In addition to the charming location and beautiful rooms, the owner is lovely. A warm and relaxing atmosphere where unwinding was easy. Breakfast was amazing and absolutely chef quality. Wish I could have stayed longer in such a beautiful spot. We will be back!

We stayed in the Skip's Upper Suite, which has a living room and kitchen in addition to the bedroom and bathroom, and a lot of privacy! We have stayed here before and it's wonderful every time. The innkeepers are warm and welcoming, and they went out of their way to make gluten-free breakfast options for my husband. Breakfast included more...

Lois Jane's Riverview Motel is a quaint, old school motel right on the mouth of the cape fear river. The rooms have a back porch complete with a wooden swing and an unbelievable view. The motel is within walking distance of all Southport NC has to offer but I could have spent all of my time on that swing watching...

The Lois Jane Bed & Breakfast is a relaxing get away. A home away from home. The friendly staff made our stay enjoyable. They served a hot breakfast each morning, that was very delicious. The views of the water from either the front porch or the variety of swings on the property were wonderful. It was really nice to meet...

Lois Jane's never disappoints us. We love it there. The Innkeeper, Carolyn, is the best, taking care of all your needs plus makes the best breakfast in town! We love the Miss Mary's room, enjoining the views from the balcony off the room. Coffee is available each morning to enjoy on the balcony while you watch the sun come up...

The best feature of the Riverview Inn was the location. What views! Sitting on the back porch swinging or walking along the waterfront was fantastic. It was our first visit and the room was very clean and the staff was very friendly. My rating is a "3" as the place definitely needs some updating. The water pressure wasn't great at...

Lois Jane's Riverview Inn is truly a wonderful weekend get a way. We stayed in Miss Mary's room which has access to the upper veranda from your room. The rooms are wonderful, well decorated, clean, comfortable. The breakfast superb. The location was perfect. Can't wait to go back!

This B&B was beautiful. The Inn Keeper was an outstanding hostess as she was very helpful and friendly. The rooms were really pretty and decorated to fit the era of time that the house was built. It was like stepping back in to the past as you sat on the big porch sipping on a glass of wine watching the...
