The Lois Jane Bed & Breakfast is a relaxing get away. A home away from home. The friendly staff made our stay enjoyable. They served a hot breakfast each morning, that was very delicious. The views of the water from either the front porch or the variety of swings on the property were wonderful. It was really nice to meet...

Lois Jane's never disappoints us. We love it there. The Innkeeper, Carolyn, is the best, taking care of all your needs plus makes the best breakfast in town! We love the Miss Mary's room, enjoining the views from the balcony off the room. Coffee is available each morning to enjoy on the balcony while you watch the sun come up...

The best feature of the Riverview Inn was the location. What views! Sitting on the back porch swinging or walking along the waterfront was fantastic. It was our first visit and the room was very clean and the staff was very friendly. My rating is a "3" as the place definitely needs some updating. The water pressure wasn't great at...

This B&B was beautiful. The Inn Keeper was an outstanding hostess as she was very helpful and friendly. The rooms were really pretty and decorated to fit the era of time that the house was built. It was like stepping back in to the past as you sat on the big porch sipping on a glass of wine watching the...

We had a wonderful experience at this inviting Inn along the Cape Fear River. The amenities were fabulous and the morning breakfasts were absolutely fantastic thanks to Carolyn's secret ingredient for the grits!! Our room was lovely and everyone was so friendly. We will be going back to visit Carolyn and her family. - Laura and Gene

This is our second stay at Lois Jane's, good enough to come back! It is a a restored 1900's home furnished with period detail situated on the Cape Fear river with views of the passing ships from some of the rooms but best of all from the beautiful porches. You can sit and rock and watch the world go by!...
