Expectations Exceeded. What an amazing home!

  • 5 of 5

My wife, her two brothers, and their spouses planned a weekend in Fredericksburg. We were all so impressed with this home. Everything was perfect. The back patio was an extra special treat allowing us to spend evenings together around a beautiful fire pit. The layout of the home was so nice. The furnishings so nice and so comfortable. We really appreciated the cleanliness of the home as well. I highly recommend this rental. We will certainly book our next trip to Fredericksburg around the availability of this place!

Beautiful Place to Unwind in Historic Fredericksburg

  • 5 of 5

The 5 of us arrived last Friday and were instantly charmed by the house, with its high ceilings, lots of windows, a long, lovely front porch, and a nice-sized private back patio. The neighborhood was very peaceful. One night, we stayed in and grilled, and that was our favorite meal by far. The house had everything we needed to prepare and serve the meal. There are plenty of dishes, serving bowls, cutlery, etc.

The master suite is very large, and located at the back of the house, so there is a lot of privacy. There is a smaller patio area off the master, which is the perfect place to read a book and just enjoy the outdoors.

Our main challenge was the temperature difference in various parts of the house. We searched high and low for a 2nd thermostat in an effort to cool the master bedroom (outside temps were in the mid-90's). I finally found it (while packing to leave!). Hint -look on the wall BEHIND the master bathroom door.

While the house is technically withing walking distance of Main Street, it's not the shortest walk. We chose to drive there, due to the heat.

We all agree it's now our favorite place to stay in Fredericksburg, and we hope to stay there again.

Best home rental in Fredericksburg!

  • 5 of 5

We have been traveling and staying in all kinds of places in Fredericksburg for the last 10 - 15 years...this place outdoes them all! Beautiful back yard and patio; furnishings are abundant and all very nice. Although we did not do any cooking, all of the kitchen amenities were definitely noted and appreciated! It would have been easy to cook a large meal...not a utensil or pan would have been missing! This place is a little priceier than others but you definitely get what you pay for! No question it would be my pick overtime and I am very picky!

Beautiful home, pictures do not do it justice!

  • 5 of 5

Encino House was a wonderful home, beautifully decorated and so comfortable! The backyard is amazing and was a great place to visit in the evenings, and it was so nice to be able to bring our dogs as well. This is one of the best rentals we have ever stayed in, highly recommend and we hope to visit again soon!

Perfect! Would definitely stay here again!

  • 5 of 5

This house had the perfect layout and location for our recent trip. It was super clean and comfortable with a beautiful backyard patio. Enjoyed taking quiet walks through the neighborhood streets in the evenings -- the kids loved seeing deer and fireflies. The owner was easy work with and quick with all communication.
