“Simply lovely stay”
Reviewed 10 November 2017 for a stay in October 2017

My sister and I planned a weekend away in Wilmington. We were so fortunate to have the opportunity to stay at the French House Cottage. The Cottage was in a perfect location. Just a short scenic walk to town and riverfront. Our lodging was splendid, well appointed, spotless and emblished with thoughtful amenities. The fresh flowers were delightful. Our host, Portia could not have been more pleasant and helpful!

“Historic Wilmington at its Best!”

I’ve had the pleasure of staying at both The French House Cottage and the main house on several occasions and had a truly memorable visit every time. The location at Fourth and Dock Streets is really convenient and right in the middle of Historic Wilmington. You’ll feel like you’re a part of history of the original French family (as well as the modern day Thomas family). Hosts Portia and Janice will make you feel right at home no matter how long you’re there!

This little cottage is another diamond in the rough! It was a very peaceful and personable living space. True to its history . It was simple living. I felt so calm in this cottage that a lot of my plans were changed and spent just enjoying the quiet atmosphere. Absolutely will book again. This cottage was good for my mind and soul. I left refreshed and rejuvenated!
