We had an amazing time staying at the Cotton Palace in Waco Tx. Two moms and two senior daughters on a spring break road trip from Houston and our first stop was Waco to see the Chip and Joanna's Magnolia Market. Vicki, the hostess, was so warm, and inviting and immediately made us feel like treasured guests. The B&B is...

From the moment my girlfriends and I drove up it was a wonderful experience. The Cotton Palace is just that...a palace!

My sister, mom, and I were visiting Waco and my sister and I surprised my mom with a stay in this beautiful place. We loved Dutch and Vicki so much. Can't wait to come back! We stayed in Matt's Attic, perfect little spot for three ladies. Food was yummy!!

We were so grateful to Vickie for being so friendly and immediately felt at home as she greeted us at the door. The breakfast was first class. Arens Room was spacious and classic.

Our stay was amazing!! Vickie and her daughter do a wonderful job of making everyone feel right at home!

My daughter and I stayed at the Cotton Palace two years ago when we were visiting Baylor.

God surely directed our steps this weekend, as my daughter and I took our first college road trip to visit Baylor. Words cannot adequately express our heartfelt gratitude for the kindness, care, and love that we received while staying at The Cotton Palace. Make no mistake... this is not your typical B & B. Vicki, Jennifer and Dutch welcomed us...
