Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed March 25, 2013

I have stayed at The Magnolia B&B many times and each occasion is absolutely wonderful! The rooms are clean, comfortable and beautifully decorated. A delicious breakfast is always included- as well as wine, cheese/crackers and cookies at happy hour. The owners, Joe and Cindy, are marvelous hosts, terrific people and so knowledgeable about the Gainesville area. You will love every peaceful minute!

It was so awesome! We stayed in the Gardenia and the only thing that could've been better would've been a longer stay. Everything was excellent. The decor and grounds were stunning, Cindy and Joe were amazing, and every need was met and exceeded. Breakfast was always delicious and unique and every question I had about the house was answered by Cindy and Joe or in one of many scrapbooks. Snacks, books, movies and games were available at any time (the warm chocolate chip cookies were great!). The property was only a 2 minute bike ride away from downtown and close to everything else. Everything about this place was phenomenal and I hope to stay here again sometime soon.

The attention to detail and charming accommodations make this THE place to stay. We were in the Carriage House this stay and found it over the top wonderful! The owners are friendly and make sure that everything meets or exceeds your needs & wishes. The entire property is a peaceful and delightful place to be.

We had a 2 bedroom cottage with a living room, full kitchen, sunroom, and private walled garden with a fountain. It was very private and peaceful. We were there when the hosts were gone, so we didn't have breakfast or the afternoon wine get together, BUT our rates were discounted to make up for it. We enjoyed the Magnolia Plantation and Gainesville very much on our 4 day get away.

Room Tip: Our bathroom had a large whirlpool tub, but you had to climb into the tub to use the shower. People...

We visited Gainesville after a six-year hiatus and had a blast of a time. The two cottages we stayed in where immaculate, spacious and had all of the accommodations and then some (e.g., fenced-kin back yard--my city dog's first ever--and a jacuzzi tub). And the staff was amazing. Maybe my next visit won't wait six years.

This place has everything you want from a B&B: location, charm, home-made breakfasts, friendly hosts, and a nice Happy Hour at 5:00. It is a few blocks from the downtown section of Gainesville and about a mile and a half from the University of Florida. I would take it over a large, business-style hotel any day. The small cottages in the back are especially nice.

I had the opportunity to stay at the Magnolia Plantation B&B for only one night. Next time I will definitely stay longer. My room, the Magnolia Room, was absolutely awesome! I arrived in the evening and it had just grown cold. When I entered my room I was greeted by a fire in the fireplace and soft music. I had an in room, but seperate, bathroom with clawfoot tub and shower. There was a TV, CD player and radio, coffee maker and everything I needed to be comfortable. Breakfast was delicious and Joe and Cindee are friendly,gracious, and full of fun facts and interesting stories. I hated to check out the next morning, but will definitely return!
