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!

Great space, perfect location!

  • 4 of 5

Elizabeth was wonderful and has a delightful set up on her property. The cottage is behind the main house but a large hedge makes it nice and private. Close to everything, even the silos! Our trips into town were about 15 min or less every time. Elizabeth also offered suggestions for food/activities that were so helpful! The only downside was the Internet. My phone never picked up the server and my computer which did ran extremely slowly. Other than that it was the perfect place to come back to each night!

Beautiful Retreat

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is lovely and quite comfortable; its setting provides peace and tranquility. My husband and I truly enjoyed our stay here. The only downside is that the shower is small, but the water pressure and temperature were great!

Would recommend this cottage 100 percent!

  • 5 of 5

Anyone in need of some downtime, head to this hidden treasure of a cottage. My husband and two dogs have stayed here for the third time in under 2 years and each time we are more excited to come back. Not only are the grounds peaceful and beautiful, the downtown area is located within a few miles. There is so much fun to be had within a close proximity such as the Cameron Park Zoo, Dr. Pepper Museum, the Suspension Bridge and The River Walk. And of course Magnolia Silos, Market, and Bakery. Well, there is so much more and the property owners are more than happy and accommodating (also very kind) to lend advice to shops and restaurants and fun activities for adults and kids. I rate this cottage a TEN on every level.

Beautiful, so green and peaceful, cottage located in a great area and close to everything we needed

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was quaint and historic, I felt like I was there 200 years ago. All necessary items needed were there. We really enjoyed specific and helpful instructions left for us that included where to visit and eat.we are from California and if we ever get to come back we would check into this cottage again! 👍🏼

Cozy guest house close to so much!

Perfect stop on our way home from the Gulf. The guest house was so relaxing and comfortable. Easy walk to Cameron Park and just minutes from Magnolia Market. Wish we had stayed more than one night!

Nearest Airport
8 Miles
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.

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.
