It felt like we were visiting old friends. Heather and Michael were super accommodating and friendly. The inn was immaculate and furnished nicely. We really loved the laid back atmosphere and spent time with the other guests enjoying the porches. Michael made us some amazing breakfasts. Quite the gem in Carolina Beach. We will definitely go back.

Great get-away. This B&B is everything we were looking for to get a few days away from the grind. The rooms are nothing spectacular but the breakfasts are excellent and follow their philosophy of "nothing from a box". The location is great for a quiet day at the beach that's close enough to all the amenities of a beach town... More

Spent two nights in the whirlpool room and really had a wonderful time. The whirlpool easily fit two people and the rest of the room was comfortable and clean. Breakfasts were absolutely delicious and were not just typical fare. Definitely worth the stay. Every evening there was some type of baked goods to snack on :). The location was wonderful... More

I surprised my wife with a getaway to the beach, and the Beacon House was a perfect destination for the weekend. Mike & Heather are absolutely wonderful owners and were able to accommodate our dietary restrictions. It is obvious they take great pleasure in serving only the freshest local ingredients and the made-from-scratch breakfast is not to be overlooked. On... More

Absolutely great trip and great Cottage! I slept like the dead every night. I loved the fact that we had central heating and air that actually worked! I'm used to a moldy smell when staying near the beach because of poor house keeping but cottage one smelled great! I could hook on to my own Netflix account and watch my... More

Anniversary beach trip. We had a fantastic time! Beach just across the street with easy access. It is an old boarding house so rooms are on the small side but very nicely appointed. Mike and Heather are great hosts. Mike made the most fantastic breakfasts (German pancakes, fruit, fritatas excellently seasoned, etc.). I felt like I was getting to taste... More
