Owner info

About the owner: My husband, a former motorcross and supercross competitor, and I love saving and restoring old homes. We are real estate agents, investors, remodelers and for fun we like 'looking for the next project'. Every now and then we'll pack an overnight bag and spend a long weekend at The Merlot House and enjoy everything that Grapevine has to offer. Sharing our home with others has given us the opportunity to meet some great people and make new friends.

Why the Owner Chose Grapevine:
We enjoy all of the festivals and special events in the area especially at Christmas time. In the summer we spend a lot of time time on Lake Grapevine so the location works well for us. We love the real small town feel Grapevine has to offer.
