This charming spot was incredible. Quiet, but close to restaurants, beach, etc. Incredibly well decorated and outfitted with everything you'd need. I fell in love with this place. First trip here. Peaceful, comfortable. We shall return for sure.

Hotel's Favourite
I highly recommend the Harbor House Inn. From the moment my wife and I arrived, we felt welcomed at this very charming hotel. The owners and staff are very friendly and helpful. I cannot emphasize enough how the hospitality made our stay so much better. We had a deluxe queen studio room which was very clean upon our arrival. The room was very nicely decorated and had everything we needed. There are some nice, subtle touches that show that the owners really care about the comfort of their guests including free Netflix, new slippers for the room (really nice touch!), cordless mobile phone charger, and extra towels. The air conditioning and heating worked great. The room was a perfect size for my wife and me. A major bonus is that bicycle's are available for guests to use. I'll be honest. I was expecting low-end beat up bikes but the the bicycles are new and in excellent condition. Beach chairs and towels are also available for guest use. The location is fantastic--just a block to the beach. Free parking. We got a great rate booking directly on the hotel's website (it was lower than any third party website that I checked). In short, we had a great stay and we look forward to returning. Highly recommended.

Really enjoyed our stay here. The price was reasonable, the location convenient, the rooms were really clean, large & had kitchen extras! The staff was very helpful & friendly. The biscotti in the office was a nice extra touch!

Cody and his mom who own the place are TREMENDOUSLY nice. We had a great time. Definitely recommend upgrading to one of the bigger rooms with a kitchen. They went above and beyond to ensure our stay was wonderful. Thank you :) see you soon!
