Had the most lovely weekend in this charming cottage. It had everything we wanted, and felt like we were far from the stresses of city life. The garden is gorgeous, and the cottage is well decorated. And it was located near all the places we wanted to visit. Would stay here again for sure.
Kathy was very welcoming. She texted me back promptly and the whole booking process was very simple. The little cottage was like a little private hide-away at the back of her secluded garden. I had a very relaxing couple of days. The bed was extremely comfortable!
It is very close and convenient to TCU, downtown and withing easy walking distance to W. Magnolia Ave where there are numerous shops/restaurants. I hope to back again.
Kathryn was an exquisite host! Her cottage is darling, private, and secluded exactly as advertised. The cottage even had coffee and snacks waiting at my late arrival! Kathryn was very easily accessible by cell phone and incredibly welcoming. The cottage is mere moments from the heart of everything in the city. My only regret is that I did not get to meet her in person due to the schedule of my trip! I felt very safe and she made a very hectic visit to Fort Worth convenient, pleasant, and restful!
Kathryn's cottage is so adorable and she has the place well stocked with everything you need. Despite all the rain, we really enjoyed our stay. I'd love to come back in better weather to enjoy her beautiful garden.
My wife and I had a wonderful time at the small cottage in Fort Worth. The place is in the perfect location if you love to try out different types of restaurants. The bed is super cozy and there was snacks and water for us when we arrived. We look forwarding to staying there again next time we are in Fort Worth.
Great stay. Private room in a quiet neighborhood. Lots of great amenities and Kathryn was very accommodating. Very close to Forth Worth attractions.
My wife and I just returned from our trip to Ft Worth. Kathryn was a real western host. She made us feel at home, totally welcomed with a wonderful walk thru and explanation of how everything worked. She also recommended a local Mexican restaurant for us to try. One day she invited us to a neighborhood parade complete with fire trucks, bicycles and marching bands. It was a "real" suburban city experience. Her cottage is located within an beautiful garden setting. Thanks for a great stay.
