USA Today winner

USA Today’s 10Best has compiled a collection of the best bed and breakfasts across the United States. They had a group of experts put forward the nominees. Then their editors narrowed it down to the final ones. From there, readers got to have their say and vote on the ultimate winners. The C. W. Worth House Bed and Breakfast in Wilmington, NC was voted as the #1 Bed and Breakfast in the country. This nationally recognized award comes on the heals of the C.W. Worth House winning Best Bed and Breakfast in the Wilmington/Cape Fear region in the 2023 WWAYTV (Wilmington’s CBS affiliate) Viewers’ Choice Awards.

We are truly honored to be included amongst all of the beautiful properties in the contest and to be ranked first is beyond our dreams. We are very proud of what we have accomplished, and grateful for the community and our guests for supporting us. In February of 2022 we purchased the C.W. Worth House, the longest running bed and breakfast in Wilmington, and completely remodeled the house with updated accommodations and modern conveniences.

After learning of the win, Kim Hufham, President/CEO of the New Hanover County Tourism Development Authority stated, “The Wilmington and Beaches CVB congratulates the C.W. Worth House B&B on its number one ranking in the 2023 USA TODAY 10Best Readers’ Choice travel award contest for Best Bed and Breakfast. This national recognition is a testament to the innkeepers’ commitment to excellence and shines a spotlight on Wilmington’s bed-and-breakfast inns.”
