Wonderful, spotless, comfortable, spacious, guest oriented, convenient, delicious breakfast! What else is there to say? Magnolia House is located on a main road in and out of the town of Franklin TN. For convenience, there is no place better. We parked, checked in and walked into town to shop and eat dinner at one of the many restaurants there. The...

Beautiful house, lovely room, own entrance, coffee always available. Everything is so tastefully and beautifully furnished and decorated and the owners are absolutely lovely. The breakfast was fabulous. Thank you! It was our wedding anniversary, we were over from the UK, we ate at the Cork and Cow and then returned to this lovely and comfortable room. Thank you!

We traveled to Franklin for a concert in the Theatre Downtown. We needed a place to stay within walking distance. I'm so happy that we found the Magnolia House B&B!! It is a lovely home with many antiques, but very homey and comfy as well. The walk to downtown was very easy and nice. The couple that owns the B&B...

This was by far the best B&B experience that we have ever had! The rooms were clean and beautifully furnished. The beds were really comfortable!!! There are three common areas upstairs that are all comfortable and inviting in their own way: a cozy living room; a large sun room, and a wonderful wrap around porch with a swing and lots...

Everything was wonderful at the Magnolia House. My hosts were very friendly and as a solo traveler I felt both welcomed and very safe. It's convenient to downtown (I walked) and to the Civil War sites. My room was lovely and comfortable (with a door to the porch). And the breakfasts were so delicious. It was a very enjoyable two...

Room was average - larger than a hotel. Room was tastefully decorated. Bed was small (double?) and on the hard side. Seem to have an electrical issue - lights, etc flicker. Rooms on second floor accessed by steep steps inside and outside. No backyard - it is parking lot. Nice large common area but the furnishing is a bit shabby....

I would like to thank you for choosing Magnolia House for your recent visit to Franklin, but am disappointed that you weren't completely satisfied and appreciate you bringing these areas of concern to our attention. Franklin is a bustling town and at certain times of the day it is busy. I will check into the mattress, but not sure which...

My best friend and I go away for a girls' weekend once a year. This year, we decided to stay closer to home and go to Franklin. We had a wonderful stay at Magnolia House B&B.

Thank you for choosing Magnolia House for your girl's weekend. It was a pleasure having you with us. I too discovered the wasps making a home while cleaning the porch and rockers. They no longer have their home there and I am soo thankful you did not get stung. Hopefully you will return to Franklin for a relaxing time. Robbie

Expected more from this highly rated B&B. Everything was OK but not super. I think we got off to a bad start because we arrived while the innkeeper was away. Although a nice note was left with the key, we weren't quite sure if we could have bottled water or soft drinks from the mini fridge in the TV room...
