Rules of the House A review of Magnolia Mansion
Although the house is beautiful, the rules of the home are ridiculous.
No one may come up to your room, turn off the lights at every opportunity, do not put the air conditioner lower than 68, if a guest comes to the parlor, they must be ok'd by the owner. Given that no one under 21 is allowed, you would think adults would be allowed to have guests, especially for the word of mouth to get other business. You get three keys to open the gate to the property, the gate to the door, the front door and finally your room, all of which are locked at all times.
The complimentary parking is only three spaces (no trucks allowed). The parking closes at 10 so you must park on the street if you come in later than that. The continental breakfast consists of three kinds of cereal, some bagels, some fruit that is not replaced daily (by Sunday the bananas were brown and spotty) and a few sweets that looked like unwrapped Little Debbie snacks. The rooms were well decorated and nice (although there is no phone in the rooms and not all rooms have the high speed internet stated on the web-site). The owner was around a bit too much for us, but other guests seemed to like her being around every corner. When we checked out, the gentleman took our keys and checked the room before we could leave. There was no "thank you for coming", "please come again", etc. All he said was, "The room is fine, and you can go."
not for everyone. Magnolia Mansion is a historic romantic peaceful get a way and for those looking for this
kind of experience
