First of all, Harborlight is amazing!!! I am writing this because of the title above, which might be misleading. When booking the stay here, I booked the Emerald Suite (AKA the Honeymoon Suite). It was confirmed. Two months later I received a note that due to a glitch in the booking system (???), my booked room was taken by someone... More

We stayed one brief night in the Shackleford room and wish we could have stayed for more. The room was light and cheery. The jacuzzi tub was a bonus after a long day of travel. Breakfast was brought to our room at 9. We sat on the wrap around deck and enjoyed the yummy breakfast and the picturesque sound. Wish... More

Amazing B&B in a fantastic location! The Shackleford Suite was beautiful, comfortable, and just perfect! We loved all the little touches that made it feel homey: the reading nook, rocking chairs on the deck, and all of the windows that gave us a much-needed dose of Vitamin D were wonderful! We felt very welcome from the moment we arrived, and... More

A great b&b on the water. Very easy drive to the ocean at Emerald Isle. Great breakfast and great innkeepers. My wife and I loved it! Just wished there were more stores open in the off season in Swansboro and Beaufort. We will certainly recommend this place!

What a great time my wife and I had staying in the Emerald Suite at Harborlight Guest House. Perfect! Warm and cozy in January, and the sun room where we dined for breakfast gave it a springtime feel.The adjoining deck was great to walk out on and catch the rays. Breakfast was first class. They start you off with coffee,... More

We have stayed at the Harborlight Guest House several times over the last few years and have always found that the owners were warm and welcoming, the breakfasts delicious, the rooms lovely and the view outstanding. We are hoping to visit again soon. It is a gem in Cape Carteret well worth visiting.

We stayed at this B&B for the first time on the NC coast and loved it. Phenomenal breakfast in the morning, the owners are very friendly, and the location was very relaxing. You can spend the day in their great hammock or kayak around the sound. A great location for a weekend away.

The owners of this B&B have a great sense of style and comfort with their lovely accommodations. My husband and I needed to get away from the hubbub of everyday life, and decided to take a weekend trip. We were so pleased with everything at Harborlight Guest House - the breakfasts were delicious, the room was super comfortable and the... More

We've stayed at this Inn several times, and have been impressed each time. So clean, welcoming and comfortable. Debbie and Bob are so friendly and accommodating, almost like staying at a friends house. Fresh ground coffee with an excellent gourmet homemade breakfast, not just bacon & eggs. Watch some dolphins swim by, watch the boats, and what a sunset and... More

We have never experienced this before, in all of our years of travel. I made the reservation for their " honeymoon suite" 3 weeks in advance. I sent an email to confirm. They replied " see you then." The day before we left I sent ANOTHER confirming email. Less than 24 hours before we were to arrive, they emailed back... More
