About Roseanne S.

My husband, a former motorcross and supercross competitor, and I love saving and restoring old homes. We are real estate agents, investors, remodelers and for fun we like 'looking for the next project'. Every now and then we'll pack an overnight bag and spend a long weekend at The Merlot House and enjoy everything that Grapevine has to offer. Sharing our home with others has given us the opportunity to meet some great people and make new friends.

Why Roseanne S. chose Dallas - Fort Worth (DFW)

We enjoy all of the festivals and special events in the area especially at Christmas time. In the summer we spend a lot of time time on Lake Grapevine so the location works well for us. We love the real small town feel Grapevine has to offer.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Roseanne,

Just a short note to let you know how much we enjoyed staying at your beautiful home Everything was wonderful and the house is equipped with more than what we expected! I will definitely recommend your house to my friends and if we come back to Grapevine we will definitely come stay again! It was a great location with plenty of privacy and we felt right at home from the start. Sorry for taking so long to send this note. Thanks again for having us and I hope someday to come back and meet you!

Have a great day and a great 2011!!

Lovely Home!

  • 4 of 5

Roseanne & Roy were great hosts, they have a lovely place in Grapevine, in a nice quiet street. Bedrooms are a good size, comfortable mattresses and the residence was clean. The open dining, kitchen, living area and the outside sitting area are also good sized spaces which easily accommodated our 5 person group.

We had a great time catching up with family and we didn't have to worry one bit about our accommodation, The Merlot House is a great place to call a home away from home. Highly recommended!

So Cute!

  • 5 of 5

Just stayed here last week. We were in town for a family wedding. The owners were very prompt in getting back to me. The house is beautiful and very clean. We felt very at home. The kitchen even had spices etc in the cabinet to cook with. I would definitely stay again if need be. It was close to the main street so you could walk to the wineries and not worry about driving.

Perfect Location..

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed the Merlot House this weekend. We had a ladies weekend and we're all able to be together in one place.

The house was clean, equipped with all the necessities we needed, plenty of sleeping places, and was the perfect location for Grapevine Main Street activities.

Wonderful Rental

  • 5 of 5

This rental was perfect for our family vacation. It was so close to everything we needed including visits to Dallas and Fort Worth. The rental is perfectly stocked especially for someone who flew to Texas from Pennsylvania. :) The house was very clean and full of charm. The owners were very easy to work with. Grapevine is a wonderful town with lots to visit and great places to eat. I would recommend going to the Farmer's Market in some great salsa and soap there. We would definitely recommend this rental to anyone looking to stay in Grapevine.

Beautiful house, close to everything.

  • 5 of 5

Some friends and I stayed at the Merlot House for 2 nights and it was a great experience. The house is lovely, very clean, and big enough to fit 5 adults comfortably. It was just moments from downtown Grapevine and only a 10ish minute drive to the airport. The owner was very responsive and polite. Recommend this property!
