Bed & Breakfasts

spacer.gif (818 bytes)Travelers are often delighted by the high caliber of bed and breakfast inns in Wilmington, which are comparable to the finest inns anywhere. Most inns here occupy meticulously kept historic homes. Some are as casual as a pajama party while others are steeped in Victorian elegance. And innkeepers are typically knowledgeable about the area and will usually assist you with directions and in making reservations for shows, meals, charters and golf packages.

Bed and breakfast inns typically do not allow pets, smoking indoors or very young children unless by prior arrangement. Most establishments accept major credit cards and personal checks, especially for making payment in advance. Be aware that cancellations, even when made with the required notice, may incur an administrative fee, although you'll find most innkeepers in the region to be reasonable and fair. Also note that many bed and breakfasts require a full weekend lodging during the Azalea Festival and Riverfest (see our Annual Events chapter).

Price Code

Since prices are subject to change without notice, we provide only price guidelines based on per-night rates during the summer (high season). Guidelines do not reflect the 7 percent state/county and 1 to 6 percent room occupancy tax (taxes may vary by municipality or county). Some establishments offer lower rates during the off-season, but always confirm rates and necessary amenities before reserving. It may behoove you to inquire about corporate discounts even if they are not mentioned in our descriptions.
