We visited this B&B for the first time this winter and it exceeded our expectations in every way. From the very pleasant and helpful staff to the delicious breakfasts overlooking the gulf to our exceptionally clean and well appointed bungalow we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and we have already booked for next year.
My Daughter brought my Wife and I to see the Palmetto Riverside Bed and Breakfast for her Wedding location, we were taken immediately with the Southern Charm and Beauty of the B&B inside and out . Let me the Happy Dad of my Beautiful Princess tell you her Dreams came true this last week end .She had the wedding of her dreams. The Food was Fantastic , from the sausage gravy to the Belgium Waffels but the the two wonderful people Wim and Mieke make you feel like you have been with long lost friends and were so accomidating to us and our needs . They are Wonderful host and you can tell that they enjoy meeting and taking care of their Guest . I promise I will be back to see my friends in the future. Thanks Wim and Mieke for everything.

We have stayed here a number of times the week before Thanksgiving with my sister and husband who live in Fl. My husband and I have stayed in a number of B and B's over the years and The Harrington House is the most pleasant. The breakfasts are wonderful, the coffee is good ( I love a good cup of coffee ) The breakfast room overlooks the pool and the beach. Very tranquil! Eating around the pool is also an option. The staff is attentive and friendly. The on line pictures of the rooms are accurate and there is not a bad choice. We have stayed in a small room in the main house which I like because the living room is right outside our door along with late night cookies and tea. Excellent restaurants are near by and shops. You won't go wrong by choosing the Harrington as your B and B destination.
We stayed in "Sunset" an aptly named suite from which we watched the beautiful sunset each evening while sharing a glass of wine. My family has been living and/or vacationing on Anna Maria Island for 50+ years, and this was one of the very nicest places we have stayed. The breakfasts were wonderful, and when we decided to leave early before normal breakfast hours, the chef was kind enough to prepare a special meal for us. This website would not allow me to select "Outstanding," but I would give all five categories the highest "outstanding" rating. J. Langfitt, Myrtle Beach SC
What a lovely, friendly, and delightful find on Anna Maria Island. Everyone could not have been nicer... a beach more beautiful..... and a room more comfortable. We fully enjoyed our stay and look forward to our return.
Charm eminates from every inch of this island B&B,from the individually decorated bedrooms,with gulf views and the chef prepared breakfasts served with care by the friendly staff,to the glorious Gulf of Mexico with its white sandy beach just a few steps away through the white picket fence.Peace,tranquility,is found here in abundance,an ideal holiday destination to recharge the batteries.The wording on a sign outside says " Come as a guest and leave as a friend" embodies all that this island B&B Is about and after 20 years of visiting we can highly recommend a visit to anyone.
We stayed in bungalow #5 for 10days. It was absolutely the best place we stayed at in a long time. The bungalow was so clean and neat! The screened in porch was wonderful. The kitchen was great. The beds were comfortable. The breakfast was excellent. The chef made a special every day plus the regular menu. The folks there were so sweet and kind. We would definitely stay there again!
My husband and I live in Ohio and had our wedding at the Harrington House. The staff could not have been more helpful. They took care of everything and managed every detail to perfection. The Chef did an amazing job on the food. It was scrumptious. We plan on spending our 1 year anniversary there.
Great accommodations, warm and friendly owner and staff, uncrowded beach, and oh those sunsets (moonsets, too). Nice breakfasts, indoors or out (by the pool). Convenient to day destinations North and South.
Another Great Treat staying with "Our Friends" the staff at the Harrington House!! They keep their employees for a very long time, because they are so polite and helpful and have become like Family!! If you look on the internet, you can choose the guest room you would like and my husband and I have selected the same room for atleast 15 times!! After our Thanksgiving stayt there, we've booked our 45th Anniversary ..... Valentine's weekend at "our" Harrington House. YEA!!

Delicious breakfasts, friendly staff, great room, fantastic view - it's the second year we've celebrated our anniversary there, and we've already made reservations for next year! Love it and wish we had found it sooner!
The rooms a clean and well maintained. The staff are friendly and have good suggestions when you ask them about places to eat and things to do in the area. There are a lot of places to eat that are within walking distance, and there's a free trolley that comes by every 20 minutes that runs by a lot of the places that are further out. I would definitely recommend staying at Harrington House.
We stayed in the cottage for our honeymoon and we were welcomed with chocolate covered strawberries and they were awesome! We had a private little patio and view of the ocean. For breakfast we were served banana bread, fruit, toast, and an English muffin with a spinach sauce. Although I was unsure of the sound of it, it was one of the best breakfasts I have ever eaten. They had robes for us in the room and a heart shaped Jacuzzis. We sat out on the beach one day and they had towels for us to use and beach chairs. The staff was very nice and while we were on the beach someone came and made our bed and brought fresh towels. Excellent service and an excellent stay. We will be back. Thank you!
We have stayed in the Harrington House several times and always enjoy the close proximity to the beach (view from Huth House is perfect) and the great breakfasts in the main house. We will come back again, I'm sure.
The Harrington House has it all. Not easy to find it "all" on the beach in Florida! We were used to inland bed & breakfasts, but Harrington House know how to fit the B&B into the beach & bikini lifestyle! We bought a mug and some soaps to remember the visit but we'll be sure to tell others about the place and make a visit again in the future. Thank you for the fun escape weekend!
We were ready to book our next stay before we even left Harrington House. We couldn't have asked for a better experience. Everyone there seemed to love what they were doing. The room was perfect and breakfast was amazing. When we booked our stay there, it seemed a little expensive, but we found it was worth every penny. We are so excited to go back.
The Harrington House Bed & Breakfast exceeded my expectations for rooms, service, value, cleanliness and dining. I would go back.
We have stayed at Harrington House on four separate occasions. Each year we try to return . This is down to the friendly welcome we receive and the fabulous surroundings . We cannot praise Harrington House enough and have recommended it to family and friends.
Found this place on the web, wanted something on the island and on the beach , boy did we luck out . This place was great we stayed in the Birdsong room on the second floor with its own deck looking at the beach and the setting sun. We used the bikes they offer and road around the island. It was so nice not having to take your own stuff bikes, beach chairs kiacks, they have it all and it was all included. This was our first time there but we will be going back again next year for sure .
We have been to The Harrington House five times in the last six years and they always remember us and make us feel as if we have returned home after a long journey. The gourmet breakfasts in the morning are fantastic and the ambiance relaxing and beautiful. If visitng here is not on your bucket list, it should be!
I have been staying here for 2-3 nights once a year for the last 6 years. It is a little pricey but worth it. The breakfast is amazing. Love sitting outside watching the water and looking for dolphins. The sunsets are gorgeous. Every morning I take the sea kayaks out for an hour enjoying the peace and quite and looking for dolphins and fish. I love fishing off the beach. There is now need to pack chairs, towels, umbrellas or noodles. They have them all. In the late afternoon enjoy the best chocolate chip cookies anywhere. The island offers some great places to eat and two fishing piers. I see no reason to stay anywhere else.
