Sugar Magnolia Bed & Breakfast
Ranked #2 of 21 Atlanta B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 9 April 2011

When we chose to stay at Sugar Magnolia for our 3-night visit to Atlanta, little did we know that we would leave with such wonderful memories!

Our room, the Royal Suite, had a comfy king bed, large sitting area, large bathroom, and a beautiful balcony off the front. Breakfasts each morning, served in the dining room downstairs, were delicious. And our hosts, Debi and Jim, could not have been more congenial.

We stayed at Sugar Magnolia for 2 nights in the Royal Suite. The room was huge and the large bathroom was a definite plus! Double sink, large shower, and double whirlpool tub. The hosts were welcoming let us use their computer to print tickets off to an area attraction. The breakfast was tasty-- basic, sort of like what you might make for yourself on a saturday morning-- the first morning we had a crossiant with egg and bacon and a bowl of fresh fruit, the next a had a waffle with berries. However there was cereal available every morning and coffee, tea, juice and milk. An added bonus was that were were soft drinks, water, beer and single servings of Kurig (coofee, tea, hot cocoa, cider), available complimentary throughout the day. The house was very conv. to many attractions and there is a MARTA stop close by. We drove everywhere and were never in the car long. One thing that is good to know up front is that you cannot lock the door to your room from the outside. We felt comfortable with this, but it was unexpected. The house is really lovely and a lot of care has been taken in restoring the home.

Our stay at the Sugar Magnolia was very memorable. We stayed in the Cottage suite behind the main house. First off - the actual space feels very spacious and is flooded with natural light. It was lovely to recline on the daybed in the living room and stare up at the swaying tree branches or big bright moon - such a treat!

The little staircase is very stable and climbing up and down it sort of reminded me of a favorite tree-house from childhood. The loft bed was tucked in a little nook with it's very own skylight. It made sleeping romantic and cozy - like being in a warm little cove away from the world. I woke up in the morning to the sounds of songbirds and sunlight. I cannot express how lovely and relaxing it really was.

The two-person tub was the highlight of the cottage. It too has it's own separate skylight over the tub. Soaking in the huge tub filled with hot water and fluffy bubbles staring up at the night sky with soft music (from my laptop) playing in the background melted away every stress from the busy tourist and traffic filled day. I am going to have to re-create this setup one day when I buy my own house. It is a must have for me now! :)

Josie lives in the house connected to the cottage suite. She is the mother of Debbie who is one of the owner's of the Sugar Magnolia. Josie is the sweetest soul I've ever encountered. I was so refreshed by her bubbly, youthful spirit and instantly felt like a treasured friend. She showed me her hat collection and her classic car - also named Josie.

Debbie was very helpful and chatted with us and two other guests over breakfast the first morning. She was always considerate of our privacy and was very willing to accommodate our vegetarian breakfast requests. We had a delicious broccoli, cheese, and onion quiche with pink grapefruit in the main house's dining room the first morning and waffles and berries in the cottage the second.

I'm sorry I didn't get to spend any time with her husband Jim - he seemed to be bustling with activity and we didn't encounter him much but every time we did he was super friendly.

Tuffy their adorable little black curly haired dog really made the stay perfect for my dog-adoring husband. It made us feel like we were at home to have him greet us each time we stopped by the main house and made us miss our puppies a little less. It is good to have a daily tail-wag thrown our way! :)

The house is really more beautiful than the pictures can convey. My husband and I very much enjoyed our stay in the Sugar Magnolia cottage.

** In the cottage there are two little booklets filled with entries from past guests dating back to 2007. Reading through them made my heart melt to see how many guests have loved their experiences in the same place I was taking refuge. It made me feel connected to a whole network of rest-seeking travelers and gave me a better perspective on the bed and breakfast experience. If you're staying here is it a must to flip through and especially to leave your own entry! :)

Sugar Magnolia is cozy, clean and a safe haven in Atlanta. Debi and Jim are gracious and hospitable with their home and make you feel like part of the family. I highly recommend this B&B...plus their breakfasts are delicious!

We were in Atlanta for one night to attend a concert and decided to try out a B&B. It was first for both of us.

The stay was very pleasant. The home was charming and very well maintained. The room (The Royal Suite) was beautiful and very clean. Really wish we had been able to stay another night. It was a restful stay. The hosts were very nice and we had some good conversation with the other guests over a nice breakfast, which was a quiche and some fresh fruit. We'll be back the next time we're in the area.

Great Location, very gracious and accomodating hosts, very nice breakfast each morning. Beautiful, clean room ( Blue Room- largest bathroom I have ever seen) and bed slept very well. Wonderful porches to sit and rock awhile, close to downtownn Atlanta. My husband enjoyed the southern hospitality very much and we will return. A+ !

Sugar Magnolia is a beautifully appointed classic Queen Anne Victorian home that has a surprisingly relaxed ambiance. It is in a historic area where excellent restaurants, lovely parks and shopping are within a short walk. Debi Starnes and Jim Emshoff are an erudite artistic couple who make guests feel at home (and serve an excellent breakfast). Linda and I came to get to know the city of Atlanta and see the Salvador Dali exhibit at the nearby High Art Museum. This home is obviously a passion for them, and was a paradise for Linda and me!
