Classic B&B in Wilmington, NC

5 on February 16, 2014

A traditional B&B experience done well. Located in a genuinely historic area near a restored waterfront filled with interesting restaurants and shops, all within easy walking distance. The hosts are engaging and helpful. Breakfast was wonderful. Chatting with the other guests was a treat. Well worth the drive from Charlotte. Highly recommended.


Wonderful B&B!

My husband and I had a very enjoyable mid-week stay at the Worth House B&B. The innkeepers are gracious hosts and their beautiful Victorian home with verandas and gardens provide a relaxing atmosphere both inside and out. The rooms are clean and spacious with private baths and lounging areas. Breakfast was delicious and truly filling - no need for lunch that day! The location is an easy stroll down tree lined streets to the riverfront, downtown shops and restaurants.


A great short visit

Doug and Margi were amazing. They were both very helpful and accommodating. The other guests made the visit that much more enjoyable. It was a fun quick trip to Wilmington. I hope to do it again in the future.


Really great B&B in Wilmington, NC

5 on July 08, 2013

My wife and I had the wonderful privilege of staying with Margi and Doug Erickson on two occasions in one week. We spent the 4th of July night with them and returned from a side trip to Frying Pan Tower (fptower.com) on July 7th. Every facet of their operation is 100% perfect. From the warm, by name, greeting upon arrival, to the perfectly clean and beautifully decorated rooms, to the great breakfast, this place was fantastic. We had some special requests due to this side trip and they accommodated us completely. They went out of their way, though this may be normal for them, to make sure our slightly strange needs were met. I cannot more highly recommend C. W. Worth House if you want a perfect experience at a Bed and Breakfast in Wilmington, NC. The reviews about C. W. Worth House cannot be wrong... and that is how we found them. Way to go Margi and Doug! We can't wait to come back!


Wedding weekend made perfect!

5 on June 10, 2013

As a Wilmington bride who was getting married in the downtown area, I wanted the perfect place to have my "getting ready" photos and the perfect room for my first night of marriage! I was so happy to find the CW Worth House. It is a gorgeous home with two fantastic innkeepers who when out of their way to make sure my wedding day was perfect!! I sincerely recommend the CW Worth House for any couple looking for a romantic getaway in downtown Wilmington or even another bride looking for a vintage feel the morning of their wedding. Thank you again, Doug and Margi!
