My husband and I stayed in Jane's room for 2 nights. Our room was clean and very comfy. It was breakfast that makes the Camellia stand out - it was the 2 best breakfasts I've ever had a B&B (the line would be around the block if they were open to the public)! Steven and Paula were lovely hosts and...

This place is amazing. The best hosts in the planet. So wonderful. Thank you so much. Breakfast was nice, it is close to everything. We stayed in a private room that was lovely. Very kind inn keepers that took time to listen to us, but still give us space to enjoy their beautiful home. I can't wait to return.

We loved our stay at Camellia. It is so great of them to allow pets. Steven and Paula are delightful. The breakfasts were delicious and not the run of the mill hotel fare. They are very gracious hosts. The décor is beautiful with lots of antiques. We spent a great deal of time in the evenings relaxing on the front...

Stayed at the Camellia for the Wilmington Azalea Festival. Steve and Paula are lovely hosts -- charming, engaging, and big-time dog lovers. Our miniature poodle was invited to join everyone at the fabulous breakfasts. The bed was comfy and the room quiet. Cannot say too much about how wonderful the innkeepers were. Freshly brewed coffee right outside my door first...

My husband and I stay at the Camellia Cottage every year for our wedding anniversary. This tradition started six years ago and we look forward to our stay every year! We have stayed in every one of the rooms and each is gorgeous- especially those with the claw foot tub! We love the location as it is within walking distance...

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
