Car: Necessary

This home is located 4.5 miles from town, only about 10 min. Close enough to run in to shop or dine but far enough to be quiet and peaceful. Fredericksburg is located in the heart of the hill country, with lots of eclectic shops and restaurants on the city's main street offering a taste of the local culture.

If you want to stay close to the guest home during your stay you can hike, bike, bird watch, or just enjoy the quiet beauty of nature.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 1988

About the owner: I am the daughter of Art and Elane Petersen who purchased the land and built this home back in 1980's for a retirement retreat. Art was raised on a ranch 11 miles up the road but had a career as a Marine JAG officer, then as a city attorney and finally opened his own office as a financial planner before REALLY retiring to his hometown. They raised Longhorns and enjoyed a few good years before leaving the property for others to enjoy. I LOVE this place!!! After enjoying over a decade of Thanksgiving and other celebrations here w/ my entire family; I have a desire to share the beauty & wonder of these twin hills and surrounding area.

Why the Owner Chose Fredericksburg, TX, USA:
Our home was designed by my late parents for family gatherings and for retirement. It is comfortable and quiet, cant see another house in any direction.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
We are over the hill from Fredericksburg which gives us the most wonderful views of the stars without the city lights. Almost always a breeze so sitting out on any of the porches is comfortable.
