Great Guest House, Prime Location

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at the Abby Guest House! Perfect for our family and the location could not have been better- close to restaurants and shopping and less than 10 minutes to the state fair! Julie was very friendly and made sure we had everything we needed. We would definitely stay here again :)

We loved it

  • 5 of 5

This place was charming, cozy, and consistent with all of the positive reviews I read prior to booking. Booking was easy and the owner was prompt with replies to questions about the guesthouse and the area.

The home is in a neighborhood walkable to great restaurants and shops. There is also a trader joes close by if you are staying for an extended period of time. I noticed there were plenty of pots, pans, and cooking utensils, as well as extra blankets, linens, towels, and toiletries.

We had a great time at this great spot and will book again if we are in Dallas!

Amazing vacation rental!!

  • 5 of 5

My boyfriend and I stayed here for two nights while visiting Dallas and it was lovely. The house was so beautiful and homely, and Julie put an incredible and unique amount of thoughtfulness into the place. There are a bunch of board games, and a bookshelf with categorized information about restaurants in the area, things to do, Texas history, etc. we had never been to Dallas before and this was such an amazing touch. Julie was also so sweet. Thank you for an amazing stay!
