Winter is wonderful in Wilmington (great performances, celebrations, and concerts!) ... contact Rhonda for a Free Calendar of Events. The Woodbury-Hoggard House is located within walking distance of the festivities ... and ... unlike most ... WE DO NOT CHARGE EXTRA FOR FESTIVALS OR HOLIDAYS!
WE DID IT AGAIN ... Wilmington was just voted "Best Alfresco Dining in America" ... and in 2014 our Port City was named "America's Best Riverfront"!!! The World has discovered Wonderful Wilmington. Come see for yourself what all the fanfare is about!
This elegant suite is located in the historically significant Woodbury-Hoggard House in downtown Wilmington ... situated high on the corner of 5th Avenue & Orange Street ... just 6 blocks from the Cape Fear River (America's #1 River Front!) ... close enough for strolling ... down to the RiverWalk to enjoy the fabulous sunsets ... to Thalian Hall for live performances ... to wine bars and pubs ... and, of course, to enjoy a magnificent meal at one of Downtown Wilmington's excellent restaurants! A short walk home to your accommodations in one of Wilmington's finest mansions transports you back in time ... and to a quiet, restful sleep.
When (and if) you are ready to get back in your car, take a 15 minute drive to the beautiful blue water at Wrightsville Beach ... drive just a bit further to Carolina Beach (great seafood!) ... or to historic Fort Fisher (Civil War Museum) ... and take the scenic ferry ride over to Southport and the Brunswick Beaches.
If you enjoy films, TV, and movie-star watching ... you have found the epicenter! Wilmington is internationally known as 'Hollywood East' ... home to the largest film studio outside of California. Since Hollywood first called in 1983, the Wilmington area has logged more than 400 film-related credits ... and the filming continues (Iron Man ... Sleepy Hollow ...) Filmmakers favor the mild climate, island beaches, varied landscapes and architecture, and historic river district. On the streets along the Cape Fear River, different tours depart by land and water, and virtually all mention sites from the hundreds of movies, TV series and other projects shot here.
Choose from a dozen different water tours ... many with live music and libations ... to fully appreciate the flora and fauna of the majestic Cape Fear River.
Historic Walking Tours and Horse-Drawn Carriage Tours take you back in time, providing interesting and colorful information about our rich heritage. (The Woodbury Hoggard House is included on one o0f the Carriage Tours).
After a full day of star-gazing ... windsurfing ... antiquing ... fine dining ... whatever you choose, you will love returning to this elegant one bedroom, one bath suite, furnished with antiques ... and featuring all the modern conveniences.
Stretch out in the King bed, dressed in fine European linens. The sofa in the living area converts to a queen sleep ... luxurious linens for both beds (and the bathroom) are included in your rental. Cleaning fees are also included.
The light-filled kitchen is fully equipped ... and includes a Bosch dishwasher. The dining table in the alcove seats six people. 14-foot ceilings are adorned with original plaster moldings and medallions ... and the space is filled with original art. The original hand-carved mantle is one-of-a-kind. There is an office space with roll-top desk. Enjoy high speed internet service ... a large, new HD TV featuring expanded cable service (including free Netflix and Amazon Prime) ... a small TV in the bedroom ... and free use of the washer and dryer.
The Woodbury-Hoggard House porch has been (and continues to be) home to much Southern Hospitality ... rocking chairs ... porch swing ... mint juleps ... you get the picture ( : Hope to see Ya'll round here soon!
