The SpaceGorgeous, custom, hand-built cottage tucked in the woods on a private 30 acre horse farm right in the middle of Horse Country USA. The Cottage is most suitable and comfortable for 1 to 4 adults. The Cottage is not suitable for very young children. Older, well behaved children are welcome. BonTerra Farm is listed on the National Register of Historic Places for a pottery kiln (Roark-Griffith kiln) in operation from mid 1800s to 1904. The farm is just 9 miles east of Denton, Tx. and 45 minutes north of downtown Dallas. We raise Irish Sport horses on the farm and have 2 large, friendly dogs.
There are 2 beds, one full size bed in a separate room with doors and one queen size bed set off from the living area (no doors). 2 half baths with shower between. QPremium cotton, high thread count linens, a choice of down or alternative pillows, 100% cotton towels and fresh ground dark roast coffee, creamer, chocolates are always available. Delicious cinnamon rolls, oranges and fresh apples are included. Occasionally, farm fresh eggs are available if you let me know in advance. As an option, for a nominal fee, I would be happy to shop for a specific list to stock in the cottage for your arrival. Also available are iron/board, hair dryer and 'I Forgot' baskets with various sundries. The kitchen is nicely equipped with full size fridge, stove top (NO OVEN), microwave, blender, coffee maker, kettle and toaster. Plates, glassware, utensils and pots and pans are included. The living area has a cozy vent-less fireplace and concealed flat screen tv, dvd player, cd player and eclectic collection of music & movies. A lovely screened porch looks out into the woods and nearby creek. The 2 sets of french doors can be opened to expand the living space and enjoy the wonderful sounds of nature. There is a fire pit with plenty of firewood and a charcoal grill (bring charcoal). The farm is very wooded and secluded with a creek that runs through the length of the property. There is an abundance of bird and wildlife to enjoy as well as peace and quiet.
Our dogs, Sam and Buckshot, handle our guests with grace and reserve, but in the interest of their comfort and well being as well as the horses', we cannot accept dogs or other pets. Thank you for respecting our policy.
Since we are close to the UNT and TWU campuses, the Cottage is perfect for visiting professors or parents who prefer a more personal alternative to hotel accommodations. Romantic retreats, girls' or guys' get-togethers, de-stress escapes (mani/pedis, facials and massages can be arranged close by), base camp for adventures in hiking, biking, treasure hunting, exploring new places, restaurants and just plain getting away are all excellent reasons for booking a stay at The Cottage.
This is a private, beautiful, quiet place in the country yet not far from the hip cultural events & eateries in Denton or urban bustle of Dallas, Plano, Frisco & Lewisville.
Restaurants very nearby:
The Prairie House: BBQ, home cooking, steaks
Villa Grande: Mexican
Mom's On Main: Home cooking
