    My wife and I had the most wonderful stay here. We were truly impressed and even amazed by the genuine kindness and hospitality provided by Rick and Cathi. Additionally, we were pleasantly surprised by the complimentary fridge of refreshing drinks, the amazing and plentiful homemade appetizers and breakfast, and beautiful, well-kept home. Even the bikes were a big hit in enjoying Southport. Not sure I could have envisioned a nicer setting, finer host and hostess, or more generous hospitality!

  • Gerald & Alinda

    Thank you so much for such a wonderful stay. You made our 18th anniversary complete. The food was amazing. Your home was so beautiful and inviting. We have found another home away from home.

  • Guest

    Thank you for an amazing first B&B experience! We cannot say enough good things about how welcoming and comfortable you made us feel. The food was as delicious as it was beautiful, and the house and rooms were so clean! We don't want to leave! Thank you for making our much needed getaway AMAZING! Brent and Naomi Charleston, SC

  • Kristi & Todd

    When I first arrived, I was a little apprehensive, simply due to my experiences with other B&Bs before, but from the moment we opened the door, it was so warm and inviting. We were met by Cathi, one of the owners, and she made us feel so welcome and at ease. From the wonderful snacks, good wine, and great conversation, we felt like we had found a second home immediately. The breakfasts were absolutely wonderful. After hearing the story of how Cathi and Rick met at a B&B, we know how much their hearts are in to making their B&B a place people want to return to year after year. We are in a new relationship and have made wonderful memories here. We plan to return after we are husband and wife. We will never forget our fabulous weekend at the Bell-Clemmons House and we thank Cathi and Rick for making it absolutely perfect.

  • Lucas & Wendy

    Once again another wonderful stay. The house is always so beautiful and your food is out of this world. Love the conversations with the two of you. This is definitely our anniversary spot.

  • Eddie & Emily

    Thank you for making us feel home away from home. I had three things I was looking for when we set out for our “baby-moon.” Somewhere relaxing, walking distance to everything, and some great food. The Bell-Clemmons and Southport have made that happen. We will be back! The next time we'll stop by when we make a quick drive down with our little girl to pop in and say hello! Thanks so much! Looking forward to staying with y'all again!

  • Jessica & Brian

    We have so enjoyed our first B&B experience because of y'all! The cold weather this weekend is my only complaint!

From the delicious breakfast, fabulous appetizers, and little touches such as chocolate and a fully stocked mini-fridge... these are just a few things that set your B&B apart from the rest! The entire B&B is exceptionally clean. I can tell you take great pride in the Bell-Clemmons House. We will recommend this place to everyone. Can't wait to come back! Thanks and God Bless!

    What a lovely B&B with lovely hosts, Cathi, Rick, and Molly. We truly felt like we're part of the “family” instead of just guests. The home has a comfortable, artistic feel and you can tell that Cathi and Rick love the home and the community of Southport. We truly emjoyed all the thoughtful touches – quality linens, always off makeup cloths, the delicious baked treats wonderfully filling breakfasts, well-appointed porches- the list could go on. We certainly had a great time in Southport – made all the better by our stay at Bell-Clemmons House! Until we return,

Your home is lovely, so clean, so relaxing, with a big comfy bed, delicious food, and great hospitality!

  • Nikki & Richard

    Our stay could not have been more spectacular! The room was beautiful with a most comfy bed. We looked forward to returning to the room to read and simply enjoy our surroundings. And the food was amazing. It was a treat throughout the day... The breakfast was always outstanding, but the other foods were equally wonderful, ie: the pizza when we arrived, the chocolate macaroon cookies, the zucchini bread... and the chocolate and wine throughout. We feel most pampered and ready to return to our lives re-charged. And we do plan to return... often!

  • Chris & DeAnne

  • Ann & Terry

    his was our first stay at a B&B and we're afraid you've set a bar that will be impossible for others to meet. This is a lovely home away from home, beautifully decorated with every need quietly anticipated and filled. We can't wait to come back! Thank you!

We enjoyed dinner at Port of Call and Joseph's Italian, both very good! Some of the area places close early but we got to hear 2 songs at the Yacht Basin Eatery tonight, Sunday before the band stopped We only had dessert here but it was nice sitting right by the water. Enjoying the porches and the breakfasts were great! We made 2 trips to Wilmington but it was nice coming back to this relaxing inn.

  • Donna

    Yesterday afternoon while I was getting my suitcase out of the car a young couple with a 7-8 year old child walked by....they stopped to admire the house and asked me how much it cost to stay at your lovely B&B. I was happy to tell them the approximate rates and how very clean it is....they walked by about an hour later admiring yet again......sooooooc I think you will soon get another guest coming to the Bell-Clemmons House! I came here based on a recommendation of a friend and I'm not the least bit dissappointed! When I return, it will be with my husband who is looking forward to seeing your place! You ge an A+ !

  • Jeremy & Stephanie

    We travel to Southport quite often for day trips away from our normal day to day routine. Last year we stayed at the Bell-Clemmons for the first time and fell in love. We have returned and are still in love with the B&B. It has now become a place where we l take time to do nothing but nap and sit on the amazing porch with the majestic oak tree to take our worries away. The Bell-Clemmons helps us to relax and restore simplicity in our lives which can sometimes be full of to-do lists while always on the go. Than you for creating such a welcoming and relaxing atmosphere Its home away from home and we will carry the memories we have created always. Peace and Love,

  • Dave & Laura

    Such a quaint and comfy spot is the Bell Clemmons B&B!

    We felt right at home the moment we stepped on the shady front porch. It's location is an easy walk to the darling town, to dining and shopping. Breakfast was spectacular both days, and Bev, the inn keeper was gracious and thoughtful. Our "Key West" room was very cozy, clean and well appointed. We will definitely stay there again when we visit Southport.

  • Eddie & Betsy

    We had a very comfortable night in the Savvanah room. Looking forward to a yummy breakfast. Hope to return soon for another visit.

  • Dot & Bruce

    We certainly enjoyed our stay in your lovely home. The breakfasts were excellent in every regard. Your suggestions for entertainment and dining were right on the mark. The Savannah room is beautiful as is everything else. Best wishes.
