About the property

Welcome to 'The Gallery!' One visit and we know you will agree that The Gallery is a perfect getaway for a couple's or friends' retreat. 'A destination unto itself' as one of our guests best summarizes (see our online guestbook link below). Park your vehicle and take a short stroll to fabulous restaurants, shopping, art galleries, museums, dance clubs, pubs, cafes, day spas, historic tours, Screen Gem Film studio tours, live theater, and other local attractions -it's all within walking distance (some destinations even on the same block as The Gallery)! Or better yet, sit back, relax and enjoy the Trolley or the Historic Horse-Drawn Carriage Ride Tour - it's just a half-block down Market Street.

The Gallery is located at 112 Market Street in the heart of Wilmington's beautiful and nostalgic riverfront Historic District one short block away from the riverfront!

'The Gallery' is a fabulous, designer decorated, two-story 'Manhattan style loft' condo. Beautiful exposed brick walls can be found in the living room, bedroom, and bathroom; all refinished hardwood floors; new contemporary Scandinavian furniture/furnishings; an expansive collection of modern art displayed in every room; and wonderful color throughout! 'Lots of style and energy' as one of our guests describes (see our guests' comments link below).

The second floor bedroom is beautifully decorated and has a very comfortable, queen-size bed, full-size dresser w/mirror, Sony CD/radio/alarm clock. The luxurious livingroom leather sofa has a queen-size pullout. Fine linens are provided for both the queen bed and queen-size sleeper. The Gallery is very well equipped with the vacation and business traveler in mind (FREE WIFI). See our 'amenities' section below for a full description of all that The Gallery has to offer.

Spend the day at Wrightsville Beach (just minutes away) or Bald Head Island and return to 'The Gallery' to explore the southern charm of historic Wilmington in the evening. And remember, everything is within walking distance if it's a late night! We will be more than happy to make some restaurant, cafe, sight-seeing, etc. recommendations, just let us know - we definitely have some favorites that we would love to introduce you to!!!

So, come and enjoy what The Gallery and historic Wilmington have to offer, and 'live like a local!'

About Liz

My husband and I are from Michigan and relocated to NC over twenty years ago for our jobs. We fell in love with NC and North Carolinians! What a beautiful state and what friendly people! We are proud to call NC home!

Liz purchased this condo in 2004

Why Liz chose Historic District

We fell in love with historic, riverfront Wilmington and were spending so many weekends there that we decided to find a place of our own. The beauty and nostalgia of the area combined with the friendliness of the locals is what drew us and continues to draw us to Wilmington.

What makes this condo unique

Location was paramount in our search for our vacation spot in Wilmington. We wanted to be able to walk to everything and we finally found a condo that met that important criteria. It took some time to renovate, but was well worth it to be in the heart of historic Wilmington.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Liz,

I just wanted to take a moment to Thank You!

We had such a wonderful time in Wilmington … mostly stalking everything OTH: studios, basketball court, past and current filming locations and more. The beach was great too! (We added a small 50 SPF parasol to your collection of beach paraphernalia.)

My daughter met Shantel VanSanten and Bethany Joy Galeotti. But absolutely amazing was that Rob Buckley was strolling by as we were parking the car across the street. He was completely charming and even got her on the set as an extra for the day on Thursday … she is still ten feet off the ground and my sister-in-law and I along with her!!

I hope that the tradition of Dawson’s Creek & OTH continues for Wilmington. It would be sad if people did not get to see this charming location in the future now that OTH is finishing up!

Enjoy and thanks again.

WOW!! Fantastic Getaway! Will be back again!!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I throughly enjoyed The Gallery during our five night stay! The Gallery is beautifully decorated and was spotless and I am a clean freak! It is located in the middle of where you want to be...everything is within walking distance yet the condo is very quiet (no noise) which made for very relaxing sleep (we slept in every morning because the bed is extremely comfortable and I don't sleep in. So, I checked to find out what kind of mattress and wrote it down :). My husband and I frequently visit Wilmington and we are so glad that we found The Gallery and now have a home away from home!! "Two thumbs up!" "Raise the Roof!" "Love it!" You will be hearing from us shortly to book our next visit! Regards, April

Very well-appointed, stairs to bath

  • 5 of 5

Everything we needed for a weekend stay! Kitchen is fully stocked - even with basic spices. Many bath items (in case you left something). Do be aware that you have to walk up a flight of stairs to the bedroom and bathroom. We went at a fairly quiet time of year, and the condo windows face an alley, but if the city noise bothers you, bring a noise machine or fan. Great location in the historic district, we didn’t use the car at all.

Owner's Response: Glad to hear you enjoyed yourselves! Yes, the bathroom and bedroom are located on the second floor of the condo. The condo is located in the back of the building where you don't hear the busy street noise in the front of the building. The first floor window is glass block to further insulate, allow natural light and provide privacy. On the second floor we installed sound-proof windows so it is pretty quiet as most of our guests have commented. Thank you! :-)

Wonderful unique space in a great location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed there while competing in the Ironman competition taking place in town. Wonderful location. A lot of space and super quiet. As soon as you walk in there is a binder full of great information and menus to make your stay more enjoyable. We can’t wait to come back and stay again.

Owner's Response: So glad to hear that you enjoyed yourselves! Yes, we agree the location is great and that is why we chose this condo to enjoy our vacations in Wilmington. Close to everything.. you can hit Wrightsville Beach for the day (which is a short 15-20 minute drive) and then head back to Wilmington in the evening to clean up and hit the town.
