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.

INNKEEPER’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 31 July 2016 via mobile

We loved Scranton Seahorse Inn! My husband and I escaped for a kid-free weekend and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The inn is immaculately clean and beautifully styled. Michael is a charming and informative host who is thankfully also a fine chef. Breakfasts were delicious and creative. The morning coffee was tasty and endlessly flowing. The Inn's location in downtown Madison...

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...

Service is outstanding. It is a beautiful renovated old house and it has all what you need. Location in Madison can not be better. The owners go out to satisfy all your needs. Our room was nice but the bed a little small. Breakfast is really very good. It is wothed every cent yoy pay.

Thank you Isaach! I know your stay was brief but it was such a joy to host you both during your stay in Madison. Next time you visit the United States please come by again and stay a little longer. My best, Michael.

A typical New England bed-and-breakfast place. Some areas need upgrade and modern amenities. The rooms are rather small but adequate for a short stay. The breakfast was excellent, tasty omelettes of your choice, sausage,and everything else if you need cereal etc. Arrive before seven pm, otherwise it's a bit complicated to enter.

We had a really great time at the Seahorse. Michael was a fantastic host and could not have been more helpful with really great tips on the surrounding area. The whole house and gardens were beautiful. Breakfast was great meeting new friends from Vancouver and NewYork. Hope to visit again in the future.

Inn is nice looking from outside and inside. Our room had cracks in the ceiling and walls; in need of paint; an apparent closet that was turned into a tiny make shift bathroom with a circular plastic shower that you could hardly move in. The web picture shows one wall not the entire room. Breakfast was marginal. Maybe the other...

Very sorry your experience with us was not up to your expectations. I don't disagree with you on the cracks in some walls. I do paint and repair as times allows. I imagine when someone like you who owns a construction business sees a crack they have a differing opinion of it than most of my travelers who set it...

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.

We had a very pleasant one night stay at the inn. The bed and bedding were very comfortable, there was a fun selection of DVDs, and breakfast was delicious. The grounds and porch could use a bit of upkeep (other nearby homes have very impressive gardens, so by comparison the inn's grounds were pretty modest). The website states that included...

Thank for taking the time to review your stay. My apologies about the wine and cheese - I have scoured the web site and cannot find where it indicates that we still do wine and cheese.

This is an amazing place to stay. The location, ambiance, owner, cleanliness etc could not have been better. The breakfast was to die for and the owner, Michael, tells you each morning about the breakfast goodies he has prepared. The tomatoes came out of his garden! Thank you, Michael, for everything. You were so accommodating to us and made us...
