My friend and I only got to stay here one nite. We had driven for 11 hours and we were very tired when we arrived. We were welcomed in and taken right into the kitchen for a glass of wine. The hosts sat and visited us and another couple that were regulars at the B&B. Such a nice relaxing end... More

Great experience for our two night stay. We were welcomed by Robbie and Jimmy into their home and their hospitality was stunning. Cheaper than some hotels, and most in the area, this was a very comfortable atmosphere to find a few days to relax and breakfast was amazing. I do have to complain about one thing though - we didn't... More

Hospitality at its best. The rooms were immaculate and beautifully appointed. The sun room was warm and inviting. The porch outside the sunroom was calling us to a relaxing time while it was raining. The breakfasts was scrumptious. All in all, this was just a fantastic place to stay. It is close to iconic landmarks and downtown. It is simply... More

Thank you for choosing Magnolia House for your overnight accommodations while visiting Franklin. Also, thank you for taking time to post a review on TripAdvisor and for the nice comments. I do apologize for the outside appearance and we have plans to repaint the deck, etc hopefully within the next few weeks. Winter was harsh this year and Spring and... More

Robbie took our last-minute reservation. A lovely and gracious hostess with just the right amount of Southern hospitality without keeping us in conversation for too long. Spacious and comfortable room, great selection of pillows, yummy breakfast between convenient hours and kept us full for our drive that day. Clean rooms, spacious and light common areas. Outdoor space looking a bit... More

Were visiting the Franklin area and came across the Magnolia House, much preferring B&Bs to hotels, we booked it for a week. It was a wonderful stay. The house looks deceptively small from outside but is large, beautifully appointed and offers several very comfortable areas to relax and visit with other guests. Robbie and Jimmy are wonderful hosts... so warm,... More

The home was very well kept and the common area was very comfortable. The service was outstanding and we loved visiting with the other guest around the breakfast table. This is definitely a... More

6 friends stayed at Magnolia House to cycle in Franklin. I was skeptical about staying at a B&B but the experience was excellent. Robbie and her husband Jimmy are excellent hosts. Robbie's breakfast is beyond excellent. Both are very knowledgable about the history of the area. A must stay in my opinion.

Magnolia House is top notch. We have stayed in numerous B&B's and love them. Magnolia is one of the best in terms of comfort, ease of use and fantastic hosts. The rooms are very comfortable, roomy, nice bath/shower, good bed, lighting, fans, etc. There are nice accouterments such as coffee/tea machine, nibbles, etc. Plenty of lounge and sunroom area with...
