Rotary Club of Mineral Wells today welcomed Jeremy and Magen Desnoyers, right, owners of Magpie Inn, the bed and breakfast formerly known as The Silk Stocking at the corner of N.W. 4th Avenue and N.W. 4th Street. Pictured with the Desnoyers is program chair Dianne Templar.
 
The Desnoyers acquired the property earlier this year from investor Mark Rawlings, a principal investor and construction manager for the Baker Hotel project.
 
Married 10 years, the Desnoyers previously managed a property in Fredricksburg before overseeing a bed and breakfast in Fort Worth. They were looking to purchase their own property and found Rawlings and the property in Mineral Wells. Mineral Wells always held a special place in Magen’s heart because it is where her “Nana” has lived most of her life. Nana’s nickname for Magen is “Magpie,” hence the inn’s new name.
 
Magen serves on the Texas Bed and Breakfast Association. She has a culinary and events planning background. She has combined her hospitality, culinary and events planning experience and talents to offer and create a fun and memorable stay for their guests. The inn sits just a few blocks off North Oak Avenue, walking distance to Mineral Wells’ downtown food, markets and entertainment district.
 
 
Of course within a few miles of Magpie Inn are a variety of attractions and things to do in and around Mineral Wells including three state parks, the Crazy Bath House spa, National Vietnam War Museum, tubing and canoeing on the Brazos River, two area golf courses, Mineral Wells Fossil Park and Possum Kingdom Lake.
 
The Magpie Inn has five upstairs guest rooms, including one room with an additional den that sleeps up to four. Each room has a king-size bed, private bathroom and flat screen TV. Each room has access to a screen-in upper porch balcony with a view of the Baker Hotel and Crazy Water Hotel. The inn can accommodate up to 12 guests at one time.
