Harborlight review

5 on September 05, 2017

We have stayed at Harborlight guest house multiple times. We plan to continue to return several times per year. The view and the impeccable treatment that you receive from Dana, Perry and the entire staff is always amazing. Would recommend revisit to anyone looking for an incredible getaway.

Anniversary Getaway

4.6 on August 24, 2017

Harborlight Guest House is a gem on the intercoasral. Upon our arrival, we were warmly greeted by the manager Kathy. She made us feel at home instantly. The Shackleford room was even better than the pictures. We will be back for sure.


We had a great time!

Loved the location; especially, at sunset. Multiple course breakfast a real special treat. Had wonderful overnighter in July. Planning on 2 nights in September.


Best stay ever

5 on August 08, 2017

Absolutely one of the best getaways ever. So relaxing and so accommodating. The pictures do not do this place justice it is absolutely gorgeous


what a nice surprise!

4.6 on July 30, 2017

Did an overnighter in Swann Suite. Updated to quality beachy decor...didn't look like pics on web-site..we were delighted. Breakfast delivered to room at 9am...red raspberry pancakes were wonderful as well as other courses served. Room AC noise a bit much for us; but, then, we are used to total silence while sleeping. Sunset from room and landscaping around B&B outstanding. We will go back; but, this time, we will book a room w/covered balcony so that we can enjoy breakfast al fresco. Dana & Perry are hands on B&B hosts...couldn't ask for anything more.

Intercoastal Oasis

The owners are youthful and very capable. The property is beautiful and well maintained. Fantastic breakfast and centrally located for many Crystal Coast activities. We will be back, for sure.


Hidden gem

5 on June 21, 2017

What a beautiful location. The owners, Dana and Perry, and their staff made our stay so enjoyable. Breakfast each morning on the our deck overlooking the Bogue Sound was fabulous. We will return to this hidden gem on NC's crystal coast.
