Have stayed at the Magnolia House on two dates. Robbie and Jimmy truly make you feel like you are home. Hospitality/breakfast/accommodations are all superb. The convenience of the establishment to the downtown area is an added benefit. Will be returning to Franklin periodically, so get your appointment calendar ready Robbie!

My daughter and I stayed at the Magnolia House Bed and Breakfast while visiting colleges. We stayed in the front room, which has two twin beds. The room was large enough to hold the beds, plus two comfortable chairs. Everything was tastefully decorated and we slept well in the beds. But the best part of the Magnolia House are the... More

Both my room and the common area were extremely comfortable and well decorated. I experienced pleasant and responsive service. I will be returning to Franklin, Tennessee later this year and will once again stay at Magnolia House Bed and Breakfast.

This is a wonderful place to stay. The hospitality is incredible & the evening was delightful. We highly recommend you stay here. The food was incredible & the B&B is nicely situated close to downtown for entertainment purposes. Enjoy your time.

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!

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
