Enter Our “Pick The Oscar Winners” Contest & Win a Free Night
It’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!
Special Rates Just For Teachers
Calling 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.
Our Soup this Sunday (FEBRUARY 23rd) is Russian Borscht w/ Beef.
There are many things we do here on the Connecticut shoreline in order to coexist with the cold New England weather. From skiing and skating to reading and hibernating, we each have our own ways to keep from going stir-crazy during Old Man Winter’s annual visit. One of my own favorite winter rituals is to make homemade soup. It’s healthy (well…sometimes!), satisfying and delicious, which means that in one pot I get to fulfill all of my new year resolutions: live healthier, cook at home more, and eat better.
The aromas that fill the inn are second only to the reward of eating a bowl of hot homemade goodness. I enjoy it so much that I have have started sharing my ritual with our Sunday guests and am calling it Souper Sundays. All guests that check in on Sunday are invited into the kitchen to help me prepare what will become the Sunday supper that we will share at dinner time. It’s a time to bring the ever-changing Scranton Seahorse Inn guest community together to do something fun, healthy and, if we do it right – utterly delicious.
Book your room with us and enjoy a perfect stay at a classic Connecticut bed and breakfast that includes a cooking class and dinner with (new) friends. Bring your own favorite wine if you wish, and we’ll provide the soup, bowls, and spoons!
See you at the inn!

Dinners at the Farm, Madison Connecticut
What happens when great personalities come up with an idea to generate awareness of the importance and vitality of our local farming community? Things like Dinners at the Farm happen. And they’re happening right here on the Connecticut shoreline at Madison’s Barberry Farm and East Lyme’s White Gate Farm.
Beginning this weekend and continuing for several weeks you have the opportunity to eat delicous food prepared by some of the best chefs in CT and at the same time reconnect farming, cooking, and eating. Each event includes a tour of the farm followed by a 6 course menu including paired wines. And that’s not all. Dinners at the Farm also strengthens our community by helping to raise funds for local agricultural and humanitarian non-profit organizations.
There are still limited tickets available so check out the schedule and tickets page today.
Barberry Farms is just 2 minutes and White Gate Farm is just 30 minutes from our door. Make your farm dinner an overnight stay and enjoy a continuation of great local food during breakfast at the Scranton Seahorse Inn.
It’s great to be in good company.
