Simply the best! This B&B is well maintained, very clean and historically decorated to properly reflect the Victorian era. Set in a quiet pleasant neighborhood within walking distance to historical downtown Wilmington River Front Walk where you'll find plenty of restaurants, stores and mansions to tour. The owner (Scott) greeted us and took the time to orient us to the... More

We had a great visit at Taylor Inn back in July. My husband and I went for a weekend getaway. We are vegan and Scott, the owner, was able to accommodate us at at breakfast (and it was delicious!). We enjoyed morning coffee on the porch as well. Beautiful home! Would return.

Scott Clark was at the Inn to meet us and show us to our rooms. He took a lot of time telling us about the town as well as some very nice eateries. His recommendations were very good. Scott's breakfasts were very tasty and his presentation was first class. The Inn was well maintained and the "Love" suite was spacious,... More

We recently traveled through Wilmington on our 'possible retirement spot tour' through the southeast. Not sure how I stumbled on this gem on my phone while in route, but am so glad I did. Upon arrival our gracious host Scott was kind enough to spend time giving us a great orientation to the area. (Also, after a long, hot day... More

We stayed in the "Love" suite which was spacious, nicely appointed, and quite reasonable. Innkeeper Scott was an excellent host and spent considerable time going over things to see and places to eat in Wilmington, as we had never been there before. Breakfast was delicious! Overall the experience was quite positive and we will stay there again the next time... More

We stayed at Taylor House for a week on a holiday from Wales UK and found Scott to be a first class and entertaining host. His local knowledge of Wilmington, North Carolina beaches and surrounding area certainly added to our enjoyment of the area. The house is full of character and Scott brings imagination to his breakfast table, he is... More

My wife and I have stayed at the historic Taylor House before, had been looking to return for quite some time, and stayed there for the July 4th w/end. We’ve stayed in the PEACE Room every time, we requested it, and like that room. Prior to discovering Taylor House, we’d stayed at other places, our opinion however, if you’re going... More

Tucked away in a tree-lined neighborhood is this late Victorian house. The owners live on site, are very gracious, and the breakfasts are a wonderful to start a day of touring Wilmington. The owners can offer good restaurant choices, as well.
