“Wonderful and memorable girls' weekend”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 5, 2013

My Mom, sister and I had such a fun time in waxahachie this past weekend! We stayed in the Retreat at the Chaska house and enjoyed the eclectic island/travel decor in the suite. We relaxed and thoroughly took advantage of the boutiques, antique shops, and Getzendaner park while visiting. We also dined at the best restaurants, as recommended by Linda and Louis, and even visited a wonderful church service right around the corner from the B&B! This 100 year-old home is absolutely gorgeous. Full of all the character you would expect from a turn of the century Victorian, yet boasting all the luxurious amenities of a modern hotel, this was one of the top B&B experiences we have had. The breakfasts were delectable and the conversation delightful. I fully recommend the Chaska House for your getaway!!

We stayed here for an all girls, 40th birthday celebration. The home is beautiful and spacious. The upstairs bedrooms were well furnished and big enough for all 7 of us to sit and visit. The beds were comfortable and the bathrooms were huge and sparkling clean. We enjoyed fresh baked cookies when we returned from dinner, a delicious breakfast and visiting with our gracious hosts.

Room Tip: Be warned the Roosevelt room has a skylight over the bed. The Shakepeare and Twain rooms were just...

Linda and Louis are as nice as could be. The house and rooms and grounds are beautiful even though you are only minutes from DFW. Breakfast was delicious and they really have all the little details perfect to make for a stress-free stay. We hope to go back again soon!

A friend and I stayed three nights. We were in the Retreat Hemingway One. It was great! The breakfast we had every morning where excellent! Great service and clean and neat! Would stay there again. We meet several very nice folks staying there over Memorial Day weekend.

We loved our stay last weekend. Louis & Linda are great hosts, and a joy to visit with. Chaka House is beautifully restored and our room (Teddy Roosevelt) was spacious, comfortable, and very well done. Great sheets! Highly recommend...

We spent two nights here during the Ennis Bluebonnet Trails festival. The B&B was a lovely respite from the busy pace of the Dallas suburb we call home. The Gatsby suite was lovely and had everything we could have wanted. Breakfasts were delicious and filling.

Wanted to find a nice bed and breakfast escape away from the overcrowded Dallas metroplex, Waxahachie is about as close as I could find. This small friendly town is full of Victorian style homes, many homes including Chaska House have been wonderfully renovated. Chaska House has been superbly updated, each room has a character all its own, we received a personal tour given by Linda. The owners Louis and Linda make you feel right at home, for the three days we stayed the breakfast cooked by Louis was outstanding.

Room Tip: We stayed in the Hemingway retreat which is outside the main house, it was like renting a one bedroo...
