Unlike smaller B&B’s, the rooms of the Camellia Rose Inn are very spacious, with large windows offering grand views of historic Gainesville. Each room is beautifully decorated with modern, conveniences like FREE wireless Internet access, yet maintain the feeling of a bygone era.

A full, three-course breakfast featuring seasonal fresh fruit, savory entrees such as cream cheese scrambled eggs and peppered bacon, stuffed croissants and Canadian bacon, biscuits and sausage gravy with cheesy garlic grits and several varieties of tea and coffee is served daily in the dining room from 8:30 – 10 AM.

The owners live on site as required by City ordinance and are available 24 hours a day to ensure your safety and to address any of your concerns or needs. The Bed and Breakfast District has been in existence since 1991.
