“A refreshing getaway with a touch of home!”
Reviewed 2 June 2011

I recently stayed at the Beacon House B&B for the first time with my boyfriend to celebrate my birthday. Tammy and David were wonderful hosts from the moment we arrived! They showed us around the house, which is a beautiful place and well-kept, and our room was fantastic. We stayed in the Whirlpool Suite and really enjoyed the long bath each night with a glass of wine! Having DirecTV in the room was nice, and it was difficult to get out of bed each morning because it was so comfortable! Tammy and David (plus their help!) made GREAT meals for us! My favorite dish was the Mexican-inspired quiche and the blueberry muffins. Beacon House B&B is conveniently located just across the street from the beach and you can easily get to it at any point in the day. We took walks there each evening and went back during the day to catch some sun. The inn is also only a few blocks away from the Boardwalk, which features our favorite donut place ever: Britt's Donuts.

I can honestly say that my partner and I have no complaints about our stay! We loved it and will be back, and hope that the new innkeepers will be just as wonderful as Tammy and David.

While the B&B might be another story, the cottage is a dump certainly not worth the money. It is "pet friendly" but certainly not people friendly. It is vey small, nasty carpet! No place to enjoy the beach atmosphere. Would never have stayed knowing what it is like. Not fit for my dog much less us.

Had a great time! There are not many choices when looking for a B&B on/near the beach. This is just across the street. Beach access is about that 100ft from the house. We stayed in the pineapple room. It was nice and we really enjoyed having 4 windows, even if you can not see the beach from the window or the deck directly outside.
The breakfasts were great as were the hosts!
The drawback is the layout of the house. While it is cool that it still has the look of the boarding house that it once was, if you are upstairs, you will hear any 'partyers' that are staying upstairs also when they come in. Also, if you have never been to Carolina Beach, it is very different from the other NC beaches I have been to. We wanted to go to an 'upscale' dinner, but could not find one without driving to Wilmington. Carolina Beach is very relaxed (to put it nicely). Kind of Myrtle Beachy, but that does not take away from the great B&B and beach across the street, just the lifestyle around the town.

We were looking for a bed and breakfast by the beach in the Wilmington, NC area when we found the Beacon Inn. Because it was still the off season, we were the only guests there the first night and loved the peace and quiet. We got the room with the whirlpool tub and used it both nights we were there and it was incredibly relaxing! The room was a good size and the bed was very comfortable. The innkeepers were super nice and pleasant and made excellent meals for breakfast! We truly enjoyed our stay here and look forward to coming back again.

Tammy and Davis are wonderful Inn keepers. Pet friendly and people friendly. Had a terrific stay. So nice we stayed an extra week. Clean spacious rooms. Easy walk to beach. We will stay again as well as my Children when they visit.
Reasonable prices. Everything you need is at the cottage. Has such a memorable time. Thank you Tammy and David, Utah and other doggie.

My husband and I stayed at Beacon House for a long weekend in late March and really enjoyed our stay. Tammy and David were lovely hosts, providing great advice on activities and places to eat. They were tuned in to all the little details like making sure there were wine bottle openers and wine glasses nearby so we didn't have to go looking for them. The breakfasts were wonderful and very filling - David did a great job each morning. The B&B was a very short walk (maybe 3 minutes) to the beach, and also within walking distance to the little boardwalk in Carolina Beach. We really enjoyed our stay!

I am a first year school teacher and my wife is a corrections officer. We decided on the spur of the moment that we needed a relaxing getaway and went to Carolina Beach. Our room at the Beacon House was exactly what we were looking for! It was quiet and comfortable. We had a two person jacuzzi tub in the room and enjoyed being able to walk on the beach in the morning before breakfast. Breakfast was excellent and the staff were very pleasant. The rooms were clean and we were very satisfied. If you are looking for a great romantic getaway then this is the place.
