“Summer vacation”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

Our return visit in 7 years having first stayed in the luxury apartment. We stayed in the carriage house 2 and 5 both rooms were very comfortable with lots of charm, and attention to detail. Beds very comfortable, with excellent air con and over head fans. Breakfast by the pool and then a walk on the beach! A perfect hideaway and relaxing holiday. Would recommend the beach bistro- excellent food and choose carefully and you can have an excellent meal at a very affordable cost. We went 3 times in 6 days of holiday ! Would we change anything? Well after a long flight and drive a welcoming cool drink would be appreciated! Until next time, Harrington house, you remain a jewel in the crown!

Room Tip: The hotel is right on the beach, so you don't need to have a sea view, as its too hot to sit on...

Having been coming to this establishment for well over 15 years, it just gets better and better. Previous reviews say it all but few mention the attitude of the Staff......They are all professional, but Anne and Megan, you exemplify the word. Actualy had a few issues this trip, more of my making as I did not take advantage of extending and had to move elsewhere which was not to my liking. However, it was sorted out with the minimum of fuss and speed and actually loved where we moved to.
Being a B&B or Hotel is not an easy job as we all have different issues and preferences but judging from the ever returning repeat customers, year after year, HH obviously do it right, listen to what people want and make it happen. Not to mention that their breakfasts are outstanding and customer service is a major priority. Rare, very rare to be this consistent.
Credit where it's due. HH is in a class of its own and hard work and care has reaped the rewards for which they truly deserve. See you again on our travels.

I can't say enough about how wonderful the staff, the rooms, the views, the beach and of course, the breakfast are at this incredible secret nestled in the heart of Holmes Beach. We visit 3 or 4 times a year and it's like coming home yet, being on vacation at the same time.

OK, I will let you in on another little secret...Huth house rocks! We have stayed in Huth 1 and 2. Shooting for number 3 next time.

As always, we will be looking forward to coming back and we hope the sea turtle hatchlings all find their way to the ocean, safe and sound.

P.S. Who needs a fitness center when the ocean is 50 yards from your back door and they have bikes available for free. Enough said.

Room Tip: Huth House Rocks!

We visitied Harrington House for our honeymoon. We could not have asked for a better experience. The staff were extremely helpful. The breakfast was superb. Our room was amazing. And the bed..... was sleep magic. We can not say enough. But, the best part was our room. We stayed in Huth 3 which allowed us to walk right out on the beach. We will be back.

A wonnderful weekend away from the rat race with our feet in the sand, a drink in our hand, and a beautiful view.

Again --Harrington House provided us with a restful place for some sun and fun, rest and relaxation, and close to great food., fishing, clear water and turtle tracks.

The breakfast is always scrumptious and th oaatmeal bread made onsite is fab!

Whether you are 24, 44 or 74 this the place to be.

This facility is unique with a B & B approach in a beachside setting. Anna Maria Island / Holmes Beach is a wonderful getaway location and this hostelry offers a gracious setting for an Old Florida experience.

If you need a fitness center, cocktail lodge, upscale experience, this is not your cup of tea. But if warm, friendly attention by a quality staff, quiet surroundings, magnificent Gulf views and total relaxation is your quest, then this is your place.

It is a bit dated, bathroom was small and occasional noise overhead was noticeable but we enjoyed it for a special occasion. Suggestion: Brighten up the entry room.

Lovely weekend in the Songbird Room. A little small and somewhat pricey but second floor facing the ocean with a balcony on which we spent a lot of time. The breakfasts were wonderful (loved the homemade oatmeal toast), sufficient portions but not overdone, very tasty. Staff was awesome. Liked the availability of bikes and kayak. We will be back!

Room Tip: Best rooms are the Songbird (2nd floor facing the ocean (west) than the one on the third floor facin...
