About the Property

A 3 bedroom, 3 full bath, full kitchen, dining and living room that sleeps 9.

The two- story cabin offers ample space, excellent beds and furnishings, original oil paintings by hill country artists, views that inspire, a fully stocked kitchen for a big country breakfast, a two-person whirlpool tub. It is a great place for up to 9 people to get away for a weekend or for a family to reconnect for a week in the country air. The road it is located on is not a through road so there is almost no traffic. A great place to walk and bike. A wonderful place to sit on the balcony and look over the Palo Alto Creek Valley with a glass of wine and watch the moon rise!. If you are a cyclist, it is the perfect location to connect to the best biking roads in the hill country. We invite you to come and retreat to little piece of Texas hill country heaven.

A beautiful place to retreat....: This is a beautiful place to let your hair down and enjoy the views of the Texas Hill Country. This cabin is located on a farm with cows, chickens, clean air, peace and quiet. It is only three miles from downtown Fredericksburg, so the shopping, restaurants, and fun are only minutes away. The beautiful amenities and full kitchen make you feel right at home. A safe place for children, a great place to bike and walk and gaze at the moon and stars. This is a great place for bicyclists because we are at the entrance point to most of the great biking roads in the Hill Country.

In the heart of Texas Hill Country, Fredericksburg is a small city with a unique German flavor in its quaint bakeries, Hauptstrasse (Main Street) boutiques and generations-old peach orchards. Weekenders from nearby San Antonio and Austin have long appreciated the charm of the city's many B&Bs and 'Sunday House' Inns. The surrounding Texas Hill Country is home to lush vineyards, making up one of the country's largest viticultural areas. Fredericksburg and the surrounding areas host many wine-tasting events at the many local wineries.

Other Activities: wine-tasting, shopping, bike and motorcycle riding, deer hunting

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

About the owner: I am a member of the faculty at Texas Lutheran University in Seguin,TX. I am the director of choirs for the Texas Lutheran University Community Music Academy. I love to sing, ride horses, fish, teach, run our guest houses and babysit our first granddaughter.

Why the Owner Chose Fredericksburg, TX, USA:
We bought this property because of the beautiful houses, amazing trees, views and its short distance to downtown Fredericksburg. You are out in the country but minutes from town.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
The guest house has beautiful touches of wood trim and tile floors, high ceilings, beautiful views, peace and quiet. The new third bedroom is a very romantic and cozy retreat with ensuite bathroom.
