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.... More

My grandparents built this house and I lived it in for many years until we sold it in 1970. So staying here was a giant 'memory lane' experience. I was so thrilled with many aspects. I got to sleep in the room I grew up in and enjoy the green tile bathroom again. Dan and Vivian have done an amazing... More

From the beginning to the end, Dan and Vivian were the perfect hosts. The atmosphere was warm and nostalgic and the breakfasts were delicious and beautifully prepared not to mention the great conversations and stories that Dan and Vivian shared. Whenever visiting Waco, this is the place to stay!

“They only have two rooms to choose and both are wonderful, but I really enjoyed staying in the larger of the two. I liked having the living room and the separate changing room.”
