Take a trip back in time while sleeping in comfortable beds and watching your favorite movies (on one of 3) 32' LCD TVs, or surf the internet with blazing fast fiber. A HGTV Designer provided most of the furnishings and colors in this house. The bathroom is brand new and offers a walk in shower. The bathroom is period correct with the tile work and white granite counter top. 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. Two bedroom (Guess which one Doc Slept in?) with a King in the Master and a Queen in second bedroom. Each mattress is encased in a zipped cover for your protection.
Guests in the 'Doc Holliday' 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 in the driveway and leave it for the rest of your stay. No need to drive when you can walk to the fun vineyards and events in town. Grapevine is a fun, exciting, and safe place! Enjoy!
Please note ENTIRE house (Doc Holliday House and Doc TOO) can be rented together making the house a 3 bedroom, 2 bath, 2 kitchen and den home. It can be opened up via the laundry room. Entire house rental rate is $434 per night with a one time cleaning fee of $150 and a $300 REFUNDABLE deposit.
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 travellers 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 first stab at this so your feedback is very important.
Mary Ann Holliday purchased this house in 1992
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.

We were in town for a week long soccer tournament and decided to try VRBO instead of a hotel. We are so glad we did! The Doc Holliday House was perfect for us. Everything we needed was right there... restaurants, shopping, etc. The house was simply adorable and Mary Ann made sure we felt like we were at home. We will definitely return! Thank you for everything!
I rented the Doc Holliday House while in town for a dance competition for my daughter and her team. We were MORE than thrilled with our stay. I have rented a lot of VRBO's from Florida to Alaska and this one just might have been my favorite of ALL TIME! Mary Ann thought of everything and the home was clean, comfortable and close to everything. Our competition was at the Gaylord Texan and I could be to the venue within 5 minutes. It was too perfect.
Thank you for everything!!
Our first time visiting Grapevine Texas, and choosing the Doc Holiday House was the perfect place to stay.
The house was spacious for 4 adults and a child. Mary Ann Holiday takes great care in providing everything that made our stay even more personal.
When we arrived, there were snacks, a complimentary bottle of wine, music playing... It just gave you the feeling that someone was looking forward to your arrival. I absolutely recommend the Doc House. We are already planning to return. Thank you so much Mary Ann!!!!
There is no better place to stay when visiting Grapevine. MaryAnn has thought of everything. The house is wonderfully decorated. The beds are nice and comfy. The rain head shower, oh my! We grilled outside one evening. We were sitting waiting at the outdoor seating area, the mosquitoes were awful. MaryAnn had citronella candles in the closet. Yay!! Even the light switches are labeled.
We were able to walk to the wineries and the Farmer's Market. Cannot wait to go back.
My husband and I stayed here for our wedding and again for our first anniversary....and hopefully many more times to come. The home is charming and immaculate. The attention to detail is outstanding. And the location is great. Highly recommend.
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 wine tastings. 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).
