“Wonderful place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 May 2009

We spent a weekend at Harrington House, and had a wonderful time. Our room was cute, neat, and very clean. Hospitality was great. The breakfast was better than any restaurant, not your usual muffin and fruit you get at most Bed and Breakfast Inns. It is right on the beach, and we ate outside and enjoyed the Gulf. We would love to go again!

Words can not express how wonderful our most recent stay at the Harrington House. My wife and I had a beautiful wedding on the beach at the Harrington House last year and decided that we would spend our anniverary weekend there every year. We are are so excited that the Harrington House will be a part of our lives every year, and then some.

The welcoming sign says "Come as a guest, leave as a friend." And that couldn't be anymore true. The owners, Patti and Mark are an absolutly wonderful couple that truly value the relationships that they build with thier guests. It is so wonderful to go on vacation and be welcomed by friends.

This year we stayed in the Carraige Suite 4. As expected, the room was very clean and inviting. We were so happy to have a balcony view of such a gourgous beach. My wife and I even took ou the bikes that they have on the property and rode all over the beautiful island. This is truly a wonderful Bed and Breakfast, and it is well deserving of all of the accolades that they are recieving. Can't wait to come back!!!

After having visited Siesta Key and Longboat Key previously, we decided to try Anna Maria Island and we were not disappointed. We stayed at the Harrington House for five nights and had an absolutely fabulous time. The staff is friendly and welcoming (Ann is a delight) and breakfast was awesome--a cut above the typical breakfast but not gourmet. The atmosphere is relaxing and the facility is uncrowded. We stayed at the Imperiore House, which has its own small lagoon-style pool that was perfect for afternoon drinks and a dip. We also had delicious meals at the City Pier and the Sandbar. We'll definitely be going back to AMI and to the Harrington House!

Stayed 2 nights in Bungalow 2. The accommodation was extremely comfortable, spacious, clean and very well equipped. Breakfast was over in the main house. This was served in a more formal dinning room and consisted of cereals, and cooked breakfast. The weather was not great so therefore could not appreciated the location which was directly on the beach. Ate at Mr Bones, very small restaurant would advise you to book as was very popular. The food we had was indian and fantastic. Would liked to have stayed longer and would recommend the B & B to anyone.

We had a wonderful time at this Bed and Breakfast. It was my third time there and I wouldn't stay anywhere else.
Our accommodations, this time, were in the Huth House, Suite #4. It was very comfortable, clean, and nicely decorated and furnished. Right on the beach with a private entrance and deck area that allowed us to feel as if we were all alone in paradise. Also right next door to a very nice restaurant, The Beach Bistro.
The breakfast our first day was a tasteless, but ample omelette, but the second mornings French toast made up for it.
The service and personnel were both excellent and they saw to all our needs and they provided a friendly and homey atmosphere.
Bicycles and kayaks were available for our use and we took advantage of the bikes and had a great time riding around the Island.
We would recommend and will stay there again.

My wife and I have just stayed a second time at Harrington House Bed and Breakfast. We are experienced travelers, especially in the Mediterranean and the Nordic countries, with their different styles of coasts and beaches, and have long sought to find a place nearer to Massachusetts ‘to call our own.’ We have miraculously found it in Harrington House, an oasis of calm, quiet, and natural beauty. My wife grew up in a beach hotel in Denmark, and Harrington House, in a garden by the sea, fits her like hand in a glove—which we don’t have to wear. We looked long and hard for a place that gave a sense of home with a solicitous, friendly, and unobtrusive regard for the guests. We have already reserved ‘our’ room for next year—and will be doing so for years to come.
