My husband, two friends, and I recently stayed at the Magnolia House Inn while I participated at Dressage at Lexington.
After spending hours in the brutal heat and glaring sun, it was wonderful to enter through the iron gate, walk down the short but well-tended garden path, and enter into the cool, somewhat dimly lit home of our bed and breakfast hosts. This authentically decorated Victorian home provides a first floor parlor and second floor balcony for its guests, and subtly theme-decorated bedrooms.
Our friends stayed in the Equestrian Suite, which delighted them with framed prints, oils, and lithos of horses, as well as equine-oriented books and decorations. Our own bedroom offered comfortable chairs, writing desks, a fine bed, and even a fainting couch. Nothing seemed forced or contrived in the decor, rather, it was all reminiscent of the amiable acquisitiveness that characterized the American Victorian period.
We all agreed that we would stay at the Magnolia House Inn again if the opportunity presents itself.
