Southport’s Figurehead

Southport’s grand Bed and Breakfast for those who demand simple elegance.


Our Southern style estate overlooking the Cape Fear River offers the perfect balance between a modern simplistic design and old world warmth.  If you’re looking for something out of the ordinary, Southport’s Figurehead is your destination.

Our themed rooms pay tribute to North Carolina’s history.  Enjoy a book or the newspaper with a cup of coffee or tea in the Reading Room, relax with a massage in the Crow’s Nest or take in the passing river life on one of the double covered porches.

If conversation is your fancy, enjoy the Carolina Room overlooking the lush grounds, or mingle with other guests.

Or, hop on one of our bikes and ride through town, just blocks away.

It’s time to treat yourself…

Are you ready to create memories that will last a lifetime?
