Expected more from this highly rated B&B. Everything was OK but not super. I think we got off to a bad start because we arrived while the innkeeper was away. Although a nice note was left with the key, we weren't quite sure if we could have bottled water or soft drinks from the mini fridge in the TV room...

Our recent stay at Magnolia House was simply wonderful! Such gracious hosts, a BEAUTIFUL home and every amenity you can imagine! Our room was beyond clean and comfortabe, and because the entire second floor "belongs" to guests, we had lots of privacy.

This was a amazing experience. Robbie was an excellent hostess. Accommodations were Just like home. Bed and room were well attended. Room for relaxation and close to downtown. That is nothing compared to the over the top breakfast with an equally appealing presentation. Franklin is a beautiful town and staying at the Magnolia was the icing on the cake. No...

This is a wonderful place to stay if you want to be pampered, Mrs. Robbie and Mr. Jimmy go above and beyond to make you feel welcomed. I have stayed in many B&B's and this one was the best of all. The food was excellent.
