The Bloomsbury Inn is one of our favorite bed & breakfasts--perfect in every way. The home has a rich history dating back to the 1800s. The inn is beautifully maintained, the rooms are large, the bed is very comfortable, the gourmet breakfast is to die for and the innkeepers are a delight. Join the owners, Bruce and Katherine, at their...

My two friends and I, all New Yorkers, did not know what to expect for our first trip "down south". We were in for a treat! The Bloomsbury Inn is incredibly beautiful, and was such a comfortable stay. The rooms were large, and had a desk, sitting area, and a tv. The rooms were cleaned daily, and we always had...

My wife and I stayed in Bloomsbury Inn for a weekend get-away in early November 2016. Katherine and Bruce Brown are gracious hosts and purveyors of true Southern Charm. Bruce is a gold mine of wonderful information on the history of the home and its place in Mary Chestnut's life, as well as other lesser well known but prominent owners...

I spent a long weekend at the Bloomsbury Inn and had an absolutely fantastic time. Bruce and Kathy were amazing hosts and made us feel right at home. The house was adorable and well kept, the rooms were large, luxurious, very clean, and included all of the essentials. We had also had an electric fireplace, sitting area, television, large closet,...

We (3 adults) spent 2 nights in this beautiful and characterful B&B. The rooms are lovely and the beds very comfortable. The breakfast, all freshly cooked was delicious and plentiful. We particularly enjoyed Katherine's cinnamon rolls. Bruce kept us all entertained with his stories of the history of the house during the civil war and the evening social was great...

KT and Bruce are terrific hosts. The breakfasts were wonderful and I have missed their very delightful conversations at the 5:30 PM cocktail hour. My room was very clean and comfortable and had some very interesting books to read. It was big and I enjoyed sitting and read and knitting there and on the front porch.

This was our first bed and breakfast experience and it will be hard to top! Bloomsbury Inn is a gorgeous old home filled with amazing antiques and history. Our room was beautifully appointed and comfortable - with everything we could possibly imagine needing right there. Breakfasts were delightful and delicious. Evening socials on the porch were great opportunities to meet...

Well, you will just have to come back and visit other B&Bs. It was great to have you here.

Bloomsberry Inn is a wonderful facility, and the inn keepers are fantastic. This is a great location for a weekend get away. The entire house is elegant, yet comfortable. Breakfast was superb and the evening socials were delightful.

Our four night stay encompassed three rooms; the General's, Sally's and Sweet William's. One of the party stated at breakfast one morning that every detail was covered. In fact, the attention to detail is amazing. The rooms are spacious, well appointed and do provide every feature a guest might need. The evening social was a great chance to meet the...

Repeat guest, stayed three nights this time. Great Breakfast, Great Room, Great Inn Keepers... Could not ask for more from a B&B Lovely historic property, a chance to stay in an amazing pre-civil war, antebellum mansion. Do not miss the Kitchen House out back... for true historical perspective of what it took to make a meal at that time.
