The Gathering Guesthouses presents The Cottage. Built in 1933 as a red cinder block storage building, The Cottage has been used for storage until remodeled in 2009 as a private guest house. The Cottage boasts the original feel of an historic building with the charm of modern comfort. A primary design feature is the roll top tub in the master bedroom separated from the king size bed by a red brick double sided gas fireplace. The private outdoor courtyard utilizes an early 1900s copper fixture for the outdoor shower, private hot tub, fire pit, television, and customized solar shades.

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. In 2016, we relocated to a house in town and now the property can be enjoyed by so many. 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 2011

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.

                                              Quiet, Unique, & Cozy

                                              Byron H.Beaumont

                                              We thought this property to be very quiet, cozy, and certainly unique. The owner seems to have put a lot of thought in to the layout of the property with the other homes and the way they are set up. We really enjoyed the gas-log fireplace in the bedroom since it was rather chilly the couple of days we were in Fredericksburg. Unfortunately we did not get to use the hot tub as a result of the outside weather. The property is located on the outskirts of town on what used to be an old homestead, so there is not a lot of commercial or retail activity right down the street. We liked that aspect because it kept the surroundings quiet. I think we would definitely stay again in the Cottage or at one of the other houses on the property --- I think the Pumphouse or the Barn would be next on our list.
