Really nice place and people. Pros are the views and beaches, cons are the distance from the city (we tried to use the T but couldn't park, so drove), the aircraft noise (but I suppose everyone in Boston gets this) and not having en-suite. It was a cheaper option and we had a nice stay. Probably 'average' for us, but... More

This was our first stay at a Bed and Breakfast. That being said, the Harrington House B&B was beautiful. We had a fantastic view of the harbor from our room. It is within walking distance to several good eateries. The rooms and the hotel were very clean and well maintained. It was less that a 15 min drive in to... More

From the warm welcome late at night to the hug goodbye, our stay at Harrington House was exceptional. We arrived late due to a flight delay but our welcome could not have been warmer. After a brief tour of the house we were offered coffee and home made cookies and shown to our room. We slept soundly in a warm,... More

My wife and I arrived at Harrington B&B and, as others have said, we were greeted as guests not customers. Maggie gave us a guided tour of the home and provided us with everything we would need for our three day stay. Our room had a great view of Boston Harbour. The breakfasts were excellent, the homemade granola was incredible.... More

We stayed at Harrington House for two nights and were positively surprised by the cleanliness of the place and the friendliness of our host. After staying in a hotel in NY for four nights we travelled up to Boston and booked ourselves into this B&B. Upon arrival we were greeted with coffee and muffins. Joey was very welcoming and we...

Cozy, immaculately clean rooms and delicious baked goodies are just a few of the many positive words I would use to describe the Harrington House. There are also interesting books and crafts to look at, and the furnishings are antiques and vintage pieces, many with stories attached. I learned of few of them because Maggie and Joey are open, sharing,... More

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
