A story that's definitely worth hearing. The history and craftsmanship alone will leave you in complete awe. This little gem is much more than a elegant location to hold a wedding, simply beautiful.

We attended the opening reception of the local Cape Fear Camera Club's "Images Of Fine Distinction" which are currently on exhibit until near the end of August, 2015. The history and the architecture make the visit worthwhile. There are not a lot of furnishings which actually helps to keep the rooms from feeling crowded.

The house and grounds are as beautiful as the pictures indicate, and the history of the house and especially the slave quarters was fascinating. However, although there are some informational signs in a few of the rooms, they basically repeat the information from the introductory video. So if you opt for the self-guided tour, there's not a lot to do... More

Attended a wedding at this location and it is absolutely a wonderful venue for such an event. History and beauty all rolled into one.

We took advantage of the 3 house tour package, of which the Bellamy Mansion was one of those homes. The tour guide was fantastic and had many interesting stories pertaining to the homes history. For a historic home that is open to the public, it was sparsely furnished, with period pieces although most were not original to the home. This... More

We had Marti as our tour guide and she was great. The house is about 10,000 sq feet if I remember correctly. Was a great thing to see. The only problem I had was that our group probably had 35 people in it and it was hard to get in the rooms and hear and stay focused with a group... More

The Bellamy Mansion is well worth the effort to see. While the house is not crammed with period pieces of furniture it is worth the effort to see.

This place was something interesting to see. We went on a self-guided tour. It was definitely neat to learn all the different history of the house . I would say that it was both a fun and educational experience, we took my 12-year-old niece with us when we went and she really seemed to enjoy it.

I chose to visit the Bellamy Mansion based on it's tripadvisor rating, and I'm glad I did. There is easy off road parking. There is an admission. The guided tour begins with an interesting video giving background of this pre-civil war family home located in downtown Wilmington. The video is shown in what was the carriage house, and proceeded to... More
