About Harper Peterson

We have been enjoying Bald Head Island since its inception and we have enjoyed watching it grow. Our family has grown up spending summers and holidays enjoying the majestic scenery and all the Bald Head has to offer. We chose to purchase and build in the Maritime Forrest for its privacy and calming affect. We've accumulated ideas and artifacts throughout our travels that have inspired our design for the home and we hope you will enjoy as much as we have.

Why Harper Peterson chose Coastal North Carolina

The Maritime Forrest is quietly nestled near the center of the island and offers beautiful privacy while being in close proximity to the beaches and all that Bald Head has to offer. This home and property certainly is a "must see"!

Unique Property with Wonderful Finishes

  • 5 of 5

We had two families (four adults/four children) vacation at this property over Easter weekend - and it was our first visit to Bald Head Island. The property is perfect for families vacationing together, as there are lots of separate spaces. The house is beautiful, very well done with lots of space for enjoying a book or a cup of tea. Our kids loved the patio with the ping pong table and sleeping in the "treehouse". Rides on the golf cart also were enjoyed by all. We highly recommend this property for anyone looking to vacation in Bald Head Island.

We have had numerous fantastic stays on Bald Head Island but this property tops the list. Usually the property is not as nice as the pictures make it look but in this case, the pictures did not do the property justice. It was a beautiful home that was extremely well maintained. We have always wanted to check out different parts of Bald Head but from now on will check the availability of this property first in the hopes that it is available! I cant say enough good things about the property and interactions with the owner.

Morning Light was an Oasis for my family!

  • 5 of 5

The pictures and videos of this beautiful property does not give justice to how unique and exquisite this house really is. The owner, Harper, greeted us at the house when we arrived from our shuttle and was very hospitable and gave us all the ins and outs of the house. My family enjoyed the house so much that I had to convince many of them to get outside and enjoy the rest of the island. The layout of the house provides various spaces for privacy yet is very open. I especially appreciated the artistic touches and various woods used throughout the house yet at the same time a very functional, down-to-earth feel and you feel as well a connection with nature. I have traveled around the world significantly but found this to be a perfect oasis for my family to have great time together and re-connect but still have that private space we all need as well.

A beautiful home that exceeds expectations

  • 5 of 5

This property was as lovely as the photos promised. It was exceptionally clean, well appointed and conveniently located. It easily accommodated 4 couples, all had private rooms and baths, and transportation (2 golf carts and three bikes) easily met all of our needs. The owner was extremely accommodating and supportive. I unhesitatingly recommend it to anyone who wants a luxurious "get away" in a lovely island setting.
