Our stay at the Harbor House Inn was lovely, as usual. We have been staying at the Inn for about 7 years now and always look forward to returning. The rooms have high ceilings, and are light and airy. Love the kitchen, has everything you need for a stay over. Thanks Paul for all your help, will be back next... More

Comfortable, clean, friendly motel just a block from the beach. Bed was quite comfy in small suite. Lots of beach chairs and umbrellas to borrow. Staff was very friendly. Good restaurants nearby. No pool. Will happily stay here again.

Everything in our hotel room was handpicked with taste and deep care. Every little detail of a pleasant home away from home was met. We were impressed beyond belief...our compliments to the owner for acheiving such success in the field of hospitality.

This place has bags of personality and makes a refreshing change from lots of bland, minimal hotel rooms. The reception staff were very helpful with... More

Every once in awhile you happen upon a hotel that is just above and beyond. Harbor House Inn is that kind of hotel. Its a small set of "cottage-like" rooms, but the rooms are so absolutely beautifully appointed that the room is perfect. Its the type of hotel that you just want to hang out in your room all day...
