We recently visited the Magnolia Bed and Breakfast for a family Thanksgiving and Gator gameday reunion. We rented Miss Huey's Cottage and the Carriage House. The grounds are impeccably manicured. The rooms are perfectly appointed with everything you could possibly need. The breakfast each morning was a culinary delight with something for even the pickiest eaters. Most bed and breakfasts...

Magnolia Plantation provides a wonderful setting for any occasion. The main house is marvelous and the gardens provide a very peaceful setting for dining, relaxing or sipping a glass of wine, which they provide each and every evening. The cottages each provide a unique experience that is different than the main house, so there are many options depending on your... More

After visiting Gainesville for many years I was blown away by the charm of the Magnolia Plantation. The architectural features combined with its unique decor and attention to detail made our stay unforgettable. The cozy and relaxed atmosphere gets complemented by the gorgeous gardens in wich we enjoyed a delicious hot breakfast as well as afternoon wine and cheese reception.... More

I have been staying at this B & B whenever I can since shortly after it was first opened. Back then Joe and Cindy, the owners, were still working on the main house. I have stayed at many B&B's as I have traveled but this one is by far superior. The main house and surrounding cottages that make up this... More

We had very specific needs with one of us recuperating from a delicate surgery and we were looking into an extended stay of one month. We were lucky to have found the Magnolia Plantation, where the owners Joe and Cindy immediately offered a lovely well furnished and equipped cottage for a very good deal. It was wonderful. The Cinnamon cottage... More

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
