Southern Living, Fall

“For guests, the blessings are inside the well-appointed inn. Heart-pine floors, beaded-board walls, and five guest rooms fill the friendly Victorian structure with an inviting front porch. Modern amenities such as televisions, CD players, and a guest fridge complement the beautiful two-story house.”

Southern Breeze Spring

“The B&B has five guestrooms, each showcasing its own unique décor. The back door is always open, and the floors don’t squeak, so don’t worry about coming in at a late hour. There’s an entertainment room for guest that has every amenity available, but chances are you will want to venture outdoors, possibly book a flight on a historic by-plane as you watch the world underneath fly by, or float on a hot air balloon, toasting your love.”

Editorial Pick for the best of the coast Sweet Dreams-Golden Slumbers section of the 2004 Southern Breeze Travel Magazine “Doesn’t just the name entice you to visit? The Hamlet of Magnolia Springs, Alabama is one of the last postal water routes in America, and its small-town charm extends to owner David Worthington’s transformation of this 19th-century plantation home into an elegant bed and breakfast”

“Just off Highway 98 between Gulf Shores and Point Clear, Alabama is the small town of Magnolia Springs. This 100-year-old community is truly a hidden treasure. At the end of Oak Street, appropriately named for its canopy of oaks that engulf you as you enter, is one of the towns most valuable jewels. The Magnolia Springs Bed & Breakfast awaits those seeking seclusion and Southern grace.”

“We walked down Oak Street, canopied by oaks and blooming Magnolias, into town for a neighborhood tour. Nestled amongst the trees is David’s pride and joy, the bed and breakfast he has spent his life’s work lovingly restoring to its original splendor.”

Visitors to the Magnolia Springs Bed and Breakfast know that feeling. You will, too. Magnolia Springs combines small town Southern charm with an ideal location for exploring the Alabama Gulf Coast.”

Guest Testimonials


The Magnolia Springs Bed and Breakfast, a Southern Alabama Gulf Coast B&B is Located minutes from the white sand beaches and pristine waters of Gulf Shores. The Bed and Breakfast represents a true scene of Southern Living! I look forward to many a return trip to “the Springs” and becoming “totally spoiled” by the heavenly experience!

Caughran

“Thanks you for sharing your lives with us! A much needed “get-away” for us became a magnificent experience. You definitely have a heart for what you do and we felt “right at home” from the time we walked in the door. You have a lot to share with others, and you do a fantastic job. Thanks for making our stay so pleasant!”

Huffman

“We surely did enjoy our all-too short stay with you in the best of all B&B’s. Everything was so special – the old “homestead ambience”, the great breakfast and soaking up the village charm of Magnolia Springs. (I want to live here in my next life) We’ve stayed in a number of very nice B&B’s and the hosts are the key ingredient to a successful B&B. You two are the perfect host….congenial, capable, talented and good natured. We will be back hopefully soon. Thanks you.”

“Words cannot convey how perfect this “sisters retreat” was for us. We leave your lovely home with souls re-nourished and sprits soaring. We have agreed that this is a “must repeat” weekend so expect to see us at least annually. We came expecting to find rest and laughter and I’m glad to report we did! But even better, we left with having made new friends. Thanks you so very much!”
