I have grown so tired of stays at highly rated hotels that do not live up to my admittedly sometimes outsized expectations. The Harbor House is one place that lived up to expectations and actually exceeded them. What at first appears to be a very modest updated old motor inn is an absolute gem. The staff is efficient and kind and caring (and always ALways cleaning and straightening all over the grounds. The rooms are uniquely and individually furnished. The welcome basket is a cornucopia of goodies, inCLUding the banana bread I can vouch is homemade as, when I stopped to ask a question in the evening, I could see the fresh loaves back in the kitchen fresh from the oven. The rooms (ours anyway) were large and spacious and attractively decorated. Every time we turned around (my senior citizen mom, my sister and mysefl), we saw another thoughtful or cute or creative touch designed to make our stay more pleasant and memorable. The Harbor House Inn was an absolute delight.
