At a Glance

The intimate Runaway Hill Inn is a peaceful bed-and-breakfast on the beach.


The intimate Runaway Hill Inn is a peaceful bed-and-breakfast on the beach that is owned by former Ranger hockey wonder (and Stanley Cup winner) Mark Messier. The building’s British-colonial dormers, backed up by numerous original details, dominate the architecture. In winter, a crackling fire warms the entrance.

Each of the bedrooms is different, giving the impression of lodging in a private home—which indeed it once was. The place isn’t fancy, but it’s perfectly comfortable. Each of the rooms is different (and named after Messier family members)—one has a pretty painted Cuban tile floor, there are travertine floors in the villas. At least one has a fireplace. Some have their own terraces with teak furniture. The biggest accommodation is the four- bedroom, oceanfront home with views of the famous Harbour Island pink sand from every room.

This is a good option for couples that expect tidy rooms near the beach but who don’t need much pampering. And families or groups since the villas can accommodate a large brood and the courtyard rooms can be joined to create multi-bedroom spaces.

Who Should Stay

Travelers who enjoy a serene, understated sensibility and who don’t need round-the-clock pampering and amenities. Those looking for glitz or glamour should book elsewhere.
