Property description

Located steps away from the heart of Fredericksburg’s acclaimed Main Street shopping, dining, arts district, College Street Retreat is the ideal place to stay during your Texas Hill Country visit. Also, check out our sister property #753471.

This charmingly updated 4-bedroom, 2-bath guest house is perfectly appointed for couples, families or small group getaways. Cottage Street Retreat offers every contemporary amenity — such as high-speed wifi and cable TV — coupled with classic small-town appeal.

The Retreat’s all-new gourmet kitchen features stainless steel appliances — including a dishwasher! — Granite countertops and an array of cooking accessories to inspire the chef in you.

Dine-in at the kitchen’s granite breakfast bar or at-table in the separate dining room. Or you can fire up the gas grill on your private deck with table and seating for six.

Tired of sight-seeing? Relax in the living room in front of the large 42-inch flat screen Samsung Smart TV. A DVD player is provided, as well as a stereo sound system for your iPhone or Smartphone.

Wash the day away in bathrooms equipped with the innovative Delta In2ition™ Two-In-One 5-Spray Hand Shower/Shower Head. Then retire to your private haven on pillow-top beds appointed with antique quilts and luxurious Comphy™ sheets.

College Street Retreat even has a stackable LG washer and dryer for your convenience.

Whether you’re looking for an intimate getaway or a base of operations for family fun, College Street Retreat is your vacation home away from home, a true refuge from routine.

To fully experience Fredericksburg, ask about our City Biking Tour Package. Casually cycle with a local and feel the soul of Fredericksburg. Texas Bike Tours can personalize the tour based on your preferences. $45 a person for a 2-3 hour tour. $30 - $45 for a bike rental with Jack & Adams Bicycles. Prices based on type of bike selected for route and proper fit for guest.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: 11 year Bed and Breakfast award winner from our sister property 'A Place in Time', former corporate executives ready to help you enjoy our magnificent hill country town.

Why the Owner Chose Fredericksburg, TX, USA:
The location was fantastic. Also, the house was set to be demolished and the bank lowered the price so we bought it to create a beautiful new home and 3 months later we have rewired, repainted, refurbished floors and expanded one of the bathrooms.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
4 blocks from Main Street. You can walk to many of our downtown attractions and festivals or drive less than 9 miles to reach some of the 290 wineries.
