Meet the Innkeeper

Meet Michael Hafford, Pastry Chef & Innkeeper

Having spent 20+ years in management and corporate America Michael went to pastry school to pursue a life long dream. After working in some of New Haven’s best restaurants, including Zinc, he took over the Scranton Seahorse Inn in 2009.   You can count on a delicious breakfast each morning that will include ingredients from his own gardens or from the shoreline’s many farm markets.   The Scranton Seahorse Inn also participates in a farm share from nearby Bishops Orchards where a weekly supply of fresh and local ingredients is guaranteed.    Michael can also be found picking everything from blueberries and apples to tomatoes and fiddleheads all of which are used in the pastries, jams and breakfast items at the inn.

In addition to being a pastry chef, Michael is an avid gardener, hiker, cyclist, art enthusiast and traveler.   You can find him daily with his dogs Theo and Cash on the beach or one of the many trails in Madison & Guilford.  As lifelong CT resident Michael great knowledge and appreciation for all the sights to see in CT.    If you need help planning a perfect party or special night away you’ve come to the right place.
