Cozy and quaint B&B with wonderful inn keepers Charlotte and Noah. It is very clean and well maintained. Excellent location on the main beach access road. The roomy second story balcony is ideal for lounging in the afternoon. It is a lovely walking beach with lots of surfers when the surf is up. The breakfast is outstanding. Warm scones and fresh fruit followed by a savory frittata. On the morning when we had early plans, Charlotte and Noah prepared us a travelling breakfast with a fresh pot of coffee waiting. And Charlotte's chocolate fudge cupcakes are to die for! We highly recommend Beacon House Inn B&B!

We last minute booked this B&B and are glad we did! At check in you are greeted with a warm welcome, a chocolate chip cookie, and a historical review of the house. What a great start! There are personal touches throughout the B&B to make it cozy and feel like home. Breakfast is out of this world and something you cannot get at a chain hotel! Rocking chairs on the front porch to relax in and a 1 minute walk to the beach front...this is a wonderful find! Clean, friendly service, and within walking & driving distance to local restaurants. Stay here...it's worth the price!!

Room Tip: Recommend staying upstairs as the walls are a little thin and you won't hear people tromping abo...

Wonderful B&B, the innkeepers Noah and Charlotte go out of their way to make the guests comfortable. The Inn was easy to find and and only a minute's walk to the ocean. Our room was cozy and comfortable, it was small but we didn't need much space since we spent most of our time outside :) It is the beach after all! The Inn used to be a boarding house and is full of history, it's also very welcoming when you walk in. Breakfast was amazing - two courses - eggs/bacon with fruit and the best french toast I've ever had! The front porch was great for listening to the ocean and catching the sea breeze.

And extra thanks to Noah for helping us fix a window problem in our room, it was after 11pm when the window malfunctioned (we tried to open it a little for the breeze and it fell all the way open and we couldn't get it closed back). He came down and was able to fix it so that we could still get a breeze and made it secure for the night. I don't think we would have gotten the same friendly and prompt service if we were in a chain hotel. Everything was wonderful!

Room Tip: You can hear the ocean from the front rooms and there is minimal traffic noise.

Because we had our three year old twins with us, we stayed in one of the cottages rather than the Inn. On arrival, before we could even get out of the car, we were met with a friendly greeting from Noah. The cottage was about what you'd expect from a small beach cottage, with two bedrooms, a cramped bathroom and a nice living room/kitchenette. We slept comfortably and, though we only used the fridge, it was nice to have the convenience of the kitchenette. It was interesting to read through past guest comments in the room log. Though breakfast isn't included in the cottages, Noah stopped by with some scones one morning which was a nice touch. They were very informed about the area and willing to converse and offer suggestions for restaurants and activities. Highly recommended! We hope to return without the kids at some point to try the B&B.

My husband and I had never stayed at a bed and breakfast so we decided to try it. We are so happy we did and we just LOVED the Beacon House Inn. Emmaculant, the inn keepers Noah and Charlotte were great Hosts and made us feel very welcomed. The bed was so COMFORTABLE!!! and the breakfast was scrumptious.
Walking distance to the ocean which is what we were looking for and also very close to good restaurants and live entertainment and dancing. I would highly recommend the Beacon House Inn to everyone I know. Thanks again Noah and Charlotte hope to be back in the near future and maybe next time we will stay in the cottage with our children.

This trip was a last minute decision to elope. My husband and I are very glad that we chose the Beacon House. Noah and Charlotte were awesome and very helpful in planning our wedding. The wedding was gorgeous and perfect for our family. Thanks again Noah and Charlotte, we will definitely be returning soon!!!

This was my first time going to a bed and breakfast, so I was really nervous and unsure of what to expect. Noah and Charlotte made the experience so amazing and fun! Charlotte's cooking was fantastic, and the two of them were outstanding hosts. :) The room itself was perfect and relaxing; just what I was looking for. I will definitely be going back next year.
