About Greg & Doris
Greg and Doris have enjoyed hosting guests in their next-door rental home for the past 10 years. Avid gardeners and remodelers, they have poured great effort into making the house a relaxing and enjoyable place to stay. Having done extensive international travel themselves, they understand the little touches that make for a comfortable visit.
Greg & Doris purchased this House in 1998
Why Greg & Doris chose Lynnhurst
Having lived next door for over 30 years, we had considered buying the home for family member use at various times, but then had an opportunity when the neighbors were suddenly transferred out of town for business. We targeted the house specifically for international and corporate relocation families, and have developed some great continuing friendships with our guests. Being right next door, it has been very convenient for us to attend to the property and assist guests when needed.
What makes this House unique
Spacious home, great for wedding parties, family or friends reunions, business groups. Mixture of comfortable modern ranch layout, with classic woodwork & coved ceilings.

Truly a Parkway Beauty.
Beautiful property with all the amenities any group could ask for. Greg and Doris were responsive to all of o questions and provided everything needed for an enjoyable stay. Would highly recommend for any group looking for a relaxing stay.
Very clean house with everything we needed for our ladies weekend! Location makes it so easy to get around!
One of the best we’ve ever stayed at!
The owners had the house stocked with absolutely everything we could have ever needed. It was very clean and well organized. Loved the location and quiet neighborhood. Would definitely stay there again and recommend for large families. There were 10 of us and we were all very comfortable.
Thanks for your comments - we’ve really enjoyed the large family and friends groups who are able to be together but also spread out in the different areas of the home.

Loved the charming Parkway Beauty! Would definitely return.
Everything was immaculate when we arrived for our girls' weekend. Have never seen such a well-stocked kitchen of dishes, silverware, cookware, etc. The location was great with convenient parking. Look forward to a return stay!
Glad you enjoyed it! We’ve had a lot of women’s groups, and they have really enjoyed the quiet neighborhood and Parkway greenery.
Very clean, all the amenities you need.
Charming house, very clean, and a great location. $10 Uber & Lyft to Downtown, MOA, & Airport.
We’re glad you enjoyed your visit! The combination of being centrally located to key attractions of the metro area while being in a very quiet, green part of town make it a great place to be.
it was a wonderful stay
the greatest gift the owners of this very lovely home have for their guests is in how thoughtful they are for their guests. Yes.... coffee beans fresh and wonderful We did not need to scramble to go out for a cup when it was very bitterly cold. Their care shows up in many lovely details that make this home truly a home away from home. The house was toasty warm though outside was seriously cold!!!!
we are looking to returning next year!!!!
