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

My wife and I stayed at The Camellia Cottage in September 2013 for a wedding. This bed and breakfast is in a great neighborhood, easy access to downtown Wilmington by just a short walk. The owners are very kind and the rooms are comfortable and cozy. We would definitely recommend this place for couples or a small family if looking... More

Paula,Steve and Sparky are just the best. Do not let the term "pet friendly" scare you off if you are not a pet person! This place is absolutely gorgeous and comfortable. The food is outrageously good. Steve and Paula are warm,accommodating and wonderful, and Sparky is the zen influence with his extremely calm demeanor....I am not making this up We... More

We have been fortunate to stay at the Camellia Cottage twice in the past year and it has become a favorite place for a weekend getaway. It's in a great location and you can walk to the riverfront and downtown restaurants. Paula and Steven prepare an awesome breakfast and they are also very helpful with ideas about places to go...

We found this wonderful place simply by googling "Pet Friendly B&B in Wilmington NC" Little did we know that our visit there would be such a nutrturing experience and that the proprietors would be so very above and beyond accommodating to us in every way. This is a place of peace, beauty, and really everything one would hope a bed... More

Camellia Cottage is a pure delight! My husband, small dog and I travel all over to enjoy a B&B and explore a city in the U.S.A. This is our very favorite B&B and it's mainly because of Paula and Steven...the innkeepers we all want when staying somewhere. An absolutely delicious, savory/sweet multi-course breakfast awaits you each morning and this lovely... More

I usually avoid B&B's because of some previous negative experiences, but stayed for two nights at Camellia Cottage as the result of a gift. I was surprised and delighted. Here's why: 1) Nice quiet location on a lovely street with ample parking --a short walk from downtown river area. 2) Nicely decorated house without being overdone. Large rooms (the one... More

On the recommendation of a friend, we stayed at Camellia Cottage a few weeks ago. What a charming B&B. Our hosts, Steven and Paula, were delightful and very informative about local attractions, etc. Breakfast was a three-course meal and wonderful. We highly recommend it and will definitely stay there again.

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
