The area is laid back but there are some serious boating and fishing enthusiasts in the immediate area. If you just want to bike around, the SMI has bikes to ride and you can take the... More

No fridge in the room but a small common one to use in the hallway. We were provided a carafe of wine and a cheese and snack plate upon arrival which was a nice... More

Happened to come across Sweet Magnolia on road trip, where we hadn't booked anything in advance, luckily they had one room left. Staff we're very welcoming and helpful. We were given wine, beer, cheese and chocolate on arrival and breakfast was included. Room decor is still from the 1980's but everything is so comfy and very clean. Bed is great... More

Absolutely fabulous! Beautiful rooms, friendly and helpful hosts, great location - walking distance to 3 restaurants. Great relaxing getaway from the hectic city life. Nice beach within a short drive, plus kayak/canoe rental on the Wakulla River nearby. Delicious breakfast - best sausage gravy with biscuits I've ever had! We got back too late from kayaking for the Sunday jazz,... More
