Overview

About the property

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.

Languages spoken: English, French, German

Why Christine Frick chose Madison Center

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.

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.

Quick Trip

  • 4 of 5

This was a last minute quick trip. The accommodations are clean, spacious and the beds are comfortable. There are quite a number of stairs to get to the front door of the rental. Great location for out needs. Close to restaurants, area attractions and grocery stores. Just know that you have to bring items you will need if you are going to cook. Such as spices and tin foil. There was laundry detergent but no dryer sheets. We would definitely stay there again but come more prepared.

Owner's Response: Robert and family! So glad you were able to enjoy this walk-up for your quick trip. Sorry there were no dryer sheets or tin foil available when you arrived. I would have been happy to supply you with those items. Sorry for any inconvenience. Happy holidays! Criss

Great for family vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our family (2 adults 2 kids) loved the property. Our two-bedroom apartment was spacious and clean and had all the dishes & towels we needed, not to mention a great selection of DVDs, games, and books. Wifi worked well, though spotty in the bedrooms. Close to town with nice restaurants and the awesome state park. Criss was responsive and generous - offered to loan us beach chairs & umbrellas.

Clean, cozy, well-equipped, good location

  • 5 of 5

We were looking for somewhere to escape Black Friday weekend and this was a great choice. Criss's apartment was quiet and very relaxing to stay in. Criss always answered our questions quickly. Madison is a really cute town and we found lots of things to do despite it being the end on November. The state park is really near and gorgeous to walk around. The kids loved the bookshop in Madison. We would definitely recommend this place and want to come again in the summer.

Beautiful property with great location.

  • 5 of 5

High in the trees, this clean and spacious apartment was perfect for our weekend getaway. Walking to town was a major perk- accessibility to restaurants and stores. Clean and well kept. Living area was comfortable as were the bedrooms.

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.
