About Pat Smith

Pat Smith owner, builder & designer. Grew up in Panama CZ. and Blanco Tx. College at Texas State. Married to Carletta Smith ( Langerhans ) from Fredericksburg. A very talented florist, artist, decorator and mother of five.

Pat Smith purchased this cabin in 2012

Why Pat Smith chose Hill Country

This entire city block was inherited from my father in law Chester Langerhans who started & ran Langerhans Florist and Nursery along with my wife Carletta who worked as the head florist and manager for 33 yrs. We wanted to find a positive use for the land as it is the only Langerhans property still in the family. As a builder I had the opportunity to design & build my vision for this cabin & our first cabin Fire Fly next door. My wife Carletta has worked her majic with furniture, decorations, & her own paintings. The cabins were built by my son Karson & stepson Woody who both work for me. We are very proud of the quality and uniqueness of this cabin.

What makes this cabin unique

Feels like the country but two blks. from Main St

Inexperienced, confused owner

  • 1 of 5

**Renter beware**Property was better than expected and pleasant for our weekend getaway (6-9 Jan) for husband's birthday. That part was great. Afterwards the owner sends me an email 9 days after we left about his housekeeper having to clean extra hair from the floor, how he can't prove that I had a dog in his property, and that he will have to start charging a security deposit now. I didn't bring any pets (just in case anyone was wondering) and both hub and I have short hair. So just be really careful with this owner. I use vrbo regularly for about 4yrs now, never travel with pets, and have never even heard of an owner behaving this way. He even picked up his check while we were away and turned the fireplace/lights off. Pretty sure he would have seen the alleged pet during his visit. Anyway, the behavior of Mr. Smith leaves a bad taste, and I wouldn't want anyone else to encounter a similar experience. Good luck in your property search! Thanks for reading this extra long post.

Owner's Response: In response to this guest negative comments I would like anyone interested to know the whole story. My cleaning person is also my sons mother in law. She has been cleaning B & Bs for at least 15yrs. She showed me the hair that took her three cleanings to get all up. There was none in the bed so I don't believe it was human hair. I did not ask for more money only that I was concerned because we advertise no pets for people with allergies and the extra cleaning. She also mentioned that I turned the fireplace off. Yes I did. We have central heat. The gas fireplace is mostly for aesthetics and should not be left burning when you leave for the day. She did not mention that I gave them a military discount to start with. Please just read our other reviews. Not one negative review in seven years. Thanks Pat

Loved this cabin - perfect for our stay!!!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I went to Fredericksburg for the weekend to celebrate his birthday. We stayed in Fire Fly - we LOVED this cabin - was really nice and clean and only two blocks from Main Street which was a huge plus. Pat, the owner, was wonderful to deal with - even bringing us a new coffee pot late at night so we would have fresh coffee the next morning.

Will definitely recommend this property to friends and will definitely stay here again!!!

Dragonfly: Relaxing Romantic Retreat

  • 5 of 5

I wanted to surprise my wife with a two night get away. I can't tell you how thankful I am to have found the Dragonfly. This was an amazing home. My wife was floored with the surprise. This has earned my brownie points for at least the rest of the year! The home was so beautiful and comfortable in every way. I know I am only repeating what other have said, but the outdoor shower was fantastic! The close proximity to the downtown scene was a huge benefit. A quick relaxing walk, and you are right in the middle of town. Good food, drinks, shopping and entertainment.

Peace & Tranquility - Home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

I can't even begin to express in words how amazing this little cabin is....the pictures are beautiful but they hardly to the property justice! When we walked in to Dragon Fly our attention was immediately drawn to the fire place. Please take a moment to read the families story by the fireplace. They not only decorated the property together but they cabin was built and designed BY THE FAMILY! How incredible is that? The house is very large and I adored the front/back porches. We spent every evening outside with a glass of wine enjoying not only the view but the tranquility this property brought to us! We had everything we needed at our finger tips...the bath robes were such an added bonus, especially when using the OUTDOOR SHOWER or the ENORMOUS Jacuzzi tub!

The cabin is literally 2 minutes away from main street and closer to the edge of town so we could drive to any winery within 15 minutes (stonewall wineries etc.). Fredericksburg was such a romantic place and this cabin really brought it all together for us! Pat and his wife are so easy to communicate with..just laid back property owners. We can't wait to plan our return trip with some friends so we can all enjoy ourselves.

Ps. Make sure you park on the left hand side in the driveway...not the right side..it's a drainage ditch!!! We figured that out!~
