“Great B & B on the Tallahasee-St. Marks Rail Trail”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 July 2014 via mobile

Friendly place with a small town atmosphere. Andy and Denise could not have been nicer and even served us low- country boil when we arrived. Don't miss a visit to the general store up the way or the San Marcos Appalachee historical site.

We spent 4 nights here arriving from the Smokey Mountains as the start of our trip West ultimately to New Orleans. We felt very much at home here. Andy, Denise and Lisa were superb hosts throughout our stay. The room was really comfortable and large with a jacuzzi bath and a separate shower, we were in a room at the back of the house and found it to be very quiet, even though on a couple of days they were full.
Breakfasts were cooked to order from a different selection offered each day were always delicious and very filling.
On Sunday afternoon we were treated to a musical treat as Andy and his mate along with one or two others provided a live music session in the dining room. It was a really enjoyable few hours with dinner and drinks, at very reasonable prices. Apparently it is a must do thing in St Marks on a Sunday afternoon, and was highly recommended to us by several city residents that we met while there. It runs from 3-7pm (approx)
The accommodation is centrally located to enjoy the small harbour with a few bars and restaurants and is ideally located to explore some of the very best state parks that Florida has to offer. Andy is very knowledgeable about the area and gave us some very good tips on must see destinations for the day. They have cycles for guests use which is useful as it is easy flat cycling country all around.

Pleasant overnight stop on our way down the coast. Clean roomy attractive comfortable room and bath. Really Great breakfast prepared to order by our host. We really felt at home and welcome. Had fruit & cheese & wine (if desired) in the room for our arrival. T he owners are very nice and friendly. Just sorry we weren't there on the right day for the jazz session! We will stay again when back thru the area!

I was in St. Marks for a groundbreaking ceremony for the cleanup of their old refinery, and this was the closest place to stay. Fortunately, I also discovered a great place to come back with my family. When I checked in, the owners were unexpectedly out of town because of a storm, Lisa, their employee, did a great job showing me around and also cooked a delightful dinner. She also loaned me a bike (free to use for guests at the Sweet Magnolia). The Inn is very close to the St. Marks / Tallahassee bike trail so I was also able to ride and get some exercise. I slept wonderfully that evening on a comfortable bed and breakfast in the morning was also friendly and tasty.

We spent the first night of our Panhandle road trip at this delightful B&B. it was just perfect. The owners Andy and Denise are incredible hosts, and we immediately felt at home.
We were lucky enough to be there on a Sunday afternoon when they have a jazz session. What an absolute bonus ! Many of the local residents come along to enjoy the show. Andy and his mate Don are talented musicians and certainly know how to entertain. It really was a lot of fun.
Once we'd checked in and freshened up we were invited to enjoy the entertainment with complementary wine and cheese plate. Later on Denise made us a lovely meal and very kindly catered to my vegetarian requirements.
All five guest rooms are beautiful. We stayed in the Shangrila suite, with four poster bed and jacuzzi bath, but would have been happy in any room. The photos on the net do not do the house justice, it's very very pretty, quaint and full of charm and character.
In the morning Andy made us the most amazing breakfast, again catering to my vegetarian needs.
Nothing was too much trouble.
Outstanding hosts, outstanding house, we honestly didn't want to leave. Will definitely return if we ever get back to the Panhandle, but next time plan to stay here longer.

Room Tip: All rooms are lovely

A bit south of Tallahassee, is the little town of St. Mark, and the Sweet Magnolia Inn. We took the scenic Route of 98 across the Pan Handle of Florida, after visiting friends in Alabama. The Inn resembles the Old South with its abundant foliage, and lush landscape. But, the inside is big city modern with ceramic floors, jacuzzis and well appointed bedrooms. We will definitely be back! Music lovers and musicians gather on weekends for jam sessions. What a treat!
