Cozy comfort with a large private bedroom, one bathroom and an open living room and kitchen. A multi-purpose room provides laundry appliances and plenty of extra space as an office, study or guest room.
This not-so-big house is simply splendid for an individual or couple. The house can also easily accommodate up to five guests for shorter stays.
The location is perfect. The award-winning ten acre Grapevine Botanical Garden is directly across the street. Lighted tennis courts (two blocks), historic Nash Farm (two blocks) and an abundance of shopping and dining on Main Street (three blocks).
A whole-house renovation was completed in February 2012 including new furniture throughout, new housewares, new central HVAC, new on-demand or “tankless” water heater, wood floors, spray foam insulation and so much more.
The bedroom features plenty of storage with an expanded wardrobe-style closet.
The black and white tiled bathroom has a large shower and pedestal sink.
With the queen size sleeper sofa in the living room and the convertible over-sized chair in the multi-purpose room the cottage sleeps a total of five guests.
The large kitchen opens to the living room. A pub-style dining table and tall stools offer up a cozy at-home dining option. Slide to the side when not in use.
There is clear parking for two vehicles. Nothing fancy.
Adjacent to the cottage is nice pergola with a table, chairs and double glider. A charcoal grill is nearby for outdoor cooking. And there are a couple of rocking chairs on the front porch!
The cottage is close to pretty much everything! Ten minutes from DFW International Airport; five minutes to the Gaylord Texan; five minutes to Great Wolf Lodge; seven minutes to Grapevine Mills Mall; ten minutes to Southlake Town Square. If you drive like a Texan then downtown Fort Worth and downtown Dallas are twenty minutes away.
Visiting and traveling medical professionals such as PTs, RNs and MDs save ten percent on all rate levels.

About the owner: The owners live on-site, enjoy traveling and camping, own a couple of frisky wiener dogs and tend to spend a lot of time tending to the landscaping around the house. Say 'Hi' if you see them wandering around.
Why the Owner Chose Grapevine: In fact, the owners lived in the cottage while building their award-winning LEED-Platinum 'green' home next door. After moving in to the new house, they kept the cottage for family and friends. After a total renovation, they have opened the cottage for others to enjoy.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage: Need a ride to and from the airport? We can help. Dining and shopping recommendations? Oh, yeah. Miss your garden back home? You can dig in our dirt! Local gossip? What have YOU heard?
Also, do you like 'green' building and construction? If you are interested in in this sort of thing they might give you a tour or their award-winning home!
