We live in the heart of McKinney’s Historic District. In addition to seeing the many older, picturesque homes in this area, we are a short 10 minute walk from McKinney’s Historic Downtown Square. Many of our guests enjoy the variety of restaurants, entertainment, and unique stores on the Square.
McKinney is 30 miles north of Dallas. Access to North Dallas is about a 25-30 minute drive on US75 or new tollways. We are long-time Dallas and McKinney residents, so we can assist guests with directions and suggestions for attractions, entertainment, restaurants, and shopping in the Dallas-Ft. Worth area. We will respect your privacy.
Come enjoy McKinney and stay with us in our quiet, relaxed neighborhood.

We enjoy hosting guests in our fully updated 1920's arts & craft-style bungalow. Always enchanted with the historic district, we decided to move to the area after our children were "out of the nest." It is a beautiful neighborhood of older homes and large trees.
We enjoy the easy and short walk to McKinney's historic downtown square to dine in the many restaurants and shop at the unique stores. And we always invite friends and guests to relax on the large front porch of our main house. We can also recommend restaurants, sights, shopping and entertainment in McKinney and the Dallas-Ft. Worth area.
Please consider a stay at our guest cottage; you won't be disappointed!
