Create your own unique experience

Gathering Oaks Retreat is a place where friends and family can come together to enjoy each other's company in a relaxing, secluded setting. The property will sleep large groups up to 50 people in a variety of private and semi-private accommodations.  You could also plan a quaint getaway for yourself or your family. There are 2 indoor areas that are perfect for hosting events and 30 acres of outdoor space to create your ideal gathering under a canopy of oaks.  There is a full kitchen available in the Gathering House and 2 Bedroom Cottage as well as kitchenettes in many of our cabins and suites.  We have a pool available for our overnight guests to use as well. 

The property is available for complete rental to ensure your group has privacy.  We also welcome smaller groups that just want to utilize a portion of the place or a couple that wants to rekindle in their own private suite.  We will work with your needs to establish the best package for you. 


Use our contact page to send us your contact information and tell us a little about your vision so we can work with you on a package to suit you or book directly on our rooms page.

About the Owners:

Lacy and Brandon Hodges are native Texans that had the opportunity to move to Waco with their 2 young daughters in 2015. Brandon is a native Wacoan and Lacy is from Granbury located 90 miles to the north.  Both graduated from Texas A&M University and began their careers in the DFW area.  Upon moving back to Waco, Lacy noticed this beautiful property just outside of town and had the vision to create Gathering Oaks Retreat. Many thoughts and prayers went into the concept of Gathering Oaks and the property was purchased in December 2016.  With a little hard work, TLC and a lot of help from family, the vision started to become reality in March 2017.  As guests began to arrive, it was clear that Gathering Oaks Retreat would become just what Waco needs for locals and out of town visitors alike.  Our guests make the dream a reality and we sincerely appreciate their choice of Gathering Oaks to host some of life's milestones.  We invite you to be a guest and experience it for yourself.
