Hard to believe that we live only a little over an hour away and have never been here. We stayed at the Huth House, which is a 4-unit property about a quarter-mile up the beach from the main houses. It's a circa-1960's one-story house that's been modified into four hotel rooms. Our room (#2) was nicely appointed and was right... More

When you arrive at the Harrington House, your shady parking space leads to an arbor-covered entrance, and a reception room with comfortable furniture. Follow the coffee aroma to the breakfast room and on thru to the patio where shade covered umbrella tables overlook the white sandy beach. Awaiting you are delicious breakfast specials, fresh fruits and juices, or "or you... More

This B&B, situated directly on the beach, is so convenient to everything. I stayed for two nights to attend a wedding, and was quite pleased with my room, the amenities, and the location. They provide beach loungers, towels, umbrellas, and even sunscreen for guests to use during your stay. Breakfast was quite a bit more than your average continental offering... More

Be lulled to sleep with the sound of the gulf from your room and enjoy an uncrowded quiet beach atmosphere during the day. Breakfasts were delicious and enjoyable. A great spot to just relax. Looking forward to staying again as a respite from our long winters.

The location here is just beautiful! Walk from your room directly to the beach and watch the waves crash. If that's too much work, just soak in the pool and relax. Read a book poolside until you doze off. Re-connect with that special person as the stress of the world melts away. We run so much in our lives...and when... More

This is a lovely place. Absolutely charming. We loved it! Wonderful breakfast, great service. Fantastic location with a pool and on the beach. Peaceful and a feel of stepping back in time. We can't wait to go back!

My husband and I wanted a relaxing getaway before our first baby arrives in July. Harrington House Beachfront Bed & Breakfast was the perfect combination of relaxation and revitalization. We were welcomed with a friendly face and fresh-made cookies. I appreciated that the soda, water and snacks were priced cheap and on an honest system, sunscreen was provided and encouraged,... More

We spent 2 great nights at the Harrington House for our beach getaway. Our lovely suite had a spacious balcony facing the Gulf of Mexico which we spent most of our time on when we were not walking the beach. Harrington House has a lovely patio area by the pool where you can enjoy a yummy breakfast. The house itself... More

What I like most about the Harrington house, is the beach, comfort and casualness. Almost everywhere you look on the coast now days, it's big condo building after big hotel, after big condo building. It's becoming more rare to find "old florida on the beach".This is the harrington house. I love the sound of the waves at night, short walks... More

Outlets conveniently place for charging our electronics. And everything was well-cared for and clean. All the staff we met were pleasant and helpful. Breakfast was excellent and the coffee... More
