work. Very comfortable for us in May. It probably would be pretty hot in the middle of summer, so the fan which was there would have to be used. I would use it again in the cooler seasons. The owners were considerate.

Owner's Response: Glad you were able to stay with us. Sorry for the late response to your review! I did not see this posted. During the summer months we have air conditioners which keep the apartment quite comfortable (see reviews from summer guests). The movable fan is available for people who do not like air conditioning! Again, thank you for your stay and your kind review.

Great space and location

  • 5 of 5

This is a great space if you have a family and/or friends. Spacious living and dining areas in addition to the two bedrooms and kitchen. Flat was well equipped with amenities. Mainstreet in Madison is right down the road (restaurants, bottle shop, small shops, grocery store and more). Hammonasset Park is just down the road as well. Chris was very accommodating and the stay was a pleasant one. The stairs up to the flat could be an issue if you have mobility problems (steep stairway up to the flat). Would highly recommend this flat to stay in

Great Hospitality!

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect! It was impeccably clean and the area was wonderful. We made this trip last minute to be with a family member that would be at a nearby hospital and Christine made a stressful time very easy. She is an amazing hostess. She was so prompt with any inquiries we had, accommodating and gracious . The beach was walking distance away and we did end up going there one day to relax. The apartment is even better than described. It has a modern feel and we loved it. We would highly recommend it to anyone. We loved it so much we will be making it our "go to" place whenever we are in the area.

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. 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.
