Property description

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 the owner: 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

Why the Owner 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.
