If you are looking for fun weekend away, head for Camelia Cottage in
Bustling Wilmington. This is a delightful B&B set in a camellia garden
In the Historic section of Wilmington. We parked our car on Friday,no
Fees, and didn't use it until we left on Monday! Great location, above
The hustle and bustle of downtown, quiet street filled with interesting
Historic homes. Paula and Steven are wonderful hosts. They send out
Info on What's Happening in Wilmington,allow sweet pets, prepare
Tasty and creative breakfasts, and even provide early morning coffee
Outside your door. Our room was decorated nicely and it was quiet!
Value for money at Camelia Cottage.
- 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
