“Heavenly”
Reviewed June 16, 2009

We stayed in the "Carriage House" and it was breathtaking. The bed was so comfortable and the wrap around veranda was amazing. Sitting out there made us feel like we were in a tree house. We felt like we were in a different place it was so surreal. Cindy the owner was gracious and her breakfast was delightful. If you haven't tried this B&B then you are missing out. We will definitely be back!!!

Our first impressions were of the grounds which are green and lush. Our family had a separate cottage with full amenities, including a working kitchen, TV, a CD player and CDs and shelves of books. The decor was lovely and high quality. The breakfasts had a selection of high quality food choices. There were snacks and wine in the afternoon. Finally, all the people working at this B&B went out of there way to be helpful.

This was our first BnB but I am certain we could not have stayed at a better place. Cindy and Joe are wonderful, the garden and house are far more beautiful than any photo will ever capture and the atmosphere was so relaxing we didn't want to leave.

We stayed at the Magnolia Plantation Inn for my son's wedding. We stayed for three nights, and had our entire family occupy the premises, all rooms and all 7 cottages. 'The gardens and fountain were gorgeous, plus all sorts of little touches to make the place dreamy. The service was impeccable and the breakfast was a delight. Fresh baked goods and exotic fruits plus any special requests.
It was a memorable event, and the place made it even more so.There is a gazebo and little bridges over water. The foliage is lush, and the main house is history come alive.
You will love all the little touches with all the conveniences.
I plan to have a reunion there for next year.
All my best, ayala

This was an awesome place to gather for an informal wedding with our family. We had so much fun staying here. The water fountains, gardens and charming cottages were more wonderful than we expected. Joe and Cindy helped to make our stay a memorable one.

We were a group of 14 people gathered for the wedding of my neice. There were several beautiful garden locations to hold the ceremony and we selected one by the fountain. It was lovely. Some of our party stayed in cottages on the property. My husband and I stayed in a room in the main house. These arrangements gave us the flexibility to have our privacy or gather as a group.
Cindy and Joe were personable without being smothering. Their attention to detail was marvelous. All of the staff were delightful.

The Magnolia Plantation Bed & Breakfast is a beautifully restored 1880's estate owned and run by two really nice people. Joe and Cindy make you feel welcome the minute you arrive and treat you like good friends for your entire stay. The rooms in the main house are all very well decorated with antiques, big comfortable beds and bathrooms. Most rooms have claw ball tubs and gas fireplaces and are very romantic. They have a very good website. Lots of things to do in Gainesville and your close to everything. See you in the Fall Joe and Cindy!
