Innkeeper Glenda Moreadith has created a peaceful haven for guests who want to explore the Cape Fear Coast. Located in Wilmington's Historic District, the Taylor House Inn is a comfortable, romantic, turn-of-the-century house built in 1905 by local merchant. John Allan Taylor.
This Neo-Classic Revival's unassuming exterior conceals an interior of surprising grandeur. The Taylor House bed and breakfast is blessed with vast ceilings, a magnificent open staircase, rich oak woodwork, parquet floors, ten fireplaces, and brilliant stained class windows.
Beds of brass, wicker, pine, and mahogany set the tone for each guest room, complemented by antique chests, armoires, and desks. Canopies, unique hand-painted furniture, and artwork complete a delightful combination of elegance, drama and comfort.
Breakfast by candlelight in the formal dining room is a splendid array of entrees, such as bread pudding topped with Glenda's raspberry syrup, cheese souffle, and fresh fruit topped with yogurt and healthy granola. Muffins, sweet potato pie and banana bread are some other favorite offerings. Gourmet coffee, tea and blended juices, sparked with lively conversation complete this appetite-pleasing breakfast. Gardenias, camellia, water lilies and magnolia blossoms floating in sparkling crystal bowls are beautiful complements to the fine china and crystal table settings.
