“Experience could have been better”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 October 2012

Innkeeper Dan was very nice and the actual house was beautiful. Their dog was very sweet.

However, pictures do not show but use window units to cool bedrooms. Did not appear that during my visit main house and halls were cooled so unsure if actually had central air. Was very warm. It is located in a really bad neighborhood. Picked up dinner and returned before dark as concerned for safety.

Emerald room was in the front corner of the house and faced the traffic light/intersection. Street noise was awful. Could hear music from cars and car acceleration over window a/c unit, tv and ear plugs. Was to stay 3 nights but made other arrangements for nights 2 and 3.

Room Tip: Maybe other rooms would have had less noise problem. I stayed in the Emerald room.

It was a short stay for us, but we know we will come back when we have more time. The home is just beautiful. Our suite was so roomy and comfortable. The breakfast was delicious! Dan and Vivian are such wonderful innkeepers. They really enjoy what they are doing. There is a wonderful park just down the street with wonderful shaded cement paths to walk. I am sure we will bring our bicycles next time to ride the area. Make sure you plan to stay more than one day for your Great Escape, so you can enjoy all there is to see and do in Waco.

We loved it, the proprietors were open and friendly and we enjoyed our stay immensely. The home is beautiful. We were upgraded into the suite because no one else had booked for the weekend we were there, which made us feel very special. However the other room was very nice as well. We felt right at home and where very comfortable. The breakfast was super nice and tasty, and we were given a small treat box to take with us, which was yummy too! Would definitely stay there again.

Thank you to Dan and Viviann Capps for a great stay in Waco. My 20 year old daughter and I stayed for two nights while looking for an apartment for her, among other things. The accommodations were delightful...from the furnishings to the 3 course breakfast that was a true treat! We enjoyed talking to the Capps. They were so helpful with stories and history of the area, along with tips that helped this Mom feel more at ease, getting ready to see her daughter move away. What else to say but....it was comfortable, accessible, relaxing, yummy....I will be back with my husband when we come visit our daughter!

Beautiful B&B. Very comfortable bed, great upstairs sitting area, very attentive innkeepers. Excellent breakfast. Wonderful experience. Great way to spend my birthday...even got a little birthday cake as a special surprise!

Room Tip: We stayed in the suite, but both rooms were beautiful.
