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... More

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!

Beautiful place, great setting, right on the beach. Clean and pretty rooms. Super comfortable bed. Watched the sunset from our balcony. The food was also amazing.

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... More

This is a fabulous spot on the West Coast of Florida, right on the Gulf of Mexico. The beach is beautiful, and is just steps away from the pool area, and the rooms. Sunsets are spectacular. The staff is very friendly, and helpful, and is well-acquainted with area restaurants. Beach Bistro, an excellent restaurant, is just a few blocks away.... More

We stayed here for two nights. This was our second stay with the Harrington House (last time we stayed at one of the Bungalows). The house is located about two blocks away from the main house. It has a carport (which is great for the hot Florida sun). When you walk through the main door you are in the dining... More

Harrington House is exactly as the description reads. The property is well supervised and maintained. Breakfast is served each morning with choices for several hours. Drinks and snacks are available throughout the day. Each room or suite is unique, so ask questions about thae actual size before booking. The white, powdery sand and beautiful ocean are just steps from the... More

First time at a bed and breakfast and we could not have chosen a better location. We stayed in bungolo #2 and it was perfect. The bungolos we wonderful and gorgeous. The staff was tremendous and the beach location was breath taking. We have already made reservations for September of this year and May of 2010
