3BR Cottage Vacation Rental in Madison, Connecticut

Vacation Rentals

Updated on May 31, 2019

Quiet private beach. Beautiful authentic beach cottage on the beach.

Located in: Madison
Life at the beach won't get better than this!

Or more relaxing. This is a quiet nature retreat that's perfect for couples and families. The recently updated cottage is beautifully restored with a new and well-outfitted kitchen.

Just a few weeks are available this year to enjoy your vacation at our charming, comfortable, quiet, private beach. Our cottage is family owned (70+ years and 6 generations). It's our treasured home that we've put a lot of TLC into, not a commercial real estate venture. We rent only the weeks when family members aren't using it.

On the beach — Our family's 1938 historic wood cottage is directly on Circle Beach, a quiet cove of Long Island Sound with 18 cottages on a small peninsula of sand. The water is right outside the door.

Recent upgrades provide a fully appointed cook's kitchen and large open LR/DR areas. The interior is light, bright, and airy...large windows carry the ocean breezes throughout the cottage.

A wall-to-wall beach deck is under the cottage. It's a private, shaded outdoor living room with ample patio seating and dining area. The surf is just a few steps away. Upstairs, the large screened porch overlooks the beach where you can read a book while watching the kids and sandpipers on the beach below. Perfect place for dining and sitting.

Our family's cottage is located just 20 miles east of New Haven. It's a classic New England cottage with original rustic knotty-pine walls, but recently updated with all the modern creature comforts you need, too. It’s a charmer that is bright, airy, and nicely appointed.

Having a wedding, family reunion, or large gathering?
This is NOT the place.
See more details at the end of this page.

Private beach at the door — No need walk a few blocks to the beach with your paraphernalia. The beach is at your door! Uncrowded, private, quiet, and convenient.

Circle Beach is a small, residential beach used by owners for R&R. It is not Hammonasset (that's on the other side of town) or Fire Island NY (that's across the Sound!).

Noticed how often "quiet" appears in this description? That's a hint!

Quiet nature retreat — The cottage is surrounded by nature: Long Island Sound on the south, and Ox Marsh / East River Wildlife Area on the north and west. It's adjacent to 100+ acres of preserved beach and marshland that's perfect for birding and kayaking. Egrets, great blue herons, gulls, sandpipers, ducks, ospreys, and dozens of other shorebirds thrive here and you'll often spot them from the porch while having your morning coffee in your PJs.

Boaters and kayakers delight — A free state public boat launch is just down the road where you can launch your boat across from Guilford Harbor and head out to the Sound, or launch your kayak for leisurely trips up the East and Neck Rivers that run behind the cottage through the wildlife saltwater preserve where you'll spot countless shorebirds.

360 degree views — Watch spectacular sunrises and sunsets from the porch, living room, and bedrooms. Gaze at the ospreys in the marsh while you're still in bed. Identify the various sandpiper, egret, and gull species from the waterside porch. Watch the sailboats and ships pass Falkner's Lighthouse about 5 miles off shore. Everywhere you look, it's gorgeous.

And it's quiet because this is a residential neighborhood of property owners, not a commercial rental.

The fishing's great — Surfcast from in front of the cottage and catch tonight's supper...striper, porgie, flounder and more. Or launch your boat and fish farther offshore for larger fish. Or join a fishing charter at a neighboring harbor and go for blues.

Our family's home for 70+ years — Six generations of our family have enjoyed the cottage and we're sure your family will love it, too. Because it's our family's summer home, we maintain it with lots of TLC and outfit it with comfortable, inviting furnishings. Enjoy our seashell collection from our beach and from beaches around the world. With several artists in the family, you'll find family oil paintings, photographs, and pottery. And don't hesitate to tap into our book library, kids toys and picture puzzles. This is not an ordinary beach cottage rental, that's for sure!

Internet (both WiFi and wired) and cable TV are provided.

It's ready for your family — There are always breezes here at the beach, so come cool off and chill out for a while. Expect temperatures 5-to-10 degrees cooler than inland. Just bring your bed linens, towels, and flip-flops and you're all set for a relaxing, cooling vacation at the beach.
