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

An easy drive from Raleigh, Durham and Chapel Hill this is a waterfront oasis with gorgeous views and I keepers who serve up genuine southern hospitality. Sunset and Sunrise views from the Emerald Suite melt stress... Relax, rejuvenate and rekindle here!

We were just looking for a nice little getaway and found it! The views are great and rooms spacious and comfortable. The service is outstanding with breakfast served to your room, and absolutely delicious! We will be back!

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
