About Michael Meek

We have lived in the Hill Country of Texas since 2003 and love the hills, beautiful views, great weather and most of all the people. We lived on the property from 2009 until 2016 raising our family. One of our greatest joys is to know so many people are coming to stay on our property and make life long memories.

Michael Meek purchased this guest house in 2013

Why Michael Meek chose Fredericksburg

We fell in love with this property because it is close to town (1 mile) yet in the country. So, we can enjoy all the shopping and restaurants of Main Street, yet escape to the quiet of the country.

What makes this guest house unique

Uniquely landscaped and restored, the property has original outbuildings that have been incorporated into a special place to enjoy and relax.

Great Location

  • 5 of 5

We loved how quiet the area was yet we were only a few minutes away from Downtown Fredrichsburg. We enjoyed the cabin as it was the perfect size for a few days of down time. It was nicely decorated and had everything we needed and then some. Next time we come to Fredrichsburg we will stay in one of the four cabins in this complex.

A Tiny Slice of Heaven

  • 5 of 5

My boyfriend and I stayed at the Pumphouse for a weekend in Fredericksburg that included dining and shopping, as well as a wine tour. The Pumphouse was the PERFECT place to come home to at the end of the day. It was stylish, warm and comfortable, well-decorated, and truly an oasis. It was close enough to town to enjoy the sites, while also being private and secluded. We thoroughly enjoyed the backyard, which included a hot tub, outdoor shower, fire pit, and a hammock. The Gathering Guest Houses will be our go-to for any future Fredericksburg trips. Thank you to the home owners for a romantic, relaxing getaway nestled in a perfect location!

The Pumphouse and property was extremely quaint, private & very well kept.A couples perfect getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We were overwhelmingly pleased with the grounds, the unique charm of each room in the pumphouse and all the details to the decor. “I’m With You” touched my heart upon sight. The bed was the most comfortable I’ve ever slept on and we absolutely treasured the romantic patio fire pit & hot tub. The indoor fireplace was another perfect romantic way to relax before bed. The “Make-up” black towel didn’t go unnoticed; loved the thought put into each detail of the Pumphouse! We will return to it &/or another house on the property!
