We found this wonderful place simply by googling "Pet Friendly B&B in Wilmington NC" Little did we know that our visit there would be such a nutrturing experience and that the proprietors would be so very above and beyond accommodating to us in every way. This is a place of peace, beauty, and really everything one would hope a bed and breakfast to be! Loved the decorating too! Paula is a gourmet chef and both she and Steve quietly work to make all within the Camellia Cottage walls feel blessed. It was a delightful stay and we will highly recommend this B&B to anyone. The location is very near & an easy walk to many restaurants, the river, and historical points of interest . If you are a pet owner the downstairs room by the front door is perfect and Sparkie, the well mannered host pet is a dear!
- 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
