Charming Cabin Near Deep Ellum & Fair Park

Hey, have you heard? It’s hot outside, which leaves most of us dreaming of cooler climates like the mountains or the beach or anything near water or possibly a glacier.

Unfortunately, that’s not always on the itinerary because of work, commitments, and lack of bags of cash. The good news is, you can still get away and enjoy the cool comforts of someone else’s A/C.

Check out this handful of Airbnbs we handpicked for their unique look, location and again, the opportunity to enjoy cooler temps inside not-your-house.

Charming Cabin Near Deep Ellum and Fair Park

Escape the city in a real live cabin (pictured above). Conveniently located less than a gas tank away in Urbandale in Southeast Dallas.

Why It Made The List: It’s out there, but like near here and Superhost Grady said the cabin is “Crafted from pine felled and hand-planed in Boone, N.C.” New rule: If you use the word “felled,” you’re going to make the list.

Knox-Henderson Townhome

So, you’re on the fence about downsizing. You’ve gotten used to living with the space around you as it was when the kids were still at home (although it’s a little more organized and a lot less sticky now). But maybe you’re not ready to live in a high-rise, or maybe the idea of a patio home in the suburbs isn’t your thing. 

For those who want to pare down a bit without losing easy access to their favorite Dallas-area amenities, this townhome near Knox-Henderson — our Inwood National Bank Home of the Week — is the perfect solution.

“This property gives an owner the ability to enjoy urban living in the heart of Dallas without sacrificing on square footage or garage space, with two private yards and three patios at an attractive price,” notes Rustin Smith, listing agent for 2627 N. Garrett Ave. “Dallas is at your fingertips, whether you want to walk to the restaurants and shops of Knox-Henderson, take a short drive downtown, or bike the Katy Trail. Being a few blocks from North Central Expressway makes accessing all the city has to offer easy and quick.”

Twenty windows — that’s how much natural light you can soak in if you end up unable to resist this incredible urban townhome. Apparently, some lucky buyer out there felt the same way and just snatched up this listing repped by Compass agent Mohammed Jaber. It’s not difficult to see why, as this week’s Inwood National Bank Home of the Week has near-universal appeal for pretty much half of homebuyers in Dallas.

“The townhouse appeals to today’s buyer because of its open and ‘loft-like’ floor plan,” Jaber notes about this end-unit townhome — an absolute bargain. “It’s especially attractive to the younger professional buyer who wants to be in a large open space.”
