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!

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.

Sweet Tea - Fredericksburg's favorite guest house!
average rating of 5.0 based on 10 reviews

We spent 4 days in Fredericksburg introducing our 21 year old daughters to their first wine tastings, and could not have chosen a better place to stay!! Sweet Tea was perfect in every way. There is not a detail that was over looked. It has country charm from the furnishings to the toiletries to the pantry with coffee and tea, and fresh baked cookies on the counter. We will definitely return and recommend Sweet Tea to our friends!!!

You never really know what you're getting even with beautiful pictures and wonderful reviews. But we felt like we hit the jackpot on our mother-daughters weekend! The back porch is generous in size, comfort, and utility. We so enjoyed coffee and breakfast in the morning and wine and snacks in the afternoon. The beds were comfy and the bathrooms were well appointed. We had fun looking at all the special touches in the decor. Attention to detail was evident right down to the bathrobes and coffee mugs. The short walk to Main Street was such a bonus. Sweet Tea is perfection!

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.
