Seen on Ghost Adventures, Ghost Brothers, Paranormal Caught on Camera, and Texas Monthly. We are NOT your normal Bed and Breakfast. You and 3 companions get the ENTIRE 2800 sq ft second floor all to yourself plus a continental breakfast. It includes a beautifully restored 5 room suite and the spooky unrestored 11 room area (if you wish)! Our hotel was built in 1850 as a 10 room frontier hotel, stagecoach stop, saloon, restaurant and brothel. Located in Seguin's quaint Historic Downtown District.

The space
The beautifully restored upstairs 5 room single suite 1850's Bed & Breakfast on the second floor consists of:

* 2 separate private bedrooms with doors for privacy (1 king size bed & 1 Queen size bed both with ceiling fans) and a beautiful view of our backyard grounds.
* living room (with non-cable TV, a DVD player, spooky DVD's to watch, books & board games). There is no Wifi so put those cell phones down and enjoy a step back in time.
* non-cooking kitchen (microwave, mini-refrigerator, sink, coffee maker).
We provide a Continental breakfast of coffee and the fixins', apple juice, bottle water and 2 types of breakfast bars.
* private restroom with a walk in shower (complimentary toiletries, towels, hair dryer)
* Central Ice Cold AC & Comfy Warm Heat controlled by guest inside the suite.

YES, you are given complete access to the ENTIRE 2800 sq ft / 16 room second floor all to yourself! This includes the elegant 5 room restored BnB suite and the 11 room creepy un-restored area of the second floor (if you dare!) The un-restored side to visit is totally up to you. The un-restored side does NOT have electricity which means NO AC or heat. It's un-restored, dusty and very spooky but it is yours to journey into. We have pictures, and historic articles all throughout the area for you to learn more about the history of the building and the spirits who reside there.
Our private residence on the entire bottom floor, the backyard grounds and basement are not included in your stay. We do live on the property, but rarely interact with our guests. Although a tour of the hotel is not included in your stay, we do offer our Guided Ghost Tours one Saturday a month.

Heads up to YouTubers, social media fan-based paranormal teams, amateur documentary and film makers, etc., please read before booking. We do NOT allow live streaming, videoing, filming, etc. inside the second floor for use on ANY public media outlets (such as but not limited to YouTube, Tik Tok, etc.). We allow guests into our private home who wish to simply interact with our spirits and experience their presence. We are no longer a film location. Our Magnolia Hotel is now our private home which we have graciously been allowing guests to stay overnight. You can take still pictures and record audio for EVP's as much as you like. We just ask that you respect our home (as we would yours) by not filming. If un-allowed videoing is discovered a substantial fee will be charged plus all filming is then the property of Ghedi International, LLD.

Where you’ll be

Seguin, Texas, United States

The 1850 Magnolia Hotel is located in Seguin's charming Historic Downtown District. You can actually see the park from the windows of your suite. After exploring the second floor of the Magnolia Hotel, walk to the beautiful City Park located just steps from the hotel. It is absolutely stunning at night with its thousands of twinkling lights glistening from the majestic Oak trees. The park offers historical markers, statutes, a gazebo and a magnificent water fountain to sit by. There is also a gorgeous Community Garden at the end of the block. You can let your imagination go free and give thought to what it was like when the town was owned by the original Texas Rangers. Take a stroll to the end of S Crockett St to view the city's Heritage Village which has the log cabin once belonging to the Campbell family, the tiny first church and the original Calaboose (jail on wheels) that carried many prisoners to the hanging tree. At the end of Donegan you will notice a three story white building. This is Seguin's first jail built in 1852. It is said to be very haunted. There are several antique shops, boutiques, restaurants, bars and a museum all within walking distance (Mon-Sat) to make your visit worth the trip.
