We spent two nights at this bed and breakfast neart he Conn shoreline and were especially impressed with the quality and quantity of the breakfast. We hwve stayed in probably 60 B & B's over many years of travelling, and thoroughly enjoy them for the opportunity to see historic homes, interact and visit with other guests and the innkeeper, and...

My husband and I just had the great pleasure of staying at the Tidewater Inn for the second time and it was another phenomenal experience. The rooms are comfortable, the owner, Victoria, is wonderful, and the breakfasts are superb. You will want this place to become your new home.

What a lovely place! The breakfasts were top notch, the wine and cheese hours memorable, the recommendations by the innkeeper, Victoria, very good, but the most striking component, and that which makes this a 5 star review, is the innkeeper's attention to detail. She has left no component of a comfortable, clean, and accommodating bed and breakfast experience out, and... More

We along with another couple had planned a mid-week stay on our way to MA to play a little golf, explore the Madison area, and eat well. Victoria, friends and staff were very helpful and accommodating in our endeavors. The Inn is well arranged and tastefully decorated. There is a lovely landscaped garden and yard. Victoria has thoughtfully imagined and... More

I was impressed with Victoria before even walking in the door of the Tidewater Inn. When I called to ask a list of questions about the rooms and the area - yeah, I'm that type - she not only responded enthusiastically, but added her own thoughts and suggestions. By the time we finished our conversation, the only desion was how... More

Not usually a B&B person and this was a fantastic experience. Victoria was gracious and knowledgeable about the area. Stayed for 2 nights with my sister and we had a great time. Our room (2 twin beds) was well laid out and even the sink being in the room (and not in the ensuite bathroom) turned out to be very... More

Just returned from a delightful 3-night stay! Victoria made note when I reserved that it was my birthday, and welcomed us with a red velvet birthday cake festively presented in a basket with party noisemaker & balloon. She also supplied other niceties, such as a basket of snacks, and cold drinks in the fridge. Our room (the Madison Suite) was... More

We live in the city but were going to Madison to see the summer opera production. We stayed at The Tidewater because it was part of the package we had purchased at a charity auction. Now we are investigating reasons to return! The Inn is adorable and quaint and lovely but the real charm is the owner. Victoria goes out... More
