The Forest Cottage is a little cottage that thinks it's big enough for full-sized furniture, a huge shower and a king-sized bed. This is the consummate couples retreat. Embedded in a cedar forest, this tiny house offers your destination for a second honeymoon or for a time to kick back and relax.

Magnolia? You'll come home tired. This cottage is ready to pamper you and help you get ready for another day at it tomorrow. Your view is out an 8' window overlooking the forest. 2-night minimum.

You will love your stay at Doug and Donna’s cottage. The cottage is so cute and clean. They are thoughtful and kind and add extra little touches to your stay to make you feel special and welcome. I would recommend them to anyone traveling in that area.

Doug and Donna provided first rate accommodations. Their cottage was comfortable and beautifully decorated, their hospitality exceptional and outdoor surroundings serene. Beyond five stars! We highly recommend.

Response from Doug:
Roger, it was so nice meeting you two and interesting to hear about your career in the heart of DC. You're the first to mention that Waco was larger than you expected. I know it's growing, but, obviously, we're getting bigger than I realized. I hope your trip back north was good and uneventful. If you should ever return, we'd love to hear from you!

Kali, you guys were wonderful. I wish I could have met you but Donna said she intersected with you three and said you all were having a good time. Thanks for mentioning that you felt safe. I know that's a concern these days and we're glad you did. It helps to be out on some land and away from a lot of people. If you find yourself in Waco again, we'd love to have you stay here any time.

This little hide-out is WONDERFUL. I only wish we lived closer to access it more often. Doug and Donna were fantastic hosts. Their attentiveness and hospitality is unmatched. The ambiance they have create makes a magical stay. Blackberry Cottage is charming in every way. …

What a family! And we got to meet a bunch of you guys--what a treat! We were able to meet up with Michael to give him the items Pat left behind, so, hopefully, everything ended up in its right place. I know it's a slim chance you will ever make such a long trip now that your youngest has graduated from Baylor, but, if you ever did, we would love to host you and, frankly get to spend more time with you and your incredible family.

The Forest Cottage was such a lovely place to stay! I highly recommend it. Doug and Donna were so very kind, the place was pristine, and for a “tiny house” type space, somehow all the comforts of home were conveniently included. They thought of everything! It’s a quiet and tranqu…

Thanks, Jenni. You and Aaron were a joy to get to know. We pray the best for you two and hope you'll come again sometime. You're one of those who came as guests and left as friends.
