A portion of each ticket sold benefits the Old Baldy Foundation, a nonprofit organization dedicated to maintaining North Carolina’s oldest lighthouse, built in 1817.

Self-guided tours of the Southern Living Idea House are offered Wednesday-Saturday from 10 a.m.-4 p.m. and Sundays from noon-4 p.m. from June 16 through September 17, 2017.

No bridge connects Bald Head Island to the mainland and travel on the island is by bike, golf cart or your own two feet. The ferry is located at 1301 Ferry Road in Southport, NC and ferry schedules can be found on Tickets for round-trip ferry passage are not included in tour cost and are purchased at the ferry terminal. The ferry does not take reservations and ferry service is offered on a first-come, first-served basis only. You do, however, have to book tram service to the Idea House. Because tram availability is limited, we recommend you book tram reservations both to and from the house prior to purchasing Idea House tickets. Tram reservations to take you to the house should be booked online at Select "Idea House" from the tram drop-down list online when you schedule tram service to the home and back. You can also rent a golf cart from Cary Cart Co. online at and explore the island. Cary Cart Co. is located a short walk from the Bald Head Island ferry landing.

The specially selected Idea House design team chosen by Southern Living includes builder Jeff Sanderson of Whitney Blair Custom Homes based in Ocean Isle Beach, N.C.; residential designer Eric Moser of Moser Design Group in Beaufort, S.C.; and interior designer Lindsey Coral Harper, who is originally from Cartersville, Ga., and whose studio is based in New York City. Located on a wooded homesite bordering The Common in Cape Fear Station, the Idea House is just a short walk from the island’s distinctive Southern Living Inspired Community, which offers homes for sale through Bald Head Island Limited Real Estate Sales.

Please note, the Idea House is a private residence and does not meet ADA accessibility requirements.
