Steel Magnolias Bed and Breakfast

You Can Stay in the Real-Life House From Steel Magnolias, So Grab Your Girlfriends!

Posted by Vicente Luigi Moreno on Saturday, December 2, 2017

It's been nearly three decades since Steel Magnolias was released, and yet the iconic film — inspired by a play of the same name — is still our de facto manual on life, loss, and friendship. How can it not be with lines like, "If you don't have anything nice to say about anybody, come sit by me!"? As it turns out, fans can actually stay in the real-life home featured in the film.

As Southern Living pointed out, the home where M'Lynn and Drum Eatenton live in Steel Magnolias is now a bed and breakfast open for business. Located in Natchitoches, LA — about four hours outside of New Orleans — the Steel Magnolia House features six bedrooms, a lush landscape, and a guesthouse on the property.

The interior no longer resembles the one portrayed in the film — nor is it swathed in "blush and bashful" — and it now has a more antique aesthetic. As a nice added touch, however, each guest room is named after a character in the film: Shelby, Clairee, Ouiser, Jackson, and Annelle. To book a room, simply call the number listed on the official Steel Magnolia House website. We sense a girls' trip in the making!
