Modern comfortable stay in a convenient location - only a couple blocks from the beach or Washington Square. Breakfast was amazing! On our checkout day, we were still invited to use chairs, bikes, outdoor shower and to have afternoon tea. As is common with most old houses, we could hear other guests from our room but not to any great... More

If you're looking for doilies and Tiffany lamps, then stay at one of the many other more traditional Victorian Bnbs in town. At the Harrison you'll find the grandiose charm of Victorian but with modern and luxe furniture and finishes. The owners Kelly and Andrew are incredibly gracious hosts! They went the extra mile but did so effortlessly and with... More

Spent four days at The Harrison and it was absolutely perfect! The décor is beautiful, the food is great, and the location can't be beat. Andrew, Kelly and the rest of the staff go out of their way to make sure you're having a great time. This is our new go-to for a romantic weekend getaway!

The room was tasteful and very comfortable, breakfast was delicious, and the location really can't be beat. We also loved the free snacks and tea time. Extra credit for picking me up on the hotel's bike when I got a flat tire way out by... More

Finding 5 star accommodations in a seaside community can often be a challenge. Needless to say we were thrilled to find The Harrison. Kelly and Andrew know what discerning travelers look for and deliver exactly that.

If you need something, its already there. If they don't have it, they will find it for you!! You are a quick block and a... More

My wife and I cannot say enough about this gem. Everything from the location to the decor, the breakfasts and the highly personalized service. We felt as if part of a family in a very good sense. Andrew is awesome....helped us get into just the right restaurant when there would have been not a chance otherwise, and figured a free... More

The Harrison is a beautifully renovated property in a perfect location. Once we parked, we walked or biked the rest of our weekend. Room was beautiful and comfortable. Breakfast was delicious! Loved sitting on the front porch and having a cocktail before walking to dinner. Can't wait to go back!
