Quirky old but comfortable mid-century house in the middle of the Cultural District. The retro kitchen is fully equipped for the foodie and the greatest grocery store on the planet is minutes away. Two eating areas, a formal dining with six big arm chairs and a breakfast area with seating for four. The patio also has seating at a picnic table for dinners.
The hardwood floors and leather furniture help to make the place family friendly. It is also a quiet neighborhood for adults only. The living room is open to the dining room. There are three exterior doors, the entry from the front porch, a small French door to the yard from the bedroom that has a private bath, one off the breakfast room to the patio.
There are two kings, one is a split memory foam with separate sheets sets. The beds can be adjusted to raise feet or head and each has a vibration mode for feet or whole body. There is a big bath across the hall. The baths have been updated. Living room can sleep two, each king room can sleep up to three. The double can sleep two. The guest house can sleep two in a queen bed. The guest house has bath, kitchen and small sitting area with one red leather chair. Very small but cute room.
This is a clean, comfortable home in a quiet safe neighborhood that your family and friends will feel welcome in.
We are a ranching family that raises horses, cows, rodeo cowboys and state wrestling champions. We show cutting horses. Our trainer is a member of the National Cutting Horse Association Hall of Fame. We are AAA cutting horse judges. We have four children and five grand children.
Virginia McLamb purchased this house in 2009
This is our primary home. We go to the ranch when we need to be there. We are on the road about a third of the time to go to horse shows and three of them are right across the street at the Will Rogers Coliseum. We live in Fort Worth full time APRIL, JULY and NOVEMBER/DECEMBER. Mama uses this home more than Papa as an escape from the country and as an art studio for some peace and quiet from the business, located in the cowboy capital, Stephenville, TEXAS, USA.
The fireworks and music from the Botanical Gardens can be seen and heard on summer nights. We have a great view from the front porch. Like to walk to the Kimbell Art Museum for their buffet lunch or to the Amon Carter or The Modern for an art exhibit. It is just so close to all the wonderful restaurants, the zoo, the shopping areas and cultural activities that we don't get in the country where our business is located.
This was the perfect place for us. Everyone could take advantage of all the museums, parks and zoo. And if the baby needed to nap, the parents could walk home. The layout and furnishings suited us very we'll, the kitchen was well equipped, and the whole place was very clean. Thank for a Christmas we will remember. Elsie
This cottage is perfect for sightseeing in Ft Worth. It's about 15-20 min to lots of fun places to see. We loved the Stockyards. Great food and shopping. You've got to see the Long Horns and the gunfight show. Lego Land is about 25 min away. And of course Six Flags is a must.
The pictures don't show how big the cottage really is. The rooms are large, clean, beds are great. Everything you need is supplied. There were 8 of us and we never bumped into each other once. We highly recommend this comfy cottage to everyone. We will definitely stay here again. From the creaky floors to the cactus out front....this place is great.
Thank you Virginia for all your hospitality!
We rented this house for a college graduation ! The house was great ! Comfortably slept 7 people, never felt crowded. Lots of different gathering areas ! The kitchen had everything we needed ! Everything was cleaned and well maintained ! Outdoor space was perfect ! Local charm ! The pictures were accurate. If we plan on returning to Fort Worth to visit again, we will definitely consider this property again !!
Clean, comfortable and convenient. This home provided everything we needed for a great stay. So glad we found it! We'll definately go back when we can.
We stayed here a week and loved the location. Close to the cultural district, great restaurants, Trinity Park, and a great place to have friends and family to stop by and meet on the way to shopping, eating, etc. The home was clean, spacious, cozy and so much better than staying at a hotel. We plan on staying here again.
We recently stayed at this property over the Xmas holidays. We are relocated Texans visiting our family and this home was just perfect for our needs. It was clean and all the necessary amenities were available. I was able to cook family meals. It is in a quirky neighborhood but my son and I felt secure on our morning walks. It was a home away from home. I would highly recommend this property.
Northside Fort Worth is a few minutes away. Stockyards, longhorn cattle drive, rodeo, several saloons and a giant western dance hall. Lots of Cowboys and Cowgirls. The Will Rogers Memorial Center also hosts year round horse shows and other events of interest. There is a big flea market across the street, gun shows, bridal shows and other merchandise shows.
