And Oscar Goes To….

March 3rd, 2014 by hafford

OscarCongratulations Lisa for predicting 8 out of 8 winners in our Oscars contest.   15 of you answered with 100% accuracy and resulted in the random drawing from which Lisa’s name was selected.  We also had 4 participants whose predications were all wrong which has me thinking that next year there needs to be a prize for that too!.    Lisa will be receiving her gift certificate for a One Night Getaway  at the Scranton Seahorse Inn plus a copy of the Argo DVD which was last years best picture winner.

The last question I asked was for you to write in your favorite movie of all time which I know is hard to do.  The wide range of answers proves that entertainment is subjective and that everyone finds something to love in almost every story told through cinema.    Here’s a sample of the answers:   Camelot, Wizard of Oz, To Kill a Mockingbird, Finding Nemo, Monsters, Inc.,  The Godfather, Rocky I and Rocky V, Groundhog Day, & Europa Europa.      The movie listed as a favorite most frequently was Shawshank Redemption.   I love that movie too and is in fact already part of our DVD library.   I loved all the answers and will save the list and use it when I am adding to the  Scranton Seahorse Inn collection.

Next time you’re staying at our bed and breakfast be sure to look through our DVD collection and take your favorite(s) back to your guest room and relax with a good movie.

Thank you again everyone and once again congratulations to Lisa!   See you at the inn!

Enter Our “Pick The Oscar Winners” Contest & Win a Free Night

February 17th, 2014 by hafford

OscarIt’s Oscar season which means it’s time for our annual PICK THE OSCAR WINNERS contest.   In the past we have given away a DVD of the Best Picture winner from the the prior year.   This year I’ve upped the jackpot to not only include the DVD (Argo won best picture last year) but also a gift certificate for a free night at The Scranton Seahorse Inn.   All you need to do is click the link below which will take you to the contest I’ve created on Survey Monkey.   There are 8 categories you need to select winners for (1 selection for each question is required).   Fill out your name and email address and your done.  I will only reach out to you via the email address you provide if you are the winner.     In the event of a tie we will randomly select a single name to be the winner.

If you’ve stayed here before you know we love movies and you already know about our DVD library.   Guests have called our collection everything from “great” & “eclectic”, “crazy”  & “awesome”.   This is the time of year we add to that collection so return guests should be sure to take another look on your next visit.      If you haven’t stayed here yet we hope you do soon and when you do be sure to grab a few DVDs from our library (this is also where you’ll find the free homemade cookies) and watch some good movies.

NOTE:  I added the question “What’s your favorite movie of all time?” to the end of the survey.  I’m curious to see how everyone responds and I’ll be sure to share the results.   If we don’t already own the title that gets the most results I’ll be sure to get it.    By the way my favorite movie, To Kill A Mockingbird, is already in our library.    Good luck everyone!
