My wife and I sought a B&B via the internet for our first trip to Lexington--and stumbled on a fountain of wonderful experiences. A very gracious and friendly couple, Tim and Jan (the innkeepers) welcomed us warmly yet efficiently, answering questions about local attractions, offering suggestions, and even making dinner reservations for us. Extra touches (such as a jar of...

We found the Magnolia House Inn to be very warm and inviting. Our room, the Garden Room, was cozy and very comfortable. In the evenings we relaxed in the parlor and read or checked our email using our laptop. Breakfast was great. Our hosts really made an effort to cater to our needs (food allergies) and prepared a fantastic table...

The black wrought-iron front gate is just wonky enough to let you know you are about to enter a magical space. And the English cottage garden filling every inch between the sidewalk and the house welcomes you with open arms. On the front porch are cozy outdoor couches and chairs, saying "Welcome home." That's how it is at Tim and...

The Magnolia House Inn in Lexington, Virginia is as sweet as its name -- a lovely old home, run by gracious Inn Keepers, on the main street of a wonderful historic little town. It is an extra bonus that restaurants, shops, several churches and the University of Washington and Lee are within walking distance. Our suite, The Equestrian, had a...

My wife and I recently spent a weekend at the Magnolia House Inn. Our stay was very comfortable and relaxing. The innkeepers, Tim and Jan Decker, are wonderful, gracious, conscientious hosts. They were always available if you had any questions or just wanted to talk. The Magnolia House is rich with history and conveniently located only a few blocks from...

The 1867 Magnolia House is lovely, clean well run and most comfortable. We stayed here for the second time on March 3, 2008. The breakfast was tasty. We will most certainly return. They are within walking distance of VMI and Washington Lee as well as scads of nice shops and dining. Highly recomend a visit. The Taggart Family

The 1868 Magnolia House exceeded our expectations. An attractive, well furnished home full of period touches, the Magnolia House is truly one of a kind. The historical significance is fascinating to think about, and we thoroughly enjoyed discussing the history with our hosts. Speaking of our hosts, Tim and Jan were wonderful! Everything we needed, they provided. They had thought...

This warm and well appointed B&B welcomed us on a diffcult journey from Tampa by way of Savannah after a family tragedy. The Magnolia Inn with its Victorian era ambiance and furnishings was just what we needed to get away from the road. We stayed in the luxurious Lexington Room and could not have been happier with the accomodations (fabulously...
