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.

Very very quiet here!

4.0 on February 15, 2018

We stayed in the Shenandoah Suite. It was very spacious so there was plenty of room to put suitcases and other traveling bags. The bed is super soft because they put an eggshell foam topper on it. The room has a love seat in front of a gas fireplace. It also has a small table with 2 chairs. A potent air freshener was used in the room but after a few minutes we got used to it and it was fine. Breakfast was fresh fruit and yogurt + cinnamon bread stuffed French toast. It was very good. The driveway and entrance were a little tricky to find but there was visible signage so we found it ok. No traffic noise here.

We had a wonderful stay at the Bed and Breakfast on White Rock Creek - Dana and Retha were wonderful hosts and made us feel right at home like we have known them for years. Highly recommend staying here.

Stayed for two nights while visiting Waco and were very pleased with the accommodations. Room was clean and well prepared. Breakfast was very good, and the hosts were excellent.


Lovely retreat outside of Waco

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.
