Lodging in the Heart of Carolina Beach

The Beacon House Inn Bed & Breakfast is located just fifteen miles from Historic Downtown Wilmington, NC. Our island consists of Carolina Beach, Kure Beach and Fort Fisher, which together are better known as “Pleasure Island.”  The Cape Fear River runs through Wilmington ending just beyond Fort Fisher where it flows into the Atlantic Ocean. Described as one of North Carolina’s best beaches with vintage beach cottages, minimal crowds and a family friendly atmosphere, Pleasure Island is a favorite vacation spot throughout the year. The Beacon House Inn Bed & Breakfast is conveniently located across the street from the beach with public access approximately a minute walk from our front porch.  We are 7 blocks north from the town’s pavilion and seaside original boardwalk.  Southport and other small towns that make up The Brunswick Islands are just to the south, which can make a fantastic day trip.  Raleigh-Durham is a two-and-a-half-hour drive north, and Myrtle Beach is a mere hour-and-a-half drive to the south.
