Beachfront Elegance

5 on January 17, 2015

It was the first time staying at the Harrington House. It was far beyond our expectations. The service and kindness of the staff was excellent and gracious.


Just splendid!

A perfect romantic getaway right on the beach in the dunes! They make you never want to leave again!


Wonderful experience

4.0 on January 14, 2015

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.


Beautiful Beachside B&B

5 on January 01, 2015

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.


The most gorgeous sunset right from our room!

We will be back!


Harrington House is the best!

5 on December 21, 2014

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!


Our Wedding

5 on December 18, 2014

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.


Lovely B&B on the Gulf
