House and furnishings very nice. Conveniently located.

  • 4 of 5

Garage can only fit small car, larger vehicle fits in the driveway. Appreciated having salt to throw on icy driveway and back kitchen steps when we arrived.

Owner's Response: That's true, garages built in 1948 were designed to fit only cars of that era. I hope, despite the sad reason for your visit, that everything else was satisfactory.

Well-furnished and maintained. Convenient safe location in a lovely residential area near downtown.

  • 5 of 5

We wanted a place close to our daughter and son-in-law so we could celebrate the holidays and the arrival of their first child. Bancroft Cottage was perfect! It was decorated for Christmas and there was plenty of room for the 3 adults who stayed.

Plenty of room in a clean, quiet, charming house for five college friends

  • 5 of 5

A great place for our group to come home to after touring nearby Winterthur, Hagley Museum, soccer game at the Chester stadium, and lots of good Wilmington bars and eateries. Hope to return for our next reunion.
