Liked: Staff & service, amenities
The house and room are charming. The floor is old so it makes noises when you walk. Pieces of white stuff were seen on the carpet and floor.

4/5 Good

Great location, super hospitable host
The room was comfortable enough but it’s an old house with a lot of crooked lines so we had to put our bags in front of the door to keep light from coming in at night. But the location was superb and the host was so accommodating. And Madison is a lovely little town on the Sound with a great beach.

Michael and the Seahorse were wonderful!
We’ve been to the Scranton Seahorse before and are always impressed. Michael is an excellent host- friendly, knowledgeable of the area and makes the best breakfasts! We appreciate his efforts. The B&B is set back from the road so it’s relatively quiet. We were in room 3 and were very comfortable.
