Our first visit to Harborlight. Met new owners and what a delight they are. Their focus on making each stay comfortable, enjoyable, and memorable goes beyond words capacity to acknowledge. Come here to "RELAX" or enjoy the surrounding area. Very close to Emerald Isle beaches (the Inn will give you some beach chairs and umbrella), near the historic town of... More

My girlfriend and I just finished our vacation at Harborlight Guest House and it was truly amazing. The quaint, peaceful atmosphere was super relaxing and we definitely felt at home during our stay. The views over the Sound were breathtaking from the Morehead Suite. The property has new owners but never fear because the House is in good hands with... More

Our room, the Morehead Suite, was lovely and incredibly large, but the bonus was the covered balcony overlooking the sound. Perry and Dana, the energetic new owners, served a delicious breakfast on the deck. We had to tear ourselves away each day! We hope to return soon!

Young new owners are wonderful! The property has amazing views, lawn, and landscaping and I'm sure Dana will be hosting wedding events in the very near future! They did an amazing job caring for us and giving us advice on where to go and how to get there. Their staff was super-helpful and courteous - and even brought breakfast to... More

We had a great stay in the Carteret Room at Harborlight. It was our second time there (with fifteen years between our visits) and the experience was exactly as we remembered--secluded setting, wonderful breakfasts, and warm hospitality from the new hosts, Dana and Perry. We especially like the Carteret Room because it has a private patio with a swing and... More

New Owners are Awesome young and fun professionals! Enjoy a wonderful 2-course breakfast overlooking the most beautiful lush green and flowering landscape with a view to the bridge to Emerald Isle. If we are ever in the area again we will stay there again. Our room was huge with a large spa tub and separate bathroom. Views from every direction... More

My husband and I stayed at many B&B's before. This place was beautiful. All the beautiful flowers and water views are so pretty. We took our daughter and son-in-law to the Harborlight. This was their first time staying at a B&B. Dana and Perry made sure we had everything we needed. They only have been running the place for 2... More

We spent two nights in the Swann Room, perfect for a couple with water views out of every window, including the huge window in the bathroom. We were kayaking, and Perry let us keep our kayaks in the garage, so it was just a short carry to the launch area to get into the water. Perfect for kayaking and a... More
