Southern charm and hospitality

4,8 sur juillet 16, 2018

We were looking for a way to break-up our trip to the beach, but got so much more. We arrived on a beautiful sunny afternoon and since we were early for check -in just began to walk around the grounds. We were greeted from the porch by Katherine who said our room was ready, but we were welcome to walk around if we wished and gave some pointers on what to see. After our walk we were welcomed into the house and shown to our lovely room. After getting situated we met Bruce and Katherine on the porch for some wine and light snacks. We spent more than an hour enjoying the company of our hosts. We turned in early and had a fine nights sleep and then went down to an incredible breakfast at 9 a.m. It was only the manners my Mother taught me that kept me from turning up the plate and licking it clean. It was that good. After breakfast we sat with Bruce and he gave us a history of the house and a bit of Camden as well. We left with our bellies full and a bit more history. We are so glad we chose not to just drive straight to the beach and had a wonderful time with Bruce and Katherine. Southern charm and hospitality at its finest.

It was such a pleasure to have you with us. Thank you for your kind words and for sharing them with other travelers. Now you must hurry back. As the weather cools, the porch is so inviting.

Absolutely PERFECT!

5 sur juillet 11, 2018

On a recent road trip through South Carolina, we decided that we wanted to visit the Columbia and Camden area. My wife and I usually have a little debate about where to stay. I want to stay somewhere with interesting history. She wants to stay somewhere that is fabulous and unique.... but she isn't as excited about the historical part as I am. In Camden we found the perfect B&B that made us both happy. When I saw that Civil War diarist Mary Boykin Chesnut had lived at Bloomsbury, I knew I wanted to stay here! When my wife saw the photos of the beautiful home online, she knew she wanted to stay too! Our feelings were confirmed when we read the EXTENSIVE positive reviews online. I can confidently say after staying there, all the reviews are 100% accurate! Bloomsbury Inn and the inn keepers are doing something very special here.

Thank you so much for sharing you love of history with others, along with love of "fabulous and unique". Our Bloomsbury Team is overjoyed with your comments. Now you must return soon.

Wonderful Experience

5 sur juillet 10, 2018

Kathrine and Bruce were wonderful hosts, They both made us feel right at home. Their home was gorgeous, and meticulously maintained. Breakfast was amazing. We would recommend this B&B without any hesitation. We are already looking for our next visit!

Bloomsbury is the BEST!

5 sur juin 19, 2018

This B&B is perfection! We enjoyed our stay so much that we did not want to leave. The inn keepers are so gracious and the perfect hosts. True southern hospitality at it's best! The house is absolutely amazing and the food is fantastic. We can't wait to return!

Wonderful romantic getaway

5 sur juin 05, 2018

My wife and I spent a lovely night at Bloomsbury. The Brown's were waiting to welcome us as soon as we arrived to escort us to our room. The room was beautiful with all of the charm for an antebellum mansion. For dinner, Katherine had gone above and beyond by booking us the best table at the Millpond resturant . When we returned, the bed was turned downd with rose petals on the bed. I have never stayed at an inn where the owners paid so much detail in providing a wonderful experience.

Bruce and Katherine were gracious hosts, the house/room/grounds were beautiful, the breakfast was delicious, and the history of Bloomsbury was most entertaining. The only disappointment was that we couldn't stay longer.

Réponse du propriétaire
The Bloomsbury Team loves guests, and we too wish you could have stayed longer. Bloomsbury has an amazing history which we love to share. Be it at the afternoon complimentary wine social or following the three-course breakfast, it is always interesting to talk with everyone about the 1854 manor house and the colorful history stretching 164 years. We want you to return soon....until then, safe travels.

Beautiful and gracious historic home

4,8 sur mars 16, 2018

My husband and I stayed three nights in this gorgeous historic home in Camden, SC. The owners, Mr. And Mrs. Brown, are delightful; they are full of anecdotes about the prominent local family that built the house and the town. The Browns know all of the sights in and around Camden and graciously facilitated dinner reservations for us one evening. Mrs. Brown is an AMAZING cook--I mean amazing! Everything is scratch made and delicious! We will be back!

Réponse du propriétaire
Smiling. The entire Bloomsbury Team is smiling. Thank you for such wonderful comments. Our aim is for everyone to enjoy Camden and Bloomsbury. The weather has turned and we have hosted the afternoon social on the porch the last few days. Come back when the porch is all ready to receive you. Thank you.

Top of the Class

5 sur septembre 10, 2017

We have stayed in many B&B's, but my wife, Tonia, and I agree, Bloomsbury Inn has set the standard by which we always will judge a B&B. Their attention to detail extended throughout our stay. The warmth of their hospitality made us feel like dear friends if not family. If you are looking for a B&B that will cater to all your needs and make you feel like you never want to leave, then Bloomsbury Inn is your choice!

Chambres & Prix

General Chesnut Bed Chamber

The most masculine king bed chamber of Bloomsbury, washed in deep jewel colors, is named for James Chesnut, the youngest of 13 children in a wealthy South Carolina family who owned twenty-five square miles of plantation land. His parents, James Chesnut, Sr, and Mary Cox Chesnut, built Bloomsbury in 1854 for their daughter Sally. An 1837 graduate of the College of New Jersey "Princeton", James served 12 years in the South Carolina legislature before becoming a US Senator. He resigned his Senate seat after the 1860 presidential election to return home to serve on the committee that drafted the South Carolina secession ordinance. After Bull Run, he served on the staff of President Jefferson Davis. In April 1864, James received a field duty assignment and was appointed a Brigadier General. Following the war, he resumed the practice of law and returned to his beloved wife, Mary Boykin Chesnut, and Camden, South Carolina. This 20' by 20' room features a king-sized bed, large

Mary Chesnut Bed Chamber

This elegant king bed chamber is named for Mary Boykin Chesnut, wife of James Chesnut, a woman of society in the best sense, noted for her personal warmth, great wit and acute mind. In her daily journal, 48 thin volumes, which eventually became A Diary of Dixie, she brought life to the daily tribulations and human dimensions of the Civil War. In this very house, 12 June 1865, she wrote, "And yet from my window I look out on many a gallant youth and maiden fair. The street is crowded, and it is a gay sight...They call the walk in front of Bloomsbury the boulevard". This 20' by 20' room (newly renovated) features a king-sized iron bed, a large in-room sitting area, an art deco secretariat desk, a private dressing area, all season fireplace and private en suite bath.

Sweet Williams' Bed Chamber

A Robin's egg blue bed chamber with matching Italian tile bath represents Mary Chesnut's sister's children: the "Sweet Williams". The Sweet Williams were the favored nieces and nephews, and they were frequent visitors at Bloomsbury. Mary wrote that the Sweet Williams were much like their Mother, Kate?most agreeable and of good character. This 20' by 14' room hosts a tall, queen-sized rice bed, a writing table, two comfortable wingback reading chairs, all season fireplace and private en suite bath.

Sally Chesnut Bed Chamber

The garden bed chamber! Miss Sarah "Sally" Chesnut, sister of James Chesnut, Jr., inherited Bloomsbury upon the passing of her parents. Although she lived many years in the home, she was most proud of her presence of mind and cool self-possession in the face of the enemy. Mary Chestnut recorded in her diary Sally?s experience. When one Yankee Officer came into Bloomsbury, while everyone was seated for breakfast, "Rebels have no rights," Sally said politely. "I suppose you have come to rob us. Please do so and go". The man jumped back in rage and left empty-handed. Following the war, the Chesnuts sold eggs to maintain Bloomsbury. This 20' by 14' room is truly a garden fair, featuring an iron queen-sized bed, two comfortable wing-backed reading chairs, a lawyer?s bookcase desk/writing area, all season fireplace and private en suite bath.
