My husband and I stayed here for our wedding anniversary. The room was beautiful and very spacious. The couples massage was wonderful. The hosts were so pleasant, personable and helpful. They even let us pick our room when we got there! Perfect location! Plan on making it an anniversary tradition!!

We travel quite a bit but this was our very first B&B stay. I don't know if this is an average B&B or if we were just incredibly lucky to start with a great one! We could not have been more comfortable. We were met at the front door and escorted to our room (Kipling). The room was simple and... More

Late on a rainy evening, we were greeted by the friendly and helpful staff. Our orientation included a personal tour and oral history of the inn. We were amazed at the large size and wonderful décor of our room. After settling in, the staff recommended several restaurants within walking distance of the inn. It was nice to walk among the...

The Front Street Inn is the perfect place to stay in Wilmington. Each room is unique in its design, and the touches are impeccable. We stayed in the Monet room, which had books filled with Impressionist art, as well as a claw-footed bathtub that Monet himself could have used (in my imagination :). The breakfast was delicious--pasteries, a hot egg... More

The room was comfortable (Jacques Cousteau room) and the bed was more comfortable than our own at home! The two breakfast we had there was better than any other meal we had while in Wilmington. Staff extremely friendly and helpful! The outside deck/patio right off our room was perfect for morning coffee and an afternoon glass of wine! Thank you!

At the end of a hectic driving day we by good karma selected this inn because of proximity to the board walk on the Cape Fear River. What a welcome surprise to find a tastefully renovated historic inn with distinctive suites and private parking. Our Suite was the one with Pearl Buck influenced decor and deserved to be in a...

Unplanned stay in Wilmington led us to a late reservation. The host couple was very welcoming and curious about their guests, and we got a comfortable room at a reasonable price. Breakfast was incredible. Definitely a address to remember if you stop in Wilmington!

Our club recently booked a group stay at the Inn. The rooms were clean and tastefully decorated with much attention to detail. Richard and Polly were most accomodating to allow our group to gather several times in the common areas of the Inn. Location was extremely convenient and within walking distance to most everything in Wilmington's historic district. We will... More

The hosts made the decision to choose this option a no-brainer. Friendly service, delightful breakfast and enough suggestions to make a short visit full of variety. The location near everything in town is a bonus. You can see the water and it is only a short one block walk to the extensive and inviting Riverwalk. The grounds are private, right... More

My wife and I spent two nights here in January. It was our first time at the Inn but when we walked in it was like we were old friends. Richard greeted us with a smile and with in minutes we were being shown around the inn. Although it was January, we were blessed with pleasant weather for that time... More
