We just returned home after a wonderful, relaxing 2 night stay. Enjoyed ourselves so much we booked the same cozy, quiet Scranton room for Thanksgiving. High marks for delicious, yummy savory and sweet breakfasts, beautiful comfy poster bed, strong WiFi, wine and cheese reception by an inviting fireplace and BEST of all, Victoria, our lovely, gracious, knowledgeable and attentive Innkeeper....

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.

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.
