Reviewed May 23, 2014

Had a wonderful time at the Harrington House. Excellent, friendly staff with knowledge of the island and what it had to offer. Clean, charming room with its own balcony was a plus. Breakfast was excellent!!! The beach was was very not crowded at all. Had an enjoyable, relaxing stay. Will return.

This is our 5th time there and we are never disappointed. Peaceful, clean, well run with great staff, and right on the beach. Their chef does an excellent job of preparing breakfast between 7 and 10am. And you have the ocean for a backdrop just steps away. Most of their staff have been there forever, so that says something about the management right there. If you think the cost is high, then remember a great breakfast is included, they have beach chairs and umbrellas, and if you just want to relax in the sun all day on an uncrowded beach this is all you need. We go for dinner at some great restaurants just 5 minutes away, but the rest of the time we relax right there.

Room Tip: A room with a view of the ocean is well worth the extra money.

First time on Anna Marie Island and The Harrington House was the perfect place to stay at. We roomed at the Huth house, which is located a few minutes walk up the beach from the main house. Clean room, huge shower and jacuzzi tub, and nice patio with beach access and beautiful sunset view!
The breakfast every morning was fantastic and the staff was outstanding. The only complaint we had was that the bicycles they have for use there are in pretty bad shape and could use a little maintenance.
We hope to go back to celebrate many anniversaries!

Room Tip: Huth House is great if you want a little privacy from the main house.

We are delighted you enjoyed your stay at Harrington House. Thank you for bringing to our attention the condition of the bicycles -- it doesn't take long for the sea air to have its impact on anything metal. We are keeping a better eye on them and will be replacing the worn out ones soon.

The Harrington House B&B was highly recommended by a friend who visits regularly, and we visited in mid-May for a weekend. It was wonderful. Very peaceful, quiet and tranquil. The beachfront is gorgeous and kept immaculate, the grounds are very nicely landscaped and well-maintained, and the breakfast meals were gourmet and delicious. We stayed in the "Cottage", a separate building from the main house, and is highly recommended. We will definitely go again!

Property serenely set on a quiet end of Holmes beach. Vast expanse of beach with little or no crowds. Grounds are lovely and well maintained. Staff are very friendly and accommodating, and the chef prepared breakfasts are superb. (LOVED the oatmeal bread!). Rooms were comfortable, quiet, very clean, had nice beds and linens, and even included flashlights for the beach at night. We stayed in Dodt #1, and our only concern was the size of the bathroom. For 3 days, it was fine, but for longer, we would have wanted a larger bathroom. It was, in a word, tiny. Would definitely return to this property; all else was wonderful.

We have been coming to Anna Maria Island for a number of years, most often renting a house for a week. This trip however was a much shorter stay, so we decided to look into hotels and B&B's. We were so pleasantly surprised by the Harrington House. It was a great mix of "small hotel and B&B". We were greeted warmly by the staff and our room (Birdsong) was perfect - with a large deck overlooking the gulf and endless views of the beach and water. Breakfast was delicious. They have bicycles, kayaks and beach chairs available free of charge to all guests - a nice touch. Enjoy this little enclave - it is a great place to call home for a few nights.

Room Tip: I would highly recommend spending a little more for a water view.
