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.

Wonderful Experience

This was our most pleasant accommodation experience in the United States. The atmosphere was second to none. The room was extremely clean with an abundance of in-room features. Everything worked well wich included the tv, bathroom, spa, lighting and heater just to name a few features. There was more than enough towels, soap shampoo etc. Extremely clean. The hosts treated us like family and were only ever too happy to help us with anything. This included directions to restaurants, tourist attractions and the best way to get to places. The breakfast was just beyond exceptional. The quantity of food was never ending and our hosts were doing everything to get our 3 breakfasts individualized and perfect for us all. We can't wait to go back.

Great place!

This is a great bed and breakfast to stay. We have stayed at White Rock Creek a few times over the years. Somehow they always remember who we are. We have always loved staying at White Rock Creek.

Perfect Waco Retreat

The couple who run the B&B are so friendly and gracious. We had everything we needed. We stayed in the Plantation Suite and had everything we needed...except more time to stay.

Great place to stay!

We only were able to stay one night, and wish we could have stayed longer. Dana and Retha were excellent hosts. They made sure the guests got all they could out of the area. We stayed in the Carolina, which was a perfect size for us for the night. It was really easy to get into Waco, and the area it is in is gorgeous.
