Beacon House Inn Bed & Breakfast
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed July 30, 2012

We were leaving the island after a fruitless search for accommodations and stumbled across Beacon House Inn. They had one room left and it was truly the last one on the island! My last B&B experience left me leery of trying another one. I am glad we gave this place a chance. Noah greeted us and could not have been more engaging, without being nosy. Be honest with yourself about what defines a great B&B. Is it the view, conveniences, amenities or some other element? The most important to me is service and Noah and Charlotte rock. If you want a relaxed vacation with clean accommodations, great food and excellent hosts you wont find a better place. A great vacation isn't the smell of the soap, its the service and Beacon House is an Oasis.

Room Tip: Its a B&B not a hostile. Expect to hear the same noises as if you were home.

Spent a lovely anniversary weekend at the Beacon House Inn Bed and Breakfast. A gorgeous stretch of ocean at Carolina Beach, especially for catching the sunrise. Setting was quiet and innkeepers were helpful and friendly, even got hot from the oven cookies as an afternoon treat. Appreciated having access to our two-room suite without having to go through the whole house. Also nice to have a TV to catch the news each evening.Brochures and guidebooks in the common areas were very helpful in finding a service that delivered an umbrella and beach chairs to a spot just of the access steps near the B&B. Look forward to going back again!!

Room Tip: Romance suite is two rooms plus a pass-through bathroom.

We rented one of the cottages and have never found a place so comfortable for 4 adults (and our dog). Cottage was very clean, beds quite comfortable, decor was cozy and warm, loved porch seating, EVERYTHING!!! Plus, literally you are a one minute walk to the beach and maybe 10+ min walk to downtown shops and restaurants. The owners are very easy going and friendly. My only regret was we could not stay longer. Very relaxing!

My daughter and I stayed at the Beacon House. We chose the Beacon House because while not inexpensive it was more economical than neighboring beaches. We loved the location, steps away from the beach and a 15-minute walk to the boardwalk. No need to move your car once it is parked. My daughter and I often go to BNB's since we prefer the homey atmosphere to busy hotels. And the Beacon House met and exceeded our expectations. As the other reviews state, Charlotte and Noah (and now their little one) are fabulous hosts. Yummy breakfasts (too good!), very friendly, happy to provide recommendations to local attractions and just pleasant to be around. Their wait staff is also exceptional. We'd absolutely return!

Room Tip: We stayed on the first floor in the Spring Garden Room. The room was very cool, despite the oppress...

My husband and I spent our 10th anniversary here and it was perfect! The room was great and very clean! Breakfast was even better and the innkeepers were so welcoming! We really enjoyed our stay and hope to make it back soon!

My husband and I enjoyed a wonderful stay at Beacon House. The breakfasts were delicious and filling. The facilities could use a little updating, but they are true to the pictures. The mattresses slept very comfortable too.

We love the Beacon House!!! Not only is it right across the street from the beach, Noah and Charlotte are the best--just really friendly, interesting and warm people. The little details were so nice--mini fridges with wine glasses and corkscrew always nearby, tea tree and olive soap, everything you need for the beach, and bathrobes that were super comfy. We had planned to camp one night at Carolina Beach but it was so blazing hot that we headed straight back to the Beacon House for a third night and they set us right up. Noah walked us over to the beach and took our pictures with a handmade camera contraption that made the photos look retro and cool. All this plus a fantastic breakfast to start you day. Thank you Noah and Charlotte--we love you guys!!
