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...

Lovely Victorian house in a historic neighborhood convenient to the downtown Riverfront area with its shops and restaurants. But what really made this stay special were the innkeepers, who went out of their way to be helpful and accommodating. They told fun stories and their dining recommendations were spot-on. The 3-course breakfasts were excellent. This vegetarian did not go hungry!...

We recently enjoyed a two night stay at the Camellia Cottage B&B. The Innkeepers Paula and Steve are wonderful hosts and made s feel right at home. The rooms are nicely appointed. The cozy fireplace and homemade goodies added a nice ambiance. Every morning we had fresh coffee delivered outside our door, which was then followed by a three course...

Paula and Steve were wonderful hosts, in their charming B&B. We enjoyed hearing the history and stories about the house, as well as visiting with other guests during the delicious breakfast. Jane's room was very comfortable, and had a beautiful Tulip Magnolia tree in bloom, outside the window.

Camellia Cottage is lovely historic home with large, clean bedrooms (including fireplaces!). The location was perfect as the street is quiet, yet close enough to walk to the river and all of the amenities the high street has on offer. We can't say enough about how genuine and accommodating the innkeepers are! Steve and Paula were wonderful about advice/recommendations of...

Paula and Steve were wonderful hosts- made us feel like family! Clean, nicely decorated rooms and beautiful gardens. We even enjoyed a glass of wine on the big front porch with their sweet neighbor! Woke up the next morning to a culinary feast! Thanks for this wonderful introduction to North Carolina hospitality!

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
