Reviewed 7 September 2011

We stayed here on August 12th 2011 to celebrate our 40 anniversary. We're an active couple for 59 and we travel a lot professionally. We have stayed in numerous BnBs across the US. We live only 35 miles away in Denton so have a good handle on what is available in Dallas and Fort Worth.

We looked at the others like the Bailey Inn, The Corinthian, and the Daisy Polk and we kept coming back to this one. The reviews were simply too good to ignore.

Let me just say we weren't disappointed. Kay and her husband made us feel very welcome without being intrusive. The moment my wife stepped in the first word she stated was "elegant". That's not a word my wife says very often. She's pretty jaded and a place has to have a certain "wow" factor for her to make such a statement.

Let me describe this place. The structure in a three story Tuscan/Mediterranean style that is very impressive. There is only one suite, but very private. Basically one enters through an electric gate, walks down a portico on the first floor and one enters a large room with an adjacent courtyard with lovely covered patio table and a small fountain. The attention to the little things is what really sets this suite apart. Technically it is only one room with a fireplace, a connecting vanity room, and the toilet and shower connected to that.

One kingsize bed, a fireplace, one whole wall full of books, and numerous tourist information and maps if one needs them. The room is actually about the size of a suite at the Embassy Suites.

One has a great view of the downtown skyline. About four blocks east of the main McKinney thoroughfare in the State and Allen area. It has a tapas bar right next door and several dining options within easy walking distance.

This is in the middle of the most dynamic area of Dallas in Uptown and yet it feels like an urban hideaway.

Kay fixed a great eggs benedict for breakfast the next morning and was a most gracious host.

This truly is a great little hideaway and worth every penny but less than the upscale hotels in the area. I wouldn't come back to any BnB other than this one in Dallas. We've been spoiled.

We will definitely be back and recommending this place as a great getaway to our friends.

This place is just about perfect.

Great location in the center of it all - yet it was very tranquil and relaxing.
Highly recommend it for a day or a week.

Of the dozen or so small B&Bs Trip Advisor has found me in as many countries the Guesthouse on Allen Street has to be at the top. The owner, Kay, has really thought of everything - the attention to detail is quite staggering! This spacious comfortable room has everything you could need - the bed is as comfortable as everyone else has said, the home-cooked breakfasts are delicious, the whole place is spotless, the towels and robes are as fluffy as can be, and the little touches give it an extra little something. Its location, in Dallas's Arts District, came as a very pleasant surprise as well. All in all I can't recommend this B&B highly enough and hope to return soon.

This B&B is the BEST by far that we have ever been to!!! The location was near the downtown arts district and not too far from fair park so we didn't have a long commute. The room was so elegant and quiet for a peaceful nights sleep. I am in LOVE with the bed and pillows!!!! If you plan to stay in Dallas you must stay here and enjoy a romantic night with your spouse. Also, the breakfast was impecable and arrived with a smile from Mrs. Kay. She greets you with a smile and provides superb service. Highly recommended!!!

If you are traveling to Dallas for business or pleasure or if you are searching for a romantic escape for two, reserve this guesthouse. As I entered the guest suite, I was pleasantly welcomed by soothing colors, wonderful linens, a fireplace, library and well-appointed bath area. The innkeeper spoils her guests with afternon refreshment-served in the suite or the private rose garden, and then starts the day with delicious silver-tray breakfast service. Spacious and cozy at the same time. What a find!
