The Carriage house was a great place to stay. The wrap around porch where you can look out over the grounds and the sleeping swing were absolutely wonderful. The bed was very comfortable as were all furnishings. The bath was interesting. Very large whirlpool tub was great, the shower inside it a little more challenging to keep from getting water... More

We loved staying here for a few nights after our December wedding. We stayed in the carriage house, separate from the main house and great for newlyweds. :) We LOVED the giant porch and jacuzzi bathtub with fireplace! We would definitely recommend Magnolia House to anyone and everyone!

We had a wonderful 5 days stay at this charming cottage at Magnolia Plantation B&B. It was like escaping to a forest retreat. The gardens and surroundings in the complex were wonderful, and so peaceful. We loved listening to the water fountain and the birds as we walked to our cottage or sat on the porch drinking coffee in the... More

Absolutely felt like I was home when I was here. Such a beautiful garden and scenery. Very tranquil. The staff was very lovely and quite friendly. I couldn't have asked for a better time! We will be returning quite often after our stay! Thanks so much to the lovely staff for making our stay one of a kind.

A slightly rustic retreat for small family Christmas gathering was great. As long as you understand and appreciate "historic" properties cannot simultaneously meet all expectations of a new resort, this sprawling old cottage is a charming stay. The gas fireplace was a nice amenity given chilly temperatures and desire for holiday ambiance. Sun room a bit larger than pictures suggest... More

What a lovely time my husband and I enjoyed at Magnolia Plantation! Fine accommodations, very comfy beds, hot water, beautiful gardens and surroundings, yummy breakfasts to linger over and nightly wine. What more can you say? Well, I can say I feel as if I have three new friends (Abbey the dog counts as a friend!) who care about my... More

We have stayed at many bed and breakfast homes over the years, but this tops them all. Everything was perfect, especially the host and hostess. It was a last minute 'need' to find a place and Joe and Cindy graciously helped us out - little did we know how 'perfect' our stay would be. Our puppy, Jake, has cancer and... More

This was our first time at a bed and breakfast and these guys have set an untouchable bar!!! Every room had a spectacular history to it and was well maintained. The innkeepers, Cindy and Joe, have an outstanding personality and run a high class facility! They accommodated every request, answered all the questions you could have ever have had, and... More

A total delight. Even better than the reviews shared on this site. Our two day getaway at the Magnolia Plantation was like being transported to another time and place. We stayed in the beautifully restored mansion, sharing all the common areas and the delightful and beautiful antiques and other collections that Joe and Cindy tirelessly maintain. We could've just stayed... More
