I found Taylor House Inn to be more than I bargained for. Located on a quiet street near historic downtown Wilmington, NC, this 1904 spacious home offers a perfect getaway. One can walk to shops, restaurants and tour venues. Rooms are spacious and comfortable. The innkeepers have lived in the area for over a decade and are very knowledgeable about places to see and things to do. In addition, owner Scott provided transportation and recommendations for a good locate mechanic when one of the guests experienced car trouble. Full breakfast is served daily and the hosts were attentive to their guests' dietary needs and preferences. I would recommend this inn to anyone who comes to Wilmington for business or pleasure (did I mention that WiFi is available?). I know you will find, as I did that this gem is more than you bargained for!
