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.
Going to 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 a deck and forest.
Bring some steaks or chicken and sides if you like to grill out. Your deck is private and is lit until 9:30 each night. Or, let us know and we can turn off the landscape lights in trade for some candles.
Inside, the lights are on dimmers so you can turn it up and read or, turn them down or off for a more subdued atmosphere. Your choice.
Your cottage comes with an iPod with just about every genre of music you can think of through an app called Pandora. So, whatever your mood, enhance it with the music of your choice.
You will be close to Magnolia and Baylor (about 13 minutes) and everything else downtown Waco has to offer. 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 Monday through Saturday. Don't just eat though. There is a lot to see and do so allow some time to walk around. Their newest shop is the Basket shop where you can see beautiful baskets or sign up to make one yourself.
It's actually what I would call a "kitchenette." You have a microwave, a two-slice toaster, a single cup coffee maker with a variety of coffees and teas, dishes and a separate sink. If you really want to cook, remember the gas grill on the deck.

The photos attempt to show you the house and the deck. We have some chickens in movable cages (called "chicken tractors") located in between the rows of blackberries.
Atención a los huéspedes
We hope we can meet you when you get here so we can greet you and answer any questions you might have. We mean for you to have fresh pastries every morning but they will be in your refrigerator so you can get up and eat when you want. You're on YOUR schedule here. (Except checkout time. If we have someone coming in the day you are leaving, it takes all the time we have to get things pristine again. Hope you understand.)
Except for when you arrive, 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.
Otros aspectos destacables
Your water heater is a tankless (never-ending) style so, if you're the type who likes to take (l o n g) showers, you will be in Heaven.
We have WiFi that varies from blazing fast to not so great. I've been told we don't have control of that.
There is no TV.
- We love children and they are welcome as long as you understand there is one kingsize bed and the deck's rail will not prevent a small child from crawling through and falling.

Donna and I have been happily married for over 45 years and it seems like it just keeps getting better and better. She's a homemaker and my day job is as a web designer. We have three grown kids that all live within a couple of miles.
We've just started in the vacation rental business and it keeps both of us hoping to get more landscaping done now that we've finished the cottages. 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."
