The guest house was great. Great and quiet area. The guest house had a feeling of home. We will definitely come back again.
The house was cozy and delightful, in a beautiful neighborhood of classic old-fashioned bungalows, within easy walking distance to fun restaurants. Julie was a great host, quick to step in and help with whatever was needed. We definitely recommend it!
A five-star guest house experience! I was in Dallas on a short term research trip, and this was an ideal home away from home for the duration of my stay. The apartment was spacious, comfortable and impeccably well-kept; I looked forward to coming "home" every evening. Julie made it easy to check in and out and responded very quickly to messages (though I never actually met her in person). This is a fantastic space -- looking forward to staying here again!
I enjoyed my stay at Abby Guest House. Julie was very friendly. The space is very inviting, with thought given to comfortable pastel colors for the walls and peaceful art. The bed is very comfortable! It feels very private, and it is very quiet at night. The location is very interesting, as it is an old neighborhood with intriguing architecture and large trees. Walking distance to good restaurants.
Lovely and convenient place to stay! Charming little cottage! Loved the nearby bars and restaurants and the book of descriptions of each Julie has for guests. Great experience!
I loved staying at Abby Guesthouse. Such a cute cottage, and completely private, which was exactly what I needed at the time. Arrival was very easy and straight forward. The place had everything I could have wished for, even some really cool DVD's. Everything, absolutely everything is available, including toiletries and a pantry and fridge with tons of condiments. Everything is explained really well and documented in a folder, with lots and lots of info about things to do, restaurants, shops etc.The neighborhood is quiet and green with beautiful trees lining the streets and avenues. A lake is about 10 mins away by car with great running and biking trail leading right around it. Downtown is easy to reach by car too, and Whole Foods is about 10 minutes by car. For anyone looking for a quiet, cosy place in Dallas, this is it!
Abby's Guest House is a really cosy place - more like a home. Everything necessary was provided, we had a very comfortable stay.
