I stayed at the Grandfield B&B before and after my wedding. Everything about it was just perfect. From the rooms to the grounds and the complimentary breakfast. We were able to use the whole house and the beautiful grounds. I couldn't be happier with the service from Tim and Carlos. I look forward to spending more weekends at the B&B.
My husband and I stayed in the master suite at the Grandfield in mid August to celebrate my birthday. The multiroom master suite consisted of a sitting area, a very large master bedroom (with the bed on a platform), a huge bathroom area consisting of a sauna, a whirlpool tub, ficus and other plantings, a Roman shower, and a wide sink and counter with ample storage. As a whole, the suite was spacious and comfortable, although seating in the bedroom portion of the suite was minimal. However, a large sitting area outside the bedroom offered ample seating and a wide view of the gorgeous, extensive, well manicured, bird-filled grounds that covered 3 1/2 acres. The pool offered a pleasant site for reading, relaxing, and sunning. The staff, consisting of owner, Tim, business person, Donna, and chef and Jack-of-all-trades, Carlos, was personable, warm, hospitable, and efficient. Carlos' breakfasts were simple, but tasty and filling. Getting there via exit #62 on I-95 was best done following the provided directions; GPS will take you on a round-about, less-direct route. Hammonasset Beach State Park was nearby, and Madison was only 5 minutes away where dining at the Bar Bouchèe and Madison Beach Hotel restaurants was delightful.
This was the first bed and breakfast my girlfriend and I ever stayed in and it will be hard to top this cozy and comfortable inn. Victoria, the innkeeper, was great and very welcoming, never overbearing. She knew that we didn't have a car so she wrote us up an itinerary with places to visit, where to eat, where to ride bikes etc and gave us many tips to enjoy our stay in Madison. Our room and the house were beautifully immaculately furnished. We had quiet relaxing nights after kayaking or biking and exploring the beach and nature trails. Vicotiria even went the extra mile to cook us vegetarian meals (such as outstanding blueberry pancakes, fruit, etc) as well as providing all guests with delicious baked goods throughout the day. I loved her crumb cake and all her muffins! I would highly recommend this inn to all!
We stayed here for one night on our way back to New York City. We were very sorry that we had not planned more days at this B&B. We loved our short stay here and will return on our next trip in this area. From the hospitality to the surroundings, this place is an A plus.
Situated in a convenient location on a nice piece of property. Friendly staff and reasonable rates. We stayed one night and wish we stayed longer. Carlos is the man! We will be staying there again.
Friends were getting married last weekend and the Bride lost her space to get ready prior to the wedding. As I was staying in the Madison room which is quite specious I asked Victoria the inn keeper if she would mind. The Bride, and her close relatives if they could use my room. Victoria said of course, "let's help the Bride!" The room is very quaint so the photos of the Bride getting ready will I'm sure be beautiful. It was a lovey stay. I was too busy so I didn't have the chance to try the breakfast but as soon as I arrived they offered wine and cheeses which was a God sent after the 4.5 hours of traffic from Manhattan.
Our third visit to the Grandfield was even better than the first two! As usual, we had a great time with the host Tim, and fantastic breakfast served up by Carlos each morning. The pool and outdoor hot tub are fantastic, and it was wonderful to relax poolside. The linens, room, and bath were very clean. Fantastic place to stay!
nice decorated room nice garden and please to read and relax small beach at walking distance state park is a short drive, good beaches there Mike is very friendly and offers good service and a nice breakfast
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.
The house is gorgeous and we felt very welcome there. The grounds are perfect for taking a walk. Our room was very nice but we spent most of the time at the wonderful pool. There are several rooms downstairs for reading or watching TV. Everyone was kind and thoughtful, from Donna (reservations) and Carlos (cook, etc.) to Tim, the owner. We will definitely stay there again! Patty and Holly
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.
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!
The Tidewater Inn came up on the web as the best B&B in the CT shore area. It did not disappoint! Comfortable room! Great king size bed! Welcoming and helpful hostess. Nice visit time over complementary wine & cheese. Good location too!
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.
Reserved the Inn for the weekend of our daughter's May 2013 wedding. The Bride and her bridesmaids stayed the pre-wedding night and had a wonderful time. It was a sleep-over reminiscent of her high school and college days. The day of, Carlos served a wonderful breakfast. Hair and make-up was done, flowers arrived and were displayed on the dining room table, photographer and videographer took full advantage of the beautiful location. Father and Mother of the Bride, out-of town friends, and family stayed the night of the wedding. The day after, family and friends relaxed, enjoyed, and recovered from our special event. The Grandfield Bed and Breakfast will always be a huge part of our Wedding memories. Thank you, Tim and Carlos! Michael and Barbara
We selected the Tidewater Inn, as a fall get away with 2 other couples with whom are very close friends that we travel with once a year. This in was amazingly clean, comfortable, and the hospitality was A rated! We loved the early evening social hour with the complementary local wine selections. This was a great addition to our stay. Thanks so much for a delightful weekend, Victoria. We highly recommend staying here. The breakfasts were wonderful, I just didn't like the Johnny Cakes at all, though. I hope you don't mind the suggestion, but perhaps it would be better to give guests a choice when it comes to whole grain selections.
