The space
Walk to everything- the Riverwalk and restaurants, downtown festivals, coffee shops, art galleries, clubs, and the lively Castle Antique District.

We offer a beautiful, very private bedroom with a Queen sized bed, private ensuite bath (shower and soaking tub), decorative fireplace, *private entrance* (COVID safety), and private porch.

Newly renovated 1870 downtown home with gleaming antique heart pine floors. The house recently won a Historic Preservation Award from the City of Wilmington (May 2013). You will get the feel of a classic 1870 Wilmington historic home, and you’re not going to lack what you need. We strive to use best local/organic/sustainable accessories and products.

"Green" renovation elements include tankless hot water for unlimited hot water supply and insulated walls (interior and exterior) for comfort and quiet.

Beautiful private porch area and comfortable outdoor furniture for relaxing. The bedroom has a ceiling fan, a small pub table, and chairs, room darkening blinds, subdued lighting, luxe bed. (hairdryer and soap provided). Each room has a coffee maker, a mini-refrigerator with a separate freezer and a microwave.
Both guest rooms are on the first floor, beautifully appointed, and very private. House is quiet, relaxed, and inviting.

(Both rooms have wall-mounted flat-screen TVs with ROKU.)

We are 3 blocks from the Cape Fear River and beautiful sunsets. The Castle Street municipal boat ramp is 3 blocks away.

Where you’ll be

Wilmington, North Carolina, United States

Our neighborhood is wonderful- enjoy a walk down tree-lined streets to the center of town (5 blocks), past century old homes in the largest Historic District in North Carolina. Wilmington prides itself on "walkability" and lovely, inviting southern charm. Explore ancient cobblestone alleys as you stroll downtown for dinner and to watch the sun set over the Cape Fear River, 3 blocks away.

Hi. I'm Katherine (a native New Yorker), a dancer/choreographer who has taught and choreographed in colleges and universities my entire career (SUNY Buffalo, Buffalo State, William Peace University). I have a BA and an MAH in Dance and Physical Anthropology. I love swimming and yoga. I am a novice longboard surfer, and LOVE the beautiful North Carolina beaches that surround our vibrant little river city of Wilmington. I love working in the arts, am active in the community, and am very enamored with downtown life in Wilmington. I'm a regular volunteer at a local homeless shelter and serve on several area arts-related boards. I'm a lifetime non smoker who maintains a healthy lifestyle and good friends. I cannot live without long walks with a good dog, and have TWO NOW- my beloved 15 year old rescue, Izzi, and sweet Olibia, an accident-prone purebred Lab rescue (an abuse case). My favorite place to be is in Italy, but Wilmington is a close second. I'm a huge fan of Tom Waits, experimental theater, live jazz, and canned opera- not necessarily in that order. I love being outdoors, but I hate the cold. Occasionally, my son and his wife, both experienced hosts, 40-ish beach lovers, fill in for me- you'll love Josh and Jen Arnott!!
