History of Dauphin Island Harbor House

Inn History


Formerly known as the Dauphin House, the original 10-bedroom Harbor House structure was constructed over 40 years ago and has survived numerous hurricanes.  With its landmark location and peaceful view of the water looking over the bayside of the island, its reputation and appeal have grown over the decades.  

Our regular guests include the many families that return year after year for reunions, the couples that said their wedding vows here and now return with their children, the companies that provide their employees with a well-deserved retreat, the fishermen that would stay year-round if they could and of course, everyone that needs to simply relax and just stroll white sand beaches at sunset.

The new owners have taken time and effort to revitalize and modernize this cherished landmark.  Significant improvements and renovations at Harbor House include beautification and repairs to the rooms, construction of an outdoor pavilion where guests may take a retreat from the sun AND an open upstairs deck where our guests can relax enjoy the sun!
