About Sue & Rick Lang

Rick & Sue met and married after college while on active duty in the Air Force. Both retired in the late 90's (Sue was an HR manager and Rick a pilot) and moved with their kids from metropolitan Washington D.C. to Texas to begin the next phase of their lives. They knew that Wisconsin (where Sue was raised) was too cold for Rick & West Texas (where he grew up) too brown and flat for Sue. Central Texas with its low unemployment, favorable taxes, affordable cost of living, good schools and reasonable weather seemed like the right choice. We'd looked at Austin & San Antonio, but both cities were growing into huge metropolises so quickly and we really wanted our kids to grow up in a small town environment. We planned an overnight stay in the Fredericksburg area as a part of an RV vacation to check out where to settle. Due to engine problems in the RV, we ended up in town for 4 days and fell in love. The rest is history. (Just ask Rick to tell you about it...he loves to share the story.)

Sue & Rick Lang purchased this cabin in 1998

Why Sue & Rick Lang chose Fredericksburg

Both Rick & Sue love wine and were toying with the idea of growing grapes and making wine themselves. Even back in the late 1990's, Fredericksburg was a designated viticultural area and showed great potential. So, first they bought a wine tasting room on Main St to learn all about what the consumer was looking for in wine and get to know local winemakers. Then they purchased their property with the plan to plant a vineyard and follow their dream. One thing led to another and before you knew it, they not only had the wine tasting room, but had also started Fredericksburg's very first winery touring business while each having their own full time jobs. After 7 yrs and quickly growing kids, they decided it was time to sell both businesses and focus on family. They never did plant vines on their property, but have help plant vines, haverst and produce wine with their good friends from Texas Hills Vineyard. Now that their kids have grown and moved on they wanted a place where the kids could stay and bring their friends and families along to visit. So tehy designed and built the Casetta in the summer of 2014 and furnished it like some of the lovely B&Bs they stayed in on a recent trip to Italy. They hope you will find it as friendly as visiting family and as comfortable and elegant as a 5-star hotel. They look forward to sharing the beauty and peacefulness of their property with you.

What makes this cabin unique

This property is located just outside Fredericksburg in the Texas Hill Country. Fredericksburg is a small town with a unique German flavor in its Hauptstrasse (Main Street) architecture and unique Sunday Houses. Weekenders from nearby San Antonio and Austin have long appreciated the charm of our small town with its selection of high class restaurants. delicious BBQ and live music scene. The surrounding Texas Hill Country is home to lush peach orchards and vineyards. It is one of the country's largest viticulture areas and Wine Spectator magazine recently named it one of the Top 10 Wine Travel Destinations in the World for 2014. Wildlife abounds with a wide variety of birds, Axis and Mule deer, and Mouflon sheep along with usual horses and cows can be seen on grazing ours and adjoining ranches. The best part about this property is that you can just sit on the front porch overlooking the hill country, enjoying the peace and quiet, spectacular sunsets, while sipping a glass of world class local wine and feel your worries slipping away.

Nice place

  • 5 of 5

My family and I enjoyed our stay. The cabin is great and in great condition. The fence in the front of the home was great to have for our dogs. We loved the amount of deer, armadillo and cattle on the property. It added to our experience. We will definitely be back.

Home Away From Home

  • 5 of 5

This is our third or fourth visit to Casetta Toscano. We love that we're familiar with the area and the casetta. Having a fellow quilter next door is a BIG plus! Everything is always in its place and clean. We stayed a bit longer each time; 12 days this time! Sue & Rick are good hosts; even changed bedding and other linens halfway through our stay. We'll be back next year!

Owner's Response: Mary, It was great to have you and Garry stay with us again! So glad you got to spend time "talking quilt" with Lisa. (She enjoys it as well!) I know Garry enjoys his rides through the Hill Country and I even saw him ride past me on Main St. Hope you enjoy the remainder of your trip and we look forward to hosting you again! Best regards! Sue

Peaceful cabin

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed the location of this cabin. It is about 10 minutes south of Fredericksburg with lots of deer around to see coming and going. The beds were comfortable, the bathroom had soft towels and the kitchen is well stocked with cooking pots and utensils. We were there over three cold and rainy days but the heater kept us warm. The welcome bottle of wine helped too! Would highly recommend.

Quaint and Quiet

  • 5 of 5

My aunt and I rented this cabin for a wine excursion and birthday celebration weekend. The owners left us a nice welcome note and bottle of wine. The special touches were so welcoming. The cabin is tucked away from the main hustle of things, but close enough to get anywhere you want to go in Fredericksburg. We were so happy to be able to cook our meals and even enjoy a fire after a day of wine tasting. I will definitely be renting this little gem next time I am in town!
