Magnificent Magnolia House

This is a place that feeds your soul. Joyce's peaceful and soft spoken manner welcomes you with open arms and southern hospitality. Do yourself a favor. Let her take care of you. You will always remember your stay and will surely return again and again. Lovely rooms, every amenity you could want and didn't know you needed, soothing music, beautifully presented delicious food. This is a very classy, but not stuffy place. You will love it. I do. Marie-Louise
