My husband and I spent one night here and would return again. The inn keeper/owner, Victoria greeted us upon arrival and invited us in for a glass of wine and cheese that afternoon we arrived. Nice touch, on the house between 5&7 nightly. She asked us if we had any food allergies regarding her homemade breakfast plans for the next... More

We did enjoy our two night stay at the Tidewater Inn in Madison, CT. The location was so central to everything: it is walking distance to many of the shops and restaurants in the center of Madison. Also, there are beaches nearby and the host and owner, Victoria, gives you a permit to use the town beaches. We loved the... More

I appreciate you sharing your thoughts on the rooms, too. This home has been around for decades, and I believe that some of the wear that you describe adds a unique... More

I've stopped at Tidewater on my way up to CapeCod and really enjoyed it. The room and bath was in perfect shape. The innkeeper Victoria is very friendly and was very nice about getting me an early breakfast when I needed an early start to beat the traffic. The inn is about 1 block out of town so its easy...

My husband had business in both New Haven and Guilford and we chose to stay in Madison at the Tidwater Inn for its location as we wanted to also visit Old Lyme for business.

Selected for its convenient location, this inn proved to be a real gem. Its proprietor, Victoria is a real hands on innkeeper, making sure that everything is just right. And she is a delight to chat with. We stayed in the Cottage, just outside the main building, and it felt like being in the middle of the country. Each day... More

Victoria is so hospitable and endlessly kind. The room was wonderful, breakfast was delicious and varied. It was lovely to have a place to stay where I also felt as though I made a friend.

Excellent...from the comfortable bed and room to the fire in the living room to the complimentary wine and cheese each evening. We felt at home the whole time. A number of nice local restaurants to choose from and beautiful small town. Highly recommended.
