Runaway Hill Inn, formerly Runaway Hill Club has been a fixture on Harbour Island for decades.

The main house of Runaway Hill Inn was an estate home built in the 1940s by a gentleman from Long Island, New York named McElroy. The property was then sold to Maud Patterson. Maud and her sister Nina Robertson, who were from Australia, converted the house to an Inn which opened in 1957. The Inn was operated successfully until the mid- 1970s.

In 1977, the Inn was closed for four years, and was later purchased by Maxine and William Miller. Roderica and Bernice Thompson, Glenroy Aranha, all native "Brilanders", and Carol and Roger Becht from the United States. The new owners began their renovations and the property opened under the name Runaway Hill Club on February 17, 1982.

Purchased again in 2004, a new phase of renovation began. The focus highlighted the importance of maintaining the integrity, charm and character of the Main House and its storied history.

Winding along the hilltop at the corner of Love and Colebrook Street is Runaway Hill Inn on 10 acres of lush grounds overlooking the world-famous pink sand beaches. The Main Dining Room and "The Bar" offer all the ambience of oceanfront dining. The property includes three buildings, the Main House with five rooms, The Courtyard with three rooms and the Villas offering two rooms and an Owner's Cottage. The Infinity House, a four bedroom beachfront home was added two years later.

Runaway Hill Inn is a hotel perched on a bluff above the calm waters of the Atlantic. On Harbour Island you find a combination of sand and sea, recreation and relaxation, supreme comfort and simple elegance. Slip into the crystal blue waters of the Atlantic and snorkel in some of the most diverse reef systems in the world, only one hundred yards from the beachfront entrance to Runaway Hill Inn.

Enjoy Bahamian-inspired dining at the Runaway Hill Inn restaurant on the seaside verandah.

The Courtyard Rooms at the Inn include three separate guest rooms. This section has the capability of adjoining each room and offers the opportunity for guests traveling together or families that wish to share a room with their kids.

Each room has a view of our small flower and herb garden that supplies fresh herbs to our restaurant. These rooms are located adjacent to the Main House.

Dinner is served daily from 6:00 pm, except Monday. The ala carte menu offers dishes using fresh, locally-grown vegetables, paired with a fine selection of meats, poultry, pasta, seafood and fish.

Chef Luc offers a "Catch of the Day", often caught that day, right off the docks and may include Grouper, Yellow or Blackfin Tuna, Wahoo, Mahi Mahi or Hogfish . Local lobster and stone crabs are an Island favorite.

Weather permitting, dinner is served on the seaside verandah with spectacular moonlight views glistening off the crashing waves. Optional indoor dining is also available.

Shoes and shirts required.
Reservations are recommended.
