About this listing
Quiet bedroom accommodating one couple or a couple of siblings, friends, co-workers, whatever! Two single beds can be comfortably merged into one king. I'm a block off Rt.95 in a quiet historic neighborhood several blocks from downtown, Amtrak, bus.
Now and then, the bathroom may be shared with other guests.
There is an extremely friendly cat in the house.
Free & easy parking on weekdays is possible but takes some work.
Extended stays are certainly possible.
Bedroom is on the 3rd floor with the bathroom on the second floor and sometimes shared.
My house is in the historic Cool Spring neighborhood that's quiet, friendly and a nice 6-7 block walk into center city. Outside, enjoy parks for exercising and within a mile you'll find restaurants, coffee shops and bars.
Inside, make yourself at home with a view of our city 'skyline.' I'm convenient to banks, offices, hospitals and court houses as well as Amtrak, SEPTA and buses. Or, visit our outstanding selection of cultural and historic attractions including Winterthur, the Nemours Mansion & Garden, Hagley and the beautiful Brandywine Valley as well as Rt. 95.
If you have business meetings or are starting a new job in Wilmington, you can walk there, take public transportation within a few blocks of my house or we'll figure out another approach.
I'll give you recommendations for local unique cafes and restaurants.
There is a friendly cat in the house. I work from home so I have a lot of flexibility.

I'm a real extrovert so I love having guests in my big house. Come for a night or two if you have business in Wilmington or longer if you'd like to visit attractions like Winterthur, Longwood Gardens, Hagley, Nemours, etc. I work from home so I'm flexible.
