This B&B sort of crosses the line into the niche of boutique hotel. There is the self-serve breakfast bar with several choices and there is wine and snacks in the evening. The rooms follow a literary theme and are named and decorated accordingly. We stayed in the Pearl Buck room. Other than the overly-chummy shower curtain around the garden tub,... More

we stayed in the hemingway suite which has a giant garden jacuzzi tub that you can look out over the street in, thanks to the room's 3 sets of french doors. lovely sized private balcony overlooking the street and if someone would just trim the trees on the other side of the road you could see the cape fear river....

This is a really nice B & B. Very friendly owners, comfortable and clean rooms, excellent breakfast and superb location. Large parking area off the street in front of the hotel. If you need a place to stay in Wilmington that is very close to the riverfront with shops restaurants etc etc, this is it.

My husband and I stayed in the Kipling room at the Front Street Inn in Wilmington during a trip to NC. Our hosts, Richard and Polly ( and Clyde), were warm and pleasant, our room quiet and comfortable, and the breakfasts delish. The inn is walking distance to downtown and close to all the beautiful NC beaches. Wish we could... More

The inn is located only 1 short block from the waterfront on the south end of the river walk. There are nice restaurants and shops nearby on Water street and Front St. The management were very friendly and accommodated us with our little dog. They have one suite that they will allow a small dog called the Traverna. The parking... More

When you can combine a great location with warm hosts, real home cooked breakfasts and Inn Keeping family you want to call your own, you know you've found a great B&B. One of the reasons we choose the Front Street Inn was because it offered a great location--walking distance from the historic district shops and river walk and no more... More

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!!
