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.

My parents and I recently stayed here for 2 nights for part of our family vacation. Blue Heaven, and it's owner Jay, exceeded our expectations! The house itself is a large old home built in the late 1800's in the historic district. It's VERY close to the riverwalk and the main street and is an easy 5-10 minute walk away.... More

The Blue Heaven Bed and Breakfast has become a home away from home for our family. During the New Year 2014 season, my family and I stayed here again for the fifth time! When staying at the Blue Heaven, we experience superb service each morning when the owner offers a great breakfast (built into the price). He is very hospitable... More

This B&B occupies an old two-storey home in the old town. It is beautifully kept, with only four rooms but two porches. Our room was large, light and airy. It had a good large bed and a nice bathroom. Jay, the owner, is a very helpful an knowledgeble guy.
