I stayed here for 16 nights over the past year when I came into town for a class. Each time I returned, I felt so welcomed, sinking into the comfort and familiarity of "home". Cal and Jill are so warm and genuine, and the breakfasts were amazing. Just a few blocks from restaurants & shops in downtown Sandpoint, too. I'm... More

Great stay at Sweet Magnolia. Comfortable room, clean and lots of character. We had a wonderful breakfast as well. Cal was a great host. We appreciated the information on where to eat and what to see in town. Thanks.

We needed a place to stay for one night on our way to Seattle from Calgary & after a bit of searching on TripAdvisor we found this delightful b&b. Cal & Jill bring their wonderful southern charm to the B&B experience ~ from storytelling about the B&B's original owner to it's restoration 100 hundred years later to the amazing breakfast... More

I stayed for two nights, and I've never really stayed at B&Bs, so I didn't know what to expect. The house and gardens present great and are in fantastic shape. The decor of the house is so nice, the complete opposite of staying in a sterile hotel. It's about two blocks walk to get to downtown, so it's far enough... More

We were delighted to find this place on a recent road trip through Sandpoint, Idaho. Our room was lovely and comfortable. Cal and Jill were friendly and engaging and made our stay so pleasant. The breakfast was amazing with fresh berries and scones along with a wonderful soufflé and fried potatoes. We were within easy walking distance of local restaurants... More

We loved staying here. The breakfast was amazing. Very central to the "Most Beautiful Small Town in America" Sandpoint, Idaho. The owners are very accommodating. We were able to come a little early and stay a little late. They locked our bikes in the Carriage House so that they were safe. Overall great place to stay and yes we would... More

We stayed in the very comfortable Sweet Bay Room, first floor, for two nights. Calvin and Jill were the perfect hosts. We spent time relaxing and reading on the wrap around , covered porch and in the comfortable living room. It is an easy walk from the B&B to restaurants, shops and other downtown attractions. The breakfasts were excellent. The... More

Very clean and beautiful. The host was friendly and hospitable. The accommodations helped make our anniversary romantic and memorable. The decorations were very well done, all the way down to the antique furniture and pictures. Also, a great location. Just a short walk downtown and to anything you want to do in Sandpoint. I highly recommend this bed and breakfast.

Stayed for two nights with innkeepers Cal and Jill while visiting family in the area. Loved their fine hospitality, great breakfasts, interesting conversation and of course the old Victorian house is a sweet spot to stay. We look forward to retuning!

We only stopped for one night on our way south to Montana but it was worth it. The Sweet Magnolia Inn is a perfect location to explore Sandpoint. Everything is within easy walking distance. The Inn is a lovingly restored Victorian home full of surprises. We had evidently one of the largest rooms with a charming claw foot tub that... More
