Awesome secluded get away

  • 5 of 5

We came to Fredericksburg to get away from Houston. We didn't come for the shops, the wine or food. We headed out to Enchanted Rock and came home and had a few beers on the porch while we watched all of the deer. It was amazing. Can't wait to come back next year.

Quaint romantic cottage

Loved the historical cottage. Lot of wildlife viewing and just the right distance from town.

Get away from it all and yet only minutes from Fredericksburg!

  • 5 of 5

Had an amazing time at this cabin. It was clean, quiet, and the owner was easy to reach to help answer questions. We came at night and it was a bit hard to find as the gps sent us past the cabin. The cabin is over one cattle guard to your right and has Christmas iceicle lights on front. Be sure to ask for a second key in advance if using the upstairs bedroom. The second upstairs bedroom can only be accessed by the outside staircase.and has a different key. The place is adorable and rich with history. We loved our stay here. You may experience up close encounters with deer and cow. Be careful where you walk! Loved our time here and hope for a future visit here. I the spa tub in the bathroom is a bonus!

So Relaxing and Quiet

  • 4 of 5

My wife and I enjoyed the cozy cottage from the past. The wildlife came up to the house. We had over 10 deer in the yard ranging from bucks to month old babies, turkeys, and jack rabbits. It was so relaxing drinking wine in rocking chairs in the evening and enjoying coffee in the morning. Not too far from down town or the wine tours, even had a chance to hit the gun range in Kerrville. The cabin was easy to access by Motorcycle and has all the comforts of home, we cooked in for two night and just enjoyed being away from the hustle of life. We will definitely be coming back. What a great mini vacation.

It was very enjoyable

  • 4 of 5

It was a great spot to stay for our anniversary trip. I was expecting it to be more secluded since it talks about sitting on 160 acres but it worked out ok. It was a quaint place. Piece of history which I thought was neat. The window AC unit did pretty good with cooling the house for the most part. Bathroom could get a little warm. Would come back!!

Historic and secluded

  • 5 of 5

Me and my husband loved this little place! The cabin itself, and the decor inside, have great history and create a cozy atmosphere. We were there to hike Enchanted Rock, and this was the perfect place to come back to and relax. You are very secluded (except for the friendly cows and wildlife of course) and surrounded by beautiful land. We enjoyed exploring the land. The bed is very comfortable and they even include little extras like fancy body wash and flavored coffee. I can defiantly see us coming back.
