About this home

This is the perfect location for a family retreat (fur baby too), or a gathering location for a reunion complete with a RV parking setup.


The gorgeous view up on a hill overlooking a green river valley is enough all by itself, but there is also a cozy but roomy 3 bedroom cottage style home with a large deck, which usually has a cool breeze up on this hill. Perfect spot for morning coffee or for enjoying a drink in the evening with spectacular sunsets.



The deck in the back runs the entire length of the house complete with a propane grill. A well lit party area, with fire pit wood provided, allows for an enjoyable time under the stars while roasting some dogs over the flames and of course, you gotta

have s'mores.



The sock tank pool (8' across and 2' deep) not only adds country charm but a great place to cool off on a hot Texas summer day.



There is also a projection system to watch movies, etc. outside on a large screen. Outside games such as Jenga and bean bag toss (AKA: cornhole)



The 'party area' is complete with party lights to give a festive feel at night while viewing a movie outside.



If you need more sleeping facilities than can be provided in a 3 BR home, there is a RV space with hookups that is also available. If you are wanting to host a group for an outside gathering, let us know and we can provide tables, chairs, serving/warming trays, etc.



This 3 acre private setting feels like you're in the country on a quiet street, but you are right off hi-way 6 for a convenient straight shot to Waco, Silos and many things Magnolia



Very safe, quiet neighborhood of lovely homes. Completely fenced and secure.

Gate is keypad entry as well as entry to home. A lot of room for your children and dog to run outside.



We provide a coffee bar with a variety of coffees and teas to start your day, and bottled water with snacks upon arrival. All areas of the house are yours to use, including a fully stocked Laundry Room.



When you are not mesmerized by the views and want to watch some TV, there are two TV's- one in living room and the other in the Master. Both are connected to Fire Recast providing full range of local over the air channels and equipped with 'Firestick" allowing you to watch your Netflix, Prime, Hulu, subscriptions, etc. Want to watch a movie outside on the "Big Screen", you can do that too.



The "Old Mill", namesake of this town, is Chip and Jo's latest fixer-upper renovation in progress for a B&B. You can drive by to see the work being done. The Old Mill and The Saw Mill, the fireplace mantel factory featured on Fixer Upper, are both located here in Valley Mills (1 mile away). And Magnolia Farms, the home of Chip and Joanna, is just 8 miles down Hwy 6. JDH Iron Designs where Jimmy Don creates his metal works featured in many of the Fixer-Upper shows is 6 miles the west



Clifton, known as the Norwegian Capitol of Texas, is only 11 miles north.



Like wine? The award winning Valley Mills vineyard and winery is just 1.4 miles and the Red Caboose winery is only 10 miles in Clifton.



And of course, Waco is just a quick 17 miles away.

    Great House, Ton of Amenities, Gorgeous Views

    Our family of 4 thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this property and only wish we could’ve booked for longer. My son and I played so many rounds of cornhole in the backyard with the provided boards I lost count, and my daughter was thrilled to watch one of her favorite films, Moana, outside on the projector screen underneath the stars. I also never knew our Goldendoodle was a country dog until she relished the wide-open, entirely fenced in spaces and didn’t want to lever leave. And the view off of the back porch really can’t be done justice in pictures. We made s’mores almost every night at the fire pit and would definitely book here again and recommend it to all of our friends. Lastly, I’ll just say that homeowner Bob was super responsive, and provides a very comprehensive breakdown of not only his home’s amenities but what the surrounding areas have to offer as well.

    BEST HOSTS & HOME AWAY EVER!

    This was by far our BEST Home Away stay, BAR NONE! Teresa and Bob's home is just that, HOME! They're attention to detail concerning your stay, far superceded any other I've ever experienced! We came down for my wife's birthday, and they had the home beautifully decorated to commemorate that, complete with Birthday Cupcakes! The home is well appointed, comfortable and SPOTLESS! All the amenities that you can think of ARE HERE! But what you can't see in a written review is the Spirit of Love and Care that flows throughout this place, and makes you feel so AT HOME! Teresa and Bob were quick to respond in communication, from the initial contact, to the reservation, to the check in, to CHECKING ON throughout our stay (With genuine concern), to the check out! (Which we didn't want to do) LOL Now on to the grounds! This really can't be appreciated without being seen! The covered wrap around back porch encompasses a picturesque view that can't be captured in words! There is seating everywhere, games, and a movie screen, so whatever your pleasure, IT'S HERE! I spent one morning in the hammock, and saw deer pass by! Peace and Serenity is found at this place! Thank you again Teresa and Bob for sharing (and the caring of) your home with us! We WILL BE BACK SOON! LOL If you get a chance to stay here, DO IT! It will provide you with a lifetime memory, not soon forgotten!

    Absolutely Delightful!

    The host was absolutely delightful to work with and the house is beautiful, absolutely perfect! Perfect patio to sit and have a glass of wine, drink your coffee in the morning, and we even got to watch a storm come in! We will absolutely stay here again!

    Family fun in Valley Mills

    Thanks so much to Bob and Teresa for making their VRBO home so welcoming and comfortable! My sisters and I enjoyed the spacious house, the spectacular yard and view, and the fun and helpful communications with Bob and Teresa. Our visit to The Silos in Waco was special! We are all hoping for another time to have family fun in Valley Mills! Miriam

    Amazing property

    Beautiful home with an amazing view. The house and yard are decorated very nicely. We enjoyed the peaceful evenings. You never have to leave the property. They have a neat pool, games, outside theater and a hammock to relax in. The back porch overlooks a beautiful valley. The hosts were wonderful as well. They checked in to make sure we had everything we needed. We will definitely go again. I highly recommend this property.
