Don’t forget dear old dad….

June 13th, 2016 by hafford

fathers day When you purchase a gift certificate for dad this Father’s Day we’ll put a little something special in his room when he checks in.   If you’re dad enjoys beer he’ll find a sampler six pack of cold ones in his room when he arrives.   Connecticut has some awesome breweries (including a few right here on the CT. Shoreline) and we have our favorites that we look forward to sharing.    If dad prefers chocolate covered oreos, turtles and truffles over beer just let us know.   We’ll leave a nice collection  of hand made chocolates will be left instead.

A Last Minute September Special

September 8th, 2015 by hafford

Faulkner's IslandSeptember is a great time to be on and near the beach in Connecticut.   The weather in CT is spectacular with its’ warm days and cool nights.   I could sit on the beach all day to watch the sunrise and the sunset.  For the most part vacationers have gone back home and gone back to school leaving wide open spaces on otherwise crowded beaches.

We have a 3 night special at the Scranton Seahorse Inn throughout September that is hard to pass up.   For just $399 you get your choice of (available) guest rooms which includes a full breakfast each day.   We also have a supply of beach chairs and towels for you to borrow while you are here.   Don’t forget bike rentals are available from the inn until the end of October for just $10 a day.  The Madison Bike Share has been a great success this season and has benefited Vista Vocational along the way.

So if you’re not willing to let go of summer now is the time to make a reservation at the Scranton Seahorse Inn!  Call us for availability today.  Sorry, last minute specials cannot be used on existing reservations and do not include our two deluxe rooms.
