About Laura Furber

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.

Laura Furber purchased this house in 2013

Why Laura Furber chose Hill Country

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.

What makes this house unique

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.


Wonderful! 4.9/5 -

Great house with lots of room

  • 5 of 5

We spent Thanksgiving in Fredericksburg.

The house in walking distance of Main Street, where all the shopping is at.

We cooked a complete thanksgiving dinner. The kitchen was fully stocked of anything we needed to cook with.

We had a wonderful time in the house, plus all the beds slept good.

Perfect girls' getaway

  • 5 of 5

Lovely cottage close to main for our group of 5. Everyone you need is there and is very well maintained, clean, and comfortable. Beautiful music playing as we opened the lock on the front door, and things were just wonderful for our whole weekend trip. Thanks so much for sharing this with us!

Absolutely PERFECT!

  • 5 of 5

Our group of couples visit Fredericksburg at least once a year and it will now revolve around the availability of this house! This is by far the cleanest, neatest house we have ever stayed in and we have stayed in several places. This house is divided up nicely to accommodate large groups and it is very nicely laid out. Huge dining room table with lovely windows, super comfy living room and a great kitchen stocked with everything you could need! We had 8 people and every one said how much they enjoyed this house. We can't wait to plan our next visit! Also, Laura was just awesome to deal with, no stress, no problems and such an easy process. Thanks again! The Honeycutts

Perfect house with the best location to Main Street!

  • 5 of 5

This house was the perfect place for my little family. It was more than enough space and provided everything we needed! It was just a short walk to all the shopping and eateries. We would definitely love to stay here again!
