We found the Camellia House based on a quick internet search had narrowed us down to a few choices. After talking with the very friendly and welcoming proprietor, Linda, we chose Camellia House and were not disappointed! The photos don't do the lovely property justice! The garden in particular is full of nooks and cozy spots to sit, and the porch is welcoming and very hard to leave. Unlike many B&B's, Camellia House welcomes children, and ours (ages 4 and 6) were charmed by the little sun room where they slept (Linda added a second twin bed to accommodate them). I would suggest that, while the property is "kid-friendly", it is not the kind of place to bring a particularly rowdy or loud child. Like most B&B's, the furnishings are antique, the china real, and there are other guests in close proximity. We will be back!
