Fantastic in Fredericksburg

This was our 3rd time stay at Magnolia House. Lisa and Claude provide a comfortable and inviting place to stay. From the cookies and wine in the afternoon to Claude's great breakfasts... The entire stay is always fun and relaxing. You also get the opportunity to meet other travelers.


Heavenly stay at a historic Magnolia House

4.8 on March 30, 2016

Our stay in the Blue Bonnet suite at Magnolia House was outstanding. The breakfasts were Blue Ribbon winners. Everything was yummy and the presentation was gorgeous. The owners had the room filled with all the extras a guest might need or would like to have. The fridge was filled with all kinds of beverages and the linens were ultra soft. The owners were very friendly and helpful giving us ideas and suggestions on what to do in town. One way to tell if a B&B is outstanding is how many times a guest returns. We met a couple during our stay that it was their 11 time at the Magnolia House. That says it all. Bill and Bonnie want to be return visitors too.

We had a memorable weekend getaway. The Magnolia House was comfy and cozy. We didn't want for anything...they have thought of everything! They even waited up for us when we had an unexpected arrival delay. We will be back.

Wonderful atmosphere, very delicious food, amazing host and hostess! I made this reservation thinking I was getting a room at another bed and breakfast. Turned out to be the best mistake I ever made. Can't wait to stay there again this time longer.


Best B&B

5 on December 18, 2015

This was our third stay at Magnolia House and it was just as good as the first two. Claude and Lisa have put together a great B&B that sets the standard for all others. Every detail is thought of, the full breakfast is always unique and outstanding and the hospitality is truly second to none. Claude and Lisa are now on our christmas card list, and we are already planning our next visit.


Wonderful stay at the Fredericksburg, Magnolia House

What stood about about our stay at the Magnolia House, was the feeling that you were staying in a friend's home. The hospitality of Lisa and Claude was warm and friendly, not forced. The rooms were lovely, and the grounds were tranquil. We thoroughly enjoyed out stay, and will be back again some day.


A perfect stay

5 on November 24, 2015

Even though my husband and I were only able to spend one day and night at Magnolia House, we thoroughly enjoyed every minute. Our suite was wonderful! It was cozy, comfortable and immaculate and contained all the amenities we might need. It was one of the most relaxing evenings we have ever spent away from home. The breakfast was delicious and the setting perfect for lively conversation with the other guests. The Innkeepers, Claude and Lisa, were so kind and helpful. Claude gave us some great suggestions and directions for driving back to Dallas. Consequently we saw some lovely countryside and avoided the dreaded highway construction. We are looking forward to staying at Magnolia House again next year.


Like staying with family (that you like!!)

The minute you meet Claude and Lisa you feel as if you have know them forever. A completely delightful experience. Our room was quite large and very comfortable. Breakfast was delicious.


Wow! Great B & B!!!

5 on November 02, 2015

Great B & B experience. The owners Claude and Lisa are the most gracious host and hostess. Together they have created a most warm and welcoming atmosphere. There is perfection in every detail. The breakfast is wonderful and we love the way they describe what has been prepared for the morning meal. Wi-Fi reception is excellent, throughout the common lounging areas, including in our room. Speaking of rooms, we stayed in the Peach Blossom room. We found it to be very comfortable, and more important: very clean. The sheets are comfy, as was the bed. Good selection of TV stations. Upon booking, we were told that this room has an adjacent unattached bathroom, but we found it to be very private, as it had an exterior lock/key that matched our room key. Nobody else could use it and we were able to safely leave our medicine and toiletries there. Besides, it was not down the hall, but just directly outside of the Peach Blossom room. The TV in the room had a very good viewing selection, but we didn't watch much, there's SO MUCH to do in Fredericksburg. A bonus: daily homemade cookies, fruit, and snacks in the common area. Complimentary red and white wine, sodas, and water there as well. No refrigerators in the rooms, but even better: a large one in the main area for your use. The Magnolia House is what a B & B experience should be. They set a high bar. Weather permitting the patio off the morning room is a perfect relaxation moment. The sounds of the waterfall into the well-stocked Koi pond should not be missed. The morning room is the ideal place to start your day with a delicious cup of coffee.


Outstanding

I have wanted to stay at a B&B in Fredericksburg for years! This year my Fiancé surprised me for my 35th birthday on the 4th of July. He did his homework and found the best B&B in the area. The 2-course prepared breakfasts are AH-mazing and should never be missed. Please visit Claude and Lisa at the Magnolia House, you won't be disappointed!
