Last week, my husband and I planned a romantic get-away to Wilmington NC. We stayed at the Taylor House Inn located in Historical Downtown Wilmington. It was absolutely the most enjoyable experience. My husband and I often stay in bed and breakfast Inns, and this was BY FAR the best one we have ever stayed in.
The proprietors, Scott and Karen were fabulous as well. The meals were excellent, and the rooms were immaculate! Our room was very romantic, with candles and a canopy king size bed. The bathroom was just as great with a claw foot soak tub.
The house was decorated nicely for the Christmas Holiday. We felt very much at home. For breakfast, we had a romantic candle light meal prepared for us, which was delicious! Scott and Karen are excellent chefs!
The Inn is only a few minutes from the beach, which we were able to visit as well. We will be going back to the Taylor House Inn. It was an experience that will not be forgotten.
