Reviewed September 12, 2013

We stayed overnight on our way to Dallas. Dan provided us with information on things to do & we had a great time. We enjoyed visiting with Dan & Viviann on our return as well as @ breakfast! Lots of laughter & a sense of visiting home with friends! Their home & furnishings are beautiful & welcome you as family! Food was WONDERFUL & hosts & hostesses like the Capps are the reason why we love staying @ B &B's! Thank you for a wonderful visit!

Room Tip: All are wonderful!

The lovely Spencer House B&B in Waco is situated just a few minutes from the Baylor University campus. We spent two restful evenings with Dan and Vivian who are the most gracious hosts anyone could ever meet. They greeted us warmly and helped our future Baylor student feel welcome and ready to make her new home on campus. We rented both beautifully appointed, antique-filled rooms for our stay and found everything clean and comfortable.

Now for breakfast - Dan and Vivian prepared a fantastic three course breakfast each morning on our schedule as well as bringing coffee to our suite beforehand. There were fruit crisps, hearty quiche, and delicious custard desserts. Then to top it all off, they sent us on our way home with huge chocolate brownies and home made sugar cookies all tied up in a box with a ribbon. We could not have been happier with our accommodations!

Room Tip: The suite is full of artfully arranged antiques as is the rest of the house.

A very nice home, wonderful hosts, great stay.
We stayed in an over sized suite. Sitting room, dressing room, bathroom, and bedroom. Lots of room to spread out and relax.
Breakfast was great both days, they really spoiled us on with the tasty food. They were very accommodating to our dietary needs.
We had a key to the house so we could come and go as we pleased.
Overall we had a great stay, we will be recommending this B&B to our friends and family, and can't wait to go back.

This B&B is one of our favorites! We go back 3 or 4 times a year. Dan and Viviann are the best hostess and so friendly. We love all the historical stories Dan tells about the house and Waco. Viviann makes the best 3 course breakfast. The rooms are beautiful and all the antiques are a joy to look at during our stay. Beds are comfy, bathrooms are roomy, and the window units are great so you can control your own air to your liking. We will continue to visit this B&B as long as it is open!

We loved our stay at the Spencer House - gorgeous rooms, lovely yard and sitting areas and totally relaxing and comfortable. Dan and Viviann were lovely people and the three course breakfast was delicious. I have already made one of the recipes back at home on our return.

Room Tip: Both rooms were fantastic, you can't go wrong.

I just spent one night at Spencer House, and truly did not want to leave! The minute you are welcomed by Dan and Vivian and walk through the door, you immediately feel that you could kick off your shoes, and lounge on any piece of available furniture. The antiques in my room were very warm, homey and soothing. After eating breakfast (which was fabulous!) and visiting with Dan and Vivian, I felt like I had made new friends. This is definitely now on my list for just a weekend get-away to destress.

Our Spencer House experience was excellent. The house is beautifully furnished and our hosts, Dan and Viviann Capps (and their sweet old dog Amos), were friendly and full of interesting information about the house's history and local attractions. We stayed in the suite which was spacious with a very comfortable bed. Breakfast was three courses of delights and we were given a goodie box of sweet treats when we checked out. We are already planning our return trip.
