Why April Okerholm chose Fredericksburg
Legacy Ranch was a dream come true and is an incredibly special place for our family and friends. Fredericksburg has been a sweet spot in our hearts for years and we wanted to merge the beauty of the Texas hill country with the story of some of our family members and honor those who have had a big impact on the world. Although they're beautiful year-round, the houses inspire the magic of Christmas when each house and every room is impeccably decorated the first week of December. Past guests tell us their family memories were greatly enriched when they celebrated Christmas here. The Dr. Okerholm Loghaus provides a cozy and quaint Christmas with sparkling lights and nature-inspired decor. The Sieben Salthaus incorporates its German heritage with Nutcrackers, brightly colored ornaments and more than a few Christmas trees throughout the house. The N.K. Harper Barnhouse holds a massive 14 foot star-topped tree with decorations true to Texas and the house's namesake. The columns of the barn are accented with long strands of garland and sweet Christmas decor you've likely never see before. While acquiring the property, we found a magical sweet spot that we knew would capture the incredible magic and abundant love this place holds...starting in Spring 2020, guests can be married here under the glowing shady post oaks & massive ambient chandeliers in Legacy Chapel.
What makes this Cabin unique
We think you'll appreciate the private gated gentleman's ranch along with the Texas hill country views, wildlife and serenity. For those looking to be married or renew vows, Legacy Ranch will feature Legacy Chapel beginning Spring 2020. Legacy Chapel is a majestic steel silhouette of a country church nestled in a perfect keyhole shape grove of shady Post Oaks which are filled with the sounds of native songbirds. Designed by April Okerholm of The Savant Home in collaboration with Core Custom Metal Works in Jarrell, Texas, this one-of-a-kind Chapel is going to become the enchanting backdrop that your guests will always remember. The simplicity of this open-air steel marvel is symbolic of your iron-clad promise to love, cherish and honor your love. Whether it be at dusk or you choose an intimate night time wedding, the canopy of trees will be illuminated while three 5' tall, 5.5' wide chandeliers provide the perfect sparkle of light. Legacy Ranch Guest Houses sleeps 28 across three historic guest houses on a private gated ranch located just 8 minutes from Main Street in Fredericksburg, Texas. Legacy Chapel can host up to 100 for your wedding day while the couple enjoys their entire wedding weekend on the ranch with their closest 26 friends and family. Legacy Chapel will be complete in time for Spring 2020 Weddings. Bella Chateau, a French-Texas Hill Country style cottage, is planned for later in 2020 and will privately host the bride and groom.

We really enjoyed our stay at the Okerhaus log cabin. Everything was very clean and super comfortable. We were a little concerned with 6 women sharing 1 bathroom, but it ended up being totally fine! Sitting by the cozy fireplace with wine and snacks was our favorite memory. Erik and April are awesome hosts and we hope to come back soon!
Cozy cabin, lovely hostess!
My aunt, her sister, and cousin all stayed in the Dr. Okerholm Loghaus for a family reunion weekend. While I didn't stay overnight, I did take a tour of the home and property, and let me tell you, I wish I could have! The cabin is so cozy, and April has done a phenomenal job of decorating it and making it a warm and inviting home away from home. She even dedicated a wall to not only the history of the home itself, but also to its namesake, Dr. Okerholm, the owner's father. My aunt and her sister raved about how comfortable the beds were, and really enjoyed the luxurious bathroom that had everything they needed. All of this modern luxury in a rustic 1800s log cabin - perfect! The property is beautiful and peaceful. You're bound to see wildlife roaming around the acreage. April is such a kind and professional hostess. She answered all my questions promptly and was always just a phone call away. She even brought over a stack of DVDs for my family to pick from for a movie night. Everything in the cabin was so clean and fresh, it even smelled wonderful. Thank you so much, April, for making my family's accommodations perfect for our special weekend!
The cabin was beautiful, clean, updated, just generally very well kept. Additionally, Amy, the host, was very responsive anytime we had an issue.
We would stay again!
Thank you so much! It was awesome to meet & host you and we look forward to hosting you again!
The property is beautifully maintained!
So enjoyed my overnight stay at the log cabin. It was very peaceful and relaxing. Clean and comfortable. Enjoyed looking out at the open spaces and trees. Enjoyed the fire while having my morning coffee. The trip into town only took about 10 mins (drive). The entire property was lovely.
Thank you, Liz! You're a delightful guest and we look forward to hosting you again!
The entire experience was beyond expectation, and we will definitely stay at Legacy Ranch again in the future. I highly recommend Legacy Ranch for a quiet, cozy and peaceful getaway that's just minutes from the town of Fredericksburg.
Thank you, James! We were pleased to meet you and host you after the holidays. We look forward to hosting you again next time...
