We had the most lovely weekend stay with Sophie, she is absolutely the ultimate hostess. She greeted us when we arrived, had breakfast and coffee on the table every morning and invited us to wine and treat hour every afternoon. She was quick to give recommendations and tell us the history of Wilmington (and of the ghosts in the house). You can tell she loves hosting because she is fantastic at it. We stayed in one of the rooms towards the middle of the house and had no trouble sleeping, the bed was comfortable and no noises disturbed us. It was our first bed and breakfast experience, and is very much so an experience. Sophie definitely makes the experience!

My stay at Port City was wonderful. The hospitality and breakfast was above what I had expected and we felt like we were staying with family.

This is a lovely house with a great old lived-in feel and is fresh, airy and incredibly comfortable. Our hostess, Sophie, is a delightful, energetic and very thoughtful lady who wined and dined us as we came and went. She is above and beyond in her gracious ways making it feel like a visit home.

We spent a fabulous birthday weekend in Wilmington at the Port City Guest House! The owner, Sophie Johnson, was incredibly warm, generous and made us feel like family! The house is beautifully decorated with several antiques, gorgeous furnishings and comfortable rooms throughout. The breakfast was amazing with an array of breakfast items to choose from each morning cooked to our perfection. Afternoon wine, cheese, meats and bread along with pleasant conversation on the large front porch was very relaxing. We stayed in the Green Room with its own bathroom. It was spacious, elegant and very cozy. We slept well both nights. Sophie surprised my husband with a birthday cake and we all sang Happy Birthday to him and enjoyed a huge slice with our guests. It was more than we had imagined and we were thankful for the true Southern Hospitality we received. Susan Divine

We aren't big bed and breakfast people but had a lovely stay. The proprietor, Sophie is very friendly and extremely accommodating. She takes the attitude that her home is your home while you visit. Anything you need, she is quick to come to your assistance. Breakfast and snacks were more than we could expect. She gave us choices, which was very helpful since I have several dietary restrictions. If you like bed and breakfasts, we would definitely recommend you stay.

We were looking for a place to stay in Wilmington to celebrate my boyfriend's birthday which happened to fall on Labor Day Weekend. Many of the hotels were overpriced due to the holiday and several of the bed and breakfasts were filled. I came across Port City Guest House and knew immediately it was where we wanted to stay based off previous guests reviews. When I met Sophie the owner I felt like I was meeting a celebrity because so many of the reviews spoke of how wonderful she was and let me tell you she truly is wonderful. We have stayed in several bnbs and she is by far the most hospitaible owner we have experienced. Upon arrival I was greeted with a hug and from that moment on we became friends. The food was incredible and we enjoyed dining with the other guests. There are 4 rooms so our breakfast was intimate with 1 or 2 other couples depending upon the day. We throughly enjoyed our stay and will most definitely be back.

My wife and I visited Wilmington the 2nd week of July and stayed at the Port City Guest House. There is no way the rooms could disappoint. What you see is what you get. They're beautiful. Sophie, the owner of the inn is wonderful, is a real treat. When the term "southern hospitality" was coined, they had Sophie in mind. Sophie is extraordinarily gracious and generous, she certainly loves her job and the guests she serves. Highly recommended.
