We selected the Magnolia Springs B&B for a 2 night stop off on our drive from Florida to New Orleans hoping for somewhere small and personal, offering us a real insight into the area and some true Southern charm. We weren't disappointed.
Upon arrival and meeting the proprietor David, we were welcomed with open arms and given the opportunity of having a tour of the house. It has been renovated sympathetically, and is clearly well loved, with cosy common areas and our bedroom was very comfortable. Lots of attention to detail has been paid to the amenities; there's a fully stocked fridge, plenty to read in the den, freshly baked cookies, and delicious home cooked breakfasts.
There's a superb restaurant called Jesse's that's only 2 minutes walk away down a pretty oak lined avenue, and plenty to see and do in the surrounding area. We got excellent suggestions for our excursions from David and despite some bad weather whilst we were there, we weren't at a loss for anything to do.
In short, the Magnolia Springs B&B is a beautiful house for a comfortable stay, and the welcome and hospitality extended from David and Eric is second to none. We had a great time, and we glad we were there at the right time to see the all singing, all dancing Christmas Tree!
