We at the Robert Ruark Bed and Breakfast would like to welcome you to Historic Southport, North Carolina, and to the elegant Victorian accomodations and rooms that inspired many of Author Robert Ruark’s great literary works.

Popular author Robert Ruark, a world renowned syndicated columnist who became a house hold name during WWII, spent much of his childhood in the mansion and penned his novel "The Old Man and the Boy" as a memoir of his boyhood years spent in Southport.

We hope you'll take the opportunity to browse our website and bed and breakfast blog and eventually enjoy a memorable and pleasant vacation stay. Browse our rooms and availability.
