Log house in the woods
Lovely home in a very quiet setting. We walked and fished in the pond. Coffee on the front porch in the morning.

Private and Relaxing Log Cabin
This is a beautiful, serene, charming and spacious log cabin for a family of 5, located on a private property with no one around us...and with a pond view from the front porch. You can walk out to the many trails and access the river. We would recommend this place and the horse back riding with the family.

A dream home and location! The owner, Hannah was so helpful and always available. Only about 20-25 minutes away from great attractions. Homestead Heritage Village adjacent to the property...a must see! This home is the BEST location for your family pet...gorgeous shaded/tree-lined road for walking. Home is absolutely beautiful, quiet, spacious, and stocked with everything you need. You will not be disappointed!! Will stay here next time we visit Waco, TX.

Peaceful stay
The cottage was the perfect place for my stay. It was very homey and comfortable. After a busy afternoon, time out on the porch was welcomed. We didn’t even mind the rain. Easy check in/out. Great communication/response time. The whole experience was near effortless. Will definitely stay again!

Cabin by the pond.
The cabin was very clean and very nice. The pond was so pretty and sitting on the porch was very relaxing. I wish the dock on the pond was accessible but the scenery was amazing. Thank you for the lovely stay.
