Can't wait to go back!

  • 5 of 5

This is the perfect weekend getaway spot for a couple. The cottage is beautiful inside and has high-end furniture and a modern bathroom. The bed and sheets were so comfortable! For us, the peace and quiet was worth the 5-10 minute drive from town. Our favorite part was enjoying a glass of wine on the patio. We also appreciated the owner reaching out before and after our stay to see if we needed anything. We'll definitely be back!

Beautiful Running Horse Cottage in Fredericksburg!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time staying at the Cherry Mountain Cottages. The property is just beautiful and within minutes of Fredericksburg's Main street shopping, Enchanted Rock, and one of our all time favorite restaurants, Hilltop Café. The cottage was extremely comfortable and beautifully decorated. Susan added special touches like a cheese and grape tray, and treats for our puppies. We loved relaxing in the Spa bathtub every night and there were even candles available for us to use. Everything was perfect and you can tell the owners know how to cater to their guests. They put time and effort into providing the extra touches that make you feel pampered and appreciated. I am already planning a group trip to rent all 3 cottages for our family and friends! When I texted Susan as we were leaving, she recommended a wonderful BBQ place for us to stop at on our way back to Dallas. It was delicious! Thanks Susan!

A fabulous place to relax!

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I were looking for a secluded place to spend New Year's weekend and we found it! The cabin is close enough to Fredericksburg for a quick drive into town, but it's set away a piece to avoid the tourist-y crowds. Susan is a wonderful hostess--We were greeted with fruit, cheese, and crackers (a treat since our supper reservations were quite late), and she left a chewy for our dog, as well. The cabin was comfortable and cozy, and it was even cool enough to use the fireplace one evening. There is a nice patio area in the back with a grill and a lovely view of the Hill Country, which provided a perfect setting for our New Year's Eve supper. The bathroom is like a spa, with a jet tub and a walk-in shower, with spa robes, plush towels, and small toiletries in case any necessities had been forgotten at home. If you're not familiar with the area, information (maps, brochures, etc.) on shopping, restaurants, local wineries, and sights, has been provided. We had just the mini-vacation we were hoping for, and we would definitely stay here on a return visit to Fredericksburg!
