Interaction with Guests
We have a people-friendly Great Dane who comes inside when we are at home. If traveling with your pets, we ask that you lodge them at the Windcrest Pet Resort located just 5 minutes away.
We are located in a residential neighborhood within a few driving minutes of the main shopping district on Loop 288, Lake Lewisville and boat or jet ski rentals, Water Works Park, historic downtown Denton, University of North Texas and Texas Womans University. We are within two miles of NCTC, the Regional Medical Center, and a few neighborhood restaurants.
Don Camillo's, the best Italian restaurant in town, is a 30 min walk or 10 min bike ride from our front door.
The DART MedPark Train Station is 1.5 miles north (a brisk 30 minute walk) along the Denton Katy Trail. The DCTA line goes north to downtown Denton and the DART green line south to Lake Lewisville, Carrollton and downtown Dallas including Deep Ellum, Victory Park and Fair Park.
Other Things to Note
The City of Denton has one of the most aggressive and successful renewable energy programs in the nation. It is one of our main reasons for choosing Denton as our home. In doing our part, our home currently generates 35-50% of its own electricity with photo-voltaic (solar) panels. You can help us conserve energy by turning off lights and appliances when you're away.
Our check-in and check-out times are flexible. If you have a travel schedule that requires a check-in before 2 p.m. or a check-out after 12 noon, please let us know in advance.
If you anticipate that you will have a temporary or additional guest during your stay, or if the duration of your stay needs to change for any reason, we will happily accommodate you if you can provide us with 24 hours notice.
We do not provide breakfast meal beyond snacks, coffee and tea. There are several grocers, restaurants and fast food locations within a few miles by bicycle or car, and you are welcome to use the refrigerator and pantry for any provisions. The kitchen is available to guests for light use.
A bathroom, directly next door to the guest room, is reserved for your exclusive use. Basic toiletries as well as bedroom and bathroom linens are provided.
Our Great Dane would love to meet you. If large dogs are not your style, for short stays we can arrange to restrict her activity to the private portions of the home.
We ask that you please lower the toilet lid or close the bathroom door during your stay to prevent our curious canine from using the 'watering hole'.
The queen bed sleeps two adults comfortably. It is occasionally possible with prior arrangement for an additional feather-top mattress (100% real down feathers) to be added to the bed for extra nest-like softness.
Smoking is allowed in outdoor covered patio spaces only.
Parking is available on either side of the street.
My husband and I bought this house when we married and we have lived here for ten years. Aaron works full-time for an auto dealership and I work full-time at a property management software company. We are both very social, love animals, and spend a lot of time with our friends and family. We also love meeting new people and having them stay in our home. We tend to be home in the evenings for meals and perhaps a movie. Our guests are always welcome to join us, but we are courteous of your hours and the house is generally quiet. Our Great Dane is a people lover, too, and she will give you plenty of hugs, kisses and attention with very little prompting! (We did not join any groups, but we are friendly to all.)
