What Sets Us Apart
We know that all aspects of travel, where you travel, when you travel and who you travel with are such personal decisions. Having you choose The Homestead is an honor for us. We wanted to spend some time letting you know just what sets us apart from your typical Bed and Breakfast or other lodging choices. From our location, to incredible amenities such as spa effect shower heads, to a record player in your guestroom, we work diligently to set ourselves apart and create a memorable and special getaway for each and every one of our guests.
Located conveniently on Boston Post Road in Madison, Connecticut, our guests are just a short bike or car ride from beaches, amazing restaurants, wineries, and shopping. Madison is a quintessential New England Village that was established in 1862. Guests visiting from New York City or Boston love the charm of Madison and the convenient location on the Amtrak rail line.
This is what really sets us apart. From shower heads that infuse the water with Vitamin D to vintage record players, our amenities create a unique and fun experience.
Record Players & Musical Instruments
Few things in life are more relaxing than listening to your favorite music. At The Homestead, each room is equipped with a vintage-style record player. Prior to your arrival let us know your favorite artists and genre and we will have corresponding LP's from our collection awaiting your arrival! We are definitely music lovers at The Homestead. We also have a variety of musical instruments in our common areas just waiting for our guests! Whether your passion is tickling the ivories or strumming the day away on guitar, we've got you covered.
A small selection of our guestrooms feature private outside areas. However, The Homestead also offers larger common patios with fire pits and outdoor heaters. Our extensive grounds offer out-of-the-way spots for an afternoon picnic or evening glass of wine. Throughout the outdoor areas, you may notice some of our other VIP guests including deer, bunnies, and a variety of birds.
Handheld Spa Effect Shower heads
Enjoy a luxury shower with our spa effect handheld shower heads. The filter infuses Vitamin C & E into the water, both known to strengthen hair and nails and make skin softer. The shower head also removes chlorine and fluoride from water along with other heavy metals and sediment. So turn up the temperature and sing your heart out with a hot shower and wash your cares away.
In-Room Bottled Water by Pathwater
Our complimentary in-room bottles of water are reusable, recyclable, and ecofriendly. Pathwater Bottles are BPA-free and constructed of Aluminum instead of plastic. Best of all the bottles are 100% produced in the United States.
Complimentary Use of Bicycles
Ditch the car or arrive by train! Our beach cruiser bicycles are a great way to get around Madison. For the adventurous folks and those who work better as a team be sure to give our tandem bike a spin.
Our Approach to Hospitality
Finally, the number one reasons are guests come back time and time again is our approach to hospitality. We love our guests! However, we know that when you are on a relaxing getaway you may not always want us butting in. We are here, we are happy to help, but we don't want to get in the way of you enjoying The Homestead and your time in Madison. Don't worry, we will leave the light on for you when you come back from an evening of enjoying your vacation, but you don't need to worry about us waiting up for you like nervous parents. It's your vacation and we are here to make it the most relaxing and memorable time away possible.
