Why Homer H. Hillis, Jr. chose Fredericksburg

People like the property since its close to town but in a quiet area. We like it for the same reasons. Its a late 60's style house but we have redone most of it to upgrade it. East 290 is a very high traffic area, west 290 not so much. People like the goats. Outside is a fire pit that's my favorite part of the place, good place to relax and enjoy the stars.

What makes this farmhouse unique

Close to town but not too close, Outside fire pit and cooking area. Comfortable home with 2 large seating areas to visit and relax

Fredricksburg Trip

  • 5 of 5

Very nice quiet place, could use a thorough cleaning.

Other than that, the house was as described, and we really did enjoy our stay.

It was situated on a large property with goats and horses, and we enjoyed watching the deer in the early mornings.

It's not far from town, and was a quick trip.

Loved the furnishings and decor, the master bed was comfortable, ( the other ladies mentioned their beds were not) and could use a few more bath towels.

I highly recommend this property to anyone visiting Fredericksburg.

Thank you.

Spacious with large kitchen and yard

  • 5 of 5

We rented the home and hosted Easter lunch for family. The house was perfect for our needs. Big refrigerator, stove, and counter space. We enjoyed sitting around the huge fire pit and visiting with family. We had family staying in various places across town, but we all met together at this house for meals. The bathrooms were in need of up-dating and the dishwasher was out-of-order. But we had a wonderful time and the house was a wonderful meeting area. There were 2 living rooms large enough to accommodate our family. Nothing luxurious, but it certainly met our needs which was to be a large gathering spot for family at Easter.

Great house. Convenient to town. Quiet country setting

  • 5 of 5

Everything was great. The only issue we had was with the shower heads. Hall bath head needs decalcifying or replaced as it has poor flow. Master bath tends to spray out of the shower as there is no way to secure the spray. Both easy fixes. Everything else was great and we really enjoyed the stay. Would definitely come again

Fun property near Fredericksburg

  • 4 of 5

Beds are very comfortable! House was spacious and plenty of sitting room. Kitchen has plenty of things to cook with, great coffee Keurig machine. No TV, but great selection of VHS movies (old selection) and a dvd player if you bring your own. Very cool back yard and front are pastures with 3 sweet horses that LOVE people and some FUNNY sweet goats!!! There is an awesome fire pit outside to relax around and or to cook on. The home overall will remind you or your grandmas house...nice, farm house feel.
