Everything’s blooming in Garden Manor B and B in Grapevine, Texas

Garden Manor

Garden Manor Bed and Breakfast

If location is the most important factor in successful real estate, Garden Manor is a clear winner in Grapevine, Texas. It’s the only bed and breakfast in town and perfectly situated less than a block from restaurants, art galleries, more than 80 unique shops, and wine tasting rooms in the historic Main Street district.  The vintage train station and historical museum are an easy walk away.

More important is the endearing ambience that radiates from four guest rooms and the friendliness of owner/hostess Judy Dusek.  Each room is tastefully decorated with a garden theme—Country French, Classic, Cottage, Colonial West Indies, or English Rose–and includes a private bath with antique claw foot or Jacuzzi tub.  Flat screen televisions are hidden in period armoires.

When the original 1913 house was taken down to the slab in 2002 and transformed into a bed and breakfast, Dusek wanted to use as much of the original material as possible.  The result is an inn that blends country charm with modern amenities. It is defined by cheerful verandas, authentic moldings and transoms, and plank wood floors.  A warmly receptive dining room reminiscent of grandma’s home and living room with inviting fireplace suggest you tarry awhile.

After finishing the renovation, Dusek undertook 10 major landscaping projects to enhance the property.  The lovely backyard Rose Garden features a gazebo, dance floor, and sound system that makes a perfect venue for weddings and special celebrations.

Breakfast, served on a meticulously set table, is a culinary delight of omelets, biscuits, bacon, fresh fruit, and more—served on your schedule.  Dusek cooks all the food, even buffet meals or decorative cakes for special events.  Almost every weekend is scheduled from April through October, but Dusek loves the activity.  “It’s been wonderful,” she says.  “There’s no downside; the inn didn’t disappoint.”
