Pat was great in meeting my food preference and in helping me find my way back "home" when my gps failed during after dinner walk when she was officially off-duty. Also, the location is just a 10 minute walk from a variety of restaurants.

Camellia Rose Inn is absolutely beautiful. The home and grounds are perfectly kept and very comfortable. Pat was a gracious host who cooked a perfect breakfast. We completely enjoyed our stay and will go back if we are ever in the area again.

My husband and I spent last weekend in Gainesville at this lovely, historic bed and breakfast inn. I made the reservation the day before we arrived and the owner, Pat, graciously gave me a last minute special rate. We stayed in the pretty 'Inspiration' room which was quiet and comfortable with a garden view and spa shower. The breakfasts were... More

This was our third annual visit to the Camellia Rose Inn. Pat and Tom were wonderful, friendly hosts; the breakfasts were beautifully prepared and presented; and our room was quiet, very clean, with a comfortable bed. I loved sitting in the rocking chair in front of the fireplace to read my book. We definitely will return.

I enjoyed meeting other travelers at the wine and cheese hour and at breakfast. The food was superb, the bed comfortable and the house immaculate. Pat and Tom were welcoming hosts and I felt right at home. I'll definitely stay here again when I return to Gainesville.

This was my second stay at the Camellia Rose Inn, and it was as good as the first. Pat is a marvelous hostess: considerate, courteous, and helpful. I felt relaxed, safe, and at home. I very much appreciate the beautifully decorated period common rooms, the spacious and inviting porches with a burbling fountain in the front garden, my elegant yet... More

We would not stay any place else when visiting Gainesville. Pat & Tom, the inn keepers, are very friendly. They try to meet all our needs. The food is excellent. The little extra touches of wine available at night along with nuts and brownies and refrigerator with bottled water and soda is so nice. It is within walking distance to... More

We loved our stay at Camellia Rose. It was the nicest B&B we've stayed in - and we've stayed in quite a few. We chose the Lady Clare room, which was perfect for our needs. I loved the elegant bed in the room, and the sheets were divine! I've never felt so comfortable. We later learned that Pat irons all... More

We stayed at the Camellia Rose Inn in October just when the leaves were beginning to change color. The Camellia Rose is a perfect blend of the old and the new. The beautifully restored home was located in the historic area near the downtown section. The interior was filled with lovingly chosen antiques. Our room even had the original fireplace.... More

What a lovely B&B. Great location, a quick walk to downtown where there are excellent restaurants - don't miss Dragonfly! This B&B is beautifully remodeled to its original state. The owners are very friendly. Stay here if you can; I know we will for every visit to Gator Country.
