Charming Cottage Private Entrance

House - Private room · North Waddill Street, McKinney, TX 75069, United States

A dramatic and comfortable room in my modest 1930's home in a beautiful historic district. McKinney is a warm community with it's best parts within a mile from my home, including the town square, parks, grocery, movies and freeways.

The Space

The room is crisp black & white with red. Fully furnished with a double bed, mini fridge, microwave, couch, dresser, desk and closet. Windows overlook a large shaded backyard filled with birds & squirrels. We share the bath and you may use the kitchen.

Guest Access

Guests will have access to the shared bath and kitchen. All bedrooms are private, the rest of the house is negotiable. Wireless internet is available, but we'd have to work on TV. I have an extra bicycle you may ride and the neighborhood has anything you want within a mile.

Interaction with Guests

This is my own home where I live. I'm open to interaction but can give privacy. You've got your own entrance, so I won't even know when you come and go. On the other hand, we share the bath and kitchen, so if you want company, just come on out.

The Neighborhood

I choose this neighborhood for it's historic homes and close knit community atmosphere where it's easy to get to know my neighbors. I'm surrounded by beautifully restored homes and friendly streets filled with joggers and dog & baby walkers. You can walk to so many fun things on the town square, where there's always live music, a play, concert or old movie as well as distinct restaurants and shops. McKinney is 'Unique by Nature' and has been voted #2, 5 & 12 small best towns in America by Money Magazine over the last several years. Come find out for yourself!

Getting around

Easy access to Hwy (phone number hidden). My house is walking distance to almost everything I need. McKinney does have a fledgling public transportation system and there's a train to Dallas just 15 minutes away in Plano. Street parking is closest to your room's private entrance.

    It's a pleasure to have you here, Debbie. Keep coming back!

  • We made a reservation for my husband last minute do to work demands and incoming bad weather. Chrisy could not have been more accommodating and kind. Her accommodations were just as she described and even had juice and fruit waiting. Her communication and availability were fantastic. Thank you Chrisy for all of your help!

  • Chrissy was a delightful hostess. And her place was just perfect for my needs for a centrally located, clean, economical place to stay, to be able to come and go through the private entrance, be able to prepare some of my own food and have access to the internet.

    Very thoughtful and attentive, Chrissy was super helpful and conscientious about making sure I had directions to get to her place and other places in the area, as well as making sure I got oriented to the house and that I had what I needed. Not only would I stay there again, I am going to!

    Nancy, You have wonderful ideas & I'm looking forward to seeing you again on your return trip in a few months.

  • From the moment i arrived at Chrisy's home i felt comfortable and was asked if i could think of any thing to make my stay more .pleasant . I chose the private entrance room and was very comfortable . I am very allergic to cats ....yet staying here did not cause an issue as she had super cleaned the room and the cat is mot able to enter. I requested a desk for doing computer work for my job thing i know.....voila...a desk in my room.
    I was very pleased with location and accomodations.
