heritage and traditions of the Texas Hill Country. John and Karen have German ancestry and can’t wait to welcome you to The Axis Inn.

After living in Houston, Austin, and Colorado Springs, John and Karen wanted to settle in the Hill Country to make friends and raise a family. They love the Texas-sized hospitality that Fredericksburg has to offer.

Perfect home for a weekend away

  • 5 of 5

Cannot day enough good things about this home. If I could give you more than 5 stars I would. The layout of the home is perfect for a group of people to all be together and not feel crammed. The best part was how close we were to Main St but honestly we wanted to hang out at the house most of the time. 5 + stars

Great House and great location!!

  • 5 of 5

Karen and John were great hosts with a beautiful house located only a few minute walk from Main Street and our new favorite local bar, Buc's. Karen and John were easy to communicate with and always replied within 30 minutes and even helped us out with a last minute addition. Thank you for a great weekend and a beautiful house.

Perfect, even better than the pictures!

  • 5 of 5

Highly recommend! The house was beautiful! Clean and comfortable, in a quiet neighborhood just a short walk from all the best parts of town. The house was well equipped, and truly provides for your every need. I’ve rented many houses before, and this was the first rental that was truly a home - right down to the beautiful dishes in the kitchen and nice soap in the bathrooms.

Unfortunately we visited on the hottest weekend of the year (104 degrees) so we didn’t get to enjoy any of the beautiful amenities in the backyard, but we were so impressed with the house that we’re already looking for an excuse to go back during cooler months.

Beautiful, Convenient, Highly Recommend

  • 5 of 5

Four of my dear friends and I stayed here for a girls' trip to celebrate my sister's 60th birthday. I cannot say enough good things about the Axis Inn! The house itself is beautiful, spacious, clean, and well decorated. The owners are very helpful as far as giving ideas on things to do and places to go in the area. The house is conveniently located within a couple of blocks of the main drag so driving is not necessary. We had a wonderful time and will absolutely stay here again sometime. 5+ Stars!!
