Just the Best!
This was a return visit and it was still the best. The area is quiet and convenient. We're already planning next year's return.
Nice place, good privacy.
The owners were very nice and informative. Cute little place, close to downtown.
A great stay
Over all this cottage was a very cozy place to stay for summer. And had a very good price. I really recommend this stay!
Cute and comfy!
We loved our stay here at the Historic Cottage in Cameron Park! It was lovely, and so comfortable! If we ever head back that way again, we will certainly book again!
What a wonderful property! It's was the perfect spot to stay and enjoy the attractions around Waco. Thank you for sharing your beautiful and welcoming cottage!
Excellent Property in a Great Location
My wife, our dog and I stayed at the cottage in Early April. The cottage is ideally located in close proximity to all of the major attractions of the Waco area. Cameron park is minutes away and from the cottage, one could walk the river walkway into downtown Waco and into the Baylor University campus. Magnolia attractions are all within 15 minutes of the cottage location. The cottage is to the rear of the owners home. Elizabeth and David were very accommodating and helpful. There is a ton of up to date Waco area information in the cottage. The cottage was as described in the listing on the website. All the appliances that we used worked perfectly. Cable TV and Wi-Fi performed flawlessly. The a/c worked great during our stay (temperature in Waco was 89 degrees on the day we arrived).There is no washer and dryer in the cottage (as stated in the listing) but coin operated laundromats are within 2-3 miles of the cottage. The neighborhood is very quiet and the beds are very comfortable and offered both my wife and I a great night's sleep. The cottage was very clean on the day we arrived. The cottage was perfect for us. I think it would also work out great for a small family. I strongly recommend the cottage as a rental for my fellow Home Away members visiting the Waco area.
Cameron Park is within walking distance, about 2 blocks away, and you can get there easily on foot. There should be maps (as well as other information about Waco) in the basket in the dining room.
Walking: Just across the street from our driveway, in the Methodist Children’s home. Nice and quiet, hilly campus.
Or, go to Cameron Park. Walk out our driveway, turn right and go down the hill to Lindsey Hollow. Turn left; you’ll see an intersecting street with white gates. It’s blocked off, but walk down it and you’ll get to Proctor Springs. Keep going straight and you’ll follow a path into the heart of the park, and to the river. There are playgrounds and trails. All beautiful.
Or, visit the fabulous Cameron Park Zoo.
Outdoor Waco, on University Parks, rents kayaks & bikes. www.outdoorwaco.com
HEB is our local, excellent grocery store, and it has multiple locations nearby.
There is a Laundromat on 18th Street (Take Herring to 18th, turn right, and it will be on your left).
Magnolia and The Findery are fun shopping downtown. Cameron Trading Company has antiques, and is on Austin Avenue. Papillon is at 1025 Austin Avenue and has nice antiques and decor. Show and Tell Antiques is expensive but in a grand old historic house and worth a look at 1525 Morrow, near Harp Design, also on 15th.
Try Bangkok Royal, downtown, for great Thai food.
Burgers: Dubl-R (on Herring and 18th St.) or Health Camp (on the Circle).
Kitok’s (on 18th) is also great—be sure to order the “Oriental Fries.”
Fancy, expensive steakhouse: Diamondback’s, on Franklin near University Parks. Also a bar, Cricket’s, and Mexican, Ninfa’s.
Lots of Food Trucks at University Parks and Franklin. Selections include BBQ, Indian, Cupcakes.
Great Mexican dive, in a converted Pizza Hut: take Herring to 19th, follow it 5 minutes until you pass the HEB; just next to Dairy Queen is “Taqueria Mexicana” or some such name. Fantastic Tortilla Soup & often margarita specials.
There’s also a Torchy’s Tacos, which is great, on 5th Street near Baylor.
Manny’s on the River: New, clean place on the Brazos for good quality Tex-Mex. Go watch the sunset! On Martin Luther King Drive, about 2 minutes from our house.
Two fun local bars/pubs: Barnett’s, downtown, and the Dancing Bear, near Baylor.
Good lunch place/coffee shop: Lula Jane's, on Elm (across the river in East Waco) and Dichotomy, downtown serves coffee AND cocktails. Thus the name.
Just further down from Lula Jane’s is Tony De Maria’s—great, authentic BBQ. But go early, as they sell out fast—usually by noon.
Baylor campus coffee shop: Common Grounds.
Really neat place out on Gholson Road, Homestead Heritage. Check it out on the web for more details; they make cheese, pottery, furniture, etc. and have a wonderful restaurant. They also offer HORSEBACK RIDING, as one of our guests found out!
The Waco Farmer’s Market is downtown on Saturdays from 9-1. Lots of fun stuff there.
