House was exactly as photos show, perfect fit for our family. Frances was a very accommodating and met us upon arrival to show us around. All the beds were very comfortable. We will stay again if ever in the area.

Quiet, safe and nice area. Close to Homestead Heratige Village and The National Mammoth Museum

  • 4 of 5

The Owner is very nice and helpful. The home is very quite and in a nice looking safe area. The Beds were extremely comfortable and we had everything we could possibly need provided. She even has a nice wooden kiddy table our little toddler loved. The house has a nice big deck with no covering (but some shaded by trees) a hot tub and electric Grill. Most of the Acres are more wooded but we had little ones who didn't need to go too far from the house anyway. Roads are more private and good for walks. The only reason I didn't give the property 5 stars is because we had a toddler on this trip and this home is filled with what knots and decor. We spent a lot of time keeping him out of things when we were there and we couldn't let him go in the yard because there isn't a fence between the yard and the more wooded area. I would stay there with older kids or adults again. My best description is that it feels like a home that has been loved and lived in and filled with memories....like that "at home feeling" when visiting Grandmas house (if your from the south). This was our second year to visit Waco. These are absolutely excellent attractions and Must sees: Homestead Heritage Village...it's an all day experience!! Magnolia Market, (all day) The National Mammoth Monument Museum ( half day), Mayborn Museum (all day), Dr. pepper Museum ( all day), Texas rangers Museum ( all Day), Cameron Oark Zoo ( all day) Harps Design ( 1 hour), you can drive to Magnolia B& B and Jimmy Don's metal Signs JDH designs ( both outside of Waco) as for eating: Jakes Texas Tea House (awesome atmosphere and fun but very limited hours!), Ninfa's Mexican is excellent! Food trucks at Magnolia are excellent! Shopping: Magnolia Market, Clint Harp Design, Spice Village are the only places we have had time to shop so far. Pretty much everything closes at 4,5 or 6pm as far as attractions listed above.

A welcoming home. Very clean and comfortable. Truly a home away from home.

  • 5 of 5

I would recommend this home. It is on 3 acres, and is very quiet. It has plenty of comfortable seating, and a wonderful deck outside. It's a great place to stay with family and friends.
