Perfect spot for family of four

  • 5 of 5

We had just one night in Waco, but this was far better than a hotel chain. The cottage was clean, charming and well stocked. The owner's yard and property were so nice, especially the backyard and all the butterflies we saw down the rock stairs. Perfect location for all Waco has to offer.

The property is lovely and located adjacent to Cameron Park, very close to the Brazos. Looking forward to another stay later in Fall.

Perfect for a girls' weekend trip

  • 5 of 5

This was a surprise birthday celebration for a sweet friend. Being all single moms, it was nice to get away for a night without the kids and enjoy Waco's attractions. This cottage was adorable!! Mrs. Elizabeth had the place clean and ready for us with great instructions and food/attraction suggestions. It was great - very peaceful. Absolutely planning another trip with our moms now. Thanks so much for making this girl's trip possible and memorable!!!!!

Absolutely amazing!!

  • 5 of 5

This was honestly the cutest cottage ever! You can tell it is very old and gives it a more charming feeling. The owners were so easy to work with and gave us lots of space and privacy. I have no complaints about this place and my experience. I am a Baylor graduate and my husband and I just wanted a few days to get away and relax and this was the perfect place to do that. It was near everything: Campus, Magnolia Market, downtown, Heritage Homestead. Hands down this was a fabulous place and we had an amazing and restful time!

Map

Nearest Airport
8 Miles
Waco
Car: necessary

Cameron Park is within walking distance, about 2 blocks away, and you can get there easily on foot. There should be maps (as well as other information about Waco) in the basket in the dining room.

Walking: Just across the street from our driveway, in the Methodist Children’s home. Nice and quiet, hilly campus.

Or, go to Cameron Park. Walk out our driveway, turn right and go down the hill to Lindsey Hollow. Turn left; you’ll see an intersecting street with white gates. It’s blocked off, but walk down it and you’ll get to Proctor Springs. Keep going straight and you’ll follow a path into the heart of the park, and to the river. There are playgrounds and trails. All beautiful.

Or, visit the fabulous Cameron Park Zoo.

Outdoor Waco, on University Parks, rents kayaks & bikes. www.outdoorwaco.com

HEB is our local, excellent grocery store, and it has multiple locations nearby.

There is a Laundromat on 18th Street (Take Herring to 18th, turn right, and it will be on your left).

Magnolia and The Findery are fun shopping downtown. Cameron Trading Company has antiques, and is on Austin Avenue. Papillon is at 1025 Austin Avenue and has nice antiques and decor. Show and Tell Antiques is expensive but in a grand old historic house and worth a look at 1525 Morrow, near Harp Design, also on 15th.

Restaurant suggestions?

Try Bangkok Royal, downtown, for great Thai food.

Burgers: Dubl-R (on Herring and 18th St.) or Health Camp (on the Circle).

Kitok’s (on 18th) is also great—be sure to order the “Oriental Fries.”

Fancy, expensive steakhouse: Diamondback’s, on Franklin near University Parks. Also a bar, Cricket’s, and Mexican, Ninfa’s.

Lots of Food Trucks at University Parks and Franklin. Selections include BBQ, Indian, Cupcakes.

Great Mexican dive, in a converted Pizza Hut: take Herring to 19th, follow it 5 minutes until you pass the HEB; just next to Dairy Queen is “Taqueria Mexicana” or some such name. Fantastic Tortilla Soup & often margarita specials.

There’s also a Torchy’s Tacos, which is great, on 5th Street near Baylor.

Manny’s on the River: New, clean place on the Brazos for good quality Tex-Mex. Go watch the sunset! On Martin Luther King Drive, about 2 minutes from our house.

Two fun local bars/pubs: Barnett’s, downtown, and the Dancing Bear, near Baylor.

Good lunch place/coffee shop: Lula Jane's, on Elm (across the river in East Waco) and Dichotomy, downtown serves coffee AND cocktails. Thus the name.

Just further down from Lula Jane’s is Tony De Maria’s—great, authentic BBQ. But go early, as they sell out fast—usually by noon.

Baylor campus coffee shop: Common Grounds.

Really neat place out on Gholson Road, Homestead Heritage. Check it out on the web for more details; they make cheese, pottery, furniture, etc. and have a wonderful restaurant. They also offer HORSEBACK RIDING, as one of our guests found out!

The Waco Farmer’s Market is downtown on Saturdays from 9-1. Lots of fun stuff there.
