About this listing
Private, smoke-free room perfect for a weekend get-away to world-class museums and cultural attractions, business meetings or starting a new job; convenient to downtown Wilmington offices and businesses; friendly, historic neighborhood.
Welcome to downtown Wilmington, DE! My house is in the historic Cool Spring neighborhood that's quiet, friendly and a nice 6-7 block walk into town. Outside, enjoy parks for exercising and 7-8 blocks in the other direction, restaurants, coffee shops and bars.
Inside, make yourself at home in one of my extra bedrooms with a view of our city 'skyline.' I'm convenient to our outstanding selection of cultural and historic attractions including Winterthur, the Nemours Mansion & Garden, Hagley and the beautiful Brandywine Valley as well as Rt. 95 (three blocks from entrance/exit), Amtrak and buses.
If you have business meetings or are starting a new job in Wilmington, you can walk there, take public transportation within a few blocks of my house or we'll figure out another approach.
I offer recommendations for local unique cafes and restaurants. There is a friendly cat in the house. I work from home so I have a lot of flexibility.
