Steve, Paula and their big dog Sparky are the perfect hosts! This pet friendly B &B is on a quiet street in the downtown Historic district a couple minutes stroll from shopping, dining and boat excursions on River Walk. Paula's 3 course breakfast is to die for (she happily caters for dietary restrictions) and Steve makes sure there is fresh... More

What stood out to me the most was the personal attention given by the hosts. I emailed them...unbeknownst to my gal...and requested a chilled bottle of sparkling wine to be in our room when we arrived. I wasn't expecting a favorable reply but was excited when they emailed back and were happy to oblige. They even added a chocolate treat...on... More

We were looking forward to staying here but had to cancel (admittedly at the last minute) due to the approach of Hurricane Arthur to the Wilmington area. The owner refused to waive his one-week cancellation policy even though state officials were urging no travel due to road conditions and wind. We believe this is unfair and will certainly not plan...

Our confirmation email when he made his reservation clearly stated our cancellation policy. When he called to cancel he said that he understood our policy. We tried to... More

My husband and I enjoyed recently enjoyed a getaway at Camellia Cottage -- it was our first in 7 years so we were determined to make it good! We were not disappointed. Steve and Paula are wonderful hosts and the inn is lovely. As others have said, the food was outrageously good, the company was great and the accommodations were... More

I seriously thought about writing a bad review, just so I could keep this place all to myself! Paula and Steve are what make this B&B so special. Paula took extra time to prepare a special breakfast for my mom due to her dietary needs. Steve shared clippings from a couple of his beautiful plants. Rocking on porch in the... More

I go to Bed And Breakfasts all the time and this is by far the best I have ever had the pleasure of staying at. The owners/hosts are so gracious and accommodating. They are a pet friendly B&B which is a bonus. The location is perfect and what a beautiful location it is. If you think you have had a... More

My partner and I loved staying at the Camellia Cottage Bed and Breakfast. Our hosts Paula and Steven treated us like members of the family. Paula makes an out of the world breakfast which is served in a lovely dining room and has multiple courses. Steve knows where everything is in Wilmington, and can point you in the right direction...

My husband and I had the pleasure of staying at Camellia Cottage this past weekend. We couldn't have been happpier. Paula and Steve were the perfect hosts and their dog, Sparky, is so sweet and gentle and graciously accepted our constant petting.

The Camellia Cottage Bed and Breakfast is one of the best places my wife and I have ever stayed at. It felt like we were staying with family, because Paula and Steven were so friendly and accommodating. Every morning began with an excellent breakfast in the dining room, the pancakes were amazing. The house is beautiful and the gardens are... More

My wife, our dog and I spent a weekend in Wilmington. The weather was dreary but our stay was incredible. Our hosts at the Camellia were owners Paula and Steve and they made sure we were welcome and comfortable. The B&B was pretty full over the weekend but we felt like we were completely alone when we wanted to be.... More

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
