We enjoyed our stay at Magnolia House. The house is very cute and when you arrive the innkeeper gives you the history of the house. We thought that was neat. Our room was clean and well kept. The breakfast they serve is delicious! We will definitely go back.
5 on July 14, 2014
Hosts are warm and welcoming and they have thought of every detail. I appreciated the cleanliness of the home. Very nice bed and breakfast. I would stay there again and highly recommend The Magnolia House to others.

Just stayed here and I was very impressed with the staff and the huge room we had. Very clean and the neighborhood is very quite. Close to main street if you want to do some shopping.

We stay at the Magnolia House a few times a year to visit wineries in the Fredericksburg area. A friend recommended it highly, raving about the breakfast and the service. I'm not really a 'breakfast person' but we thought it would be fun to do a romantic getaway. We were utterly blown away by the entire experience. Claude and Lisa are friendly and helpful without being obsequious, and have the knack of being available without hovering or intruding. The rooms (we have now stayed in the Lilli Marleen and Peach Blossom rooms) are relaxing and comfortable, with plenty of charming little touches to make each unique. We love to ease into our weekend with a few of Claude's fresh-baked cookies and a glass of wine on the backyard swing, and then hit the road Saturday fortified with an amazing breakfast for our winery adventures. I mentioned not being a breakfast person? I am at Magnolia House. Every offering is a treat, from poached egg cups with sausage in, to french toast or scones. The conversation with other guests is lively and interesting. Though it's obviously a business and the owners are very professional, they've managed to cultivate the air of staying at a friend's comfortable country home for a house party, with knowledgeable local guides to point out a new winery, a favorite restaurant, or simply a great place to grab a pizza.

This was our second stay at the Magnolia House, and just as before, it could not have been better. Claude and Lisa are the most wonderful hosts anyone could ask for and the food is even better. If you are looking for a great B&B experience Magnolia House is the place to be. 6 Stars!
5 on May 26, 2014
We've stayed with Claude and Lisa 3 times now and wouldn't think of staying anywhere else in Fredricksburg! It's a home away from home. The attention to detail goes way beyond any expectation and the gourmet breakfast each morning is absolute heaven! The home is beautiful, the company delightful and we always get a great night's rest in the comfortable surroundings.

We stay at the Magnolia House every time we visit Fredericksburg--sitting out on the patio and watching the fish in the pond and listening to the birds is so relaxing! The owners make you feel right at home and have thought of every little detail when preparing the room from lint rollers, flashlights by the bedside, comfortable robes in the closet & movies and books available too. The beds & pillows are VERY comfortable but the specialty breakfasts are probably what make the whole experience at this B&B so extremely exceptional!!! Claude puts his heart and soul into everything he makes and it is served on a beautifully set table of fine china. If you are a wine lover, you will definitely love this area--there are approx.23 wineries on the main road from Johnson City to Fredericksburg and the Wildseed Farm is another intriguing place to visit too. We always leave one evening to go to Luckenbach to sit under the trees and listen to those individuals jamming and singing in a circle out in the back behind the store and hoping that one day we might get a glimpse of Willie Nelson joining that circle of friends!!!!

We have stayed at a lot of B&B's around the country, and the Magnolia House definitely has earned the top spot. Attention to detail, hospitality and the food are amazing. We will definitely return.

There is not much more to say.....Outstanding! The rooms are so clean, the food delicious, and the service is great. Lisa and Claude do a great job making you feel comfortable.

For the 10th year in a row we stayed at the Magnolia House for out Easter Weekend mini-vacation. It was as wonderful as ever. Claude and Lisa are perfect hosts and Claude's cooking gets better each year. The accommodations are excellent and the location is close to all the Main St. activities, but far enough away to avoid the hustle-bustle. The loudest sound you hear is the call of the mourning doves each morning. The daily cookies are not to be missed.

My husband and I received a gift of two nights at The Magnolia House in beautiful Fredericksburg, TX. On arrival, our host, Claude, greeted us and shared the history of this lovely home. He then introduced us to other guests that had arrived earlier and were enjoying coffee, tea and fresh baked brownies!! We were shown to our room which was much bigger than expected, with LOTS of extra little additions that made our stay so very enjoyable. The suite was clean, neat, not overdone and had LOTS OF CHARM!! The private bathroom was spic and span...and the bed and bedding, so VERY COMFORTABLE. Coffee and tea are always available...also a lovely supply of soft drinks, water and wine. BUT THE BEST PART...are the FANTASTIC, DELICIOUS BREAKFASTS, and the beautiful way that they are presented each morning. Truly, they are made fresh, with much thought and care... and served at a beautifully set table. Our host and hostess, Claude and Lisa, went to great pains to make sure our stay was most enjoyable. ..even before our arrival. They made suggestions of what to see and do while in the area...and could even make reservations if asked. Guess you can tell that our trip was a special time for my husband and I...and the thing that made it so was The Magnolia House and the lovely new friends that we made while there. We only have one question for our host and hostess... Is a 3 pound weight gain NORMAL after a visit to The Magnolia House??? Just asking!!! Sharon Knolls
4.6 on March 25, 2014
We have stayed at many B & B's and the Magnolia House is definitely our favorite. Claude & Lisa were wonderful hosts. We are planning another trip to Fredricksburg in the Fall and wouldn't think of staying anywhere else. Pat & Ken Moore
5 on March 22, 2014
We are reluctant to share our wonderful experience with anyone for fear that there will not be a room available for us the next time we want to stay. Everything was perfect! Every possible need was anticipated...from treats upon arrival to other amenities such as even a lint roller in our room! The accommocations and breakfast were outstanding. We look forward to a return visit of a longer duration.
5 on March 21, 2014
Sight unseen and booking this site online of course gives one a wee bit of trepidation. However, upon arrival. meeting our host and going through the arrival process, we were both made to feel at ease and welcomed much to our delight. I have nothing but good words about our experience. We will definitely stay here again the next time we are in this area. The breakfast was delightful both in content and presentation. I will recommend this B&B to all with whomever asks!
5 on February 23, 2014
We spent the weekend at Magnolia House and had a marvelous time. I honestly could have just stayed there all day and relaxed. Claude and Lisa were charming and professional, very helpful and thoughtful. I chose this B&B partly because of the advertised gourmet breakfasts and it more than lived up to expectations.
5 on February 16, 2014
Amazingly beautiful place! The owners are incredibly sweet. My girlfriend and I will be back.
4.6 on February 13, 2014
We have stayed numerous times at The Magnolia House over the years. Lisa and Claude provide a wonderful place to relax and enjoy the hill country. Their hospitality and excellent breakfast service is not to be missed. We return all the time due to their location, the home size( five rooms/suites), food quality, and their hospitality. On this last trip, Lisa recommended we drive on route #1376 for a scenic tour of the hill country. It is was wonderful.We highly recommend the Magnolia House.
4.8 on January 26, 2014
We stayed at the Magnolia House for our anniversary, it was wonderful! They are very helpful with ideas of where to visit and go eat. The breakfasts are great, and it's nice to sit around and chat with all the other guests over the food...

Great weekend and wonderful host
5 on December 20, 2013
Claude and Lisa very gracious host. Outstanding facilities, bedroom and common areas. Relaxed each afternoon in one of the two sitting rooms. Very helpful providing information for our first visit to Fredericksburg, restaurant recommendations great! Gourmet breakfast was creative and delicious. Will stay there again.
5 on December 09, 2013
This was one of our top stays in Fredericksburg to date. What you really notice when you are out-and-about in town is that you see other big B&Bs completely dark and empty you know Magnolia is where you belong. It's the same thing in many industries, even when there is significant competition, the real winners are busy as can be. There are lots of attorneys but few who get lots of business, same with Dentists, Doctors, Veterinarians, Car repair shops - you name it - the best ones are busy because they deliver Value. Magnolia delivers lots of value. The house is perfectly clean, the service is luxurious, and they have little details like reading glasses and earplugs. Not to mention DVD's, games, cookies, chocolates everywhere...nice handmade soaps. Why stay anywhere else? All the big chain hotels cost about the same, but the experience at Magnolia is truly luxurious.
5 on December 03, 2013
My wife & I decided to try something different this year since the kids were out of town. We tried this delightful B&B in Frederickburg. I have many good things to say, so let's start with the house: Really nice and cozy setting. It is off of the main street, which is something we wanted. My wife is a light sleeper and the noise off of the main street would have been too much for a restful sleep. We walked the neighborhood and to the downtown area. At night we saw three deer a block or two away from the house on our way home from downtown. The hosts were great. I got up early and went downstairs to coffee and got a chance to chat a little with Claude and Lisa. These are two really great folks who did all they could to make our stay great. They were there when we needed and out of the house when they weren't - this is a good thing, almost like a good referee in a basketball game, the best ones are the those that you don't even notice. I loved listening to their stories about the town and the house. For Thanksgiving dinner we were planning on eating in one of the downtown eateries. The night before we drove 15 minutes to Luckenbach, TX to listen to some guitar picking. As we were leaving everyone was so nice and invited us (and anyone else for that matter) to the Thanksgiving get together the next day. It was a "pot luck" type of dinner with the local providing the Turkey and serving. There was a small donation to the veterans. We brought some pies and had one of the best Thanksgivings ever. The folks were great, there was some really good local guitar music and singing for all. I would highly recommend this B&B. We are already planning on going back in the spring to do some cycling. Absolutely beautiful area..
5 on December 02, 2013
The Magnolia House far exceeded my expectations! The food was fabulous! Lisa and Claude were excellent hosts and provided our every need from afternoon snacks, wine and soft drinks to a full medicine cabinet for things we may have forgotten! I highly recommend Magnolia House to anyone looking for a great place to stay!
4.2 on December 02, 2013
We enjoyed spending our anniversary with Claude and Lisa at Magnolia House. They were perfect hosts, available without "hovering". Good recommendations for local restaurants and Claude's breakfasts were more than outstanding. We would definitely recommend this B&B!
5 on November 11, 2013
This was our third time staying here. I don't think we would want to stay anywhere else.
5 on November 04, 2013
My husband & I celebrated his retirement here and it couldn't have been a better place to do so. We were very pleased with our room, food, guest and most of all the host & hostess.
4.8 on November 04, 2013
Very quiet B&B away from the main drag but still a walkable distance. Claude made wonderful breakfasts and Lisa was a joy to meet. Wonderful bed and very clean. I'd go back!
4.8 on October 27, 2013
We had such a wonderful time at the Magnolia House! Claude and Lisa make you feel right at home. Thank you for sharing your gift of hospitality us. It shows in every detail of our stay that you truly love what you do. The breakfast was AWESOME! Getting to know the other guests that we shared breakfast with was very enjoyable too. We will definitely be coming back to visit our new friends at The Magnolia House! Brook and Becky Matthews
5 on October 27, 2013
We stayed in the Magnolia Suite this past weekend, and it was such a treat! The owners, Lisa and Claude, treated us like family. The room was beautiful and clean. The breakfast each morning was delicious, and we enjoyed visiting with the other guests during our stay. If you appreciate all of the little details that make a B&B stay special, the Magnolia House is for you. It was a memorable weekend in Fredericksburg! We'll be back!!
4.6 on October 25, 2013
Located away from the brouhaha of Main Street and yet so close, we found this charming and peaceful home away from home. Beautifully decorated, impeccably clean, quiet with access to a delightful patio where one can enjoy reading a glass of wine and/or meditate. All that coupled with a delicious healthy breakfast, served with the most delicate dishes by wonderful and attentive to details hosts. Driving away, we felt a sense of leaving something precious, something special that we were so lucky to experience. We are looking to come back very soon.
5 on October 24, 2013
Our cousin reunion in October 2013 was a great success, thanks to the inn keepers of this wonderful, historic home, located on a quiet neighborhood street that is close to shopping and golf course. Our rooms were lovely, and the gourmet breakfasts were a real treat each morning.
4.8 on October 14, 2013
My sister and I have stayed in many B&B but we found Magnolia House to be the best yet. I really appreciated the privicy of the house and yet the very close fellowship with the other guest. Of course, the breakfast is the reason we chose Magnolia and were not disappointed in the least. Wonderful !!!!!!!!
5 on September 14, 2013
This was are second visit to the Magnolia House. The hospitality, the food and the house were just as expected, great. Our hosts were very helpful with local tourist and dining information. We had a very enjoyable stay.
5 on September 13, 2013
We love the Magnolia Bed and Breakfast. The food, rooms, and hospitality are A #1. If you are in Fredericksburg, you need to give it a try. Lisa and Claude are great hosts. Trudy and Jon
5 on July 28, 2013
My husband and I have stayed in many bed and breakfasts over the years, and Magnolia House has been the best yet. We felt so at home as Lisa and Claude did not miss one detail. From afternoon cookies to delicious breakfasts, the hospitality was terrific. We will be back!
4.4 on July 14, 2013
A professionally handled B&B, far about the normally good B&B. Breakfasts are chef quality, and the time the owners put into detail assures that all of the needs of the guest are taken into account.
5 on July 11, 2013
We loved staying at this beautiful home in Fredericksburg TX. The home is very quiet and beautifully appointed. The American Beauty room was great. The owners, Claude and Lisa are wonderful hosts, and made us feel very welcome and comfortable. Breakfast was delicious. We highly recommend the Magnolia House!
5 on July 08, 2013
the owners thought of absolutely everything to make our stay a wonderful experience right down to a nite lite in the bathroom and comfy bathrobes in the closet. It was as if they were going to stay there themselves. Courtesy beyond our expectations and the breakfasts can only be described as "gourmet"
5 on July 05, 2013
Claude and Lisa are wonderful...accommodations amazing...and breakfast outstanding. You will love it! Fredericksburg is a quaint , cool town minutes to great wineries and tastings... don't miss it!
5 on July 04, 2013
Why anyone would want to stay in a sterile motel room when they could stay at Magnolia House for around the same cost is puzzling.
3.8 on June 27, 2013
The Lilli Marleen room was beautifully appointed and using a detached bathroom was not inconvenient. The temperature in the room was warm and sleeping on the polyester sheets kept us a little too warm during the night. The overhead fan really helped. The afternoon cookies were delicious. Breakfast was adequate and tasty. There was a sense of serenity in being further from the hustle and bustle of downtown Fredericksburg. Overall, our experience was relaxing and refreshing. We appreciated the hospitality of Lisa and Claude. Larry and Sandra Good
5 on June 21, 2013
The Magnolia House was an excellent choice for our first Bed and Breakfast experience. Upon our arrival we were greeted with utmost warmth and congeniality. The charm of the southern decor made us feel at home.The soothing colors, the feel of the linens, the bath amenities, soft drinks/wine in the refrig and most importantly the immaculate condition of our suite.The Bluebonnet Suite seemed like it was designed with us in mind. Having beautiful 2 course gourmet breakfasts served to us with the other friendly house guest also enhanced our stay. Our plan is to return someday thanks to Lisa and Claude.
5 on June 07, 2013
What a wonderful way to spend our special occasion. We have stayed at The Magnolia House before and everything was as perfect as the first time. THey are constantly updating and always make us feel very special.
4.8 on May 29, 2013
Lisa & Claude are the most gracious hosts! They made it all look so effortless. Our visit was so enjoyable I'm sure we will be returning. Our breakfasts were so delicious, my friend bought Claude's cookbook. I hope she invites us for breakfast soon. I would highly recommend Magnolia House when visiting the Fredericksburg, TX area.
5 on May 29, 2013
My husband and I love all of the things to do and see in Fredericksburg, but this last trip was all about rest and relaxation. We booked our stay at the Magnolia House, because we wanted something warm and cozy and not right on the main strip. We could not have been more pleased with our decision. This place was all that we had hoped for and more. Claude and Lisa the owners were wonderful. You can really tell they love what they are doing. I have never seen more attention to detail with the amenities any where else. There were fresh warm cookies out every day and a fridge stocked full of drinks for the guests, including wines. The breakfast every morning was heavenly. Claude and Lisa cook a two course breakfast that would rival any fine dining restaurant. We stayed in our room most of the time just to rejuvenate and really never knew anyone else was there. Claude and Lisa always took care to keep the place quiet and relaxing. The Magnolia House had such a warm and homey feeling to it. The stay there was just what the doctor ordered.
5 on May 28, 2013
We just returned from our second stay at the Magnolia House which has become one of our favorite Bed & Breakfast. Very Relaxing weekend with friends. Magnolia is located close to Town. Exquisite rooms and Home. Beds very comfortable and sheets dreamy. Amazed by owners attention to every detail. Stayed in a Suite which had all the comforts of home. Claude continued to amaze us with his culinary skills providing a sumptuous breakfast each morning. Grounds meticulously kept with outside patio which has a koi pond and waterfall. Surrounded by sounds of nature, birds singing and a visit one evening by a doe. Walking distance to Main St shopping, restaurants and close drive to Wineries and Vineyards on Hwy 290 and the Wine trail. Close to Nimitz Museum, Rockbox Theatre and Main Street Fredericksburg. We have already made a future reservation. Well done Claude and Lisa! Sharon & Bob G Dallas, Tx
5 on May 22, 2013
Husband and I were absolutely delighted with our stay at Magnolia House. Chuck and Lisa were wonderful hosts. Everything had been thought of, including reading glasses in case you forgot yours! The B&B is beautifully maintained and felt very warm and welcoming. We will be back again!
4.8 on May 21, 2013
We returned from our enjoyable visit to Fredericksburg, TX, and The Magnolia House two weeks ago. Every positive thing that others have written we more than agree with. Claude, Lisa and Maggie were so nice and helpful with suggestions and directions. The House itself was full of history and charm. Our room, The Bluebonnet Suite, was perfect for the three of us. We had all the comforts of home without any of the cooking and cleaning. Claude did it all! The location of The Magnolia House was close to everything. One of the things we enjoyed the most was our conversations with other guests that we met in the evenings or over breakfast. During our two night stay we met people from Wisconsin, New York, Florida, Arizonia and France. The French couple could not speak English but we could all laugh and enjoy each other just the same. Our girls week-end was terrific! I will and have recommended The Magnolia House to anyone who enjoys the homey feeling of bed and breakfasts. We hope to return!
5 on May 14, 2013
My husband and I decided to take a vacation to Fredericksburg as one last get away before having our first child. Being 7 1/2 months pregnant, I was a little apprehensive about traveling and not being able to sleep in my own bed. My nerves were immediately put to ease right when we stepped inside the Magnolia House. We were greeted with a smile and delicious chocolate chip mint cookies. We were then shown to our room, which was immaculate and the bed was so comfortable. Every minute of our stay at the Magnolia House was perfect and I highly recommend it!
5 on May 13, 2013
Our stay at Magnolia House was perfect. It was a girls' getaway to celebrate my daughter's 40th birthday. Lisa and Claude were the consummate hosts. The breakfasts were a feast for the eye as well as the palate. The camaraderie around the beautifully laid table was a wonderful beginning to our day. I have stayed in lots of B&B's but this one tops them all with the extra little touches these hosts provide. We looked forward to our afternoon freshly baked cookies- they even provided my gluten free daughters with their very own treats. We enjoyed a glass of their complimentary wine in the parlor before heading out to dinner. They have thought of everything... spa robes, toiletries and amenities, movies and books to borrow... if you want to be pampered and catered to don't miss Magnolia House. They even left my daughter candy and a birthday card in our room! We will all remember this as the best b'day celebration ever! Can't wait to go back!

This is a very romantic and great place to live. It is very clean and is decorated very well. The couple who own this place, Lisa and Claude and very nice and gave us some valuable information regarding our trip. They have some very good breakfast served in the morning. I enjoyed my stay here and will visit again!
5 on April 23, 2013
Very quiet place to stay. The breakfasts are amazing! Claude will cook you a different breakfast if you have food allergies. Beautiful place to stay and worth every penny. Be sure to book early!
5 on April 21, 2013
I have been going to the Magnolia House for eighteen years and it just keeps getting better. Recently spent three nights there and Claude & Lisa have continued to set the bar high for hospitality and service. The two-course breakfasts are exceptional - as good as one would find in a 5-star establishment! The afternoon baked goods are a favorite treat of mine - Claude has the hands of an angel, his baked goods are so light and delicious! The linens and rooms are superb and they truly make you feel like you are home with family!
5 on April 16, 2013
Just returned from a wonderful weekend get-away at this B&B in Fredericksburg with visiting family from Wisconsin. The hospitality and accommodations were top notch. We especially raved about the tasty breakfast cheerfully served in the morning. It was perfect and made the memorable stay so wonderful. We highly recommend and can't wait to return on our next visit to the area.
5 on April 08, 2013
My wife and I had a wonderful stay. The home is beautiful and the breakfast is terrific. The owners did a great job accommodating us and were very friendly and helpful.

Just spent another wonderful Easter weekend at the Magnolia House. Wonderful place to stay and really special hosts, Claude and Lisa. Claude's breakfasts and afternoon cookies are to die for. Lisa decorated the Easter Sunday table with little Easter baskets for each guest. Can't think of a better place to stay.
5 on March 22, 2013
We had a wonderful stay. Can't wait to try the things in the cookbook. Everything was top notch. Thanks again for everything. Pat and Harvey Shirk Taylor, TX

My husband and I were thrilled with our stay at Magnolia House to celebrate our one year anniversary. We stayed in the Magnolia Suite and loved it. The room is impeccable. It is beautifully decorated and furnished, and it has its own convenient entrance on the side of the house. The owners, Claude and Lisa, were incredibly hospitable. They gave us great tips and literature for the happenings around Fredericksburg. Also, the breakfasts were delicious and, at other times besides breakfast, there was always a home-cooked snack, coffee, tea, water, and wine available. Know that Magnolia House is not right on Main Street and is not within walking distance of it, but we found parking easily and enjoyed getting away from the busy street at the end of the day. We definitely recommend Magnolia House.
5 on March 18, 2013
We enjoyed our stay at the Magnolia House so much. Claude is a fantastic cook, and breakfast was amazing!! The table was always set so beautifully and we totally enjoyed enjoyed the company at the table too. Lisa it's a great hostess and thinks of everything.. Even aloe for sunburns! This is a wonderful place to stay and I hope we can come back again soon.
5 on March 17, 2013
The Magnolia House exceeded our expectations in every way. A delightful home just blocks from Main Street, Magnolia House was an exquisite interlude for my wife and I. Owners Claude and Lisa Saunders were the perfect hosts. No, hosts is not the right word..."Friends you can't wait to see again" would be a more appropriate expression. From the sumptious homemade breakfasts to the impeccable decor, Magnolia House is THE bed and breakfaxt to book for visiting the quaint town of Fredericksburg, Texas, deep in the heart of the Texas Hill Country. Our stay in the Bluebonnet Suite immediately necessitated planning for our next visit! From the afternoon wine in the common room/ and or garden patio to the fresh baked treats to the heavenly sheets on the beds, no detail is missed. Our only sadness was when we had to leave! I heartily recommend Magnolia House to all those who want to experience true bed and breakfast hospitality.
3.8 on March 11, 2013
Lisa did a great Job in the absence of Claude, who we hope to meet on our next visit, which we have already booked. My wife and I found the house to be very comfortable. A bonus, was the friendlyness of the other guests we met. Several of them were return visitors. This is a very good sign! Ken Davis, Philadelphia, PA

Wonderful weekend away for two exhausted parents of twin 3 year olds who were fortunate enough to have grandma and grandpa give them a 2 day pass to freedom :) The Magnolia House was the perfect B&B for us. No detail was overlooked. The owners were incredible hosts who thought of absolutely everything to make our stay a great one. The home and room was neat, clean and comfortable. Breakfast and afternoon treats were delicious. Location was perfect for us - not too close to the main street noise, but only about 5 blocks away. We drove to Main St., but parking was free everywhere, so this was very convenient. We look forward to going back to Fredericksburg, TX and definitely look forward to going back to the Magnolia House B&B!
4.8 on March 03, 2013
Thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Very clean. We were not presented with a lot of dos and don'ts. The owners were very helpful & accommodating with our schedule. I would recommend this B& B. We stayed upstairs in the American Beauty room. The bathroom was very spacious compared to other B & B.
5 on February 23, 2013
Four couples visited Fredericksburg last week -- the girls to play in a Mah Jongg tournament, the guys to play the newly refurbished Lady Bird Johnson golf course. We chose to stay at the Magnolia House. Lisa and Claude have thought of EVERYTHING -- there are even reading glasses on the dining room table, flashlights by every bedside, and games,books and movies available. The Magnolia House is not only beautiful and tastefully furnished with period antiques, but it has some amazing architectural details that Lisa showed us. And the place is SPOTLESS. Our hosts were so gracious and accommodating - they moved breakfast up an hour so we could stick to our schedules - how nice was that of them? And boy oh boy, that breakfast! Banana pancakes, homemade cherry scones, baked eggs, wonderful sausage, and great coffee. We were asking Claude and Lisa to adopt us! And if you stay with them at Magnolia House, you will feel like a spoiled child and an honored guest. If you're going to the charming little town of Fredericksburg, you should definitely give these lovely people a call. You'll not be disappointed! Allison and Steve, Liberty Hill, TX

Very clean, comfortable, relaxing and did I say the breakfast was excellent. Claude and Lisa made us feel very welcome.
4.8 on January 05, 2013
2013 is the 20th year that we have gone to the Magnolia House. Place is best in town and Fredericksburg is always a fun place to go. Little of everything. Plan to go another 20. Great managers, great rooms and always entertaining guests from all over and all ages.
5 on December 27, 2012
Staying in the Bluebonnet Suite was a perfect fit for our 4 day stay. It is like a small well appointed apt. The Saunders' paid attention to every detail in the room and in the home its self. Delicious breakfast, always presented in a special way. Delightful cookies and pie treats in the afternoon. Coffees, teas and nibbles at the ready for all the guests. Just a mere mention of a need and it was seen too. We left, planning our return stay.
5 on December 18, 2012
From the friendly greeting at the door to the warm wishes for a safe trip home, the folks at Magnolia Inn did everything right. The host showed us around the property, and made us feel at home. They had all sorts of wonderful touches to make our stay special - drinks and snacks available all day, extra toiletries in case we forgot anything, a very comfortable living room and sitting room where we could relax, a pleasant porch with a fountain - everything was wonderful! Our room was very nice, and I loved the very soft sheets and comfortable mattress. And the breakfast? Absolutely great! We will definitely come back to Magnolia Inn - it was a wonderful experience at a very fair price!
5 on November 26, 2012
We are always made to feel so special when we stay at Magnolia House. Claude and Lisa are able to provide an excellent get-away setting. As always, the food is unique and is well thought-out according to the season or holiday. The room is exceptionally clean, and the service excellent. Thanks a lot! Eddie & Rose

Our stay at MH was great from the moment we arrived on the picturesque grounds. We were greeted by a most cheerful host that had a smile for as she led to what would be our place of solitude for our stay. Now as you enter this home you realize that Claude and Lisa have given this labour of love all the comforts that they have found to be most important when you are away from your home. There are so many final touches that come down to one important character that the Saunders both willing live out and that is hospitality. I have and would continue to recommend MH to anyone who takes interest in staying in Bed and Breakfasts that are willing to make sure that you feel as though you are always welcome.

The only issue was having to walk across the hall to get to our bathroom.

It was perfect, they thought of everything and everyone should stay here. We also did the wine tour as an option and that was amazing as well

The best B&B we have ever stayed in!!!! Food and customer service were simply excellent. The rooms were immaculate and the food was scrumptious. I highly recommend!!!

We just spent four memorable days in Fredericksburg celebrating our anniversary and the experience was made all the greater by the accommodations we had at the Magnolia House. This is a well-appointed old Texan home that's on the historical record right in the heart of Fredericksburg. We stayed three nights and enjoyed three great breakfasts by Claude who provided us with a creative gluten-free menu while he served all the other guests a new and different breakfast each morning. The house affords its guest spacious living areas with an outside patio for relaxing and enjoying good wine and conversation. I think the sleeping accommodations are about the most comfortable I've experienced, especially the Comfy sheets. It's a five-star B&B in our estimation. The hosts, Claude and Lisa, are very welcoming and think of everything.
5 on October 15, 2012
My wife and I have stayed at over a 100 B&B's throughout the US and Europe over the past 40 years and I would place the Magnolia in the top 3. Everything was perfect - the hosts, the room, the amenities, and the food. We think they've thought of everything. A really great experience that we would highly recommend.
5 on October 13, 2012
All things about the Magnolia House are Great. Claude and Lisa are gracious and inviting hosts. The breakfast is incredible. Don't pass through the Hill Country without staying. Adjacent to the Historical District. Many quant shops-- not touristy t-shirt stores. Mike and Alonda, Bella Vista, AR

My daughter and I stayed last weekend for my birthday celebration. Very lovely and large home. Lisa and Claude were wonderful hosts. We were very appreciative that they accommodated my daughter’s gluten free diet and the breakfasts were such a gourmet treat. I’m enjoying the cookbook they have for purchase, can’t wait to try their Vanilla Corn Bread! Had fun picking out a movie to watch from their extensive collection. Magnolia House is located in a quiet neighborhood just a few blocks from Main Street. This home should be your number one pick!
5 on October 10, 2012
If you read even some of the other reviews posted about the Magnolia House you will pretty much get the picture, "Claude and Lisa are perfect!" Hence there is no reason for me to be long winded the other reviewers have already said all there is to say. This is the best B&B you could ever stay at and out of the dozen or so my wife and I have vacationed at it is our favorite. Before Tripadvisor reformatted their website so you could only see the top attractions/hotels/restaurants etc in a certain city not only was the Magnolia House the number one B&B in Fredericksburg but it was the NUMBER one B&B in the entire state! Deservedly so! Enough said. Stay here, enjoy and say hi to Claude and Lisa!!!
5 on September 24, 2012
We have stayed there since 1991, and have always had a great experience. This time was no different. Lisa and Claude were very gracious. The breakfasts were just wonderful. Everything is top notch, from the house and rooms to the beautiful and very calming yard. Thank you, Lisa and Claude. Roselle and Frank

Enjoyed our brief one night stay here. The house was large and very well appointed. I thought the room rate a bit high for a midweek off-season stay, but we'll definitely consider this property for our next visit.

We spent our anniversary weekend at this gem, Magnolia House. It was immaculate, peaceful and restorative. Jill, the Innkeeper was there to assist us while the Owners were vacationing. She treated the Inn as if it were her own, and she treated us like family, not just guests. Our breakfasts were of gourmet caliber. We went to Magnolia House at the recommendation of our friends, who stayed there in July. We certainly will return and we will refer others to this wonderful Inn in Fredericksburg, TX.

Atmosphere was quaint and quite. Excellant place to relax and revive from stress!
5 on August 17, 2012
This b&b is the best that we have ever stayed!! You will not be disappointed. Attention is paid to every little detail in your room. The breakfast is not your ordinary menu. It was fabulous. We plan to return as soon as we get a chance. Claude and Lisa are the best!
5 on August 16, 2012
This bed and breakfast was by far the most wonderful place to stay. The owners Lisa and Claude go the extra mile to ensure your complete comfort and enjoyment. The house is simply gorgeous. They have "goodies" and drinks in the fridge for guests to enjoy. They have the most comfortable eets ever! They put so much thought in everything they do. The breakfast was incredible! We can't wait to visit them again.
5 on August 07, 2012
At Magnolia House you can expect the best of everything from comfort to exceptional breakfasts. Claude and Lisa make our stay wonderful, year after year. Romanitc and relaxing, charming and comfortable, all that and more. We would stay at no other place when we visit Fredericksburg.

Last Thursday my two sisters and I checked in at the charming Magnolia House Bed and Breakfast on Hackberry Street in Fredericksburg, Tx, and were surprised at how lovely the 1923, 4,000 square foot house that awaited us looked. The pictures we had seen on the internet did hold justice to how beautiful the house was furnished and decorated with matching drapes, bed and wall decor. The room was filled with all the amenities a weary traveler needs such as robes hanging in the closet, fresh towels and room service daily each morning. In the Bluebonnet Suite we had a 1948 refrigerator with a carafe filled with wine, canned drinks, and bottles of cold water! There was even the nice touch such as a lint brush hanging on the bedroom door. Cookies and wine were sit out in the living room for all the guests to share in the afternoon. Breakfast was divine! Lisa and Claude were our hosts and they were the most gracious couple. Claude was the chef and Lisa did about everything else. Each morning the table would be decorated in a different manner, maybe different colors or porcelain animals and always fresh flowers everywhere, even the rooms. It was such fun meeting travelers from different parts of Texas and leaving Magnolia House with new friends, just over a few cups of coffee a scone, and maybe a waffle. I plan to go back again. I wouldn't want to stay anywhere else in Fredricksburg now and this was my first time to experience a B&B. I told may husband he has got to experience the Magnolia House!
5 on June 24, 2012
This was the most wonderful experience. Claude and Lisa have created a warm, inviting atmosphere. The entire house was very clean and expertly maintained in a historical period setting. Claude is superb chef, the breakfast meals were better than what We have had in 5 star hotels. They keep all the details in mind and made us feel as welcome as old friends in their home. We recommend Magnolia House to everyone who is visiting Fredricksburg, TX
5 on June 24, 2012
Welcoming hosts; many extras (cookies in the afternoon), wine, soft drinks; delicious breakfast; beautiful grounds.
4.8 on June 23, 2012
Simply put, the Magnolia House was the best B&B at which we had ever stayed. Claude and Lisa both are master innkeepers and they work together to cover every contigency, all to give their guests an outstanding experience.
5 on June 20, 2012
There are no words to describe the outstanding hospitality my sister Michelle and I received during our stay at the Magnolia House. This was our very first time at a B&B. I don't think I would ever want to stay at a hotel again. Claude and Lisa are wonderful hosts. Our room was very clean, adorable and spacious. The bathroom was clean and spacious as well. They thought of everything a guest should have or need. Loved the complimentary drinks , wine and snacks. It's definitely a home away from home. The breakfast was delicious. Claude should be a professional chef. It was my birthday weekend and this stay really made it extra special. I am definitely coming back to Magnolia House whenever I am in Fredericksburg or near the area. On a scale of 1-10 , this place is an 11! If you ever get to travel to Fredericksburg , stay at the Magnolia House. You will not be disappointed. Thaks again , Claude and Lisa! - Patricia Van Leur

We spent two nights in the Lilli Marleen room at Magnolia House to celebrate our anniversary. It couldn't have been more perfect! The hosts, Lisa and Claude, are delightful people--gourmet cooks, hospitable hosts and wonderful stewards of this turn of the century home. Visit them and see for yourself!
5 on June 08, 2012
Relaxing, spotless with every detail considered to make for a relaxing and romantic anniversary weekend. Delicious and fun presentation of each breakfast.

We spent two nights at the Magnolia House in the Bluebonnet Suite over the Memorial Day weekend and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The hosts are wonderful, and Claude is a great cook. It is a beautiful home, and we would definitely stay there again. The Martins

My husband and I just returned home from a wonderful stay at the Magnolia House. Our visit could not have been better. The accomodations were immaculate and comfortable. The sheets were heavenly!!! From the lavendar bubble bath to a supply of drinks, coffee, tea and wine in the room made the stay even better. The breakfasts were OUTSTANDING!! I purchased the cookbook and hope to replicate the dishes that we had. We thoroughly enjoyed visiting with the other guests and found we all had lots in common. We heard we had some storm damage to our home while we were gone and arrived to a sweet e-mail from Lisa wishing us well. We highly recommend the Magnolia House.
5 on May 25, 2012
We lucked out on our first outing to Fredericksburg, Tx. By chance, I booked two rooms for my husband and myself and our dear friends from New Jersey at the Magnolia House. We were all more than pleased to meet Lisa and Claude and view our beautiful, spacious rooms. The warm decor, immaculate bathrooms and beautiful garden were more than we could have hoped for. Claude's gormet cookies and breakfasts were truly a treat. If you are planning a trip to Fredericksburg in the future, I stronly suggest that you stay at the Magnolia House. You will not be disappointed. We hope to go back soon.
5 on May 21, 2012
A great B &B with a real comforable relaxing environment. We have stayed there 3 tims and will hopefully vist there many more times in the future.

We are teachers and wanted a place to get away. Perfect for this. We loved sitting around the koi pond and watching movies at night in our suite. Lots of fun!

We had a wonderful experience during our stay at the Magnolia House! The breakfasts are the best and Claude and Lisa did everything they could to make our stay there perfect. We will definitely be back for another stay and will recommend it to everyone we know!!! Larry & Andrea Norris
4.8 on May 07, 2012
This was our first stay at a B&B....and we loved it!! Some of the other guest that we met were return guest there and always stayed at this same place because of the location....off the main street....so very quiet...and peaceful....the rooms are beautiful....the beds and linens awesome! And the Innkeepers Claude and Lisa are just the greatest.....so helpful and nice...I would stay here again.....I am thinking for our first stay at a B&B....we got lucky!!
5 on May 05, 2012
The Magnolia Houst has a quiet and lovely setting in a comfortable home. The breakfast and amenities are outstanding. Owners live in a small cottage behind the house and can be called upon if needed. Soft music plays in the morning room to relax with a glass of wine in the evening, or coffee and the paper in the morning. Comfortable beds and all necessary provisions are supplied. Privacy is good, even for the rooms with detached baths.
5 on April 18, 2012
My husband and I stayed 2 nights in the Bluebonnet Suite! We had a wonderful time. It was very relaxing and the food was terrific. Claude and Lisa were very friendly and answered all our questions about Fredericksburg. We would stay again!

The Magnolia House is truly home away from home! Claude & Lisa made our stay so enjoyable. The gourmet breakfast was absolutely delicious. We enjoyed sitting out by the Koi Pond having our cheese & wine. The Magnolia House is located in a quiet neighborhood not far the Main Street action. The beds were so comfy!!!!! You have to try the Magnolia House when you visit Fredericksburg, I know we ladies will definetly be back!!!!
5 on March 11, 2012
The Magnolia House is unparalleled in quality, attention to detail, value, cleanliness and service. Lisa and Claude are gracious hosts and they made us feel like we were visiting old friends, instead of paying guests. A few friends and myself were on a one day shopping trip in Fredericksburg and decided to stay at this B & B due to the excellent ratings. This B & B lives up to those ratings and then some! There is nothing Lisa and Claude have not thought of. When you think of Southern charm and hospitality...you will think of the Magnolia House after your stay. Claude's culinary skills are amazing and you can tell he loves what he does. Each dish was beautifully plated on pretty china, delicious and served in the beautiful dining room. The common areas are equally impressive and the property is very nice. Much to our surprise on this Thursday, we had the whole B & B to ourselves. We checked out every room for future stays and each one was charming and cozy. The Bluebonnet and Magnolia Suites are the true epitome of Southern Charm. The sheets are something to experience and you will want a set for your very own. The afternoon home made cookies, wine, sodas and soft music playing in the living room is just a sample of what this B & B has to offer their guests for a wonderful experience. I would not hesitate to stay there again and would recommend it to everyone. Go visit Lisa and Claude's beautiful home and all it has to offer. We are already planning another trip.
5 on March 08, 2012
The entire B&B is so warm and professionally decorated. The host and Hostess are so delightful and they provide a wonderful breakfast. Never stayed in a place so clean.
5 on March 04, 2012
We come in each year and enjoy Fredericksburg but we LOVE the hospitality of Claude and Lisa who own the Magnolia House. PERFECT accommodations,food,drink,laughter and feeling safe. We will NEVER stay anywhere else:) EVER!!! Susan and Eli

Being a road warrior, I am used to staying in sterile, chain hotels so the Magnolia House was a special treat while in Fredericksburg on business. What a special place! Calude and Lisa were fantastic hosts and made my stay special. I loved the coffee bar set-up in the dining room so that I could indulge my coffee habit at will and my room was spacious and accomodating to the business traveler as well as tourist. I would highly recommend the Magnolia House to anyone visiting Fredericksburg for any reason!
5 on February 19, 2012
This was our first visit to Fredricksburg and we would could not have picked a lovelier place to stay. Lisa and Claude were so helpful and accommodating...the food was spectacular! (Thank you Claude!) And Lisa made sure every detail was taken care of. We felt like family!
5 on January 11, 2012
Lisa greeted us and made us feel like old friends. We loved our room and the whole house - we felt very comfortable. Claude made an outstanding breakfast both mornings of our visit. We had a sit down meal with the other guests at nine each morning. We will definitely return.
5 on January 08, 2012
We just returned from our weekend at the Magnolia House and it was wonderful! Lisa and Claude were very gracious. We loved out room which was lovely and our breakfast each morning a treat. We would and will return for another visit and recommend it to everyone.

Wonderful shower in the bathroom with a bench, it was a little high though.

My friends and I take a two day Christmas trip every year and stay in a bed and breakfast. The Magnolia House was by far the most comfortable, and every need was met. The two course breakfast was absolutely wonderful. The sheets were the most luxurious I have ever slept on! I highly recommend the Magnolia House. Sharon
4.4 on November 28, 2011
The home was beautiful. We very much enjoyed our room (Peach Blossom), and especially the bath tub, which was so nice it made us run late for check-out time! :-) The innkeepers were fantastic from start to finish. Making reservations was easy, and I really appreciated them letting me make them by phone. I received several reminders of my stay. We were warmly greeted upon arrival and shown the house and our room. Huge perks like the use of a refrigerator, free wine for the taking, and if we had forgotten something (razor, toothbrush, etc), they had those complimentary. The breakfast was FANTASTIC. The service was outstanding. We will certainly be back for another stay. I would (and already have done so) recommend this B&B to anyone I know. Have I said fantastic? I have? Good, it's worth repeating!
5 on November 23, 2011
Claude and Lisa are a team and make sure you are taking care of in many ways. The home is very clean and nice. They have fresh baked cookies and coffee in the evening. Other beverages are available for the guest anytime during the day. The comfy sheets are the best I have ever slept on. They can be purchased through Lisa. Claude's breakfasts are Oh My are out of this world. Several sitting rooms for you to relax with movies, books and music. The grounds are fun. Sitting areas for you to enjoy your coffee that is freshly prepared for you in mornings. Calude and Lisa go the extra mile to help you feel right at home.
4.8 on November 21, 2011
The hosts seem to have thought of everything - luxurious sheets and towels, bathrobes, game collection, DVD collection. There were freshly baked evening cookies, and the breakfast was scrumptious - unusual flavors such as lemon pancakes, eggnog French toast, poached pears, blackberries...we were blown away. When we asked about a restaurant in Marble Falls, they found a quiet, reasonably-priced Italian place that was perfect for meeting a friend. Highly recommended!

The accommodations, food and hosts were outstanding, a wonderfull experience.
4.6 on October 21, 2011
My wife and I have been to Fredricksburg many times, but have not found a house more welcoming and comforting than the Magnolia House. This was our second stay there. Claude and Lisa always make sure that all of our needs are taken care of! I would highly encourage any visitors to book a stay there!
3.4 on October 10, 2011
The stay at Magnolia House was part of a birthday celebration. The weather was perfect which gave us the opportunity to have a glass of wine in the evening outside by the gold fish pond. The room was larger than expected and the bed was quite comfortable. Both of the breakfasts were outstanding. We enjoyed sharing conversation with several of the other guests during both breakfasts.
5 on October 07, 2011
We had a wonderful time our host was most greatest and the food was excellent and the rooms were great. I would recommend that any try it you will love it. Claude and Lisa were great to us. Enjoy and relax.
5 on October 04, 2011
Lisa and I were so pleased with our stay at the Magnolia House that we are anxiously looking forward to our next opportunity to visit. They are so excellent and we're telling everyone we know that they must visit this wonderful B&B if they're ever in delightful Fredericksburg. Thank you! - Ed
5 on September 25, 2011
This was our first time at a Bed and Breakfast. We couldn't have been more please with our stay. We were pleasantly surprised with their breakfast, it was like having a personal chef. Claude was truly amazing with his cooking skills. Claude and Lisa were great. The Magnolia house is very roomy and the out door space is very nice. We will be back! I highly recommend it to everyone. You will not be dissappointed.
5 on September 12, 2011
Our most recent trip to Magnolia House was a family event to celebrate my Dad's 80th birthday. My husband and I had stayed there before, but my Mom, Dad and sister had not been there. They had heard us rave about it, and agreed that it absolutely lived up to our gushing. The rooms are great, and Claude and Lisa have taken care of every detail. Claude's breakfasts are exceptional, with amazing choices that make each day very special. If you're ever going to Fredericksburg, you MUST stay at Magnolia House!
5 on September 11, 2011
This is our favorite B&B in Fredericksburg. This was our 5th stay and was just as superb as our first. The hosts are incredibly warm and friendly and go out of there way to make you feel at home.
4.2 on September 09, 2011
Thank you for the stellar hospitality. The house is beautiful, the surrounds lovely (despite the drought) and a very nice quiet neighbourhood made for great sleeping - not to mention those incredibly comfortable sheets. If it wasn't so darn hot I'm sure we would have enjoyed many a walk around the neighbourhood or down to Main Street but given the 100+ temps we opted for the air-conditioned car most days. Breakfasts were great, I wish I could have finished them!
5 on August 01, 2011
The Magnolia House was a perfect bed and breakfast for my fiance and I. It felt like home away from home. Claude and Lisa were very nice and helpful! The sheets were amazing and so was the 2 course breakfast. I highly recommend this bed and breakfast!
4.6 on July 30, 2011
Enjoyed the initial tour and explanation of the Magnolia House. Innkeepers pleasant. Quiet location, beautiful outdoor swing, which we enjoyed with a glass of wine, provided by the Inn. We would stay here again.
4.8 on July 05, 2011
This was our first B&B, but if all of them are like this, we are definitely doing this again. It is more expensive than a hotel room, but the beautifully decorated cozy feeling room and quaint old home charm make it seem worth it. Claude and Lisa were very gracious hosts and tried to make us feel right at home (literally). Claude is an amazing cook, so breakfast was beyond our hopes. Even though we want to try other B&Bs, we will more than likely be going back to Magnolia House again as well, only this time we will stay longer.
4.2 on July 03, 2011
My wife and I stayed in the bluebonnet suite. We loved it! Claude and Lisa were excellent hosts and breakfast was awesome and very filling (we only needed to snack before dinner)! The location is a little far to walk to Main St for shopping but it's a short car ride or perfect bike riding distance. They also provide refreshments like wine and cokes, coffee and tea for you to grab during the day (or night). We would definitely stay at Magnolia House again and will recommend it to friends.
4.8 on June 27, 2011
The Magnolia House was a wonderful two days of elegance and peaceful rest. The Bluebonnet Suite was tastefully decorated, with wonderful bedding , totally private, quite and peaceful surroundings. We have stayed in many B&Bs, but this one will be the only one we stay at in Fredricksburg from now on. The Innkeepers were delightful. The gardens were pristine with lovely spots throughout for just sitting and enjoying the flowers, water pond, fountains, koi fish, shade trees....If you must connect your dread computer - they have internet connection but if you need rest this is the spot. The afternoon handmade snacks and beverages were a surprise as were the delicious breakfasts. The Innkeepers thought of all the details from lavendar bath salts to jars of chocolates in the rooms. The libraries both books, dvds, cd's and magazine/newspapers were lavish compared to some B&B's. The complimentary wine caraf of delicious wine was a special treat. We highly recommend this delightful inn.
5 on June 13, 2011
We stayed three nights at the Magnolia House, starting Sunday May 29, 2011. Since this was our second stay in 13 months, we decided to try a different Suite - the Magnolia Suite. This Suite was terrific for entertaining old friends from nearby Hunt, TX. Lisa & Claude are truly the consummate Innkeepers. Suzanne & Ed - Richardson, TX.

Quiet, relaxful get-a-way. Very clean and stylish rooms. The breakfast was outstanding. Very gracious hosts.

I recently stayed at the Magnolia House Bed and Breakfast while I was in Fredericksburg on a Girls Weekend Away with two friends. Our visit and stay could not possibly have been better. Claude and Lisa are the most charming hosts and we felt so welcomed in this lovely home. They have not missed a single detail in making the Magnolia House the best Bed and Breakfast that I have ever stayed in. The linens on the bed are divine - I didn't want to come home to the ones on my bed! There are wonderful robes provided in the rooms. All rooms have a television with a DVD player and Claude and Lisa have a closet full of DVD's from which to chose. The bathrooms have every amenity needed, including a hair dryer. Claude and Lisa leave wine, sodas and water in a refrigerator for guests to take, at no additional charge. And at 3 pm every day a wonderful treat appears. We had brownies and cookies and they were so yummy. The breakfast is beyond outstanding. There is a beautiful first course of fruit and a pastry followed by the main course. The two days that we were there the breakfasts had a delicious egg dish, pancakes and sausage one day and a spinach, mushroom casserole, french toast and local ham the next day. We go to Fredericksburg frequently and from now on our stay will always be at the Magnolia House. Next time my husband and I will take our bicycles to ride the beautiful Texas Hill Country and they can be safely placed in the garage at the Magnolia House. Every moment of our stay here was absolutely fantastic!
5 on May 23, 2011
The Magnolia House provides the extras that make this bed and breakfast a cut above the rest. It starts with the cookies and continues with the extras especially with the robes and bathroom accessories. The room was perfect very clean with a comfortable bed and furnished just right. You feel like home there and Lisa and Claude are there if you need them for anything. The breakfast is simply the best Claude can cook with the best of them. We will return again and again.
4.6 on May 16, 2011
We had never stayed at a Bed And Breakfast but after this fabulous experience at the Magnolia House will do so again. The accomodations, location, food were all exceptional!!
5 on April 26, 2011
This was our second visit since our honeymoon in 1995. The new owners, Claude & Lisa, have really done some outstanding changes to all aspects of what a B&B is suppose to be all about. The grounds are beautiful to enjoy a cup of coffee in the morning. The gorgeous interior is very welcoming and has a good spirit. The owners are very pleasing and are on top of everything to the smallest detail. Wow, the breakfast is absolutely wonderful and they even have a book of recipes available. Too bad we only had a few days stay. Will be back as soon as possible. Highly, highly recommend this B&B. It's the Best!
4.4 on April 25, 2011
It was awesome! I really felt at home and the owners were wonderful. If I am back in town I would stay again! Outstanding

Innkeepers Claude and Lisa make your stay as comfortable as humanely possible with high quality linens and towels, wine and snacks available in the afternoon, a delicious, gourmet breakfast, and a friendly atmosphere. The house is lovely and large.
5 on April 19, 2011
Claude and Lisa are wonderful hosts. They have thought of everything you might need and have prepared for it. They are knowledgeable about the area, the restaurants and festivals in the area. We stayed July 4 weekend and went to a local winery they recommended and enjoyed the best fireworks! This trip we were there to see bluebonnets and there were none, but they had information on many other things going on in the area. Claude's cooking is amazing! There is something for everyone and it all ties in so nicely together to complete the breakfast. They are lovely people, so friendly and want you to enjoy your stay with them as well as your stay in the area. The rooms are clean and comfortable. The patio is so peaceful. The home is comfortable and there is plenty of room. Don't pass this one up! Stay here if you are in the Fredericksburg area!
4.8 on April 19, 2011
I went up to Fredericksburg for a long weekend and booked Magnolia House based on reviews I found online. Lisa and Claude run a great B&B, and Claude's food is great. Everything he made tasted wonderful and there was a lot of it! I only had to eat 2 meals a day, since breakfast was so filling. The suite I stayed in was large and so pretty, but the walls are pretty thin, so if your neighbor is snoring loud, you will hear it! I would definitely come back here on my next trip.
5 on April 01, 2011
This is was our second trip to Magnoila House Bed & Breakfast and it was just as perfect as the first trip. We felt peaceful and relaxed from the moment we got there until the moment we left. The gourmet breakfasts were awesome. We can't wait to return next year for a couple of more nights of sleep on the best sheets ever!!
5 on March 27, 2011
Claude and Lisa were so gracious and hospitable and have the perfect little bed and breakfast! I would recommend staying here to anyone! The rooms were so cute and clean, the service was impeccable, and the food was delicious! It had everything you could possibly want in a bed and breakfast!
5 on March 07, 2011
Claude and Lisa, the Inn Keepers have this down! We have stayed there many times. We love their wonderful breakfasts and the interactions with the other guests. The house is a lovely historical place and beautifully decorated. We feel like we have made friends with Claude and Lisa and always look forward to staying at the Magnolia Bed and Breakfast in Fredericksburg! We love the Magnolia room but we have stayed in the others as well and they are fabulous. The sheets are heaven! Cookies in the evening, what more could you ask for?!!!
4.4 on March 06, 2011
We had a wonderful stay in the former master bedroom. The house and grounds are beautiful and peaceful. The food was terrific and the host we met (Lisa) was very helpful and charming.
5 on March 01, 2011
We've stayed at many b&b's through the years and have generally loved every one of them. In addition to the beautiful room, fantastic food, cleanliness, etc., what made this one particularly outstanding was the friendliness and the helpfulness of the owners: they gave us ideas for where to eat, what to do, etc., and were so responsive to little details about us, such as noticing that I like several cups of coffee early in the morning with lots of half and half, both of which they provided generously! We would definitely stay there again!
5 on February 28, 2011
You will love the gourmet breakfast, heavenly sheets and quaint but warm atmosphere! My mom and I will never stay anywhere else!! Claude and Lisa make you feel so welcome and special the minute you arrive!!!

We stayed 2 nights at Magnolia House. From the gourmet breakfasts in the morning to the silky sheets at bedtime, we had a wonderful experience. We highly recommend the Bluebonnet Suite at Magnolia House!

Magnolia House was by far the best experience I've ever had at a B&B. First, it was a lovely, and lovingly cared for, old home. Lisa and Claude are in the right business as they made me and my sister feel so welcome, comfortable and "at home". Lisa gave the welcoming tour and Claude did the cooking. His breakfasts rival anything you will find in any of the "finer" restaurants or Hotels anywhere. They were beautiful, delicious, interesting and unique. Every afternoon, there would be goodies on the buffet in the form of brownies, lemon-ginger cookies or chocolate chip-oatmeal cookies. Coffee and tea were always available. Our room was lovely and charming, not to mention comfortable. And the sheets were the softest I have ever felt. I will visit there again one day and will recommend Magnolia House to everyone looking for a lovely, quiet and charming place to go for a get-away.

This was our first experience with a Bed and Breakfast and what a great one we chose! From the hospitality when we walked in, to the amazing rooms, to the little amenities and topped off with an excellent and delicious breakfast, this is the perfect getaway experience through-and-through.

Ok, I don't like B&B's. I've only stayed at 6 or so and have never been pleased with them. I prefer anonymity to intimacy when I'm on vacation and find that the inconveniences of B&B's far outweigh any charm or marginal breakfast they provide. I called to check availability and spoke to Claude. I was immediately impressed with his friendliness and reasonable cancellation policies. The house is deceptively large. The first thing I noticed when Lisa was giving us the tour was the condition of the house. This house is amazingly maintained. All the doors that I used were smooth and tight and the walls were free of settle cracks. The paint was fresh and bright and carpets clean and in good condition. But, the thing that is most impressive for me is the cleanliness. This place is super clean. I didn't see any dust or dirt anywhere. The bedroom and bath were spotless. Even the vents and registers looked new. It almost had a "new construction" clean about everything, nothing collected in corners or out of the way places. The second thing I noticed was a tremendous attention to detail. They pay very close attention to even the smallest details and everything that can, has their name on it from towels and robes to soap and ink pens as well as full candy dishes all throughout the house and rooms. Now for the charm of inconvenience. Some rooms have baths in the room but ours actually had separate toilet and shower area. We had to go through a small common hall to access the toilet on the right or shower on the left. So, we had to don robes to go to bathroom or take a bath. Not my favorite feature, but what can you do. Breakfast: The food at the Magnolia House is higher end restaurant quality. We ate 3 meals and never had the same thing twice. T Another really nice touch is an old icebox that’s converted to a community fridge. They keep water bottles and soft drinks on hand and there’s space for you to store you leftovers from restaurants.

I have stayed at many B & B's and this one is at the top of my list. Very clean, private and comfortable. I only had one breakfast there and it was amazing, but my husband and son ate every morning and said breakfast was the best ever. If you are looking for a clean, comfortable place to stay close to town this is the place.
4.2 on November 23, 2010
We had a wonderful time. Next time we stay we will be sure to get a king size bed as both myself and husband and 6foot tall.

My husband and I had never been to a B&B before, and we enjoyed our stay imensley. This past weekend was our 2 year aniversary. The idea of being in a home away from home was comforting. Claude and Lisa were very sweet and attentive. Breakfast was five star. The sheets and the Robes were UH-mazing!! The living spaces downstairs and the outside patio were so inviting and relaxing. The home is full of character and the other couples were a delight to meet. The only thing I would change is the mattress. It was a bit firm for me, but maybe some are ok with that. The sheets definetley made up for it. We have been ruined. B&B's are the best way to go when traveling or even a staycation. I would definetley visit and recommend Magnolia House!! This will be an aniversary we will never forget. Thank You again Claude and Lisa. Chad and Zana

Lisa and Claude provide a wonderful atmosphere that is like staying in the elegant home of a good friend. Wine and cookies in the "family room" every afternoon and evening. Open refrigerator with wine, juice and water available at all times. Wonderful, full breakfasts prepared by Claude, e.g., homemade raspberry scones one morning. Decorations are exquisite. The smallest details are taken care of. Very charming home, nice backyard, good location - about 1/2 mile from the main street of Fredericksburg.

My best friend and I made the Magnolia House our "home base" during a 2-day bicycle trip through the Hill Country. Very nice rooms, amazing breakfasts and friendly innkeepers! Was close enough to downtown to walk in to dinner. I would definitely stay again.

The pictures don't do this place justice. The place is wonderful. There was even a flashlight on the night stand! Looking forward to our next visit!

The Magnolia House was one of the best B&B’s we have ever stayed in. I took my wife there – without her knowing where we were going. It was a great surprise and our hosts, Claude and Lisa were great. The breakfasts were awesome and it is located right down the block from the square. We will definitely be going back again.

We relied on the positive reviews of this B and B so chose the Magnolia Suite for our two-day visit to Fredericksburg. We were not disappointed. The only "drawback" was that Fredericksburg is such an interesting destination that we didn't have enough time to enjoy the comfort and attractiveness of Magnolia House! Claude and Lisa especially emphasize the serving of a wonderful breakfast - unique recipes, beautifully presented. The house is a well-constructed and maintained and historic Arts and Craft home which has maintained its original charm over the years.
5 on September 27, 2010
Absolutely stellar B&B from the delicious elaborate breakfasts, warm homemade cookies in the afternoon, calm & inviting backyard koi pond patio area, home full of history and beautifully appointed rooms, close location to Main, accurate and insightful restaurant suggestions, free wi-fi, accessibility to biking routes, incredibly soft linens on the beds and nice selection of DVD's to watch after a full day exploring Fredericksburg. Claude & Lisa's attention to detail and anticipating their guests needs without being intrusive make this our favorite B&B experience yet. We will be back!
5 on September 06, 2010
The Magnolia House is a wonderful place to relax and get away...my wife had a wonderful experience there and really enjoyed the surrounding area too. Close enough to walk to downtown main street, and Fredricksburg is a great weekend spot.

Everything from the food to the accomadating and warm hosts makes this b and b one of our favorites by far We will definitely return.

My boyfriend took me to Fredericksburg for a romantic weekend getaway. We got engaged while we were there and Lisa and Claude made our stay very special. I couldn't have asked for more thoughtful and accommodating innkeepers!
5 on August 11, 2010
We found Magnolia House on TA and booked it based on previous reviews. It far exceeded our expectations. So many nice little touches that made this B&B our favorite to date. The Blue Bonnet Suite is great...a sitting area and kitchen! The breakfast was outstanding and the bed linens...well I ordered a set for home! :) So glad we decided to stop in on a whim! When in Fredericksburg, the Magnolia House is a must!

My husband and I had our first experience at a Bed and Breakfast at the Magnolia House in Fredricksberg, Texas and couldn't have picked a more pleasant place to stay. Claude and Lisa Saunders were fantastic hosts and made us feel welcome from the moment we walked in the door. We learned the history of the house that was built in the 1920's and about the original owners. The house was immaculate and grounds were very well kept. The four huge Manolia trees in the front yard were evidently the source of the name of the house. The breakfasts were beyond compare and all the attention to details from refillable water bottles, to forgotten neccesities, to afternoon treats was marvelous. We were definately pampered without being overwhelmed. We hope to be guests at this home again...maybe to celebrate our next anniversary.
4.8 on July 17, 2010
Claude and Lisa were fabulous hosts, very welcoming. They were also able to answer all our questions about the area. They recommended two wonderful restaurants for our evening dining. The B&B was very relaxing, lots of extra special touches to make it feel homey and enhance the stay. Claude is a outstanding and creative cook - he combines local flavor to make the special breakfasts. The afternoon baked goodies are a neat extra.
5 on July 07, 2010
We had a great stay with Lisa and Claude. Breakfasts were delicious and delightfully served. Attention to extra details were not overlooked - from freshly baked cookies each afternoon to wine carafes filled for guests enjoyment, this couple sure knows how to make someone feel welcome.
5 on July 07, 2010
The room was fantastic...clean and spacious. The breakfast each morning was outstanding! The owners were nice and hospitable.
4.2 on July 06, 2010
My husband and I received a gift certificate to Magnolia House and were so pleased with our stay. We frequently stay at bed and breakfast inns when we travel and both agree that Magnolia House rates near the top of our experiences. The inn is very thoughtfully equipped with snacks, drinks, and movies, and both innkeepers gave us a warm and personal welcome. My husband and I both have dietary restrictions that have caused other innkeepers concern in the past, but Claude and Lisa took it all perfectly in stride and made us each individual meals that satisfied all of our dietary restrictions and were absolutely delicious. We hope to stay at Magnolia House again for another getaway soon now that we know such a comfortable stay is available to us.
5 on July 04, 2010
Everything exceeded our expectations. A wonderful three days. Will go again. ps. Breakfasts are to die for pss. Don't forget to buy their cookbook.
5 on July 01, 2010
The breakfasts were great. Claude and Lisa are very hospitable and friendly. The other guests were pleasant people and we enjoyed visiting with them.We also enjoyed the very large assortment of movies and music. We were in the morning room every morning early so we could enjoy the dieliious smells coming from the baking that Claude was doing. The upkeep of the grounds was great, very neat and enjoyable.
5 on June 27, 2010
The Magnolia House is a fabulous bed & breakfast. I have been about 7 times, with hubby, girlfriends and family. It is ALWAYS very clean, very comfortable. Great house with character and history. Friendly hosts and a "to die for " gourmet breakfast! The best part:) Would recommend this B&B to anyone looking for a relaxing getaway.
4.8 on June 08, 2010
Excellent bed and breakfast - close to everything in Fredericksburg, TX - breakfast was very good and filling (excellent chef) - hospitality was superb - premises were very well kept and the home felt just like that ... a home. My wife and I were traveling for our 25th anniversary (2nd honeymoon) and we stayed 2 nights at the Magnolia House. That's the best decision I have made in choosing places to stay. It was perfect.
5 on June 07, 2010
This was a girls weekend of shopping in Fredericksburg. We stayed at The Magnolia House and it was a wonderful experience. Claude and Lisa were so warm and kind and made you feel a part of the family. They serve a wonderful breakfast and every detail is attended too. I highly recommend this bed and breakfast for anyone who wants a quiet, relaxing place to stay.

This was a great find. We've never stayed in a bed and breakfast before, but this one exceeded our expectations. We stayed in The Bluebonnet Suite which was quite roomy. It had a little kitchen which was quit convenient. The breakfast was wonderful each morning. We were staying at the bed and breakfast with other family members to celebrate my parents 60th wedding anniversary. Claude and Lisa even made reservations to a restaurant they suggested and my parents had a wonderful time.

The setting of Magnolia House in Fredericksburg, TX is not only beautiful, but is peaceful and tranquil as well. The owners, Claude and Lisa provided outstanding hospitality and guest service. They have truly gone the extra mile to appoint the house with all a guest might need and warmly welcomed us initially and throughout our stay, letting us know they were available for any question or need that might arise. Claude prepares the most delicious gourmet breakfast that you can imagine. Let’s just leave it at that so you too can be surprised, but let me just say, “yum”! We stayed in the Lilli Marleen room. It is beautiful, warm and cozy. The owners were also kind enough to allow us to see unoccupied rooms and suites before we left. We found all of them to be fabulous, each unique and inviting. We learned that Magnolia House was built is the 1920’s by it’s original owner Edward Stein who was an architect. He took great pains to pay attention to every detail. The results are outstanding! I thoroughly enjoyed the home’s architecture with old style built-ins and nooks throughout the home including gorgeous fireplaces and glass cabinetry. The furnishings are gorgeous and distinctive, yet every single place I sat was “oh so comfortable” as well. I found not only one but several favorite places to sit, relax and take in the beauty of the home and grounds. In the evenings and mornings, one favorite was relaxing at the covered patio table by the koi pond. In the afternoons, I enjoyed the warmth of the sun on the front porch in a very comfortable wicker chaise. The porch is the perfect outdoor reading spot as you can feel the warmth of the sun, yet you are shaded. In addition, the way the porch is designed the opening between the bottom railing and the roof is huge; this creates a truly awesome panoramic view of the grounds’ Magnolia trees. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at Magnolia House and highly recommend to others.

I've stayed at many B&B's and this one is by far the absolute best. Claude & Lisa were outstanding hosts, extremely customer-focused and attentive to every detail. From the wonderfully comfortable bedding to the presentation of the delicious breakfasts, the relaxing music in the sitting areas, the late afternoon wine, the delightful patio, it was a fabulous experience and I highly recommend staying at Magnolia House.

We really enjoyed our stay. The room was clean and comfortable and the entire house/grounds had so much charm. Claude and Lisa made us feel as though the MH was our home and couldn't have made it a more pleasant First B&B experience. Claude is quite the cook! We also met some nice people- the other guests were very nice and we really enjoyed our chats with them at breakfast. You won't be disappointed! Steve & Amy Midland, TX

Magnolia House B&B was more than we expected for our first visit there. The host and hostess could not have been more helpful and they had anything we needed to make our visit most comfortable. I would highly recommend this B&B to anyone looking for a great B&B in the Hill Country area of Texas.

A lovely stay. Our host (Lisa and Claude) were informative but not intrusive. The breakfast every morning was to die for!
5 on March 18, 2010
Our visit to Magnolia House was lovely! The house itself is charming and the facilities were excellent. What made the visit outstanding, though, was the hosts! Lisa and Claude are creative, gracious, and thoughtful. Our visit featured many little "extras" and "surprises" designed to make guests feel at home. I really cannot think of anything they could have done to make our visit more enjoyable than it was! The breakfasts were a treat, and the hospitality was wonderful. We highly recommend it!
4.8 on March 14, 2010
They had the best breakfast every morning. I loved being at the table and meeting the other house guests. Free Wi-Fi, beautiful historic home, great outdoor areas, and Claude and Lisa were just beautiful people. They were convienently located right next to the downtown area. Claude and Lisa knew where to send us for fun too!
5 on March 08, 2010
My husband and I went to Magnolia House for some rest and relaxation. Boy did we get it! The house is beautiful with great attention to detail. The owners are friendly and made us feel right at home. The food was out of this world. We are planning to make this an annual tradition.

I spent the weekend at Magnolia House in order to gain some precious writing time, and I couldn't have been any more pleased with the outcome. Claude and Lisa were more than accomodating, and my space was positively enchanting, with a fireplace, the slow trickle of water outside my screen door, delicious cookies every afternoon . . . I couldn't have asked for a better place to work. I'll definitely be back.

We have stayed at 5 B & B's in Fredericksburg, and the Magnolia house is our favorite. Breakfast is serviced in the dining room and is fabulous. It is nice to have use of the house and yard. They serve a delicious freshly made snack in the afternoon as well as soft drinks ,tea,coffee and wine. The rooms are comfortable and nicely decorated. If you have forgotten anything, there is a nicely stock cabinet with just about anything you might need. Claude and Lisa are very gracious hosts.

My wife and I loved this B&B. The owners were warm and welcoming and the accommodations could not have been better. The homemade breakfasts were gourmet quality.

We can't say enough great things about the Magnolia House. Cleanliness, relaxing, quiet, comfortable, attention to detail, welcoming, courteous, delicious breakfast, warm, great outdoor patio complete with waterfall and koi pond. Don't stay anywhere else but here when visiting Fredericksburg, Tx.

From the fish pond and the waterfall outside to the comfortable atmosphere inside the house, our time at Magnolia House was wonderful. Add to this great food and welcoming hosts, we could not have picked a better place to stay.

THIS PLACE WAS BREATHTAKINGLY GREAT. If you stay anywhere else you are paying too much and getting too little. Request the Bluebonnet Suite!
5 on November 01, 2009
This was our first use of a B&B and it will certainly not be our last. Lisa and Claude have put together the ideal place for relaxation. Each morning at breakfast we felt as though we were dining with family thanks to the quality of care received. We'll be back!
5 on October 26, 2009
Our first time staying at a B&B and made a great choice. Would highly recommend the Magnolia House to anyone planning to stay in the Fredericksburg area. We had personnalized sevice, a beautiful environment and gourmet food and amenities.
5 on October 24, 2009
This was the first time for our "girls" trip. We couldn't have found a more wonderful place to stay. The breakfast's by Claude, with Lisa's help, were incredible and something to look forward to each morning. The house is historic with beauty and charm. The owners have thought of everything to make a guests' stay perfect and just like they had the amenities of home. Our BlueBonnett suite was perfect and we had the freedom to move around the main house as we wanted, to sit and talk, play games, sit outside or pick up a sweet goodie around 3 pm. We loved everything about our time at the Magnolia House and Fredericksburg. Lisa and Claude are knowledgeable about the area and are the perfect host and hostess. Thank you!!!
5 on October 24, 2009
This was my 2nd visit (stayed with a friend last fall) to Magnolia and the 1st for my husband - everything was wonderful and as I expected my husband loved it too! Claude & Lisa run a first-rate B&B - you can depend on it! The gourmet breakfast was superb - fresh juice, homemade scones, scrambled egg casserole, german sausage & blueberry pancakes! The sitting areas and our room were perfectly clean and organized with wonderful little touches which we appreciated: freshly baked cookies at arrival, wines, teas, cider, sodas & water always available, flashlights near the bed, cabinet stocked with necessities in case we forgot something. If you're not a fan of claw-foot tubs, rest assured they have done a terrifice job with the shower attachment - the best I've seen! At breakfast, we were impressed but not surprised that several of the others had been coming to the Magnolia for years - one couple has come twice a year for 9 years! P.S. Don't miss a visit to Wildseed Farms just outside of town & Rather Sweet Bakery on the main street! We enjoyed dinner at the Cabernet Grill too.

What a wonderful place to stay...Claude and Lisa provide the perfect ambiance for your getaway. They provide that extra touch of sincerity that is often missing in a Bed & Breakfast. Bill & Connie Mechura

The Magnolia House Bed and Breakfast was one of the best I have ever stayed and. My husband I always try to stay at a bed and breakfast when we travel and this one was GREAT. The food was wonderful and there was more than enough to fill you up and all home cooking. There were always mid afternoon homemade baked goods for a snack and there were always drinks of all kinds any time you wanted. My husband and I enjoyed borrowing a movie from their collection and relaxing on our room in the evening watching a movie. The owners were very knowledgeable about the town and things to see and do. It was very clean and very much like home you are made to feel VERY WELCOME. I would recomend this to anyone traveling to Fredericksburg.
4.2 on October 11, 2009
We stayed at the Magnolia House for my 37th birthday. this was our first B&B experience. Lisa and Cluade made it absolutely unforgetable.Our breakfast was amazing, never had better, and we travel often. The rooms were quaint, clean and roomy. The house is just down the street from all of the shopping. A must stay if in Fredericksburg...
5 on October 08, 2009
Lisa and Claude were very hospitable from the moment we arrived. We received a historical, logistical tour of the house and its amenities along with recommendations for dinner. Our quarters were just beautiful and clean, clean, clean. Breakfast the next morning was outstanding and gourmet served on antique china with crystal and silver sides. They enabled us to chat at leisure with our fellow travelers and we all left feeling the better for it! Would definitely return to Magnolia House!
5 on October 01, 2009
Our stay at Magnolia House was a surprise birthday present for me. We had never stayed at a B&B before and did not know what to expect. WOW!! The home and the grounds are in excellent condition. Claude and Lisa are wonderful hosts. We had one of the suites and it felt almost like home with a private entrance and private bathroom. Claude and Lisa had beverages & snacks available at all times. There were cookies as an afternoon/evening treat. The breakfasts were very good. The one drawback with Magnolia House being our first experience with a B&B is we are now so spoiled I don't know how many others can meet our expectations. We were spoiled rotten.
4.6 on September 25, 2009
We enjoyed The Magnolia House Bed and Breakfast from the time Lisa opened the front door to greet us, till we gave both her and Claude a big Texas hug good-bye, when we left 3 days later. They are the most gracious host you will ever meet, they add so many extra amenities to make your stay "Special." Claude's delicious gourmet breakfast is different and incredible every morning! The B & B is beautiful and sooooo clean. It was a pleasure to stay at the Magnolia B & B and we are looking forward to a return visit in the near future! Roger and Yvonda

Everything necessary for an incredible stay was anticipated. One of the best B&B's we have ever stayed at .
5 on September 16, 2009
We were greeted by the innkeeper and given a tour of the Magnolia House, complete with details of an interesting history. This B&B is beautiful, ultra clean, quiet and romantic. Claude Saunders did an amazing job with gourmet 2-course breakfast served on different china each morning of our stay. The antiques in each room are complimented by modern amenities and luxurious linens. Don't miss the small dishes of chocolate in every room or the home made snacks every afternoon. Whenever we are in Fredericksburg, Texas again, the Magnolia House will definitely be our first choice for accommodations!
5 on September 09, 2009
Our stay at Magnolia House was more than we expected. Claude and Lisa paid close attention to every detail...from the bottle of champagne and chocolates to the relaxing music on the CD. They even remembered my food allergy and prepared a special breakfast just for me. Boy, was I spoiled! Our 20th wedding anniversary will always be an anniversary to remember!

Claude and Lisa are wonderful hosts who anticipate your every want/need. Their attention to detail, from the umbrella by the front door to the flashlight on the nightstand demonstrated their understanding what makes them outstanding in the B & B world. The gardens were beautiful and extend the relaxation beyond the lovely house. Claude's breakfasts were incomparable! Highly recommend this bed and breakfast-you will not be disappointed!

We were greeted by the owner who showed us the entire home and told us all about it and also recommended two local restaurants. Beds were very comfortable. Breakfast was wonderful! Great experience.

Claude and Lisa were excellent hosts. We had the Lili Marleen room for our stay and it was beautiful and comfortable. The house was very nice and the breakfasts were phenomenal. We would not want to stay anywhere else and would recommend Magnolia House to anyone!
5 on July 23, 2009
We loved our stay at this bed and breakfast. We have had some experiences in the past that were not good with B & B's so we were taking a chance. It was a wonderful place and Claude and Lisa are just great people. They were very helpful, the food was great and they also are very respectful of your privacy. We would definitely stay there when we visit again. The rooms and bathrooms are very nice and roomy also.
4.2 on July 19, 2009
We booked at the last minute and were quite happy with our brief stay. The room was clean and atmosphere inviting. Clause and Lisa told us everything we needed to know and stayed clear of us to make us feel comfortable. The breakfast was outstanding as was the conversation with guests. I have no problem recommending the Magnolia House to anyone -- especially those leary of staying in someone else's home.
5 on July 16, 2009
This was our first experience at a bed and breakfast so we were not sure what to expect. What we got was a wonderful experience which has turned us on to B&B's versus the mainstream hotel/motel route. We were put to ease from the moment we walked in the door. We were greeted with warmth and given a tour of the facilities which were much nicer than we ever would have imagined. The facilities were top notch from the bedrooms, to the common areas both inside (full of snacks, reading and movie materials) and outside (wonderful garden area complete with coy pond and outdoor fireplace). The Bedrooms we stayed in had a separate living room and bathroom areas and were decorated beautifully. We had a full suite of bathroom items all ready in the room in case we had forgotten anything. The Breakfast Service was included as was phenomenal as each morning we were greeted with new and exciting meals which were absolutely wonderful. Claude and Lisa (The Owners) were extremely helpful long before we got there as they made the reservation process smooth and got us all of our dinner reservations throughout our stay well ahead of time, thanks to them listing all of the dining options on their website. Fredericksburg is a quiet little getaway in wine country in which you can take a wine tour to any of the 20 local wineries, or just enjoy the multitude of shopping available in all the shops around town, we did both! The B&B is located just off the Main street and is very close to everything you need to enjoy your weekend getaway, if you can pull yourself away from the amenities the B&B's offers!

We had the last room available which had a private bath that was located in the hallway. The room was fine but having to go out into the hall to use the bathroom was less than ideal. The house is very cozy and has some nice outdoor areas. The breakfast was very good and very plentiful. The owners are very attentive. A good value.

We enjoyed two nights at Magnolia House in Fredericksburg. The rooms,casual entertainment, & the wonderful breakfast meals were wonderful! We plan to go back again soon. Susan

Claude and Lisa are incredible hosts who see to your every need and think of everything - snacks, beverages, toiletries far beyond what other places make available, plush robes, comfortable and well-appointed rooms, reading materials, movies, tourist information, the list goes on and on! And the breakfasts!!!! We got to enjoy a homemade gourmet breakfast every morning that was better than any other B&B and better than most upscale restaurants. My husband and I planned to sleep in while we were there, but once we tasted breakfast, we were at the table each morning! We stayed in the Bluebonnet Suite, which was a lovely, comfortable, and roomy place to call our home away from home. While not decorated in our personal style, it had everything we could possibly want or need including a great view of the pretty backyard. We will definitely be back!
5 on May 25, 2009
Stayed in Magnolia Suite, peaceful, romantic, wonderful host, everything from cookies, coffee and tea to wine and plush robes for guest to use. Breakfast the best I have had having stayed at several Texas B&B's. Fresh fruit, homemade scones, ham, eggs and french toast. Thanks for a wonderful time!
5 on May 25, 2009
The Magnolia House is a lovely Bed & Breakfast with a very gracious host and hostess. The rooms are large, comfortable, with a lot of details to make it feel like home. The breakfasts are definitely 4 star.

It was all GREAT!!!! Lisa and Claude made us (7) feel welcome and very comfortable.

My husband and I and another couple visited Magnolia House on May 1-3, 2009. With it just being off the Main Street of Fredericksberg, I thought it might be noisy. What a delight to find the property well maintained, beautiful, quiet with comfortable outdoor seating around a pond of fish. The accommodations were fantastic, the breakfasts were delicious and well presented and the hosts so very accommodating. An overall wonderful experience, and one we will repeat.
5 on May 03, 2009
Our visit to Magnolia House was unbelievable! Nearly impossible to describe the beauty of this home and the thoughtfulness of the hosts, Claude and Lisa! They haven't missed a beat! The house itself is gorgeous, yet comfy and cozy. The backyard gardens are serene and inviting. Guests can enjoy motion furniture, a fish pond, water fall and fountain! There were so many special touches all day long....free-flowing red and white wine, treats in the afternoon, cold soft drinks, plush robes, flashlights at bedside! The breakfasts are enormous and absolutely delicious! Beautiful presentation on antique china, accompanied by crystal stemware and sterling silver flatware. A lovely way to start your day! We can hardly wait to return! A truly incredible experience. Thank you so much, Claude and Lisa, for turning your business into so much more than that....a loving retreat for all who are lucky enough to come to Magnolia House.
5 on April 29, 2009
This was my fourth visit to Magnolia House, and I have never been disappointed. Claude and Lisa are ever gracious and have thought of every need. We had a lovely reunion with the girls in my family and I can't wait to do it again.

We greatly enjoyed our stay at Magnolia House during our visit to the Texas Hill Country.

Everything was outstanding. The host and hostess were charming and personable. Chef Claude could work in a 5 star restaurant with his culinary skills for breakfast. It was clean, convenient to downtown, quiet and overall very pleasing and relaxing. We stayed in the Lili Marleen room pictured at right. It was spacious enough to accommodate the three of us quite comfortably.

Even though it was not Spring yet, the outdoor area was very attractive and enjoyable as we sat and had a drink by the waterfall with gold fish swimming in it and rocked in the double seated rod iron swings. In our room, the windows were open because it was a beautiful day and I love having the fresh air sweep through the beautiful room. Every evening, a fresh batch of homemade cookies were made for the guest and you could enjoy a glass of wine as well.

My husband and I had never been to a Bed & Breakfast and this far surpassed any of our expectations. It was such a warm and cozy establishment. We enjoyed the hospitality. We stayed in the Bluebonnet suite which had a living room, large bathroom, kitchenette and bedroom. The suite and house was uniquely decorated for the holidays. We felt right at home. The 2 course breakfast was wonderful! We enjoyed sitting out on the patio overlooking the coy pond while drinking some red wine. I highly recommended this B&B.

Very beautiful, decor is excellent, service wonderful and attentive innkeepers. Quiet neighborhood, even close enough to shopping to walk on a nice day. The table settings are different each day. Every room has a Christmas tree. I think it is the best in town. I have visited Fredericksburg often.
5 on November 30, 2008
Wonderful B&B! We stayed in the Magnolia Suite and it was magical! Claude and Lisa have a wonderful gift of hospitality, and they truly think of everything. The breakfasts are divine! We felt welcomed, pampered, relaxed, and at home. We would recommend Magnolia House to anyone!

The Magnoila House is the best B&B we have experienced. The room, the amenities, the house and the breakfasts were all outstanding.

5 on October 15, 2008
The week's stay at this B&B far exceeded my expectations. Lisa & Claude were the ultimate hostess and host. They personally greeted us, took us on a tour of the house and showed us to the room where a every afternoon snack is available along with a refrigerator stocked full of water, cans of sodas and white wine. Claude is a master in the kitchen and his creations are just wonderful. We only needed that meal and dinner. They recommended restaurants for each night and those also were excellent. They obviously have all the secrets of what it takes to make a visit to their "home" extremely special. Nothing is missing!!! I have already recommended this B&B to several people and I will certainly be back. Thanks to Claude and Lisa for making this trip so special.
5 on October 14, 2008

Our stay at Magnolia House was our first experience at a Bed and Breakfast, and the Saunders more than exceeded our expectations. The home was spotless and very welcoming. The gardens outside are beautiful, and a great place to sit and relax after a day of shopping in town. The sheets were the softests I'd ever slept on, I'd sware I was sleeping on a cloud! Claude cooked breakfast for the houseguests every morning, and it was nothing short of gourmet. He really should be a chef! We had such a wonderful time, that I think we'll be returning for Christmas!

We had a wonderful time in Fredricksburg, TX and loved our stay at the Magnolia House. The house was very clean and comfortable. We stayed in the Bluebonnet room that has a private entrance as well as a small kitchenette that was stocked with a fridge full of drinks and a coffee pot with coffee, tea or hot chocolate. There was also a separate living area from the bedroom that allowed my early rising husband to watch the news while I got a few extra minutes of beauty rest. Claude and Lisa Saunders were perfect hosts. They were very knowledgeable about the local points of interest and while being very friendly, they were not intrusive. We would recommend the Magnolia House to anyone planning a visit to Fredricksburg! Kim and Steve Ford

You two know your business and it shows in every little detail: from the room, to the grounds, to the food( great food!), wine, cookies, to trip supplies to just anything that we could ever need.

We were given our visit to the Magnolia House as a gift from our children--What a wonderful experience we had! The owners are so gracious and the Bluebonnet suite we stayed in was decorated to the max and we enjoyed having our own little kitchenette. The breakfast is worth waking up for and the peacefullness of the outdoor surroundings is so relaxing. Claude's afternoon baked goodies will tempt even those on a diet to taste-Yum, Yum! We will definitely be going back to stay at this charming bed & breakfast! Dennis & Susan D.

When we arrived we were greeted by Lisa and received the warmest welcome. She gave us a lovely tour of the home. We were made to feel as though we were family. Our room was fabulous! The room, linens and bathroom all exceeded my expectations. The refrigerator was stocked with cold drinks, white wine, bottled water, fresh baked lemon cookies greeted us when we arrived in our room! Our stay at the Magnolia House was by far the very best evening we have ever spent at a B&B! Claude's homemade breakfast was also by far the most fabulous we have had!

Our first experience at a B&B was at The Magnolia House in Fredericksburg and it definitely won't be our last visit! Not knowing what to expect, we received a warm welcome from Claude and Lisa. Everything from the chocolate kisses in our room to the homemade cookies and hot chocolate before bed gave us a cozy feeling of spending the weekend with friends. Our room was spacious, clean, and very bright and overlooked the fish pond in the backyard. My favorite part of the room was the attached attic bathroom! Lunch was never needed as Claude prepared a huge breakfast each morning (I bought the cookbook so that I might attempt to re-create some of his recipes!). Claude and Lisa have created a "Home away from home" with their Magnolia House. J&B from Kingwood, Texas
5 on June 30, 2008
Great accommodations and gourmet breakfast. Special treatment , homemade brownies or cookies in the afternoon and complimentary wines in the evening. Highly recommend this for a Hill Country getaway!
5 on June 29, 2008
The best B&B in Fredericksburg! Guests are pampered beyond belief! We walked in, end of a hot day, and there were homemade cookies waiting for us, cold drinks in the frig, and wine was waiting. Our room was fully stocked with everything you'd want in a nice hotel, including beautiful robes in the closet. The B&B was spotless. Guests have the whole house to enjoy. The breakfasts rank as fine dining. This is a first class operation and you won't be disapponted. Very quiet neighborhood away from the main drag, which has a lot of traffic.
5 on June 24, 2008
My wife and I celebrated our 1 year anniversary here. Great hosts, great service, and great food. Highly recommended!

This was my second visit to Magnolia House since the first visit was so extra special. I stayed in a suite on both visits and enjoyed the cleanliness, extra details and at home atmosphere of my room. Also, being able to access several parts of the house, dining room, living area & lovely pond & yard , made the visit very relaxing. The two course breakfast was wonderful and eating with the other guests all together made for interesting conversation. Claude & Lisa really make you feel at home !
5 on May 28, 2008
From the moment of arrival to the time of departure, Claude and Lisa provided gracious Southern hospitality in their beautiful Bed and Breakfast.

simply the best in every sense of a B&B. The rooms, the friendliness of Claude and Lisa as well as the awesome Breakfasts! You will not be disappointed.
5 on May 12, 2008
This was the best B&B experience we've ever had. From the moment of contacting the owners directly to book a room, until check-out, everything was flawless. Magnolia House is a 1920's country home perfectly converted into a B&B. This house has 5 rooms, each with a private bath. Room values are very good. You are made to feel at home from the moment you step inside. Everything was spotless. The property has a garden and koi pond where guests can relax as if they were in their own backyard. Snacks, refreshments, and wine were complimentary in the afternoons and evenings. In the morning with the other guests we had the most delightful 2 course breakfast prepared by the owner himself. Fresh pinnapple with blackberries and pasteries for the 1st course, and the most delicious fresh strawberry country-style pancakes with a poached eggs and ham for the 2nd course. i highly recommend this gem in Fredericksburg, TX.
5 on May 05, 2008
After some big hotels in huge towns the change to bed and breakfast Magnolia was just my wife and I needed as much. The venue was first class, calm neighbourhood, first class owners. The breakfast was beyond our expectations. The owners were helpful with giving ideas where to go for visiting, shopping and restaurants. I one want to go to Fredericksburg, the place to be is Magnolia. We surely will recommend to our friends if the go and visit Texas.

We loved our trip to the Texas Hill Country, which was highlighted by our stay at Magnolia House. We had room to spread out in our own private suite, but also found the common areas of the house to be charming and a good place to relax and unwind after a day of sightseeing. The breakfast was among the best we've ever had at a B 'n B! Lisa & Claude are great innkeepers -- They pay attention to the details and made our stay the highlight of our visit to Texas.

Outstanding, creative multi-course breakfasts, wonderful afternoon home-made cookies with coffee, tea, and wine service, complementary bottled water, etc. Innkeepers Lisa and Claude were wonderful, and Lisa even looked up directions for us when we got lost. Highly recommended...we will be back!

Once again my wife and I spent Easter in the Tx. Hill Country in Fredericksburg. For the past 4 years we have spent it at the Magnolia House. Claude and Lisa are wonderful hosts and make it point to see everything in their control goes right. The breakfasts are wonderful and the mid-day cookies are spectacular. They always graciously allow me to park my bicycle in their garage between rides, so it is safe from the weather. We are already planning on next Easter. Al & Kathy T. Carrollton, Tx.

Magnolia House sets the standard for an authentic Bed and Breakfast. The rooms and furniture were comfortable and provided a great place to share time with old friends. The gormet breakfasts and evening treats were tasty and served with simple elegance. And of course, Fredericksburg, TX is a great tourist town! We could have spent many more days exploring its shops and eateries.

My husband and I decided to do a last minute getaway. We looked at the Fredericksburg Chamber of Commerce website and found Magnolia House and called the B&B directly. Our hosts, Lisa & Claude, were very gracious. The attention they give to details to make this feel like a home-away-from-home was the best we have experienced ever at any B&B. The breakfast was so delicious that I had to buy their cookbook. We would definitely recommend Magnolia House to friends and family and we hope we have the opportunity to return.

My husband and I stayed at the Magnolia House in Dec. and I highly recommend this B&B to anyone wanting to stay in the Fredericksburg TX area. We stayed in the Bluebonnet Suite, which was wonderful, but we were also able to tour most of the other rooms. Claude and Lisa Saunders are truly inkeepers extraordinaire. The attention to detail in each and every room is incredible. While we were there the Inn was decorated for the holidays, and even the bathrooms had holiday decor! Our room was totally charming, cozy, warm and extremely comfortable. The breakfast was absolutely incredible. No continental breakfast here, but the kind of breakfast that would be served in a fine restaurant. The homemade coffee cake, served warm, was to die for, as were the fresh fruit and the eggs. After two bites we knew we wanted to buy the Magnolia House cookbook, and have already made a few of the recipes at home. If you want a bed and breakfast in Fredericksburg TX, the Magnolia House is THE place to stay. You won't be disappointed by the lodging, and you will love the wonderful hospitality supplied by its hosts, Claude and Lisa Saunders. Five stars!!

My wife and I have stayed at the Magnolia House several times over the past ten years and we have never been disappointed. The owners are gracious hosts and the atmosphere is wonderful. This is the first time we stayed in the Bluebonnet Suite and it is now our favorite suite. Large, spacious and definitely worth the price (which is already reasonable). We will be back year after year.

Staying at the Magnolia House is as much a treat as visiting Fredericksburg. Perfect! Everything--the hosts,Claude and Lisa,the food, the setting, the wine in the garden in the evenings, the cookies--exceeded our expectations. We'll be back.

Once again we have been pampered and given a weekend of total relaxation. Claude and Lisa have one of the most wonderful places to stay in all of Fredericksburg. The gourmet breakfast continues to be the perfect way to start your day and sitting by the pond sipping wine and sampling freshly baked treats makes the perfect ending of the day. All of our needs are aticipated and provided for at Magnolia House. We look forward to another stay here.

We three women found this b&b on a lark, and luckily there was a room available for one night. The hosts were so friendly and the house was a dream. It provided the ideal experience.

This was our second atay at the Magnolia House. Claude & Lisa always give wonderful suggestions for dinner in the Fredricksburg area. The Magnolia House has a warm friendly atmosphere. We can not wait until our next stay at the Magnolia House.

Our trip to Fredericksburg in early February, 2007 was so special and it was made complete by our stay at The Magnolia House. Claude and Lisa Saunders are perfect hosts and their lovely home is comfortable and tastefully decorated. We can't say enough about Claude's delicious gourmet breakfasts; the table setting, presentation and the expertly prepared breakfasts were fabulous. The American Beauty Room was beautifully decorated and met all of our needs. We have stayed in several B&B establishments and this ranks at the top.
