My husband and I recently stayed at the Harrison for our 5 year wedding anniversary. We were definitely impressed! Andrew and Kelly were wonderful hosts. The breakfast was probably the best we have ever experienced at a B&B. Afternoon tea and scones were equally as good. We always made sure we were back at the house late afternoon so we... More

"We loved the property. Very comfortable bed. Warm & friendly hosts. We will most definitely return this summer. Love the guest pantry.” We have already booked our next stay at this property. Should also mention the breakfast and all baked goods were amazing! All staff were attentive and available if anything was needed. Can't wait for our next stay.

My fiance and I had a wonderful two night stay at The Harrison. The staff was very welcoming, the room was great, and the breakfast was delicious. The location is very convenient, only a few blocks from the beach and the main town area. We also loved having bikes and beach towels to use. We will definitely be back!

Beautiful accommodations, great location, delicious food, kind and friendly owners and staff. The room and hospitality were both wonderful. The owners did a tremendous job of creating a very classy and modern space that in no way felt "stuffy." The building itself is gorgeous and blends in nicely to the Victorian surroundings. Again, a very classic looking exterior without being... More

I am so glad we stayed with Kelly & Andrew. They did a great job with their new venture. The interior is so well decorated, we told them of some restaurants in town that need their professional help. The food was great; two choices in the morning. Tea, coffee and cake in the afternoon. We had plenty of room in... More
