This is a special place for a special event. We were married at the Sandbar and stayed here with several family members. Loved the breakfasts, the staff, the amenities of the bikes and kyaks. Only one recommendation is to have some bubble bath or bath beads in the heart shaped tub. :)

Our second visit to Harrington House was as good as our first. A very comfortable clean B&B set on the most beautiful beach. A very relaxed quiet atmosphere that helps you unwind and refresh. Yes, some of the rooms in the main house are small but the location and ambience will draw us back again. The Veranda room has a... More

What's not to love? The property is ON the beach. It's well kept and very clean. Everyone from the owner to the breakfast servers to the housekeepers to the grounds keeper was warm and welcoming. We truly felt cared for by everyone. The breakfasts aren't just served by delightful folks. They are delicious and filling. And it was the little... More

Stayed four nights in the Garden Room. Very clean and cozy and loved the private outdoor space! Decor was quaint and very vintage. Only negative was the daily service was a bit intrusive in that she came when we were just getting ready in the morning and asked her to come back in an hour and she was back in... More

Don't get me wrong, the views from Huth 1 are beautiful, right on the beach. The staff are friendly. But that is what is to be expected for $400++ per night. However, the towels are worn, carpet needs to be cleaned and bathroom needs painting. We were disappointed.

My hubby & I stood 1 night & we loved it! We stood in the Veranda room & the Gulf view was absolutely breathtaking. I was impressed at how close we were to the water & the sounds of the surf at night- that i will never forget. The room had a cozy feeling & the radio w/pre-programmed classical tunes... More

Stayed 6 nights at Huth House, a separate property a 5 min or so walk away from the main inn. Our room was large, and the house had a sitting area, mini kitchen for all guests, and patios on the beach. We needed to travel to the main inn for breakfast each morning. Didn't get back during the day to... More

We have stayed at Harrington House on several occasions, always feeling it was a lovely experience, but not this time. $400++ per night for a tired room is not a good value in this case. I've had enough of "quaint", but if you need a dose, be my guest - or, ahem, theirs. Look, they have been charging significant rates... More

Lovely setting on the beach, friendly and charming but the rooms are very small, even the top tier choices. At the price, it wasn't great value We stayed in two different rooms, the top tier oceanview with a fireplace and one in the main house. Both were very small without closets. The setting is magical however, right on the beach

They have done a great job renovating their bungalows. We have stayed in two of them and have loved both. The addition of the pool for the bungalows is great for some wilder times away from the main house. Breakfast is always delicious but wished there be a bit more variety. Enjoy sitting poolside and seeing the beautiful beach as... More
