  • Introduction

    Historic Waco, Texas Suspension BridgeWelcome to Central Texas from The Heart of Texas Bed & Breakfast Owners Association. These B&Bs offer a pleasant alternative to the crowded and mass produced lodgings of more heavily populated areas. Each B&B has its own unique setting and offers pleasant, restful accommodations which range from basic to exceedingly comfortable. Our members offer a variety of amenities to make your stay memorable, whether your tastes are Victorian, contemporary, classic or country.

    By their very nature, B&Bs are as different as people, each with its own flavor, personality, and--best of all--its own host(s), and each and every one a special person. Our goal is to provide our guests with a total change of atmosphere from the usual environment, and our primary product is peace and quiet at an affordable price. The B&Bs in our organization vary in nature from lovely inns in town to quiet suburban B&Bs to peaceful B&Bs out in the country. For reservations or specific information, call the inn of your choice directly.

    Welcome to Waco - the home of Texas hospitality! Located on I-35 between Dallas and Austin, Waco is famous for its taste of Texas history and hospitality. Waco's 18 museums and attractions offer a unique, relaxing getaway from big city hustle and bustle. Enjoy the revitalized downtown and restored warehouse district with restaurants, clubs, and specialty shops, as well as the scenic River Walk along the Brazos River.
