About Nancy and Jason Herndon

We have lived all over Texas, the United States, and quite a few locations around the world but there was never any doubt that we would call Fredericksburg, Texas HOME. From our first travels together many years ago, we always stayed in VRBO/HomeAway properties and B&Bs. We knew what we loved in those properties and couldn't wait to own our own vacation home and provide the same for our guests.

Nancy and Jason Herndon purchased this house in 2013

Why Nancy and Jason Herndon chose Fredericksburg

Acorn Cottage gives you the feel of a historic farmhouse from the outside, but once you walk in you are surrounded with modern amenities. The open floor plan is one of the great things about this house. It's the perfect location for friends and/or family to come together.

Lovely house that fit our friend-amily trip

  • 4 of 5

The house was great! King beds in all 3 rooms. Fully stocked kitchen (gadgets and dishes). We had a group of 3 couples that stayed for the weekend. We had an issue with the coffee pot, but told Jason about it. He assured he he would fix it before the next guests.

My only complaint is that the walls are thin, so when some wanted to sleep and others wanted to stay up and chat- it was impossible. Also, hot water seemed to be scarce in the upstairs shower, but the downstairs had plenty all weekend.

I thought it would be walking distance from the main strip, but it wasn’t. Not a far drive at ALL, though! We would stay here again.

Great house with lots of hangout space!

  • 5 of 5

There were two couples and one kiddo under 2 in our party. The house was perfect! Super comfortable king size beds in every room. The kitchen, dining room, and living room are all one big open space, so there's lots of room to hang out. The furniture is really comfortable and makes you want to sit and stay a while. Plenty of towels to go around in the bathrooms. Our favorite part was the fireplace. We built a fire every night of our stay (we purchased our own firewood and used their firestarter). It's close enough to walk downtown, but we ended up driving most days. Nancy and Jason gave us a great list of recommendations for food and fun in the area. By far our favorite spot was the Old German Bakery and Restaurant for breakfast. Hondos was another favorite place. There's an HEB grocery store close by for planning meals at the house. We would definitely stay here again!
