Lovely and very comfortable

4.8 on June 11, 2015

we were impressed with the lovely home and gardens and back deck. We felt like it was a home away from home. The service was great and location terrific. We could easily walk to town and good restaurants. Thanks Adrian for a wonderful stay.


Memorial Day 2015

4.4 on June 07, 2015

We stayed here one night during Memorial Day weekend in 2015. The host is a very friendly, welcoming lady, who gave us good directions for hiking and dining in town. She is an outstanding cook and served a delicious breakfast. The room was spacious, spotless in terms of cleanliness and bright. We loved it. The only thing a visitor might want to keep in mind is that the venue is pet friendly, and the owner's dog roams freely around the house, even during dining. While we loved petting him and he is a very sweet dog, I am not sure everyone would be comfortable dining while he is under the table. The visitor must be pet friendly and open to this aspect. Overall, we loved our stay and would go back any time. Highly recommend this b&b. Gabriella

Thank you for all the kind words! We do aim to please. Just to be clear, Spencer does not have full access to the house and is never allowed upstairs in guest rooms, although guest dogs are, and I often restrict his movements during breakfast. Hope to see you again!


Great location, friendly hospitality and very pleasant environment

4.0 on May 20, 2015

Off street parking a little tight if they are at full capacity, but porch and yard is very inviting and pleasant. Not sure if they have air conditioning for summer but in mid-May the second floor was very comfortable, breakfast very good. Nice clean place

Innkeeper Response
Thanks for your review. We have been very fortunate for the most part in the cool spring weather and he garden is getting to be quite spectacular as a result. But the central air will come in handy as we move through the summer. Thanks again


Quite lovely, but...

4.6 on May 09, 2015

Overall, a delightful experience. The room (and house, in general) were beautifully appointed, spotless, and the home-made breakfast, simply delectable. Amenities including scrumptious homemade chocolate chip cookies, chocolate truffles in the room, and even a makeup remover in the bathroom, were lovely touches. My one comment: the inn keeper was a bit standoffish; she did not introduce herself (I had to ask her name after introducing myself), seemed rather distracted, and gave the impression that she preferred to be elsewhere. (She confessed that she forgot we were coming, which is hardly a crime, but in retrospect, it was emblematic of our experience.) Of course, she may have been having a bad week (we all do sometimes). I'm going to assume that was the case.

Thank you for taking time to review Harrington House and for the feedback I do apologize for my own apparent distraction. Not the norm for me so I appreciate your giving me the benefit of the doubt.


Outstanding B&B

5 on May 06, 2015

Adriane Wendell, owner, is a wealth of information regarding places to see and dine. Her breakfasts were out of this world. My husband Larry and I would definitely return if the opportunity arises that we would be going to be in that area. Quentin

It was great to meet you both and look forward to your visiting again.


Winter Escape (2015)

4.6 on February 22, 2015

My girlfriend has never been to a B&B. Valentine’s Day occurred during a long weekend, so the timing was ideal. We went to The Harrington House, which was about 75 minutes away. She absolutely loved it. Compared to other B&Bs, the property was beautiful, the kitchen was clean, and it didn’t smell like a pet. Though the bedroom was a little chilly in the morning (the region did experience an arctic blast), the house was warm and the hostess was even warmer. Adrienne was very attentive to our needs. Since dishwashers have limitations, any issue was addressed quickly. She also suggested places to see in the region. Milford is a quaint town that will be a great experience after the winter ends. The local restaurants are wonderful and the shops are charming. We have plans to return in the summer.

Innkeeper Response
Thanks, Marc, for taking the time. Remember-go stemless. Really enjoyed having you for the weekend.


Fabulous GetAway

Everything was lovely. It was a perfect weekend getaway.


Wonderful B&B in Milford

4.8 on November 09, 2014

We spent a relaxing Fall weekend at Harrington House. The Inn is immaculately kept, breakfast is delicious and Adriane is a warm, welcoming and informative host. We stayed in the Rose Room...the fireplace was cozy and romantic. The Inn is very nicely situated in town—a short walk from the downtown shopping and restaurant area and a short drive to plenty of great outdoor destinations. All in all, a wonderful place to get away. Oh, and should you find yourself there as well, please give assistant innkeeper Spencer a pat on the head for me. :) - Chris & Alisa, Harleysville, PA

We are glad that you had a great weekend! Spencer sends his love.


Ideal In-Town B&B

5 on November 03, 2014

Graciously-hosted, impeccably-maintained, lovely and restful B&B located in "downtown" Milford, a very walkable village that's only minutes from scenic spots throughout the Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area and other state parks and scenic areas of the northern Poconos. Extremely convenient to NY and Philadelphia metro areas as well as to the smaller cities and towns in New Jersey, eastern and central PA, and southern New York State, as Milford is just a few minutes from the NJ and NYS borders. Tasty, creative homecooked breakfasts. Very good value. Definitely recommended.

Innkeeper Response
Thank you for your kind review and thanks for the recommendation. Come again soon!


Weekend Getaway!

5 on November 02, 2014

My fiance and I just spent a beautiful weekend at he Harrington House. The room was beautiful and while it is an intimate setting, there was a lot of privacy for us to enjoy our time together. The room had a beautiful fireplace and the bed was outstanding! In the morning, you can smell the delicious food as you get up to enjoy your day! The breakfast both mornings were unbelievable! The hospitality at this Bed and Breakfast was the best I have ever experienced!

Innkeeper Response
Thanks for this. It was great to have you here!

Monet Room

My personal favorite, the Monet Room, has a king size bed and a working fireplace, French doors that flood the new king bed with morning light and a wicker seating area. Lots of space to relax and luxuriate in your home away from home. While a Monet poster is prominently displayed, the name is really the color of the room. The Monet room has a bathtub as well as a shower.

Thistle Room

The Thistle Room, named for the water colored block print by the late Mississippi artist, Walter Inglis Anderson, is spacious and comfortable with its four poster iron bed and separate seating area. The loveseat folds out to a single bed, so this room is particularly attractive for a 3rd person in your party.

  • Maximum Capacity: 3

Stratton Room

The cozy Stratton Room has a brass queen size bed with a new plush mattress and a full newly remodeled bath complete with tub. The walls are hung with ink drawings from my travels and oriental rugs.
