What an enchanted cottage in the historic area with the owners who were so accommodating making you feel right at home with amazing food. The room was very clean and we had the best sleep we have ever had. This was our first time but the other couples who were there come back every time to this place due to...

We have stayed her twice and it was excellent both times. Great rooms and breakfast is better than you'd get at any restaurant. Quaint, historic neighborhood - you can't beat the location. Thanks Paula and Steve!

This was our first B&B experience and the bar was set high! Room nicely appointed (Jane's Room), breakfast was delicious and the location is within walking distance to downtown. Paula and Steve are so sweet and friendly. They also provided great recommendations for restaurants.

My daughters, husband and I had a delightful stay in this interesting historic home. Paula and Steve went out of their way to make us comfortable. She is a great cook and breakfast was a gourmand's delight. Steve is the 'head waiter' and filled us in on our various courses along with some great advice on how to spend our...

It has been several years since we stayed at Camellia Cottage. It is still the best place to stay in Wilmington! Paula and Steve always make their guests feel welcomed and pampered. The Breakfasts that Paula makes are some of the most delicious food we have had. Dessert with breakfast. What's not to like! Camellia Cottage is also very dog...

The innkeepers Steve and Paula were wonderful, very welcoming and friendly. We stayed in the Henry room, very charming, furnished with antiques. We stayed two nights to celebrate my 60th birthday. The breakfasts were fantastic, they thought of every little detail. I even had a candle in my pancakes and the guests sang happy birthday to me. We will definitely...

This place was truly wonderful. Great location close to the nightlife but in an area we felt safe in, friendly and accommodation for us and our two pups. And the hospitality left nothing to be desired! Thank you!

This B&B is a beautifully-restored old home in a lovely, quiet neighborhood, yet just a few blocks from drinks, dining and entertainment on the river walk. There's ample free parking on the street right in front, so you can leave your car there and walk to all the downtown destinations, where carriage rides and river tours are available, as well...

Wonderful place to stay. We enjoyed the warmth of the B and B, the food, and the helpfulness. WE would recommend this highly ! Hope we can stay there again! The gardens outside were outstanding. The breakfast was so good, and came in three courses.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Once home to artist Henry MacMillan, The Camellia Cottage is a high-peaked, Queen Anne shingle house featuring four guest rooms. A long veranda, painted by a local artist, provides a view of the lush garden of azaleas, magnolias, ferns and camellias. Here, great food, gracious service and a friendly atmosphere make for a relaxing guest experience. Greet each morning with coffee at your door and a sumptuous breakfast of fruit, homemade pastries and entree. Paula’s stint as a hotel pastry chef ensures a delightful dining experience. The Crane Suite features an ornate, metal bed, carved fireplace and vibrant color. Formerly the sun room, the bath and dressing area is filled with lush tropical plants. Henry’s Room, featuring a canopy bed and fireplace, reflects the stateliness found in two of Henry’s paintings hanging in the house. Jane’s Room is named after Henry’s mother and features floral designs and vintage photos complementing the four-post bed and fireplace. In the Tuscany Room, the golden glow of the walls and large windows make you think you’re in an Italian villa. Enjoy the fireplace from the whimsical iron bed or soak in the claw-foot tub with a glass of Chianti. ... more   less
