Everything about the Camelia Cottage was just right- from the comfortable room to the delicious and beautifully presented breakfasts. The location of the inn is perfect, it is just a few blocks from the Riverwalk- it was an easy stroll to all kinds of shops, restaurants and entertainment. The hosts of the bed and breakfast- Paula and Steve, were a...

Enjoyed a wonderful last minute stay here- we rented the suite, which worked perfectly for 3 people. They were also genuinely dog friendly and we enjoyed meeting Paula and Steven's dog. Beautiful Inn and absolutely delicious breakfast- we wish we could have stayed longer!

Paula and Steven have a very comfortable, centrally located, and delicious place for you to stay. The breakfast is fantastic and Paula was very well-versed on gluten allergy options. I have stayed here while in town on business. They have a very competitively priced weekday business traveler rate and they were accommodating of my "earlier than tourist" breakfast needs. The...

My husband and I stayed at Camellia Cottage this past weekend while in town for a friend's wedding. We were a little hesitant to book a bed and breakfast because we had never stayed at one before. Well Camellia exceeded our expectations and then some! As soon as we walked up, we were greeted by Steve as he was tending...

We spent two nights at this lovely B&B run by Steve & Paula plus their lovely dog. Superb accommodation, wonderful food a smashing couple and within easy walk of Wilmington river front. Downtown Wilmington is a really nice place to visit (assuming you like Marion's etc.!)

Memorable weekend at the lovely Camilla's B&B. Steve and Paula are gracious hosts where you feel you are their personal guest for the weekend. Charming room and multi-course breakfast excellently prepared. We certainly plan to return for another visit and will recommend to our friends.

Had a fabulous time celebrating our 15 th yr anniversary. We brought our husky Kaiya she was welcomed with a doggy treat and loved them. Can't wait to come back. We will be coming again with our daughter next time.

The Camellia Cottage is amazing in so many ways. From the enchanting gardens and relaxing front porch to the charming rooms. Paula and Steve are the best hosts! We immediately felt at home including our dog; it was as if we had known them forever. And the 3 course breakfast all homemade by Paula, need I say more! We can't...

While this beautiful home is in a great location, do not go here if you have any food allergies. When making the reservation to celebrate our anniversary we made it clear that I cannot be around citrus, and repeated this when we were there. That is why we were absolutely shocked when on our second morning, broiled grapefruit was on...

We are heart-sick that this happened. As many of our guests and several of these reviews on Trip Advisor can attest, we try to make sure that all of our guests’ dietary needs are addressed in the breakfasts we serve. First, we want to make it clear that we served this guest an alternate breakfast that did not include any...

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
