Opa's Barn (in German "Opa" means grandfather) is truly a delight. What was once an old frame barn is now a charming guest house. It's located only three miles from Fredericksburg in a peaceful country setting.
A front porch of stone welcomes you to the living room and kitchen. Everywhere you look are reminders of the past. A mirror, old fashioned lamp, shaving mirror, kitchen cabinet, china closet and the list goes on to include a wonderful collection of antique dishes you are welcome to use. Even the curtains are of lace from the past. This room is a pleasure for relaxing, having a cup of coffee and enjoying the scenery as you gaze out the window.
The upstairs bedroom features a queen-size bed with a lovely quilt. Wonderful antique pictures, benches, and bedside tables remind you of Oma and Opa's house. The bath has an old fashioned footed tub (you can shower in it, too) and more antique shelves and mirror. Throughout the "Barn" natural wood is used for the ceilings and floors.
The modern-day Opa and Oma who renovated the "Barn" added a deck off the kitchen and the bedroom for guests to enjoy the outdoors with a view of the fields, oak trees, the nearby hills, deer and magnificent sunsets. A picnic table has been placed in the shade of oak trees. A nearly constant breeze is another pleasure to enjoy.
