What our Guests are Saying:

We had such a lovely time at the CW Worth house We loved our two night stay at the CW Worth House. The house is beautifully restored and attention was paid to every detail. We were warmly welcomed upon arrival and made to feel at home for the duration of our stay. The breakfasts were yummy and interesting. While we were there, to our surprise, the Azalea Parade took place and passed right in front of the house. What a treat. The house itself is in a wonderful location, convenient to the waterfront and the rest of the historic district. Our rooms were cozy and well equipped. We’ll definitely be returning! Betty W
