This garden apartment efficiency 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!

Beautiful property, well stocked apartment
A friend and I stayed for the weekend at Criss's place. She upgraded us to her other apartment on the property at no cost. Everything was very clean and comfortable. Her home and the property are beautiful. I cannot say enough about the little town of Madison. Her property is definitely walk-able to town. Not sure about the beach--didnt want to try it with a snow storm and temps in the teens but others say it is! We felt very comfortable during our stay. Lots of extra blankets, etc, Kurig coffee make, etc. Thanks again!
Thank you for Awesome accommodations! Mrs. Frick was extremely friendly. I would highly recommend to anyone looking to spend a fun quiet weekend in the CT area!
Lovely place, comfortable beds, accommodating host, good location.
Enjoyed our week in this attractive apartment -- it is very close to center of charming town and several beaches, although walking to both is on a busy road without sidewalks. Host lives on premises and was responsive, pleasant and respectful of our privacy. Would definitely return!
Carol, thank you for your kind review. Enjoy time with family during the holiday season. Please come back in the future! Criss
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 garden apartment efficiency 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.
