  • Introduction

    Dowell House c1870 - McKinney, Texas, front view Located in a spacious, Federal/Classical style home built in 1870, where much of the original "Benji" movie was filmed, Dowell House has a rich history and an elegant ambiance to share with you. Step back into an era when life was genteel and slow. Linger over a full, fresh, candlelight breakfast served with china, crystal and silver in the formal dining room. Relax, and have that second cup of coffee or sip tea in the sunroom or on the deck. Explore McKinney's old Town Square with its many art galleries, wine boutiques, restaurants, and antique shops. Drive along quaint streets lined with turn-of-the-century homes; or enjoy one of the many historical museums and sites in the area, yet be close to the many fine restaurants and shopping facilities in the metropolitan Dallas/Fort Worth area.

    We provide double occupancy accommodations in charming rooms, all with queen-sized beds and private baths. All rooms are individually heated and air-conditioned. Each room is furnished with toiletries, in-room coffee makers, hair dryers, TV/DVD, and fluffy terry bathrobes. For the convenience of our business traveling guests, each room also has a desk work area.
