The Camellia Rose Inn is a gem of a place, and we really enjoyed staying there. Tom and Pat are wonderful hosts and made us feel right at home. I knew we had chosen well when we arrived and quickly learned that everyone else staying, stay every game weekend, and have for a long time. The Inn is conveniently located... More

My family was in dire straits when, after the hurricane passed over Gainesville, there was no power for our RV at the state park we'd booked. By pure luck, we reached Pat at 8:00pm. She welcomed us in to her lovely house and we felt like we had walked in to friend's happy home! I was so impressed with our... More

I prefer to stay at Camellia Rose over any other property in Gainesville. I think it's because of the innkeepers; Patricia & Tom. They are awesome. But it could also be the delicious breakfast, or the daily fudge brownies, or it could be the daily wine and cheese party. Or it could be the refrigerator full of free cold drinks,... More

Stayed in the anticipation room of Camellia Rose, and had an amazing and restful experience. Pat and Tom are kind, accommodating, helpful, and have little extras to make the stay special. Thank you Pat and Tom for a lovely time!

Thank you to Pat and Tim for a delightful weekend at their beautiful home in Gainesville. The room was beautifully decorated and was very large and clean. Pat accommodated our vegan diet at breakfast. The house is located close to the historic downtown where some of the area's best shops and restaurants are located. The home is also situated in...

Recently, my sister and two of my girlfriends planned a bachelorette weekend for me in Gainesville. We stayed at the Camellia Rose Inn and it was wonderful. The girls know how much I love historic places, so when they decided on the area, the Camellia Rose was a perfect fit for lodging. Pat was a wonderful host who made us... More

My husband and I wanted a mid-week getaway with options of visiting museums and state parks, or just sitting around and relaxing. The Camellia Rose Inn was perfect for this. Situated just blocks from Downtown, there was easy access to restaurants and shops, about a 10 minute walk away. It was also an easy drive to the UF campus as... More

We stayed one night at "another b and b" in Gainesville at almost twice the price of Camellia Rose, before moving over. Our room, the welcome, and the service we received at Camellia Rose far exceeded the other. There were fantastic brownies always set out in the dining room, wine and cheese, a delicious breakfast, and a mini-fridge for guest... More

This is our second visit to the Camelia Rose Inn. This trip we stayed in the room called Inspiration. It was clean, spacious, bedding and linens comfortable. WIFI available and seemed to work fine. TV in room but never turned it on! Afternoon wine and cheese a nice touch. Guest fridge stocked with water and sodas. Yummy brownies available too!... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay last weekend. We were there with family and friends. All the rooms were well appointed and the breakfast each day was excellent. The owners and staff were friendly and helpful. We'll be back!
