“Awesome Breakfast”
Reviewed 30 December 2013

We only stayed one night but found the Beacon House to be a very pleasant place to stay. The hosts were friendly and it felt like we were staying at a friends house. Comfortable clean rooms and close proximity to the beach. Our favorite thing was the delicious breakfast! Definitely recommend this B&B!

Room Tip: FYI, no fitness center (I accidentally selected it and can't get it to remove my rating).

My husband and I stayed at Beacon House this past weekend and we absolutely loved it!! Cozy, warm, beautiful and incredibly clean. The hosts Heather, Mike and Jeanie were warm, welcoming and very informative. Mike's breakfast was amazing!!! He was very kind to accommodate our dietary needs with fantastic gourmet breakfasts. Heather's coffee and tea were delicious and Jeanie was very sweet and helpful. We loved our experience at the Beacon House and highly recommend it! We plan to go often and tell our friends about it!!!

So, Susan and I just started seeing each other and she wanted to get out of town for an over night. She lives in Durham, I live in Wilmington…Wanted it special because of the 25 years we haven't spent time together. Beach, theatre, great food, all part of the plan, but we needed a place to stay to make it REALLY special. I knew nothing about Beacon House, but thought I'd give it a chance…It was PERFECT! All the regulars are true, the room is clean, the breakfast was fantastic, the location is wonderful, but the biggest selling point is the owners. Heather and Mike make you feel like friends from the old neighborhood who they haven't seen in a while and they want to catch up…They are the perfect hosts. I know there are a lot of places at the beach, but Susan and I have found our place. Thank you, Heather and Mike. A wonderful gem down at Carolina Beach…Can't wait to get back, maybe New Year's Eve???!!!

Room Tip: They don't have a swimming pool, nor a fitness center…They have an Ocean to swim in and a beach...

Thank you so much J.R. It was great meeting you and Susan and very glad you enjoyed your stay. Hopefully we will see you around Wilmington; perhaps at the theater. Come by for a visit anytime. We'd love to see you for New Years. Should be a blast!

We love the cottage cause we can buy a few groceries and make lunch and breakfast, the weather was wonderful for walking on the beach. We are older folk and just enjoy doing our own thing and the cottages give us that experience. The view out the bedroom and kitchen windows is very peaceful and there were flowers still blooming. Very friendly and competent staff , will continue to pick this B and B for our beach vacations. They shared some of their excellent coffee with us.

Room Tip: We have stayed in the inn and loved the whirlpool Suite

The weather wasn't what we hoped for on our trip but this B&B was worth the ride. Very nice innkeepers, very comfortable bed! Great coffee was available as soon as I left my room and breakfast was shortly after. Another comment mentioned there is no view of the ocean however on the second floor balcony there are two rocking chairs placed strategically so you CAN see the ocean. Technically speaking.

We enjoy B&Bs and were delighted to find this gem right across the street from beach access. Heather was very friendly and accommodating, and Mike's cooking was wonderful! They also have some fun, interesting life stories to share. Breakfast (complete with gourmet coffee options) was served in a sunny room with individual tables, allowing for socialization with a little privacy. The big front porch was perfect for reading and relaxing after a day in the sun. Our room (Spring Garden) was a little small, but nicely decorated and comfortable. The common area offered TV and a little more room to spread out.

We went back again just for 1 night this weekend and stayed in the Travelers Room. Had a great time, had drinks on the front porch with the others guests and the owners, everyone was so nice and welcoming! The owners Mike & Heather are great & so much fun! We will definitely be back as soon as we can!
