About Lori Davidson
I am a former Chicagoan, transplanted in the heart of Texas and LOVING it! For 10 years, this town is home to me and I am confident you will find much to enjoy in Waco as well. We live very close to the Haven at Chapel Ridge and are fond of this area. " The Haven" is perfect for a quick trip or for families needing an inviting place to stay while getting acclimated to the Waco area. This guest home is in the EXCELLENT Midway ISD (Independent School District). The children attend South Bosque Elementary School and River Valley Intermediate. As a teacher, I understand the value of location, location, location and this is IT!
Lori Davidson purchased this House in 2014
Why Lori Davidson chose Waco
This comfy home is ideally situated. In one direction, you can arrive at Baylor, downtown WACO, and HGTV's Chip and Joanna Gaines' Magnolia Market at the Silos within 15 minutes. In the other direction, you can venture to McGregor and visit Joanna Gaines' favorite spots, including the Cedar Chest Antique Mall and their vacation rental, the Magnolia House.
What makes this House unique
For Fixer Upper fans, I can give you the scoop on all things Fixer Upper so that you can make your visit to WACO a truly memorable one. Be sure to check out later episodes of Fixer Upper to see Chip and Joanna at The Cedar Chest. I have a booth there called LuluBelle's, seen a few times on the show.
100% refund if canceled at least 30 days before arrival date. 50% refund if canceled at least 14 days before arrival date.
If we could give this property 10 stars instead of five we would! Lori is the most hospitable landlady anybody could ever want to rent from! We could not have asked for a better property; the outdoor seating area was inviting and comfortable; the cobbler and ice cream that she provided was something we look forward to at the end of each day. The entire home is in great repair and well decorated! She absolutely thought of everything! We wanted for nothing! It addition to the property being stellar, Lorrie’s continuous follow-up was above and beyond! Thank you sooo much Lori!!!
The house was super clean, just as described. Waffle maker was great for a quick breakfast. Backyard was perfect for grilling steak. Beds were comfortable. Enjoyed our quick stay. *****
Like staying at a close Friends!
Our family of 5 immediately felt comfortable upon arriving at the Haven! We were in Waco for a 1/2 marathon my daughter was running. She did all the research for our rental and upon finding the great reviews, said this is where she wanted to stay. It felt like we were staying at a friends house. Lori's communication with us was beyond thorough and welcoming! The whole family voted to stay again our next visit. Only suggestion would be a little W-D 40 on the kitchen cabinet hinges:)

Very quiet Neighborhood and clean great place!
happy, cozy home
We fell in love with this home the first time we stayed here for one of my my daughters Family Weekend her freshman year at Baylor. We stayed here this weekend for her graduation from Baylor. We had two extra people this time, my grandbabies, and the house was the perfect place to stay. Lori even had a celebratory cake waiting for us! Her hospitality goes above and beyond. Thank you!!
My sister-in-law and I stayed at this lovely house overnight while visiting Waco and all things Magnolia. The house is about six miles from downtown Waco where the Silos are located. It's an easy drive. The property is a very cute two bedroom, two-bath and is decorated in the Magnolia style. It has a lovely fireplace (I would definitely consider staying there in the winter as well) and is scrupulously clean. The backyard is perfect -- very private, with a dining set and a lovely seating area with a fire pit. All that was great and I would give five stars just for that! However, this owner goes way above and beyond. I have stayed at many VRBO properties. None had the attention to detail that this property had. It has a true Texas hospitality vibe. There was Blue Bell ice cream in the freezer and a chocolate cake in the fridge, as well as fresh eggs from the homeowner's chickens! (I won't give out their names to protect their privacy...) Milk, bread, coffee and tea were also provided. There were toiletries in both bathrooms. The owner had thoughtfully provided take out menus and several brochures on other sights to see in the Waco area. The attention to detail was exceptional. We felt right at home as soon as we walked through the door. Don't think twice - if you're coming down to visit the Silos or Baylor University, this property would be a great option. I'd give it 10 stars!
