The Verandas is a bed and breakfast just two blocks from the waterfront. This 8,500-square-foot Victorian Italianate mansion is perfect for business trips and tourists alike, with its renovated 151-year-old style. Each of the eight spacious guest rooms are corner rooms, with five featuring king beds and the other three featuring queen beds. All have individual air conditioning controls, free Wi-Fi, TV with extended cable, phones, top-of-the-line Serta Hotel Mattresses, elegant bedspreads, and hand-ironed cotton sheets. Bathrooms have garden-size soaking tubs, showers, marble vanity tops and floors, large mirrors, make-up mirrors, hairdryers, and toiletries from Gilchrist and Soames. There are also lounge furniture, antique lights, small desks, and oriental rugs.
Guests can relax on one of the four roomy verandas, which give this inn its name, or enjoy the garden, which has won awards. The property also has a reception area, terrace, large formal living room, and piano room for guests’ enjoyment. The day begins with breakfast served in the large dining room, including French-pressed coffee, a range of tea, local fruit, an entrée, and breakfast meat.
