I can't say enough good things about our stay -- everything was first class all the way. Our room was very tastefully decorated and comfortable, and the house was impeccably maintained. Katherine and Bruce are very gracious hosts and have put their everything into Bloomsbury -- not a detail is missed. Katherine's breakfast was amazing -- fresh fruit, fluffy biscuits with homemade blueberry jam, sweet and salty bacon, eggs florentine on a croissant with fresh tomatoes, and fresh squeezed orange juice - I couldn't get enough! Great weekend get-away!

The Browns havea good thing going in Camden. Our MiataZ Club travels to B&Bs all over the Carolinas and Bloomsbury is our best "stay" experience to date...it will very hard to top. Katherine prepared a wonderful breakfast while Bruce entertained us with stories old and new.
The home is truly a treasure. The grounds are amazing.

You won't be disappointed if you choose to join Katherine & Bruce Brown in their beautiful home, Bloomsbury Inn. From the exquisitely renovated rooms to the genteel social hour each evening on the Carolina Rain Porch, the Browns attend to each and every detail. Katherine's breakfasts are so outstanding that you'll wonder how you ever managed on just toast and coffee. Bruce's passion for history, and the role his home played in our history,is a pleasure to see and listen to. Come as a guest and leave as a friend. We did!

All the azeleas were in full bloom and it was a sight to see. Our room was very large and comfortable. In the evening the owners sat with the guest and talked which was a reall treat. How Bed and Breakfast used to be. Great breakfast in the morning. Perfect stop!

Room Tip: All the rooms are large.....there are no bad ones!

Bruce and Katherine really know what they're doing. We sat on the front porch with them a couple of hours each evening. Conversation was just as enjoyable as the home and the food! I've been to many bed and breakfasts all over the southeast. Haven't taken the time to review a single one. Highly recommended!

Extraordinarily beautiful and beautifully maintained. The azeala lined drive and the imposing portico is really spectacular. The warm and personal welcome of the couple running it is beyond what you expect when staying at a b&b. My room was comfortable and beautiful fitted out for the modern traveler but in beautiful traditional taste. Breakfast was yummy..Be sure to stay..Drive a hundred miles out of your way to do so..You'll be glad you did!

The best B&B i have stayed at. Enchanting hosts, an Inn that is divine, and grounds that astound. Your breakfast is truly a delight. no detail missed. Loved sitting on the front porch sipping some and and enjoying the conversation.
