Wonderful Cottage and Great Host
My wife and I had a wonderful stay at the Cottage. It is cozy, quaint, clean and very comfortable. It's in a great location, close to Magnolia Market, Cameron Park and downtown area. You have privacy and feel tucked away at the end of the day. Elizabeth and David were great Host and we loved meeting Margaret (their 4 year old daughter), she was one of the highlights of our trip. We would highly recommend the Cottage and would stay there again without hesitation. Also, do the Waco Tour, there is a flier in the Cottage. It is well worth the money and we were given a discount because we mentioned the flier. One of the best tours we've ever done.
Thank you, Elizabeth and David
Beautiful quiant place
The cottage was well presented. It was clean and ready for our visit. The surround grounds were beautifully landscaped. If the opportunity arises we would choose this wonderful peaceful place again. Thanks to Elizabeth and David, such warm and welcoming people.
Great experience wonderful hosts. Close to all Waco attractions.
We hope to stay again sometime.
Cameron Cottage was wonderful for celebrating our anniversary in Waco. It gave us a comfortable place to eat, sleep, and relax. It's an easy drive from all things Magnolia. Thanks to our hosts for the accommodations as well as the conversations. We enjoyed our time there.
Quiet stay near great running trails
Great stay. Loved the peacefulness and easy access to Cameron Park. Will definitely come back again.
We really enjoyed our stay at the cottage! It is in a great location with an added bonus of an attached fenced yard for those of us who travel with our dogs. The cottage itself is nicely laid out and has pretty much everything you might need for a visit. And, as another reviewer stated, the furnace does work well! If the weather allows, take the short walk to Cameron Park--it is well worth the time and effort! Thank you, Elizabeth, for offering this cute cottage for travelers looking to not stay at a hotel!
You're so welcome--loved having y'all stay with us!
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.
