My wife and I were on last night of a long road trip. We chose to stay at Spencer House because we wanted a spacious room, nice atmosphere, good location, and interactive hospitality. We found just what we were looking for and more. Vivian and Dan go all out to take care of their guests. Water, coffee, tea provided. TV,... More

We just spent two nights at this wonderful home. Dan & Vivian truly make you feel like one of their friends. They are very knowledgeable about the area too! The home was gorgeous and our room was spectacular. I like a B&B with great food, and this one met all expectations. They go out of their way to make sure... 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!

I selected this place based on their website, but I recommend them based on a fabulous experience. The historic arts and crafts home is an architectural gem, and the Spencer Suite is spacious. I felt that every want was anticipated and attended to. Breakfast was a gourmet feast, and the whole stay was a great value.

Very nice host/hostess and a very comfortable room. Location was near town and a very short drive to some great places to eat that Dan suggested. Some have mentioned the window unit for air conditioning and the road noise, but bring ear plugs if you think it will be a problem, it wasn't a problem for us as I sleep... More

Great place! Very inviting and comfortable from the moment you step in the home. Dan and Viviann make you feel like family. I travel quite a bit for both business and leisure and I could not give this a higher recommendation. We will be back for sure!!

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.
