Beautiful property in the Texas Hill Country. Country view within minutes of Fredericksburg.

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is one of three encircling a water fountain. The Running Horse is a quaint cottage with bedroom, living space and great bathroom area. Patios in front and rear. Perfect for a couple of nights away from the hustle and bustle. Property is beautiful, well managed and secure.

Only thing missing is any indoor cooking, but there is an outdoor grill.

I would recommend this to family/friends and plan on a return trip.

Perfectly appointed space, great location, super hosts!

  • 5 of 5

We were staying at Running Horse for my husband's birthday weekend. We were welcomed with a birthday card! We brought our small dog along and there was even a chewy toy to welcome him to the cottage. The location is a short drive from town but the view is amazing. We saw deer out of the backdoor. The bathroom is really nice and the jetted tub was perfect at the end of a long day. I will definitely be back!

Perfect spot!

  • 5 of 5

From the beginning, sending messages to Susan regarding the property, I was greeted warmly.

Once I arrived, the house was so lovely. Everything was perfect. I paid Attention to the welcome towel with a chew stick for my puppy, everything was clean, organized and little details meant so much.

Jacuzzi tub, great shower, and I loved the comfy robe!

The bed was amazing, best nights rest!

I loved the gas grill!

This is a hidden gem and very close to Fredericksburg. If you’re wanting peace and quiet for a couples getaway, this is the perfect spot.

Quiet, Peaceful

We had a great time at Cherry Mountain Cottages! The cottage was a great little retreat from Fredricksburg - the stars are bright and we saw deer and sheep. Everything was clean and comfortable - we would definitely come back!

The cabin was impeccably clean with New Mexico charm. My husband loved the shower and I relaxed a long time reading in the Jacuzzi tub. The robes were soo nice and the fireplace was perfect in the chilly weather.
