Madison cottage description
Newly-remodeled beach cottage only two houses from the beach! For the fitness-minded, the cottage is a perfect location for setting out on hikes along the new Greenway and biking or running down the picturesque roads along the sandy shore.
Located on a leafy, tranquil road that dead-ends at a private beach, the sunny, wood-floored cottage comfortably sleeps two, but could accomodate a couple with one young child. There is 1 double bed and a loft with two double mattresses, 1 bath with shower, full kitchen, patio and spacious backyard with outdoor shower. The shared yard has flower gardens, a vegetable garden, blueberry bushes, rose gardens, and a privacy fence. Cottage includes air conditioning, wide-screen television, wireless internet and telephone.
The bluestone patio with Adirondack chairs makes a perfect place to have breakfast and watch the sunrise or cocktails and watch the sunset. Grill and dine outside on the patio or take the short walk to the private beach for a picnic. The large backyard is ideal for croquet and bocce. Located two houses back from the beach on Long Island Sound, you can walk up the beach or along the road into town, which is only a mile away. Use of bikes, hammock, kayaks, canoe and sunfish.
The cottage is located in the village of Madison, with its historic town green, world class book store, art cinema and fine restaurants. You can easily make day trips to Mystic Seaport, the Yale campus in New Haven, the Thimble Islands, Essex and other Connecticut River towns, vineyards, and shopping outlets. Grab your coffee at Starbuck’s and walk over to the classic Town Green to enjoy the Farmers’ Market or browse antiques at one of the many weekend fairs.
We are located approximately 30 minutes from New Haven (museums, theater, dining). We are located approximately 40 minutes from Mystic Seaport, Mystic Aquarium, and the local casinos (Foxwoods and Mohegan Sun). Other nearby attractions include Hammonasset State Park, the Goodspeed Opera House and the Essex Steam Train. Madison is under two hours by train or car from New York City and Boston. The Shoreline East Train runs from Madison, with a connection to Grand Central Station, New York and to Boston and Providence. Shop and dine in the quaint neighboring towns of Guilford, Branford, Old Lyme and Old Saybrook which are only minutes away.

About the owner: Lovers of the beach and sun, we enjoy sharing with our guests the sounds of waves crashing on the beach at night and seagulls calling in the morning. As two educators, we enjoy our summers in this lovely town with our children.
Why the Owner Chose Madison:
Madison offers easy access to the major east coast cities. The proximity to the ocean and a private beach combine tranquility with a cosmopolitan flair.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
A typical summer morning has you strolling the short walk to the beach to enjoy your coffee while you check on the tides. Returning to the cottage, breakfast on the patio precedes a shopping excursion to Madison, with stops at the antique shops, the bookstore, the town library and the various boutiques. Lunch overlooking the water prepares you for an afternoon of golf and tennis or simply sitting on the beach while reading your favorite book. Drinks while watching the sunset leads to dinner in town or at the cottage.
