Das Tejas is a 2002 timber and stone home built with the historic styling of an late 1800's German pioneer home. We have been the proud owners of this lovely home since 2014. Our home features fine period antiques and primitives, along with fine textiles and a growing collection of the owners quilts. Architectural features of this home include a wood burning stone fireplace, cypress beam and pine wood ceilings, stained concrete floors down with wide-plank pine floors up, and granite counters. The large master bedroom is located downstairs off the comfortable living room, and includes an on suite bathroom with recently remodeled walk-in shower and two separate sinks. Guests will appreciate the convenience of an additional half bath, also recently remodeled with double sink and make-up station, along with a super fast download internet connection. The fully equipped kitchen allows for the preparation of a nice family meal when not taking advantage of one of the fine Fredericksburg restaurants within walking distance. The dining area opens up to the kitchen and boasts a table that will accommodate guest seating to six. This area is a perfect location for after dinner games and puzzles found in the home. There is a second private bedroom on the second level, along with a *(semi-private) sleeping loft/television lounge, and an additional bathroom. Covered patios and around the home and a large stone patio in the back allow for relaxation, with private hot tub. Enjoy star gazing around the recently added fire-pit.This home is best used for up to two couples wanting their own private spaces, or a family/friends group of up to six.

About Missy Shelton

Hello, our names are Brice and Missy and we have recently moved to Fredericksburg, Texas. Now empty-nesters, we are enjoying the Hill Country and al it has to offer. Brice enjoys cycling and occasionally, I will join him (new tandem). I enjoy quilting and this area has a few amazing shops. I'm also a real estate agent, so just ask if you have any interest in seeing something during your stay.

Missy Shelton purchased this House in 2014

Why Missy Shelton chose Fredericksburg

We had been looking to purchase a home in Gillespie County for several years and were so excited to purchase this home this August of 2014. We have now met our goal of moving to the area after Brice retired in late 2015. This is truly our dream come true and we are looking forward to sharing it with you.

What makes this House unique

The greatest benefit of this home is the fantastic location. In addition to that, this home has all the benefits of a modern home, while maintaining the feel of an early pioneer home. Communal spaces, both inside and on the back patio, make this an exceptional home for small gatherings of family and friends, up to six total guests.

                                                                      Missy provided all the makings for a delicious breakfast!! The kitchen had everything we needed!

Keep in mind that the shops hours are usually from 10-5ish, so be sure to plan accordingly.

                                                                      We would definitely come back!

The beds were incredibly comfortable. We were so excited about the lovely baked goods left for us as breakfast treats. The hot tub was just an added bonus. The location was perfect for downtown shopping and wine tasting. I highly recommend this property!

Missy and her husband really go the extra mile to make your stay wonderful. The patio is a high-lite with the fire pit and the spa, we even got in a game of corn-hole. From fresh fruit and breakfast items to comfortable beds and robes, every thing is exceptional. We highly recommend Das Tejas!

A large fire pit expertly loaded and ready to light. A nice HOT hottub for late evening relaxation, the fireplace inside ready to light, and a fully stocked kitchen made cooking a delight. Lovely lotions and soaps, beautiful and cozy bedding, and plush towels. The host has really thought of every little detail and we can't wait to come back!

                                                                      Glad you guys had fun. We love our guests, they take such good care of our home.

                                                                      Giggled here, I also love it when "Blake" aka Brice is acknowledged, he helps so much getting the home ready for guests. Really couldn't do this without him.

                                                                      Hope you come back when traveling to the Hill Country!
