The Hospitality Room of our Virginia inn offers complimentary snacks (including Jan's homemade cookies!) and cold drinks as well as individually brewed tea and hot chocolate; individually brewed coffee available at nominal cost at any hour. Beyond the Hospitality Room, step onto the second-level balcony overlooking the garden and furnished with outdoor seating and a market umbrella. The balcony is a wonderful place to relax and unwind during a weekend getaway at Virginia’s 1868 Magnolia House Inn.

In the morning, a complimentary pot of coffee in the Dining Room is provided for early risers; take a mug by the fire in the Parlor in colder months or, in warmer weather, out on one of the porches, or back to your room.

At breakfast time, gather with other guests in the Dining Room for a meal served with china, crystal and silver, in keeping with the old-time gracious ambiance of the house. Relax, sharing conversation with new friends from all over the country and perhaps from around the world.

Then depart for the day to explore the streets of historic Lexington. You'll find that Lexington appears much the same today as when Thomas ("Stonewall") Jackson, in an 1851 letter to his sister Laura, wrote, "Of all the places which have come under my observation in the United States, this little village is the most beautiful." Visit the historic sites and academic campuses, shop for antiques, local art, and boutique clothing, and dine at your choice of more than a dozen restaurants--all within walking distance! Stop in at the Visitors Center for great ideas on trips to many interesting nearby attractions beyond Lexington itself. Then return in the evening to the welcoming peace of your home away from home--1868 Magnolia House Inn.

Free high-speed wireless Internet signal (WiFi) is available throughout the Inn.

To insure the peaceful atmosphere of the Inn, and the opportunity for reading, personal reflection and enjoying relationships, we do not offer television.
