Hurricane Florence Paid a Visit

The Cat 1 storm that hit Wilmington on Sept 14, destroyed one of the home’s immense chimneys, creating a roof cave-in and causing extensive damage to the interior of the home. The front doors were blown in by the storm, which compounded the internal wind and rain destruction. We also lost a centuries old oak tree in the back yard, ripping up the rear brick stairs to the veranda off the dining room, and tearing apart the sunroom. See Chuck Pennington’s interview on WECT Wilmington.

So now, the clean up and renovation begins. We restored this gorgeous historic home once, and we will do it again.

We are not taking any reservations for the foreseeable future. Follow The Verandas on Facebook for updates.

The Verandas will be back… and guests will once again experience gracious Southern living in our historic home bed and breakfast

The Verandas Bed and Breakfast Inn is an 8,500 square foot, four-story mansion located in the heart of the historic district of Wilmington. Two blocks from the Cape Fear River, this totally restored and award-winning historic home has been a successful bed and breakfast inn for more than two decades with over 3,000 guests.

The Inn offers an entire floor of beautifully appointed public space for an immersive experience in antebellum Southern hospitality:

Natural light abounds in the upscale, yet exceedingly comfortable, professionally decorated guest rooms. The beautiful rooms are graced with opulent chandeliers, collectibles, museum-quality art, and designer fabrics. The innkeeper’s style is exceedingly one of comfort, warmth, and informality.
