La Polena's 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.  Their themed rooms pay tribute to North Carolinas 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.   Hop on a bicycle and ride through town, just blocks away.  If conversation is your fancy, enjoy the Carolina Room overlooking the lush grounds or mingle with other guests during happy hour and hors’ doeuvres served daily at 6:00 pm.
