We reserved both poolside rooms for a reunion with friends. The shared porch was a great place to relax in the evenings and was so comfortable and spacious with the outdoor furniture providing places to nap, read, eat, or just listen to the fountains in the pool and view the beautiful nighttime lights in the trees. The rooms were beautiful...

I made my first trip to the New Orleans area, and opted to stay at a Bed & Breakfast over a hotel. It was my first B&B experience, and the Cameilla House simply rocked my world. I never expected the friendly owner, and the service was exceptional. I reconnected with a high school classmate, and the time there was simply...

We spent two nights here on our getaway and had a great time. Great porch, pool, landscaping, privacy. gourmet supermarket and wine store two blocks away, several restaurants with wide price points in walking distance. Linda is a wonderful host, and the rooms are furnished perfectly. We plan on returning more than once!

I recently spent a weekend at the Camellia House with friends; we were 3 couples and rented 3 of the 4 available rooms. Both the location and the accommodations were perfect! We didn't have to drive anywhere - everything we needed was within walking/bike riding distance, but we still felt secluded and off the beaten path. Our primary purpose was...
