One of 2 Black Dog Cottage rooms available, The Mollie Room has a comfy queen bed, TV with Netflix and lots of cable stations, table for working or reading, big leather chair, and lots of room. Private bath. Our bird-filled yard is a National Wildlife Federation backyard habitat. We're in historic Ardmore, near a park with walking and running paths and tennis courts, and within minutes of I-40, two hospitals, and lots of shopping. Minutes from downtown. Safe parking inside our gated property.
A cozy getaway in the heart of town. Minutes from the center of town, we're right off both 1-40s, and near shopping malls and two hospitals. You’ll feel at home in our home in the Ardmore Historic District.
If you like dogs, our two pups Chance and Shug—both trained by inmates at a Humane Society program in the local prison—will give you lots of canine affection. (If dogs aren't big on your list, they'll leave you alone.)
In the morning, we always have a pot of coffee on in the kitchen, and you can help yourself to a hot cup of joe and a glass of juice.
Our comfortable, spacious queen bedroom is named in memory of Mollie, one of our beloved pets. In the “Mollie Room,” you’ll have ample space to stretch out and relax, sit and read in a cozy corner, with bureau and closet space. Amenities include WiFi, TV and coffeemaker in your room. Private bathroom is right across the hall.
But don’t confine yourself to your room! Enjoy the whole house, where you’re welcome to use our kitchen, peaceful library, art-filled dining room, and windowed sun room. In nice weather, you’ll enjoy the screened porch and the backyard deck and patio by the pond. This is a peaceful, beautiful hideaway tucked right in town. And you’ll have plenty of space for parking inside our gates.
Interaction with guests
We will be on the premises, but will respect your privacy, and won’t use the upstairs while you’re staying with us.
