Description

Circa 1833. Those with political aspirations may sense good vibes at this inn, once the home of a prominent representative of the General Assembly and Connecticut State Senate. Those just looking for an ideal vacation spot will find the bed and breakfast, in the heart of Madison, within convenient walking distance of beaches, shops, and restaurants. The homemade breakfasts are made with local cheeses and produce from the farmer's market; ask about cooking classes where you can learn some of their techniques. Have the ultimate romantic escape in the Madison Getaway with a fireplace, two-person Jacuzzi, sun porch, and views of both the village and gardens. Add the Couples Getaway Package to receive a bottle of wine and one-hour massage with the room. All seven guest rooms have a private bath, cable television, and Internet access. Special rates are provided for business travelers. Hike through local parks or bask in the sun on the state's longest public beach.

Oatmeal Scones W/ Hazelnuts & Cherry

These scones are a hit every time I make them. Use very cold butter. I measure butter & put freezer while measuring measuring ingredients and toasting the oats & nuts. I always say that hazelnuts make everything better and this recipe helps prove that.


Cappuccino Biscotti W/ Hazelnuts & Chocolate Chips

Regular guests that stay at the Scranton Seahorse Inn have a favorite food and make a request ahead of check in date to see if there\'s any chance it will be available. The answer is always \"of course!\". This is one of the most requested. Enjoy!


Strawberry-Rhubarb Crisp

Strawberry and Rhubarb are two of spring\'s first bounty and this is one of my favorite recipes to make in May. I serve this with fresh whipped cream. The sweet strawberries and tart rhubarb are perfect!


Rhubarb Coffee Cake with Walnut Streusal

You know I love my rhubarb. The only thing that I don\'t like about it is that the growing season for rhubarb in Connecticut is too short. I take advantage of the local harvest, including from my own garden, as much as I can. A lot of our guests here

Christmas Stay

We had the privelage of staying at Michael's wonderful Seahorse Inn for a week including Christmas. The inn was so beautifully decorated and the tree, which is where we kept our gifts, was amazing. So many lights and a special collection of sealife oranments including many unique seahorses. We were treated to many wonderful breakfasts during our stay. Michael and his mother Olive were just a delight to be around. We may make this our Christmas tradition!

InnSide Tip - Dining
We ate at many places while in town but Bar Bouchee (walking distance from the inn) was over the top special. This is a must do when in town.
