The bungalow we rented was just what it said it would be. Remodeled and great. The inn keeper went out of his way to help us. The breakfast was delicious. Great place to stay.

Had your own beach right outside complete with lounge chairs and umbrellas. Staff was great and the food was excellent.

We stayed two nights at the Harrington House in suite #5 in the Carriage House.
Overall, we enjoyed the true B & B experience while at the beach. The hostess, Ann, is so welcoming and very warm and genuine. The breakfasts are excellent. The first morning, we had fresh blueberry pancakes with a side of fruit, a choice of juices and coffee. The second morning, we had scrambled eggs with peppers, onions, ham and cheddar cheese with homemade oatmeal- bread toast. All delicious. And there were warm chocolate chip cookies each afternoon at 4!

They provide beach lounge chairs, "noodles" and umbrellas, kayaks and bikes for exploring the island.
Our room was rather small but clean and the bed was very comfortable. Our building had a common area with a dining table for 4, a sofa and chair, and a large fridge, microwave, sink and cabinets. There was a blender and table service for 4. A word of note, though - all of the Carriage House rooms are on a second floor, accessed from an outdoor stairway that numbers 20 steps. My husband found this very difficult due to a bad knee and we had to plan our trips up and down!
I would describe the place as "shabby chic", with some of it a little tired looking but overall, very warm and charming.

Although we did not expect to stay overnight at Anna Maria Island we wanted to check out The Harrington House. It was very peaceful and were surprised at the extra amenities: kayaks, bicycles, etc. included in the price. Unfortuntaly we were only able to stay one night and could not fully enjoy our stay.

We had a wonderful time at Harrington House. It is absolute perfection from the moment you arrive until you must sadly leave. We would have stayed much longer if we could!

We spent 3 nights here after working in Fort Myers. It had been a busy few days and we were able to relax as soon as we walked into Harrington House. The staff were charming, the location perfect for early morning walks along the beach to work up an appetite for the lovely breakfasts. Lots of attention to detail from our name on the bedroom door, to relaxing music playing on a CD in the room when we arrived, and beach equipment to borrow for a day in the sun.
