Overview

Dallas Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Quaint guesthouse for 2 adults located in the best location in Dallas.

Our guest house, located in an extremely safe and central location of Dallas TX was originally built in 1918, and has been renovated over the years. There is a two night minimum. There is a full sized bed and the guesthouse is great for a maximum of 2 adults. During spring and summer our guests can use our beautiful pool or at all times can relax in the yard or under the overhang of the guest house. Te pool is for use only by our guests. The guest house has central heat and air conditioning, free internet access, a large flat screen TV with cable access to hundreds of channels, microwave, extremely comfortable full sized bed, small refrigerator, coffee maker, iron and ironing board, dishes, glasses, wine opener and lots of towels. The guest house has been fenced off from the rest of the yard so you can enjoy your privacy. The bedroom has a table and chairs for eating or working on your laptop. Parking is on the street. Wonderful restaurants, stores and SMU are within walking distance and the Katy Trail for running, biking and walking is very close by to our guest house. We are just about an 8 minute walk to bus line 21 at McKinney and Monticello, a five minute ride to downtown and about a 15 minute walk to the local train at Mockingbird Station. We have a yellow labrador retriever Sophie who lives in our home which is located next to the guest house, but we do not allow other pets on our property. We cherish our guests and have enjoyed meeting people from all over the world. We wish you safe journeys always.

About Marty and Will

Will and I have been partners for almost 9 years. I am an attorney and have been practicing law for over 36 years. I graduated from SMU Law School in 1977 and Cornell University in 1974. My areas of practice include criminal defense, family law, probate and wills, traffic ticket defense and personal injury. My partner Will has worked for Mary Kay for 21 years and is a engineer in the factory. He has two children, 19 and 21.We also have a yellow labrador retriever Sophie who was born on 11-12-11. We love traveling and meeting people from all over the world. Renting out guest house has been a fantastic experience.

Marty and Will purchased this cottage in 2001

Why Marty and Will chose Dallas

I love the neighborhoods close to SMU where I received my law degree. Most of my neighbors have knocked down the old cottages, but I decided to renovate my charming 1918 cottage and the old garage which has become the guest house. The neighborhood has wonderful restaurants, shopping and is very safe. My home is close to the Katy Trail, downtown and SMU.

What makes this cottage unique

You will love the sitting area under the overhang of the guest house, the beautiful pool and our serene and well-landscaped yard. There is plenty of furniture in the yard to enjoy sitting outside and reading a book or sipping on a glass of wine. The Katy Trail is easily accessed from the guest house. You can jog, walk or bike on the Katy Trail. This neighborhood is extremely safe and is centrally located.

Dallas Getaway

  • 5 of 5
Very small place but beautiful and clean and well worth the money. Absolutly gorgeous neighborhood with sidewalks everywhere and a awesome biking or running trail right behind the house. Walking distance to some restaurants and a very short drive to others. 10 minute drive to Dallas Lovefield airport (all back roads). Short drive to train station and a laundermat if needed. No oven or toasteroven just micro and fridge. Suitable for couples only. Highly recommend!!

Good Place for One Person

  • 4 of 5
I just had my 2nd stay at the guesthouse. Like the 1st, it was quite pleasant. The smallness of the cottage is offset by the seating area on the porch, overlooking the beautiful garden and pool area. The location is superb, in the prestigiuos Highland Park area. Co-owner Marty is a nice man who makes one feel at ease.

Fantastic Guest House!

  • 5 of 5
What a great place! Martin and William keep an immaculate residence in an incredible neighborhood! Knew it was a nice area, but when I told locals where I was staying they were very impressed! Easy access from Love Field...I didn't rent a car, but used Uber and Lyft as I wasn't very far from Downtown Dallas. Even tried out the bus using DART (there is a stop just a few blocks away, very easy). They provided a list of nearby activities, and the amount of things to do just in the immediate neighborhood is extensive. Great bars and restaurants. The backyard has a nice pool, and it backs up against the Katy Trail which is great for runners and walkers. The dog is wonderful, very friendly and was an added bonus! This is perfect for one person, manageable with two (double bed, I think?), but I wouldn't do any more than that as it is one bedroom/one bath. The pictures are accurate of the rental, and it was very reasonable in comparison to the area hotels.

An Oasis

  • 5 of 5
We came here for an anniversary trip, not knowing how much we were going to enjoy the place where we stayed. It met all of our expectations and so much more. We had planned so many outings which we thoroughly enjoyed, but what made this trip so special was coming back to our little oasis. Marty and Will are both very personable - the perfect hosts. They were knowledgable about the area, giving many tips. The private guest pad was perfect for us, and on a hot 100 degree day, a dip in the pool was a refreshing relief. Since most of our outings revolved around biking, the direct access to the Katy Trail from their property made it that much more appealing. We loved that this property was so close to so many of the local attractions - art district, restaurants, uptown, museums, etc. We particularly enjoyed seeing Les Miserables at the Wyly Theater, the Katy Trail Ice House on Katy Trail for burgers, Eatzi's (a local fresh Italian market that plays opera music), the MADI museum (free) which displays modern geometric art, and The Crooked Tree Coffee Shop. We look forward to visiting Will and Marty again soon.

Excellent Find

  • 5 of 5
Enjoyed our stay at the cottage. Was small but all we needed for a great weekend. Close to down town and with in walking distance of so much to do. Right on the walking trail and was beautiful. Owners were so nice, friendly and made sure we were comfortable and had everything we need. We will rent again when we go back to Dallas in the future if available.

This small guest house was perfect for my husband and I. We only slept and had breakfast there and it worked well. It was close to a transportation station, from which we did all our getting around Dallas. The SMU neighborhood was very nice with great restaurants.
