Both Andy and Denise are gourmet cooks and love to entertain. Their love of the water and everything in and around it makes the Inn a perfect combination for success. Andy is also a very talented jazz musician and loves to entertain impromptu, his passion and talent in the kitchen, makes your breakfast at The Sweet Magnolia extra special.

While driving through the small town on Greenville, Florida, you’d be surprised to come upon the beautiful Grace Manor located in the heart of town. The inn offers luxury, comfort, and small-town nostalgia. I truly enjoyed the beautiful millwork and detail that you don’t see everyday throughout the Inn. The formal dining room showcases many classical architectural features, such as the ceiling which is embellished with a diamond shaped pattern and bordered by jigsaw molding beneath the cornice. Guests are served a hearty and savory breakfast in this elegant setting. Southern charm and grace is evident in everything the innkeeper, Brenda Graham, chooses to endeavor in and the outside garden is the perfect place to sit and appreciate. Brenda creates stunning bottle lamps and lighted gift boxes, beaded bookmarks, chalkboard stemware, beaded service ware, flip flops and body lotion. Brenda also embroiders items such as baby burp cloths, kitchen towels, handbags, tote bags, pot holders, key holders, bottle aprons, throw pillows and crocheted scarves to name a few!

Gracious accommodations and genuine Southern Hospitality await your arrival at this charming Queen Anne Victorian Inn in Greenville Florida. Grace Manor Bed and Breakfast features an aesthetic blend of antique furnishings in each of its four double guest rooms. Each room is decorated with distinction, and all rooms come with modern amenities.

I also had the pleasure of staying at the 1872 John Denham House in Monticello, Florida and visiting many of the neighboring Inns in Monticello. The architecture and detail of these Inns are worth seeing. Southern hospitality is alive and well in the panhandle of Florida.
