Travelers seeking old world charm, gardenia-filled gardens, and an authentic Americana atmosphere will certainly find it in Wilmington, Delaware. To truly get a feel for this iconic Mid-Atlantic city, be sure to book a suite at the historical Inn at Montchanin Village. This luxurious Wilmington bed and breakfast is tucked away in the prestigious yet peaceful Greenville neighborhood, just five miles from the city center.
Rooms & Suites
The Inn at Montchanin Village offers the perfect home base for exploring Wilmington in style — or simply taking in the classical atmosphere of the area. There are 11 historic buildings that make up the ‘village’ and contain guest rooms and suites, and there is also a spa, restaurant, and private dining room.
Each of the 28 rooms has been lovingly restored to their former glory, with luxurious touches throughout: think period furniture, marble baths, and rich wood flooring.
There are a variety of rooms and suites available, from cozy Classic Rooms to Superior Rooms, and even One- and Two-Bedroom Suites. The latter includes two separate bedrooms, two private bathrooms with marble furnishings, and beautiful antique decor to enhance the atmosphere.
The Inn at Montchanin Village
Besides the chic rooms, the Inn at Montchanin Village also has plenty of other delightful touches and must-see features.
While staying at the Inn, take a morning walk through the beautifully manicured gardens, which are reminiscent of those found in Wilmington.
Looking for a little pampering before a big event? The Spa at Montchanin Village offers dozens of exclusive treatments, such as the popular Lavender Flower massage, as well as facials, manicures, and body treatments.
Although Wilmington is known for its up-and-coming gastronomy scene, you won’t have to travel far to indulge your taste buds. Guests rave about the on-site restaurant, Krazy Kat’s, and their sumptuous farm-to-table dishes. Don’t miss the whimsical decor, which, true to the restaurant’s name, features felines in traditional Victorian portraits.
Weddings & Events
Montchanin Village has always been a premier wedding venue — during the late 1930s, then-president Franklin D. Roosevelt held a spectacular wedding for his son, who was getting married to a du Pont heiress. That tradition is still going strong to this day.
The Inn at Montchanin Village provides a variety of different settings for your special day, including an intimate garden reception, the popular tree-lined Privy Lane, or a host of different indoor venues.
