“The Real Deal in SC Inns”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 11, 2012

The Bloomsbury Inn in Camden, SC is one of the most elegant inns in a very southern traditional setting. From the well manicured grounds with a marvelous tasting fig tree to the splendid room accommodations, this inn surpasses your expectations of a wonderful visit in a peaceful setting. The wrap around porch with the view of the grounds is a perfect setting for the social event provided by Bruce and Katherine Brown each day. The wine selections and tasty treats are great additions to the social, making for a relaxing but festive time. This was truly a wonderful visit for my wife and I as a weekend get-away. We look forward to visiting Bloomsbury again and the charming hospitality provided by the Browns.

Room Tip: There are only four rooms available, but you could not go wrong with any one of them. Book early, b...

We sat on the beautifully appointed front porch in awe! Incredible architecture, landscape, hospitality, as well as its location in an incredible town, led us to wonder if the Bloomsbury Inn offered monthly or even yearly room rates.

What a beautiful home. My daughter and I stayed with Katherine and Bruce just this past weekend. We were in town for a horse show, and knew that we wouldn't have the time to enjoy some of the special amenities. However, it was more than perfect. We had to leave each morning by 7:00 so we didn't have the pleasure of sitting down for breakfast. But Katherine was there both mornings to greet us as we left. She packed a fabulous breakfast to go - ham and cheese croissants one day, bacon and egg muffins the next, along with fruit, nuts, juices and even peppermints for my daughter's horse. You would never get that at some 'regular' hotel. The room was beautiful, immaculate. Chocolates on the pillows at night, waters by the bed and delicious cookies each day as well. Bloomsbury had all of the amenities of a very high end hotel, combined with the comforts of home. I only wish we had more time to really sit and enjoy, not only the home, but the company of Katherine and Bruce. Sounds like we need another trip!

I've been looking forward to my first B&B experience for years. The Bloomsbury Inn far exceeded my expectations. Katherine and Bruce were exceptional hosts. They were warm, charming, and fun to chat with. Breakfast and the 5:30 pm socials were amazing. Katherine is an amazing cook and eagerly accommodated my dietary needs.

The house was impeccably clean. The furniture and furnishings are 100% authentic. The bed is one of the most comfortable that I've ever slept in!

I plan to return to the Bloomsbury sometime in the not-too-distant future!

Thank you Katherine and Bruce for a wonderful stay! Great food and impeccably clean. Lovely neighborhood for a stroll. Be aware that Camden shuts down on Sundays so visit local spots and museums on Friday or Saturday.

This inn is meticulously clean and beautifully restored. Bruce and Katherine are fantastic hosts; friendly, helpful, gracious and fun to talk to. Over a glass of wine, Bruce provided an amazing and interesting walk through the history of the home and the region. Camden is a very pleasant town.
The breakfasts are first class outstanding. Afternoon refreshments are served on the expansive, beautiful rain porch and it's a really relaxing to wind down with these folks.
We spent an entire day walking to the shops and and had two great dinners in town.

My wife and I will be visiting Bloomsbury again on our next trip to visit our son and his family in Florida.

We highly recommend this Inn, you will be happy you visited.

We often look for quiet out of the way places when we travel and even though this was a one night visit, we found a jewel. Bruce met us upon our arrival with a warm and cheerful greeting. It was as if we were old friends coming by for a visit. The charm and grace of Bloomsbury exceeded our expectations. Katherine greeted us in the morning (due to our early departure) with a breakfast to go and with a short conversation made us again feel like we had been friends for years. It was a wonderful experience and we look forward to visiting Bloomsbury again soon.

Room Tip: They are all wonderful.
