Could not have asked for nicer, or accommodating inn keepers. Our cottage was immaculate and we were given a brief history of their home. The Inn is located just blocks from downtown and dozens of restaurants. Have been to Gainesville many times, but never knew there was an historical B&B area. Worth every dime!!!! Did I mention the breakfast was...

My friends booked the whole place for a wedding in October. The whole property is beautiful from the moment you step in. The rooms and bathrooms are very clean and well kept. The furnishing and decor is really neat and well maintained. Owners are very nice and accommodating. I would definitely go back!

My husband and I wanted to get away early December and we decided to return to Magnolia Plantation B & B...what a great decision. We took our two small dogs with us and stayed in "Secret Garden". I can only describe it as enchanting - the garden was so serene with the trinkle of the fountain. We thoroughly enjoyed sitting...

We rented two cottages for two nights to attend my Son's wedding. Cindy and Joe are very friendly and have poured their hearts into the detailed decorating in each unit and ensuring a pleasant stay for all patrons. Fresh breakfast was top notch, and Cindy was always available for any needs. If you are looking for a modern minimalist decor...

We booked the Key Lime Cottage for our daughter's PhD graduation from University of Florida, in December. We were 5 adults, so the three bedroom cottage was perfect. The cottage was nicely furnished and well maintained. From the time of booking until check-out, Cindy was helpful and informative. The breakfasts were fabulous! Staff delivered breakfast to our cottage, which was...

Warmly welcomed in this special accomodation. Well equiped rooms, spacious and nicely decorated. Breakfast served in the garden. Every evening a glass of wine with cheese and crackers. It was a great pleasure to stay here.

I purchased a night here for my husband for his birthday since he loves B&B's (I was not a big fan...until now.) We had the Carriage House which is the second floor of a separate building.
