We originally booked for three nights and added another night to our stay because we were so pleased by this B&B. It was one of the best, if not best, B&B's we have stayed at. Bruce is an amazing conversationalist with a deep knowledge of the history of Camden. Katherine is an excellent cook. The Mary Chesnut room was large,... More

With over 200 five star reviews it's not easy to write a review that adds some useful information. Let me start with saying that yes, this place is THAT amazing. Everything you read here is true. But there is more. Being one of those odd people who travel by bus, I found myself stuck at the station in a little... More

Absolutely the best Bed and Breakfast we have ever been to and in fact we are repeat customers. Bruce and Katherine are tremendous hosts who are very helpful, engaging, as well as very accommodating. Truly the social hour in the afternoon is a real treat. Our only regret is that we can't visit more frquently

We were delighted with our stay in General Chestnut's Bedroom! The king sized bed was very comfortable, and the sitting area was appreciated. Our bath was original Italian tile and beautiful. As we were the only guests at the time, social hour was not only delicious but very enjoyable to share with our hosts, Katherine and Bruce. We loved the... More

My wife and I spent a night to celebrate a belated anniversary. From the time that we made the reservation to our checkout, we received outstanding service. The Brown's home was decorated for the Christmas season and we felt as if we had traveled back in time. Our room was full of character and the social hour was the highlight... More

I spent one night here while visiting my son at Camden Military Academy. I knew the property was a restored historic estate, but I had no idea how charming, elegant and relaxing this beautiful property would be. From the moment I arrived I was treated with Southern hospitality at its finest. The owners, Kathryn and Bruce, do an amazing job... More

I loved this house. The welcome could not have been friendlier and the breakfast was just delicious! The owners put in so much effort into all of the tiny details, it makes for a truly wonderful stay. Even the cat is friendly (and I am not a cat person)! Thanks to Kathryn and Bruce for a really fabulous experience!

We traveled to Camden for Christmas and wanted to stay in a B&B to get that 'home' feeling. We were so impressed with how beautiful the house was. The details and Christmas decorations made it feel like home. The hosts were top-notch! We couldn't have asked for a better experience. The food was 5 star quality with a comfort feel.... More

Have you ever wished you could experience antebellum southern life? Well, Bruce and Katherine Brown have created a bed and breakfast that is just for you. Their large and beautifully appointed home was spared the ravages of the Civil War and has been lovingly restored and decorated. The huge and luxiorious bedrooms are appointed with all of the amenities you... More

Chris and I experienced nothing but the finest of every aspect of a honeymoon at Bloomsbury Inn. Our hosts were fabulous in temperament, service, and historical knowledge! I truly enjoyed the food and fellowship that the hosts provided in a friendly, elegant atmosphere. We didn't arrive until very late due to our evening wedding, but all was ready for us... More
