The sunrise and sunset views were absolutely gorgeous. We watched the dolphins from our deck. There are so many nice restaurants closeby and so many...

What a wonderful time my husband and I had on our two night stay. Lots of things to do in the area. Harborlight is a wonderful place to come back to after enjoying the day. Dana and Perry made us feel so welcome, and went beyond being wonderful hosts. Enjoyed some fishing on the dock and a glass of wine...

My husband and I stayed here over the Labor Day holiday, and to stay it was perfect doesn't even begin to cover it. The photos don't do it justice, as the location and views are so beautiful.

If you like to party, loud noise, crowds, turmoil, carousing, stress and the like, this is not the place to stay! But, if you want a peaceful, quiet, relaxing, to read and nod off, no traffic noise, meditate on God's Creation, birds, breezes, a lovely premise, very friendly, accommodating owners and staff, stay here!

I visit Harborlight every 8 weeks for business. So much better than a typical hotel. The widest view you'll ever experience-you can see the sun set and the sun rise. Love the new owners-very professional and also very down to earth. I hope to bring my husband down and stay. Love this place!
