An amazing place. This property is so unique and comfortable. The rooms are big, comfortable, and freshly updated. The owner Bob really makes you feel at home and his breakfast is superb. There is no way to say enough good about this place.

We loved our stay here and would return in a heartbeat. The owners and staff made us feel welcome and comfortable. The breakfasts were fabulous! The property is very quiet and beautiful. We enjoyed being away from the crowd yet within a 5 min drive to Emerald Isle beaches. It's a wonderful property to come back to at night and... More

My husband and I decided to stay in-state to celebrate our 1st anniversary, and we found Harborlight through a Google search. We read the tripadvisor reviews, which were great, and decided to call for a reservation. We were able to book the Emerald suite, aka the Honeymoon suite. When we arrived, Kathy showed us the grounds and the amenities we... More

It was a delight to spend our week at the Harborlight. The beautiful scenery, wonderful accommodations, delicious breakfasts and relaxing atmosphere made for a fantastic vacation at the Crystal Coast. The staff goes out of their way to make you feel welcome and to provide for your comfort. This is a great place to come to get away from the... More

My wife and I were celebrating our 18th anniversary, and we didn't have time to go far. We decided to head about 20 minutes down the road from our home to just get away. The Harborlight provided us with exactly what we needed. It was clean and comfortable, and the view from our room was fantastic! Bob and his staff... More

Our stay at the Harborlight Guest House was fantastic from check in to check out! The house has gorgeous rooms and common areas; the surrounding property is immaculately groomed (complete with hammock between palm trees!); advice on restaurants was dead on; the breakfasts were delicious; all staff were warm and friendly, as well as efficient. While sitting on our private... More

grandma and favorite aunt combined. We arrived at OBX at 3 AM only to find that the beach house where we were going to stay had a plumbing problem and we had to find a hotel in the middle of the night. Somehow we stumbled upon Harborlight Guest House online. With their May special, the Swann Suite ended up being... More

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.
