Property description

This 3 room, 1 bath year-round garden efficiency apartment is located in the scenic New England town of Madison, Connecticut on Long Island Sound. This 500 square foot efficiency is part of a stately old summer house built in 1918. Master bedroom has own cable television and full Murphy bed. 2nd bedroom includes a full fold down couch. Large living room with cable TV, fold out full couch, microwave, coffee maker, toaster, toaster oven and small refrigerator. Bathroom with shower. Deck next to tidal marsh great for bird watching or relaxing with a book. Picnic table and chairs right outside door. During summer months, ask about use of above ground pool as part of your experience.

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!
