We stayed at Harrington House last summer for our Honeymoon and had the most amazing time ever. The property is what I would describe, the sort of wooden tiled house I saw in all the films growing up, which is exactly what we wanted. We traveled into Boston most days and found the commute was cheap and so easy, there... More

We stayed at Harrington House in May 2014 - the accommodation is great, it's really comfortable and like a home from home. We loved coming back after spending days in Boston and being able to get a quality coffee at any time. Sitting in the living room looking out at Boston was wonderful and really added to a relaxed holiday... More

It was a step back in time. Just a lovely place. Didn't realize how much I would love not being plugged in to the world. I really hope to go back and stay longer when the ferries are open. Although seeing the angry winter sea was breathtaking too.

From your room, a view of Boston Harbor, and the Boston skyline beyond. Walk 2 blocks, in the opposite direction, and you are on the Atlantic Ocean. All within minutes of the heart of Boston. Visiting Maggie and Joey is like visiting family - only way, way better. Whether they are experienced innkeepers or not, they sure do it beautifully... More

We only stayed one night before our flight back to Germany, and we chose Harrington House because of the good reviews and because it is so close to Logan Airport. Pity it was only one night, we were sorry to leave - Harrington House is such a great place! We stayed in the Boston Harbor Room, a spacious room with... More

My family truly enjoyed our stay. The house was dainty and delightful. The hosts are warm and welcoming. The time and attention to detail did not go unnoticed. We were welcomed with home baked cookies which were much appreciated after the road trip. We woke up to an assortment of home baked goods along with their signature granola mix which... More

Maggie and Joey are the best host you'll ever find in a B&B. They make you feel at home with their daily breakfast of home made muffins, fresh fruit and cereals. We rented the room with the view of the Harbor and it was worth it. The shared bathroom was okay for me. They have fresh towels and everyday. The... More

The hosts greeted us with a warm beverage after we arrived late in the evening and the let us relax before they showed us to our very comfortable room. They truly made us feel like we were in a home away from home. Allow some time to chat with them and enjoy the view of the Harbor.

As with a previous reviewer we had been planning a trip to New England in the Fall and wanted to use Boston as a start and finish point. Hotels in downtown Boston were very expensive and had fairly indifferent reviews. You don't need a car in Boston with excellent public transport, so staying on the outskirts seemed a solution. A...
