The spacious room was perfect. The furniture was very nice, including a carved canopy bed. The bathroom had a claw foot tub with shower, plenty of hot water, and good lighting. Plenty of room to put away clothes. One tiny complaint: need more wattage in the bedside lamp for reading. The innkeeper Steven was charming and helpful. The breakfast prepared by his wife Paula was served in an elegant dining room and was delicious. The B&B location was excellent for enjoying the downtown historic district. We will definitely stay here again.
- 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
