The room was clean, comfortable and cool during a hot summer visit. Parking is off the street, is well lighted and provides easy entry to the large comfortable Sun Room, which provides a fantastic place to relax, watch TV, and... More

My daughter and I stayed here and enjoyed walking into town for the shopping and dinner. You have a nice, clean room, and wonderful sitting room with TV, magazines, and snacks to enjoy. The owner was very gracious and friendly. It was a lovely home and breakfast was good - we had biscuits, poached eggs in shredded potato cups. I... More

Our recent stay at Magnolia House was simply wonderful! Such gracious hosts, a BEAUTIFUL home and every amenity you can imagine! Our room was beyond clean and comfortabe, and because the entire second floor "belongs" to guests, we had lots of privacy.

This was a amazing experience. Robbie was an excellent hostess. Accommodations were Just like home. Bed and room were well attended. Room for relaxation and close to downtown. That is nothing compared to the over the top breakfast with an equally appealing presentation. Franklin is a beautiful town and staying at the Magnolia was the icing on the cake. No... More

We stayed a couple of nights recently during my wife's birthday trip. We enjoyed our host the Smithson's. They remind you of an aunt and uncle. The home is well designed to serve as a B &B. Four bedrooms on 2nd floor with 2 large community rooms and a wraparound deck. Spent the first afternoon visiting with other guest on... More

This is a wonderful place to stay if you want to be pampered, Mrs. Robbie and Mr. Jimmy go above and beyond to make you feel welcomed. I have stayed in many B&B's and this one was the best of all. The food was excellent.

This was easy from start to finish! Robbie, the owner contacted me about a week before our trip to answer any questions and make sure we were still coming.

Unfortunately we could stay here only one night. That was not enough time to experience the charm of this inn and of the town. The inn was large and had ample places for relaxing and visiting. The hostess was very helpful recommending places to eat in the town. The breakfast was delicious and plentiful - just what you would expect... More
