This mini-vacation was so restful. We stayed for 3 days. Our hosts were gracious, the food was magnificent, and the accommodations elegant. This location is perfect - an easy walk to the Riverfront, with restaurants and shopping.

Paula and Steve provide a great place to stay. They're around if you need them, but you have your freedom to come and go without feeling watched or you're interrupting anyone else. The food is great, as always. Paula's dishes inspire me to try new things at home.

What a wonderful B & B, located near historic downtown Wilmington! The owners were great, and the structure was wonderfully decorated, and comfortable. They are very pet friendly and welcomed myself and my dog with open arms in this nice surprise of a historic town. The breakfast was to die for, and very gourmet! Paula did a wonderful job, and...

My wife & I stayed at the Camellia House for a couple of days right after Labor Day. We were the only guests in the house. Paula & Steve were extremely helpful in helping us navigate the local shops and restaurants as they were within a short walking distance. Breakfast was excellent including Paula's "breakfast desert".

My husband and I spent our wedding night here, and we honestly didn't want to leave. Paula and Steve are gracious hosts, we were served breakfast in bed (best breakfast I've ever had!) and overall it was just absolutely beautiful. We can't wait to come back on our anniversary!

This is the only place we will stay any time we are near Wilmington. The owners are wonderful hosts; very personable and welcoming. We booked directly with them on the phone and it was simple.

We have stayed at many B&Bs including six in the last two months, and Camellia Cottage is the nicest by far. Lovely and comfortable accommodations, gourmet breakfasts, friendly and attentive hosts, and choice location for downtown 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
