Loved it!!! Everything we needed!!!

  • 5 of 5

We truly enjoyed our stay in the guesthouse! We found it just as described and seen in pictures. Very comfortable and clean and well-stocked with everything we needed for our stay. The owners have payed great attention to detail inside the guesthouse which made our stay wonderful. The "bucket list" and other list of suggestions for places to eat/things to do in the area was also very helpful. Thanks for everything!!!

Wonderful accomodations!!!

  • 5 of 5

We could not believe how inviting the Etch House was, it had everything we needed. The accomodations felt safe and were very comfortable. We would defintly return if we make another trip back to Texas. I fell in love with their cow "Twirl". If you are looking for a place to stay that is not your normal hotel this is worth checking out, you will not be disappointed.

Amazing! Perfect stay!

  • 5 of 5

The location was amazing. We were able to go back and forth may times in a day, without the drive eating up our day! The Echt House was extremely comfortable and relaxing! It had everything we needed and was very clean. They have a bucket list for WACO that is super helpful and fun. We were able to do half of them in 3 days. Chris was super helpful from the time we booked, he even helped with some amazing suggestions on places to visit and hike! Thank you Krosschell family for the amazing experience!

Lovely, quaint, relaxing little guest house. Perfect for a weekend getaway.

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this guest house! It had everything we needed, and nothing more. The owners paid much attention to detail when stocking it with the necessary items for a comfortable stay, but for a small space, it doesn't seem crowded or cluttered. It was homey, clean, and inviting. It's located in a secluded country setting, with a cute outside sitting area and view of the pastures. We heard owls hooting each night and saw some roadrunners :-) The home is located very close to the Homestead Heritage community and craft village, which was a fantastic place to visit. It's about 15 minutes from Waco, the Silos, and many other attractions. There is much to be done here in a weekend, and this home will give you the perfect place to rest and rejuvenate between your travels. We would highly recommend it to anyone!
