We love the Magnolia Plantation B&B! It is truly an oasis in Gainesville, with its beautiful historic house and cottages, gardens, pond, big trees, and multiple places to relax and unwind. This was our 2nd stay in the Secret Garden, and we so enjoyed relaxing in our private garden and spending quality time there with our UF student and other... More

We arrived late on a Friday. Our cottage, Miss Huey's, is right next to the main house, and is very sweet. With 2 bedrooms, a full kitchen, living room, sun room and 2 porches, we could've stayed much longer! There's even a little fountain in the back yard. The air conditioning works great, which was good for us -- even... More

This was our third visit and we have a forth planned. Joe, Cindy and Abby make you feel like family. We love sitting on the porch and just enjoying the surroundings. So nice to be able to walk to town and enjoy the restaurants. Why stay anywhere else?

I love this place! Cindy and Joe make you truly feel at home during your stay. The food was wonderful each morning and they brought our tray to the house where we were staying, no need to get out of your plush bathrobe. (that they also provide) This place is dog friendly and consider that your dog is on vacation... More

Cindy and Joe are the perfect hosts! I loved my cozy room, the Ginger, and so did my bulldog baby! Breakfast was wonderful and I will be back for sure when in the Gainesville area! Thank you again for letting my 4-legged baby stay!

Mangolia Plantation made a highly stressful situation into a mini vacation for me and my dogs. I had a extremely ill dog and the University Vet School told me Friday afternoon that if I could be there Monday morning they could possibly help Ceili. My problem I live over 6 hours away and I have two other dogs, one a... More

We have stayed here many times since 2001 and each time has been delightful. The main house is a large Victorian and it is surrounded by gardens and cottages, some of which are pet friendly and have kitchens. Despite the variety of accommodations and location within walking distance of downtown Gainesville, Magnolia remains a true B n B with a... More

Magnolia Plantation has become our 'home away from home' when we visit our college student at University of Florida in Gainesville. Not only does it have a variety of charming room options including a small cottage with 2 bedrooms, kitchen, living room and sunroom; it has a private walled garden. Mature trees, brick walkways, fountains and garden elements enhance the... More

From start to finish The Magnolia is the best B&B / Cottage that I've had the pleasure to stay at. This was a work trip, the previous week I'd stayed downtown at what appeared to be the only hotel in town, which was nice, but with my own kitchen, sun room, lounge with gas /log fire and porch to sit...
