The Camellia Rose Inn has spacious uncluttered rooms with large windows offering grand views of historic Gainesville. Each room is beautifully decorated with period antiques and modern conveniences like FREE wireless internet access, yet maintains the feel of an era bygone. As guests of the Camellia Rose Inn you are treated like family, and we are a family who loves to eat! We offer a full, three course breakfast that can be served in our dining room or on our beautiful wrap-around porch. After a day of sightseeing, antique shopping, or cheering on our 2006 National Championship Gators to victory, you'll come home to fresh-baked goodies available throughout the day! Early evenings feature a happy hour with wine and snacks, too. Enjoy a glass of wine on our wrap-around porch and watch the sun set on a perfect day in Gainesville!

The Camellia Rose is a gorgeous bed and breakfast that offers outstanding hospitality and a delicious breakfast. We were greeted by Sara upon arrival and were shown around the home. Wine and snacks are available each evening. Pat serves a gourmet breakfast in the morning, and the coffee is set out early if you want a cup before breakfast. Our room was comfortable and spotless. We enjoyed sitting on the front porch and enjoying the view. The Inn is within walking distance of the downtown and several restaurants. I don't know what more anyone could ask for in an historic B & B!

My wife & I normally stay in nice hotels. But there aren't any great hotels in Gainesville. We have 2 sons who attend UF & we visit them a couple times per year. After trying some of the hotel options, we were disappointed. But then I was recommended to the B & B area of Gainesville. We tried one with mixed success, but then we were very lucky to find Camellia Rose. This B&B is perfect. Pat and Tom are excellent innkeepers and are very welcoming. They get to know their guests and learn their individual likes/dislikes. The breakfast is yummy. The place is beautiful and so peaceful. The location is fantastic and is walking distance to the excellent downtown restaurants (Try Dragonfly, Mark's Prime, Amelia's and Harry's). The rooms are clean and they have brownies, soft drinks, wine and cheese and all of this is complimentary!! I recommend that you try this gem. Even if you are not a "Bed & Breakfast" person because you don't like the idea of staying with strangers in someone's house (like my wife), you can do what we do. Camellia Rose has options that are private, like the room that we select..."Spat's Hideaway". Take a chance. I am sure that you will love it.

My husband and I spent our 20th anniversary here - a great choice! Pat and Tom are wonderful hosts, and very helpful with finding us a great place for dinner. They know the area well and accommodated my husband's bicycle. Definitely will return.

Pat and Tom did it again! My husband and I just finished our third stay at their B&B and it did not disappoint. We stayed in The Anticipation Room and left feeling relaxed and rejuvenated. The breakfast, afternoon Happy Hour and the brownies all hit the spot perfectly each day. We highly recommend this B&B and definitely will be back again!

This was my second stay at the Camellia Rose Inn, and as with the first stay, this was everything you would want in a B&B. The rooms are charming, comfortable, and quiet. Pat is an excellent cook, and the breakfasts are a wonderful way to start the day. Pat and Tom are warm, friendly hosts who go out of their way to make you feel welcome. I've stayed in quite a few B&Bs over the years, and the Camellia Inn remains the most enjoyable and memorable. Judith Peterson, 12/30/2011

We stayed for one night at the Camellia Rose Inn in the Anticipation Suite. We were staying in Gainesville for a Bachelorette Party, and needed somewhere relaxing to stay that was near downtown. The owner Pat was very accomodating to our schedule and made our stay very welcoming. We loved the Camellia Rose Inn and would happily stay there again!

The Camellia Rose Inn is a lovely escape from the modern world. The innkeepers take such care with everything, and it shows. The linens are magical - hand-pressed sheets in 2011! Porches and rockers. So quiet. I slept better than I have in months.
