We've had more than one guest tell us that Bancroft Cottage was better than their stay at the Hotel Dupont! (and a lot more reasonable may we add). In the event that we already have a guest checking out on the day you are checking in, or checking in on the day you are checking out we will need to adjust the check-in or check-out time by one hour to allow sufficient time for the Housekeeper.

The space
Upscale detached home in a safe and quiet neighborhood. Highly upgraded with $150,000 in property and furniture upgrades. Fabulous gourmet kitchen, Pottery Barn style decor, comfy screened in porch, garage and additional parking.

If you are seeking a corporate rental or vacation stay in the Wilmington, Delaware area, this charming Cape Cod home is a lovely choice. Stay a week or a month and feel comfortable with all the amenities of a fine hotel.

This home has been totally remodeled with top of the line kitchen cabinetry and granite counter tops with hardwood floors throughout. Two large Bedrooms with Queen size beds and flat screen TVs on the 2nd level share a beautifully upgraded full bath. On the main floor, an Office/Library/Guest Bedroom with a twin day bed has an adjacent beautifully upgraded full bath with shower. A cozy screened in porch is just off the spacious Living Room which has a fireplace as well as a 52' flat screen TV.

Our key-less lock system eliminates picking up keys, dropping off keys, losing keys or getting locked out! You will be given a code to access the front and back door locks during your stay.

You may e-mail or call us during stay if there is an issue or need not covered in your Instructions.

Situated on beautiful Bancroft Parkway in a desirable Wilmington neighborhood.

Situated minutes from the downtown Business District and blocks from the Delaware Art Museum and Rockford Park, this lovely Cape Cod detached, fully furnished home is ready for a Corporate Executive or vacationing family. Local area attractions include food and entertainment at the Riverfront, Winterthur Museum (a DuPont Mansion and Gardens), 12 miles from the University of Delaware, 11 miles to Wyeth Country, 30 minutes from Philadelphia Airport, minutes from Historic New Castle, home of the minor league Wilmington Blue Rocks. We are located just 4 miles (10 mins.) from A. I. DuPont Children's Hospital.

With the exception of certain Premium Dates we only accept reservations of less than 7 days when the arrival date is within 30 days, unless we have other guests immediately preceding or following the requested stay. We do this so we don't eliminate guests looking for stays of 7 days or longer. If you are still searching for accommodations as it gets closer to your arrival please check our calendar. In the meantime if we have a reservation that immediately precedes or follows your request we will contact you.

Guest access
We have a keyless entry system. We will add the last four digits of your phone number to the locks for the duration of your stay. No keys to pick up or drop off.

Other things to note
