Why Rhonda Schoolfield chose Historic District

The Woodbury-Hoggard House is a historically significant structure, built in 1854 ... and one of the finest homes in Downtown Wilmington. Rhonda & Jim spent 5 years meticulously restoring this Italianate to her former glory. In 2004, they won the Preservation Award for their efforts.

What makes this Condo unique

This one bedroom, one bath retreat features a private entrance on 5th Street. Enjoy the beautiful dining alcove set in a bay window with a western exposure providing dazzling sunsets. This suite has been featured on the Christmas Candlelight Tour of Old Wilmington. The extraordinary hand carved mahogany mantle with one-of-a-kind Italian tiles and original plaster ceiling moldings were the stars of the show. In the light-filled (fully equipped) kitchen, you’ll find a Bosch dishwasher, JennAire stove, and a side-by-side refrigerator with water and ice dispensed through the door. The large bedroom features a King bed and the sofa in the living room converts into a Queen sleeper. Luxurious linens for four guests are included. A small office is perfect for working at home. A special monthly rate makes luxury affordable.

                                                              I believe this was my fifth stay in this lovely unit! It feels like home to me. I have prepared so many wonderful meals in the adorable kitchen and enjoyed sitting around the dining room table for hours with my family. Rhonda has fantastic taste with the decor and her artwork, which adorns most walls, is fascinatingly beautiful. It is quiet, peaceful, comfortable and relaxing. The WHH is my only go-to spot to stay when visiting Wilmington. There is nothing about this apartment that feels like a "rental".

                                                              Magic words .... when you say "it feels like home" ... you bring tears to my eyes (<: That is precisely Our Goal ... Thank You!

                                                              Wonderful Place to Stay

                                                              We love staying at The Woodbury-Hoggard House. I have stay in Suite 1, 2 and 3, over the last two years. All are beautiful and very clean. Special touches throughout, love the fresh flowers!

                                                              My husband and I are currently renting this lovely apartment and could not be happier. Beautiful inside and out. Rhonda is the perfect host and even included special touches such as fresh flowers and a bottle of wine. Will definitely stay here again during our next visit to Wilmington.

                                                              Very clean & nicely decorated, great location in the historic district!


                                                              We stayed over the 2016 New Years weekend and it was just close enough to downtown restaurants & night life. The house is well maintained and updated amenities. Parking super easy right out on 5th Avenue. Rhonda was a pleasure to work with and we plan on coming back! Thank you for a great weekend 🙂
