Circa 1854. It's difficult to believe that this graceful three-story Victorian ever featured shag carpeting and linoleum floors. Hardly a fitting ending for a home that once belonged to a Confederate ship-builder and blockade runner, who burned his shipyard rather than let Union soldiers capture it. Innkeepers Charles Pennington and Dennis Madsen transformed Verandas from an ill-decorated, fire-damaged wreck into an elegant bed & breakfast. The restoration process included two years of painstaking work. For their efforts, they have been awarded a historic preservation award from the Historic Wilmington Foundation. The romantic guest rooms are filled with American, French and English antiques. Most rooms include a fireplace, and the beds are topped with luxurious, hand-ironed linens. Bathrooms now feature oversized tubs and marble floors and vanities. Gourmet coffees and teas accompany the lavish breakfasts, which feature delectable entrees such as a croissant stuffed with smoked salmon and cream cheese and baked in an egg custard. There are many amenities for business travelers, including wireless Internet, fax service and corporate midweek rates.Publicity and Awards: Select Registry, Southern Living, HGTV Fine Living Channel, The Chester Story, People's Choice Award.Location: City/Urban.
