Once home to artist Henry MacMillan, The Camellia Cottage is a high-peaked, Queen Anne shingle house featuring four guest rooms. A long veranda, painted by a local artist, provides a view of the lush garden of azaleas, magnolias, ferns and camellias. Here, great food, gracious service and a friendly atmosphere make for a relaxing guest experience. Greet each morning with coffee at your door and a sumptuous breakfast of fruit, homemade pastries and entree. Paula’s stint as a hotel pastry chef ensures a delightful dining experience. The Crane Suite features an ornate, metal bed, carved fireplace and vibrant color. Formerly the sun room, the bath and dressing area is filled with lush tropical plants. Henry’s Room, featuring a canopy bed and fireplace, reflects the stateliness found in two of Henry’s paintings hanging in the house. Jane’s Room is named after Henry’s mother and features floral designs and vintage photos complementing the four-post bed and fireplace. In the Tuscany Room, the golden glow of the walls and large windows make you think you’re in an Italian villa. Enjoy the fireplace from the whimsical iron bed or soak in the claw-foot tub with a glass of Chianti.

Paula and Steven were very accommodating. Had great conversations with them and the other guests. We felt at home and loved the room we were staying in. All the rooms are beautiful in person once you get to see them. The food was fantastic, and it was served delicious apple

Paula and Steven are such gracious hosts--kind, welcoming, and enjoyable to speak with (and were spot-on with their restaurant recommendations). I was traveling alone and stayed for two nights in the Crane Suite. The bed was comfy; the room spacious, clean and nicely decorated.

Perfect location to walk everywhere in historic Downtown Wilmington, which is good, because you have to pay to park everywhere.. The Inn is comfortable and welcoming, Steve and Paula are great hosts, so fun to talk with and the breakfast each morning is wonderful. Would

Steve and Paula are amazing. My wife and I visited on a whim and booked the Camellita Cottage at about 11:30pm the night before we arrived. Everything was ready for us and could not have been better for us!
