Prepare to be amazed as you step into this historic home located in the charming town of Columbiana, Alabama.  The home has been totally renovated, but features original floors, doors, and much more.  As in all of our homes, we have created a beautiful yet cozy environment for your stay- whether it’s just for a weekend or a for few weeks.  No detail was left out, and we cant wait to share this special place with you.  

Magnolia Manor was originally built in 1853, and was the home of J.R. White and then occupied by his daughter, Mildred White Wallace from the time of her birth in 1890 until her death in 1981.  Mildred was a famous composer and singer, also known throughout the South as the Dixie Bluebird.  She was also the editor of The Shelby County Democrat and was well known throughout the area.  We purchased the home is total disrepair in 2017 and have spent the last 3 years working hard to bring her back to her original glory.  

Magnolia Manor features three huge King bedrooms, each with a gorgeous en-suite.  A twin air mattress can be provided, if needed.  The space includes an absolutely gorgeous kitchen, living area, two wide hallways with seating, a powder room, and laundry room.  There’s also a large back porch that is great to hang out, grill, and enjoy the outdoors.  

The kitchen has a large, gathering island and beautiful appliances including a gas stove-top.  The living area has a large, super comfortable sectional sofa and a 75” smart TV.  Each suite has a 55”smart TV, as well.  WiFi works great throughout the home.   The laundry area features a full-size front load washer and dryer.  

if you are interested in hosting a very small event , contact us for pricing . 

We look forward to hosting you in this incredible home!  Our guests rave about their stay.  Why be uncomfortable while you are in town for that special wedding, baseball tournament, fishing at Lay Lake, family visits, or whatever brings you to the Birmingham area?  Feel at home with us!  

We felt this was the perfect property to add to Clements Family Vacation Rentals. When we first walked into this dilapidated historic home, we knew right away that it was a true gem that HAD to be brought back to life. We also knew that there was a need in the area for places for guests to stay, which prompted us to create the perfect home for visitors.
