Date: July 28, 2007 My husband and I could not wait to post our review of the Magnolia House Inn in Lexington, Va. First the town itself is a must see and the Inn is within walking distance. We found ourselves walking to dinner each night to great restaurants. Over the years we have stayed in a number of B... More

We were looking for a romantic getaway to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary and found it! WOW, the Magnolia House Inn was just perfect! We were able to choose from a couple of available rooms. The hostess was kind enough to let us look at each and choose our favorite. Each one was unique, immaculate and beautiful decorated. We chose... More

We stayed at the Magnolia House Inn during a busy football weekend. The owners put us in their "suite" and moved into the basement. They said it was the largest room in the Inn. The room was absolutely terrible. The bathroom is tiny and covered in brown rust stains. The room itself is in serious need of TLC, especially paint... More

We regret that the reviewer was disappointed, and we agree about the room's need for attention back in 2006. However, as they mention, it was the personal innkeepers' quarters, not described on our website--and not representative of our rooms in general--and offered only because the reviewers called to ask for a room on a weekend in the fall with high...

We visited the Magnolia House a few days before Halloween, very close to the peak foliage color time for this year. The area, the town and the B&B itself were all about as autumn-ish as could be; it was like some kind of movie about college-town America. The B&B is just a few minutes walk from downtown's campuses and quaint... More

It was graduation weekend for our daughter who was living about 2 blocks from the Inn. With 10 family members attending I decided it would be nice to be within walking distance of her apartment and town. The Magnolia Inn seemed a good location and we were able to reserve the entire inn. With more than one person you can... More

This was a lovely, calm, beautiful place to stay. The room was so comfortable...we both had a wonderful night's sleep...and breakfast was yummy. We were the only guests on the night we were there and so got the opportunity to chat with the owners who were bright and well versed. Their help in guiding us to interesting places to visit...

One of my favorite things about staying here was waking up in a beautiful room and being able to sit by the fireplace in our room and relax before breakfast. Breakfast was amazing! The hosts were gracious and seemed to serve us with joy in each aspect of our stay. There is a certain kind of peacefulness that comes from... More
