What a great anniversary weekend. The Bell-Clemmons home was opened up to us as almost "our house" with gourmet chefs included. Rick and Cathi prepared the most wonderful breakfast each morning. The breakfast included a full course along with a desert dish and a fruit cup. We did not leave hungry. Not only was there breakfast - there was a... More

What a wonderful 4 nights stay we had at the Bell-Clemmons House! Beautifully restored (historic but modern), we were greeted in the cheery foyer by Molly, B & B manager, who proceeded to give us a house tour and welcomed us to the quaint town of Southport.

Fantastic location, rooms, food and innkeepers. We have stayed at many B&Bs over the years and Bell-Clemmons was by far the best. The inn itself was built in the late 1800s and completely renovated about 10 years ago. Rooms are very comfortable and nicely decorated. Several porches to hang out on and enjoy a glass of wine. The kitchen, living... More
