Outstanding little B&B. We stayed in the hot tub room, which was charming. The bed was comfy. The hot tub was clean and pleasant, and not too noisy. The bathroom was tiny, but we don't take up much space.
Jacki and Dan made a wonderful breakfast, catered to our every whim. The other guests were friendly. We shared restaurant notes, and the hotel had a good guide to the restaurants on the beach (for non breakfast meals).
The home itself felt very "beachy", like we had been invited to stay with a relative that lives at the beach (having lived on Carolina Beach, I know what I'm talking about here *grin*).
It's right across the road from the beach (beach access is 1 house down), and within easy walking distance of a little beach store with basic food & dessert & beach needs, and slightly longer walking distance to the Carolina Beach pier and boardwalk.
Can't recommend it highly enough, and we will be returning!

We stayed in one of the cottages and it was perfect! We have two small children and our Au Pair came with us so we needed two rooms and it worked out great! It was newly remodeled and extremely clean!

We would definately stay there again!

This was our first experience in a bed and breakfast. It was great. The accommodations were comfy and cozy. The innkeeper was very friendly and helpful to us. Easy access to the beach. We would definitely stay here again.

My husband and I needed a little 3 day weekend getaway and chose to stay at the Beacon House Inn B&B. We could not have been any happier with our stay. The staff was wonderful and willing to help you with anything that you needed. Every morning there would be fresh fruit waiting on us and our breakfast made as we came in. We didn't have to eat something that had already been made and had sat for a while. The Inn was only a 2 minute walk from the beach and was close to the restaraunts in the Carolina and Kure Beach area. This was my first stay at a bed and breakfast and I could not have felt more relaxed. They made me feel at home and comfortable for the duration of our stay. If you want a place to stay in Carolina Beach, the Beacon House is the place to go!

We stayed in a cottage at the Beacon House Inn and with two couples it was unbearably tight. Somehow they say on their website that the cottage can sleep 6 but they don't mention how low the ceilings are, how small the two bedrooms are, or that the single bathroom has only a shower stall so you can't give kids a bath after going to the beach. The inn keeper was kind and helpful but I would never recommend staying here unless you were a couple who wanted to have a kitchen. No more than three people (including kids) can fit in the tiny, "cozy" space.

While we can respect the opinions of this guest, I feel that in all fairness several things need to be mentioned. One, we have photos of the cottage posted on our website which give you a pretty good indication of the size of the rooms. Two, any party travelling with four adults, two small children needing two extra cribs/packandplays, and two large dogs should not try to stay in a 2BR cottage on our property. I suggest inquiring about 2 of our 2 BR's or the 3BR so that children may have their necessary space, especially when napping. In hindsight, we should have brought it to the guest's attention that this number of people and animals would be a tight fit and for that I do apologize.
However, the cottage does sleep 6 with two queen beds and a futon couch, all pictured on our website. The guest also never inquired as to whether or not there was a bathtub available. We made every conceivable effort to acommodate their many needs; We also adjusted their rate and we
didn't charge them for the toilet lid that they broke. There's nothing misleading on our website we try very hard to portray accurate descriptions and photos. I think this was just a case of miscommunication of guest needs and perhaps, not enough questions were asked when the cottage was reserved to ensure that we could acommodate all of the things that they felt necessary to enjoy their stay.
