"We rented the house for our son's wedding. It was a great home base.The home is VERY spacious inside. Old home charm updated with all modern amenities. I cannot recommend this property more highly. The house is great but the responsiveness and customer service is even better."

"Just what the doctor ordered. Rest, relaxation, rejuvenation. Quaint, comfortable, and cozy. Convenient to the beach, shopping, and local tourist sites. It is nice during the humid heat of the summer to come back to the house to cool down and relax. The Pineapple Inn is exactly as described. Great place to visit."

"Toured this property recently for a yoga retreat I am planning with fellow teachers. This fun space has been renovated nicely and still reflects and honors the past history of the home. While it does only have 2 bedrooms, there is a pull out couch to accommodate 2 more. We should all be able to fit and still feel like we have our space. The location is quiet and peaceful and there are many parks and views to walk to. Looking forward to renting this property, thanks for the tour!"

Wonderful, Gracious Property Filled with History, Hospitality, and Southern Charm
"We had out best visit ever, to Wilmington, when we stayed at The Dames Inn. The property gave us an abundance of beautiful, comfortable, common areas, as well as plenty of private nooks when we wanted to read a book or relax. My husband and I loved having coffee every morning on the intimate screened porch overlooking the sweet gardens. Our girls loved the living room and sun room for hanging out with their friends. My husband used the library when he needed to work. And we enjoyed hanging out with our adult daughters and their friends on the front porch in the evening. We all loved the porch swing, especially my elderly mother. Her eyes grew misty as she sat on the swing, and I know it was taking her back in time.
My husband and I were thrilled with all the history in the home. We loved learning about the Dame and all her adventures, including with Mother Teresa. We also loved exploring the nearby cemetery where the Dame and the original owners of the house are buried. It is a beautiful place.
The Dames Inn is welcoming and comfortable in every way, and also has an abundance of easy parking. We loved being in the historic district, and will forever consider the neighborhood surrounding the Dames Inn our favorite in Wilmington. I can't say enough good things about the location, with its close proximity to the downtown water front restaurants, the beach, and shopping. At the Dames Inn a family can easily come and go without worrying about losing a parking spot. From now on, we will always come back to the Dames Inn!"
