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.

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

Magnolia Plantation B&B has been our go-to location for everything from our oldest son's first night of marriage to an annual women's conference. Cindy is amazing to work with, Joe is always ready to help and the staff is friendly and efficient. The grounds are so amazing that I sometimes visit just to spend a few minutes relaxing on the...

My wife and I have stayed at Magnolia Plantation approximately ten times. Joe and Cindy have made us feel like family on each visit. Our dog, Kona, has been welcomed with open arms and treated like a queen. Each of the cottages/rooms has its own style and all of them are spacious and tastefully decorated. The real charm is in...

As I read the reviews...and I read them all, I always try to figure out who wrote the review. With yours it was quite easy. As soon as you mentioned Kona's name. What does that say about me? I know my guest by their dogs!! Thank you for the review. It's always great to have you stay with us. More
