This is the second time that I have stayed at the Harborlight. I have stayed in two different rooms and both were gorgeous and both had wonderful views. Perry & Dana are extremely nice and make you feel right at home and the breakfast is to die for! I highly recommend the Harborlight and look forward to going back next year!

We have nothing but positives to say about our stay at the Harborlight Guest House. The property is beautiful, our room fantastic and immaculate with plenty of room, and the food outstanding. Dana went out of her way to make us feel welcome and to be sure all of our needs were met. We enjoyed it so much that we stayed an extra night! It is close to the beach and nearby restaurants. Also, they had beach chairs, towels, kayaks, fishing poles, and just about anything you could need at your disposal. We are teachers and were on our Spring Break. Staying at the Harborlight gave us what we needed to recharge. We will definitely be staying there again.

Our son and his family gave us a gift certificate to Harborlight Guest House for Christmas. We decided to use over Friday and Saturday March 31 and April 1. Arrived at Harborlight around 4pm on Friday and were blown away by the room (Beaufort Suite) we had a beautiful living room with a couch viewing the water, wet bar and hot tub. Went to Emerald Isle for dinner at Kathryn's Bistro it was excellent. On Saturday we explored Emerald Isle during the day then went to Saltwater Grill in Swansboro for early dinner also excellent. went back to Harborlight to watch the UNC basketball game in the big family and made nachos. All in all it was a wonderful weekend highlighted by the amazing breakfasts the girls prepare and delivery to your room. We will definitely be back. George and Cindy Bond Wilmington, NC

We had an amazing time here! The owners were sweet and helpful, the rooms were gorgeous, the view was spectacular, and the breakfasts were delicious! This place is a little slice of heaven. It's our 4th time here and it always feels like we're coming to our second home. The new owners have made some fabulous updates to the place and I know they have more planned. However, they've still kept the same spirit of the place and the delicious food! I can't wait to go back again!

I got married at Harborlight 10/01/16. Harborlight was our first getaway weekend when we started dating and couldn't think of a better place to get married. The ceremony and reception were on the grounds. The owners Dana and Perry were fantastic. They thought of EVERYTHING! They were so welcoming and very accommodating. The entire weekend far surpassed my hopes and dreams for the wedding!!!!

My wife and I stayed here on our wedding night. It was beautiful and quite a romantic getaway. I can't rave about this place enough, the food was wonderful and service was superb. We visited again on our 2 year anniversary. It was just as we remembered and we even found our names in the book that we signed and reviewed 2 years prior.

This was just what we needed--a quiet and relaxing getaway. We stayed in the Moorehead Suite and loved every bit of it. The view from the deck is lovely. All of the staff are super friendly and helpful. We're already discussing our next trip back to the Harborlight guest house!
