Although this B&B is a bit off the main road it is well worth the visit. It used to be a restaurant. We had a room on the top floor. It was very spacious, well appointed and quiet. Bob is an excellent host. Breakfast was excellent, served on the deck outside our room. Breakfast was specifically at 09:00. It would... More

We generally want to be on the beach when staying at the beach, but decided to try this highly recommended inn on the bay. It was indeed lovely and only a short drive to the beach, but it was not the beach. That being said, the host was most accommodating, the breakfasts lovely, and the room itself (Morehead Suite) was... More

Plans to greet my son on his deployment homecoming changed at that the last minute and we needed a place to stay for one night. We hunted for a B&B but all seemed to be booked. Due to someone else's misfortune, there was a cancellation and we were able to book the Morehead suite over the phone during our drive... More

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.
