The stately two-story home was built in 1939 for a local businessman Mays Osborne and his family. In 1966 the family gifted their spacious home to Wayland Baptist University to serve as the private residence of their presidents. Over the years, its historical integrity and charm have been maintained to perfection. Generations of local residents have admired the beautiful home referring to it as The Presidents House. If you are looking for a private peaceful retreat or the opportunity to meet and mingle with other guests, the President’s House is sure to meet all your expectations.
Breakfast is served in the dining room, or weather permitting you might choose to have it on the patio. Breakfasts change daily and include fresh fruit, homemade muffins or breads, and a main course featuring an egg entrée, a breakfast meat such as bacon, sausage, or ham. French toast or pancakes are also a possible treat or the country boy in you might have a craving for biscuits and gravy. Whatever the case you won’t be disappointed. Our guests enjoy lively, stimulating conversation and making new friends around the breakfast table.
