Beautiful location convenient to everything!

We think you'll love our listing because it's been recently, lovingly and painstakingly remodeled, so most everything is new! It's open and bright, but still cozy and inviting and it's in a great, centrally located, safe, neighborhood. We've opened the kitchen and dining area to the living room to create a great space. We have all new cabinets and counters, with a center island that's the perfect gathering space for everyone. Just through the french doors in the kitchen is a large deck for overflow dining or just for hanging out. The backyard is huge and completely fenced. Back inside... all the bedrooms have been decorated for comfort as well as beauty. The beds are made with soft comfy linens and fluffy comforters and each bedroom is equipped with two luggage racks for your convenience. We have a brand new 49" Smart TV to stream Netflix, Hulu, etc., a new Sony Blue Ray Player and hundreds of DVD's from which to choose. Our kitchen has been stocked with everything you need to feel at home, including a juicer, both Keurig and Mr. Coffee coffee makers, a toaster and electric griddle (for those pancake breakfasts) and a Kitchen Aid mixer in case you want to whip up a batch of cookies. Our bathrooms are stocked with lots of fluffy towels, Dove body wash, shampoo/conditioner and we even have a blow dryer. Our laundry room has a GE washer and Dryer, laundry detergent, a full size ironing board and iron. All you really need to bring are your clothes and your toothbrush! We have a queen bed in the Master Bedroom, a full bed in the second bedroom, two twin beds in the 3rd bedroom and a queen sofa bed in the living room. We're a great choice for the solo adventurer, romantic getaways for couples, wedding guests, graduations, family reunions and the many festivals and sporting events that happen in our area. We can handle up to 8 guests comfortably.

Our guest house is located in Forest Hills, one of Wilmington's most sought after neighborhoods. As the name implies, Forest Hills is filled with beautiful mature trees; Oaks laden with Spanish Moss, lovely tall Pine trees, fragrant Magnolias and flowering Dogwoods, to mention just a few. We also have thousands of Azaleas, that during the spring come alive with magnificent color making our neighborhood look magical. Because of this beauty and our lovely historical homes, our neighborhood is frequently used for filming by EUE Screen Gems Studio.

We are walking distance to a lovely coffee shop, Port City Java, Burnt Mill Creek, a great neighborhood pub, and Indochine, the most popular Thai Restaurant in town. We are just off Market Street (US 17) so getting just about anywhere is easy. We offer off street parking for two cars in our designated parking area and additional parking inside our gated yard. We are just minutes to the airport, Historic Downtown Wilmington and The Cape Fear Riverfront, the shopping malls and Wrightsville Beach.

About Beth Wittmer

I am a native of Wilmington, I love this city and I cannot imagine living anywhere else! My husband and I bought the house 6 months after we got married almost 25 years ago. We moved when our children were little to a larger house, but I will always love that first home of ours so when the opportunity arose to remodel it and get to decorate it I jumped in with both feet! My husband and I and our kids have all worked together to make the house a wonderful place for guests. I have always wanted to own a B&B so I am thrilled to be able to make my dream a reality.

Beth Wittmer purchased this House in 1991

Why Beth Wittmer chose Forest Hills

I used to ride through this neighborhood as a child and look at the beautiful homes and gorgeous yards and I'd say I'm going to live here one day and sure enough not only have I lived in one house, but now we live in another house in this same neighborhood! I can truly say there is no where in Wilmington that I'd rather live.

What makes this House unique

I loved this house from the moment that I walked in it was like I already felt at home there. It's always been such a cozy, inviting home and with the remodeling that we have done it's even better, brighter, more airy, but still cozy. Everything is new... we've opened up some walls and reconfigured the layout so that we now have a split design with the master bedroom on one side of the house and the other bedrooms on the other, with the living room, kitchen and dining area in between, which I really love.

                                                            Can’t beat the location in Wilmington with this wonderful home. Close to shopping, restaurants, everything. Cozy, beautifully decorated home with all amenities. Owner was wonderful to deal with. Perfect for our stay in Wilmington.

                                                            We had a wonderful time.

                                                            Beth met us upon arrival. She is such a sweet person. We loved how well furnished and how clean her home and property was. The location was perfect for our downtown adventures. We were there for our grandson's wedding. If we are ever in Wilmington again, would love to stay there.

                                                            Great Home

                                                            Jackie K.

                                                            Beth was a delight to deal with. The home was clean and bright, comfortable and convenient location. I would highly recommend this property for a family as it's in a beautiful and respectable neighborhood.

                                                            Loved our stay!

                                                            Molly W.

                                                            Our team was traveling for business and stayed for over a week. It was perfect for us. A beautiful home, open airy feel. We didn't want to leave.

                                                            Immaculate and sweet. Great Location

                                                            This was a perfect perch for our family of 4 (with grown children). Clean and conveniently located for our excursions, we especially loved how attentive Beth was to our needs.

                                                            Owner's Response:

                                                            Thank you so much, Liz! It was a pleasure meeting all of you and hope you’ll visit again.

                                                            Excellent location. Great house for our family of 5.

                                                            We loved our stay at Forest Hills in Wilmington. Excellent location. Nice neighborhood. The house was comfortable and nicely decorated. Beth was very helpful. She met us at the house when we arrived for an orientation. She made sure we had everything we needed for our visit. We would definitely stay here again!
