Gorgeous gardens, adorable room, and the best hosts anyone could ask for. They had tons of tips and they remembered my friend from his stay there a year ago. We were a quick walk to a ton of restaurants and the river walk... And a quick Uber drive to the beach. If they have a room available stay here ......

Paula and Steven are always so friendly and welcoming. We always enjoy coming and haven't even thought about trying any other B&B in Wilmington. The grounds are spectacular and they serves a top notch breakfast which is so very tasty. Why change what is perfect!

Paula, Stephen and Sparky are excellent hosts. This was our second visit and we will be back. Our boy Monty (golden retriever) also enjoyed his stay. Our room was very comfortable and the breakfasts were delicious. Could not have had a better stay!

Camellia Cottage is the epitome of what a bed-and-breakfast should be. First the setting: a historical house with museum-quality and curios throughout, a spacious,well-appointed room (the Henry Suite) with supremely comfortable bed. Second the hosts: knowledgeable, caring people (Paula and Steven) who strive to make your stay in Wilmington exactly what you want it to be. Happy to advise and...

This was my first time staying at a B&B. I went with my wife and our dog. It was our first time to Wilmington and they were very helpful in suggesting places to go that we could take DJ, our dog. The house was beautiful! The food for breakfast was amazing. Awesome place to stay when visiting Wilmington! So close...

This historic home near the Cape Fear river is really wonderful. The owners were fantastic folk and we were able to walk down to the Wilmington river walk and enjoy a great late afternoon and evening. And the breakfast in the AM was delicious.

Birthday weekend with dogs turned into a gastronomic feast in a horticultural heaven. Paula and Steve were the kindest hosts and patient with our two small giraffes aka greyhounds :) Highly recommend Camellia Cottage and Wilmington.

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
