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.

Birthday Getaway

4.6 on October 24, 2016

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

Nice Place in Waco

Nice little B&B. A little ornate and overdone for my taste. Breakfast was excellent. Nice folks.

We feel blessed

We feel blessed after visiting this Bed and Breakfast. We don't get our family together often enough and when we decided to go to Waco, we looked for a pace to stay that we all liked. So glad we found the Bed and Breakfast on White Rock Creek. Such fun with Dana and Retha. Thanks for your kindness and hospitality.

The owners were very easy to work with when there was a confusion on reservation. The room was beautifully decorated and was very romantic. The owners were very kind in offering things to do and places to eat. The owners and guest at breakfast were very friendly. The only suggestion that I could make that would have made the stay any better was maybe add something unique to the breakfast.

Loved this B&B.

We loved the separate, private buildings apart from the main house. The innkeepers were great and recommended a great tour of Waco. The breakfasts were wonderful. Lee & Terry

Such a fun girly get-away--lots to do in Waco!

The place was clean, well kept up and what you see in the photos is what you get. Dana and Retha are great people who are very attentive of your needs and make accommodations for any situation you may have. The food was terrific HOMEMADE BREAKFAST. And the location is just far enough away from all of the hustle an bustle that you feel you are deep in the woods. But you are really 10 minutes from anywhere in Waco you would want to be. We will definitely be back.
