About the property

3 bedroom, 2.5 bath ranch with large pool in tranquil rural rolling hills.

Enjoy the sunset while sipping award winning, local wine on the Texas sized, wrap-around porch overlooking the hills of Texas. This private, luxury country ranch is nestled in a rural pasture surrounded by rolling hills, mature trees and abundant wildlife. Unwind after travelling in the deluxe stone steam room on the back porch, then take a dip in the sparkling in-ground pool. With a pleasant 5’ depth and easy access underwater steps, the refreshing, clear blue water beckons you to enter. Beautiful underwater lights adds to the tranquil serenity of evening swimming. Pool noodles, rafts and life preservers are provided, although children’s sizes are not included. Fire up the gas grill, pour a glass of wine and settle in for the evening.

Other lovely features of the porch include 4 Adirondack chairs, a wicker love seat, 2 zero gravity lounge chairs, 3 wrought iron café tables and chairs (12 total) and two lounge chairs by the pool.

Our guests will find themselves right at home when they stay with us. The large kitchen was made for entertaining and is fully outfitted with cookware, dishes, silverware, glasses, wine glasses and coffee/tea mugs. You’ll find a coffeemaker and supplies for coffee and tea, basic condiments and spices and the occasional seasonal surprise like our famous Hill Country peaches when in season. The side-by-side refrigerator has ample space for large crowds and an ice maker that we keep full for you. Enjoy gathering in the kitchen around the kitchen bar that has four oversized bar stools for your comfort.

The cheerful, sunny, dining room has large windows with gorgeous views and is home to a custom built, traditional 6’ cedar farm table that seats 6 comfortably.

The living room is cozy with a ranch atmosphere with ample seating for bigger crowds. The L shaped leather couch is a stunner and is loaded with comfy throw pillows and blankets for snuggling in front of the lovely gas burning fireplace. There is also a 60” flat screen TV with a remote. The house is outfitted with high speed internet, Wi-Fi and Dish TV.

The master bedroom is very large and has two sets of gorgeous French doors that provides access the wrap around porch and the pool views. There is also a 32” flat screen TV with remote, an antique roll top desk, a quaint sitting area and a large walk-in closet. Off the Master is a luxury, oversized whirlpool bathtub and a stunning walk-in glass block shower with a built-in comfort bench.

On the other side of the ranch house are 2 more bedrooms. The larger room sleeps 4-6 comfortably in 2 sets of bunk beds (full mattress on the lower, twin on the top). This room also has a convenient half bath powder room. There is a smaller, cozy room with a brand new full size, memory foam mattress and good sized closet. There is a full bath and shower just off the kitchen. You will find plush towels, bath products and the freshest bed linens to sink into at the end of your day.

Should you need more sleeping space, there is a nice walk-through den which can serve as a bedroom and sleeps two when the convertible couch is opened. The 4” thick, full size, new mattress is comfortable; and the room has a small (non-cable) television with a DVD player that comes with a small library of DVD’s, and various board games available for your entertainment.

There is spacious carport parking at the front entrance of the house. The 6 acre pasture property is gorgeous and the neighboring pond attracts deer, birds and other wildlife for your pleasure. It’s a quiet, private, tranquil and beautiful retreat for small to large groups. We provide you with a complimentary guest breakfast voucher all of our guests to dine at the Sunset Grill, which is the premier breakfast and lunch bistro in town, and which we also own. We happily welcome you to the ranch with a complimentary bottle of local Hill Country wine.

If you have special needs, please let us know. Come stay a while. We extend a warm Texas welcome!

About Angela Mancino

When I travel or go on vacation, I stay at vacation homes just like this one, and I love it! So I decided to buy the beautiful Casa Bella Ranch for use as a vacation home right here in our charming, historic, little town. It is my second home in Fredericksburg and my third business. I also own two popular restaurants in town both with locals and tourists, Woerner Cafe and Sunset Grill that I hope you will visit.

Since moving to Fredericksburg from California and opening my first restaurant nearly ten years ago, my whole family except for one sister, and my lifelong best friend have all joined me in our charming Hill Country town. There is just something so special about this little town, and I know you'll discover that too when you visit.

Because I've stayed at many vacation homes in my travels, I know what I would like and I've tried to provide those comforts and conveniences for you. But if you need or want anything I haven't thought of, just ask! I'm known around town and a "fixer", so I bet I can handle your requests!

What makes this chateau / country house unique

Honestly, I wanted to move in when I saw this gorgeous property. It's only 6 miles from town, but those six miles are some of the prettiest cattle filled, rolling hills around. By the time you reach our six acre ranch, you are already feeling peaceful and relaxed. The house is quite large which is great for groups, and the wrap around porch that leads to the stunning pool, sauna and rustic gardens offers remarkable views in every direction. The tranquil, country privacy and homey comfort of this house sealed the deal for me!

Picturesque Hill Country Retreat

  • 5 of 5

Our two small family(s) really enjoyed our weekend stay. It was a perfect getaway. The house was clean, and had all the amenities promised. The owner was very responsive when communicating. Our 2 young kids enjoyed swimming all day, we barbecued on the grill, and most importantly the house had everything that we needed to cook great meals throughout our stay.

Moreover, the shaded porch was lovely, we used it for just about every meal. The surrounding landscape was well maintained and surrounded by beautiful hills.

On our last day, we took a very short ride into downtown Fredericksburg and had brunch at our host's restaurant. Even our meal was wonderful and our host took the time out of her busy day to greet us. We will be back!

Fredericksburg attracts visitors to our historic downtown for our ongoing weekend Festivals, our uniqueTexas history (Nimitz Museum, architecture) excellent boutique style shopping, our emerging art and music scene and for our many local wineries. We've stocked the house with the local tourist guides and restaurant listings. A visit downtown is a must, and we highly recommend touring Enchanted Rock or a wine tour on the 290 Wine Road. We are also fond of spending a lazy afternoon at Luckenbach, TX for the best country music, cold beer and light food fare. Everyone is somebody at Luckenbach, Texas! There are wineries downtown, as well, but the vineyards are extra special.
