I chose the Quinnipiack Club because of the location and because of the availability of specifically twin rooms at a very inexpensive rate. Unfortunately, my traveling companion had to change her plans, but the Club was still a very good value for a single visitor. The staff is very welcoming, the breakfast better than basic continental and the gentlemen's 1871 club ambience is charming. And half a block from New Haven Green is a wonderful location.
This B&B's website photos matched the actual appearance and conditions. It was very clean, pleasant and details for my stay were simple and easy. I met other's traveling to Yale for various reasons so the tenants were worldly. The atmosphere lends it to be as private and autonomous with opportunities for socializing locally. It is in a safe neighborhood too!
ok but not great. room was cramped, bathroom actually outside the room itself, shower had great pressure, TV in room was actually a small computer monitor that was on a desk so impossible to see from the bed itself. breakfast was ok but not great. location is good, parking also easy/good
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.
Great Place to stay. Amazing location and Great Stay. Definitely recommend. Clean, Great Price, Amazing location right in the middle of town, Friendly and helpful staff, Beautiful hotel and great breakfast. What else can I say.
Victoria is friendly and goes above and beyond to make you feel comfortable while staying at her B&B. The setting is lovely and the rooms are perfect. I eat gluten free and Victoria made me home made gluten free muffins each day of my stay. I truly recommend staying here.
My wife and I stayed overnight at Farnam Guest House while visiting our son at Yale. My wife and son had stayed there a year ago, while visiting the university, and so we knew that we would have a pleasant experience. Our room , the Whitman Room, was comfortable, immaculately clean, well-lit with ample windows, yet quiet. As an extra, we had a mother robin on a nest of blue eggs on the window ledge of our room. The owner is a gracious, welcoming host. She has planted wonderful flowers and bushes around the house, and we shared gardening tips with each other. The house is on the edge of campus, and we found we could walk to restaurants and campus building easily. We recommend this B&B highly.
The room was a tad small but quite comfortable. The guest house was clean, the service outstanding, and the breakfast terrific. Overall, my stay was quite enjoyable, and I would highly recommend Farnam Guest House to others.
It has the intimacy of a club, free parking behind the building, walking distance to all sights and restaurants. We liked the Yale guided tour and the exceptional Yale Art Museum, very much. We recommend this place!
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.
Was attending a funeral in the area, and only stayed one night. Can only comment on the room in which I stayed; the staff said it was the smallest, but I found it quite spacious and very tastefully appointed. Not really promoted as a B and B so I was surprised to find muffins, juice, and coffee in the room. Restaurant right next door and deli across the street. Beach an easy one-block walk. Main drag of Fairfield a short drive. Staff were extremely accommodating. Would definitely stay there again. Their video and web site is truly representative of what you can expect.
This was a lovely place. Gracious hostess and staff, beautiful house and furnishings, interesting guests, fresh fruit at breakfast. As a woman traveling alone, I found this a safe and comfortable place to stay; I went running through the beautiful neighborhood in the morning, and was able to easily walk to Yale (about a mile). I stayed in one of the small rooms with a shared bathroom on the third floor; no problem with sharing the bathrooms, as there are other available if necessary. Also, there is a refrigerator/kitchen on the second floor which was nice, since I could store my leftovers from my meals at some of New Haven's great restaurants. Would highly recommend The Farnam House.
Farnam Guest House was a great place, accommodating our family of six. We were in awe of the historical aspect of the home, and how it was structured to accommodate the Dow Family. Beautiful place settings on the table brought us back in time, gave us opportunity to appreciate vintage setting. Loved the upstairs kitchen which gave us an opportunity to recap the day's event with dessert and tea upon our return from touring New Haven CT!
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!
