Keidel Inn & Gasthaus (Historic/Downtown)

Bedrooms 6
Half Baths1
Property type house
Minimum Stay 1 - 2 nights


About the property

6 bedrooms, 4 full bathrooms, 1 half bathroom, sleeps 14

History meets luxury...and the Keidel Inn and Gasthaus. This premium property is located on Main Street only steps from the main shopping district. Take a stroll to the Nimitz Museum just across the way or enjoy an evening walk to the best restaurants Fredericksburg has to offer. Enjoy morning coffee on the fabulous garden patio by the fish pond. The main building on the front of the property facing Main Street is the Keidel Inn. Just behind the Inn is the Keidel Gasthaus.

Of course the charm of this property dates back to 1846 when three lots were deeded to Dr. Wilhelm Keidel, the first medical doctor in Fredericksburg. Keidel Inn and Gasthaus is located on a large lot in Fredericksburg that has been in the Keidel family for well over 160+ years. The Gasthaus was built originally facing Main Street and on the very north part of the property. It was the first home of Dr. Victor and Clara Stieler Keidel after their marriage on June 13, 1909. Behind the house stood a screened in large kitchen separated from the wood frame home for safety reasons.

In 1928, the Gasthaus was moved to its present location in order to build the Spanish style home that now houses the Keidel Inn. Two historic oak trees stand near the southwest corner of the main house and mark the spot where the first surveyors of the new city of Fredericksburg buried their tools so when the settlers arrived the following year they would have them to start the construction of their new homes. They built a campfire over the spot so Indians and other travelers would not be able to tell that the soil had been disturbed. The Keidels were a prominent family of physicians in early Fredericksburg and served the community for over 150 years. The property is owned by a granddaughter of Victor and Clara and is being operated as a B&B by a great grandson.

The upstairs portion of the main house offers three bedrooms (two rooms have a king bed, the third has two twins beds). The charming bathroom upstairs offers a tub/shower combination. Downstairs offers two bedrooms (one king & one queen), two baths for extra privacy, a large living room, dining room and foyer with impressive stairway. You will also enjoy a comfortable sitting area and full kitchen.

The Gasthaus has one king bedroom upstairs with a half-bath. Downstairs has a queen air mattress, sitting area, full kitchen & full bathroom.

If you’re looking for space, luxury and location, Keidel Inn & Gasthaus is the place for you!

Wonderful Stay!

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time we have rented this property in a group and the house did not disappoint. Roomy, great "homey" and quaint feel and right on the main drag. Highly recommend. Jeff was easy to work with and the breakfast bread and casseroles were a great touch!!

Perfect place

  • 5 of 5

We had the most amazing weekend in Fredricksburg and were most impressed with the comfort and beauty of the Keidel Inn & Gasthaus. When we were in the process of planning our trip and selecting the property, we were looking for authentic charm and character. This property is all of that and more. We were able to walk to everything. We do hope to return. thank you for sharing your beautiful place. Rick and Sandy

Incredible house and location!!!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed with another four couples in both sides of the Keidel Inn. We loved everything about it! Location was tremendous to take impromptu or planned individual or group walks. The house itself had so much character and had a backyard where the eight of us enjoyed the wonderful evenings in a great setting around a table, next to a fire pit. We met Jeff Lawrence the first day...great guy and he gave us some fantastic history of the place and area. We will definitely be back. Won't change a thing next time!!

great location for girls' get-away

  • 5 of 5

With a group of 6 friends, we rented both suites in the main house. There were plenty bedrooms, bathrooms, parking space and relaxing areas. The kitchen was large enough for several to be working at one time.The back patio was our favorite visiting space. The refrigerator was stocked with milk, oj, breakfast casseroles and fresh fruit. Delicious cinnamon rolls greeted us on arrival. Best of all was the location. We were able to walk to restaurants, galleries and shopping. We all agreed we would recommend Keidel Inn to others.

Excellent home and perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

First of all, we are a group of women that have been getting together for the last twenty years plus. We are from all over Texas so we move around to different areas for our "BAMMS" weekend. The stay at the Keidel Inn was absolutely wonderful! We loved the homey feel of the house, the bedrooms were nice and comfortable, the kitchen was spacious for gathering, the fireplace in the family room made the family room very cozy and the outdoor fireplace was wonderful! In all, everything was perfect. Of course, having four bathrooms and six bedrooms was an added comfort for us. We would come back anytime and we probably will! Thanks Jeff for all your help in making our weekend a joy!
