WOW! Picture Perfect. Pure Delight. Loved It. Vickie was wonderful as owner and hostess. Breakfast was not only a gourmet meal but we were entertained by "Dutch" who was original owner and our distinguished waiter. Hilarious and great historian on all Waco If you go to Waco, stay at the Cotton Palace. You will not be disappointed.

This was our first stay at the Cotton Palace, but it won't be our last. It is a great B&B, one of the best we've ever been to, the rooms are beautifully appointed and comfortable. Service is excellent and the real highlight was our time with "Dutch", he is the former owner but he still shows up in the morning... More

The home has recently been freshened up with maintenance and beautiful furniture. Our room was beautiful and had excellent sheets. Cupcakes and coffee are available for your convenience.

What a wonderful place to stay. It is our new home in Waco! We loved the restored home, so historic, but most of all we loved the hosts. Vickie was so kind and generous, and Durch and Betty were a delight to meet and get to know. They provided wonderful guidance on where to go and what to see, and... More

The owner, Vickie was such a kind and welcoming lady. She woke up so early to make us the most wonderful scones to take with us to orientation and the morning we... More

Both Vicki and Dutch made the Cotton Palace experience above the normal B&B hospitality. Our stay started with gluten-free cookies and a long chat about the new owner's move serve travelers. The décor and amenities were lush and our room was quiet. Gluten-free breakfast included a fantastic hash-brown crust quiche, fruit, juices, bacon and fabulous coffee. Additional pampering included gluten-free... More
