Feel downtown Wilmington in this delightfully restored high-end home complete with modern décor and social spaces intentionally upfit for appreciating yourself while impressing your guests. This darling getaway has remained one of Wilmington's most celebrated homes since 1844 and is the ideal place to host your downtown stay, hold corporate meetings and events, celebrate a significant birthday, host a graduation dinner, or receive guests as "mother-of-the-bride" or "father-of-the-groom" while providing exceptionally more hospitality than a hotel suite.

The location is simply unbeatable. This architectural gem is within walking distance of the Cape Fear riverfront and within a block of trendy event venues, including The Atrium, Bakery 105, and St. Thomas Preservation Hall, award-winning eateries, music venues, water tours, striking horse-drawn carriage tours, Historic Foundation, Historical Society, and Community Arts Center.

As you enter this marvelous home away from home, you will be greeted by rift-sawn heart pine floors, an impressionable staircase, and 12-foot ceilings displaying art. Discover a roomy great room that can be separated into two separate living areas both furnished with handsome couches and chairs, carved granite fireplaces (decorative only nowadays), and many entertaining books. This space is ideal for entertaining and hosting meetings, events, or holidays with your appreciated ones. Spend countless hours chatting, planning your next adventures, and creating everlasting memories. The kitchen has been restored with luxury cooking appliances, which are hidden behind panels. The refrigerator is in the scullery kitchen and beside it is one of the two Bosch dishwashers. The modest oven is a Thermador speed oven. There is a Fulgor Milano undercabinet drawer that can be an additional frig, freezer, or wine cooler. There are two microwaves (one countertop and one drawer style). There is a Fulgor Milano gas range top, two kitchen sinks, and a coffee bar with an Espresso machine, coffee makers, toaster, and blender. The scullery kitchen can be closed off from the breakfast kitchen, if needed, and includes a rear entrance that can be accessed separately for catering. The home also features a covered front porch with stately columns fronting South 2nd Street, where you can dine alfresco, a back porch with breakfast seating, a side yard with hedges and a fountain, and a backyard for lawn games. A modern half-bath powder room is located on the first floor.

Upstairs, you will discover three pretty bedrooms, a laundry room with a washer/dryer, two modern bathrooms, multiple conversation areas, and a rear balcony with a bench swing. The primary suite enjoys an en suite bathroom with a restored glass-enclosed shower and a cavernous lounge area with a bespoke Cherrywood Japanese soaking tub. This space opens up to the laundry room. The two additional huge bedrooms share one full-size bathroom with a shower in a deep tub. A cozy conversation “Tea” room adjoins the main hall upstairs - the ideal place to have memorable one-on-one conversations, catch up on your e-mail, and get lost in a game or book.

Vacation rental home tips:

Money saving strategies:

  • June, July, and August are high season in the Wilmington, NC area. Reserve your Wilmington, NC rental home in the Fall or Spring shoulder seasons to get the benefit of beautiful weather while saving money and avoiding crowds.
  • Reserve your vacation rental as soon as possible. Rental schedules generally open twelve months in advance (or in September just after Summer ends). Many groups book their Summer rental homes during Thanksgiving and Christmas gatherings. Reserve before these holidays for best selection.
  • Active Duty and veterans of the US Armed forces may qualify for special discounts. Be sure to ask your prospective host whether your group qualifies for a reduced rate.
  • Property managers often offer guests an option to obtain trip insurance protection. Trip insurance, which generally costs between 1% - 5% of the base stay price, offers visitors reimbursement of their vacation costs for missed vacation time as a result of personal medical-related issues or weather, as well as evacuation charges, such as an unanticipated hotel or additional gasoline expenses. Trip insurance is definitely a life-saver if the unforeseen occurs. Ask your property manager for program terms and fees.
  • Many property management companies supply Wilmington, NC area visitors guide magazines which will include special deals, either offered directly by local businesses, or by way of a partnership between the rental management company and the business itself. You can also find visitors guide and coupon books at local gas stations and shopping centers.

Filter your search:

  • First, have your family choose a vacation week and a max budget.
  • Determine how many beds and the bed configuration your group needs. Classic estate home in heart of Downtown Wilmington curated for entertaining has 3 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms. If you need a larger or smaller rental, use our rentals search.
  • Precise descriptions of bedrooms and bed sizes & counts is usually available online. If they are not listed, call the property owner before booking the vacation property. Remember that most properties list the maximum guest capacity, which usually includes sofa beds and bunks.
  • If there's a particular Wilmington, NC attraction you are enamored with, keep an eye out for properties that are either nearby, or those that cater especially to your desires.
  • Proper accessibility amenities can make or break a vacation for persons with a disability. Confirm all required amenities are included before booking.
  • Do your family pets travel with you? Many vacation homes allow animals, but guidelines and restrictions apply. Allowable pet type, breed, and size are often limited. Ask your property manager before booking, and study your agreement! Extra fees or may be applied to your contract.

More tips for your visit:

  • Add the owner's phone number to your smartphone. Take a copy of check in/check out procedures.
  • During arrival, record any issues with the rental property and immediately contact the property manager. Record all correspondence just in case a dispute arises.
  • Ask questions. You may need instructions for a garage door opener, A/V setup or kitchen appliance. Contact your host. They are there to help! A brief text message prevents lots of difficulties.
  • Be a good neighbor! You wouldn't like disrespectful visitors disrupting your quiet neighborhood. Practice the golden rule for best judgement. If they like you, locals might even recommend great restaurants and scenic spots you would've never otherwise known about!
  • Don't forget to... Ask a local! Local residents can frequently help you find exactly what you're looking for. Who better to ask where to get the best seafood, have a great night out, or the best spots for crabbing?
  • Lock your vacation home while you are out and about. Keep your property safe!
  • Don't leave anything behind! Before departing, take a walk through the property to confirm you've collected all of your things. Make sure to check dressers, closets, and bathrooms for hidden treasure. Clean out the refrigerator and take or dispose of leftovers.
  • Record a video to document the condition of the property.
  • After your trip, leave a review! Property managers rely on excellent feedback to propel more reservations. They'll be thankful for your review. Alternatively, if something wasn't right, other vacationers will appreciate that you share your review and help them have the best future vacation. Be fair with your review. If something fell short of expectations, consider whether the owner could control the issue, and if so, whether they responded expeditiously to remedy it.
