Waco bed and breakfast description

Our spacious 2400 sq. foot home is nestled in a grove of elm, oak and native pecan trees. Relax on our back porch and look out over a small pond with ducks and pastures with cows grazing. Although we're located less than 15 minutes from Baylor, Homestead Heritage, The Dr. Pepper Museum, Waco Mammoth Sight, Cameron Park Zoo, Waco Airport and many other places, our 30 acre farm gives a peaceful, rural atmosphere. Between the porch and the pond we have a small rock lined pit for roasting hot dogs (weather permitting). We also have two rope swings for the kids.
We purchased this home in the Spring of 2006 and moved it onto our property. (We live walking distance from the house) We completely remodeled the entire house over the next 2 years and added extra rooms. We opened up in the Fall of '08. Each bedroom has a queen size bed and we provide soft, all cotton linens. All the bedrooms have lamps on both sides of the bed. The Suite, Room A and Room B have ample floor space if you want extra space for children to sleep.
The bathroom in the Suite has a large, fully tiled shower, a toilet and sink with lots of counter area. Rooms B and C share a bathroom which include a bathtub and tiled shower, a toilet and sink. The bathroom in Room A has a small fully tiled shower a toilet and small sink area. All of the bathrooms are well stocked with thick cotton bath towels, hand towels and wash cloths. We also provide shampoo and soap.
Enjoy the spacious living room area which includes comfortable seating for 6 plus dining area for 10. There's also a small dining table in the Suite which can seat 3 more people. The kitchen is stocked with coffee, various teas, hot chocolate, sugar and creamers. The kitchen is equipped with a full size refrigerator/freezer, a smooth top electric range, double electric ovens, a counter top convection oven, a pop toaster, coffee pot and microwave. We have dishes for twelve + pots and pans and various cooking utensils. The Suite area also has a small kitchenette-sink, coffee pot, microwave, mini refrigerator and pop toaster. We also have a full size washer and dryer with detergent and softener provided + 2 irons and ironing boards. We do have High Speed Internet (WiFi), but we DO NOT HAVE TELEVISIONS.
