Mark and Mary host one of the most delightful B&B's I have ever visited. The cottage is straight out of a story and simply makes you relax, both indoors and out. Every detail to comfort is attended to. And the breakfasts were absolutely five star. We especially enjoyed the juice and water stocked in fridge...and we hope you are lucky enough to enjoy the Friendship Bread pound cake too. We will absolutely be back and would recommend Tell Story Walk to everyone.
Words are sincerely inadequate to describe how magnificent this property is, how welcoming and accommodating Mary and Mark were and how truly wonderful our stay was at Tell Story Walk. This was far more than a “home away from home.” It was everything you wish your home was and more. Every detail has been thought out with excruciating attention to detail. The decor is beyond exquisite, and everything from the appliances to the accommodations rival anything you would find at a five star luxury hotel. The grounds surrounding the cottage are immaculate, from the majestic live oak trees, to the outdoor sitting area, to the fairy tale like lighted gazebo. This property is so perfect and our stay was beyond relaxing and exceeded all expectations. In all honesty, a small selfish part of me doesn’t want to share how lovely everything was because this place is such a huge hidden gem that I fear my next trip to Waco, it may be booked and I won’t have the opportunity to stay here. This isn’t just a place to lay your head, it is an unbelievable “experience” that you will cherish and talk about for years. Mary and Mark are consummate hosts who have managed to create the most perfect Utopia of the absolute best bed & breakfast experience you will have your entire life.
We felt like family! Mark & Mary are THE sweetest couple ever! We were greeted with a tour, drinks, champagne, scones (most delicious scones ever), fruit, yogurt, homemade whipped cream (there are no words to give it justice-so delicious) and homemade bread (also ridiculously delicious). Breakfast each day was AMAZING!! They provide so much food that we couldn't even eat it all. The cottage is superior to most, its immaculate and beautifully designed. We slept great and had plenty of room to relax. We loved the outdoor areas as much as the inside. They have thought of everything that you could possibly need. We loved staying here and enjoyed the respite from the crowds downtown. It's an easy drive down to the Silos and Magnolia Table. We are already recommending this cottage to everyone. Thanks Mark and Mary for an unforgettable trip to Waco!
Mary and Mark I can’t thank you enough for building this perfect house! My mom had an amazing time for an early Mother’s Day get away. Your kindness and attention to detail made our stay unforgettable. Thank you!
Mary and Mark were so welcoming to us and our girls. Staying at the property was a vacation in itself, along with all the great things to see in Waco.
I can’t begin to tell you how much we enjoyed our short stay here. Mark and Mary are A1 top of the line and made us feel like we were family and have always known them. The cottage is immaculate. Can’t think of one thing they didn’t have. So nice that this BandB you are in a house all to yourselves and very beautiful quiet rural setting yet just few miles out from Waco. We had awesome food and beverages awaiting us when we arrived. Mary’s scones and bread are like none other! Only complaint we didn’t have enough time there to eat it all! We hope to return someday and see the big house completed that will be for more visitors to stay in and enjoy. You will NOT be disappointed! Thanks again Mark and Mary. So enjoyed meeting and talking with you.
