The hosts Dan and Viviann were both gracious and extremely knowledgable in every way! Dan is involved both in Historical homes and the history of Waco, which has a more exciting history than I could have ever imagined! The home was clean, tastefully appointed, and the beds were very comfortable, we stayed in both rooms available, The Emerald Room was... More

The Spencer House is comfortable; the hosts, Dan and Vivian, are interesting and low-key, and the breakfast menus reflect the German heritage of much of this part of Texas. We'll stay there again when we are in Waco.

We appreciated their accommodating our crazy schedule and they exceeded our expectations in every way!

My stay at Spencer House B&B was exceptional! The home was warm and welcoming on a cold rainy night, and the hosts were gracious and accommodating. The facilities and amenities were more than adequate, and everything was super clean. The location of the B&B was convenient to evening dining options, and an easy 13-minute drive from my business meeting location.... More

Staying at Vivian and Dan's lovely home, the Spencer House, was so much more than just an overnight stay. They truly make you feel like your a part of their family and they go out of their way to make sure your stay is special. You just can't believe the elegant gourmet breakfast we were served. I'm still thinking about... More

My girlfriend & I planned a weekend trip meeting 1/2 way between our home bases of Dallas & Houston. We considered several hotel options in the Waco area but decided to try the bed & breakfast route as we thought it would be more charming then a chain hotel. Our Spencer House stay was more then just a place to... More

I had the pleasure of spending Christmas Eve at Spencer House and it was just gorgeous. The owners, Dan & Viviann are delightful hosts. The location is convenient to downtown, MCC, TSTC and Baylor. I would strongly recommend their establishment.

I have stayed in many Bed & Breakfasts, and this one is THE best one I've ever experienced. Dan & Vivian are delightful hosts! You won't find a more delicious gourmet breakfast anywhere, and it is served with such elegance. They even send you on your way with a box of homemade goodies! I have never experienced that before!

You can't go wrong with this choice of a bed and breakfast. This is Waco's treasure that everyone should experience. For selfish reasons I hope many don't find out about this B&B because I will never get the chance to stay in such an extravagant palace again. Dan and Vivian, two truly wonderful people that we have experienced in our... More

My wife and I recently stayed two nights at The Spencer House that has everything we enjoy about staying at B&Bs. It is a beautifully-restored 100-year-old home in a neighborhood of other homes in the arts and craft style of architecture. It is also decorated with furniture and other decorative elements representing this same period. We stayed in the larger... More
