The owners Dan and Vivian are amazing. They served awesome three-course breakfasts in a full service way, complete with fresh, strong coffee and juice. My wife and I stayed two nights in the suite (the larger of the two rooms). We really enjoyed having the extra sitting room that is separate from the bedroom. Dan and Vivian are a treasure...

For our trip to Waco to visit the Silos and Magnolia, we chose Spencer House Bed and Breakfast from the reviews on this site. We couldn't agree more; the location was close to shopping, the suite was beautiful and spacious - larger than a NYC apartment. The three course breakfast shouldn't be missed as the food was excellent and the...

Visiting my daughter, son-in-law and granddaughter for the first time in Waco. I was scanning the hotels and stumbled into the B&B section. The Spencer House looked very appealing with it accommodations, cost and of course its "three course breakfast". We have stayed at many B&B's, this experience at the Spencer House will stay at the top of our list...

We just completed our third stay at the Spencer House and remain very impressed. The owners/hosts, Dan and Viviann Capps, are so friendly and charming - we enjoy just chatting with them. As we were their only guests that evening they generously upgraded us to their suite at no charge - much appreciated. They serve the most amazing three course...

Beautiful house, very comfy, delicious breakfast!! Stayed at the Spencer House, as second part of our Waco stay, for our son's graduation from Baylor. We had stayed in another B & B for the first few days and didn't find it as amenable. Loved the house, the breakfast and the owners. I accidently forgot a pair of earrings in our...

Nice relaxing stay at the Spencer House Bed and Breakfast. Beautiful old house. Mr. Dan and Ms Vivian were the hostesses and they were so sweet and knowledgeable of the area. The breakfast was out of this world! If I am ever in the area I would stay again.

This home is an excellent alternative to a hotel stay in Waco. I stayed in the smaller of the two rooms, and as others have said, it was more than big enough, quite a bit larger than the average hotel room. The bed was Goldilocks perfect- not too firm, not too soft, and, surprise surprise, pillows that were the same....
