5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 11, 2010

My partner and I did a one-day quick getaway to this charming Bed and Breakfast to get away from the hustle and bustle of New York City, and we had an absolutely delightful time. The house is charming, and the innkeeper, Michael, was extremely gracious and accomodating. Due to a room cancellation, Michael actually upgraded us to a bigger room free of charge!!! The breakfast was delicous and the grounds of the property are beautiful. This place gets 5 stars!

We stayed here for an extended time as we were in the middle of a move and were completely satisfied with our entire stay. It is right in the middle of town and personal touches are apparent throughout.

Michael and his family (and dogs) were the ultimate hosts and his breakfasts were fantastic. They were absolutely accommodating and made us feel like part of the community. We also really enjoyed meeting other people that were staying in the inn during breakfast.

We now book all of our visitors here and they all have nothing but great things to say about the Seahorse. What a breath of fresh air!!

We stayed in the Town View room for our anniversary and were amazed by this inn. The room was clean with a great Jacuzzi, comfortable bed, TV w/DVD, and a small dining area. Super romanitc room for a anniversary! Great gardens to share a bottle of wine in or read a book. So relaxing. Michael's breakfasts were to die for definately worth getting up early for! Olive was a aweetheart great friendly service all around. Great conversation with some other guests. I cant say enough. Madison is our favorite getaway town and now this is our favorite INN. Can't wait to return! I know we said 6 months from now but I am not sure we can wait that long. Thank you for the wonderful stay!

My husband and I had only one night at the Scranton Seahorse Inn, but in the time we spent there, we could tell it was a wonderful place to stay. Just as we parked the car, we were greeted at the front door and then led to a beautiful room where we had a peaceful nights rest. We didn't even have time for breakfast the next morning, but heard from a friend that it would've been a delicious meal.
We have to go back and get the full effect of this lovely inn!

The Seahorse Inn sits on Madison's main street, right in the middle of everything. Run by Mike with help from his mother, they generally let you have run of the place, which was nice.

The place was cozy and airy, and the breakfasts were grand and sumptious.. as Mike is also a gourmet chef! We really felt like guests of an old friend.

We stayed in the room on the first floor with a beautiful jacuzzi tub, comfortable bed, great movie selection and a fantastic separate sun/reading room. Our room had a private entrance which lead out to a relaxing side porch overlooking an impressive garden and quaint town drive. The porch was equipped with plenty of seating... including rocking chairs! We enjoyed sipping our beverage of choice on the porch while wishing we could stay longer. Michael prepared a perfect breakfast and he had stellar recommendations for all things related to local dining, pampering, etc.
