The Lighthouse Bed and Breakfast
1894 Queen Anne Victorian and two other houses with 16 antique-filled rooms, private baths, and modern amenities. Midway between Dallas-Fort Worth and Austin, the hospitality and atmosphere will remind you of "going home to Grandma's".
The city limits of Waco and McGregor now overlap and all of the museums and attractions in Waco are just minutes away, such as the Texas Ranger Hall of Fame, The Texas Sports Hall of Fame, The Dr Pepper Museum, The Cameron Park and Zoo, Baylor University, and the Heritage Homestead, to name just a few. Crawford, home of President George W. Bush, is just 8 miles away. Numerous golf courses are within a 10-30 minute drive, with the nearest being only 8 miles away. Mother Neff State Park is just south of town, while Lake Waco, Lake Belton, and Lake Whitney are also nearby.
The Lighthouse has rooms that are decorated in turn-of-the-century antiques and furnishings, many of which were handed down from generations of the owners' families. The front porch wraps around the east and south sides of the house where you can spend time in the swings or rocking chairs and a gazebo is also located in the front yard. The newest addition is a Honeymoon Cottage.
