We loved this experience. The owner and staff were kind, caring, and very friendly. The rooms were spotless, inviting, and cozy. The breakfasts were so wonderful with an appetizer breakfast before the full breakfast. My favorite was the chocolate, cheese Danish which was so flakey it melted in my mouth. All of the food was hot, served in a timely... More

We are so lucky to have found this B&B. Will definitely stay there again. The room is lovely, the location is excellent and the personal service is like the cherry on a sundae. Have already recommended it to several friends.

We have spent two of our anniversary getaways at Harborlight and they are the most memorable. From the amenities, to the views, to the personalized service.... what can we say??? The in-room breakfast is awesome and watching the dolphins in the cove each morning just adds to the experience.

We like to try different B&B's every time we travel, but this is one we will definitely return to! We stayed in the huge Emerald Suite on the 3rd floor and the views were gorgeous. Love that breakfast was not only delicious, but delivered to our room promptly at 9 each morning. Kathy and the staff did a great job... More

We had a wonderful stay! Room was very clean and cozy! Breakfast is brought to your room and it was great! Started with a homemade pastry and then a full yummy breakfast! Kathy was our hostess, she was very friendly and informative! Inn is located on waterfront! Very quaint!

This was our first experience with a Bed & Breakfast type setting. This place is everything it says it is and more. The inn keepers were wonderful and so helpful and knowledgeable about the area regarding things to do and places to dine. Can't wait to go back.

I had a large Oceanfront Hotel reservation in Atlantic Beach for a weekend night as we were going to a friend's wedding. The week of the wedding I realized that this hotel I had chosen was not close to the wedding venue which was at the Octagon House in Swannsboro. So I came across the Harborlight and I am so... More

My husband and I stayed one night and were expecting a nice location, but could not have imagined how nice the location, accommodation's, and breakfast were. Whether in our room, on the deck, patio, or dock it was great. From the time we walked in the front door we felt welcomed, and treated as if we were old friends. Forethought... More

My husband and I just spent the weekend at Harborlight and would highly recommend a stay to others. The views of Bogue Sound are stunning. The property is expansive and private. Our Beaufort suite was super-clean and super-large. Best towels ever! Bob and his staff strike just the right note for their guests, and we found that we were immediately... More

We plan on making this bed-and-breakfast a regular vacation of ours because of the wonderful time we had. The Emerald Suite was also absolutely beautiful with it's 180° views. Bob... More
