Thanks for such a wonderful stay!

We had a wonderful time at this lovely B&B in McKinney, TX. We watched the sun come up in the hot tub on the upstairs deck, followed by a scrumptious breakfast. Every possible need seems to have been thought of. We’ll definitely stay there again next time we’re in the Dallas area.


Top Notch!

Our stay was top notch! There aren't many B & B's that would earn that rating from us. From the moment we arrived we were attended to and made to feel like it was the most special of days. Every detail is thought of in addition to beautiful rooms and amenities. The hot tub on the secluded deck is fabulous! Thank you for a great memory!


Charming B and B

Had a lovely 2 night stay at Dowell House. Throughly enjoyed the company of Fred and Diane. Breakfast was delicious. Only "complaint" was the over abundance of scents throughout the house from a variety of air fresheners,candles and perhaps cleaning supplies.


Great B&B!

I just completed my stay and was very pleased. The stay was very quiet and relaxing. It was very nice to escape the city for a night. The hot tub was a tad small, but felt wonderful to take a soak on a crisp night. Breakfast was a french toast souffle, and it was amazing!!
