We stayed with Nancy and Max for two nights during our weekend visit to Nashville from Chicago. My husband I rented the Van Gogh room and found it to be very authentic, clean, and cozy. We enjoyed hiking at the Brown County State Park, visited a winery, and did a little shopping. The town's attractions are within walking distance from...

Four families gather once per year. For 2017 we picked Franklin, Tennessee and Magnolia House. The B&B was the perfect venue for us - four rooms and a very large gathering area for post dinner discussion, laughter and memories of almost 30 years of such trips. Robbie was a wonderful hostess. Lots of terrific restaurants withing a walk of less...

If you love Southern charm and ambiance, gourmet breakfasts, and warm and friendly hospitality, this is the B & B for you. Nestled in one of the most historical places in the US, the Magnolia House has it all. It is within easy walking distance from downtown Franklin, a city that has retained its 19th century beauty and charm. Dont...

The breakfast is delicious and fresh orange juice in frost crystal glasses served on a well adorned table which included glass knife rests. We gathered together at the dining table with strangers to feel like the hosts and other guests were friends at the end of the meal. Robby is a wonderful host and her husband is entertaining and humorous...

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.

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!!
