We were passing through and only stayed one night at the Sweet Magnolia Inn. I would like to return and stay longer to enjoy more of this area. The inn is quite comfortable with large rooms and quality furnishings. Everything is clean. Our hostess was extremely friendly and helpful. Breakfast was large and delicious with excellent grits. I’ll look forward... More

I should not write a review because I don't want any more people to know about this place. Nonetheless, here it is. On Sunday afternoons the little in house jazz band plays nice music while you can enjoy home made fresh food and great sangria or other wine and beer. The food is always amazing!
