Fodor's Expert Review Bahama House Inn

Dunmore St., Dunmore Town, Harbour Island, Bahamas

Editor's Note: This property is currently undergoing renovations.

Originally deeded in 1796 and built by Thomas W. Johnson, Briland's first doctor and justice of the peace, this handsome seven-bedroom B&B, in a garden filled with bougainvillea, royal poincianas, and hibiscus, thrives thanks to the loving preservation work of genial innkeeper John Hersh. Each guest room is sweetly furnished with a distinctive array of antiques and local artwork, and overlooks either the harbor or garden. A favorite is the Harry Potter Room, tucked under the stairs but much more spacious than you'd imagine with its vaulted ceiling. Enjoy an alfresco full breakfast every morning on the verdant deck.
