Denton Couple Reviving Historic Victorian Home To Operate As Bed
When the historic house at 815 N. Locust St., now known as The Brownlow House, went on sale in 2020, Whitney and Cuong Mai knew the time had come to start and run their own bed-and-breakfast.
When Whitney Mai first saw the historic house at 815 N. Locust St. listed online nine years ago, she and her now-husband, Cuong, were fresh out of college and not in a position to purchase a commercial space. But when Mai noticed it for sale again two years ago, they decided to pull the trigger on the Victorian home and transform it into an eclectic bed-and-breakfast and destination wedding venue known as The Brownlow House.
Purchased by the Mais in February 2020, the 3,900-square-foot home, built in 1912, had operated as a bed-and-breakfast, The Heritage Inns, for more than two decades under former owner Donna Morris, Whitney said. It was part of a sprawling three-property B& B suite and venue made up of the house at 815 and the two next door, which are now Giuseppes Italian Restaurant and Home Instead Senior Care, respectively. Another owner bought the property and owned it for seven years before selling to the Mais.
But the plan wasnt always to make the house on Locust a B& B. Mais mother, Laurel Dewell, is an interior designer who helped Whitneys grandmother design her home. When Dewells mother died two summers ago, she did not want the pieces that had been so carefully curated and cared for to be sold at garage sales.
