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.

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!

I travel frequently for business and pleasure and have fallen for FRONT STREET INN. While drinking wine in the cute lounge area, I've met interesting people and picked up good local travel tips. The location is great and the people lovely.

We are originally from Wilmington, and every time we come back to visit family, we always book at stay at the Front Street Inn. We have stayed here at least 5 times, and have never been disappointed. The rooms are great, the location is so convenient, and breakfast is always very good too. We can't wait for our next stay!!

Both Richard (the owner) and his wife were warm and welcoming when we first arrived at the inn. They were also very friendly and were able to give great advice about the town and places to see and eat at.
