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.

Nice owners and spacious rooms

4.0 on April 11, 2018

Owners were very nice and welcoming. Breakfast was good. Room was spacious. For the price, would have thought there would be better quality amenities like outside furniture and toiletries. Furniture outside was wire patio furniture and all cleaning supplies and work supplies are left out, takes away from the relaxing environment . Toiletries were half used bottles of vo5. Towels weren’t good quality. The little details were missed that could make it a nicer better quality stay.

Enjoyed our stay. Would definitely return. The room a little worn--but know it is hard to keep up such a large establishment.

Birthday Weekend in Waco

This was more than we hoped for - a calm oasis in the midst of our lives. If you need to breakaway from the pressure cooker this is great place to do it. The proprietors, Dana and Retha, are an inspiration. We will definitely be heading back there when we need a physical, spiritual and just a break from the rat race! Great folks, great environment!!

Quiet, peaceful, nature setting

Hosts were gracious and interesting conversationalists. Rooms were private and surrounded by nature. Jacuzzi was awesome.

A pleasantly surprising find only minutes away from Waco

My wife and I were married in Waco few weekends ago, and I had been looking for an unique and special place to begin our honeymoon. I decided to book a suite at White Rock Creek, and I am happy to write that my expectations were very much exceeded at this wonderful B&B! If you are looking for a quiet, peaceful place away from the bustle of Houston/DFW/Austin, I highly recommend this B&B. I would also like to add that despite its feeling of being out-of-way, White Rock Creek is only few minutes away from I-35 with easy directions. We will definitely be back again.

We had a very lovely stay in the most comfortable fluffy bed with awesome sheets! The atmosphere was very idyllic. Don’t hesitate to book!

Definitely Coming Back!

My husband and I stayed in the Plantation Suite for three nights, including our wedding night! As newlyweds, we were SO excited to stay just outside of Waco, but still only 15 minutes away from the city. The place was beautiful and the owners, Retha and Dana, are super welcoming and so nice! Dana cooking breakfast in the mornings was DELICIOUS! Even my picky eater husband ate his cooking! I have and will continue to recommend this lovely little place for couples (only one bed so I wouldn't recommend any families). LOVE LOVE LOVE!!!

Great place to stay.

My husband and I weren't expecting much from a B&B in Waco, Texas - but this is hands down one of the best places I have ever stayed. Good price, good room, nice and quiet over-looking trees. She even dropped off our breakfast in the small fridge in the room when our room was cleaned, which was tasty and let us have a nice, slow morning.

Reetha and Dana were outstanding hosts. Extremely friendly and helpful with information about Waco, Magnolia, and the area. Good luck with the remodel/addition to the main building!

Had a great time of R&R

My wife and I spent our anniversary in the Plantation Room. The host and hostess were very friendly and helpful. The room was awesome. Loved the fireplace and very comfortable bed. The property was nice and enjoyed a few walks we had.
