Magnolia House Inn
Ranked #1 of 4 Hampton B&B and Inns
Reviewed 1 July 2014

This gem in Hampton,VA helped to make our staycation weekend to celebrate my boyfriends's birthday absolute perfection! Its situated conveniently near all of Hampton's most notable attractions and several wonderful restaurants are within walking distance to the B&B.
The innkeepers Lankford and Joyce were so accommodating and allowed us to want for nothing during our entire stay. We stayed two nights in the Ellington Suite and found it to be immuculately maintained and exceeded every one of our expectations.
Joyce, the chef, whips up the most wonderful breakfasts! Her croissant french toast were absolutely heavenly and her homemade turkey sausage was equally delicious! Her extra effort to satisfy our pork and red meat restrictions were greatly appreciated and did not go unnoticed.
In conclusion, this is the only place to stay when planning a trip to Hampton! You will not leave disappointed.

Kindly,
Saud Muhammad and Maria Hawkins

Room Tip: If possible, choose the Ellington Suite.

We stayed for 2 nights at this sweet, historic B&B in May, 2014. The hosts were gracious and helpful, the breakfasts were delicious and lovely. The location was perfect for driving to bayside restaurants, or for touring Williamsburg, Jamestown Settlement, and Yorktown.

Room Tip: The house is large and sits back from the main road in a very quiet section of town. Our room faced...

My fiance' and I traveled from Indiana to elope at The Magnolia House. We could not have chosen a more perfect home to begin our new life. From the beauty of it's namesake trees to classic architecture, the elegant decor, scented candles and classic jazz music being played, the Magnolia House is a delight for all the senses. The passion Miss Joyce and Langford have for their guests is unparalleled. Miss Joyce is a Renaissance woman, indeed, having a talent for anything she sets her mind to. Wonderful host, amazing cook, wise counselor for wedding plans and top rate concierge to all the nearby places to visit. However, In the midst of all our planning, we forgot to get a wedding cake.

On the day of or wedding, there was Miss Joyce in the dining area, frosting and DECORATING a homemade (not store-bought) cake! We we speechless. After our wedding came recommendations for photos at nearby historical Fort Monroe, with Miss Joyce guiding us to the best spots to take pictures.

Miss Joyce does more than just share her home with you, she makes you family. We truly felt blessed with all the attention and truly hated leaving. This was our first B&B experience and I must say that the bar has been set very high by Miss Joyce, Vera, Langford and the Magnolia House.

We loved the Magnolia House!! We booked our elopement wedding and three-day stay with Joyce, and were very pleased with everything. Lankford performed a wonderful ceremony, Joyce was helpful and sweet, and Vera served us delicious breakfasts each morning. We loved our room (The Haven) and when a slight problem arose, they quickly upgraded us to the also beautiful Ellington Suite. We enjoyed the sitting room, the nearby variety of restaurants, and all the personal touches that made our visit special. We can't wait to go back :-)

Room Tip: The Ellington Suite is the most private/separated from other guests.

The Magnolia Inn experience made my five year anniversary that much more special. Breakfast was superb and hospitality was wonderful. Our first time staying at a inn and the impression will be lasting for a life time.

Everything at the Magnolia House Inn was perfect - our room, the common rooms, the breakfasts (yum!) - but the best thing about Magnolia House is the innkeepers! You know the expression, "Come as a guest, leave as a friend?" I truly felt that at this inn, unlike anyplace else. Lankford and Joyce made us feel so at home - conversations were special! We would definitely return to Magnolia House when in that area again! It's a truly beautiful inn!
