Excellent Vacation Experience

My husband and I went to Wilmington for a weekend and decided to stay at a B&B for a change. We truly loved our stay at this Port City Guest House. Sophie is an excellent hostess and made us feel like part of her family. The inn is absolutely gorgeous. There was a perfect balance between privacy and entertainment. We will definitely go back.

We stayed in the Bistro Suite with the dining package. They suggested a wonderful restaurant and had delicious chocolate covered strawberries waiting in our room. Breakfast was so good. Looking forward to our next stay.

An itimate place with a grand view!

A very fine place to stay and great staff! Everything from arrival to departure was handled with the kind of service you would expect at the Ritz! Highly recommended!
