Best Bed & Breakfast

July 29th, 2015 by hafford

bestofWe loved hearing that we won this category in a local readers poll.   Feedback from our friends and guests make it all worth while and we send a big THANK YOU to all of you.

What tickles us even more about this is that while there a lot of places to stay in the New Haven and  CT Shoreline area the top three places to stay in this poll are right here in Madison.    So there you have it  – Madison is a special place to visit and now you know that it’s a great place to stay too.   Come visit for a day or two or three.  We are here all year and would love to see you (again).

Read this great story about Madison Connecticut that was in the Hartford Courant recently.

May 28th – National Hamburger Day

May 28th, 2015 by hafford

Burgers

 

Not that we need an excuse to eat another hamburger but Thursday May 28th is National Hamburger Day so it’s really an obligation for today.    Besides eating a hamburger I thought I should share with you some of our favorite places to enjoy a hamburger.     They are all a short drive from the inn so if you come spend a weekend with us you have choices.

1.  Augur’s Irish Pub is our favorite hangout located near the green in Guilford.   This is truly local favorite where great people gather and great people work.   The burgers are big juicy and hand formed and cooked to perfection.   This is a no frills burger that a traditionalist will love!   It’s served on a hard roll with lettuce and tomato and a side of chips.  Plenty of local brews available on tap and in bottle.   This is our favorite place to watch the Red Sox and the Patriots.    The owner is a Jets fan but we lover her none the less.

2.  If size matters you won’t be disappointed with the burgers at Christy’s right here near the beach in Madison.  These monsters are served with a steak knife and fries.    My favorite is the chili burger topped with homemade chili, cheddar, and onion.   I never think I’ll ever be able to finish it but I always do.

3.  We love heading out to Old Saybrook and trying one of the dozens of burgers (and dogs) off the menu at The Rabbit Hole.  I don’t think I’ve tried them all yet but I am working on it.    The beer list is absolutely endless too so be prepared to make multiple visits so you can try every burger and every beer.    There are multiple TV’s  so you’ll find favorite team on one of them.

4.  Moxie is a fabulous gastropub here in Madison and a short 2 minute walk from the Scranton Seahorse Inn.    The burger and fries have become a local favorite.    I can’t get enough of the Cowboy Up Burger with jalepeno poppers and BBQ melted onions.   Lot’s of outdoor seating with great wines and a list of ever changing craft beers.    You’ll be happy you can walk there and back.

If you try out any of our favorites please let us know what you think.  Follow this link to another handy resource to great burgers and brews.

It’s great to be in good company!

Teachers need a recess too…..

April 9th, 2015 by hafford

Teachers are GreatLast month we celebrated nurses and this month we celebrate teachers.   If you’re a teacher and you’re lucky enough to have a bit of a break in April we hope you’ll spend a night or two at the Scranton Seahorse Inn.   All month long teachers will enjoy a 20% discount off their room rates.  We recognize your hard work, long hours and the pressures of your jobs during the school year (which seems to be getting longer and longer…) and want to you to know we are here to help you relax.   Come stay with us and walk the beaches before the summer crowds get here, hike the trails, sip wine at Chamard, take in a live performance at The Kate, dine at Moxie,  or get a massage.  Or do everything.   Or, maybe it’s time take a recess from everything and do nothing.  

Call 203.245.0550 today for reservations and we promise not to mention parent-teacher conferences at all when you’re here.
