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!

Lisa and I enjoyed our stay, as always at the Magnolia House. That is the only place we have stayed since we started visiting Fredricksburg.

Awesome Stay

My family and I had a great time at the Magnolia House. Claude and Lisa were very welcoming and made us feel comfortable. The house and bedrooms are very nicely decorated. The sheets were amazing - so soft. Breakfast was delicious too. I highly recommend it and will stay again.

Awesome Historic Stay

I knew we were in for a treat when I saw the historic marker on the house as we entered. I love staying in a place with a story, more than just a place with great reviews -- although Magnolia House had both! We stayed in the American Beauty room (we had our own bath in our room), King bed, and nice seating area. Lisa welcomed us, shared the history, and provided a tour of the house; Claude cooked a great two-course breakfast. Everything was very clean, snacks were provided, "anything" you could have forgotten was provided (including a brand new toothbrush) ... it is snuggled in a nice neighborhood just far enough away from the hustle and bustle of the main street, yet close. The dining and living areas were large and we didn't get to spend as much time as we would have liked. We also were there only one night but have already decided to go back for a much longer trip. We travel "a lot," and we loved this place.

Comfortable and friendly B&B

Comfortable B&B in a quiet location which is not too far from the Main street for shopping, dining and other activities. Very nice and friendly inn keepers. Breakfast are superb with different menu each day. Thanks for your hospitalities.

Great Week at the Magnolia House

My wife and I planned a short getaway to Fredricksberg and stayed at the Magnolia House. Claude and Lisa made our getaway a great experience! The house was wonderful, the hospitality was warm, the suggestions were right on. Breakfast was worth the visit alone. Stay at the Magnolia House, you wont regret it.

Best B&B in Fredericksburg

We had a wonderful, relaxing time. Magnolia House is beautiful and very well appointed. The food was delicious. A good time was had by all!

Best of both worlds

My husband and I were in Fredericksburg over the Easter week. Claude and Lisa were exceptional hosts. The Magnolia House is only a few blocks from the main street area but in a quiet neighborhood to afford rest and relaxation. There are several sitting areas inside and out to enjoy some quiet time. The two course breakfast was outstanding and the table conversation was enjoyable. This is one of the reasons my husband and I enjoy the bed and breakfast experience. Our room was lovely with a private bath and separate living area. Plenty of room to spread out and the entire house was extremely clean. We even had our own private entrance. Lisa and Claude thought of every possible need a traveler could need. We will definitely stay with them when we are in Fredericksburg again.
