When available, this is a very relaxing spot...takes you back a few years with charm and a down-home feel. Unbeatable views of Oak Island, Bald Head, and the Cape Fear River from the rocking chair front porch (literally...they provide you rocking chairs). Southport is a great town to walk/bike around, with quaint but insanely appetizing restaurants. If you're a beer... More

This was our very first B&B experience. This is a late post as we were actually here in October 2012. It was still a wonderful and unforgettable experience. Everything was within walking distance. My husband still remembers that they served wine, drinks, and cheese, and bless his heart every time we have stayed at a B&B since he asked if... More

Visited Southport, NC, for the first time this weekend and stayed at Lois Jane's, a charming B&B in a perfect location. Staff was wonderful, the inn was beautiful and our bed could not have been more comfortable. We stayed in Miss Mary's room and were thrilled with the entire experience. Highly recommend a visit to Southport and a stay at... More

We just spent a few days in Southport at Lois Jane's B&B. The breakfasts were great, and the staff we met, including Erin and Brenda, were friendly and helpful. We stayed in Miss Mary's room which had a private door to the upstairs balcony which was really nice. Everything was clean, and all our needs were met. The only problem... More

My wife and I have been here a couple times now and would NOT stay anyplace else in Southport, NC. It is such a quaint little town and the Lois Jane captures and embodies the charm perfectly. Amazing rooms with water views to watch sailboats and even cargo freighters roll out to see. Modern amenities with a classic feel. The... More

If you are looking for a "high rise luxury hotel" then this is not the place for you. If you are looking for a small town place that still uses real keys, this is the place! The room was small, but clean and you can even open the windows to get a cool breeze coming in. Once you step out... More

We enjoyed a very comfortable b&b stay in Miss Mary's Room. The experience was all that we had hoped for. The staff were helpful and friendly. The room was large, well appointed and the bed comfortable with some lovely soft bed linen. The adjacent balcony was delightful for sitting out and reading books The wine and cheese at 5 pm... More

My husband and I were very impressed with this B&B. It was more than we could have hoped for. Enjoyed a glass of wine on the outside veranda, freshly baked cookies in our room, bedroom/bathroom were well furnished--first time I slept til 8am in a very long time. Excellent breakfast fixed for us on our awakening. The home in all... More

We stayed two nights at this nice little B&B. It rained most of the time which allowed us to sleep in. Everything was clean and we'll kept. The staff was awesome and made us feel right at home. Walking distance to everything.
