Stay at the Camellia Rose Inn


Everything is coming up roses in Gainesville! The Camellia Rose Inn is just a short stroll from the historic downtown area of Gainesville, Florida. We are less than two miles from the University of Florida main campus and Shands Hospital. We are the perfect place to stay for a Gator game, or for a relaxing weekend in North Florida, away from the high tourist spots, yet within driving distance of some great attractions.

The Camellia Rose Inn offers six spacious, comfortable rooms – each with a private bath.  Relax on our wrap-around porch and our 2nd-floor porches. For our guests in in the 6 Camellia Rose Inn bedrooms, we offer a continental breakfast and coffee each morning for you to enjoy at your leisure.

We also have 4 one bedroom apartments in the Hodge’s House and a spacious suite in a separate cottage. Each apartment has a full kitchen, bedroom and living area. The suite has a kitchenette.

Announcement: The Camellia Rose Inn has new owners and they are excited to welcome you!

The Founders and Innkeepers, Pat and Tom McCants, retired on August 4, 2021 and the The Camellia Rose Inn is under new ownership, Southern Comfort Properties. We at Southern Comfort Properties are delighted to welcome you! We will maintain the charm and beauty of the home, but making a few small changes. We will no longer have Innkeepers living on the property, however, we are on the property daily (and reachable by phone and e-mail anytime) and will provide a continental breakfast and coffee (from the amazing local bakery, Baker Baker) delivered to the dining room each morning for Inn guests.  Fruit and snacks will always be available in the dining room. Due to COVID-19 safety protocols, rooms will continue to be cleaned after departure and not during the stay. You will receive your check-in instructions for your favorite accommodations prior to your confirmed stay.

Everyone will miss having Pat and Tom around- they built a beautiful legacy and we are so happy for them as they enjoy their golden years of retirement. I, Susannah Peddie, one of the new owners, have been in the short-term rental business in Gainesville for 11 years and lives close by in the historic district with my husband and a busy teenage son. I have lived in Gainesville for 20 years and love everything about it.
