Perfect property for our family to stay for a wedding close by. Heaps of room and lots of entertainment for the grandchildren. Everyone was very happy with the facilities and Rosie is a very gracious and helpful host. It just capped off what was a stunning wedding.

Magnolia House Berry

Excellent Property

  • 5 of 5

Not enough words can describe Magnolia House.

The hospitality that Rosie provided the three families that stayed over the weekend, Rosie provided us with extra sheets and pillows and accommodated some late changes to our group.

The rooms were more then spacious and 9 kids that we had over 3 families had more then enough things to play with in the games room and land to play on and parents were able to relax.

The property is great credit to a loving family and we look to staying there again and recommending to others.
