We loved our stay at Camellia. It is so great of them to allow pets. Steven and Paula are delightful. The breakfasts were delicious and not the run of the mill hotel fare. They are very gracious hosts. The décor is beautiful with lots of antiques. We spent a great deal of time in the evenings relaxing on the front...

Stayed at the Camellia for the Wilmington Azalea Festival. Steve and Paula are lovely hosts -- charming, engaging, and big-time dog lovers. Our miniature poodle was invited to join everyone at the fabulous breakfasts. The bed was comfy and the room quiet. Cannot say too much about how wonderful the innkeepers were. Freshly brewed coffee right outside my door first...

Our third stay at Camellia Cottage and it didn't disappoint. Steve & Paula are great hosts, the food amazing, and the relaxed atmosphere make for a great get-away! It's our must stay location when visiting Wilmington!

My husband and I stay at the Camellia Cottage every year for our wedding anniversary. This tradition started six years ago and we look forward to our stay every year! We have stayed in every one of the rooms and each is gorgeous- especially those with the claw foot tub! We love the location as it is within walking distance...

We stayed for two nights in Jane's room. The room was nice and the bed was great. The hosts Stephen and Paula were excellent hosts. They helped us with where to go and what to see and were to eat. Short walk to the historic district. Paula also made a great breakfast and the fact that she was a pastry...

Could not find a nicer couple or a better location in Wilmington for a bed and breakfast. Being a dog-friendly home made all the difference. We would not have been able to enjoy the Camellia Cottage otherwise. Thank you for understanding the mentality of dog owners!

We'd never been to Wilmington, NC. And it was the last of the bed and breakfasts we'd experienced on our trip to and from Florida and New York. But this one is to be cherished. Hosts Paula and Steve are extraordinarily welcoming to humans and animals, the property deeply loved and cared for inside and out. The house is gorgeous,...

My girlfriend and I stayed here with our German Shepherd. They were more than welcoming to us. They had a treat for the dog as well as cookies for us when we arrived. They also gave us a print out of dog friendly restaurants, etc so we didn't waste any time searching around. It is a historic home in a...

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
