Property description


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. It has been professionally decorated with contemporary furniture and treasured antiques. The separate bedroom has an antique queen size bed, luxurious linens and includes Egyptian cotton towels and robes. Other upscale touches include 2 flat screen tv's, in ceiling stereo system and free wifi.
Sit outside and enjoy your morning coffee or evening glass of wine in your private, beautifully landscaped garden. This secluded location affords privacy and yet is a short 6 block stroll to the river, restaurants and shops. The popular Thalian Hall and the Bellamy Mansion are within a 3 block walk. Screen Gems Studios is just a short 2.5 mile drive from our front door, making this so convenient to take a fun and interesting tour.
The home has been lovingly restored by its owners for their private use. Their attention to detail shows, making this a truly unique place to stay for less than the cost of a hotel room. A one of a kind treasure and a wonderful way to enjoy all of Wilmington's weekend activities. The location is perfect for spending time at the beach, while enjoying the river walk and dining downtown in the evenings. With the recent addition of a full size washer and dryer, it is also a amazing place for a short time stay for out of town professionals for a week or a month.... whatever you need.
Please email the owner for rates and availability for your specific dates. Please take a look for yourself, you will not be disappointed .
**Sorry, no smoking or pets are allowed.**

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2010

Why the Owner Chose Historic District, Wilmington, NC, USA:
We are transplanted northerners who have fallen in love with the port city of Wilmington. It has all the charm of Charleston and Savannah , but much less crowded and laid back. We enjoy the proximity to nearby beaches.... we consider it the best of both worlds.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
This location is the perfect blend of urban and residential, a mixture of historic architectural charm with all the newest modern comforts . It is close to all the downtown activities, yet worlds away from it all ..... come enjoy something that is truly one of a kind.
