Take a trip back in time while sleeping in zippered encased comfortable beds and watching your favorite movies on the main 60' Flat Panel or the Bedroom 32' LCD TV, or surf the internet with blazing fast fiber. A HGTV Designer provided most of the furnishings and colors in this house. The bathroom is remodeled and offers a walk in shower. The bathroom is period correct with the tile work. Wall attached hair dryer provided.
New plumbing was installed which provides fresh tasting Grapevine Water without that “Old” mineral taste from most older homes in Grapevine. No metal pipes here, PEX piping provides flavor like the Springs.
Central AC and Gas Heat in every room plus Split Unit's (Newest Technology that hit the US Shores). The Master Bedroom (Guess which one Doc Slept in?) offers a KING size bed while the brand new leather couch has a comfortable queen pull out. Each mattress is encased in a zipped cover for your protection.
Guests in the 'Doc Holliday Too' house are just one block from Main Street, literally around the corner from Esparza's, and two houses from one of Grapevine’s many Wine Tasting rooms. Play it safe by not driving or walking long distances after enjoying your days at many Wineries, Festivals, and award winning restaurants along Main Street.
Don't miss a ride on Grapevine's Vintage Railroad traveling to Fort Worth's Historic Stockyards for an unbelievable feel of the old west. Enjoy a leisure ride on the Grapevine Tour Bus and Grapevine Wine Tour Bus or grab a famous Esparza’s Margarita on your journey to Main Street (which is only four houses down), or stroll back to Doc Holiday's house after an encouraging pitcher.
Safely park your vehicle and leave it for the rest of your stay. No need to drive when you can walk to the fun vineyards, shops, restaurants and events in town. Grapevine is a fun, exciting, and safe place! Enjoy!
The Welcome Guide is located on the den table providing details of the Grapevine area. We hope you enjoy your experience.

About Mary Ann Holliday
We love to travel around the world and only utilize VRBO (or similar) services versus hotels. We finally decided to make the leap and offer our special property to travelers with similar needs as ours. This is not our full time job but rather a conduit of enjoyment. I (Rik) juggle many different things. I have been involved in Telecommunications for over 25 years. I also restore 1969-70 Shelby Mustangs with a NASCAR team to bring a unique and limited vehicle to the road. The 'Better' half (Wife) is retired from the airlines and currently manages the house and our two daughters along with a few other properties that will hopefully become VRBO's some day (Pending the outcome of this treasure...). This is our second stab at this so your feedback is very important.
Mary Ann Holliday purchased this House in 1992
Why Mary Ann Holliday chose Grapevine
The 'Historic District' within Historic Grapevine is where “its” all happening. No question that all the action is within the Historic District and the 'Doc Holliday' house is smack dab in the middle. Have you ever heard the phrase, “6 Degrees of Separation”? Well this story is more like 2 degrees of separation. I purchased a home from an older lady years ago whom was born and raised in Grapevine. She has since passed and would be pushing 100 if still alive. During the closing process of the house transaction, she noticed my name (Richard Holliday). She asked me if I was, “Kin” to Doc Holliday. I explained that I was and went through the story...She then shared with me that her aunt owned a house and rented a room to Doc Holliday for two months. She put me in contact with the current owner of the house of which I approached (They didn’t know the story) and I asked them if they had an interest in selling. They contacted me months later as they decided to move out West. The transaction was complete and I now own a house that my Great Great Great Grandfather slept in.
What makes this House unique

We absolutely LOVED our stay at the Doc Holliday House TOO!!! From the moment we pulled up, the house captivated out attention. The moment we entered I could feel the stress melting away!! The house was pristinely clean! There was light music playing and the decor style was so relaxing, yet also unique and made you want to look at everything. The personalized notes in the kitchen and the complimentary bottle of wine were so inviting and truly felt sincere! Mary Ann did an AMAZING job from the moment of first contact to ensure that everything went smoothly and that our stay was perfect! This space is made for even the most stressed people to relax!! Seriously!! I was able to relax for the first time in 2 1/2 years and the bed was AMAZING!! (definitely better than any hotel bed!) I will definitely be booking another stay at the Doc Holliday House TOO, and will honestly probably become a regular staple 4-6 times a year just for an escape and place to relax!! Thank you again Mary Ann for everything you did to ensure that we had an AMAZING time!!!!
Thank you so very much for taking the time to give us a review. I am thrilled you enjoyed our home and could relax and enjoy! We look forward to your next stay with us! Hurry back!
All the Best,
Cozy, warm Texas home away from home
Fantastic place to stay, great location in historic Grapevine and central to DFW metro area. Home was setup beautifully and had lots of nice little touches waiting to make you feel at home. Very much appreciated!
The most charming little house in Texas!
The house is a short walk from Main Street Grapevine. The decor is absolutely charming. The neighborhood is charming, too — and very safe. During our visit, they were setting up all the Christmas lights on the Main Street, and it was so festive and beautiful. This was a repeat stay, and we will stay again. The hosts of this house have thought of everything for you. Thank you, MaryAnn and Rik!
So close to Grapevine Main Street -very convenient-great house-will go back 😀
Awesome once again!
We are repeat guests - very pleased!
Loved our stay in Grapevine!
Location of home is ideal and amenities top notch! Thanks again for a wonderful stay!
1 Block to Historic Main Street. There are no other properties or hotels closer than this gem. We are also located the closest to a wine tasting studio which is two houses down. Easily hop on/off the Wine Tour bus and explore 7 vineyards. Esparza's Tex Mex cafe is known as the, 'Margarita Capital of Texas', so be sure to walk up four houses and try a few of your own. Main Street is loaded with a bunch of cool eclectic shops and outstanding eateries (Non big box types).
