The Forest Cottage is designed for couples. It works for singles who want some quiet and privacy, too. If you're a couple who loves each other, we think you're going to love it here. If you're a single and are looking for a safe, quiet place, ditto.

In addition to our normal cleaning, we make sure every surface that is normally touched (handles, table tops, etc.) has a sanitizer applied according to the manufacturer's instructions.

Please SAVE us for your future reference.

The space
The Bed
It's big. The cottage is small but the bed is as big as they get (king). And it's comfortable. And clean.

The Shower
It's probably bigger than the one you have at home and it never runs out of hot water. If you need "wake-up-therapy," you'll love it.

Privacy
It's tucked away in the forest so no one sees you even if you're out on your deck.

Coffee
Meaning coffee or tea or hot chocolate. We believe there's something about sitting down with a hot beverage that connects and we believe we need closer connections.

Food
Microwave, fridge, a two-slice toaster, a single cup coffee maker with a variety of coffees and teas, dishes and a separate sink. Feeling outdoorsy? Remember the gas grill on the deck.

Where you’ll be

Waco, Texas, United States

Magnolia and Baylor
They're about 13 minutes away with everything else downtown Waco has to offer.

The Craft Village at Homestead
For a slower pace, you're about 2 minutes away from Homestead Heritage and their number-one-rated restaurant, Cafe Homestead. They now serve breakfast Thursday through Saturday, lunches are Monday through Saturday and dinners on Thursday, Friday and Saturday evenings. Don't just eat though. There is a lot to see and do so allow some time to walk around.

Donna and I have been happily married for over 48 years and it seems like it just keeps getting better and better. She's a homemaker and my day job is as a graphic designer and web developer—semi-retired. We have three grown kids that all live with their spouses and kids within a couple of miles.

We've been in the vacation rental business for a few years now and we find that our guests are the best part of owning a BNB. It's a supplement to our retirement but the real pay from owning these vacation rentals is reading your comments and feedback in the Guestbook. The guests we have had have all been absolutely wonderful.

We had another company managing the property until recently but decided to take it back because we felt distanced from everything except washing sheets and towels. So, as mentioned elsewhere, we will protect your privacy but we want to at least meet you--even if it is just to say, "You're Welcome Here."

During your stay

We would LOVE to meet you, but you need to initiate the meeting. We realize you probably didn't come here to meet us--even though we're really nice.

While you are here, you probably won't see us, unless we happen to cross paths in the parking area, or if you need something we can help with. You'll have my cell number when you get here. Please use it if you need anything.
