Reviewed 4 days ago NEWvia mobile

If you enjoy great hospitality, delicious breakfast, eclectic furnishings, comfortable rooms, private but perhaps small functional bathrooms, and charm, charm, charm, enjoy this inn. New England iconographic! From squeaky staircase to cool antiques and artwork. Walk to great restaurants, shops, and beach. And smile!

Thank you for your kind words - I think they paint a perfect picture of the place we call home. It was fun hosting your group for the short stay and I hope you make it back to Madison Connecticut and the Scranton Seahorse Inn again soon. All the best - Michael.

Just returned from an amazing 3 night stay with Michael. This is a great bed & breakfast in a perfect location. Local beaches and the town center of Madison are all a quick walk away. The inn is comfortable and welcoming, the rooms are spacious and make it easy to feel at home. Michael's breakfasts are nothing short of amazing...

Thanks for your comments! It was great to see you both and so glad you were able to relax without the kids in tow for a few days. We're never too far when you need to escape. Be well and be happy. Michael.

Michael the Owner/Innkeeper was most enjoyable and focused on delighting his guests. He is very knowledgeable about the Connecticut Shoreline and the lovely Town of Madison. We enjoyed two tasty and well presented breakfasts and the ambiance of the Inn. We look forward to return during the summer months and explore the many shops etc. Thank You Michael!

I had pleasant stay at this place. The room is very clean, nice bedding, and private bath. The Inn overall has nice settings. Michael, the host, is very warm. He greeted me when I checked in late at night. He also prepared breakfast, fresh & tasty. Check out the photo :-)

Michael is a fantastically thoughtful host, with formal culinary training as a pastry chef and a passion for local ingredients. He was accommodating, warm, inviting, and creative. The room was idyllic, the Inn charming, and the property well-kept. Madison provided the perfect backdrop to our getaway.

This is a beautiful, rambling old building nicely furnished with an eclectic mixture of old and new. If you enjoy historic homes, you will love it. The location is fantastic, as you can stroll within a minute or two to Madison's lovely shops, several restaurants and the library. A slightly longer walk or bike ride will bring you to the...

We stayed for the first time at the Scranton Seahorse Inn and had a wonderful time. The inn has an interesting history as the house was built by one of Madison's early influential families. The town is also interesting to explore...we ate dinner at one of the local restaurants and decided to go to a movie at the historical town...

Michael was a very gracious host who helped us feel welcome, made great local restaurant recommendations, and cooked up a delicious breakfast. There were a couple of hiccups during our stay--as is to be expected from time to time--and he went out of his way to make them right. We look forward to visiting again.

We found the location to be very convenient and innkeeper Michael most welcoming. The house is beautiful from the outside but a little "tired" inside. The breakfast was outstanding. Michael helped us get to know the surrounding area and mapped out a good walk for us.

Thanks for staying and many thanks for taking the time to comment on your time here. We love Madison so much and appreciate when our visitors get to stroll the village and beaches too. So sorry you found this beautiful historic home from the 1800's to be "tired". We prefer to maintain the historic charm like the gorgeous original floors...
