“Wonderful Hospitality!!”
Reviewed 6 July 2013

My husband and I stayed at Beacon House for five nights just before the 4th of July...and we would have stayed longer had they not been booked. Immediately on the property, the welcoming personalities of owners Mike & Heather bubbled over the top just like we had been old friends for years. Mike graciously helped us unload the car even!! We stayed in one of the pet friendly cottages so we were able to bring our pooch and even he was treated like royalty. The cottage, although tiny (especially the bathroom), was exceptionally clean. We did have a problem with our door lock but Mike was right on top of it as soon as we talked to them about it. Unfortunately the food option isn't for guests of the cottages although I did get a couple samples and it was wonderful! I can only imagine how good it truly is. My only "disappointment" is that I couldn't actually see the water from our cottage but the positives of being there certainly outweighed the negatives. We had the linen package and found sheets, towels etc. were of good quality and not that stiff scratchy stuff found in hotels...and is definitely worth having. The kitchen was amply stocked for beach style cooking and a grill was available to us as well. We were within walking distance of the boardwalk, many restaurants, etc. and literally a two minute (or less) walk to the beach.

We did get to tour the main inn as well and it is quite cozy, very welcoming and extremely charming. We feel like we've definitely made some new friends in Mike and Heather and we look forward to going back soon!

We had a great time here, stayed for 4 days. Breakfast was wonderful, hosts were amazing, room was clean and the house is just beautiful. Very relaxing & laid back, beach right across the street and tons of places to eat out close by. We will definitely be back and would recommend it to all our friends!

My husband and I came here for our Babymoon at the end of June and we couldn't have had a better experience. The innkeepers are so nice and made us feel at home as soon as we got here. Everything was neat and clean and couldn't ask for better breakfasts. Mike is an amazing chef in the kitchen. They have the best coffee too! We will definitely be coming back for future visits :)

Why does one stay at a B&B? To avoid crowds, get to know small groups of people, and to enjoy quiet surroundings. These were just a few reasons my husband and I decided to stay at the Beacon House and all three were met with excellence and then some! The Beacon House has old fashioned charm, the food is wonderful, customer service was personable and the rooms are kept impeccably clean (thanks Jeanie). Beach access is across the street, the beach was quiet and walking to the pier was good exercise. Restaurant recommendations were wonderful as well. We will recommend Beacon House to all our friends and we will be back soon.

Room Tip: Whirlpool suite and spring room quite lovely

My friend and I wanted to go to the beach for a single night but were having a hard time finding a reasonably priced place that let you stay only one night until we came across the Beacon House. What a gem we found! The building is a 1940's boarding house turned B&B. It is not fancy, but cozy and felt like home. The bed was ridiculously comfy. Its a cute, unique place to stay, and the beach is just across the street. Do take note that since it is an old boarding house, to get to the upstairs rooms, the staircase is outside off of the porch. Not a problem for us because the weather was great.
The owners were extremely accommodating, very nice, and great cooks! The breakfast was an out of this world french toast with sauteed bananas and fresh blueberries with perfectly crispy sausage. And, of course, gourmet coffee is never a turn off.
I am very interested to stay in one of their cottages with the family very soon!

Room Tip: The Pineapple Room is on the second floor right by the front porch. Great for an afternoon reading...

My husband and I spent nearly a week at the Beacon House Inn, and we are hard pressed to stop gushing about the experience. The immaculately kept inn was absolutely charming, and the proprietors' commitment to customer service is second to none. If you are looking for a fantastic bed and breakfast experience, the Beacon House Inn is a must stay. Mike and Heather are warm, friendly, and the very best of hosts. The staff is incredibly welcoming and ready with quality dining and recreation recommendations, and the breakfasts are nothing short of fabulous. Offering guests an ideal experience is a rather tall order, and the Beacon House Inn delivers in every way. Whether it is your first time at a bed and breakfast or it is your favorite form of lodging, you will not be disappointed. To say we eagerly await our next stay is a massive understatement. Another way to experience Carolina Beach simply does not exist--well done!
