A positively stunning king size canopy bed, with tall spiral carved wood spindle posts and a crown molding canopy frame, is just magnificent and instantly commands your attention as you enter this spacious second floor guestroom. You will feel like royalty in this beautifully appointed room. A defined separate sitting area, including a silk-upholstered love seat in an oriental style fabric and two comfortable wing chairs, invites conversation and settling in with a good book, and with a writing desk ready for penning your love notes, you'll fall in love. The ensuite bathroom is large and tiled and has a beautiful sink and walk-in shower. Appointments include spa toiletries and plush and thirsty terry robes and towels. One of the many nice things about the Madison Suite is it is open and airy, with windows on three sides, overlooking our English Garden, to the West, and tidal marsh through the trees to the South. In winter, when the leaves have fallen from the trees, you can even get a glimpse of the sparkle of the sunshine on the waves of Long Island Sound, just under a half mile in the distance. Relax and feel welcomed in this one-of-kind room. Air conditioned in Summer and comfortably warmed in Winter, an antique dresser, free Wifi, cable TV, and a small refrigerator hiding in the closet for your convenience, perhaps to chill a special wine, complete the appointments in this semi-suite guestroom.
