Welcome to the Magnolia House Inn in the urban waterfront village of Hampton, Va.

Enjoy this historic property, and its’ unique location, centrally located on the southeastern tip of the Virginia peninsula on the Chesapeake Bay . Perfect central Tidewater location for business travelers, honeymooners, & tourists, specializing in small, intimate weddings with an onsite Wedding Chapel.

While away from home, at this serene bed & breakfast, take advantage of the close proximity to the Historic Fort Monroe,  Newport News,  Colonial Williamsburg, Yorktown, Norfolk, and Virginia Beach. We are perfect for tourists,  business, convention center, and military travelers. Consider The Magnolia House for visiting family or friends in the area and visits to Hampton University &  Christopher Newport University.  The Inn is also conveniently close to the Woodlands and The Hamptons golf courses and Hampton’s boating piers.

During your stay at the Magnolia House, you will experience American history firsthand by living in a home that was constructed in the 1880’s for William Walker Scott, a harbor pilot and businessman. Under stately magnolia trees, this structure is a wonderful example of Queen Anne style Late Victorian architecture.

You will experience the attention to detail that makes this bed & breakfast special—from the comfortable furnishings to the richly restored interior finishes. The Magnolia House is warm and welcoming to all.

Listed on the National Register of Historic Places and the Virginia Landmarks Register, the Magnolia House is owned by your Innkeepers, Lankford & Joyce Blair who opened the property as an Inn in 2006.
