My daughter & I stayed overnight at the Scranton Seahorse Inn and loved our room, exclaimed over all the decorative details throughout the house, inclufing seahorses on the wainscoting. We appreciated the individual notes host Michael had typed up for us as guides to the house & to restaurants & walking to the beach. Finally the breakfast was awesome ...... More

This has become my home away from home! Michael is the best, his breakfasts are amazing. The Inn is warm and friendly and a stones throw to Madison's Main Street with shopping, eateries and a great book store. I'll be back - I'll see you again in August!

My wife and I have just gotten back from staying a second time and returning to Michael's had the same feeling as if you were coming home from a long trip. I call it Michael's because he is really what makes the Inn a special place to stay. He is very generous and will do what it takes to make... More

I can't speak highly enough of our experience at the Scranton Seahorse Inn. We were in town for a wedding at the Madison Beach Hotel and were so glad to be able to stay at a place that was so quiet and lovely. Michael is warm and friendly without being obtrusive; his cooking is wonderful. The rooms are clean and... More

The Scranton Seahorse Inn is a little slice of heaven and home put together. The Owner, Michael went out of his way to make us feel welcomed and comfortable. We stayed there for two weeks while looking for a more permenant home because our home was lost in a fire. Originally, we were going to stay at the Madison Beach... More

Thank you for taking time to review your stay. It really was a pleasure having you both here with your cats while you searched for a "new" "temporary" home. Visiting with the cats each day was a highlight for me while you were here. See you soon and come back anytime. More

Comfortable and clean. Room was small but functional. We had 2 breakfasts (over 2 days)... one was average and one was great. Convenient to the town of Madison...walking distance to the town was one block!

Upon entering the Inn, I felt immediately relaxed and at home. Michael, the innkeeper, was all ready for us. Gave us a tour and showed us to our well appointed room. The room was tastefully decorated and the linens were plush and comfortable. It was nice to have a bathroom attached to the room. I was in awe of the... More

I don't want to tell anyone because I don't want the place to get so booked up I don't get to stay there ...but Michael and his team deserve a stellar review. I would seriously live there FULL time if I could! The best part is the friendly community spirit that happens over the magic of Michael's Gourmet breakfast! I... More

I stayed at this lovely old B&B 2 nights while in the area on business. Innkeeper and pastry chef Michael Hafford kindly delivered his delicious breakfasts early to accommodate my work schedule. I could walk to area restaurants and come "home" each night to tuck into my cozy room. Nothing generic about this place - make it a stop if... More
