Bed and Breakfast on White Rock Creek

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


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.

Lovely retreat outside of Waco

4.0 on December 24, 2017

Retha and Dana have created a home away from home 10 minutes from downtown Waco. The rooms are tastefully decorated and clean with close parking. Breakfast was wonderful. It was obvious that through the years Retha and Dana have developed an extended family of returning guests. White Rock Creek will be on our list to revisit when the opportunity arises.

Lovely find!

Perfect weekend escape

We were delighted with our stay. The room was spacious and beautiful. The picture online looked vintage so we thought the bathroom might be small, but it was huge. Plenty of space for luggage, so hearth area stayed relaxing. The mini fridge was a nice surprise, too. Pleasant area for a quiet morning walk. The breakfast was outstanding. We were so well fed we didn't need lunch. Large and small tables in the dining room give the option of visiting with other guests or not. We loved it and can't wait to stay again.

Great getaway in Waco

We stayed one night. Overall, it was what I expected. The host and hostess were very friendly. The suite was very clean and comfortable. The Southwest Breakfast Casserole was amazing! I wished that the portions were a little larger, but I'm used to big breakfasts. It was a nice stay.

Great getaway for some rejuvenation !
