We have never stayed in a B&B before and this did not disappoint! This 1905 Craftsman Style Home is immaculate! Great hospitality, delicious breakfast, and beautiful home. We definitely plan to return. Magnolia House just makes Franklin even more charming than it already was. It is only a 15 minute walk from downtown. If we get to come in spring/summer... More

When we are in Franklin, Tn, the beautiful Magnolia House is our home! Robbie and Jimmy are wonderful hosts who make you feel so welcome, comfortable, and like part of the family! Breakfasts are amazing! This is our second time to stay and we couldn't be more pleased! I wouldn't dream of staying anywhere else!

Once again the wife and I were completely satisfied with our stay at Magnolia House. Robbie and Jimmy are the perfect host and hostess. Our room was clean and very comfortable. The large common area provided a great place lounge in the evening. The morning breakfast was outstanding! This is the best B&B in Middle Tennessee. You will not be... More

Our four couples rented the entire Bed and Breakfast for our four day reunion. We each had our own bedroom with private bath and the use of the upstairs sun porch. The beds were comfortable, everything was very clean, and we all enjoyed ourselves. The breakfast part was probably the highlight due to Robbie's menu planning and Jimmy's presentation.They both...

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

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
