This is an oversized German Architecture styled home nestled among 11 beautiful acres of nature at its finest. Cross through the entry gate and find yourself driving under the massive oaks that line the quarter mile drive to your home away from home. Within these well maintained trees and native grasses reside the deer, wild turkeys and an occasional roadrunner or two.
Half of the property allows for the wildlife to roam and the other half for the longhorns and miniature donkeys to graze. Throw the grazers a treat or two, They will be happy to oblige. However, if its creature comforts one desires then the house will not disappoint. The interior kitchen or outdoor grill, dining room, and all bedrooms are all accommodating. However, we will assume (based on all others feedback) that the upstairs saloon will be the indoor place of gathering. Bring your friends and family and pour yourself a root beer at the bar. Enjoy a game of pool or just sit back and catch the game on the flat screen TV and enjoy freshly popped popcorn in the saloon. With the evening stars in mind, there is an outdoor fireplace alongside the Jacuzzi where you can relax away the hours.
Our family consists of six, okay 5 not counting the dog. However, the children are now young adults, yet time spent together at VRBO's around the nation are times that bonded the family together forever.

A Great Location to get away from the hustle and bustle of life! We enjoyed spending time with friends and family in a relaxes country setting.
This house is oversized and has all the amenities anyone would desire. The turn of the century Saloon room is of particular interest as it is the focal gathering point in the home according to all who have stayed!! If not the Saloon, then you can enjoy the outdoor hot tub and fireplace. Grill your food out here or sit back and relax and let the stars above inspire your yet to be written novel.
Thank you so much for letting us rent your place for the weekend - we had a GREAT time! It was the perfect place for our group this weekend - perfect! :) Thank you for your hospitality! We will be back soon!
We are so glad we chose this spacious getaway for our family Thanksgiving! It was just as explained" an old German farm house". It is an older home and could use some repairs, but it is loaded with character! Plenty of room for the 9 of us. And the Saloon was a big hit! Everything on the outside was perfect except for the cockle-burrs. Our Grandchildren loved the Long horns!
We enjoyed our annual family trip to Fredericksburg this past week and we couldn't have been more pleased. The house is great, enough room for the whole family. We enjoyed the great game room and the outdoor fireplace. The house was very clean. The kitchen is well equipped and updated with all good appliances. We had young children with us and found the house to be very "kid friendly" They loved getting to feed the longhorns. Monique is super! A pleasure to deal with. The only thing that we were disappointed with was that the hot tub wasn't working, the kids had looked forward to that, but there were so many positive things that that wasn't a big issue. We look forward to returning next year and would highly recommend this vacation spot!!!
The good - this is a great house for a party weekend - we had all our family there for my wife's 60th - nine of us. There is a big games room with a pool table, lots of board games and cards and a real bar. There is plenty of room and the kitchen is well equipped although a little dated. Monique responded quickly to texts and kindly allowed us to extend our stay for a few extra hours on our last day.
The not so good: the hot tub was not working and didn't look in too good a shape. When I texted Monique about it, she replied that they were trying to repair it and gave me a $25 a day rebate. Not sure that was reasonable compensation when that was one of the criteria on which we selected the property. Generally the exterior looked run down. Paving stones were knocked down and broken, and there were broken solar lights dotted around the place. The exterior lights did not work very efficiently.
That being said, we enjoyed our weekend and it is in a lovely spot - perfect for a party with a group and close enough to Fredericksburg to visit.
The house was Great, enough room for 10 adults, close enough to town to enjoy all the fun things Fredericksburg has to offer, but just far enough to have the deer come visit every evening at sunset. We would love to come stay again, had a great time.
We had the fortunate experience of staying at an excellent place that exceeded our expectations! It was great to share a home with 2 other couples we traveled with. We were able to grill out and enjoy the patio and outdoor fireplace as well as the great game room. It was close to downtown and to the vineyards and pumpkin patches - plenty to do! The house was clean and well kept - extremely happy with everything and we look forward to returning for another memorable vacation!
We celebrated my wife's birthday with a large group in this house and it was the perfect fit for all of us. It's on a beautiful property with Longhorns (that you can feed!), it was very clean when we arrived and had everything we could have needed to enjoy ourselves for the weekend. Our group especially enjoyed the game room and sitting on the back patio at night by the fireplace and star gazed. I would definitely recommend this property to anyone that is looking for a relaxing weekend with friends in the Texas hill country.
