My wife and I stayed at the Port City Guest House while we were in town for a wedding in downtown Wilmington. Very convenient location and a charming home despite a tight parking area and smaller common spaces. Sophie was a very nice and energetic inn keeper and cooked a huge breakfast for the guests. It was a packed house... More

This gracious and friendly guest house is within walking distance of Wilmington's historic downtown. The rooms are large and elegant and very comfortable. Except for the Green Room, bathrooms are not en suite (but are private and large and close by). Breakfasts are stupendous, and the inn keeper, Sophie, is a wonderful cook, host, and provider of snacks and information.... More

We stayed in the Green room, which is the only guest room with a private bath, and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Sophie is a warm, charming hostess and made us feel comfortable from our arrival til our... More

This a charming old home very conveniently located to all of the festival activities. The house is beautifully decorated, rooms are comfortable and Sophia was a very charming hostess and great cook. Had a wonderful experience and would return again.

My husband and I spent two nights at this elegant southern home. Each roon was a decorator's delight. Sophie is a gracious hostess with the pm cocktail hour a time to exchange the days events with other travellors. Spacious bedrom, firm matress, which I loved and private bathroom down the hall.

This is truly a hidden gem. Cozy clean well-maintained historic house close to downtown with parking and modern laundry facilities! What more could you ask for? How about a delightful host and innkeeper, delicious and abundant breakfasts, wine and cheese in the afternoons, good conversations, great books all over the place. Top notch!

It was served at a 10 people table and all the guests ate at the same time, we started at 8:00m and did not leave thtable till 10:00.... More

My wife and I have stayed in several B&B's over the years and we are always a little skeptical of glowing reviews . While not on the waterfront (like some other more expensive ones we considered), its a quick 5 minute ride in an area of many beautifully maintained historic homes. This is clearly made up for by its charm... More

This B & B offers a tremendous deal considering the mega breakfasts and afternoon/eve drinks and snacks, all part of the deal. The owner and host, Sophie, offers a lovely character Southern home with veranda and gardens in a quiet but good location just a short drive to Wilmington's riverside attractions. It is also easy to drive to the beaches... More
