Welcome!

Experience Genuine Southern Hospitality at our Bed and Breakfast

Welcome to C.W. Worth House, an historic Wilmington, North Carolina bed and breakfast.  Reminiscent of days gone by and a past rich in history, C.W. Worth House allows you to share past southern traditions in a rather extraordinary fashion.

The distinctive dual turrets of C.W. Worth House represent one of the most charming and historic Wilmington, NC bed and breakfasts.  Architecturally, the house is a fine example of 19th century English Queen Anne style offering seven unique guestrooms.  As you step through the gate, the spacious southern porch invites you to slow down, relax and enjoy.

Wilmington is one of the most beautiful cities on the North Carolina coast. Founded over 250 years ago as a thriving port city on the banks of the Cape Fear River, Wilmington has a rich past.  The Wilmington historic district is one of the largest districts in the National Register of Historic Places and is a must see.  Many fascinating buildings and historic sites are open to visitors, so you can easily spend a few days exploring.

During your visit you can browse the many quaint shops in the Historic District or just take a “southern-style stroll” down brick streets rich in architecture.  You may even find yourself in the middle of a commercial or scene from a TV show… Revolution filmed its first season in Wilmington.  Other shows filmed in Wilmington include Sleepy Hollow,   Dawson’s Creek, and One Tree Hill.   Some blockbuster movies filmed in and around Wilmington are Iron Man 3, Sleeping With the Enemy and Safe Haven.  The Wilmington area has been an active production hub since the early 1980′s.  When the evening is about to fall, relax in Riverfront Park and enjoy the view or the sunset over the Battleship North Carolina. Wilmington is also designated as a Coast Guard City and the home port to the USCGC Diligence.  Wilmington’s nightlife is alive and well.  Enjoy fine dining, from fresh seafood to international cuisine.  Jazz, blues, and varied entertainment complete the night scene.

The picturesque campus of UNCW, the University of North Carolina at Wilmington is located 5 miles from the inn and midway to Wrightsville Beach.  We gladly offer visitors to the campus a special discount.

A gift certificate to C.W. Worth House bed and breakfast makes a great gift for any occasion.
