Property Details

Farmhouse, 4 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 3 Baths, (Sleeps 8-12)

Our spacious 2400 sq. foot home is nestled in a grove of elm, oak and native pecan trees. Relax on our back porch and look out over a small pond with ducks and pastures with cows grazing. Although we're located less than 15 minutes from Baylor, Homestead Heritage, The Dr. Pepper Museum, Waco Mammoth Sight, Cameron Park Zoo, Waco Airport and many other places, our 30 acre farm gives a peaceful, rural atmosphere. Between the porch and the pond we have a small rock lined pit for roasting hot dogs (weather permitting). We also have two rope swings for the kids.

We purchased this home in the Spring of 2006 and moved it onto our property. (We live walking distance from the house) We completely remodeled the entire house over the next 2 years and added extra rooms. We opened up in the Fall of '08. Each bedroom has a queen size bed and we provide soft, all cotton linens. All the bedrooms have lamps on both sides of the bed. The Suite, Room A and Room B have ample floor space if you want extra space for children to sleep.

The bathroom in the Suite has a large, fully tiled shower, a toilet and sink with lots of counter area. Rooms B and C share a bathroom which include a bathtub and tiled shower, a toilet and sink. The bathroom in Room A has a small fully tiled shower a toilet and small sink area. All of the bathrooms are well stocked with thick cotton bath towels, hand towels and wash cloths. We also provide shampoo and soap.

Enjoy the spacious living room area which includes comfortable seating for 6 plus dining area for 10. There's also a small dining table in the Suite which can seat 3 more people. The kitchen is stocked with coffee, various teas, hot chocolate, sugar and creamers. The kitchen is equipped with a full size refrigerator/freezer, a smooth top electric range, double electric ovens, a counter top convection oven, a pop toaster, coffee pot and microwave. We have dishes for twelve + pots and pans and various cooking utensils. The Suite area also has a small kitchenette-sink, coffee pot, microwave, mini refrigerator and pop toaster. We also have a full size washer and dryer with detergent and softener provided + 2 irons and ironing boards. We do have High Speed Internet (WiFi), but we DO NOT HAVE TELEVISIONS.

Space for the family and all the little extras

  • 5 of 5
We booked this vacation rental for a Baylor Law graduation we were attending and had a wonderful stay. It was the first time traveling with our 8 month old baby girl and the VR was perfect for us. The house has a crib that we used and the floor plan allowed us to lay our daughter down while enjoying time with the family without concern for waking her. This would never have been possible in a hotel. The manager "Grace" was so helpful and easy to work with when making the accommodations. Our stay was so enjoyable and we are already thinking about when we can book our next stay.

Peace and Quite

  • 5 of 5
We had come to Waco for our niece's wedding and were just looking for a place where we could stay and all of us be together. What a pleasant surprise Brazos Oaks turned out to be, as it far exceeded expectations... clean, spacious, well-equipped, beautifully appointed, and well maintained! And did I mention.. peace and quite! Everyone enjoyed the deck. My granddaughter and I enjoyed watching the ducks, the sheep and their dogs. And she would want to tell the other kids that may stay here to check out the rope swings. Thank you, so much, for the weekend. I won't be our last!

Baylor Graduation

  • 5 of 5
This property was perfect for my family to be for attending my son's graduation from Baylor. I was very impressed in how comfortable we were plus the amount of space it had. My family were all able to get ready for graduation without any problems, there were plenty of mirrors, restrooms, electrical plugs and etc to make it on time without a problem. I wished I could of stayed longer to relax by the back porch where it was so peaceful and spacious. Great place for family or a couple.

Wonderful vacation rental for large family.

  • 5 of 5
I rented the whole house for our family and extended family to gather for our daughter's wedding in Waco. The home exceeded our expectations from the website description. The home is large and spacious with great large common areas where we spent many hours laughing and enjoying each other's company. Grace has the home very comfortably appointed--the beds are comfortable, and the linens are thick and comfy. The A/C kept the house cool even during the 100+ degree temps in late June. We enjoyed the large deck on the back of the house, watching the sheep graze in the pasture, and one night we built a fire in the fire pit to roast marshmallows for s'mores. The evenings were warm, but we enjoyed watching the fireflies from the deck as well. An added bonus we found is Homestead Heritage Village a few miles up the road. We truly enjoyed browsing the exquisite handmade crafts and especially enjoyed our visits to Brazos Valley Cheese, learning about their processes for crafting some of the most amazing cheeses we've ever tasted. The home feels rural, but is close to Waco shopping and Baylor University. I am looking forward to staying at Brazos B & B again soon and I highly recommend it.
