Meet Your Hosts at C.W. Worth House Bed and Breakfast
Providing Southern Hospitality for over 20 years
We love to stroll down to the river front for a sunset or visit the local attractions and keep abreast of what’s new with downtown restaurants and tour operators. We support the arts and local businesses in our community. Whether it is the best ice cream shop, historic house tour or the best boat tour, fine dining or the famous horse-drawn carriage ride, we know Wilmington and we will share our favorite things to do and see in and around Wilmington.
We moved to Wilmington in 1995 and purchased the C.W. Worth House in 1999. This photo of us was taken in 2004. See that beautiful painting behind us? It was done by one of our guests – Jane Cress Edgar. In 2004, we had an artist’s reception for her and her paintings. Ten percent of the proceeds from that event went to the American Red Cross.
The American Red Cross is very dear to both of us. Doug has worked with them as a disaster volunteer for over 20 years. In addition, both of us volunteer time at many local community non-profits whenever we can. We enjoy being involved in our community and feel it is important to give back. We do this by donating room nights and meeting space and hosting guest speakers for local non-profits.
Let us introduce you to our beloved mascot, Simon. He is an apple head seal point Siamese Burmese mix, and is very sweet. He may greet you at the door when you return in the evening. Mostly, he stays in our quarters or outside, and does not go into the guest rooms.
Mark Twain said, “Find a job you enjoy doing and you will never have to work a day in your life.” He was right about that! We have been blessed with such a job: welcoming you to this gracious, historic Southern city as our special guests. We love being ambassadors to the city of Wilmington, and we are looking forward to your visit!
