On our recent annual trip to beautiful Harbour Island, my husband and I had dinner at Runaway Hill Inn, a boutique resort we had not visited in the past.

We made our initial visit to the property one afternoon and immediately regretted not checking it out during our prior visits to Harbour Island. Runaway Hill Inn arguably has the most beautiful view of the ocean on the island. As the name implies, the Inn sits on a bluff above the majestic waters of the Atlantic. Their deck and pool areas are perfect spots to look out at the gorgeous turquoise water and the pink sand beaches below. However, don’t misinterpret the fact that they are on a hill, as it is an easy walk to their lovely spot on the beach.

The property is owned by Mark Messier. My guess is even those of you who are not hockey fans are more than likely familiar with that name. His sister, Jennifer, manages the eleven room establishment. Jennifer is a charming host, with an absolutely delightful personality perfectly suited for interaction with guests.

I don’t know whether it was planned or not, but the tables on the deck are set up in such a way to encourage conversation amongst the diners. The night we were there we had wonderful conversations with fellow diners at two other tables. Perry took their pictures, and we exchanged email addresses so he could forward the photos on to them after we returned home.

The only critique I might have regarding the outside deck is possibly a little more light would be in order, as once the sun went down it was a bit dark.
