Why Richard Arthur Fenner chose Wilmington

My wife grew up in Wilmington DE and we decided to purchase this home as a vacation/rental property. We spend a couple weeks a year at Bancroft Cottage and love having our own place to entertain family who live very close by.

What makes this house unique

The only top notch furnished rental that accommodate five or more guests within an hours drive of Wilmington.

  • 5 of 5

Outstanding accommodations, great location, very nice, quiet, local neighborhood (with dozens of large established shade trees). Located 10-15 minutes of everything in greater Worthington (museums, libraries, Riverfront, restaurants, bars/pubs, grocery stores, etc.). Easy access to I-95 to get everywhere outside of Wilmington (including Philadelphia) in a reasonable time. Great walking streets and sidewalks. House itself has attractive architecture with modern conveniences, couldn't be more comfortable. Three full baths means no waiting. Enough beds for a large group. Roomy kitchen is incredible, appliances very "user friendly". A lot of spices, condiments, baking items, coffees, teas, oils, sauces, etc. in large pantry (probably a lot left by previous tenants, including us). Very comfortable eating table located close to kitchen prep area. A LOT of comfortable places to just relax, including a very nice screened porch. No outside noise gets in (not much anyway in this neighborhood). TVs in all bedrooms and family room. Large, modern washer and dryer. The comment that "all you need to bring is your toothbrush" is an accurate description. EVERYTHING you need to live, cook, sleep, shower is there (except for some personal tolitries and groceries). Owners and local property managers are very friendly and helpful. Off-street parking in back driveway is very convenient. Literally felt like we were living in "our" home.

Great House

  • 5 of 5

We would recommend this house highly. It’s in a safe neighborhood with parking behind the house in a one-car garage or in the back driveway. It has plenty of room with a very nice kitchen. The photos are accurate, the owner is very responsive, and there are signs posted throughout the house to make things easy for renters. Staying here made our visit to Wilmington just perfect.

Home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Bancroft Cottage because we were displaced from our home due to a house fire. My husband & I have 2 young children who were having a hard time understanding why we couldn't just go "home". This lovely home has all the comforts of our home and was a great place to stay in our time of need. The children were able to settle in and feel comfortable in Bancroft Cottage. Thank you for that lovely stay!

Great location and comfortable home for the family

  • 5 of 5

Have rented the Bancroft home from Mr. & Mrs. Fenner several times. They are so easy to

work with and the home is terrific for family and jaunts to the various Brandywine Valley

attractions. I rent several homes throughout the year for business and vacation. This home

is great for both. Five strs out of five stars.

Clean, comfortable. Great place to stay.

  • 5 of 5

My family and I have stayed at I don't know how many VRBO/Homeaway rentals over the years and this one is certainly one of the best. It was very comfortable with room for all 5 of us to spread out, the kitchen is well appointed, the internet was fast, everything was sparkly clean, the owners are very responsive, and it's close to most everything (e.g. 15 minutes to Winterthur, 7 minutes to Hagley, etc). Oh, and restaurants are an easy 2 block walk away.

If I plan a trip to Wilmington again I'll be sure to stay here.
