“WONDERFUL HOUSE AND HOSPITALITY”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 March 2013

Located just 2 blocks from historic downtown Wilmington, a beautiful house with tasteful decorated rooms and very welcoming owners. The place where we certainly will stay again and recommend to friends.

My husband surprised me recently with 3 nights at The Verandas to celebrate our wedding anniversary. From the moment we were greeted at the door by Chuck until we said our goodbyes we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The B&B is lovely; each room well-appointed and as warm and inviting as the next. It was so quiet you would think you had the whole house to yourselves. The breakfasts were delicious, especially the stuffed croissant we had our last morning there. We were surprised with flowers in our room on our anniversary; a very thoughtful gesture and one that was much appreciated. We highly recommend this B&B and hope to visit again one day.

Spent a weekend here with friends at the recommendation of local friends who live just two blocks away. It was a great way to spend the weekend with friends and not be a complete burden on them!
The home is beautifully restored, as others have noted, and we enjoyed sitting and chatting with owner Chuck about the restoration process as well as his extensive travels which were obvious from the things they have collected. He was just as forthcoming about the things they acquired at resale stores as those purchased abroad. It is clear they know what they are looking at!
The rooms were large and fresh and cheerful. Bathrooms were very up to date and it was like waking up in a friends home and not a hotel. We loved it! Had it not been raining every single minute of the trip we would have enjoyed a drink or tea on one of the verandas.
Breakfast is served to all guests at one time in the beautiful dining room and the offerings are beautifully presented and caloric! Fresh fruit starter, French press coffee, a main egg extravaganza with a gourmet sausage. Chuck did accommodate several guests with dietary restrictions. I would have loved an option of coffee and croissant to the room one morning but that would have kept us from enjoying conversation with the other lovely guests. Talking to them was a highlight of the stay.
We will stay with Chuck again as the location is perfect and the accommodation unbeatable!

Room Tip: I don't think there is a bad room!

Wilmington NC is a delightful historic town with a very quaint seaside historic district including a number of beautiful old homes. The Verandas is one such home, beautifully restored by it's owners and a delight for B and B travelers. There are front and back verandas for travelers to enjoy plus a nice garden in the rear. Each room is unique, and the breakfasts are sumptuous! The Verandas is a short walk to the river, restaurants and shopping. The owners are very accommodating and will assist you with choices for dinner or other activities. Our only disappointment was the fact that the two verandas were not non-smoking areas and we were unable to enjoy them due to the chain smoking guests who frequented both locations while stayed there.

This elegant 1854 mansion in Wilmington's downtown historic district was lovingly restored in the 1990s by its owners, Chuck and Dennis. It lives up to its name as there are four balcony porches to relax on plus a raised patio overlooking the garden. The location is excellent, within easy walking distance of the abundant upscale and casual restaurants and shops in the small downtown of this historic port city on the Cape Fear River. However, what really inspires us to return for a stay is the comfort and elegance of the interior and the warmth and charm of the hosts. The living room, library and dining room are very inviting. The superbly creative breakfasts and proffered wine in the afternoon are a plus too. Chuck is very entertaining, informative and friendly and Dennis was kind enough to play his ancestral 19th century music box for us. Ample parking on the residential street. One warning - you do have steep staircases to climb with your luggage.

Room Tip: We stayed in room 3, which is well appointed but the queen size matress is too soft for us (we rolle...

Our trip to The Verandas was a surprise Christmas from my husband. We stayed there for three nights. The property is beautiful, the ambiance from the greeting from Chuck who is one of the owners to his awesome breakfasts and warm conversation in the kitchen made us feel at home right away.Chuck was knowledgeable and a wonderful host without being over bearing or pretentious as we have found in other B&B's that we have stayed at. We felt very very at home. Our room was clean, super comfortable, well appointed and welcoming. Leaving felt more like leaving home after a long absence than leaving a place that is in business to make money. We highly recommend the Verandas.

Room Tip: Room one was perfect for us, but we peeked in the other rooms that we unoccupied (the doors were ope...

We spent two nights here a couple of weeks back and were delighted with the place. Our room on the top (third) floor was very large, quiet and clean--although it was a bit of a shlep getting up there (especially with bags). Located in a nice neighborhood with plenty of street parking, the B&B is quite convenient to Wilmington restaurants and sights. The very congenial hosts serve a fine breakfast and have done an excellent job of decorating their establishment.
