This is an amazing place to stay. The location, ambiance, owner, cleanliness etc could not have been better. The breakfast was to die for and the owner, Michael, tells you each morning about the breakfast goodies he has prepared. The tomatoes came out of his garden! Thank you, Michael, for everything. You were so accommodating to us and made us...

Melinda thank you so so much for your glowing review. I'm so glad you enjoyed your visit to Madison and super glad you found peace and rest here (on THE hottest weekend of the year too!). Next time there's a big birthday celebration I hope you and Ward make it back to our doorstep. Be well!

Thank you Michael for a wonderful getaway on our road trip. A last minute booking, the Seahorse was as charming as its name. With private baths (and a jacuzzi tub in our room), quirky appointments and very comfortable beds, our brief stay was excellent. The visit was topped off by an amazing breakfast which was worth the price alone and...

My wife and I took an upstairs room for much of June (about 3 weeks) and enjoyed the proximity of the inn to "downtown" Madison; the shore was maybe a 15 min walk away. Several good restaurants were within easy walking distance and the railway station was about a 10min walk away. The beds were comfy and the A/C effective;...

We loved Scranton Seahorse Inn! My husband and I escaped for a kid-free weekend and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The inn is immaculately clean and beautifully styled. Michael is a charming and informative host who is thankfully also a fine chef. Breakfasts were delicious and creative. The morning coffee was tasty and endlessly flowing. The Inn's location in downtown Madison...

Visited multiple years for girls' weekend with high school friends. Can't imagine having our weekend any other place. Michael is the penultimate host -- he anticipated all our needs well in advance of our stay and made all of the weekends perfect. Food is supreme and I highly recommend the Inn.

We spent 2 nights at the Scranton Seahorse Inn! We were thrilled with our choice! Michael is an amazing host and an amazing chef! He was very welcoming and helpful!

We spent a recent long week-end escape to the Scranton Seahorse Inn and we couldn't have been happier with our choice. Michael contacted us even before our arrival with restaurant suggestions, things to do and directions, and his helpful suggestions continued once we arrived. The gourmet breakfasts he prepared were wonderful and there were delicious cookies, soft drinks and water...

We had the pleasure of spending a night in the Sea Horse Inn on a recent road trip and we could not recommend it highly enough. Madison is a beautiful place and Michael is an excellent host.

I keep returning because this inn is top notch. Have been here over a dozen times now and each is consistently wonderful. Michael is a warm welcoming host and a gifted chef. I love this inn.
