I spent the weekend at the Scranton Seahorse Inn for some much-needed R&R. The inn itself was so welcoming, clean, and nicely decorated. My room was lovely--extremely comfortable bed and also extremely clean. Michael is a perfect host--he accommodated my gluten intolerance without batting an eye at breakfast (which was delicious, btw) and joined in some of the more interesting... More

Stayed for one night in the ocean dreams room. Bed was comfy, bathroom had a good shower. The room and the whole place has been decorated very nicely into the seahorse theme. We had breakfast with two other couples and that is the fun thing about B&B's you meet different people, have breakfast and a hopefully interesting conversation and you... More

It was again a pleasure to stay with Michael at the Scranton Seahorse Inn. Our room was impeccably clean, bed was so comfy. Wine and cheese is a great touch. ;) Breakfast was great, summer squash frittata with gruyere and Nodine's bacon was awesome. Thanks again for a lovely stay.

My husband and I stayed at the Scranton Seahorse Inn over July 4th weekend to attend a wedding and it was wonderful! The rooms are nice sized, and the home itself is clean, and decorated very well with little touches that remind you why staying at a B&B is so wonderful. The hosts were charming, gracious, and helpful without being... More

I happened upon this gem while searching for accommodations near New Haven. What a sweet surprise. The room was clean and comfortable..the bathroom spacious with a jacuzzi and rain shower. Great linens and a comfortable bed..ahhh. Breakfast was perfect and delicious. A small beach is within walking distance. We didn't have a chance to check out the quaint town and... More

My husband and I traveled 10 hours to attend a memorial service for my aunt. We were also visiting other relatives who are getting on in years. Overall, it would of been a very stressful time if it weren't for Michael and the Scranton Seahorse Inn. Michael met us with the welcome arms of a family member. He gave us... More

A most charming, lovely and relaxing 2-nights stay at the Scranton Seahorse Inn. We would go back in a NY minute. Michael is a fantastic host and we were welcomed like family. Even though the inn is located on the Post Road, it is very quiet. A gem!

I was traveling with my 9 year old daughter. We were going shopping and visiting a friend in the area. We only live about 1 1/2 hours away but decided to make it a mother daughter overnight. The inn is what a bed and breakfast should be. Extremely clean and attractive with many common areas to relax in, both indoors... More

My wife and I have the occasion to travel to Madison frequently and we will be staying with Michael every time. First, not only are dogs allowed, they are welcome. That is a huge plus for us because sometimes we take our dog. However, even when the dog doesn't accompany us Scranton Seahorse is the place to stay. Simply put... More
