Breakfast is amazing and the bedside snacks are home-made by Paula. Great location, comfortable beds and wonderful owner make this my favorite B&B in all of Wilmington! The dog,... More

We loved our stay and Steven and Paula are very sweet. They are fun to talk to and our very down to earth! We loved our room (Jane). It was perfect for a great Anniversary night away. The house is well maintained and we loved the hammock on the front porch. Downtown Wilmington is only a short walk away. Breakfast... More

We were very happy with our stay. The B&B is approximately 4 blocks from downtown and everything is within walking distance. The owners were helpful and friendly. We loved hearing about the area and all of their awesome recommendations for things to do and see in the area.

The innkeepers - Paula & Steven were delightful. The provided dining recommendations that we heeded two separate nights, and the food was fabulous as advertised. They also provided a recommendation regarding an antiques destination, the Ivy Cottage, which was likewise excellent. The breakfasts were not the standard fare one might expect but very creative and tasty! All in all, we... More

Recently my wife and I decided to be spontaneous and make a midweek kid-free getaway. We decided to check the Internet for bed and breakfasts in Wilmington and found a vacancy at the Camellia Cottage Bed and Breakfast. Obviously it was divine guidance because we couldn't have found a better place to make our getaway. The hosts, Paula and Steve... More

They highlight what's original, entertaining, and wonderful to do and see in Wilmington and the surrounding area. No pressure to do anything but eat, relax, and enjoy your stay at Camellia Cottage. Steven and Paula make sure of that! Camellia Cottage... More

We Just returned from our stay and I couldn't wait to write about our experience here . This was our second stay for many reasons. First and foremost would have to be the congeniality of host and hostess (as well as chef extraordinaire) Steve and Paula (also "Sparky the official Dog in Residence). They're consummately accommodating and helpful in providing... More

My wife and I stayed the weekend at the Camellia Cottage with two other couples for a kid-free getaway. We all had a great time. Steve, Paula and Sparky are great hosts and made us all feel at home. The location is within walking distance to everything downtown, where there are plenty of things to do and places to eat,... 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
