Beacon House Inn
A comfy, no-frills B&B on the beach.
This comfortable bed and breakfast sits along five miles of pristine North Carolina beach. It is also convenient for touring historic Wilmington. It's a nice spot for a weekend getaway, and unlike many B&Bs, it has cottages which are good for families. You can rent a single room or the entire inn with cottages, making it ideal for large groups or reunions. Private catering is also available. The nine guestrooms are decorated in a variety of motifs. All are air-conditioned and have ceiling fans and queen beds; some also feature DirecTV, and one has a two-person whirlpool bath. Multiple room suites with private or semi-private baths are available. The cottages have full kitchens and are furnished with DirecTV, phones and linens. The two-bedroom cottage accommodates a maximum of four people, while the three-bedroom can take up to six. A full country breakfast is served at 9 a.m. daily for guests staying in the rooms; cottage visitors must fend for themselves. A two-night minimum stay is required in cottages, and pets are allowed but there is a cleaning fee.
