We had a wonderful time at this beautiful historic home. This B&B exuded Texas charm. From the perfect decor to the thoughtful cupcakes and coffee bar, it was all more than we could hope for. The breakfast was first class, and the owner made us all feel welcomed. I look forward to a return trip!

We thoroughly enjoy our stay at the Cotton Palace. Our bedroom was beautiful with a very comfortable bed, and the bathroom has a jetted tub and shower. We were able to enjoy just about every beautiful room in the house. Not to mention breakfast both mornings was delicious, entertaining and served by Dutch. (92 year old former baseball coach at...

Three sisters and a friend enjoyed a delightful stay at The Cotton Palace for three nights. Vicki and Jennifer were friendly and helpful, and Jennifer prepared delicious breakfasts. May's Attic was a beautiful, comfy "suite." An unexpected treasure was Dutch, our "server" - a Baylor legend full of stories, wisdom, and wit! You do not want to miss this experience... More

We have found our new home away from home! Vicki greeted us upon our arrival and showed us to our room. She gave us good advice as to what to do and where to eat while in Waco. The pictures of the rooms do not do them justice. We stayed in Lacey Ann's suite. The room was very comfortable and... More

The B & B was beautiful and charmingly decorated. We stayed here on a mother-daughter girls trip...it was fabulous! The rooms were beautiful, clean and spacious. The cupcakes were an extra special treat! Vickie prepared a scrumptious breakfast and Dutch was delightful! We can't wait to return! Janet Brown

The Cotton Palace was a great way to spend a long Memorial Day weekend. The accommodations were more than wonderful! Spacious rooms, comfy beds, luxurious linens. Everything we needed. Refreshments were always available to us, 24/7. The whole house was just immaculate. The owner, Vickie, was very personable, but not intrusive. She was a gold mine of information about the... More

Our girls trip took us to Waco this year and we stayed at the Cotton Palace. It was absolutely amazing. The house is beautiful and immaculate! Vicki and her "staff" were so helpful. I say staff. Actually her daughter, Jennifer, cooks the most wonderful breakfasts you can imagine. (Thanks so much for those extra five pounds!!) And then there is... More

Perfect place to stay! Girls trip (4), and it was a wonderful experience! Vickie is a wonderful host, and provides everything we could possibly need. She, Jennifer and Dutch made us feel special and very welcome. Jennifer is a fabulous chef; the food was great! Dutch is a delightful gentleman ( precious sense of humor) and a walking history book!... More

Everything about this place is wonderful. Many little touches to make you feel at home. Beautiful home and excellent breakfast. The hostess offers plenty of complimentary water, tea, coffee, and cupcakes! I could spend a vacation just in this house! They provide plenty of reading materials and movies to watch. Hoping to come here many, many more times!

My husband and I were traveling to Texas for the first time and wanted to stay at a B&B, since neither of us ever had. Choosing The Cotton Palace was the best decision I have ever made. We stayed in Savannah's room which was decorated beautifully with some vintage touches and Southern charm. This is one of the bigger rooms... More
