As you can see below, we have four wonderful children who were instrumental in the renovation of the house.  We worked on the house every weekend for five years before we could move in.  We could not have completed the renovation without their help and support.

The renovation of Magnolia Manor was a family project that spanned a five year period but the family involvement continues to grow as does the family commitment to Magnolia Manor. 

 We all look forward to meeting you soon.

Larry and Sheila Carver, Innkeepers
