Welcome to the Beacon House Inn Bed & Breakfast

Our six room Bed & Breakfast, mainly an adults vacation haven located across the street from the ocean, is the heart of our operation.  Our vintage beach dwelling, originally built in the 1940’s formerly as a boarding house, has rooms that were constructed with warm knotty pine walls that give the house its casual and homey charm.  Retaining that relaxed prime beach vibe of tasteful charm and character, our B&B has all the modern amenities and charisma that you would expect from any boutique hotel or small Inn.  Wake up to the aromas of a freshly prepared artisan breakfast or sip a special blend of our fabulous gourmet coffee while walking on the beach or sitting on the front porch.  Being able to tantalize the cravings of the most discerning tastes, your time here will leave you with pleasant memories.

The Beacon House also offers three cozy, family / dog friendly beach vacation cottages that sit behind our B&B.  Our petite cottages are about a 2-minute walk to the sand and have all of the amenities for a small family looking for a memorable beach vacation. Cottage rentals are self-catering with full kitchens and equipped for longer stays.

Want to experience City and Surf?  The Beacon House also offers a family / dog friendly “City Flat” located in the center of the historic district in downtown Wilmington.  A mere 20-25 minute drive from the beach, our City Flat allows you the opportunity to explore a city that drips with southern charm, has a plethora of craft beer and fine dining, and is home to an array of great art and theater.
