Wonderful Visit

5 on November 07, 2017

We really enjoyed our stay at Magnolia House. Everything there is first class – food, décor, toiletries, etc. – just as shown on their website. The breakfasts were delicious and with 2 courses you won’t be looking for lunch any time soon. We also enjoyed the cookies in the afternoon. Lisa and Claude are wonderful hosts and very helpful with recommendations for where to eat, wine tastings, museums, and other things to do in the area. We will definitely stay there again.

Innkeeper Response
Thank you for your review! We are so glad you enjoyed our breakfasts and recommendations for the area. We have lived in Fredericksburg over 13 years and love sharing our local knowledge with our guests.

Excellent Stay

5 on November 05, 2017

The Magnolia House is a great B&B! The rooms were lovely, there was plenty of communal space for my family to play games and sit outside. And the breakfast was amazing! There were also several very nice touches like places to store refrigerated items, snacks (cookies, brownies, teas, etc.), and games and DVDs available. I highly recommend them if you're planning on staying in the Fredericksburg area!

Innkeeper Response
It was a pleasure having you and your family stay with us. The Magnolia House is perfect for family/friend gatherings as we have lots of common areas (both indoors and outdoors) for everyone to gather. We appreciate your 5 star review!

Magnolia House is our home away from home

5 on September 04, 2017

The Magnolia House is a beautifully restored home that is simply charming. Claude and Lisa are fantastic hosts who have lived in Fredericksburg for many years. They offered us many recommendations for outings, dinners and events happening in the surrounding area during our stay. They are also wonderful cooks who prepared delicious two-course breakfasts for us each day. We are going to especially miss their signature morning juice and pastries. We look forward to our next visit and staying with them again.

Innkeeper Response
Thank you so much for your review. We are so happy that you had a wonderful weekend and you found our suggestions on things to do helpful. We love sharing this wonderful area and its treasures with our guests. We look forward to having you visit again soon!

Outstanding in every respect

5 on August 26, 2017

We travelled to Fredericksburg (from Australia) on the recommendation of our daughter who in turn had received a recommendation from US colleagues. It was a long way to come but in every respect the trip was worthwhile. Apart from the very comfortable physical facilities, Claude and Lisa were outstanding hosts - absolutely comfortable in the role which made us as guests feel welcome and comfortable (in marked contrast to an experience we had elsewhere in another state)! Claude and Lisa and Magnolia House are the gold standard for bed & breakfasts in the US.

Innkeeper Response
Thank you so much for your review and your compliments are much appreciated. We are so glad that you enjoyed your stay with us and your visit to the states.

Fredericksburg is one of our favorite get away spots. This was our first time at Magnolia House. We loved our suite. It was very cozy and comfortable. The hostess were very pleasant.

Wonderful weekend

4.8 on May 07, 2017

This beautiful home and the friendliness of the hosts made our weekend. Lisa and Claude greeted everyone like old friends, providing a history of the home, suggestions for activities, a beautiful comfortable room with lots of personal touches and great amenities, and a wonderful breakfast to start the day. Coffee next to the koi pond and on the front porch in the morning and a glass of wine in the evening was such a peaceful, relaxing experience. We thoroughly enjoyed interacting with other guests and hope there will be an opportunity for us to return in the future.

Innkeeper Response
