“Charming B&B”
Reviewed June 3, 2013

I can only say this was such a great place to stay on our trip to Wilmington NC. Our host Jay could not have been any nicer and so laid back and interesting, after meeting Jay we had the pleasure of meeting Donna and felt like I knew them both forever. Had two great breakfast's and we left early the 3rd morning and he had coffee for us to go.
We would recommend this B&B to anyone, love Wilmington NC and hopefully we will make another trip back to Blue Heaven.
Thanks Jay and Donna for everything.

Blue Heaven is the best! The host, Jay, was a joy to be around. The room we were in, the Key West, was perfect. Breakfast was plentiful. Short 10 minute stroll to downtown Wilmington. Beautiful porches to relax on. Very quiet neighborbood. This place can't be beat!

If you are someone who is reading reviews for the Blue Heaven Bed and Breakfast, you may have already seen my previous entries for this B&B. Not only have I enjoyed my stay at the Blue Heaven, but this was my fourth time visiting this B&B! When my wife and I decided to visit North Carolina again, there was no question about where to stay, because we knew the quality of service at the Blue Heaven would be the same high-quality service we have come to enjoy. Our room was prepared well--with a king size bed, a fireplace for ambiance, a private bathroom with cast iron tub, Wi-Fi, and LCD television. Rooms at the Blue Heaven are located upstairs in this historic home in downtown Wilmington. Also, two parlors--located upstairs and downstairs--are available for any guests who wish to simply relax in the B&B. Breakfast is provided promptly at 9:00 AM everyday for all guests of Blue Heaven. Breakfast consists of a sampling of local fruits, a main course, and a small dessert. The inn keeper, Jay, is very accomodating to guests with dietary needs. There is no shortage of coffee for those who are coffee drinkers; additionally, tea, orange juice, and water are also provided. If you are new to the area, then feel free to pick Jay's brain on where to go and what to do in Wilmington. We have accepted his recommendatations on more than one occasion, and have not been steered wrong. His knowledge of activities and restaurants in the area will enhance your experience in Wilmington. I would definitely recommend Blue Heaven to anyone traveling through Wilmington, NC!

We just returned today from a wonderful weekend at Blue Heaven. It was our first time to this B&B and we definitely will be back on our next trip to Wilmington. It was such a beautiful house in a great location. The innkeeper and his wife were absolutely delightful. We enjoyed sitting and chatting with them and other guests. We liked how many common areas were available to relax and spend time with Jay and the guests. We stayed in the Newport room which had a private bath in the hall. We did not find any issue with this. The home is very clean and comfortable. If you are looking for great accommodations, Blue Heaven is a great choice.

My boyfriend at the time (now fiance) and I went there for my birthday a few years ago and ever since have been looking for an excuse to get away and go back! The rooms were incredible! They were clean, quiet and well decorated! There was a room down the hall to watch movies and hang out. Jay was a wonderful host and runs this B&B so well! Breakfast was amazing and the location is great! It was a perfect birthday!

We arrived in Wilmington kinda late in the day and lucky for us we called the Blue Heaven BB. We called and Jay said he had a room. Upon arrival it was easy to find and also a very short walk to Front street on the river. Room was very clean and comfortable. Jay was an excellent host and made our stay very enjoyable. We can't wait to stay again.

Our weekend in Wilmington was absolutely wonderful, made even more so by staying at Blue Heaven. Wonderful breakfasts, convenient location, charming decor, and excellent conversations around the breakfast table all came together to make a great experience. Jay is a delightful host who shows careful attention to the smallest need. Delightful time.
