We stayed at the Magnolia Plantation for a short get-away weekend in Gainesville. Joe and Cindy made us feel right at home. It is obvious that they love what they do and they go the extra effort to make everyone feel like part of the family. Cindy hand-irons all the bed linens and that feels soooo luxurious at the end of a day of hiking at Paynes Prairie. We stayed in the Gardenia room which has a wonderful, light-filled reading nook and a working fireplace. Early evening wine and snacks provide a nice way to relax before going out to dinner. The Inn is within walking distance to some outstanding restaurants in downtown Gainesville. Breakfast was delicious and it was so nice to sit around the table and talk with Joe about as he shared stories with us about "Gator Nation".
