ENJOY THE GUEST HOUSE WITH HORSEBACK RIDING & CANOEING AT BRAZOS BLUFFS RANCH

Waco House Rental Photos and Description

1 king bedroom, 1 queen bedroom plus sleeping loft with 2 twin beds

The vacation cabin at Brazos Bluffs Ranch is a comfortable and beautiful log house for couples or the whole family who want a quiet get-a-way. This is the only guest house on our 200+ acre ranch.

Located 5 miles north of the Waco city limits and 10 miles from Baylor University but feels like you're in a state park.

Guests enjoy fishing, canoeing & kayaking in the Brazos River. We provide Canoes & Kayaks. House guests get a 20% discount for a guided horseback ride on the ranch.

See the photos of the aspen wood ceilings, granite counter tops, American elm wood floors, antler chandelier.

Propane BBQ grill provided!

The house is accessed by a private road through gated private property.

To look at the house you must call for a reservation and meet the owner at the property entrance.

There is not a telephone or TV in the house. Most cell phones have service in the house.

(No smoking on property)

Location Details: Brazos Bluffs Ranch is accessed from Halbert Lane through the Brazos De Dios Farm where the Homestead Heritage Craft Village is located.

This is a short drive to Baylor and the City of Waco.

The map on Yahoo is not correct. See the ranch website's map for directions.

You will need to call us before you come so we can provide directions to our ranch.

Horseback Riding: Brazos Bluffs Stables, LLC offers western horseback rides year-round along the Brazos River and on the rim of the overlooking chalk bluff plus miles of other scenic trails on our ranch. The ride is normally $40 per person but as a house renter you get 20% off!

Horses, tack and helmets are provided.

No experience is necessary.

For your comfort it's best to wear appropriate riding apparel: jeans or riding skirts and closed-toe shoes or riding boots. Most of the horses can carry a maximum of 225 - 250 lbs. up the steep hills. If you will need a larger horse, please mention that when you call for reservations.

River Pavilion: The ranch's 800 sq. ft. screened-in river pavilion and 1,330 sq. ft. deck (35' x 38') overlooking the Brazos River plain is an ideal place for family gatherings and business retreats.

We offer a volleyball net, horseshoe pits and a ping pong table for you to enjoy, along with an outdoor BBQ pit and gas grill for parties of any size.

The kitchen inside the pavilion includes a refrigerator and sink. The pavilion, deck and separate restrooms are all easily handicapped accessible.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Many thanks to all of the Brown family. We enjoyed the peaceful time we spent at your wonderful home. The beauty & craftsmanship of the cottage make it my favorite of places. The horse ride in the morning and the hike on the trail was a great blessing. Thanks again.

Our home away from home!

  • 5 of 5
We didnt want to stay in a hotel again so stayed here and will stay here for our next trips to Waco. Our kids, 16 and 11 prefer staying here and relaxing by the Brazos, hanging out on the front porch and taking walks. Sooo much nicer than stuffy hotel rooms! There are games, books and some every day supplies so you dont have to pick up the little things. We are looking forward to our next stay!

Fabulous!!

This is our second stay and we love it even more. Exceeded expectations, clean and very friendly family that runs this place. Enjoyed the quiet escape on the front porch, morning coffee and smores down by the pavilion. Swimming and wading were also a treat for our family. Highly recommend to you, your family or anyone wanting to slow things down a bit. Looking forward to our third trip.

This is a beautiful cabin in a beautiful place! Not your typical cabin! Everything there is of the highest quality. Interesting to tour all that Heritage Homestead has right down the road. The people there & owners were super nice. Would recommend this place to all!

Gorgeous Retreat

  • 5 of 5
I brought my daughter and friend for a long weekend to tour Baylor and SMU. We were so impressed with this cabin that we are looking forward to future trips. It's the perfect place to unplug and relax. The cabin was spotless, and the furnishings all comfortable. We loved the rocking chairs on the front porch, large family table and the cozy loft. The bedrooms both had super comfy beds and great linens. While we had a rainy day weekend and couldn't take advantage of the stables or kayaking, the sound of the rain in this gorgeous cabin made for a perfect spot to read, relax and enjoy family time. Looking forward to taking the rest of the family and enjoying the area.

So Peaceful!

  • 5 of 5
When you lean back on the comfortable living room sofa and gaze out the loft windows, you get the feeling you're in Colorado or New Mexico.

This is our third stay and I'm already looking forward to the next. We live less than ten minutes away, but the change of scenery makes it seem like we traveled hours.

We came looking for rest, reading and just being together undisturbed--and had a wonderful time--again.

Thank you!
