“Perfect!”
Reviewed 20 June 2013

This is such an amazing B & B. The host is very knowledgeable and creative. This is evident throughout the house as there are nice touches everywhere from fresh flowers in the rooms to Chocolate Kisses on the fireplace mantel in our room. The breakfast was divine at 9 with fresh fruit, pancakes or french toast, and great coffee. For those who want coffee earlier, there was a carafe on the buffet upstairs outside the rooms at 8 AM. This home is within a short walk of downtown Wilmington and in a neighborhood of other historical homes....brick road included. So glad we made it back. Thanks Scott!

Great host, huge room and a lovely breakfast. Wi-Fi is available but no TV which is no big deal as there are so many wonderful venues available in this charming town ... you shouldn't BE wasting your time with TV. Dine at riverfront while you're there.

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!

Room Tip: As I single I enjoyed my cozy "Serenity" room at the back of the house. However, the coup...

This Inn is not only well located in Wilmington, being close to the Historic District and the Downtown area... but the owners make everyone feel so welcome... This is a very hard business as many Inn operators know.. so for the owners that have operated this Inn for 15+ years to treat you like you were their first guest is amazing. Additionally, their past professional food experience makes their restaurant recommendations just that much more credible.
My only complaint would be that I was ready for coffee at 7:00 so I had to venture out on my own to the local Java Store in town.... just 2 minutes away... but it would have been nice to not have to leave the Inn.
The breakfasts were extremely good.... tipping the fact that Scott had extensive food background. Very helpful hosts, not found in every Inn these days.

Room Tip: Room # 5 was just a tad small with only a 'love-seat'.... we noticed the other rooms were la...

We stayed for 3 nights and had a lovely time. Scott was the perfect host, he offered great insight and options for things to do and places to eat during our stay. The breakfasts at the inn were absolutely delicious! The rooms were nicely decorated with beautiful antiques, very clean and comfortable. We stayed in the peace room. I would definitely recommend this b&b to anyone visiting this special town!

Very peaceful setting. Historic homes, gardens, antique shops, and many fine restaurants are within a short, pleasant walk. Comfortable porch for reading or sipping coffee before breakfast. And the breakfast is truly superb. We'll be back again and again.

Room Tip: They are all really nice. Love and Joy have king size beds.

This is a great B&B in a quiet part of town although its only a few minutes walk to the town centre. The house itself is stunning inside especially the entrance hall. Scott is very helpful and gave us a map of town and recommendations of good eating places. Highly recommended.
