“Always Great. Always”
Reviewed 14 June 2013

For 15 years we've stayed here. The staff is always so nice and they go out of their way to make you happy. If you want privacy, they leave you alone. If you want conversation, they are there for you. This morning, Chef Dennis made these out-of-this-world plate of french toast.

Room Tip: Some cost less only because of the lack of view. Choose a room that fits your budget and enjoy!

This was our first time staying in Anna Maria Island at the Harrington House. We stayed in one of the carriage rooms. It was affordable and a very pleasant get away. We enjoyed the delicious breakfast every morning, staying right on the beach and taking walks along the beach. We appreciated the bed and breakfast having beach chairs and towels for us to use. the Staff were very friendly and the afternoon chocolate chip cookies were a real treat. this was a cozy relaxing get away for my husband and I. very enjoyable indeed!

we spent three days at harrington house and got married on our second day, in the pagoda right outside the main house.
our room was veranda, which offers you a gorgeous view of the gulf.
it´s a more upscale and quiet area, so expect to have a very relaxing time there. the people who run the place show a lot of attention to detail and are very friendly.
we hope to come back for an anniversary.

My second time at Harrington House - I enjoyed it even tho I was a solo traveller.
My husband was too busy and I just wanted a few days of sun and surf. The rooms
are cleaned to a very high standard and the staff are welcoming. I love a room where I
can just patter out to the beach so Dodt and Huth are my choices.

Just a few days on the beach with delightful hostesses and delicious breakfasts-- a perfect start to our days-- was a nice little break from early spring in New England. Loved being right on the beach for walks and also enjoyed the pool when the beach seemed a littel windy.

Room Tip: Our room was a little small but we choose it and managed just fine-- only there at night -- so can...

Recently enjoyed an all-too short stay at this quaint B&B on Anna Maria Island. We were in Dodt House #2, which is a two bedroom one bath first floor unit. Very spacious living room/dining room/full kitchen area with a lovely view of the beach. Also had a covered patio outside facing the beach where we relaxed and read. I LOVED the old Florida charm of our unit - from the vintage rattan furniture to the heart of pine ceilings. Daughter - not so much - as she prefers more "modern, upscale" accommodations. My only complaint was with the miniscule shower. Nonetheless, we had a wonderful vacation at Harrington House, with its delicious breakfasts, friendly, attentive staff, and small but perfect-temperature pool. Definitely plan a return visit soon!
