Oyster Review Summary

Photos and Review by Oyster.com Investigators

Pros

  • Located in a quiet neighborhood near many attractions
  • Each cozy room features different decor
  • Rooms have updated flat-screen TVs
  • Free bike rentals makes getting around easy
  • Free goodie baskets with snacks, juice, and bread
  • Free Wi-Fi

Cons

  • No pool, but the resort is close to the beach
  • Some shower fixtures could use a good cleaning

Bottom Line

Harbor House Inn looks like something out of a Disney fairytale: Charming and quaint, this 17-room bed and breakfast-style inn sits in a quiet residential area just minutes from West Beach. All rooms are decked with antique furnishings and unique decor. Some studios are more modern, with big upholstered sleigh beds and intricately decorated bathrooms, while others have a homey, but more basic, feel. Guests are welcomed with a free breakfast basket, and can help themselves to free bike rentals to ride the town. Although the inn has no pool, it's close to the beach and a slew of tourist attractions, such as Stearn's Wharf.
