                            We stayed for close to 2 months to get away from the Michigan winter and cannot say enough about the house (so cute), the neighborhood (walkable and quiet), our hosts (very responsive), and the community (so much to do). I loved the décor. The bathroom is super cute with copper wash basin and walk-in shower. Thank you for wifi and a great printer. We found the senior center where people were warm and welcoming. We found an art studio (Gypsy Muse) and took drawing lessons. We took in a performance at the Texas Star Theater. We couldn't begin to try all the restaurants. We liked Wilhoite's, Big Daddy's and Mi Dia. My only reservation would be the freeways - confusing and under perpetual construction - something that the owners have no control over. Bottom line - this is a great place to stay for a weekend - or for several weeks.

                            This quaint home feels like your own personal vacation home. Nothing was lacking and it literally felt like home away from home. My girlfriend and I are local to the area and just needed a retreat from our hectic lives and the crazy dogs. Instead of driving hours to some remote location to unwind, we decided to explore the lovely downtown Grapevine. The home was a mere 5 minutes away and there is no traffic hassle to deal with. The hot tub is a major plus. I went in with low expectations about the cleanliness and usability of the hot tub. Boy was I blown away. It was immaculate and well maintained. My girlfriend has chronic back and neck pain and the hot tub was just the ticket. Very relaxing. In a nutshell, we LOVED our stay here and would recommend it to anyone who wants to visit Texas and take in the local charm of what Texas is really like.

                            Owner response: Thank you so much for taking time from your hectic life to post this outstanding review. We are glad you enjoyed our comfortable home and was able to relax. We agree that downtown Grapevine has a lot to offer. We hope you can return to Lonesome Dove Retreat.

                            We thouroughly enjoyed our five week stay at Lonesome Dove. The location is convenient to Grapevine and Southlake as well as Route 114. Enjoyed the Texas decor and the cozy atmosphere. All ammenities were provided and we did not find any of our daily living needs that were not anticipated and provided for. Bed was very comfortable. We would reccommend Lonesome Dove without hesitation.

                            The Lonesome Dove Retreat was absolutely beautiful, relaxing, and equipped with everything you could possibly want. I had a girls weekend there and couldn't have asked for more. We had a great time. The house was close to Main Street but was on a quiet and rural street. Loved it!

                            The property was an excellent weekender! It was clean and comfortable and convenient to restaurants and downtown Grapevine, and very close to shopping at Southlake. We all fell in love with the charm of the downtown historic district - even though it was a festival atmosphere. Plans are being made for future trips. The only slight inconvenience we had was 5 women and 1 bathroom!

                            We had a wonderful time staying in Grapevine for our family mini vacation. The house was cozy & well decorated. The walk in shower with the "rain" shower head was relaxing, the beds were comfortable, and the hot tub was amazing. The kids loved playing in the back yard & we loved the quiet neighborhood. We spent the day at Meadowmere park (just 3 minutes from the house) swimming, flying kites, and playing in the sand. The only thing missing was access to the washer/dryer. Since we spent the day in the sand with 3 kids it would have been nice to have the option to throw everything in the washer when we got back to the house. Other than that we had an amazing time. If you're looking for a comfy, relaxing place to stay near lake Grapevine I would absolutely recommend Lonesome Dove Retreat. We loved it!

                            Charming little house that's close to just about everything in Grapevine. Big comfy beds, great rainfall shower head, and nice and hot hot tub. The decor was well picked for the house. Defiantly worth the cost. Will rent again next time in the area

                            Just got back from staying here during the spring Nascar races and, for having never done this before, was very pleased with our stay. The house is in a nice area and easy to get to. After an 8 hour drive we just kind of dropped in the living room before getting settled in. Very clean inside (and I'm pretty picky!) and complete with anything we may have forgotten (Advil.) Relaxed on the patio with a movie after having dinner in downtown Grapevine with a comp bottle of wine. We were in & out all weekend so didn't get to enjoy all the provided amenities, but it was nice to feel like we had a home away from home and not have to tote things into cramped hotels rooms or stay with family in a house that isn't nearly as updated and clean :) thank you for having us, we are sure to return again!

                          About the owner: This cottage has been in the family for over 30 years. After we built our cabin in the mountains we began to travel and enjoyed staying in VRBO homes. Instead of selling the house, we decided to share it with others who might be traveling to the Grapevine area. We enjoy meeting people from all parts of the country and welcome you to spend time at Lonesome Dove Retreat.

                          Why the Owner Chose Grapevine:
                          We chose the name Lonesome Dove Retreat because we are only 2 miles from the historic Lonesome Dove Baptist Church which was the first established church in the area in 1846. Author Larry McMurtry actually chose the name Lonesome Dove for his epic novel and mini-series after seeing a Lonesome Dove Church bus in the parking lot of a restaurant.

                          The Unique Benefits at this House:
                          Grapevine is a charming town with something for everyone. Whether it is shopping, sporting events or Texas Wine Trails Grapevine is sure to please. Our cozy cottage is tucked away from the hustle and bustle of the city, but it is close enough to the excitement of the DFW area to make it worth your stay. After a long day of shopping, touring the wineries or attending one of the area’s many sporting events, you can enjoy our patio and hot tub complete with a flat screen TV and gas grill.
