The Magnolia Plantation
Bed & Breakfast Inn

Gainesville, Florida

Magnolia Plantation Bed and Breakfast Inn is an 1885 French Second Empire Victorian home in Gainesville, Florida.

Joe and Cindy Montalto purchased the 5400 square foot home in 1990 and began the restoration process. The house had its original floor plan when Joe and Cindy purchased it and they decided that it was very important to retain the integrity of the house as much as possible.

Gainesville is less than half-hour drive of many antique shops, clear water springs museums, bike trails and of course is the home of the University of Florida and the 1996 National Champion Florida Gators.

It truly is a family affair. Joe's father, a Landscape Architect, designed the gardens, pond and waterfalls. Cindy's mother lives in the carriage house and helps Cindy with the inn. Joe and Cindy also live on the third floor of the house so someone will always be around to see to your needs.

All the woodwork inside the home is original.

If you enjoy seeing the way people would have used their home in the 1800's you will enjoy visiting the Magnolia Plantation.

You should find yourself feeling very much at home shortly after your arrival because of the attention to detail. There is a stocked refrigerator with complimentary beverages and baskets of fruit and snacks. There is even a "boo boo sick" drawer filled with the items you may find you have left at home or may need to go to the drug store for.

We have five beautiful rooms and two out-buildings to choose from.

The Magnolia Plantation Cottages are decorated and furnished in the Country-, Craftsman- and Colonial-style. They provide more space and privacy for our guests. Most include a Jacuzzi tub and fireplace. All kitchens are equipped with cooking utensils and are-stocked with the basics.

Complementary snacks and beverages are available throughout the day.
