We just can't say enough nice things about our stay at the Cotton Palace. Beautiful, gracious accomodations, outstanding breakfast meal, delightful hosts and attention to every detail. Visiting there with friends felt like being at home only without a care in the world. We highly recommend the Cotton Palace in Waco!

Waco is home and with a growing family, our own house would not accommodate everyone. We were fortunate to find Cotton Palace B&B available for our entire family to enjoy the comforts of a real home during Thanksgiving holiday. Oh! what a perfect setting. Wonderful breakfasts, spacious and comfortable bedrooms, delightful guests to visit with and room for everyone in one location. We'll do this again!

This home is spectacular with a unique warm southern charm.Our bedroom was large, had great beds and pillows. Delicious home made cookies all over the place. There is a large sitting room and living room for sitting and enjoying time with your friends or other guests. Breakfasts are over the top. It's worth going to Waco just to stay here.

Stayed here many times. Always outstanding. The last visit was a reunion with classmates. The property is very accomodating for a small group gathering and was very much like entertaining in your own home. Highly recommend

This is one incredible place to stay in Waco! The Cotton Palace is quiet, clean, and superbly decorated! The breakfast shared with the other guests in the morning is always VERY delicious! The care given to the guests is impeccable complete with fresh baked cookies awaiting all times of day and night. What a treat of a place to stay!

You are drawn in from the first moment you walk into the door. A lovely, beautifully restored home that is spacious , inviting and restful. A true getaway for some serious R & R. Whether sitting in the living room by the fireplace reading and surrounded by beautiful music, sitting on the sun porch with a big screen TV or rocking on the front porch watching the activity on a tree-lined street, one is transported into another world for a short time. It is elegant yet cozy and comforting. Becky provides first class service, comfortable bedding and a gourmet breakfast that wraps the day like a large bow on top of a wonderful gift . And not to be missed is the experience of a short but unforgetable moment as Dutch serves you breakfast . He loves all who pass through the doors and you leave with a friend beyond description. Becky has created an experience beyond any other B & B that I have experienced.

From the initial phone contact for information to the farewell at the end of the stay, Beckie and family made us feel at home and as if we were family. Four traveling brothers found the perfect refuge away from home. Beautifully decorated home, very clean rooms, comfortable beds, fresh towels and a delicious breakfast added exceedingly to this years Grand Lodge experience. Always desiring to help others, I find that I must keep this treasure a secret!

Stayed there during Thanksgiving weekend. Host is very friendly and hospitable. Innkeeper was very accommodating. Room was a good value which included a jacuzzi tub, coffee and cookies. Location is central for museums and Baylor. Home cooked hot breakfast was delicious. Loved the french toast.

What an incredible venue. From phone directions to informative maps and movie time schedules, Mat, Dutch and Becky went above and beyond the limits of exceeding expectations. The cleanliness of the room and the amenities--homemade cookies and beverages at you fingertips at all times were exceptional. Breakfast was stellar and Dutch should not be missed---I want to be his "fan". The homemade biscuits just melted in my mouth and the egg dish, bacon and fresh fruit kept me fueled all day. We had a great time shopping the unique stores and boutiques in the area and visiting the area museums, (free tickets to the Sports Museum, compliments of our host- - who is a sports legend himself--the former, much admired baseball coach at Baylor University). The experience: Top Shelf!
