My husband and I just returned from a wonderful weekend in Wilmington, NC, a city that is alive with a rich history and beautifully restored homes that are listed on the historical register. We stayed at one of these homes during our visit there. Our stay at Port City Guest House was absolutely wonderful! Sophie, our hostess, is an amazing... More

I can't say enough about what a wonderful weekend we had at the Port City Guest House! I could go on about the comfortable beds, the great water pressure in the shower, or even the AMAZING breakfast and snack hour offerings. But the real highlight of this place is Sophie, your hostess. She truly makes you feel like a welcome... More

Very much enjoyed our visit the Port City. Sophie, our hostess, was the perfect example of southern charm. Right after we checked in, she offered us a snack and a glass of wine. Food is the key word here. Breakfast each morning was huge. Just an example....eggs, waffles with yummy toppings and syrup, fresh fruit, juice, and that was just... More

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this lovely bed and breakfast. We were treated like family with delicious treats and a delightful breakfast. The location is very convenient to downtown shopping and restaurants. We hope to visit again soon.

Learned of this gem when looking for a place for my aunt & uncle to stay in October 2015- they had a great time, so returned with some girlfriends for a long weekend. Sophie's hospitality was top notch again and I fear my family will prefer staying with her when they come to visit Wilmington based on the food, comfort,... More

The moment you enter you will feel a great welcoming vibe. Smiling faces generous pours and a selection of outstanding entrees and appetizers will reward your decision to dine at the Port Land Grille. Don't forget everyone will know your name.

We love the beach and decided to stay in historic Wilmington instead of right on the beach for a change. It was a great choice! The house itself is beautiful-it reminded us of some of the historic homes we toured in Charleston, SC-and Sophie is of course an exceptional housekeeper. Her breakfasts are quite filling and in true Southern-style, she... More

It was my first experience at a B&B and I was in town solo for a business trip. Sophie made me feel very welcome, and the food and snacks were delicious. The home has so much character and the location is perfect for enjoying Wilmington. So inviting, friendly and gracious. It was a wonderful experience overall, and I can't say... More

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
