Camellia Cottage Bed & Breakfast
Ranked #1 of 18 Wilmington B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 20 February 2012

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.

Room Tip: All of the rooms are very nice.

Paula and Steve were wonderful hosts. They provided my wife and i with recommendations on things to do downtown. The breakfast was outstanding. The Tuscany room was very comfortable and clean. We felt more like a guest in their home than a customer in a busy hotel. Coffee was ready outside our room every morning. And the B&B was within walking distance of great restaurants, bars, shops, and parks. We will definitely be staying here again!

My husband & I and our dog stayed here just this past weekend, and we cannot wait to go back! WE all ,including our dog Leonidas just loved it. Perfect location,you can walk to the shops, pubs, riverfront..the rooms are cozy and quaint. Steve & Paula are soooo sweet and just will go above and beyond for you to accomodate you. The breakfasts are AMAZING! Paula's ice tea is so good. Would HIGHLY recommend this place especially if you have dogs. Their dogs Sparky and Pico were just too cute and friendly. We loved this place and cannot wait to go back! :)

Room Tip: We stayed in the Henry room, we loved it.

If you're looking for the perfect place to stay, this is it. It's a charming B&B with equally charming hosts, Paula and Steve. Located in downtown historic Wilmington, it's a short walk to the waterfront, shopping, dining and attractions. It's tucked away on a beautiful side street and has lovely gardens as well as a large front porch equipped with a super comfortable hammock and lots of seating for relaxation. The rooms are spacious and beautifully decorated with an elegant yet cozy feel. Breakfasts are a culinary delight and the owners have no problem catering to special diets and tastes. An additional bonus - pets are welcome. If desired, you just might be able to entice resident pup Sparky to warm your feet while dining.....we truly felt most welcome and pampered and will most definitely return as soon as possible.

This was our first visit to Wilmington and the Camilla Cottage, and will certainly not be our last. We arrived at the Camilla on Christmas eve with a wonderful welcome from the Camilla's Vice President of Hospitality - Four Legged Group, Sparky. Sparky is Steve and Paula's gentle and friendly dog, and really knows how to welcome his guests (both two and four legged). After a nice visit with Sparky, we enjoyed an equally warm welcome from Paula and Steve.

Everything at the Camilla was top notch, from the wonderful breakfast (Paula even made a special and delicious gluten free breakfast for one of us) to the nicely appointed rooms to the hospitality provided by Paula, Steve, and Sparky. The location of the Camilla was perfect, and is an easy walk to the riverfront and the downtown shops and restaurants. The Inn is located in a very nice area, and we enjoyed lovely morning walks with our dog.

A truly lovely experience, and we will be back.

My wife and I stayed the first weekend of 2012. The home was very well decorated and tasteful, preserving both the time period of the home, but many modern conviences. The owners were extremely friendly and helpful and we talked with them and other guests well after breakfast and could have longer. Both were well traveleld and had many great experiences. The food was excellant!. The rooms were spacious and we enjoyed the gas logs, esp in the morning as a cold front moved in. The owners noted that the air/heat was a bit old and they were having some issues with it and it was rather chilly in the AM, but the gas logs helped. It did not put us off at all to considering returning. We would go back and highly recommend this B&B!. Thanks for a great stay and great food, company!!!

Room Tip: We stayed in the Tuscan Room, but the others on the 2nd floor we saw very nice as well....

I happily concur with the great reviews of Camellia Cottage. My favorite things: 1) Paula, Steve, and Sparky's genuine, warm attentiveness; 2) the beautiful, understated garden; 3) the Camellia soap/shampoo. My husband, two small dogs and I stayed in the Tuscany room and I look forward to returning to stay in the Henry Room.

Room Tip: All rooms are nice, but I like the Henry room and Crane Suite best.

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
