The cabin is amazing, with all the amenities you'd like or just a fireplace and bottle of wine. Joni and I enjoyed relaxing at night and venturing out for hikes and the other features Big Canoe and surrounding communities offered. The cabin had everything we needed. Love the stay....

Great location. We had a wonderful time. It is walking distance to the main restaurants. We also had a great time walking through the parks and the Duck Pond area. We loved the area and highly recommend staying at The Magnolia Plantation with its great flavor of history.

We enjoyed the bed and breakfast very much, especially the breakfast. The rooms were well appointed, very clean. The showers could be problematic for some, but that's part of the experience. The grounds were beautiful.

The rooms are cozy and quiet; the garden is beautiful; the breakfast is delicious. Most importantly, however, Joe and Cindy make staying at the Magnolia Plantation a special treat.

Staying at Joe & Cindy's B&B is a quiet, comfortable retreat from everyday life. They are interesting people who love to share their historical home with others. The garden setting is enjoyable, and the room in which we stayed (Heather) was very comfortable, including a gas fireplace and a large, tiled shower. Breakfast was delicious!
