My husband, his brother, and I spent two delightful nights at The Taylor House B&B. Scott warmly greeted us, told us about the area, and gave us excellent recommendations on places to eat as well as marking them on a map for us. What a wonderful location! We were within walking distance of almost everything we wanted to see and do. The inn is beautifully decorated and spotlessly clean, and we enjoyed having iced tea outside our bedroom door in the afternoons as well as a choice of coffee or tea every morning. We are vegetarians, and Scott provided meatless breakfasts for us. This was our first trip to Wilmington, but we know where to stay the next time we go.
