What could be better than your own cottage? Werelaxed outside under the leafy canopy and hiked in nearby Hammonasset State Park. We enjoyed the laid-back relaxed feel and the snug accommodations. The owners were super-helpful, available, and eager to please.

I grew up in Madison and have always regretted not having a family home here anymore. Beech Tree Cottages is a good substitute. Priced very reasonably, this property is clean (my number one requirement), convenient to a gorgeous walking/jogging path into Hammonassett State Park, and a short drive to the town's lovely beaches and shops. If you have 3 or... More

We loved staying at this cottage. The grounds are beautiful and the room we stayed at was very tastefully decorated. Even the art was far above what one normally expect to see at a hotel. The service is fantastic. We were able to borrow beach towels and a corkscrew. The front desk is discerning in their recommendations of restaurants, beaches,... More
