If you want to spend some days in peace and quiet in a wonderful villa in the forested mountains of north Georgia, this is the place. The furnishings are wonderful, the kitchen well equipped and the view just wonderful!! This is a 5-star accommodation!!

Always a pleasure... Home away from home.... Impeccable breakfasts and super comfortable beds! Gotta love this place. In Gainesville the place to stay for a unique experience. Don't miss the opportunity if you are in the area. Great for romance or families.

We love to stay at Magnolia Plantation because it's a step back in time. Very private cottage with lovely fenced courtyard and fountain. Jessica's Cottage is always our choice because of the wonderful sun-room, cute kitchen to prepare our own meals and cozy living room with the most perfect appointments...games supplied in T.V. entertainment unit. The two bedrooms are beautiful...

We stayed in the Cinnamon cottage for three days (July 26-28). The cottage was clean, cute, and stocked with all the necessities. I am very hot-natured and once I reprogrammed the thermostat (sorry Cindy), I was very cool and comfortable. We had guests in the second bedroom on Saturday night and they enjoyed the property as well. The location is...

This is a fabulous jewel in downtown Gainesville, close to many good restaurants. You feel as those you have walked back in time, as Cindy and Joe have left the landscaping very natural to central Florida. I stayed in the Carriage House (above the Summer Kitchen) and it was sumptous to say the least. The breakfasts are marvelous and Cindy...

It is amazing to see all the special little touches in the Secret Garden Cottage. They thought of everything. The staff was very accommodating since I had such a late arrival time and early morning departures for my workshop.... thanks for making my stay special and supporting my strange schedule. I will recommend your B&B to all my friends. Pam

What a fantastic stay I had at the Magnolia Plantation B&B. I'd emailed about a last-minute request, and Cindy got back to me ASAP, and so accommodating. Got to meet Joe and the gorgeous Abbey (collie), other guests who had already become members of the family. Couldn't imagine a better place to stay. (And so clean - how do they...
