Magnolia House Vacation Rental

Updated: 2020-07-09 01:00:30 UTC

Chip and Jo’s vision for Magnolia House, Carriage House, and Hillcrest Estate was that they would be the perfect, quiet place for out-of-town guests to stay after visiting Magnolia Market at the Silos.


The Magnolia House was discovered by Chip and Joanna after showing it to a client in search of a house for Fixer Upper. When the couple didn’t choose it, Joanna pitched the idea of a bed and breakfast to Chip – and he, always willing to take on a new challenge, agreed it was a great idea. They purchased it and began construction immediately. And if the Magnolia House looks familiar, it might be because Joanna designed it to replicate their farmhouse, so that visitors would always feel right at home.

The maximum occupancy of the Magnolia House is eight.


The Magnolia House also features a full kitchen with updated appliances and all the comforts of home as far as flatware, glassware, dinnerware and small appliances. For your convenience, a laundry room with washer and dryer, laundry detergent, and fabric softener is on the backside of the kitchen. A full coffee bar nook is a fun addition to the top floor, and features a small eat-in area and a view of the street - the perfect place to enjoy your morning cup of coffee.


The family room downstairs has plenty of space for your friends and family to gather together to relax and catch up before you head out to experience Waco and McGregor. Or, for those up early before the rest of the house, enjoy having quiet time on one of the home’s beautiful wrap-around porches, or in the reading nook off of the family room.


This property shares a backyard with another Magnolia vacation rental, which was the original property’s guest quarters.
