What a wonderful experience from the owners hospitality, to the locale, breakfast and bedroom, everything was first class, we will certainly visit there again. This is an historic home that has been tastefully restored. The life experiences of the owners provides an opportunity for many interesting conversations with owners Bruce and Catherine willing to take time to share their knowledge...

This is a wonderful house on a beautiful property. Everything well maintained in walking proximity to nearly all there is in Camden. We will return for the spring blooms! Breakfast was something to look forward to and the setting couldn't have been more beautiful!

Our stay at Bloomsbury Inn was delightful. Bruce's discussion on history of the house was fascinating and Katherine's breakfast was beyond sumptuous. The conversation with other guests at Social was entertaining. We can't wait to return.

We went to Camden for the Christmas tour of homes and stayed at the lovely Bloomsbury Inn. Our hosts, Bruce and Katherine were both charming and very welcoming. The house is beautifully decorated, and not just for the holidays. There are lovely things everywhere you look, and yet it is very comfortable. Our room, Sweet Williams was very nicely appointed....

One of the most beautiful homes in the country. Bruce and Catherine are wonderful hosts; both retired colonels, very welcoming, great history stories from Bruce and excellent breakfasts cooked by Catherine. Our room was large and beautifully and comfortably furnished. Perfection. ..

We drive from Florida to Virginia for a fall vacation most years. The past two years we have split the drive up by staying at the Bloomsbury Inn. It is such a beautiful property and Bruce and Katherine make us feel so welcome. We especially enjoy the afternoon social mingling with the other guests. Breakfast the next morning is the...

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...
