Birthday weekend

4.6 on April 14, 2014

We stayed in the Emerald Suite to celebrate my birthday, and it was wonderful. We've already booked our return visit. The views are just beautiful from every direction. The bed is comfortable, the shower is awesome, and having breakfast delivered to the room is just divine. We're also 'foodies' and found wonderful dining spots in both Beaufort and Swansboro. We're eager to return.


Wonderful, relaxing stay

We recently had a wonderful long weekend at Harborlight. We stayed in the Beaufort suite, which has beautiful views and is very comfortably and thoughtfully laid out. Everyone there is friendly and helpful, and having the morning breakfast delivered to your room makes this place particularly special. The food was tasty and filling. I highly recommend Harborlight and hope we can visit again very soon.

Just a great weekend to get away. Good prices in the off season. Clean, very large room, and great breakfast.


Great weekend stay!

This was my first bed and breakfast experience and I'll have to say it will be hard to top it. The service was great, we never had to ask for anything. It is in a great location and has an amazing view of the bay. It's close to Swansborrow and a lot of really nice places to eat and drink. I enjoyed my stay and plan on going back very soon.
