Originally built in 1853 by Benjamin Beery, the structure of The Verandas mansion suffered extensive fires and water damage in 1992.Boarded up and decaying, the mansion was purchased by current owner Chuck Pennington, with his late partner, in May 1995. The vision was to transform the abandoned and deteriorating historic property into a bed and breakfast inn that offered a gracious vision into the beauty of antebellum Wilmington North Carolina.After extensive demolition, including the removal of more than 80,000 pounds of plaster, 10,000 pounds of radiators, and more than 20 dump trucks of debris, the entire house was stripped down to the studs. A completely new infrastructure was then created for the house. This included new wiring, heating, air conditioning, plumbing, insulation, and walls.A sprinkler system and emergency lighting systems were added to ensure the ultimate safety of guests. After more than a year of complete renovation, the mansion was professionally decorated to provide a professional business atmosphere for the sophisticated executive as well as to provide a comfortable weekend retreat for tourists. English and American antiques as well as traditional furniture were selected to achieve this goal.The Verandas Bed and Breakfast Inn welcomes a continual influx of guest who want to experience true southern hospitality, but it is also a home. A fanatic collector of antiques, art, and period furnishings, innkeeper Chuck Pennington is constantly re-appointing the guest rooms. His home is also his passion, and he revels in sharing The Verandas with visitors from around the world.
