A lovely two weeks in Madison

  • 5 of 5

We arrived the day after a major snowstorm. Everything was ready, driveway was plowed. The apartment is well designed for maximum privacy for two even for a studio. First couple of days the pretty pond outside the window was frozen but it soon thawed and the geese and wild turkeys arrived. Madison is a gem. Great little French style bistro down the street and an art house theater around the corner. We were a couple of blocks from the train station where we caught the local one morning, transferred to the Metro in New Haven, arrived at Grand Central about two hours later. Time for lunch, a museum crawl or a show, dinner, and then retraced our steps to our comfortable bed that evening. New Haven has at least three major stages, Yale, and famous pizza parlors. Our favorite seafood store was nearby in Branford. We had never had John Dory before; delicious. A bunch of fun locations are an easy drive from Madison; Essex, Middletown, Washington, Litchfield, as well as all the towns along the shore. Anne kept a low profile; but then we didn’t need her for anything. The place was well stocked and in general showed the results of excellent forethought. A lovely two weeks.

A perfect home experience in midst of nature.

  • 5 of 5

Me and my girlfriend wanted to stay in a cozy calm and quite place for a month. We did lot of research to find a place to stay which is motivating , suits work from home, study for exams and healthy food and amenities. My girlfriend being as doctor appriciated the cleanliness and the way Anne maintained the home. Owner is such a disciplined, prompt and organized we never had to worry about anything we need. View of lake is so motivating that we decided to extend our stay one more month. We are excited to join back Anne after short holiday for one more month :).

Home is equiped with almost every thing we need, vacuum, kitchen appliances, laundry , soaps, TV, Internet and lot of natural light in room as well as bathroom.

Beautiful department with a magnificent view

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful property with a splendid view!

Department very comfortable, clean, tidy, quiet and full equipped.

A special thanks and appreciation for the details we encountered such as soap, detergent for the laundry machine, some small things essential to kitchen, cleaning items, etc.

The hospitality, kindness and friendliness of Mrs Anne is without limits!

With my husband we spent a wonderful time, we will be back without a doubt.

Highly recommended!

Delightful and Just Right in Every Way

  • 5 of 5

I loved staying at Anne's cottage. She personally welcomed me and immediately felt like a friend. Her property was close to everything yet I felt like I was completely away from it all. The apartment was spacious and bright. The view of the pond from the kitchen was a joy. The kitchen and bathroom were well equipped and the water was hot with good pressure. And sitting by the pond for morning coffee and an evening glass of wine was magical every time. I look forward to returning for another getaway as soon as I can!

Quaint, clean, cozy accommodations for a wedding weekend in Madison

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at Anne's for a long weekend to be part of a friend's wedding. The space was very welcoming and provided a calm space to retreat to in between wedding activities. Anne was very laid back, but responsive when I reached out the day before we were set to arrive. She was flexible with check in time, which was a big help to us!

I would definitely stay here again if I found myself in Madison in the future.
