Great property at a super location with an exceptional staff

4.8 on September 09, 2016

Spent the last two days here and stayed in the Cottage with a great view of the gulf and the beautiful sunsets. The staff was exceptional and made sure I would not forget my stay at this wonderful property. Their breakfast each day was prepared superbly and offered several options to meet everyone's desires. Looking forward to a return visit and another very peaceful stay on the beach.


Great anniversary getaway

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.


We will visit again

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.


Beachfront Elegance

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


Lovely and relaxing place to stay on Anna Maria ISland

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!
