“Excellent view and friendly place and people”
Reviewed August 4, 2012

I loved Harrington Bed and Breakfast in Winthrop, MA. What an inviting place to stay in with Maggie welcoming you to stay. The view of the bay with the Boston skyline in the background is gorgeous especially around sunset. What a nice small town right off the main metro line and then just a hop on the bus the place is easily accesible. It's also very close to the airport. Maggie's cookies and breakfast are wonderful. Will definately be back again soon.

The house overlooks the harbor right at the Boston skyline. Has a great location, beaches are just minutes away. Maggie is very friendly and accommodating. The house is lovely and very clean.

Imagine finding affordable lodging in downtown Boston! Imagine it being on the waterfront -- with free parking, fresh air, and gorgeous views. Imagine being within walking distance of several beaches and restaurants. Imagine being right on the T system with busses and trains to take you anywhere, so you don't have to fight Boston's traffic. Imagine a beautiful old home run by the kindest, most accommodating woman. No one ever thinks about staying across the Bay from the airport, in Winthrop, but there it is, everything I've just described. This B&B has only three rooms, all are furnished with charming antiques, and each has a view of the waterfront. Don't let the outside mislead you -- it deserves a new coat of paint -- because the inside is gorgeous. Over a delicious breakfast we met a wonderful French couple from Quebec and a woman scientist from Germany, and engaged in some delightful conversation. But the real treasure was the woman who owns this B&B, who couldn't have been more helpful and sweet. She's new at the lodging process, and clearly deserves to succeed. I absolutely recommend Harrington House!!!

Room Tip: All three rooms are wonderful. There are no bad choices at Harrington House.

Innkeeper Maggie and her family helped with my picky amazing Mommy and hard working sweet sister. I'm a neighbor of this place and am so delighted that my overflow Christmas visitors were treated like gold at Maggie's peaceful seaside respite. Steps from the ferry, the view, location, price and service were great. My only complaint was how awesome Maggie's breakfast was...mom and sis were late and full to my day after Christmas brunch!

My husband and I have stayed at Harrington House two times while traveling to Boston on business. It is an inexpensive cab ride from Logan Airport. The house is located directly across the street form a ferry that is a quick trip to downtown Boston, Fanueil Hall and the financial district. The house is beautifully decorated with all modern amenities. The best part are the hosts, Maggie and Joey! Going to stay is like going to stay with family- in a good way! Maggie is a supreme chef and hostess. Breakfast is always a treat! They could not be more gracious and accommodating! I am hoping we can go back this summer and just hang out drinking ice tea on the front porch watching the sun set over Boston Harbor!
There is also a sandy beach and a running trail within walking distance. The trail goes around Deer Island and has breathtaking views of the Boston Harbor islands.
