Bed and Breakfast on White Rock Creek

267 Ruby Dell Lane , Waco, TX 76705 USA (Show map)

About

Our bed & breakfast rest in a peaceful country setting graced by pecan, oak, and other native trees along the banks of White Rock Creek. Nestled in this small hidden valley is an opportunity to retreat, rest, and relax. Walk the many trails that flow through the tranquil wooded landscape, stop at the balcony which overlooks the rain-filled swimming hole, hide on a bench in the shadows of a hundred-year-old pecan tree, or just sit beside the fireplace with a good book.

Waco Weekend

A friend and I stayed at the bed and breakfast this last weekend and we couldn't have been more happy with the experience. Our room was so cute and inviting! We went to breakfast both mornings and it was nothing less than delicious with great company. Would definitely stay there again!


Great place I highly recommend!

Four couples (3 sisters, a brother, and our spouses) in my family chose White Rock Creek as our lodging for some getaway time together. It exceeded our expectations in comfort, food, and joy shared by the owners! Dana and Retha were top notch hosts who love to share the blessings the Lord has given them! We hope to return.


Birthday Getaway

Retha and Dana were excellent hosts. The breakfasts were good and the room provided us a place to relax and enjoy ourselves. Dana was great in giving directions to things around Waco. Both were friendly and helpful. It was nice to share breakfast with both Texas and international couples
