The Haley House: A peaceful place in the city of the city
Welcome to our Home
. .while watching the birds and wildlife at play.
Sit on our Pew and Drink Your Morning Libation...
Looking from the dining room into the living area
Granite edged fireplace with a hand hewn mantel graces the living room
Antique Chairs chairs from the 17th Centruy give the room an elegant feeling.
The newly recovered vintage sofa & chair are beautiul to look at and comfortable to sit on
Looking into the dining room, a restored 50's corner cabinet brings back the memory of a simple time
The dining room is well appointed  with vintage & carnival glass
and the dining room table is glass with scalloped edging.
Looking  over the bar into the kitchen.
The custom cabinets and granite counters and new appliances. . .
.....makes the kitchen lovely, yet functional
Utensils from pizza cutters to serving spoon are available
A renovated 50\\\'s bath with new fixtures and cabinets yet a feel of nostalgia
The 'guest bedroom' with a country style.
Furnished with 2 daybeds with trundles that can convert to a King Bed.  TV/DVD  sits on desk
Quilted bed coverings.& Remington art adds to the country look.
French Doors, from the 50\'s are the entrances to bedrooms. Coverd in voile and satin panels.
The master bedroom, has a queen bed with 700 to 1200 thread count linens.
The large wooden headboard was custom made for this home and this room.
A full length mirror hangs on the entrance wall to the private master bath
Luxurious Towels make you feel pampered
The wash basin is tempered glass with a pump style faucet, giving it the old world effect
...as well as sitting area making you feel like royality
The back patio is coverd and contains
a sitting area and gas grill
Though in the middle of Waco, a creek runs past the back gate, giving the feel of country.
Gardens surround the home
The Side Garden Close Up.
The back yard has
well appointed flower gardens
as does the front yard.
Maybe our gardenia will be blooming when you are with us,
or the succulents with their unique designs.
Even in the middle of winter our home is snug ans warm with a gas fireplace to make it cozy
The pecan tree has it\'s own type of beauty, even without leaves
and the streets can look like a wonderland
Even the cardinals visit and sit in our tree out front.
Winter Beauty

“Charmingly comfortable home.”
Reviewed 22 October 2015 for a stay in October 2015

My Sister and I along with a friend take a four day vacation every year in different VRBOs.
This year we chose The Haley House. We were totally comfortable in this beautifully appointed cottage. Furnishings, art on the walls as well as all amenities were on point.
Kathy and John Haley did beautiful work with the house and furnishings and their story of Haley House is quite interesting. I think Joanna Gains would like the furnishings and decor too, (We do enjoy Magnolia Mkt. and the Silos.) I would recommend this house to anyone of 4 adults or less.

So glad you enjoyed staying with us! It is certainly high praise when you compare the decor and furnishings in our our home as something that would have been approved of by Joanna Gains. It has always been our goal for our home to truly feel like "a home away from home". We know you go different places each year, but if you should return to Waco we would be honored to have you with us again.
Blessings!
Kathy & John

“All the comforts of home and close to Baylor University”
Reviewed 15 October 2015 for a stay in September 2015

My husband and parents-in-law spent the weekend at the Haley House to attend a volleyball tournament at Baylor. We really enjoyed our time there, and found the house to be very comfortable and clean. It was also conveniently located to campus as well as restaurants and shopping which we enjoyed during our stay. The beds were especially nice and the living areas gave us plenty of room to spread out.

We are so glad your stay with us added to the time you spent in Waco. We are looking forward to the next time you return to the US, having you with us again.
So glad the backyard became a great place for Lily to play and next time I know there will be another set of feet running in the yard as well. We are upgrading the back yard, so it will be even a more enjoyable place for you and your family.
Blessings!
