Everything was wonderful at the Magnolia House. My hosts were very friendly and as a solo traveler I felt both welcomed and very safe. It's convenient to downtown (I walked) and to the Civil War sites. My room was lovely and comfortable (with a door to the porch). And the breakfasts were so delicious. It was a very enjoyable two...

Room was average - larger than a hotel. Room was tastefully decorated. Bed was small (double?) and on the hard side. Seem to have an electrical issue - lights, etc flicker. Rooms on second floor accessed by steep steps inside and outside. No backyard - it is parking lot. Nice large common area but the furnishing is a bit shabby.... More

I would like to thank you for choosing Magnolia House for your recent visit to Franklin, but am disappointed that you weren't completely satisfied and appreciate you bringing these areas of concern to our attention. Franklin is a bustling town and at certain times of the day it is busy. I will check into the mattress, but not sure which... More

My best friend and I go away for a girls' weekend once a year. This year, we decided to stay closer to home and go to Franklin. We had a wonderful stay at Magnolia House B&B. We arrived earlier than expected and were able to check in early. We, easily, walked to lunch down the street. After lunch, we came... More

Thank you for choosing Magnolia House for your girl's weekend. It was a pleasure having you with us. I too discovered the wasps making a home while cleaning the porch and rockers. They no longer have their home there and I am soo thankful you did not get stung. Hopefully you will return to Franklin for a relaxing time. Robbie More

Expected more from this highly rated B&B. Everything was OK but not super. I think we got off to a bad start because we arrived while the innkeeper was away. Although a nice note was left with the key, we weren't quite sure if we could have bottled water or soft drinks from the mini fridge in the TV room... More

Had another wonderful weekend at Magnolia House...Breakfast was delicious....not only tasty but a beautiful presentation. Robbie always makes things easy. 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.

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.
