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! The... More

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

We stayed here for a weekend in November. It is a majestic house with many pieces from the owner's antique collection. Off-street parking. Rooms are spacious, each with a bath with shower. There is a sitting room and a dressing room in the larger bedroom. Beds are comfortable. Hosts Dan and Vivianne could not have been nicer. They know the... More

We had a great stay! They accommodated for food allergies very well and we're so kind when we had to arrive much later than planned. Accommodations were lovely and they have a beautiful bed and breakfast. I will definitely recommend to friends and family!

Vivian and Dan were amazing hosts! We stayed in the Emerald Room and it was very charming and well priced. Vivian's cooking is to die for - 3 course meal for breakfast at a time of our choosing each morning :) Highly recommended for young adults/parents visiting Baylor. We'd definitely stay again next time we're in Waco.
