Harrington House closes its doors


HOLMES BEACH – After 31 years, the owners of the Harrington House Beachfront Bed and Breakfast in Holmes Beach will say goodbye to their final guests May 1.

The bed and breakfast has been a favorite among travelers and locals alike for more than three decades. Its final guests will be welcomed on April 30.

The property features several room options for visitors from rooms in the main house to an adjacent beachfront cottage, the Dodt Beach House with its three full-size suites, six bungalows, two additional rooms and two large penthouse-style suites.

The main house was built in 1925 of coquina block and cypress wood. In 1988, current owner Frank Davis decided to turn the 4,000 square-foot home into a bed and breakfast. Harrington House was named after Davis’ father.

Closure of the bed and breakfast was announced on the business’s social media pages on Feb. 17.

“To all of our friends – as of May 1st, 2020 the Harrington House Beachfront Bed & Breakfast will be closing its doors after 31 wonderful years. We thank you for your loyalty and friendship and all of the great memories,” the post reads on the Harrington House Facebook page.
