About the property

Comfortable guest house in the historic district, two blocks from Main Street.

Sweet Tea BnB is a classic 1930's cottage located in the historic district of Fredericksburg just two blocks from Marktplatz and Main Street's plentiful shopping and dining locales. It is tastefully decorated and furnished with your comfort in mind. The 2 bedroom, 2 bath home is restored in soft greys, blues and white, and is perfect for families or friends traveling together, ladies' groups or golf getaways! The king bed and day bed in the master bedroom, queen bed in 2nd bedroom, and a queen sleeper offer sleeping accommodations for up to 7. Spacious living and dining rooms along with a fully equipped kitchen ensure you will experience all of the comforts of home while in the peaceful setting of Fredericksburg, Texas! Spend your mornings drinking coffee on the large covered back deck and your evenings enjoying some adult beverages by the fire pit in the backyard. There is ample space for parking and a double carport out back. Sweet Tea BnB offers nothing less than what we'd expect in our own home.

About Scott McConkey and Merry Davis

We live in west Houston, as close to the hill country as possible. We are veterans of BnB travel and hosting; we love to travel, always choosing a BnB over a hotel because we prefer to stay where we can still feel "at home". Our children are grown and we have a few four-legged kids at home with us. We are both very active and like to run, swim, cycle and strength train. When we relax, Fredericksburg is our destination of choice!

Why Scott McConkey and Merry Davis chose Fredericksburg

We love this home because it has that "bed and breakfast charm" and the hill-country feel that we love so much. It has been decorated and furnished for comfort and to allow for groups of friends or families to spend time together. The proximity to Main Street and all of the attractions of Fredericksburg makes our home a great place to stay when you want to be close to everything.

What makes this house unique

Location! Full kitchen! Two full baths!!! Sleeping accommodations for up to 7! Large backyard with covered deck and terrific fire pit/seating in the back. Wrap around front porch to sit and watch the world go by.

A+ for Sweet Tea

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Sweet Tea. The location was great. The house was quaint and the décor was charmingly farmhouse. The private back deck was a prefect place to drink coffee and listen to the doves coo. Hope to stay again and would recommend a stay at Sweet Tea to friends and family. Thanks for offering us such a lovely place to stay.

Relaxing and Comfortable!

  • 5 of 5

The house is darling! We loved all the décor and all the attention to detail. Very comfortable beds and nice bedding! There is even a mattress topper for the pull out couch! We mostly loved sitting on the back porch with our coffee in the mornings and wine in the evenings. Very relaxing atmosphere. I would definitely stay here again!

Charming house

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at the Sweet Tea. It was in a good location and was easy to find. The house was very clean and had all the extra touches including soap, shampoo, lotion, etc. The hosts also included clear instructions and tips on places to eat. The beds were comfortable and had nice sheets and towels. The hosts were very easy to communicate with, responded promptly and were pleasant. One suggestion would be to have a full length mirror in at least one bedroom. Also, I am not sure why it is called a bed and breakfast because there is no breakfast. I would definitely recommend this to anyone!

What a beautiful place to spend a few days. The house is wonderful. Comfortable beds, a well-equipped kitchen, a gas fireplace, and a fabulous private back deck on a quiet street close enough to walk to downtown. There are nice bath products and robes too. The house is clean and beautifully decorated. You will not be disappointed. Highly recommend!
