This is the very best experience I have had. Vickie was a lovely innkeeper and so warm and accommodating. She made our birthday reunion extra special. The Inn is warm and cozy. The house is gorgeous and beautifully appointed. Having Dutch serve us breakfast was a special treat! We hope to do this again and will plan to stay there...

This place is amazing. The food was even better and Dutch with his many hats. We took my sister for her birthday weekend. Had a great weekend. The house is gorgeous and the rooms were really nice. You can sit down in the leaving area and watch movies!

Beautiful home and hostess and hotesses were exceptional..The Three of us stayed in the attic where we had three beds and it was cozy and soooo comfortable. We can say enough about this place and especially Dutch who served each morning at breakfast and entertained us with wonderful stories about Waco and Baylor. He's a keeper. Can't wait to go...

Ms. Becky is a wonderful host. I recently met her at an event and while I have not stayed at the Cotton Palace I cannot say enough about her. Any stay would be well worth it based on her hospitality and sweet disposition.

This is a wonderful place to stay! The staff is always so great and the house is beautiful! I always love the decorations depending on the time of year and the courtyard is beautiful! I highly recommend this to anyone looking for a special time.

I will add my voice to the glowing reviews of this B&B. Our daughter got married and our whole family took over the place. Becky recommended a caterer and we brought food in so we could entertain family and friends the day of the wedding. The place is so comfortable and homey that I'm afraid we treated it too much...

All of The Cotton Palace staff my wife and I encountered during our stay were; out-going, friendly, helpful and knowledgable concerning all aspects of the Bed and Breakfast experience. That included; arrival/departure, room accommodations, dining and housekeeping. The reservation handling, reception upon our arrival, room, dining experience, food quality, service, staff's friendliness and graciousness, bed and breakfast ambiance and overall...

In this day and age when we go in and out of hotels and travels being so anonymous, The Cotton Palace makes a statement that there is another choice. Becky and Dutch were incredibly friendly. I met a girlfriend halfway in Waco to catch up. This wonderful home provided just the place for us. We stayed in Matt's attic which...

I made reservations at the Cotton Patch for my friend and I to meet in Waco for a time of catching up. I needed to find a gas station before I got to the closed exits caused by road construction. I was in panic mode when my phone rang. It was Becky. She knew immediately where I was and "talked"...
