Property description

The unique, charming Potter's Cottage is the private and separate half of a 120 year old limestone house. It is located in a country-like setting just 4 blocks from Marketplatz on Main Street. There are two bedrooms, one with a queen bed, the other has two twin beds. One room is 4 steps up, the other 9 steps down from the comfortable living room. Walk through the private entrance into a living room filled with art. Two outdoor seating areas, one with a chiminea, offer a lovely setting to enjoy the drier, cooler weather of the Texas Hill Country. The patios are fenced as this is a pet friendly home away from home.
Finn, the owner of this house is an award winning potter. The art- filled rooms reflect her love of beauty, simplicity and the hand made.
You'll enjoy a quiet stay here, reminiscent of simpler times in a small Texas town.

Manager info

Year Purchased: 1966

About: Finn Alban, is the current owner of this historic farm house bought by her parents in 1966 as a place to retire. She is a 5th generation Texan and an award winning potter who creates pottery and sculpture in her studio behind the house. Finn's portion of the house is completely separate from the B&B.

Why Fredericksburg:
'While growing up in San Antonio, I had often visited the Hill Country as a child. Even then, I knew that some day, some way, I would live there. When my son was 4 years old, that opportunity came and we moved here to this very special small town with its wonderful community.'

The Unique Benefits at this Bed And Breakfast:
This antique and art filled property, is a well cared for, family home that has in the past, sheltered many people in a loving way. The sun bleached limestone walls give this house it's rightful sense of place in the Texas Hill Country.
