We were in Wilmington for just a short time for a wedding, and thoroughly enjoyed our first stay at a bed and breakfast. The location, charm, and price of Blue Heaven was just right, and the welcoming and engaging owners made our experience even more unique. Breakfast was delicious, the owners were very accommodating, and attention to small detail was... More

What a great place to stay! My cousin and I were doing a little trip down the coast of North Carolina and stayed over night in this bed and breakfast. Jay is a wonderful innkeeper! He enjoys the company of his guests and will sit and talk to you about anything and everything. He was very insightful, about the surrounding... More

Our stay here was beyond perfect. Jay spent time making sure we chose good restaurants from downtown and that we had a map in tow. He worked very hard making sure we were pleased with our stay, which we were! Neither my husband or I had ever stayed in a Bed and Breakfast and it blew us away how it... More

This review is very difficult to write but I feel it is only fair for fellow travelers. The inn keeper, Jay, is a wonderful well-intentioned man. He is very congenial and hospitable, providing a lot of added touches to make you feel at home - water, wine, beer, popcorn, chocolates, and pleasant conversation. So what was wrong with our stay?...

We enjoyed the spacious Sanibel suite for a weekend visit. The room was clean and lovely. The home was beautiful and quiet yet still walking distance from the river shopping district. Jay was very helpful and accommodating. We World certainly visit again!

We had the pleasure to stay at Blue Heaven B and B and enjoy Jay's hospitality. His wife left him solo for the weekend and he handled it with aplomb. We brought our dog, Roxie, with us and found Wilmington to be pleasantly dog friendly. There is a degree of serenity in the Wilmington area that is unfortunately becoming difficult... More

We visited Wilmington, NC. for two nights. We chose to stay at Blue Heaven in the very comfortable Santibel Central room. There are a lot of different areas of this beautifully restored house to enjoy. There was a formal sitting room downstairs with a less formal one just down the hall from us. I planned to enjoy it but we... More

My boyfriend and I stayed at Blue Heaven this March. The owners, Jay and Donna, were incredibly welcoming and friendly. We had complimentary wine in the evening with the owners and other guests, which was a really lovely treat! The room was huge and very comfortable. We will definitely be back to visit!

This was my first time in Wilmington and my stay at Blue Heaven was delightful. I took my parents to Wilmington for an overnight stay in late Dec 2014 and it was a great experience. Jay, the owner, was extremely helpful and accommodating. He gave us a nice walk through the whole bed and breakfast, pointing out historical facts about... More

as a B&B owner I enjoy getting a chance to stay at local B&Bs when I travel. This B&B has a room just like mine, for a great value where the bath is located just outside the bedroom. No problem. Breakfast was very impressive and Jay has a way of making you feel at home...
