My wife & I do not have enough nice things to say about Herrington Harbor, or its courteous and professional staff. While staying with my parents in Maryland over the summer, we accidentally stumbled upon this unexpected gem and cannot praise the charm of this friendly little resort. It is such a beautiful place and would be a great place for a wedding, or a romantic get-away with the one you already did marry (or even for those couples with no such intention). The beach is isolated from the heavy crowds of those nearby public beaches and it has every amenity imaginable. However, what I wish to praise most is the employees that work at Herrington Harbor and we found this out by accident just how kind and capable they are when needed. While returning the beach with our four month old son, we accidentally left behind our diaper bag - which also included a very expensive Nikon camera - and that was when the Herrington Harbor team sprung into action! My wife went one way, and I went in another in search of the bag. After a little search, unbeknownst to eachother the manager of the Mango’s restaurant (Loretta) and the parking lot attendant quickly connected with Tom, the head of security, on a walkie-talkie and within minutes our bag came back to us just as soon as Tom’s golf cart turned the corner and returned it to our wife … and then of course he returned my baby son and wife back to me as well since had split up in our search! After such a scare, it is so refreshing to meet such honest, kind people and make an already memorable visit to Harrington Harbour even more enjoyable. It was also such a relief to get the camera and those precious baby pictures back! Thanks so much again to the staff and we hope to return back to Harrington Harbour very soon.
