My wife and I found out about this B&B while surfing the 'net for a place to stay over Veterans Day weekend. I'm glad we chose to stay at AnchorLight because it was a once in a lifetime experience. This couple has built their lifelong dream and now shares it with others.
We enjoyed spending the evening in the top of the lighthouse watching the sunset while eating snacks and drinking sodas provided for us. Finally we went down to our room where we had a good nights rest. While there are TV's there if you want to watch, we chose just to take it all in with that being a distraction.
The following morning we woke up to a great breakfast provided for us in the lamp room at the top of the lighthouse. It was pouring down rain (which just added to the experience) and our hosts brought our breakfast up to us even in this inclement weather.
The weather was not the best but we had a great time anyway. We will go back and take a ride around Smith Lake in the Captain's tugboat, Maggie. Maggie is also the Captain's wife's name. They were great hosts and you will not be disappointed!
