Fabulous experience! The Inn is beautiful-from the historic building to the ponds with waterfalls. The dining area was on a deck amid lovely gardens. Innkeepers were attentive and friendly. Close enough to the UF campus that we were able to ride our bikes around campus and downtown. We stayed in the Magnolia Room which was great-private bathroom and wonderful view.... More

I have stayed in many B&B's across the east coast. The Magnolia Plantation B&B is at the top of my list. To start they are dog friendly and clearly advertise this on their website. More and more places across this great country are realizing that pets are family too, and often we must travel with them. Magnolia B&B offers cottages... More

We booked the "Azalea Room" on homecoming weekend which is very small and bathtub in bedroom with no privacy. For the $250/night rate we expected something more. Free standing AC which is loud and doesn't dehumidify room. Also "asthmatics beware" all feather pillows and comforters and "dogs and cats" allowed in outside cottages. Innkeeper felt it was our responsibility to... More

I've been staying at Magnolia Plantation Bed and Breakfast every time I've visited Gainesville since early 2013. I've stayed in both the rooms in the main house as well as the cottages and have always thoroughly enjoyed my stay. The innkeepers and their staff really care about their guests and make every effort to ensure that your stay is as... More

We visited Gainesville for a football weekend. The positives if this b & b were a small fridge with soda and beer and ice in the freezer. Good coffee, juice and served hot breakfast (although it was reheated and take it or leave it). Two picturesque small courtyard gardens. The negatives were air units so loud we couldn't sleep well.... More

Our tech start-up needed a quiet, comfortable place for company founders to brainstorm ideas for a new project. Jessica's Cottage was a perfect place to get away from the office and focus! I'll be sure to have family stay at Magnolia Plantation when they visit Gainesville. Thanks!

I went to visit my son, who is studying at the UF. I was able to stay in one of the cottages for about 9 days. It was clean and quaint. My son came to visit often and we enjoyed walking the grounds and sitting in the rocking chairs on the back porch of the main house. The price was... More

beautiful setting right in the heart of Gainesville where you can walk to restaurants and downtown...love the wine at 5 pm ...the rooms were charming and quiet ... and they bent over backwards to do a vegan, gluten-free breakfast.

Cindy and Joe are great hosts making all feel welcome. The cottages are wonderfully appointed and each one has it own charm. Having stayed in most of them I love trying a different cabin each time. Buster my dog loves his friend Abby the collie who shares her toys! Staying in the house is also quite grand! But the dogs... More

My wife and I were moving to Gainesville from Texas and chose the Magnolia Plantation for a one night stay after the long drive. Cindy was very accomodating and made sure we had the comforts of a B&B een though our stay was short. The cottages are beautiful, spacious, and comfortable, and was perfect after driving a huge moving truck... More
