Just stayed @ Magnolia House for 2 days and nights on a business trip to Franklin that I make frequently ( my 4th stay in the past 6 months ). I first discovered Magnolia House in 2016 via Online search w/ the intent to find alternate accommodations vs the usual hotel stay that can offer reasonable rates but more importantly...

My wife and I stayed at Magnolia House a few weeks ago, it was our first B&B experience and we loved it! Mr. Jimmy and Mrs. Robbie have a way of making you feel like old friends as soon as you walk in, the room and bed was great and the breakfast was phenomenal. Would give this 6 stars if...

Wonderful, spotless, comfortable, spacious, guest oriented, convenient, delicious breakfast! What else is there to say? Magnolia House is located on a main road in and out of the town of Franklin TN. For convenience, there is no place better. We parked, checked in and walked into town to shop and eat dinner at one of the many restaurants there. The...

Beautiful house, lovely room, own entrance, coffee always available. Everything is so tastefully and beautifully furnished and decorated and the owners are absolutely lovely. The breakfast was fabulous. Thank you! It was our wedding anniversary, we were over from the UK, we ate at the Cork and Cow and then returned to this lovely and comfortable room. Thank you!

We traveled to Franklin for a concert in the Theatre Downtown. We needed a place to stay within walking distance. I'm so happy that we found the Magnolia House B&B!! It is a lovely home with many antiques, but very homey and comfy as well. The walk to downtown was very easy and nice. The couple that owns the B&B...

This was by far the best B&B experience that we have ever had! The rooms were clean and beautifully furnished. The beds were really comfortable!!! There are three common areas upstairs that are all comfortable and inviting in their own way: a cozy living room; a large sun room, and a wonderful wrap around porch with a swing and lots...

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....

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
