An absolute gem in every respect. The cottage is conveniently designed, perfectly appointed, and impeccably maintained - and wheelchair accessible. The setting is on a large, beautifully maintained site with large oaks, multiple seating areas, and convenient parking. The cottage itself has seating on the front, to the side under an arbor, and by the chiminea. Bird feeders and fountains guarantee lots of feathered visitors (We saw a roadrunner in the yard). As charming as the cottage itself is, flower-filled and bright, the hospitality of the innkeepers, Mary and Mark, takes the experience to a completely different level! Upon arrival we found a well-stocked refrigerator: fruit and homemade whipped cream, juices, and yogurt. On the counter were a loaf of friendship bread, fresh scones, homemade granola, and wine chilling on ice. Breakfasts were large and varied.
This spot IS the destination. There are plenty of things to see and do in the Waco-Elm Mott area, but you'll be tempted to stay in and just luxuriate inside and out!!!!
We can't wait to try the fireplace and chiminea in cooler weather there!
Our first impression was "Wow". From that point on, it only got better! Actually, it started before we ever got there. Shortly after booking our stay, we were contacted by Mark and Mary. They asked a few simple questions to get a feel for our preferences. Based on that conversation, when we arrived, we found a welcome gift waiting for us. Mark and Mary are wonderful hosts and their only request is that you relax and enjoy yourself. They provided great food, fresh each day. While it was supposed to be for breakfast, it was enough to feed us all day. The actual accommodations are wonderful and make you feel like you are at home. Everything was clean and very well kept and the kitchen has everything you can imagine. There was absolutely nothing lacking, especially the hospitality. We will surely return there often. We recommend you do the same! You won't be disappointed.
We stayed at Tell Story Walk during our visit to Waco. The Cottage is truly gourmet as we put it to the test. Everything about the Cottage is warm and relaxing . The location was a peaceful change from the buzz of Waco. The hosts are kind and generous . We look forward to a return visit.
Cottage was so nice! Mark and Mary were do nice! The breakfast is wonderful. I will definitely be back.
Amazing! Beautiful! Peaceful! Mark and Mary are two of the most precious people you will ever meet. You will not find anyone more hospitable, the food was fabulous and the accommodations were phenomenal. We will definitely be returning to The Cottage at Tell Story Walk.
The Cottage at Tell Story is the cutest place nestled in the woods. Mary & Mark treat you like family and the food is delicious. I would stay forever if I could and I will for sure be coming again.
