Here is our first review from Sarah, on Airbnb-

“What an amazing weekend!! Brett was very welcoming, accommodating and friendly. When we arrived Brett was there to greet us and the house was all ready to go! He took the time to show us around and let us ask any questions about the house and the area! The living room has a super comfy couch, perfect for watching football with friends. The bathroom was very clean and spacious loaded with fresh towels. The kitchen was fully stocked with everything you could need. The two queen beds were perfect for the 4 of us and to top it off they were very comfy! The outdoor area was even awesome! The house has a porch with a table and chairs. Perfects for fall evenings! Brett was nice enough to make us a fire to enjoy once the sun set and the air cooled down! The neighborhood is stunning and if we would have had more time would have loved to go on a long walk and look at all the beautiful homes! This house is also very close to Cameron Park and the Zoo which could make for a very fun weekend or trip! Basically, this house was the PERFECT game day weekend house for us and our friends! We will absolutely be going back and staying here! ”

Waco recently voted 3rd best place to visit in Texas!

Nice peaceful setting, great location

  • 5 of 5

Peaceful, almost park-like setting. At end of street. Very quiet. In Cameron Park, so there are walking/biking trails and beautiful overlooks of the Brazos River. George was a great host. Very comfortable home - beds, towels. It was great for a college girlfriends getaway. Close to everything we wanted to do - restaurants, Magnolia, Heritage Farm, Armstrong-Browning Library at Baylor.

Very comfortable, clean, convenient and accommodating!

  • 5 of 5

Simply wonderful. We stayed here for our son's college graduation. We had other family members in a nearby hotel. We used this cottage for a place to gather for meals and evening games and sitting around the fire pit. The kitchen was well stocked and Brett made sure we had everything we needed. This would be a perfect weekend get away, or a place to stay for a Baylor game, or visit to Magnolia. It is a great place to walk, jog or bike since it is literally in Cameron Park. Our family loved it!

Amazing girls weekend!

  • 5 of 5

This house is a little jewel box. Everything you could possibly need is there. The owner said to just bring your toothbrush and he was right, even the refrigerator was packed with goodies. Great outdoor front porch that we used for enjoying margaritas and a neat fire pit nearby.

It is so close to Cameron park that you just walk up the lane. You could spend a whole day just exploring near the house, hiking, biking or just walking the many trails.

The owner also gave us great ideas on where to go and what to do and made us feel at home. I can't think of any way it could have been better! I highly recommend this to anyone that would like a safe, peaceful place to stay.

Fantastic Location!

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful home in a beautiful location. Brett was so welcoming. Our flight was delayed getting into Waco and he stayed up late to greet us. Everything you could ask for is already in the house. My daughter and I wanted to visit the Magnolia Silo shops and see the other sites of Waco. This house is located close to everything. Brett was great about making suggestions for things to see and great places to eat. The setting in Cameron Park is so pretty and peaceful and quiet. My daughter and I had a wonderful time in Waco and when we return we will definately stay at this beautiful cottage.

Owner's Response: Lora and Lauren, Thank you so much for this favorable review! So glad you had a good time, despite getting in late and dancing around the downpours of biblical proportions! You both are fantastic guests and would love to see you back on your next trip! Thanks again, Brett

From the Owner

One of the most beautiful locations between Dallas and Austin. Surrounded by over 400 acres of some of the most beautiful vistas in Texas... Cameron Park (the second largest urban park in the country, 2nd only to Central Park in New York City). Cameron Park is simply stunning anytime of the year.

Nearest Airport : Waco Regional Airport at 5 Miles Nearest Golf : Cottonwood Creek at 5 Miles Car: recommended

Awesome, freestanding house that sleeps 6. Just remodeled. Has everything you expect in a 5 star BnB. In beautiful, secluded Cameron Park. Just 2.5 miles and 5 min down University Parks Dr. to McLane Stadium. Huge brick fire pit seats up to 20 people. 3 patio areas just right for quiet and solitude or even large corporate events, weddings, receptions.

On the beautiful grounds of Aynesworth Manor. 2.5 acres of luxury. Huge fire pit for late night party after another Baylor victory!

The Neighborhood- This is one of the most beautiful and sought after neighborhoods between Dallas and Austin. Nature walks along the Brazos River, through Cameron Park's world famous hike and bike trails, fabulous Cameron Park Zoo, Brazos River, Cameron Park Clubhouse, well-known 18 hole disc golf course, Jacob's Ladder climbing, Lover's Leap, and Miss Nellie's Pretty Place are just moments away... Easy access to Baylor, McLane Stadium, Waco Regional Tennis Center, McLennan Community College, and just about any area in Greater Waco. Extremely secluded, yet in the middle of town, thanks to being in the largest city park in the country after

Plenty of parking on site up to 50 cars possible for large corportate events or weddings.

This is a luxury mansion in one of the more upscale neighborhoods between Dallas and Austin. Appropriate behavior is expected and required. No pets. No indoor smoking.

From the Owner

Extremely secluded in the midst of huge Cameron Park. No light pollution... it feels like you are in the country, yet you are just 2 miles or 5 minutes from most of the reasons why people visit Waco (Baylor, "Fixer Upper" Magnolia Silos Market, Downtown Waco, Mammoth Museum, McLennan Community College, Waco Regional Tennis Center, Cameron Park mountain bike races, and triathlons. Super high end furnishings with leather sofas and chairs, cherry furniture, sterling silver, crystal, and new sumptuous bath towels, cooking supplies and unique Maxi-Bar © concept- when a regular mini-bar just won't do!
