We made a reservation months ago, so arriving at the doorstep of the Bloomsbury Inn was certainly a breath-taking experience. Innkeepers Bruce & Katherine Brown greeted us with open arms and incredible Southern hospitality. Our heads were spinning from wanting to take in all of the detail within this special circa 1849 mansion and all of the awesome furnishings. We... More

I was in need of a mini vacation to sleep, relax and just be pampered. The Bloomsbury Inn was a perfect choice for my 2 night get away. Katherine and Bruce are great hosts. I chose to have a spa day at a local salon and spent the afternoons reading and napping. I stayed in the Sweet Williams chamber and... More

My friends and I had the pleasure of staying at Bloomsbury for two nights. Katherine and Bruce are extraordinary hosts that have transformed this lovely plantation home. Bruce's knowledge of the history of the area is amazing. The rooms are big and comfy and had all the extra goodies that I love in my own home. The breakfasts that Katherine... More

We stayed in Camden only to visit this Select Registry inn en route to Charleston. Very glad that we did. This is a beautifully restored summer home of plantation royalty. It is in a lovely area of large homes about a mile from city center. The owners Katherine and Bruce really know their craft. We enjoyed socializing in the late... More

This was our second stay at this wonderful property, and Bruce and Katherine made us feel very welcome. We got there just in time for the social hour and enjoyed delicious nibbles and wine along with lively conversation. When two military pilots are in the room, look out! The perfection of this place makes it a delight; the interior and... More

My wife and I recently stayed here after I finished training at nearby Ft Jackson. The B&B was nestled in a beautiful town and surrounded by history, architecture and memorials. Bruce and Katherine were quick to make us feel at home. They paid attention to every detail, including our dining preferences. My wife mentioned that she loves chocolate, and she... More

We stayed a night at this amazing historic b & b. The house is lovely and beautifully decorated. We stayed in the Generals chambers, a large room with a historic tiled bathroom. There were lots of nice touches in the bedroom. The social hour was great fun and we were fascinated to hear some of our hosts interesting stories. We... More

Magnificent building, restored to its original grandeur by 5 star innkeepers Bruce and Katherine. Wonderful location for multitude of historic attractions to visit. Superb service with attention to detail to guest's every comfort. Gourmet breakfast the best! We will be back ever time we pass this way. Rod and Linda Wilburn from Greenville,GA.

This is the nicest place we have ever stayed! We loved Bruce's and Katherine's hospitality. It is not only a lovely place to stay but it is an experience to remember! The history of the place is so interesting. The house is so well furnished and the grounds are impeccable. We loved the social hour on the porch. Of course... More

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!
