Welcome to the Inn at Magnolia Oaks and the beautiful mountains of Northeast Georgia – land of wineries and waterfalls. Located just minutes from Helen, Dahlonega, and Gainesville, Magnolia Oaks is the perfect place to relax during your visit. Four graciously appointed guest suites provide elegant accommodations and unsurpassed guest services. Heirloom antiques, luxury linens, heavenly beds and glowing fireplaces all add to the ambiance of another time. Filled with family history, the Inn itself is a replica of the owner’s grandparents’ homeplace. Curl up with a good book in the library or work on the puzzle always in progress in the parlor. Spend the weekend touring waterfalls, wineries, gold mines, or just browsing through antique shops. Be sure to save some time to unwind on the front porch just watching the world go by.

We spent the past weekend with two couple friends enjoying the Dahlohega Wine Tour and lodging with Terry and Marie at their lovely Inn at Magnolia Oaks. Their "business" represents a passion the couple has to extend genuine hospitality to their guests. From the time we were warmly greeted on arrival to the hugs we exchanged when we left, the experience was delightful.

I have wanted to try a Bed & Breakfast for quite some time, but my husband didn't think it would be something he would like. Well, we certainly chose the perfect one for our first experience! The Inn at Magnolia Oaks has set the bar quite high. Very detail was perfect, but I have to believe that the innkeepers, Marie and TerryDawson, are the true jewels. We felt like special guests of old friends. After telling them that we were interested in watching the Alabama game, we returned from dinner to find Terri in the library with the TV tuned to the right channel and game snacks on the coffee table. Chip and he thoroughly enjoyed cheering the the Crimson Tide to a victory. This morning we joined the other 3 guest couples for a wonderful breakfast of fresh ambrosia, S'mores waffles with bacon, coffee, juice and even a breakfast dessert of peanut butter pie- a first for us as well. Many thanks to the Dawsons for a wonderful experience.

We were fortunate enough to have stayed at the Inn at Magnolia Oaks a few weeks ago. It was the first B&B experience for my wife and I, and we were blown away. Terry and Marie were so welcoming, friendly and attentive. The house is so beautiful and it has a magnificent Anti-Bellum feel, with the huge white columns in front with a beautiful porch and swing that my wife and I wish we had more time to enjoy. Inside is just as gorgeous, the attention to detail is amazing; each room was so well done…very romantic. It’s also a short drive into Dahlonega. We felt so welcome, and so at home (I wish our home were as nice,) we would go back in a heartbeat. My only complaint is that we only had one night to spend there, and we are talking about a return visit, but next time it must be for at least 2 nights!

Cindy and I wanted a special weekend to celebrate our 29 years of marriage. The Inn at Magnolia Oaks was the perfect place to get away and enjoy the charm and hospitality of the finest host and hostess we've met. Terry and Marie make you feel more like a guest than a customer. The decor and attention to detail are unmatched. We look forward to our next opportunity to visit the Inn again.

The Inn at Magnolia Oaks is an absolute gem. The house itself is spectacular and the southern hospitality is equally exemplary. My wife and I completed a wonderful day of wine tours with an evening at the Magnolia Oaks...just awesome! Thanks Marie and Terry.

Terry and Marie Dawson are anticipating retirement from their most recent careers in real estate appraisal and education to spend time working together on the things they enjoy most - decorating, gardening, cooking, and most of all, entertaining. Terry is an avid Alabama football fan and enjoys collecting local art. Marie is the family historian and loves being as Southern as possible.

The Inn's specialty for breakfast was created by Innkeeper Marie Dawson. Toasted tea biscuits are topped with creamed chipped beef (made with fresh milk from a local creamery) and a pyramid of chopped hard-boiled eggs in the center. When garnished with fresh spinach leaves, the plate resembles the magnolias out front. Beautiful and delicious!
