Enjoy the privacy of your own two-bedroom, one bath, newly remodeled, country cottage nestled in the trees on a working cattle ranch. The house has central heat and air, ceiling fans in every room, full kitchen, large living area, TV/VCR and two fireplaces. Country Charm is located fifteen minutes north of Waco (Baylor is only 15 minutes away), five minutes south of West and 20 minutes south of Hillsboro, and only one mile off I-35. Plan your romantic get away in this lovely country setting or take in everything Waco has to offer, savor the Czech food and shopping in West, or shop till you drop in Hillsboro for antiques or at the outlet mall. If shopping is not your thing then relax on the back porch, read, bird watch, or just enjoy the serene view down to the creek and the pond. During fire friendly times of the year (if there is not a burn ban) you can build a fire in the outside pit, snuggle up to the fire, drink hot chocolate and sing camp songs! There is something for everyone.
