My husband and I were looking for a place to stay and this lovely place popped up on our GPS. The owners were very nice to us and I feel like we didn't miss out on any experiences that the Inn had to offer. What I loved about the location of the Inn was that it was on a quiet street and that we could easily walk to the Cape Fear river walk, fabulous restaurants and stores along the river. I would listen to the recommendations of the innkeepers because they pointed my husband and I to the best restaurants in town and some of their favorite shops.. They also gave us lovely directions to the beach and we had no problem getting there. We enjoyed sitting on the front porch and sipping the most delicious ice tea. The rooms are spacious, clean and restful. Every morning we were greeted with coffee outside our door, and a delicious breakfast in the formal dining room. We loved the innkeepers attention to detail liked the fresh flowers in our room . It just made our stay seem special.
