Bahama House Inn
On an island that’s only 1.75 square miles with fewer than 2,000 people, anytime there’s a new hotel opening it’s bound to cause a stir—as did Bahama House when it opened on heavenly Harbour Island in January 2017. It’s the newest outpost from the trendy-chic folks at Eleven Experience, known for offering their clients tastefully hip elegance after a full day of bespoke adventure. Bahama House’s 11 suites are spread among a restored colonial home built in 1800, an annex, and two authentic Bahamian cottages, enclosing a freshwater lap pool, handmade tiki bar, and hot tub area. All rooms have been appointed with eclectically curated furnishings, artwork, and wall coverings, eschewing island kitsch for beach-enclave sumptuousness. While Bahama House leans more toward “soft” adventure than sister properties in Colorado, Iceland, and the French Alps, the flip-flop-wearing “experience managers” are on hand to arrange snorkeling and bonefishing excursions and paddleboard or kayak outings. Or they'll provide a fully stocked Yeti cooler for a day of simply lounging on the island’s famous pink-sand beaches.
