Our guest's health, safety and well being are our top priority.
Freshly modern with a rustic feel, this unique 2 br cabin located on the Brazos River bank is the perfect location for that unplanned getaway. If offers remarkable views of the Brazos River as you enjoy a quiet evening on the deck grilling steaks and sipping that favorite beverage. The close proximity to Waco attractions such as The Magnolia Market and Baylor University, makes this the perfect spot for active days and restful evenings.

"The Brazos River Bend home was absolutely adorable and the gazebo was the most utilized area of our stay. This hidden gem was a great escape for three friends who have been sheltering in place since March. This was our first getaway since January and oh my was it needed. This home and the area was a great place to relax and enjoy friends. We had a minor issue of no fault of anyone and the Waco Vacation rental team and the owner Paul both responded immediately and handled the situation. We thoroughly enjoyed the home; it did not disappoint and the property itself. Perfect for a group of 4. We are already looking to see when we can come back . Thank you to everyone for such a lovely weekend getaway!" - (Sep 2020 - Airbnb)
