The Verandas
Ranked #4 of 18 Wilmington B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 24 June 2014

My husband and I had a great time at an overnight visit last month -- we only wished we could have stayed longer! We enjoyed our chats with the hosts Chuck and Dennis, who are warm and welcoming. They have proudly restored their home to its original grandeur. The breakfast was very good and our spacious room was very clean -- loved the elegant bed linens! -- and had an oversized tub. The location is superb -- just a few blocks from town and the boardwalk.

The Verandas has been painstakingly restored by proprietors Chuck and Dennis in great detail -
with comfort in mind. After more than a dozen visits we have always enjoyed the property itself,
the proximity to the continually upgraded Wilmington waterfront area and the best breakfast in
town. Along with family during Thanksgiving - our annual stay at The Verandas is always a
highlight. It's simply a super comfortable base camp for exploring this best kept secret region
of the Carolinas.

Room Tip: There's not a bad room in the house. All have easy access to the lower or upper verandahs.

Owners Chuck and Dennis exceeded our expectations in this beautifully restored bed and breakfast. No details are overlooked, including perfectly restored guest rooms, excellent breakfast, superb local restaurant suggestions, and generous hospitality. You quickly discover that running this property is a real "labor-of-love" for the owners. A real bonus- - - all is within walking distance to the Wilmington waterfront board walk!

We stayed for three nights in early April at The Verandas. This is the third B&B we have tried in Wilmington and by far this was the best experience. Breakfast was excellent. Chuck is a great host. I especially enjoyed my morning coffee in the sitting room adjacent to the dining area. Beds were very comfortable. Oversize tub and individual cooling was great. The art and antique furnishings were quite unique. The neighborhoods around the Inn are filled with great historic homes. Dining within walking distance was first class. I would definitely recommend this Inn to anyone wanting to stay in downtown, historic Wilimington

With visiting friends from Ireland, I stayed at The Verandas in early April. We cannot say enough good things about this B&B. The standards were so high; the welcome so warm; the food so delicious; the rooms so comfortable. It was an experience that rivaled the best of stays we have had at Relais et Chateaux hotels in Europe. I will be back soon with my husband; my Irish friends say The Verandas alone would bring them back to North Carolina. Thank you, Chuck!

The Verandas is 'park and go' in the historic area of Wilmington. It was a derelict and has been sensitively and lovingly restored to a wonderful and beautiful B&B. The 8 rooms all have private heat/cool controls and, of course, en suite baths. Breakfast, in the large and elegant dining room, is beyond outstanding (Chuck even prepared a special plate for me because of my egg allergy).The weekend we were there, he prepared a surprise cake for the two couples celebrating wedding anniversaries. We will not hesitate to stay here again, and have unreservedly recommended it to neighbors and friends.

This 167 year old, 4 story home has been lovingly and tastefully restored with a fine, sure hand. All the of the Southern charm, furnishings and decor reflect the past, while the sparkling, pristine bathrooms satisfy our modern needs. My husband and I took a 3 day vacation here and seriously did not want to leave. Chuck can turn out a breakfast that would make an Iron Chef weep. While delicious and beautifully presented, he keeps an eye on fresh. healthy choices. The wine,snacks, fresh baked cookies, french press coffee and that fabulous breakfast make this such a good value. Do yourself a favor and stay here.........
