Harbor light was an amazing getaway! The views were great and the everyone there was super friendly and helpful. It was very quiet and secluded and there were tons of movies available to watch as well as hammocks outside to read in or just relax in. The food was good too. They first brought coffee and juice with an apple... More

Harbourlight we selected based on it's high ratings - 5 Stars, and the description of the sunsets and sunrises. The weekend exceed our expectations - it is not located in the midst of hotels & retail stores. Instead, every direction you look is a scenic, quiet view of paradise. The room was excellent, well decorated, very clean with a beautiful... More

On the day I was to check in, I received a call at 3pm (check in time), to see when I was arriving because Bob the owner had to leave for a few minutes and didn't want us to arrive and he not be there. How often does that happen? That spoke volumes. Additionally, when we arrived it was a... More

At the end of a finger of land lies the guest house, overlooking the water on 3 sides, so I'm pretty certain that all rooms have a water view. The setting is absolutely beautiful and serene. The rooms were extremely large and comfortable--the innkeepers thought of everything, right down to the umbrellas and binoculars. They have fishing equipment for you... More

We loved our stay. Great breakfast served on the porch. Spectacular views do the bay. FYI we had Coffee served at 7:00am as we are early risers... Does it get better than that! We will hopefully return next year

We stayed two summers in a row now at Harborlight.. Have relatives (large family group) who vacation Emerald Isle every summer and we spend a few days with them each summer. We like to be on our way for the day by 9:00 so would prefer to have breakfast over with by then. Otherwise, we love this B&B. Large rooms,... More

Harborlight Guest House, is PERFECT! A great get away for a couple. Very peaceful and beautiful. Bob and Debbie are wonderful innkeepers, staff is great as well. Our room was immaculate. Fishing off the dock in the evening was great, and kayaking on the sound is nice too. Very personable, will go back again:)

The Harborlight Guest House is a peaceful and relaxing retreat. Upon arrival we took a kayak ride, followed by rocking on the covered porch, watching the sunset. The Morehead suite is extremely comfortable, with a king size bed and a beautiful view. Breakfast was delicious and I wasn't hungry until dinner. Kathy was extremely welcoming and accommodating.

Some people have all the luck. I was at home, frustrated because I had waited until the last minute to make a reservation for fourth of July weekend. I found the Harborlight online when looking for places near Beaufort or Atlantic Beach. The place was called a "hidden gem". It was indeed. We stayed in the Carteret Suite. It had... More
