Perfect for a grown-up getaway! Enjoy an authentic downtown experience in this charming 1890’s Victorian cottage. You will be amazed how quickly you can slip into the relaxed vibe and easy going pace of life here. Ideally located in the heart of the historic district and featured on the carriage tour, this 2 Bdr/2 Ba lovingly restored home is just 1½ blocks from the Riverwalk, and an easy walk to all the shops and restaurants of our fabulous Port City.
Inside you will find everything you need to feel right at home, or better yet, on vacation! The house has Wi-Fi throughout and features a lovely front parlor with fireplace, a comfy den with 42” HDTV, sunny dining room, fully-stocked kitchen with gas stove, and 2 cozy bedrooms. One has a queen bed with pillow-top mattress and en-suite bath w/ shower tub. The other, a double bed and writing desk. There is also a second full bathroom. Feel free to travel light: beach towels, chairs, picnic cooler, and coozies are provided for you to take to Wrightsville Beach-- just a 15 minute drive away. Or head to Carolina & Kure Beaches on your way to explore Ft. Fisher 30 minutes down the road along the Cape Fear River.
While the house is not wheelchair accessible, it is a great choice for travelers who have mobility issues. It is one story and has only 3 shallow steps at the entryway. There are also ceiling fans in each of the bedrooms along with central A/C to ensure you stay comfortable on those balmy Carolina nights. The quiet of this particular street is a welcome surprise to almost everyone who comes here-- typically only the sound of horses clopping by or a passing neighbor saying hello that risk disrupting your afternoon snooze on the porch. And rest assured that after dark you would never know a vibrant night life is underway just a few blocks away.

About the owner: I was fortunate enough to move to Wilmington over 10 years ago thanks to my career in coastal management. I absolutely loved living there, and have really enjoyed renovating the house over the years (a never-ending process!) Recently I began a new chapter in Vienna, Austria. But this cottage and Wilmington are so special to me, I wanted to know I could always come home before setting up shop in Europe. The perfect solution? Sharing this wonderful spot with others!
I also love to travel, and am delighted to be part of creating a memorable travel experience for guests. Inside you will find lots of attention to detail to ensure your visit is relaxed, cozy, and comfortable. The property manager lives right around the corner and the two of us take great pride in making sure you have a lovely stay. Enjoy & welcome to Wilmington!
Why the Owner Chose Wilmington: I got lucky: Wilmington chose me. The vibe here is like no other, and this particular location downtown is hard to beat. It's so laid back and friendly. It's a place where not saying 'hey' to people you pass on the street borders on offensive. Hopefully after your first visit, you will understand what keeps bringing me back-- and will bring you back again too.
The Unique Benefits at this House: So close to everything! Once you get a good feel for downtown, you'll see each little street has it's own unique personality. Not only is this one perfectly tucked between the Riverwalk and the Antique District, but the beautiful old Magnolia & Live Oaks, brick streets, and fantastic neighbors make it a very special place.
