I had the honor of staying at The Homestead during a shoot recently, and let me just preface this review by saying: WOW! What a gem of a place! Mary Kay and Chet were absolutely fabulous hosts, always greeting us with a smile and a helping hand while putting up with our early call times and long shoot days. The rooms were all comfortable, and the food was delicious. If you ever find yourself in the lovely city of Plano, definitely give The Homestead a try! I look forward to coming back soon.
