Discover a wonderful way to enjoy a visit to downtown Wilmington in your own private guest house. Built in 1907 as one of the city's first automobile garages, this cottage boasts 456 sq. ft. of single story elegance in the shadow of some of Wilmington's finest historic homes. It is architecturally beautiful and the creative and eclectic use of space makes for a comfortable totally private stay in the Port City. As a guest of the garage, you can experience all the city has to offer. Take a walk downtown to one of the interesting museums, tour the Battleship North Carolina or just spend the day leisurely on Wrightsville Beach, a mere 15 minute drive from downtown. We supply all the necessities for a day by the sea, beach chairs, sun umbrella and a cooler are there for your convenience. The cottage was recently renovated with all of the latest amenities, featuring hardwood and marble floors, 10' ceilings, a fireplace and a full size kitchen with all the essentials.
