Trailside Guest House is a newly renovated house at the west end of Madrid’s uptown area. It is located next door to Trailside Rentals and is about one block north of Madrid’s main uptown entrance to the High Trestle Trail. The original part of the house was built in 1902, and it was enlarged at least twice in the following decades.
