“Sister Weekend”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 April 2014

This was my third stay at Blue Heaven Bed and Breakfast. Each time has been a wonderful stay. The owner Jay, is a great host. House is very clean and the breakfast has always been very good. This past stay my sister and I were in the Newport room. (blue room) Feel right at home during each stay. I feel like I have an extended family at Blue Heaven. Very easy to walk to Front street. Will continue to stay during my stays in Wilmington :)

Room Tip: All rooms are wonderful!

I stayed 4 nights at the Blue Heaven in Mid-March. The Inn is very clean and welcoming. My room was so comfortable and cozy I didn't want to leave! I stayed in the Blue Room, a big room with large windows & comfortable bed.There was a private bathroom across the hall for my use only with bathrobes supplied & it was not a problem at all. Jay was super nice and very helpful with area information. He makes a terrific breakfast every morning too. You can walk to all the restaurants and shops in the historic district. So just park your car out front of the B & B and go! I would recommend the Blue Heaven to anyone wanting to stay in Wilmington.

My husband and I stayed here for our 6th wedding anniversary. The owner is friendly and knowledgeable about the local area. The location is perfect for walking around the historic downtown. The room was clean, and the breakfast was good. We were only able to stay for a night because our children are still quite young, but we would have loved to stay here longer.

We stayed here in October and it was just what we were looking for. Beautiful house, clean and bright room, very tasty home cooked breakfast and Jay was welcoming and helpful. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this B and B to anyone.

My husband and I stayed at Blue Heaven at the end of October and I have to say it was one of our most memorable trips to Wilmington. We were able to do everything that we wanted to do in town and it was all within walking distance. This was our first trip to a Bed and Breakfast and will not be our last after this visit. Jay was a great host and provided a clean, comfortable and inviting atmosphere. He also had a lot of great recommendations on things to do in town. We really had a great trip and hope to return soon! :)

September for a quick overnight was a great time of year to visit Wilmington. The B&B was very bright and clean, breakfast was scrumptious and Jay's hospitality fabulous. The Blue heaven is very convenient to the main waterfront area, a short walk to everything. We took the horse carriage ride around the historical district and it went right past our bed and breakfast! (we could have walked faster though!)

The rooms are large and had ample storage space, hair dryer in the bathroom ( my wife was happy), there was a spare room that was used as a guest 'hang out area' with fridge, wine and beer glasses, even some snacks! Jay stocked the fridge with beer and soda for us to use and was extremely accommodating even offering to put a bottle of wine in there for us.

All in all a very nice place to stay convenient and great value for money.

Room Tip: Call Jay directly, there is one room that does not have an ensuite bathroom and one room that has a...

Blue Heaven was our first B&B stay, and it was a wonderful experience! Jay was a very gracious host. The accommodations were very comfortable. The location of this B&B makes it easy to enjoy downtown Wilmington by walking and the beach with a short drive. We enjoyed wonderful breakfasts and great conversations. Jay gave us great suggestions about the area and better stories about its history. We stayed in Sanibel Central, which was beautiful. We will certainly return!
