 THE CHASKA HOUSE BED AND BREAKFAST

The Chaska House was built in 1900, reflecting the Revival Style and attitude that flourished in turn-of-the-century Waxahachie when “Cotton was King” and life was good. Texas Highways Magazine calls it “Victorian Splendor”. Opened as a bed & breakfast in 1993 by Louis and Linda Brown, the National Register-Listed home recently completed a meticulous year-long restoration, emerging as a fascinating combination of history, luxury, comfort and whimsical adventure—specifically designed with B&B guests in mind. The house and each of its uniquely-decorated common areas and extraordinary guest rooms (named and styled after authors) are a remarkable blend of original architecture, master craftsmanship (old and new) and imaginative interior design. Rich colors, opulent fabrics, fine art and pedigreed antiques are combined with contemporary pieces, luxurious amenities and state-of-the-art technology to create a comfortable elegance rarely found in historic lodging properties—All just a short stroll to historic Waxahachie’s town square with its wondrous shops, excellent restaurants and the magnificent courthouse that James Michener called “a fairy tale palace—one of the finest buildings in Texas”.
