What about children?

Magnolia Manor is basically a museum that you can actually spend the night in. Small children usually find their stay filled with "Don't touch that!", "Don't run!" or "Put that down!" remarks from Mom and Dad. Not much fun for them or Mom and Dad! We are very concerned for your child's safety! The staircase is very high and dangerous and tempting to young ones to climb "unencumbered" by an adult. We recommend you leave the children with the babysitter so you can relax and enjoy your stay. Infants and young adults are welcome. Newborn children and that age16 and up will be fine for overnight visits. During day tours or luncheons we allow all ages in to visit if accompanied by parent.

What about my pet?

Sorry. No pets allowed. Magnolia Manor already has a "man of the house" by the name of Rhett Butler. This little Yorkie is ruler of the entire manor. So to prevent a scuffle, or "marking or territory" please leave your pet at home, or make kennel arrangements. Seeing Eye dogs and handicap assistance animals are welcome and we will make special arrangements to make sure those animals are very comfortable as well.

Is Magnolia Manor Haunted?

That depends on who you ask! Inn Keeper Elaine Cox has seen and heard things that cannot be explained away easily! Other family members tell stories of "doors closing" and/or "footsteps" when no one else is in the house and other odd occurrences. We've had several guests ask us that question after "noises" kept them up all night. We apologize if you were one of them! The Tennessee Ghost Hunters and The Memphis-Mid South Ghost Hunters  (Formerly The Ghost Stalkers of West Tennessee) have done investigations and both groups gathered photographic evidence as well as audio recordings at Magnolia Manor! Magnolia Manor is even listed in the "Haunted Inns of the Southeast" book. Although most often our guests never see or hear anything unusual, we leave it up to YOU to decide if there are ghosts at Magnolia Manor. You're more than welcome to come investigate. However we do NOT allow séances or the use of  Ouija boards in the house. If Magnolia Manor is haunted, we certainly don't want to make the ghost(s) angry or invite any others into the house!
