About the property

Great home that's 2 bedroom 1 bathroom. Sleeps 4

Historical home, circa 1905, built by one of the area's lumber tycoons after Frisco was established by the railroad in 1902. Beautifully original, yet updated with modern conveniences and antique quality furnishings that add to its turn of the century charm. Two bedrooms and one bath will comfortably sleep four with a spacious private backyard to enjoy the Texas sun.

The home is fully furnished with full size appliances including a washer and dryer. All modern amenities including a wonderful ball and claw tub with a shower kit. The kitchen is stocked with everything a cook could want. All linens, towels, and coffee are provided. We assure you a relaxing stay and will accommodate most special requests. We are sure you will love this home and area as much as we do.

Beautiful house and great loaction.

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed this 100 year old home very much. Stayed in it for three months. Nice neighbors. Close to shopping, we walked in Hope Park which is only five minutes away, many excellent restaurants in the area, with several only two blocks away. We were ten minutes away from our grandchildren who called it the Christmas House. They loved it as much as we did.

Will definitely consider renting it again next Christmas once our travel plans are finalized.

Great stay in downtown Frisco

  • 5 of 5

I've never been in Frisco...maybe driven through it. I had no idea what a nice place downtown Frisco is, and this charming little house is just a couple of blocks off of main street. My wife and I stayed here for a couple of nights for Edgefest, which took place at the Toyota Stadium, just a 20 minute walk away. The accommodations couldn't have been better. Andrea's communication was great, the house was comfortable and well equipped, and we couldn't have been happier. Thanks for a great time.
