Great location
100% of recent guests gave the location a 5-star rating.
This dedicated guest space is in the River Oaks neighborhood, just off of S. 14th and Sylvan, the center of Abilene. While attached to a home, this mother-in-law suite has dedicated parking spaces (with room for a trailer), a porch, a private entrance, and self-check-in.

The suite was built in 2018 and has what a traveler needs: a queen bed, seating area, kitchenette with refrigerator and microwave, and a new bathroom (with a separate toilet room). If you want to exercise by walking or running through our neighborhood, we have wide, paved, tree-lined streets. The neighborhood homes are authentic mid-century and becoming more updated by the day.

Deirdre is a transplant to Texas and Jeff is a native. We remodeled and decorated our houses ourselves and treasure each part. We enjoy sharing them with travelers who also appreciate the little details and a comfortable, boutique stay. After living in Dallas for a dozen years (and suffering years of one-way, hour-long commutes) upon our move to Abilene we decided to live in an area as centrally located as possible: we wanted to be close to everything. We love our neighborhood because it is established, safe, and has trees. MANY, many pecan trees. If you visit in season you can pick up fresh pecans off the street. Deirdre is a former Latin instructor and current property manager and owner of Curated Stays. She usually has AirPods in and is listening to an audio book or podcast while caring for guests and homes. Weekends will find her with her friends scavenging estate sales and tag sales for treasures. Jeff is usually downtown where he serves as the Executive Director of Frontier Texas, a local history museum. Our four children have flown the coop. Three sons and a DIL live in Moscow, Idaho and attend or have matriculated from New Saint Andrews College. Our daughter and her husband live in Phoenix, Arizona. Deirdre visits them all as frequently as possible.
