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

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
