Rick and Linda made us feel welcome and at home. They went out of their way to show us around Southport. Rick shuttled us to and from the ferry to Bald Head Island in his fun golf cart. The accommodations were very nice with a lot of nice touches such as wine, water and candy. Breakfasts were excellent!!! It was very hot outside and the Inn was cool and comfortable. They provided bicycles to ride around town free of charge which is a very nice touch. They recommended places to eat and things to do around town. We would definitely recommend this beautiful place and will be going back again.
