We recently spent two nights in Beth's courtyard cottage. It was very comfortable and the owners could not have been more helpful. It is convenient to restaurants and other downtown activities. We will return.

Hubby and I enjoy frequenting BNB's but none moreso than the Magnolia Plantation in Gainesville, Fl. What's the difference that makes going back here an anticipated pleasure each time? Engaging inn keepers Joe and Cindy, chance meeting of short-cationers from close by, an old downtown within walking distance with an eclectic variety of restaurants to choose from adds to the...

My boyfriend (Mike G. the review below this one) and I stayed here together last weekend. We forgot to mention that we did not use our vehicles once we parked at the B&B because the location is perfect for walking to local coffee shops, a corner market, parks, and a ton of restaurants downtown. We also wanted to say that... More

This was our first time here and we loved it!!!!! We were a late arrival but there was no issue at all finding our cottage. We stayed in the Secret Garden cottage and even though it is connected to another cottage the privacy is perfect. Breakfast was delicious and very quaint! The staff was very friendly, helpful, accommodating, and understood... More

My husband had arranged a short notice stay at "Magnolia" for a night. Several of his original plans fell through and because of that Cindy had a beautiful bouquet of flowers in our room waiting for us and recommended a wonderful romantic Italian restaurant in walking distance from the inn. The house, grounds and room we stayed in were all... More

My husband and I were in Gainesville for a business seminar he attended at the University. I wanted to stay in a B&B where I could walk places, and yet be close enough to drop him off for his meetings. We had a wonderful stay in Beth's Courtyard Cottage. Perfect for the two of us, and comfortable to just hang... More

My husband, brother, and sister-in-law spent 3 nights at the Magnolia while attending a wedding nearby. We had very comfortable accommodations and delicious breakfasts. The last weekend of Feb. was chilly even for us from New England so we enjoyed the gas fireplaces and quilts. Who knew we would travel to Florida and need to sleep in front of a... More

I stayed in the Secret Garden cottage for five weeks and loved it. Joe and Cindy are wonderful hosts, and Gainesville is a great place to go if you want to escape winter! Great place anything, I think. Cottage is beautifully furnished, and I enjoyed the sound of water falling in the fountain in the garden. As a plus, I... More

My partner and I and our dog stayed at the Magnolia Plantation recently and were thrilled with the experience. We had originally selected the Cinnamon cottage. Cindy called early that day to ask if we would upgrade to the Carriage House as she had a group of four and that the Cinnamon would be perfect for this group. She explained... More

I stayed in the Carriage house, charming, Victorian furnished as is the main house. Secret gardens to read in & relax. Fireplaces in every room! Which I actually needed to use. Largest tub ever! Lovely wrap around porch wish I could have enjoyed it longer. Remodeled and all the comforts are here. Great find!
