About the Inn
In the early 90s, after staying in a number of bed and breakfasts, we decided to pursue the dream of being innkeepers ourselves. After years of exploring inns, and talking to what seemed like hundreds of different innkeepers, we started looking for a suitable location for what would become the Victorian Veranda Country Inn. We loved Lawrence, Kansas, home of the University of Kansas, because it is a place which is filled with youth, lots of fun activities, and it is also a very beautiful community. Lawrence is a place where the young at heart can thrive and stay young.
We decided to build a 10 guest room bed and breakfast in a rural setting one mile outside the city limits of Lawrence, Kansas, just far enough outside the city to be in the country but close enough to enjoy all of the city conveniences. The house is Victorian in style with wrap-around porches, and because we are in the country, a big white barn was a "must have" to create a turn-of-the-century farm setting and provide space for an event center.
