Yes, the inn is nice, Victoria is great, it's in a terrific area, and you'll love breakfast. Now for the important stuff. Of the many B+Bs I've stayed in, this is the first to have an iron and ironing board in the room. The bathroom is overstocked with assorted soaps and toiletries, and has a blow dryer..

I stayed here last month. My room was very clean and comfortable, but the carpeting is quite old and shabby. The sink was in the room, which was ok, but the shower was tiny. Breakfast was delicious. But beware that the hot breakfast doesn't start to after 9:30, so I had to miss it entirely my first day (there are... More

My son and his girlfriend booked a three night getaway at this beautiful and relaxing bed and breakfast. It is conveniently accessible by MetroNorth station and a car is not an absolute must. They enjoyed biking and kayaking as well as walks to the town of Madison but their stay was made perfect by Victoria. She is friendly and never... More

This B&B is a great place to stay. The breakfast was delicious, and the room was clean and comfortable. They also stock a fridge with drinks and snacks - very nice! Convenient location to a lot of the local attractions, bars, restaurants. Definitely a good place to stay!

We stayed at the inn for two nights in August. Lovely gardens and rooms. The breakfasts were delicious. Awesome presentation. Enjoyed the conversations with the guests and innkeeper. She was very helpful with suggestions for antique shops and restaurants. The inn also provided a pass to the town beaches. Highly recommend a stay here in Madison.

I have decided in my old age to venture out of the Bronx and try B&B places. Montauk and Cape May have been my places of choice, however, what a nice surprice, Connecticut has been. Especially, Madison. Come here for a day or spend a few more days.There are 3 beaches, plus the State beach. Lobster and seafood, along with... More

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
