Our "home away from home"

4.6 on July 17, 2014

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!


My favorite place to stay on The Gulf

4.8 on July 13, 2014

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.


Bed, Breakfast, & Gulf Beach

4.6 on July 13, 2014

When you arrive at the Harrington House, your shady parking space leads to an arbor-covered entrance, and a reception room with comfortable furniture. Follow the coffee aroma to the breakfast room and on thru to the patio where shade covered umbrella tables overlook the white sandy beach. Awaiting you are delicious breakfast specials, fresh fruits and juices, or "or you name it" prepared by well known chefs, served by friendly staff; in a quiet and tree shaded area. Wait, there's more. Preferring a laid back environment, we chose the 4-unit Huth cottage just a short walk from the 3-story main house. Huth cottage includes on-site parking, a kitchen and sitting room for guests and is located on the wide beach with tall trees and sea grass providing privacy. A wonderful place to chat with friends around an outdoor table and chairs! Think of the accommodations as a comfortable retreat where listening to the waves at night is as relaxing as strolling on the beach. The Harrington House offers much more; the "home away from home", a gracious , old Florida ambiance; and a small community atmosphere. Check out a bike or other water equipment and in summer months enjoy the clear, sparkly tropically-tinged 90-degree water.l It's easy to get to..... Tampa International and rent a car; if you are living in the Tampa area, best of all, it's a 50 minute drive from home. Our visits to the Harrington House have been "no fuss", really refreshing, and totally welcoming by the best staff anywhere. BP, Safety Harbor, FL


A hidden gem

4.6 on July 11, 2014

Nestled in the unassuming beauty of AMI is the B&B gem of Harrington House. This was our second visit in four years, and it won't be our last. The facilities and staff create a very comfortable, no-pressure opportunity to just enjoy the surroundings. Clean, well-appointed rooms; and friendly attentive staff members provide an ideal getaway experience.


A wonderful place to enjoy the beach

4.8 on July 10, 2014

Great rooms just footsteps away from the beautiful beaches of Anna Maria Island. This is our 2nd year staying there and we love it! Great service, fabulous breakfast with nice bikes for riding around the island. You'll love every minute and wish you could stay forever. Highly recommended.


A most relaxing stay!

4.8 on July 05, 2014

Stayed at Harrington House on a road trip of Florida to find a location as a respite from our long winters. Found it on Anna Maria and especially at Harrington House. A beautiful beach location with a delicious breakfast and a relaxing ambiance that we so needed. Birdsong room had a covered porch with direct view of the gulf and beach. Looking forward to our next stay.


Beautiful and peaceful

We stayed in a bungalow and it was perfect ..updated and plenty of room. It was close to the Harrington House for the scrumptious breakfasts. The staff was so so friendly and the breakfast food choices were varied and prepared with taste and presentation in mind . The coffee was rich and flavorful, there was always a smile. I thoroughly enjoyed the free bicycles, kayaks , lounge chairs and umbrellas. I can't forget the fresh baked cookies in the lobby every day. And...they prepared a fresh Fruit and sweet bread plate for us when we left late at night to go home. I still miss the hospitality , beach and amenities of the Harrington House after having been back home for two weeks!


It is always our little paradise, peaceful, relaxing, very friendly atmosphere and delicious breakfasts. You wake up in the morning, look at the beautiful ocean and refuel your soul.

So pleasantly surprised.....

4.6 on June 12, 2014

We were on Anna Maria Island for a wedding recently and made reservations at Harrington House sight unseen. What a pleasant surprise to find a delightfully small B and B right on the beach! The views were outstanding, the breakfasts delicious and we couldn't have asked for more! We would definitely recommend this spot to others!


My stay at the Harrington House.
