Classic architecture, period antiques, old fashioned wrap-around verandas, and tree-shaded grounds.

Described by Texas Highways Magazine as "Victorian Splendor", The Chaska House celebrates the joyous revival style and attitude that flourished in turn-of-the-century Waxahachie. National Register-listed, the Chaska House (c. 1900) features an extensive collection of period antiques assembled over many years by your hosts.

Guests may enjoy the fascinating library, grand hall, formal dining room, bustling kitchen, wrap-around verandah and tree-shaded grounds. All just a short stroll to the town square with its wondrous shops, excellent restaurants and magnificent courthouse that James Michener called "a fairy tale palace - one of the finest buildings in Texas".

Guest rooms are romantic, tall and spacious with sitting areas and private baths.

These luxurious guest rooms and suites reflect the lifestyles and works of well-known authors including Samuel Clemens, F. Scott Fitzgerald, Margaret Mitchell, William Shakespeare, and Theodore Roosevelt.
