“Home away from Home!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 18, 2013

After babysitting our 2 year old twin grandchildren in Austin we did a short overnight Monday to Fredricksburg and stayed at the Magnolia House for a short rest before flying back to N.C. Claude and Lisa have thought of every detail in this perfect B & B...from lint brush for my black slacks to a bowl of different power reading glasses on coffee table for guests to use while reading morning newspaper. The sheets on the extremely comfortable bed were the incredibly soft. I need to email Lisa and ask the sheet brand. Our breakfast was amazing! (I did a thorough research before choosing this B & B and so surprised to find that most B & B's in Fredricksburg do NOT offer breakfast!) It was two courses. Simply delicious is all I can say. One of the best we have ever stayed in !!!!

We are happy we were able to provide you with a restful break after taking care of the 2 year old twin grandbabies, so much fun but they can wear you out. We are glad you enjoyed our home and hope your are able to visit us again on a future visit to Texas. Enjoy your holidays, we know you have some more traveling ahead. Merry Christmas.

My family and I had a great experience at Magnolia House. This was our first time at a bed and breakfast, and we loved it. Everyone, my parents, my sisters and my husband commented several times throughout the weekend and during our drive back home how impressed they were with Claude and Lisa, their hospitality and their attention to detail. We hope to go back. the house is very cozy. Unfortunately on the weeks leading up to our trip we had some last minute changes and ended up leaving earlier that we were hoping to stay. The inn keepers were flexible in helping us navigating some of those last minute changes. Breakfast was delicious! I could go on and on about our nice stay... the only small thing that my husband and I missed was a bathroom mat or rug in the restroom. We highly recommend this wonderful B&B.

We are so glad we were able to make your first B&B experience a pleasurable one. It was fun having you and your family stay with us. We are sorry you did not find the bath mat that was located in your bathroom. We have slip mats for inside the tubs and bath mats for when you step out of the tub in each guest bathroom. We look forward to seeing you again on your next visit to Fredericksburg. Happy Holidays!

Magnolia House B&B is a fabulous bed & breakfast! We were there during the X-mas holidays and it was beautifully decorated. Claude and Lisa are wonderful hosts and run a great B&B. Thanks to the wonderful experience we don't even want to try other B&B's in the area. They set the bar that high. Great food, great house and great people add up to wonderful experience. We highly recommend it and will definitely will return.

Awesome B&B!! We enjoy staying at the Magnolia House. The breakfast is awesome! The charm and character of the rooms reminds me of my grandmothers plantation house. Claude and Lisa treat everyone like a friend and family! Great place to go away and relax!!

Magnolia house is a wonderful place to stay, it feels like visiting family, so comfortable and homey. They thought of everything. Our breakfast was delicious and the company of others staying was great! It is off the Main Street, so very quiet neighborhood. We took a walk after dinner and it was very safe. We will recommend and stay again.

Room Tip: We liked upstairs with king bed.

From the moment I spoke to Claude on the phone about reserving a room I felt welcomed and like a friend. Claude and Lisa go above and beyond to make all their guests feel this way, I can tell from talking to the other guests that were there the same weekend we were. When my mom, sister, and I arrived for our Thanksgiving girls weekend, Claude greeted us outside and gave us a tour along with the history of the amazingly beautiful and historic Magnolia House. Having never been to a Bed and Breakfast, we didn't know what to expect but MY were we impressed! Books, fireplace, wine, food, movies, relaxing backyard with a pond, games, super clean rooms, comfortable bed, I could go on and on! We were in a downstairs room and seemed like we were the only ones in the house because we couldn't hear anyone else! :) (For those who worry about that). In the morning, we awoke to the smell of coffee and delicious coffee cake. This was heaven to wake up to after a long evening of wine tasting! :) The sit down breakfast was not only visually impressive but was very tasty!

I really loved the Christmas decor that was in our room! It just tied the whole holiday weekend together! My mom, sister and I are all looking forward to staying here again!!

Room Tip: We stayed in the suite and it had a private bath and a living area with 2 couches and a fireplace...

What a nice little B&B. We met some of the nicest folks during our two day stay. Claude made some excellent breakfasts. Claude & Lisa made us feel like welcomed guests and like part of a family. We had interesting conversations at breakfast. Cookies, pies, wine, fruit and other goodies available in the evening. Nice "just like home" setting. The sitting areas were great for drinking coffee or wine while reading the paper. We will be booking another trip in the spring to take advantage of some of the cycling the area offers. We were totally satisfied customers and will be back again!
