Come stay in our Cameron Park guesthouse! Built in 1925, the property has been lovingly restored. Walk the grounds, or walk one block to Cameron Park itself for kayaking, biking, etc. 4 minutes from NEW Baylor Stadium; 6 minutes from Ferrell Center.
Fabulous space for couples or small families. Great for Baylor events; 5 minutes from campus. Enjoy all the amenities of Cameron Park.
The area is wonderful for walkers and runners.
We're two Baylor professors with flexible schedules. Happy to host you & give you all the inside information about Waco--places to eat, stores, downtown, Baylor, etc.
Wonderful old, historic neighborhood; originally developed in the 1920s as a prime location near the 'new' Cameron Park.
One private bedroom, with queen bed, sleeps 2. One high-quality inflatable bed can be made up in the living area; perfect for kids. Can sleep up to 4 people.
Pets possibly allowed inside, depending on size and training. We do have a full outside dog kennel, with running water, where all pets are unreservedly welcome to stay. Also a fully fenced backyard.
I'm a Baylor professor and mother of 3 children--ages 11, 9 and 2. I've lived in Waco since 2002 and in this house since 2008. We absolutely love Cameron Park, and think you will too!
Elizabeth Corey purchased this cottage in 2008
Very accommodating owners. First time staying in Waco. Cottage was clean and well appointed. Temperature dropped over 45 degrees overnight and heating system handled it great. Thanks for the stay.
My friend & I met in Waco for a fun few days. The cottage is nice, but the bathroom is very tiny. The shower is super small, very cramped. I would definitely recommend this place for 2 people, but probably no more than that. The bed was comfortable.
The owners of the house were so accommodating, and very nice and friendly.
The cottage was a terrific oasis during our weekend in Waco! Despite being close to everything, it is quiet and offers all the comforts of home. Owners are sincere when they offer you to enjoy their property as if it is your own. You won't be disappointed by choosing to stay here during your time in Waco.
The cottage was very lovely and sits on beautiful grounds. Elizabeth and her family are very warm and gracious! Only spent one night, but it was wonderful stay!
Another great visit to Waco and this place is our favorite. We stay here whenever it is available when we come to Waco. Very central location. This cottage is very comfortable and so much better than a hotel room. Thanks again Elizabeth.
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.
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.
