About the Property

2-3* bedrooms, 2.5 Bathroom, Sleeps 6.

Location, location, location! Just one block off Main, on San Antonio. Short walk to cute shops and super close to eateries with great atmosphere!

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, 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.

Please be considerate of our wishes that our home remain restricted to children under 12 and all pets. Travelers with pets are encouraged to contact us in advance of their stay to receive suggestions on pet resorts in the area. This is a non-smoking home. No Batchelorette parties or groups over six.

Das Tejas (DT) - Zwei, a second guest house, sits at the back of the super deep lot (200 feet). This unit is used by the owners. If you are in need of additional space for your group, contact us and let us know. We may consider rental of DTZ too. Guest homes are separated by a, newly installed and expanding landscaped yard space.

Manager info

Year Purchased: 2014

About: 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.

Why Fredericksburg, TX, USA:
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.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
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.
