My husband and I wanted a nice local stay in Wilmington after the usmc birthday ball downtown so we wouldn't have to make the 40 min drive back home. This was absolutely perfect. The breakfast was amazing -- three courses! We still talk about that raspberry peach ice cream :) They were so thoughtful (Even though we didn't end up...

My husband and I first stayed at Camellia Cottage four years ago when we moved to NC and wanted to visit the coast. We've been back at least 4 times since and family members have stayed there on trips as well. Can't say enough great things about Paula and Steve - friendly, warm people that are helpful and down to...

My wife and I recently spent two nights here and loved it. The B & B is run with care and attention by Steven and Paula. It is located in an area of historic homes within easy walking distance of most of the shops and restaurants. The house is surrounded by inviting and well kept gardens. Our room was clean,...

We stayed at Camelia Cottage B&B on Nov. 3rd. The owners were very accommodating of our late arrival and suggested that we go to our dinner reservation before coming to their inn when we called to advise we would be late. The room was comfortable but the claw foot tub in the bath was a bit small for taking a...

We stayed here recently and it was amazing. The owners are such nice people. Our room was spacious and very nicely decorated with a huge claw foot bathtub in the bathroom. The towels were soft and fluffy (better than mine at home!) And the breakfast was simply wonderful. If you're looking for somewhere to stay in Wilmington I can't recommend...

Perfect! We enjoyed out stay, the host and hostess were awesome and breakfast was super. The room was comfortable and bathroom awesome, as converted sunroom, yet private. Enjoyed the lovely plants, the antiques and collectables. Added bonus was the lovely porch with rockers and wicker furniture.

Our stay at Camellia Cottage was fantastic! Steve and Paula were so friendly and helpful, always there for us and ready to give recommendations of good restaurants and places to go.

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
