About the property

Guest Quarters, 1 Bedroom/1 Bath (sleeps 4)

Located only 7 miles from downtown Fredericksburg in the heart of the Texas Hill Country and Wine Country makes this the perfect place to get away, relax, or to enjoy all that Fredericksburg has to offer. The Guest Quarters were constructed inside of a large country barn overlooking Bear Creek on 33 acres.

Creekside was beautifully constructed and decorated in Texas Hill Country charm, antiques, and stained concrete floors. A large wood burning stone fireplace with a 40” HD flat screen is the focal point in the spacious living/dining area. This room has attention to detail with a vaulted ceiling constructed from long leaf pine reclaimed from a 1920’s German Homestead in addition to the custom cabinetry throughout. The kitchen has granite counter tops and is fully equipped with full size appliances, pot/pans, dishes. The bedroom also has a vaulted ceiling and is very cozy and quiet for a good night’s sleep on the luxury queen size mattress high thread count sheets. The bathroom is very spacious with a large walk in shower.

Outside, there is plenty of outdoor lighting and the huge pergola offers a place to relax, dine, or enjoy views of the Hill Country. In addition, there is also a wood burning stone fire pit with plenty of comfortable seating to break the winter chill to enjoy family/friends. The yard is beautifully landscaped with Texas native plants to attract butterflies and hummers. Be sure to explore the property to enjoy the abundant wildlife and song birds. You can also beat the heat by taking a short hike to the “swimming hole” for a dip in the clear waters of Bear Creek (during non-drought conditions).

What a Beautiful Stay

  • 5 of 5

This was one of the best stays anywhere. Even with the torrential downpours from the tropical storm making land, the barn was absolutely lovely! The hummingbirds and deer were and out and were everywhere. What a treat to see them all. The pictures do NOT do Shirley and Wayne's place justice. The cookies were a special treat and we loved them! Thank you so much! I guarantee, I will be back and this time with my husband!

Semi-modern Hill Country Bliss

  • 5 of 5

We had a great trip and this property was outstanding!...Took my 15 year old son to South Texas to the Hill country to experience what i did as a kid. He had a ball, and these folks are great, because from the get go, his eyes lit up at the sight of fresh homemade cookies on the kitchen counter. The design and woodwork in this barn is beyond belief. The pine ceilings was old growth pine, looked to be re-surfaced, and not over stated...well done. The interior had been decorated to the T and inviting. The courtyard was native stone and cedar picket fenced, well manicured, with a stone fire pit and a great pergola. Every morning there were deer in the field just outside the courtyard, hundreds of hummingbirds and even turkey from time to time. It was quiet and far removed form all the noises of Fredricksburg, and well worth the eight minutes it took to drive to town. We would love to stay again, and five stars is not enough.

Cozy, serene barn with amazing wildlife!

  • 5 of 5

This barn is located just outside of Fredericksburg. Be sure and look for deer along the roads. The Creekside Barn was a beautiful, cozy place to unwind. My favorite part was watching the hummingbirds feed- like 20+ at a time! My husband loved watching the deer and even some jack rabbits! We couldn’t enjoy the fire pit and pergola due to the July heat, but luckily the inside was quite perfect! Everything was super clean and decorated so nicely. Movies, deck of cards, reading material, pantry items, toiletries, extra pillows, even binoculars- they really thought of everything! It felt like we were staying with friends. We were even greeted with delicious homemade chocolate chip walnut cookies which we enjoyed all weekend! You won’t be disappointed here!

Wonderful place!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Creekside Barn for the first time and loved it. I can’t say enough good things about this location. The house is wonderful, clean and the host has equipped the kitchen well. The grounds surrounding the house are beautiful and inviting. We grilled a couple of nights so we could stay around the house and enjoy the property. The hummingbirds kept us entertained while the deer would wander in and out during the day/evenings. We have definitely found our new rental place in Fredericksburg and will be going back.

Completely Relaxed and Revitalized

  • 5 of 5

Thank you, Shirley and Wayne, for a wonderful week. I arrived at Creekside needing rest and relaxation, and when I departed, I felt rejuvenated. Shirley and Wayne's property is very lovely. Inside the barn was very comfortable and spacious for my needs. The kitchen contained everything I needed to prepare all my meals. Outside, near the barn was cared for beautifully, and I enjoyed sitting on the front porch during the hottest time of the day. My favorite spot though was the sitting area overlooking the creek. It was secluded and quiet. I enjoyed reading and viewing the wildlife, and I saw jackrabbits, turkeys, armadillos, and deer from my view. One of the highlights of my trip was practicing Qigong at night while hearing the frogs, watching the lightning bugs, and feeling the cool breeze. My walks around the perimeter of the property were rejuvenating and allowed me more views of the wildlife. The owners were very kind, and I enjoyed my conversations with them. Creekside is an amazing place to stay. Not only is it peaceful, but it is a short drive to Main Street. I purchased a pie from Fredericksburg Pie Company and it was fabulous too. Thank you, Shirley and Wayne! I will never forget my stay at Creekside.
