I have stayed at many different hotels and B&Bs both with my family and on business, but I must say that this ranks as one of my best stays ever. We took both cottages. Gatekeepers was recently remodelled and gorgeous, and Pigeonnairre was located close to the main house next to the pool. Whilst a cooked breakfast is not provided, the fridges are fully stocked with all manner of goodies and we were also given the option to take breakfast (complementary) at a restaurant within a lovely plantation close by.
The grounds of Magnolia Vale are perfectly manicured and overlook the Mighty Mississippi. My daughters (aged 17 and 19) loved the fact that they could stay in a separate cottage, and they thoroughly enjoyed the company of the 2 dogs that live in the main house.
Barbara, who runs the accommodation proved to the hostess with the mostest. She was helpful without being intrusive, and she could not have been more helpful.
We spent 2 weeks in The Deep South of the USA on a road trip, and stayed in some great places, but Magnolia Vale was by far and away the best. Do yourself a favour and stay here...you deserve it!
