Terry House worked well for me. Great location in charming historic area. I stayed a week, off season.Breakfasts were wonderful, staff and owner very nice. Nice historic building. My room was large and had 12 foot high ceiling which is guaranteed to increase ambiance in my opinion. No central sitting area so I worked in my room or at excellent public library within walking distance when I wasn't going to downtown Wilmington, about 10 mins. away. Wonderful town and nice park along river for walking. I am sort of a low impact traveler--don't want my room serviced every day and they were they were accommodating. Parking is on the street out front so depending on when you get there you may get a spot directly in front or a block or 2 away. Mattress very firm but that is good for bad back-- the alternative would have been intolerable. My second floor room faced to back where are there was a porch which would be a nice place to sit in the weather was better. A little too much light for my taste at night because of an outside light on the porch and I prefer dark at night. But a nice view to river. Met nice other guests at breakfast. I was happy with the price and plan to return.
