Lois Jane's Riverview Inn
Ranked #3 of 9 Southport B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 26 June 2011

We spent 3 "laid back" days here in June. Best trip of recent times. Staff was helpful in every way. After a 6 hour drive we were greeted with a glass of wine and snacks along with a rocking chair. Breakfast was the best of any B&B that we have visited.
Looking forward to a return trip in the fall.

Room Tip: Check out Skip's suite (3 room,s plus bath)

Upon arrival we were never introduced to anyone that works there by name. No offer was made to help us with our luggage after check in. No one offered to tell us anything about the place like were to park your car, what time breakfast was, or even where the dining room was. Miss Mary's Room was clean but not worth the price. All of the drawers were filled with bathroom supplies which I had to move. No hairdryer in room and when I asked if they had one I could use it took them over 30 minutes to bring it up. The saving grace was the breakfast. It was served family style and was abundant and excellent tasting. But once again, no hot water if you were a tea drinker. I would not recommend or go back. The porch was dirty and in need of a paint job and some new furniture but the view over the tree was nice. That is if you didn't mind the noise from the kitchen of the restaurant across the street.

Room Tip: Pick somewhere else

My wife and I wanted to do something a little different this year for our anniversary so we looked online and found the Riverview Motel. We were just hoping for a relaxing weekend with some beautiful scenery. We found it at the Riverview Motel. The motel is older but they have refurbished the rooms well and it was clean. The staff was great and made our stay pleasant.

If your intent is to stay in a B&B, DO NOT select the "Waterfront" or "Streetside" rooms on their website's reservations page! Those rooms are actually in the Riverside Motel across the street. They charge B&B prices for these rooms but what you get is equivalent to a Super 8 or Motel 6. In other words, you end up paying about $100 or more for a $35 room. To add injury to insult, the establishment's dumpsters are kept next to the motel and trash pick up was at 7:00 am. No room in the motel is safe from the racket that results.

My husband and I spent three lovely nights at this gracious Charleston-style Inn--southern hospitality at its finest! Beautiful location, comfortable furnishings, and a lively young innkeeper whose breakfasts are to die for--as in fresh fruit, gorgeous french toast, rosemary potato pancakes, egg biscuits with spinach and hollandaise, bottomless coffee and other accompaniments too numerous to mention. Pleasant conversation with other guests went along with evening wine and cheese get togethers. Morning muffins with coffee were available early on the landing. Even in the middle of winter, it was comfortable enough to sit on the porch and look out at the river, stroll under the live oaks, and smell the salt air. A ferry ride to Bald Head Island completed the pleasure. Good restaurants within a short walk. Great place, highly recommend it!
