“Great B&B”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2013

First time my husband and I stayed in a B&B. We loved it! the house was beautiful and staff was just wonderful. Totally enjoyed the breakfast every morning at 8:30 a.m. Meeting all the other guest at the breakfast table was entertaining. It was a hot weekend but the A/C was working perfectly. Also enjoyed the cheese and wine with other snacks that were served @ 5:00 p.m. every night. The location is wonderful, walking distance to restaurants and downtown area.
Would strongly recommend this Inn.

Room Tip: we stayed in Davey's room. this is the smallest room but it has its own bathroom.

I've stayed at Lois Jane's numerous times, and would literally stay there forever if I could. It feels like home there, and the owners are so nice, you feel like you've known them forever after just meeting them once. Davey and his son, Bonner and family, are the nicest people you could ever hope to meet. The innkeeper, Erin, is the nicest girl ever. I told the owner, Davey, I want her job if she ever leaves because I love Lois Jane's so much. The breakfasts are always great. I don't even eat breakfast normally, but would never miss the experience there. The food and the guests are worth getting up early for. This inn should always be your #1 choice for staying in the most wonderful town on Earth, SOUTHPORT!

We were in town and didn't plan on staying. They happened to have a room in the main house and it was wonderful. We only stayed one night but wanted to stay more. The location was perfect, the rooms were clean and quiet, the mattress was very comfortable. The breakfast was fabulous - lots of great food. We were very happy!!!

We have stayed at Lois Jane's twice (once in the main house, Davey's Room, and once in the lower-level Captain's suite). Davey's room has a hunting theme and when we stayed there, we were the only people in the entire Inn! The suite in the adjacent building had a kitchen, a nice little living area, and a front patio with a water view! We liked both for different reasons. Breakfast has been delicious both times. The location is unparalleled, the Inn beautifully decorated, and the staff friendly and outgoing. We travel to Southport and Bald Head Island frequently, so we will be back!

Room Tip: If you want more space and are planning on staying more than a night or two, try either of the Capta...

We arrived on a sunny Friday afternoon just before the rest of our family. We rented two rooms in the main house and the second floor in the "carriage house". The grounds are full of flower gardens that have people constantly taking pictures. The main house is about 120 years old and is looks perfect condition. The furniture in the front room and "sitting room" is amazing. The beds were very comfortable and the A/C removed the humidity. The Southern comfort breakfast buffet each day prepared us well for our day. Southport is a nice location to relax and walk around in. There are many antique shops and seafood restaurants within walking distance and a ferry to take you to a few locations. $5 which took our van and 8 passengers north to Fort Fisher which is just south of Kure Beach and Wilmington. We'll definitely return. It was a nice place to relax. They have WiFi and cable TV.

If you are looking to de-stress and forget about the rest of the world, Southport is the location for you. Lois Jane's Riverside Inn and Riverside Motel are in the heart of this quaint town. If you aren't a vegetarian and don't mind the smell of bacon, stay at the B&B. If you do mind the smell of bacon throughout the house, stay at the motel. The motel offers a fantastic view of the Cape Fear River. Accommodations are clean and modest; the view is spectacular and the location could not be more perfect. It's a popular film location, so you never know which movie or miniseries will be filming while you are there. Erin, the innkeeper, is by far the most hospitable person we met while visiting. I would stay there again just so I could be in her company. She is what makes that house feel like a home.

Room Tip: If you stay at the B&B, ask for the private inn in the back OR for a room facing the Cape Fear R...

I was disappointed that we were put in the motel across the street and not the inn. It was adequate but not what we were expecting. Breakfast is at a communal table and they do not serve until 8:30 a.m. We are early risers and want coffee and breakfast so we can be on our way for the day. They also were not that friendly.
