The perfect location for wedding visitors and vacationers. Centrally located in town (truly walking distance to downtown restaurants and activities) makes it convenient to churches and reception facilities and after the wedding take a walking tour of historic downtown Wilmington right from our front door; or take a horse drawn carriage ride and learn about the history of this city; or take a trolley tour past the mansions and restored homes dating back to the American Revolution and Civil War; or just sit back and enjoy the visitors passing your front porch on their way to the farmer's market, Azalea Parade or Fourth of July fireworks. And for our wedding guests, the horse drawn carriage and trolley rides are popular means of transportation to the church or reception location
