The space

Behind our main home in historic McKinney, we have refurbished a 1920’s arts & craft style guest house. This 570 sq. ft. house has been completely redone inside to now include a living area, full kitchen, bedroom, and full bath. We welcome guests for an overnight stay, or an extended stay over weeks or months. Amenities in the guest house include:
Fully furnished rooms with all sheets, towels, kitchen utensils/dishes, and modern appliances
Heating and air conditioning
A spacious, fully equipped IKEA kitchen that we installed in 2011. New Whirlpool appliances include range/oven, microwave, toaster/oven, dishwasher, refrigerator, disposal, and washer/dryer.
Included local TV and Roku (Netflix/Amazon Prime/streaming), secured wi-fi internet access, DVD/CD player, and sound system
A full bathroom
Iron, ironing board & hair dryer
Onsite parking by the guest house, or on the street

Basically, you can walk into our guest house with your suitcase(s), unpack them, and you’re home. We invite our guests to enjoy the flagstone patio and grill between the guest house and our main home. Guests also enjoy relaxing on the spacious front porch of our main home.

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.

Exceptional guest house in the historical district in McKinney! Gary & Mary Jo are such kind and accommodating hosts. It doesn't get any better than this for a "Home Away from Home" feel.

Such a great little home away from home. Everything you need is provided for you. The square is within walking distance and the surrounding quiet neighborhoods are lovely to walk around too. Definitely recommend this place!

Clean, quiet, well- thought out amenities, truly a wonderful little gem in Historic McKinney. But the best part is Gary and MaryJo, who are so sweet, hospitable and welcoming. You'll definitely want to come back and stay even longer!

Gary & Mary Jo User ProfileGary & Mary Jo is a superhost.

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!
