Thanks Bruce and Katherine for a wonderful weekend. You are both wonderful hosts and such genuinely nice folks. The home is beautiful. After your delicious breakfast, be sure to take advantage of Bruce's discussion about the history of the house and the Chestnut family and the mini tour. HIGHLY recommend staying at Bloomsbury!

Amazing breakfast! Also we are gluten and dairy free and there were seamless adjustments and no compromises in very stylish and delicious meal( they asked in advance and totally responded). We are history enthusiasts and the innkeepers history talk and tour was a highlight. Like meeting new friends. Also enjoyed late afternoon hospitality on verandah and wanted to kidnap their... More

Bruce is a walking encyclopedia of knowledge of the revolutionary war and the civil war and how Bloomsbury survived the burning. Great discussions and Katherine can really cook homestyle food. There is a lot to see in Camden . My daughter was married there in a perfect venue. Highly recommend. You can't go wrong staying there.

Great experience from beginning to end! We went for a short getaway weekend and haven't stopped talking about it to our friends. The Innkeepers, Bruce and Katherine, are simply fabulous. The Inn was top-notch and beautifully furnished with so many interesting pieces. Every room was spotlessly clean. Bathrooms in each of the 4 bedrooms had original sinks, toilets, tubs and... More

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
