Perfect Birthday Getaway

4.8 on May 12, 2014

My husband and I stayed for 2 days in the Bluebonnet room with the Romance package. We enjoyed the wonderful room with the king size bed and the breakfasts were phenomenal. We loved getting up in the mornings and walking around the town. Cindy was fabulous! We didn't want for anything. We enjoyed fresh strawberries dipped in chocolate and champagne after a delicious dinner at Derbies the first night. Then, breakfast in bed the morning we were leaving. We swung on the front porch swing and enjoyed the manicured lawn & flowers. Truly a relaxing and enjoyable experience. I recommend it to all!

Our Babymoon

5 on September 26, 2012

My husband and I were looking for a relaxing place to getaway and enjoy a 'Babymoon' before the birth of our first child. We saw a special on Living Social for this Bed & Breakfast that included chocolate covered strawberries and sparkling cider in the evening and breakfast served in bed the next day, I just couldn't resist :) We stayed in the Library Room which we loved. The bed was super comfortable and we enjoyed the view from the large windows facing the backyard. Breakfast was delicious, you could tell a lot of thought and work went into each dish. Cindy, the innkeeper was very friendly and offered great suggestions on activities and restuarants to visit. One of our favorites was to make reservations at Sabor A Pasion, where Chef Simon cooked us an elaborate 3 course meal that I'm still drooling about. Needless to say, we had a wonderful, relaxing time!

Perfect Getaway

5 on June 07, 2012

My mom and I recently spent two nights at the Magnolia Street Inn. The house was amazing and filled with so much history, and Cindy was a wonderful host! The rooms were immaculate and breakfast each morning was wonderful. We ended up being the only guests there that weekend, so we had plenty of time to chat with Cindy and watch movies in the downstairs parlor in our bath robes. We'd love to go back again someday, and bring our friends with us! Thanks, Cindy!

Weekend Getaway

5 on April 29, 2012

I recently purchased a deal from in order to get away for the weekend with my husband. We were a little hesitant not knowing the area, but wanted a quiet place to stay. Magnolia Street Inn was perfect. It met our expectation and then some. The breakfast both days were amazing. The room we stayed in was beautiful and the bed was just as comfortable as our bed at home. As for the couple who commented about getting scolded for going in the wrong door, it is true there is no clear entry (the back is beautifully landscaped), but a quick phone call confirmed the use of the front door. We had a great time walking the downtown area and visiting the local winery's suggested by Cindy. Thanks for a great get away.

One of the best!

This was truly a great B&B! A must if you are a B&B fan. We arrived and were treated with the utmost kindness and hospitality we have not had in a long time. The Library was perfect and a turn down service was a pluse. Cindy provided chocolate strawberries, great advise on the town and wonderful conversation. Cindy makes excellent breakfasts which made us stay at the table wanting more. The house is beautiful and took us back in time. Thank you Cindy for a great stay. Definitely a memorable weekend.

BEAUTIFUL House, Ok Service

3.8 on April 11, 2012

The house is BEAUTIFUL and very well kept. The breakfast was delicious. The price was reasonable. The Innkeeper was less than personable, however. There was no clear path from the parking lot to the front door, so we used the back door and she scolded us for doing so. Also, she told us to be SURE and be down at 9:00 the next morning for breakfast as that is when it would promptly be served. We were there at 8:55 and breakfast was not served until 9:15. Only 15 minutes late, yes, but she was adamant about us being there on time. And we were. But breakfast was not. Immediately after breakfast we went to our room to gather our stuff (we had to get on the road). She had asked us earlier to leave our keys on the desk/nightstand in our room. We did so. So we came downstairs to head out and she was talking to another guest. We wanted to give her compliments on the breakfast and so we stood there for a minute while she finished up her conversation and then told her "You did such a good job on that breakfast casserole! It was delicious! We very much enjoyed it. Thank you!" To which her reply was "Oh, you're welcome! Now did yall leave your keys in your bedroom? You made sure and did that, right? You wouldn't believe how many times people take their keys with them!" It just seemed like she completely blew our compliment off and all she cared about was whether or not we had left our keys. Perhaps she was just having a bad couple of days, or maybe we just caught her at a bad moment, but I just felt like she could have been a little more friendly. Would we stay here again? Hmmm.....I don't know if our experience was bad enough to say that we never would. But I definitely wouldn't be opposed to trying somewhere else.

Best B&B We've Been too!

The house was lovely, warm and inviting (and absolutely spotless), but it was Cindy, the Inn Keeper, that made our stay so memorable. Her hospitality, delicious breakfast and personal attention to details, may have spoiled us for other B&B's!

Awesome place
