Jay was wonderful during our stay. This was the first time we had stayed at a B&B. He is very knowledgeable about the area and made wonderful suggestions of things to do. We were never bored. The house is beautiful and our room was too. Jay also made the most tasteful breakfasts each morning. He visits the market often and... More

My husband and I stayed one night at the Blue Heaven Bed and Breakfast on August 2, 2014. I always check TripAdvisor before I actually book accommodations because I have found them to be extremely helpful, and for the most part, accurate. This B&B has had excellent reviews because it deserves them. Try to read as many as you can... More

We had not visited Wilmington in many years. The riverfront has a newish boardwalk that is good for a stroll and is in within walking distance of this B&B. However, we were disappointed that that Front Street has so many junkie establishments interspersed with some nice establishments. The Blue Heaven B&B, though, is in a nice residential neighborhood. The owner,... More

My boyfriend and I stayed in the Blue Heaven B&B for one night and loved our stay. The B&B is in the heart of the historic district and a short 10 minute walk to the riverfront. Parking is plenty in front of the B&B. We stayed in the Key West room which had great decoration and a very comfortable bed.... More

This was my first stay at a B&B and I will say that I was a bit intimidated by the idea. However, it proved to be a very pleasant experience. Jay was an excellent host, informed us about the area and was attentive while providing privacy. The location is great, a short walk to the river and lots of restaurants... More

We made a quick one night trip to Wilmington, NC and stayed at Blue Heaven. It was a great get away! Jay, the innkeeper, was a gracious host and a great chef. He provided great local information for shopping, dining and desert. We will return for another visit!

Absolutely perfect. Everybody else has said it. Best location, extremely knowledgeable and friendly host, great atmosphere, VERY comfy beds, wonderful breakfasts. You can walk to any nearby attraction or restaurant within 10 minutes. The outside sitting areas are like little bits of heaven... so quiet and comfortable, with great views.
