Five guest rooms and suites, each with private bath, are uniquely decorated with antique furnishings and appointed with your comfort in mind. The two suites boast fireplaces and private entrances. Each lodging accommodation is fully air-conditioned and heated and has a color television and VCR with HBO and other premium channels and High Speed WIreless Internet. Magnolia House Bed and Breakfast soaps, shampoos, and terry robes are lovingly provided.

Every morning, guests convene in the dining room to enjoy a signature breakfast, beginning with fresh fruit, homemade muffins, and juice. The menu changes daily and includes a combination of waffles, French toast, or crêpes plus bacon, sausage, and an egg entree. Sweet rolls and the down-home decadence of biscuits and gravy are often on the menu. Everything is prepared from scratch and served on antique china and silver.

The tradition of Magnolia House began in 1923, when the stately home was designed and built by Edward Stein, local architect, banker, and designer of the Gillespie County Courthouse, located in downtown Fredericksburg. Each piece of lumber was personally selected by Mr. Stein, making Magnolia House one of the most carefully constructed houses in this historic area.

Today, Magnolia House has been designated by the Texas Historical Commission for The Recorded Texas Historic Landmark.

Restored in 1991, every element of Magnolia House is in keeping with the grand interior and comfortable family lifestyle of the original living quarters. Guests are invited to relax on the patio, which surrounds the Koi pond and waterfall, or on the wicker-furnished porches. The kitchen has original antique glass cabinets, a working cistern in the butler's pantry, and built-in iceboxes with wooden doors. Thoughtful amenities such as fresh flowers, home-baked snacks, and complimentary beverages add to guests' pleasure.

The Magnolia House staff will be happy to suggest restaurants, special shopping areas, and local events to make your Fredericksburg stay extra-special.

The Admiral Nimitz Museum on Main Street features exhibits on World War II Pacific battles as well as restored rooms of the historic Nimitz Hotel.

LBJ State and National Park is 16 miles east of Fredericksburg, with guided bus tours of the ranchlands of the Johnson family.

Enchanted Rock, the second largest granite structure in North America, has a nearby park with miles of scenic hiking trails and many lovely picnic areas.

Local vineyards are a wonderful excursion, offering wine tasting, cellar tours, and the chance to buy fine Hill Country wines. Cycling, swimming, fishing, tennis, and golf are all within a few minutes of the Inn.

Come enjoy the comfortable elegance of Magnolia House Bed and Breakfast in Fredericksburg, Texas. This historic Fredericksburg home offers unsurpassed Southern hospitality in a peaceful Texas Hill Country setting.
