Located in the heart of the village of Madison on the Connecticut shoreline, The Scranton Seahorse Inn was the home of the 2005 Connecticut Designer Showhouse. The Inn is housed in the historic 1833 Greek revival home of Sereno Scranton. The Scranton Seahorse Inn offers guests the convenience of luxuriously appointed accommodations along with the charm and ambience of a historic New England homestead – a place where you can enjoy the grace and charm of earlier times amid the comforts and conveniences of today. Featuring seven guest rooms (three with jacuzzi and one with fireplace ), each with private bath, cable TV, state of the art heat and air conditioning and internet access. The Inn is conveniently located close to beaches, charming boutiques, elegant restaurants, and outlet shopping.
Our first floor deluxe suite has an inviting fireplace, a large two person Jacuzzi with rain shower and queen size bed. Look out the front window and have a wonderful view of the charming village of Madison. From the back windows, there is an ever changing vista of the gardens and gazebo. When the weather allows you can step directly onto the side porch where you can relax, sip lemonade and watch the town go by
The guest room called Seaside Garden has a vantage point from the second floor. Located at the front of our historic home you look out on the town and Main Street over our gardens. The soothing colors promise a restful evening in a queen size bed with quality linens and ammenities. This room has a private bath with tub and shower.
It's the whimsical collection of items in Long Island Mist guest room makes this the innkeepers' favorite. A collection of books and shells atop the original built in chest of drawers, the wall art and the morning sunshine makes this room feel like your somewhere special. And you are! This room has a private bathroom and shower.
Whether you visit in the midst of winter or the height of summer our Sunlight Serenade room will surround you with the warm colors of the earth and sun. The thickly mattressed queen sized bed will lull you into sun-kissed dreams.
Follow the words on the walls to sleep, imagine and dream. Unwind after a day at the beach or shopping in nearby boutiques in the large private bathroom with a Jacuzzi and rain shower. Dream your ocean dreams in the queen sized bed covered in the ocean colors of green and blue.
Nightly Rate: $150-$175
This room is named after the homestead’s original owner, Sereno H. Scranton. We like to think of him cozying away after a day of ship trading or planning for the building of nearby bridges. This quiet room is tucked away in the back of the home with a gorgeous view of the back garden and gazebo. If you're a history buff we keep a collection of papers and books about the Scranton family in our library. This guest room has a double bed, private bathroom and shower.
Nightly Rate: $110-$130
Each of our queen guest rooms are unique and all have special charm. All guest rooms have a private bathroom and some are outfitted with a tub and shower while some have just a shower. Our queen beds are dressed with luxury linens and comfy pillows. You'll find convenient heating and central air controls in each room as well as televisions with cable and DVD players. There is free Wi-Fi throughout the inn.
Nightly Rate: $140-$180
What a rare treat to delight in a large and roomy space all to yourself in a quaint historical home. Be surrounded by five sunny windows that offer a panoramic view from so many different vantage points. Relax in the Jacuzzi and be soothed by the gentle rain shower and slumber in a queen size bed.

My wife and I were in Madison for a wedding and fortunately we found Scranton Seahorse B and B. The bedroom and public areas were very comfortable in good taste and not too fussity. Breakfast was delicious and our host Michael was very helpful. He noticed our packing for the beach and came over with a town beach pass! Looking forward to a return visit and exploring more of the Ct. shore Don

The Scranton Sea Horse is a wonderful little B&B with some cozy rooms a short driving distance from some of the CT's great beaches. Michael prepares some amazing gourmet breakfasts and the inn is extremely well-kept. Definitely will return.

I've stayed at the Scranton Seahorse a number of times and will always return. Michael is amazing, I always sleep well, breakfasts are the best and it's a 1/2 block for Madison's Main Street with lots of cute shops.

The Scranton Seahorsse is a lovely place in all it's details... lots of character and charm. Our host was friendly and accomodating and the food was fabulous! I will definitely stay again when I am in the area!

We enjoyed the whole Inn experience. Being "off season" gave us the opportunity to relax and unwind. Michael prepares delicious breakfasts. I tried a new way to make grapefruit and will be adding it to my own Sunday brunches. The hospitality made us feel comfortable the moment we walked in with personal touches such as a welcoming message near our room. Michaels warm and friendly personality really shines through. We enjoyed meeting his two Labs after breakfast. They add to the charm.

We have extended family in Madison and make a trip there a few times a year. The Seahorse has become a home away from home for us so much so that it's part of the reason we we visit our kids and grandkids so much. Michael and his mother (and sometimes the dogs) always make us feel special and welcome. Our rooms and the inn have always been spotless and comfy. Each room has it's own AC setting which is important to us. We get to walk to the beach in the mornings before breakfast which is always a highlight since we don't live near the ocean. The food is always creative, fresh and abundant. I'm gluten free and even on waffle day I'm taken care of. Michael allows outsiders to come to breakfast (for a fee) too. The inn is on the main road but set back so it's quiet but we opt for the room towards the back just in case. There is a great bookstore just 2 minutes walk that is a must. We don't usually eat out when we are here but there are plenty to walk to from the Seahorse.
Thank you guys! Meeting you and your family has been one of the highlights of this adventure. Looking forward to seeing you in February.
