Bloomsbury Inn has been selected as one of the Top 10 bed and breakfasts in the nation as part of the Best of awards, 2010-2011.

The Best of awards are based upon a qualitative and quantitative review of the nearly 50,000 independent reviews submitted to, the leading online B&B directory and reservation network worldwide.
“ surveys show that independent reviews are the most important factor when choosing a B&B. In fact, according to’s most recent survey, 96 percent of consumers consider reviews to be somewhere between important and essential when selecting a place to stay, and 12 percent will not make a reservation at a property without them. We’re delighted that inngoers concur that Bruce and Katherine Brown, Bloomsbury, are deserving of great accolades from travelers,” explained’s Sandy Soule, one of the most highly recognized authors and a spokeswoman for the B&B industry. “Clearly, Bloomsbury earned stellar reviews from inngoers for its quality accommodations, breakfasts, amenities, and wonderful hospitality and service,” commented Soule. 

“It’s a true honor and we thank our guests for the positive reviews that resulted in this award”, said Bruce Brown. “Our guests took the time to share their comments about our hospitality, accommodations, breakfasts and attention to detail, and their comments about Historic Camden. This award and reviews serve as a magnet for tourism and tourism dollars in our community.”

When asked about the continual maintenance of Bloomsbury, Katherine Brown said, “Moving into year six of restoration, two significant projects were the old kitchen house and the 1930 garage.  Both roofs were repaired in year one which secured the structures. This year, the three original garage doors were restored by replacing cracked glass with age appropriate glass, all the runners and hinges underwent rust removal, parts were fabricated and it was totally rewired. It is great to have garage doors that actually open. In the ole’ kitchen house, the walk-in fireplace has been opened and a new chimney cap, dampener insert and oven door are being built by a local craftsman. The new oven door will have Bloomsbury etched into the iron face. We think it will be great fun to experiment with 1849 cooking methods.”
