We stayed at Thornton Inn after our wedding and were very impressed! The room was so nice and big and the bed was very comfy! It was very clean and quiet. Breakfast was amazing as well! Terry made us breakfast burritos and fresh fruit and bacon. He even gave us a little bottle of champagne for mimosas. He was so sweet and told us all the history of the house. I was overall very impressed with the service and will absolutely be back to visit for a longer stay.
My husband and I decided last minute to stay over night and called Alla! She always treats us like family! Husband and I have stayed at Allas multiple times. This bnb is our home away from home!! Husband is a history buff and loves all the antiques. I love the warm atmosphere and the AMAZING European organic breakfast! You MUST try it! Alla makes everything from scratch! Alla and Rick make the stay at their bnb as comfortable as possible!!
We had such a wonderful day/night at Alla's Historical Bed and Breakfast in Duncanville, Tx. She is such a high spirited woman and the history in the home was amazing. It was a very inviting and comfortable experience. ¿ The food was delicious and organic. I was only able to take a couple pictures before my phone died. I missed my hubby so much and this is exactly what we needed. Thank you for everything.
This is my second one week stay at Alla's and it feels like coming to visit old friends. Alla and Rick are very welcoming and hospitable. The rooms are very comfortable, cozy, and quiet. My room had a private bath which was a huge bonus! The delicious organic breakfast was made by Alla and chickens roaming in the backyard supplied our fresh eggs. Shopping is very close and Dallas is only minutes away. Alla's Historical Bed & Breakfast will always be the place I stay whenever I'm in town and where I would recommend to all my friends and family.
My husband and I went to Alla's for our honeymoon, upon arrival Alla was so welcoming and outgoing, Alla and her husband Rick make you feel right at home and are so funny. The house has a beautiful large porch to enjoy and inside is filled with very beautiful antiques, we stayed in mama pelts room and the bed is so comfortable. We can't wait to stay at Alla's a second time in the near future.
This was our second visit to Alla's! It's our favorite bed and breakfast! The organic breakfast was out of this world!! Alla and Rick are such fun and interesting people! We had a great time playing with the chickens! The cabana hot tub was so relaxing! We are looking forward to our next visit! Mama Pelts room was so comfy, we had our delicious breakfast and fell asleep until noon! That is just how wonderful it is here!!
We decided to visit Allas B&B for a girls weekend. From the moment we arrived we were treated like family. Alla gives great attention to every detail. The house is decorated with many period pieces so it is like traveling through time. The beds are amazingly comfortable. The wine was delicious and the company was refreshing. Make sure you get Allas organic breakfast. By far the best breakfast I have ever had. She has all of her beautiful chickens in the back, so you know the eggs are fresh!!
Terry and Sunny are wonderful guests. The restored house is beautiful. Nicely located close to DFW and downtown, but far enough not to have the traffic. Breakfast were good and Terry will try his best accommodate your needs.
The owners were extremely nice and made sure we had everything we needed. Terry did a great job on breakfast each morning. This was an all around great stay and will definitely go back when in the area.
Alla is a true joy to be around! As soon as we pulled up to the bed and breakfast, Alla greeted us on the front porch with a warm hug and made us feel right at home. The tour of the property was very interesting and the rooms were beautiful. Alla has the most interesting stories and had us laughing and smiling the whole time. Her breakfast was delicious and the spa package is a must. We will definitely be back soon!
Stayed at Thornton Inn for the first time while in town for the Cowboys game. The folks who run it are awesome. The home is beautiful and the room was perfect. They were so gracious and exceeded my every expectation. My ex-wife and I used to travel a lot when she worked for an airline and we always stayed and a B&B when it was available. That is how I got hooked on trying to find them whenever I travel. Have even stayed at some in Italy and France while abroad. Have never been to one nicer or with nicer people. I really enjoyed sitting and talking to the folks there as they felt like family. I felt like I was at my aunt or uncles house visiting. Sounds strange, but, that is what it felt like. Was really made to feel at home. Did not hear a sound at night and slept great in a huge comfortable bed. Although I an not a decorating type, the decor, including the architecture at the Inn was great and fit the house well. My room was beautiful and had an old time feel with modern amenities. Breakfast the next morning was fabulous. The fruit was the best, I especially liked the raspberries and i remember good coffee. I realize that I am going on and on, however, I could keep going because as I type, I am remembering other reasons that I liked the place. Although it was stormy while I was in town and not good weather, I cannot wait until my next trip so I can sit out on that huge porch. I would recommend that anyone and everyone stay here and see for yourself. Will Ray
We stayed at the Thornton Inn for two nights. We were both pleasantly surprised! The home was quaint and well decorated. The rooms were spacious and nicely decorated. The beds were like sleeping on a cloud!!! The hosts were very charming and accommodating in every way, making sure we had plenty to eat. We will stay here again on our next trip to Dallas!!!
My husband surprised me for my birthday. We truly enjoyed the hospitality and the breakfast. We relaxed in the hot tub and we enjoyed looking at all the wonderful antiques. Rick and Alla were very energetic and funny.
The atmosphere was very pleasant. I felt like I was at home. Our host Rick and Alla were informative of the historical collections they accumulated over the many years. The selection of breakfast was impressive from a Continental to an organic one. It was nice to sit amount the strangers and become friends. I didn't want to part. I recommend this gorgeous down to earth bed and breakfast to anyone that wants to share a special moment with their loved one.
I joined some friends for a weekend stay at the Thornton Inn. It was a great experience. The facility is beautiful and spotlessly clean. There are multiple common areas for gathering and socializing--the best of which is the spacious front porch. The hosts are amazing and made us feel as if the Inn were our own home. I could not have hoped for a better experience and I will be back.
Terry and Sunny are incredible! Their warmth, willingness to invite you into what Sunny says is, "your home away from home" and genuine concern for your comfort is amazing. We look forward to coming to Arlington now because we know we'll be staying with the Grahams!
My boyfriend and I enjoyed our stay at Alla's. Alla and her husband greeted us at the door and were awesome hosts. They really took care of us. The property is beautiful, its filled with beautiful antiques and history mostly over 100 years old. We enjoyed the tour of the property and we really felt at home. We stayed in the Red Room, which was beautiful and very romantic. We had everything we needed just in case we forgot something. We only stayed one night, but it was the perfect getaway that we needed nestled right in Duncanville. We had the American breakfast which was very delicious and filling. Please visit this wonderful place, you wont be disappointed
Great place to just get away for a relaxing weekend or use for your business stay in the Dallas/Arlington area. Very nice owners, safe part of town, good restaurants nearby, shuttle to AT&T Stadium just a neat place to spend some down time. Sit on the front porch and rock the evening away with a nice glass of wine. pat and dan
Staying at Alla's is like visiting you favorite Aunt's house. She greets you at the door, shows you around the lovely historic home, then its wine and snacks at the kitchen table while you check in. Alla and her husband Rick are fantastic hosts and seems to have a genuine interest in their guests lives. The rooms are comfortable, and the rear garden is quiet and charming. Our dinner was served by candlelight outside, and breakfast was served at the kitchen table, with lots of good coffee and conversation. We highly recommend you order her meals. They are wonderfully flavorful, generously portioned, and always made from scratch. We will definitely be going back the next time I need some time away from my busy life.
Everything about this place exceeded my expectations. It was clean, comfortable, and perfectly situation near the Cowboys, Rangers, Six Flags and UT Arlington. The staff was so friendly and the food was outstanding. I enjoyed breakfast with other guests, but when my schedule meant I was by myself the owner came to chat with me, and I enjoyed that very much. I will be back, this was a business trip and I fully intend to return on vacation.
After being greeted on the beautiful wrap around porch with a huge open-armed hug from Alla, our hostess, we were wisped inside by Rick, Alla's husband. Rick, an avid antique collector and curator, he gave us the tour of his amazing antique room and explained all about the different gadgets. It was truly remarkable. As someone who grew up in Duncanville, we had no idea that this little slice of peace was nestled in and couldn't wait to see what else was to come. Our room was amazing! Beautiful four poster ornate bed with red satin comforter adorned, amazing antique furniture, and the prettiest wooded writing desk I've ever seen! I especially loved all the "extras" that Alla lays out for her guests just in case they forgot to pack something. She really does think of everything! After our tour of the grounds, we settled in for dinner, and returned back for tea on the patio into the late hours of the night before enjoying our private Jacuzzi time, equipped with a romantic bottle of wine imported from Italy, a photo session, and soothing aromatherapy salts. Waking up to the King breakfast was truly a treat. In the dining room, we sipped coffee from Germany and ate fresh organic fruits, eggs, bacon, organic potatoes, fresh crepes with fresh fruit, and homemade jams and orange juice. We'll go back for sure, and it couldn't be soon enough!!
Had a great time staying at Alla's bed and breakfast! My best friend and I were looking for a good getaway in town and this was the perfect place to go! The service was great , we truly felt at home! We will definitely be returning !
I surprised my GF with an overnight at Allah's bed and breakfast. It was simply amazing! Allah made us feel right at home is a lovely and gracious host. I have already recommended her B&B to a few friends. The house has interesting antiques throughout and the breakfast she prepared was delicious!! A+ experience.
We received a Christmas gift of three nights at Alla's with 3 dinners, 3 breakfasts, and trips to the hot tub/spa. Alla is a wonderful hostess and the B&B is charming. We immediately felt at home, warmly welcomed by Alla. The food is outstanding and creative. The dishes were all European in style and presentation. They were simply delicious and the servings were huge. Although Alla typically cooks "privately" so she can concentrate on preparation, we did spend a bit of time with her in the kitchen. The ingredients were all fresh and prepared carefully. Clearly she takes great pride in her service. The Pelt house is interesting with period antiques throughout and a nice collection of antique music boxes. Also, every light bulb in the house is antique Edison. What a wonderful warm glow they cast throughout. For our first night, we enjoyed our special dinner in the dining room, but after that, we were so comfortable that we asked to be served in the kitchen with everyone sitting around enjoying the lively conversation and warmth of company. At our invitation, her husband, Rick, joined us throughout our visit at mealtime. He is curator for a new antique musical museum that is soon to open. His descriptions and stories were interesting and informative. I'm looking forward to visiting the museum with more than 400 exhibits in the near future. We had a wonderful visit and look forward to joining Alla again. Donna and I highly recommend a visit to Alla's B&B. Room prices all are very reasonable so just pick one. Do be sure to order the dinners. The food is outstanding!
We really enjoyed our stay here! The breakfast was fit for a king! Will definitely stay here again when we are in the area. The owners were a pleasure to visit with and the rooms were extremely clean and comfortable.
Alla's B&B was a dream! My husband and I felt right at home the moment we walked in and received a warm welcoming embrace from Alla. It was as if we had known her for years the way she loved on us. Her historical home had antiques from around the world! We shared dinner from a nearby Italian restaurant that provided FREE delivery to the B&B. The hot tub was lovely. Our bed very comfortable and breakfast, oh the breakfast was delicious!!! We will definitely be back to our "home away from home."
