The Verandas

202 Nun Street , Wilmington, NC 28401-5020 USA (Show map) Diamond Collection

Professionally Inspected & Certified Diamond Collection


Located on a quiet tree lined street one block from busy Front Street, The Verandas guests have the best of being conveniently located downtown, but in a quiet residential neighborhood. Guests can relax on one of four verandas, or on the terrace overlooking the small, but colorful garden. Sophisticated public space is elegant, and grand, but never off-putting. Rooms are professionally decorated with wonderful colors, original artwork, and a comfortable blend of english and american furniture, all for the use and pleasure of our guests. Every attempt is made to "spoil" our guests, including providing a full gourmet breakfast in the morning. We feel that a bed and breakfast experience should include a special breakfast that one doesn't get everyday. French pressed coffee, gourmet tea, fruit course, entree, and breakfast meat are served on antique china, and silver underneath a beautiful chandelier in the dining room, or outside on the terrace. The goal of The Verandas is to provide affordable luxury. The mansion is 154 years old, but was totally gutted to the studding, and has truly been renovated to provide the ultimate comfort and safety features for our guests. While the Inn is decorated in beautiful fabrics, artwork, and furniture, we are not a museum, but an Inn for guests to enjoy.

Top of the line in every way, from the stocked butler's pantry to the luxury bathrooms and beautiful antiques, this inn truly is a gem. Within walking distance to the waterfront on a beautiful street, definitely a welcomed alternative to any hotel in the area. Top-notch hospitality.

Chuck and Dennis were so friendly and attentive to our needs and also took the time to talk to us about the history of the house and socializedwith us and the other guest during social and wine time. My husband took me to a restaurant downtown for my birthday and Chuck called them ahead and had them to reserve the one seat for 2 by the window and Chuck personally had taken me a gift there that was waiting for me upon our arrival. The Verandas is truly the place to stay!

Dennis and Chuck are fabulous hosts. My husband and I frequent bed and breakfasts when we travel. and words cannot discribe how gracious, and genuienly warm they both are in sharing there home. The home itself is lovley, grand and very comfortable. Breakfast is always a surprise and very special. If you love to be with people who love to be with you it is on the top of our list of bed and breakfast inns.

Sets the standard

We arrived for a two day stay late in October 2007. All of the rooms were clean, attractively decorated, and beautiful. Chuck and Dennis were warm, welcoming, and amusing as they told us the history of the house. The gourmet breakfasts were outstanding, around a beautiful oval table that encouraged interaction with the other guests. All of the little details were done right, regardless of your style of travel. The public spaces were elegant, spacious, and festive. The rooms had full, modern appointments. Chuck and Dennis, had detailed knowledge of the community, and were on a first-name basis with the proprietors of the restaurants we chose to visit. Chuck and Dennis exceeded expectations in making our stay enjoyable and relaxing.

Undiscovered gem

Wilmington is lovely historic town, an easy getaway from the Raleigh-Durham area. Beautiful decor, sociable innkeepers, and a perfect in-town location make The Verandas a great getaway. Amazing renovation stories, too!
