Your Pleasure, Our Dream
This Inn has been a life long dream of each of us and together we make up a dynamic team as your hosts.
Denise Waters, previous owner of Little Red School House in Tallahassee for 25 years. Recently retired from the daycare to pursue her life long dream of owning a bed and breakfast, along with her husband Andy. Andy and Denise lived aboard their 36 foot houseboat for 3 months prior to purchasing the sweet magnolia. They are lifelong residents of The Tallahassee/ Wakulla area. They have made St. Marks their home. Both Andy and Denise are gourmet cooks and love to entertain. Their love of the water and everything in and around it makes this new venture in their lives a perfect combination for success.
Andy Waters is the other half of the Sweet Magnolia team. Andy is a school teacher and has taught in the Leon county school system for 25 years as an ESE Instructor. Andy was voted volunteer of the year in 2005 by the Tallahassee Memorial hospital foundation and the Tallahassee Democrat, for his work with boy scout troop 33, scouts with disabilities. He is a devoted father to two boys and husband extraordinaire to wife Denise. Andy is also a very talented jazz musician and loves to entertain the guests impromptu, his passion and talent in the kitchen, makes your breakfast at The Sweet Magnolia extra special. Andy also is a great lover of all things in, on, and around the water. When he's not working you can find him kiteboarding, windsurfing, fishing, snorkeling or boating in the rivers or gulf surrounding the St. Marks area.
