The Verandas is a Victorian Italianate Mansion located in Wilmington's Historic District at 202 Nun Street, only two blocks from downtown Wilmington's scenic Cape Fear Riverfront. Originally built in 1853 by Benjamin Beery, the structure suffered extensive fire and water damage in 1992. Boarded up and decaying, the mansion was purchased in May 1995 by the present owners, Chuck Pennington and Dennis Madsen, who proceeded with extensive restoration for which they have received several awards.

The VerandasThe Verandas' eight elegantly appointed guestrooms are large corner rooms with individual climate control. Guests may choose from a selection of king or queen beds with hand-ironed sheets and pillowcases. The luxurious private baths feature marble floors and oversized oval tubs. The inn is decorated with American, French and English antiques and original artwork. Each room has an inviting and distinctive look and feel. Cable TV, VCRs, and telephones with computer jacks are standard, suitable for leisure and business travelers.

"As a Johansens Inspector, I look for many qualities in a property that may appeal to the independent traveler who is looking for a unique experience," states Inspector Susannah MacPherson. "I was immediately impressed with the Verandas, from the architecture to the hospitality offered by the innkeepers Chuck Pennington and Dennis Madsen. Their attention to detail is incredible; from the restoration of the building to each room, which have been impeccably decorated. The details, such as the wonderful linens on each bed to the toiletries that have been carefully chosen. With all these considerations The Verandas is the epitome of excellence that our readers seek. Wilmington certainly must be very proud to offer such a gem to its visitors."
