“A wonderful anniversary getaway”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2012

This is a wonderful little property right across the street from a public entrance to the beach. The breakfasts are fantastic and Noah and Charlotte are really nice. The place was packed since it's high season, but our room was great. We stayed in the whirlpool suite. Fancy pants whirlpool tub, nice shower, a bed so comfortable we took a four hour nap on Saturday without even trying. We were just going to lay down for a few minutes. They keep the temperature really cool which is so nice at night and after coming in from the beachfront. We'd definitely come back if we could afford more than a weekend here.

Pros: great location, fabulous innkeepers, homemade breakfast, comfortable beds
Cons: it's a house and our room was right between the kitchen and the common area. Not so private, though I think other rooms are better. No oceanview, but they don't advertise it as such.

We were going to visit my Sister in North Carolina and decided to visit Carolina Beach on the way. So we started looking for a B&B our favorite way spend time on a vacation or just for a night when on the road. The 'Beacon House' was our choice, and were we glad. Convenient, clean, 'Fort Fisher just 5 miles away, the beach just across the road & the food, well; the absolute BEST breakfast in the world. Charlotte has to be a 'master chief', it was the greatest food and well presented. And Noah, thanks for all of the coffee!

If we are ever in the area again we will visit Charlotte & Noah at the 'Beacon House'

Room Tip: All of the rooms looked fine, we saw them all because when we arrived, we were the only couple there...

I had never been to Carolina Beach/ my husband was there with family as a boy and remembered having to leave because of the 1954 hurricane and came back again in a few years and the house had been washed away/ Loved the Inn and the charm of the past/ so easy to get to the beach / breakfast was plenty got us through till dinner/ except for having a boardwalk donut / will certainly return , East Tn has been missing out / easy trip over the mountain /
Will tell all my friends about this find !!! Thanks Noah and Charlotte

We stayed at the Beacon House for 4 nights and 5 days -- and we enjoyed every single minute of it. It was the first time my husband and I tried a Bed & Breakfast and we didn't hesitated to book our stay when we read reviews from other guests. Now we can officially say that Noah & Charlotte were wonderful hosts andthey made us feel welcome from day one. Noah asked us if there was anything that we didnt like for breakfast or were allergic to. They were also super flexible when we asked them if we could have a late breakfast in our last day :-) During our stay, Noah & Charlotte always gave us suggestions on fun things to do in NC and made referrals to some wonderful restaurants. The home was always clean and organized. We stayed in the Jacuzzi room, which was comfortable and nice. My husband and I both loved it. In our last day, Noah offered us to take pictures of us by the beach and later emailed to us.

We would definitely return for another vacation at the Beacon House with Noah & Charlotte. They are wonderful and great innkeepers :-)

Room Tip: Jacuzzi room!

We had such a wonderful experience at our weekend stay. Charlette and Noah are wonderful host and can cook an outstanding breakfast. We are hoping to come back in October for another wonderful weekend. This is the best B & B I have ever stayed at. Thanks Noah and Charlotte. Best of the with your new little one. Heather and Jimmie

My boyfriend and I decided to go on a quick weekend getaway to the beach.. We made the mistake of trying to book a hotel room at the last minute and found out rather quickly that everything was already booked solid.. I came across the BEacon inn and I'm so glad that I did! This place is amazing! The inn keepers, Noah and Charlotte are very nice and will take the time to get to know you and are more than happy to talk to you which you really do not find that in a hotel.. The room that we stayed in was clean, kind of small but we only stayed in there too sleep anyways. Bed was also comftable.. But I got to say though the best thing about this inn was the breakfast!! I was more than happy to wake up early to taste the deliciousness that Charlotte made each morning..way better than any free.breakfast you get at a hotel.. It is well worth the price.. And it also helps that it's maybe a minute walk to the water and that Noah and CHarlotte is very knowledgable about the area and will tell you where to go if asked! Must try!!

My boyfriend and I decided to make a spontaneous trip to what we thought was going to be Wilmington but we found ourselves here and we are so pleased that we did. The innkeepers are friendly and wonderful. We will definitely be going back and the breakfast absolutely amazing!
