“Great first experience”
Reviewed August 11, 2011

This was our first B&B and we couldn't have chosen better. Chuck greeted us at the door with a smile and gave us a quick tour of the bottom floor of the house. He reviewed the house rules and showed us to our room. Room 6 was lovely, very inviting. The ceiling fan was a great addition on this very hot weekend. Breakfast the next morning was delicious, gourmet as advertised and the company at the table very enjoyable. We will definitely return.

Room Tip: Room 6 was in the back of the house, little street noise. It also had a ceiling fan, not all rooms d...

Other B & Bs could take lessons from The Verandas. Our room was attractive, quiet and immaculate. Every evening we sat in the living room drinking a glass of wine and pretending this was our home. The story and photos of their restoration of this beautiful old home are so interesting and inspiring. Chuck prepared a delicious breakfast every morning and was so attentive and helpful without hovering. When we had to depart very early on our last morning, he even fixed a "take-out bag" with fruit and granola bars.

A great place to stay and reenergize. Dennis and Chuck provide a great space to rejuvenate. We felt like we owned the house, had our own space to relax and felt comfortable to utilize other rooms without feeling like we were invading...

Jeff can speak to the yummy chocolate chip cookies and the nightly wine was perfect after a day walking the Greenville Lake area or checking out the hermit bunker on Kure beach.

A beautiful time in Wilmington! Thanks Dennis & Chuck.

Greeted by lovely veranda, 1 of many. Our hostess subbing for the owners was very charming. We were treated with a wine (a bit sweet) happy hour, no nibbles though. Our room was a trek to the 2nd floor with luggage but was very nice. Even the bath was nice. We had 2 verandas off our room. Breakfast was good but a bit early for us @8:30 sharp around the communal DR table which I do not like. Overall an enjoyable experience.

My husband and I made the reservation on my iphone as we were driving from Charlotte to Wilmington, a last minute addition to our roadtrip. Not only did we fall in love with the beautiful, historic town but we were sure we had lucked out in getting a room at this beautiful inn. Dennis and Chuck are the perfect hosts. We were met at the door upon our arrival, given a comprehensive tour of the historic old home and then left to enjoy our stay with a sincere request from the owners to make ourselves at home. I have had the experience of staying in similar places where one gets the feeling that they are intruding in someone else's home...but not here. Dennis and Chuck were masters in their ability to host, accomodate, guide and give their guests the breathing room to feel taken care of and at home. The rooms are lovely and each different (we were invited to look into any of the vacant ones that we wished) with an experts attention to detail, the breakfast was white-tablecloth-worthy and I can't say enough good things about the owners. This is the perfect place to stay in Wilmington!

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our three-night stay in room #4 at The Verandas in the historic district of Wilmington, North Carolina. The B & B owners, Dennis and Chuck, represent the ultimate in innkeepers: finding ways to delight their guests. The rooms were spacious and very quiet, the wine was generously provided each afternoon at 5PM, the home-baked cookies were superlative, and the breakfasts were stupendous (you won't need to eat lunch!). Most distinctively, Dennis and Chuck genuinely cared about the guests. We were there during a cold snap, and Chuck warned us each morning about the potential for black ice before we started driving. And Dennis took the time to show me the most direct route back to Ohio since he had made that drive many times. If you find yourself in the Wilmington area, you can do no better than a stay at The Verandas.
