Season's Greetings from the Harraseeket Inn! Hard to believe the holidays are upon us and 2019 is drawing to a close.  We've had a great year and hope you have, too. Sparkle Weekend just gets better and better every year, and it was great to see all the familiar faces and be a part of the festive reunions that take place annually among friends and family here at the inn.  If you've never been to Freeport in December, or enjoyed the festivities of Sparkle Celebration, you should make a special trip just to get in the holiday spirit.

We offer gift certificates in any amount, good for lodging or meals, and there's NO expiration date!  What could be any easier than that?  Just call our front desk at 800-342-6423 and we'll send them out the next day to you or directly to the recipient.  There's still plenty of time to get them in the mail and our tavern chefs are standing by to prepare your favorite people their favorite meal.
There are lots of fun things happening this time of year in Freeport. LLBean's Northern Lights Celebration is ongoing until December 31, see the link below. What better way to celebrate the season than to spend the day whittling down your shopping list in Freeport Village and then sharing "treasure hunting stories" with friends over afternoon tea, buffet lunch or a leisurely fireside supper in our Broad Arrow Tavern?

  Christmas tavern
  This holiday season we're continuing a special tradition at the Harraseeket Inn. We've put up the Christmas tree decorated with ornaments brought by YOU.  If you want to be a part of this special tradition, the next time you visit for a meal or for an overnight stay, whatever time of year it is, bring along an ornament we can display on what has become YOUR Christmas tree. Make sure the ornament has your name and the year you first visited us on it.  We started out with a tiny tree on top of the piano years ago but this gorgeous tree has become the biggest and most popular of all, located in our Drawing Room. Can you spot your ornament on this year's tree?
Christmas Tree!
