My first stay at a B&B and it was a fabulous experience. The owner Sophie was gracious, warm, and friendly and treated her guests as if they were her own family. She is an amazing host and cook, always serving plenty of food. Use of laundry facilities and a personal parking space was an added plus. In walking distance to... More

My husband and I stayed at the guest house in May for 3 nights as part of our honeymoon and cannot recommend it highly enough. Sophie looks after you like it is a home away from home (if not better). There is always plenty of food and drink (breakfast and snacks) and a warm and inviting atmosphere. The rooms are... More

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

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
