My wife and I recently spent a weekend at the Magnolia House Inn. Our stay was very comfortable and relaxing. The innkeepers, Tim and Jan Decker, are wonderful, gracious, conscientious hosts. They were always available if you had any questions or just wanted to talk. The Magnolia House is rich with history and conveniently located only a few blocks from... More

The 1867 Magnolia House is lovely, clean well run and most comfortable. We stayed here for the second time on March 3, 2008. The breakfast was tasty. We will most certainly return. They are within walking distance of VMI and Washington Lee as well as scads of nice shops and dining. Highly recomend a visit. The Taggart Family

The 1868 Magnolia House exceeded our expectations. An attractive, well furnished home full of period touches, the Magnolia House is truly one of a kind. The historical significance is fascinating to think about, and we thoroughly enjoyed discussing the history with our hosts. Speaking of our hosts, Tim and Jan were wonderful! Everything we needed, they provided. They had thought... More

This warm and well appointed B&B welcomed us on a diffcult journey from Tampa by way of Savannah after a family tragedy. The Magnolia Inn with its Victorian era ambiance and furnishings was just what we needed to get away from the road. We stayed in the luxurious Lexington Room and could not have been happier with the accomodations (fabulously... More

My husband and I loved our two night stay at the Magnolia House Inn. It is very well decorated, but not 'stuffy'. We stayed in the Sunshine room - bright and airy. Beautiful linens. Breakfast both mornings was excellent - great tasting and beautifully presented. The Deckers are kind, helpful and gracious hosts. We will stay there again the next... More

We were looking for a romantic getaway to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary and found it! WOW, the Magnolia House Inn was just perfect! We were able to choose from a couple of available rooms. The hostess was kind enough to let us look at each and choose our favorite. Each one was unique, immaculate and beautiful decorated. We chose... More
