House was exactly as photos show, perfect fit for our family. Frances was a very accommodating and met us upon arrival to show us around. All the beds were very comfortable. We will stay again if ever in the area.

Big house on secluded lot

  • 5 of 5

The house is roomy and as advertised. We had a wonderful time. The house is full of memorabilia and is like a museum. Plenty of bathrooms, comfortable beds and a well equipped kitchen. Owner is very friendly and helpful. I highly recommend this rental

A Cozy, Comfortable, Quiet Home

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this home for 2 weeks and found it to be everything we needed and wanted. The layout makes it ideal for 2 couples traveling together since there are bedrooms on both sides of the house separated by the living/dining/kitchen area. This is a family home and contains many decor items. Because of that, I'd recommend it for travelers without young children who might be tempted by all the pretty and breakable items. The owner is extremely hospitable and made us feel very welcome. I'd love to stay here again.

A wonderful place to have our Christmas!

  • 5 of 5

We arrived and Frances was there to greet us and show us around. The house is very welcoming, with wonderful antiques and comfortable furniture. The set up was purfect for our families needs. There is a large dining table, full kitchen, and very large living area which was decorated beautifully for Christmas, including a Christmas tree. There is a wonderful back yard patio with grills, and a hot tub. The weather was cold and rainy so we didn’t get to enjoy the back yard... but look forward to coming back. We saw a few deer. The property sets off the road in a very quiet neighborhood. It was a great get away for our family.

Comfortable and spacious home.

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here 2 nights on a girls trip to Magnolia Market. There were 9 of us. We had plenty of space for a comfortable stay. I loved that we were out of town yet it was convenient and close to the market, shopping and restaurants.

House was perfect for our girls’ weekend. Very clean. Lots of room for us to all sit together comfortably and talk. Kids had lots of room to play. Enjoyed the backyard. Close to McLane stadium so we could enjoy Baylor homecoming festivities.
