We're from Boston and take our annual vacation in April, just as winter is coming to an end. We used to select a new spot - in Florida, Mexico and the islands - each year but have chosen to return to Anna Maria Island and the Harrington House for the past 5 consecutive years. Back in 2011, on our first... More

I stayed in the small but beautifully appointed Carriage 5; it provided a quiet and private space with an excellent bed. The staff could not have been nicer and the facilities are immaculate and charming. This is not fancy or modern, you pay extra for the superb location. The beach is picture postcard gorgeous on a sugary, fairly empty beach;... More

Having used B & B's on most of our travels I cannot rate this one as anything but average. I think the owners are using the location as their selling point. The room needed a serious remodeling and updating. The furniture was just old not antique and looked like it came from a garage sale. In the bathroom the paint... More

The location of the B&B (on the beach) and the hospitality offered by the staff are the main reasons why this location is a 5 out of 5. First the location. The back doors of the B&B is approx 50 yards from the water. There are tables, chairs and lounge chairs on the back patio that overlook the water. Just... More

My husband and I celebrated our 31st Wedding Anniversary last week with a trip to beautiful AMI. We had the good fortune to stay at the Harrington House for 5 very special days. I cannot say enough about this B&B. The staff were so warm and friendly and the location directly on a beautiful beach cannot be beat. The guests... More

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.
