“Stately Wonder in SC”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

This place is absolutely stunning inside and out. Yes - it is old, but updated nicely. I only wish we could have stayed longer. Unfortunately our trip was cut short by a family emergency so we were basically late coming in and early out.

This is a beautiful old house with lovely furnishings. Unfortunately our visit was spoilt by a very dirty bath tub and being awoken at 4.00am by the radiator heating which sound as though somebody was hitting it with a hammer. This unfortunately made sleep impossible . To add insult to injury our room was cold when we eventually got up. We were told by the Innkeeper that it was an old house . If the heating system had been maintained then the noise would be far less,bleeding the radiators would have helped. We will not be going back. We have used B and Bs in the South East and love the old houses and the friendly atmosphere . We have made good friends of some of the Innkeepers that we keep going back to visit. B and B Inns are our preferred way of staying on our road trips in the USA.

This place is excellent. I have stayed at numerous B&B's and have to say that the overall experience here was probably the best. The rooms were well appointed with nice bathrooms. The bed was comfortable. Outdoor pool and grilling area would be nice in warmer weather. The breakfast was remarkable. The cost of a room in this wonderful B&B was very reasonable especially considering how nice this place is. The wine at sunset was also a nice touch. If you find yourself in need of an overnight stay in Camden this would be a fantastic choice.

What a wonderful find!! We stayed at the Camden House, and thoroughly enjoyed every moment!! Meticulous attention to every detail!! Beginning with the kindest, most welcoming owners, to the warm, cozy,and inviting mansion, wine and snacks were being served in the Parlour, and we felt immediately welcomed and at home!!

We stayed in the Sharon Suite, and loved it!! It was a very spacious but cozy room with a living area, his and hers spacious closets-- WITH HANGERS PROVIDED (kudos Sharon!) an office area with fast wi-fi, a beautiful bathroom with a fabulous HUGE bathtub I simply loved to soak in!! The bed was very comfy with plush bedding, matching his and her bathrobe were provided, which we used to drink our coffee on the balcony in the rocking chairs and enjoyed the morning sun!! The hot water was really hot and made for a great shower, then finally -- the most delicious breakfast to start our new day!!

WE WILL DEFINATELY BE BACK, WILL STAY LONGER--AND I CAN'T WAIT!! THANK YOU TO PAUL AND SHARON AND THE CAMDEN HOUSE!!

Staying at a B&B takes an incredible leap faith. Is the property too old, uncomfortable, loud or do simply not feel welcome? Not one of those concerns are the place at Camden House. Beautiful property located on 521 just north of downtown ... Safe area reflective of the old 1830-50 southern mansions. Like most B&B's a meticulous breakfast is served at 8:30 a.m. In ground pool, decks and great sitting areas inside and outside the house. Wine served at sunset. A true southern gem.

Room Tip: There are four available suites. Book early. Stayed in the Shannon room ... Four poster bed, sitti...

Camden House is the best Bed & Breakfast we have ever stayed in. My husband & I can't say enough about the exceptional service, fabulous food, decor, comfort and most importantly hospitality! Paul and Sharon are perfect hosts and we can't wait until our next stay. The house is absolutely gorgeous both inside and out. Their attention to detail for the little things really makes this B&B a real Gem! Everyone should plan a stay here as you will not be disappointed.

Room Tip: There isn't a bad room in the house. They all have great views and beautiful furniture!

On a recent November weekend, we arrived at the Camden House. The owners Paul and Sharon made us feel like we were family members just coming to stay over. The gray damp and drizzly afternoon evaporated as they served complimentary wine and cheese in one of two very large living room lounges. With a lit fire in the fireplace we and another couple just settled in. We stayed in the very large English room. Besides a king sized bed, the room with its private full bath featured a sitting area with loveseat and two comfortable chairs. All the rooms are on the top floor of this historic 1830's house. By the way just outside the bedrooms is a comfortable sitting area with all day coffee and candy treats. Breakfast is include here and was delicious. This B&B was the nicest and friendliest by far and the prices are competetive.
