LOCATION LOCATION LOCATION! A warm welcome awaits you at the cute house with the bright door and signature chevron wall. Poppy & Rye House is a cozy retreat nestled in the heart of the Silo District... private and relaxing, yet right in the middle of Waco's biggest attractions. We've been recognized by HGTV's top designers, featured as a top Airbnb by Levi Kelly, and frequently selected for photo shoots by leading retailers.

The space
Bright, light and airy with pops of poppy red and handcrafted pieces, it's the best of the old with the luxury of the new. The interior was thoughtfully designed by Dana with original shiplap, bead board, and hardwoods that are beautifully blended with all new modern decor. Rye -- a Harp Design Co-trained craftsman -- has crafted one-of-a-kind pieces throughout the home.

We have 3 bedrooms with 3 FULL bathrooms (a rare find!). Two bedrooms have their own connected baths in "suite style" for privacy. We're located in the heart of downtown Waco, a short walk to the Silos, on the next block over. Relax with friends and family on not one, but two, of our large porches (front & back!), or enjoy the private fire pit area in the backyard.

5 Reasons You'll Love Poppy & Rye House

1. Take the short walk to Magnolia (next block over)
2. Settle in to our cozy Adirondack chairs around the fire pit in our backyard
3. Grab a delicious cup of coffee at Magnolia Press (just around the corner)
4. Listen to live music at Backyard (free tix for our guests upon request)
5. We're LOCAL. No 3rd party managers for us. You'll have direct access to the owners!

Guest access
Full access to the house, driveway and private fenced backyard (with gate).
Check yourself in with Schlage Smartlock keypad and one-touch lock as you leave each time. (No keys to keep track of!)

Other things to note
The front bedroom has two (2) twin beds with slide out trundles for four (4) total beds if needed. (Handy for kids / extra guests.) We're within earshot of the Backyard venue which has live music from leading musicians / bands on Thurs, Fri and Saturday nights. You can sit around the firepit in our backyard and enjoy your own "private concert". A plus for most! BUT, if you're the turn-in-early type, we have ear plugs and noise machines on hand to block out the music completely. Check Backyard's concert calendar to see who's playing while you're in town. And if you wanna see the concert, let us know and we'll hook you up with free tickets. Sweet!

What makes our neighborhood special? So many things! The music! The shopping! The entertainment! But most of all, the LOCATION. You're literally steps away from Waco's main attractions.

We are the Gages. We took on this little fixer upper in early 2018 and have had a blast transforming it into a place we're proud of. We're excited for Poppy & Rye House to be part of the thriving Waco community. A bit about us: Brett (dad) is a middle school teacher in North Richland Hills, TX, Dana (mom) runs a non-profit called The LV Project, and son Riley (Rye) is a Baylor grad and Harp Design Co-trained craftsman who lives in Waco. Rye handcrafted many of the pieces from the house demo wood. The "Poppy" in Poppy & Rye is our dad and grandfather... a farmer, a Dust Bowl survivor, a journalist, a college professor, a poet. Poppy's poems grace many of our walls. Ancient philosopher Rumi says, "Where there is ruin, there is hope for a treasure." and no doubt, this house is a broken-to-beauty story. Five percent (5%) of Poppy & Rye proceeds are donated to The LV Project, a non-profit dedicated to the idea that all people can LiVe and LoVe buoyantly, on water and in life. So, you're not just staying in a great spot, you're helping a lot of people, too. Our goal -- always -- is to make Poppy & Rye House a place of peace, restoration and relaxation. Thanks for checking us out. We'd love to host you. We know you'll love Waco as much as we do and we're here to make your trip a GREAT one. Rye and Dana, Owners of Poppy & Rye House
