Pet Friendly Home away from Home

5 on March 23, 2014

This place was great. Sophie is super nice and a great cook. My girlfriend and I stayed for 2 nights and we were greeted with an array of much needed snacks and wine upon arrival, after which we chatted with Sophie for a while about the town. She was extremely welcoming and made us feel like we lived in there while we stayed. She even offered to pick us up from downtown Wilmington if we didn't want to walk back and walk our dog for us if we were gone for too long. Breakfast was delicious both mornings, ready for us when we got up. I would definitely stay here again if back in the Wilmington area.

Amazing B&B experience

We had an amazing stay at Port City Guest House. Sophie was great, and definitely knows how to feed you! Afternoon wine and snack was a great touch. It is also pet friendly, so we were able to bring our small dog with us!

This was the perfect getaway for our anniversary! Sophie was so sweet! The food was AMAZING! And she even served snacks and wine! It was perfect and the location had a lot of options for activity! Over all it was a great experience and we hope to go back!

Wonderful food, beautiful house

My wife and I went on a short trip to the Carolina's, staying at different B&B's and this one, by far, was the best! Sophie was a joy, and she LOVES to feed you! The rate was very reasonable, the bed was comfortable, the food was too much. I say food, because there was much more than just a breakfast. Afternoon wine and snacks that never end. You don't even need to leave the house! Thank you for the hospitality Sophie!
