Special Rates Just For Teachers

February 16th, 2014 by hafford

teacherCalling all teachers and educators!   I’m not even sure there is a winter break (again) this year but in the event there is I have special rates through the end of February just for you.   It’s my way of saying thank your for all you do  and to let you know I think the future looks brighter every day thanks in part to your hard work.

These darn breaks seem to disappear and dwindle away with every snow flake that falls from the sky so if you have just a short window of opportunity to escape you really should.   Of course it would be really great if you escaped to the Scranton Seahorse Inn.   When you let us know that you’re a teacher/educator  we’ll take 25% off your room rate whether it’s 1, 2, or 3 nights.   And if you really need to decompress don’t forget to ask about our fantastic massage therapist who comes on site.

A full breakfast is included every day of your stay and I promise there will be no parent-teacher conferences while you are here.

Last Minute Specials – February 7-10

February 6th, 2014 by hafford


Hammonassett Feb 2014We’ve already had our fair share of snow here on the east coast.    Fortunately for us that also brings with it a unique beauty for all to appreciate.   The photo here is one I took as the dogs and I were out walking early one morning through Hammonassett State Park.

Looking for a last minute getaway this weekend?  All of our remaining rooms for this weekend are discounted to just $110 per night.   The Scranton Seahorse Inn is conveniently located in the center of Madison on the Connecticut shoreline which makes it a great place to sneak away to for a night or two.      So, whether you’re in need of a place where you can put your feet up and relax in front of a fire, or a quiet retreat where you and your best friend can play a game, build a puzzle, or hide in your room with a bottle of wine and a movie, or if you’re looking to do some coastal exploring, we are here to help and have everything you need.

Call us today at 203.245.0550 to book your getaway at the Scranton Seahorse Inn.  A full breakfast is always is included.
