As the sun sets on this historic city, cool breezes, rocking chairs and porch swings await guests of the Taylor House Inn. Two lovely parlors offer a comfortable and elegant setting where guests can read, converse, sip sherry and listen to music.
Luxury greets guests in the five guest rooms, each with a private bath. Fine linens, carefully selected mattresses, central air conditioning and ceiling fans provide excellent sleeping comfort.
The quietly elegant dining room, with its fine china, crystal and lace curtained windows, set a gracious tone for the coming day in Wilmington. A full gourmet breakfast is served by candlelight, starting with seasonal fruits topped with yogurt, dried cranberries and granola. Savory entrees of french toast with Grand Marnier and peaches; sun-dried tomato and basil frittata; or lighter than air blueberry pancakes are served to start your day. Freshly baked muffins, gourmet coffees, assorted teas and blended fruit juice accompany your breakfast delights.
Lazy days can be filled with shopping for antiques; touring the historic district by horse drawn carriages, strolling along the river front with its many fine restaurants and boutiques; or visiting Wilmington's wonderful museums. Guests who want to explore the Cape Fear Coast can find beautiful beaches only minutes away.
Scott and Karen's warm hospitable charm; their attention to detail and their little extras all blend to create a memorable retreat.
Taylor House Inn is located at 14 North Seventh Street just off U.S. 17 & 74.
