The Madison Resort Inn: "Maine Riverside lodging" Maine Hotel Tip by hobocamp2

Maine Hotels: 58 reviews and 52 photos

Driving through New England on a "leaf-peeping" excursion in late Sept., early Oct., we spent each night at a different site, never reserving ahead but looking for a "home for the night" as the afternoon grew late-- four or five pm.
We came upon Madison Inn alongside the wide river and nearly empty on a weknight at this time of year. Our room was spacious, clean and comfortable and well appointed.
There is a well-stocked exercise room as well as an outdoor pool .
There is also an attractive dining room, fireplace alight,walls decorated with trophy heads from Africa. Food was good and reasonable.
Continental breakfast in anaother dining area was included.

Unique Qualities: The Madison is well located for summer fun; hiking in Grafton State Park , which is bisected by the Appalachian Trail; and river activities right at the site.
We met a Canadian couple who was also overnighting there. They make it a regular stop on their annual trip to Cape Breton Island.
