About Richard Fenner

Why Richard 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.

Great home! Perfect location!

  • 5 of 5
The property is perfectly located within the community! The park across the street was perfect for our 3 year old twins! The house was clean with a great layout too. The screen porch on the side was ideal for afternoon lounging too. I highly recommend the home for anyone looking to stay in Wilmington!

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at this house for 2 weeks while our daughter was having surgery and it was just what we needed! The house is in a beautiful neighborhood, close to parks, a library, a playground, restaurants, and shops. It was cozy and welcoming. We all loved the the screened-in porch, too.
We cant say enough about the owners! They were wonderful to work with and always did their best to make our stay the best it could be.
Thank you for such a wonderful experience!

Perfect place for our stay in Wilmington.

  • 5 of 5
The Bancroft Cottage was just as described in the advertisement. We stayed there for one week for our daughter's wedding at Winterthur. A great place to entertain out of town guests and then relax afterwards. Easy to get to downtown Wilmington , Philly and all the Brandywine Valley arts venues. Highly recommend. Easy access from I-95. I would rent here again.

Terrific place

  • 5 of 5
We were in Wilmington for a wedding with two other families (5 adults, 2 infants) and wanted a vacation rental instead of a hotel so that we could spend time together. This place exceeded our expectations - the kitchen was well stocked, the furniture and finishes were very comfortable. We especially did not expect the additional bathroom and beds in the basement, as well as the "bonus" room off the second master (which is perfect for an infant nursery). There was plenty of space for two additional cars behind the garage (off road parking). We took a walk in the neighborhood and it was very pleasant - there is a small park/garden nearby, a playground and a library.
If we are ever in town again, I would definitely stay there again. Thanks, Richard!

Home away from home!

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful stay in a charming home in Wilmington. The house is beautifully done, clean, and within walking distance to several great restaurants. There are many great things to do nearby, and, in this location, everything is in easy reach. We would definitely stay here again.

Great house. Great location.

  • 4 of 5
The house/cottage was a great place to stay. The owner said I only needed to bring a toothbrush; and he was right. Everything you need - linens, towels, soap, shampoo, laundry soap, hair dryer, cooking supplies, dishes, etc. were all there. Although we were there to visit family over the Christmas holidays, it seemed like a great location. Minutes from I 95.

The area is a quiet residential area. The house, which appears to be an older house, has all the amenities your would expect in 2013.

The only small criticism I have is the size of the bathrooms. I have an extremely large bathroom in my house and these bathrooms seemed vary small to me.

I would definitely recommend this house.

Owner's Response: Thanks Karen
Yes, the house is a 1948 Cape Cod originally built with one small bathroom upstairs and a small powder room downstairs. When we remodeled the home we used what was the closet in the downstairs bedroom to create a good sized walk-in shower in the main floor bath. I had purchased a smaller sink for the upstairs bathroom which would have made that feel a little more spacious but my "on site supervisor" thought it was too small and put in a bigger sink. The kitchen was also very small, but we took down the wall between the kitchen and the dining room, enlarged the kitchen and added the island. You may have noticed that coat closet is not very deep. We actually used part of that so we could have a side by side built-in refrigerator. I had toyed with the idea of adding a large master suite bathroom on the back end of the house, but was voted down. Anyway that's the history of the bathrooms and I'm very pleased you enjoyed your stay.
