This is a very popular room and books up early.
Guest Room Eight is a very calm, large room, at 400 square feet and has a 9-foot ceiling. Four large windows and a decorative fireplace set the stage for the large Antique French metal and brass bed and a beautiful mahogany armoire. Walls are painted light blue, which is subdued with the addition of a faux finish of a grey glaze. The decorative fireplace is natural pine. The valance fabric is reminiscent of peacock feathers. The blue and white ginger jars and plates are a combination of antique and new pieces. The small Eastlake chairs are upholstered in cut velvet and are arranged with an Empire settee in a taupe velvet for guests’ comfort while enjoying complimentary port. The en suite bathroom has a fun and colorful orange, green, and white wallpaper, with the marble finishes, floor, and garden size soaking tub that are Veranda’s signature appointments. The views from the windows are stunning, with eye-level sunsets in the evening. This third floor guest room is just steps from access to the cupola – the highest residential point in the city – with an intimate seating area and 360-degree view of historic Wilmington. The floor to ceiling French windows at either end of the third floor hallway lead to an external staircase. Weekend rate $289 per night / weekday rate $269 per night.
