We stayed for a wedding and had a great time. Thestaff was super friendly and the breakfast was delicious. They had a refridgetor and a basket of goodies that came in handy for free (aka my husband left his shaving cream at home!)Very cute spot and pleasant atmosphere for a weekend spot!

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. We really enjoyed our time with Victoria at the Tidewater. Very cozy wine and cheese with other guests and our lovely hostess. Lovely breakfast for lingering... More

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. We stayed at the Inn because my daughter was graduating from Yale. New Haven is about a 25 minute drive away from the Inn, north... More

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
