This bed and breakfast is ideally located - minutes away from the Bogue Inlet Pier, Hammocks Beach State Park and excellent dining in Swansboro. The view from our room was fantastic - it overlooked the sound and intracoastal waterway and the sunset. The breakfasts were delicious (served on our deck outside our room so we could enjoy the view), the... More

We stayed in the Morehead Suite for 3 nights on the May Special (3rd night was free). Harborlight has been on our B&B "bucket list" for several years but we've always felt the rates a bit too high. The special made it reasonable. The scenic location and the view cannot be beat! Sunsets from the Morehead Suite's covered porch were... More

We loved the Harborlight and Kathy spoiled us each morning with the most incredible breakfast! We had planned on doing a lot of kayaking the weekend we were there and especially liked the fact that we could put our boats on the water right there. Would highly recommend the Harborlight Guest House to anyone.

My boyfriend and I stayed in the Carteret Suite at the Harborlight Guest House BnB. The location of the BnB was amazing. It was right off the water which was relatively calm--great for fishing off their pier--we caught 3 fish :) The suite was very spacious, brightly lit when all the blinds were open and had everything we needed--even a...

My wife and I checked in on a Friday and checked out on Sunday. What a fantastic time we had! The owners, Debbie & Bob could not have been better. Extremely clean room! We had the suite " Beaufort" better than a 5 star hotel. The views are incredible! Beautiful sunsets and sunrises. The breakfast was amazing!! Plenty of things... More

We spent a couple of days at the Harborlight Guest House and had a great time. Although we hoped to see the sunrises and sunsets, the weather did not cooperate. We stayed in the Emerald on the top floor and it was awesome. Kathy was there most of the time, and she was very personable. She made us feel at... More

A true gem. If you are fortunate enough to stay at Harborlight, you are guaranteed an amazing stay. Everything from the location and setting to the breakfast is like nothing else. I couldn't find a single negative, it's perfect. I highly recommend you schedule a private boat tour with Darryl. He is extremely knowledgeable of the area and it's nice... More

Spent 5 days and nights with HarborLight and found it quiet good. The building is dated, but that being said all furnishing, decor and flooring are updated and well maintained. The room was cleand and spacious for us. I found the overall smell to be a little strong, not sure what it was other than a air freshner of some... More

My husband and I experienced our first stay here, and I could not have been more satisfied. As soon as we pulled up to Harborlight, I immediately thought of the movie "The Notebook" which makes so much sense since Nicholas Sparks lives relatively close to this location. This B&B knows exactly what guests want and what makes them feel like... More

Had a wonderful time staying at the Harborlight Guest House. Even though it was the middle of February and much of the east coast was covered in snow, the Harborlight was a wonderful, peaceful, beautiful place to stay, and warmer than most of the surrounding areas! The scenery is just gorgeous, with lots of space on the property to go... More
