Description

Circa 1893. This beautifully detailed three-story Queen Anne Victorian boasts two turrets and a wide veranda. From the outside, it gives the appearance of a small castle. The inn was renovated in 1995, and it retains many of the architectural details of the original house, including the paneled front hall. Victorian decor is found throughout the inn, including period antiques. The Rose Suite offers a king four-poster bed, sitting room and bath with a clawfoot tub and separate shower. Guests are treated to gourmet breakfasts. Freshly baked muffins and entrees such as eggs Florentine, rosemary and goat cheese strata and stuffed French toast are served. A second-story porch overlooks the garden with dogwood, ponds and pecan trees.

Historic Interest

Charles W. Worth was a wholesale grocery merchant, as well as a commission merchant in cotton and naval stores at the turn of the 20th century- both areas of commerce that were the mainstays of the Wilmington economy before and shortly after the War Between the States. He diversified the family business after Reconstruction by acquiring the Cape Fear Machine Works. His father, David Gaston Worth, was the only son of North Carolina Governor Jonathan Worth of Asheboro. Among notable Worth ancestors, the family tree includes Daniel Webster and Benjamin Franklin. Charles W. Worth purchased the property at 412 South Third Street in 1889. He had an existing home on the property demolished and began construction of the Queen Anne-style home in 1889. It was completed in 1893, and the Worth family resided in the home until 1930.

Banana-Pecan Upside Down Pancake

This wonderful dish is baked in a cast iron skillet and flipped over and served in wedges. Simply divine!


Rosemary-Goat Cheese Strata

This hearty strata is flavorful with fresh Rosemary from the garden and creamy goat cheese.


Cranberry Eggnog Muffins

These light and tasty muffins are great for Fall and Winter.


Blueberry Coffeecake with Streusel

A winner any time of year. Use fresh blueberries in season, frozen when not in season. This will make 9 very large squares or you can cut them smaller.


Artichoke Mushroom Quiche

This is an easy but elegant recipe and serves 6 nice size portions. This recipe was recently featured in the Spring 2010 Wrightsville Beach Magazine when they paired mushroom dishes with wines!

Wonderful Weekend in Wilmington

We just wanted to thank you for a wonderful weekend in Wilmington. Staying at the C. W. Worth House was our first experience at a bed and breakfast and we were a bit nervous! Looking back, we can't imagine a better place, and we feel quite spoiled after three days of delicious, homemade breakfasts and genuine hospitality. The house was beautiful, the accommodations charming, the guests kind, but you two really made our stay special. Thank you so much! We hope to see you again soon in Wilmington. Warm wishes,

Enjoyed Our Stay

Just wanted to say how much we enjoyed our stay, though brief, at your fine inn last weekend. The Louisiana Suite was great...spacious and comfortable. Also, wanted to let you know that we really appreciated your providing us with coffee and muffins for our early pre-breakfast departure. We'll definitely be back before long. Meanwhile, best of luck on your continued success.

Wonderful Hospitality

We have stayed at many B&Bs. This is by far the most spacious, beautiful room ever. We also enjoyed your wonderful breakfast and great restaurant and entertainment suggestions. Note to other guests: Aubriana's on Front Street was fabulous! It is w3ell worth the price! Best meal I ever had. Thanks for your wonderful hospitality. See you next year.

Lovely!!

My husband and I stayed at this beautiful inn on a trip to visit our son. The hosts were very friendly and helpful, upgraded us to the Rose Suite which was beautifully appointed with a large bathroom and a very comfortable bed. We had a wonderful stay and look forward to our next visit! Dale & Kathy Medina, Ohio

Lovely Evening

We were in Wilmington last weekend and decided to stay another evening. We were blessed to find CW Worth House on Saturday morning and the owners welcomed us even in the last minute. The Garden Room was beautiful, as was the whole house. The home is in the historic district and the perfect stroll to the river. While we couldn't stay for breakfast they packed us muffins and coffee to go. I've never felt more welcome. We truly loved our stay.
