What a great stay!

We stayed at the Magnolia Plantation in December. Convenient location to the downtown area of Gainesville. The host and hostess exude Southern hospitality. It was great to hear about the history of the home. Breakfast was awesome. Highly recommend.

Make You Feel at Home

This is the third time we have stayed at the Magnolia Plantation B&B in Gainesville, Florida and once again, it was a great visit. This B&B is located on "B&B row" in a quaint neighborhood near downtown Gainesville - very convenient to some fabulous restaurants. Joe and Cindy are excellent hosts and make you feel like you are family. We were in the Magnolia Room in the main house which is a very spacious room. Gainesville is a very "bike friendly" city. This B&B is a perfect location for our biking because it is just down the street from the Gainesville-Hawthorne Trail.

Beyond Expectations

Magnolia Plantation B&B is nothing short of Fantastic! Within minutes of meeting both Cindy and Joe, the Inn's owners, you feel you are reuniting with wonderful friends. From their warm smiles and the overall welcoming feeling you get as you enter their home is unsurpassed. Beautifully and thoughtfully detailed surroundings and attention to detail in all aspects....service, accomodations, common areas, grounds, meals and snacks is clearly demonstrative of their love and dedication for their home and their guests. When asked by Cindy what my daughter and I prefer for breakfast, I responded my daughter is a vegan (and raw food only) and I am one in the making, no further questions were required. Each meal Cindy presented beautifully with an array of fruits, vegetables and nuts, juiceof beverage and complimented with warm smiles and conversation. I have travelled quite extensively and asked Joe with some certainty of my answer " Cindy went to culinary school and is a chef?" His answer of "no" certainly did surprise me!! We stayed in the Jasmine room and it was very charming, filled with historic memorbalia, antique furnings and a very comfortable bed with down pillows! All areas in the Inn are meticulously kept, not sterile, and offer plenty of quite sitting areas, reading and reference books, videos and lovely surroundings to just explore. Their support staff is warm and friendly and anxious to accomodate any requests. Having never been to Gainsville, both Cindy and Joe effortlessly were available to offer recommendations regarding specific dining preferences, historic points of interest, bicycling routes and local evening entertainment. The neighbor is very quite and quaint....a step back in time. My daughter and I were there last weekend and I knew immediately I would definitely be staying there on all future visits to UF while she attends next Fall 2014. Until then, I am in the process of confirming next trip up to Gainsville to specifically visit the Inn again with my boyfriend in 4 weeks. I got a sense it is an ideal spot for a romantic weekend as well!!! It is close to all, yet you feel like you are in your own little world. Magnolia Inn is exceptional and I truly am without reservation, an ambassador of good will after my experience with Cindy and Joe. Carol R

Relaxed and elegant setting!

My mother and I stayed here recently on our way to Southwest Florida. Sadly we only got to stay one night but this is such a lovely setting. The house itself and the gardens are elegant and very peaceful. The owners were very friendly and enjoyed sharing their story. I will definitely stay here again next year!!!
