Thomas was so warm and welcoming! He was well traveled and shared many great stories. The rooms were wonderful and very well appointed. Breakfast was excellent and well presented. Would recommend this beautiful place to everyone!

This B&B sort of crosses the line into the niche of boutique hotel. There is the self-serve breakfast bar with several choices and there is wine and snacks in the evening. The rooms follow a literary theme and are named and decorated accordingly. We stayed in the Pearl Buck room. Other than the overly-chummy shower curtain around the garden tub,...

This is a really nice B & B. Very friendly owners, comfortable and clean rooms, excellent breakfast and superb location. Large parking area off the street in front of the hotel. If you need a place to stay in Wilmington that is very close to the riverfront with shops restaurants etc etc, this is it.

My husband and I stayed in the Kipling room at the Front Street Inn in Wilmington during a trip to NC. Our hosts, Richard and Polly ( and Clyde), were warm and pleasant, our room quiet and comfortable, and the breakfasts delish. The inn is walking distance to downtown and close to all the beautiful NC beaches. Wish we could...

The inn is located only 1 short block from the waterfront on the south end of the river walk. There are nice restaurants and shops nearby on Water street and Front St. The management were very friendly and accommodated us with our little dog. They have one suite that they will allow a small dog called the Traverna. The parking...

When you can combine a great location with warm hosts, real home cooked breakfasts and Inn Keeping family you want to call your own, you know you've found a great B&B. One of the reasons we choose the Front Street Inn was because it offered a great location--walking distance from the historic district shops and river walk and no more...

My husband and I stayed here for our wedding anniversary. The room was beautiful and very spacious. The couples massage was wonderful. The hosts were so pleasant, personable and helpful. They even let us pick our room when we got there! Perfect location! Plan on making it an anniversary tradition!!

We travel quite a bit but this was our very first B&B stay. I don't know if this is an average B&B or if we were just incredibly lucky to start with a great one! We could not have been more comfortable. We were met at the front door and escorted to our room (Kipling). The room was simple and...
