“The Helm is TRULY a wonderful RELAXING place to stay when visiting the Waco area! If you are traveling to this area, you won't be disappointed if you stay here! It's perfect if you want a place out in nature or want to experience a tiny home, and yet just a short drive to be right in downtown. Kenneth and Amanda have thought of everything to make the place accommodating - earning their 5 star rating! The only thing we regret is that our trip wasn't longer - we are already wanting to go back! Some may think the only thing in Waco is the university, but that's not true. There are quite a few things to see - and some wonderful restaurants. With all that can be done on a trip, however, accommodations can make it memorable or miserable. A stay at The Helm makes your trip a memory you enjoy looking back on! Wonderful, wonderful place! Thanks for everything, Kenneth and Amanda!!”
The German Schmear Cottage is tucked away on a quiet street in the Mountainview area. It is centrally located (HEB, Target, and Starbucks are right down the road) and only 10-15 minutes from downtown, the Silos, and Baylor. Once a detached garage, this 400 square foot space is now a cozy, modern living space and is on the property of the main German Schmear (fixer upper) house, which is also a vacation rental. See pictures for more detailed information about the tiny house.
“We wanted a few days away from the craziness of our schedules so we decided to book with Jess and Sara for a few nights of writing and relaxation. The space was such a cute cottage, very modern and fun. Loved the backyard for wine and reading. The cookies were AMAZING. Also, their communication was spot on when we had some wifi issues. Thanks for having us!”

“Very tidy and lovely AirBnb cottage, equipped with everything you need. A good bed and nice bathroom and cold a/c. When we first stumbled upon this cottage on AirBnB, it seemed almost too good to be true. There must be a catch! But everything was as perfect as it seemed online. Location is close to everything Magnolia and other hot spots in Waco. Autumne had excellent restaurant recommendations that didn’t disappoint..she was correct on the limit of margaritas! Katie’s frozen custard was outstanding (another recommendation). .She went way beyond to make our stay comfortable and memorable. If we find ourselves back in Waco we will most definitely stay again.”
