About Denise Bessler

As former educators, we love people! We operate a bed & breakfast, antique shop & an events venue + catering facility, but often don't have the space to accommodate larger families or groups so we decided to replace our previous home/vacation rental with a similar house to allow us to have our own family gathering place and a place for others to enjoy as well!

Denise Bessler purchased this chateau / country house in 2015

Why Denise Bessler chose Fredericksburg

Beautiful architectural structure & setting, perfect layout and accommodations for groups- up to 18 people drew us to this house. We love the outdoors and privacy and this has plenty of both! The Louisville/Southern Indiana area has many attraction and events to make an adventuresome vacation for anyone.

What makes this chateau / country house unique

Water feature, private balconies & patios, wonderful views, pool, hot tub, 10 acres of hiking, pure luxury in a peaceful, private setting. Spacious house with beds for 12 & sleeper sofas for 6. Lots of space to get the entire group together as well as private areas for conversation & family time. Kid & family friendly!

Summer Family Fun

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful, spacious and well cared for property. We had a lovely time enjoying the pool, hot tub and cooking family meals. Our group included Grandparents, children and grandchildren. Each adult couple had a private bedroom and the grandchildren enjoyed having a cousin slumber party in the large family room.The children loved the pool, the yard, riding their bikes on the long driveway and fixing marshmallows over the fire pit. I think this would be a wonderful place for any age group.

Fantastic Thanksgiving Family Get Together

  • 5 of 5

This was an amazing place for a large family to get together and just be "family". The home is secluded yet not far from areas of interest, shopping, and of course Louisville. The kitchen's were amazing. The hot tub was relaxing. Nicely decorated and lots of space for everyone, especially when one needs "alone"time. Landscaping is lovely, and had it been summer we would have enjoyed the lawns, woods, and pool a great deal.

Do wish the fireplace had been working, since it was Thanksgiving and I have ALWAYS wanted a fireplace located where this was, between rooms! Fantastic placement. There is always a next time. :)

The owners were accomodating, pleasant, helpful, and attentive to our needs. Both Tom and Denise were SUPER! Can not say enough good things about them. This was the first time we did something like this, and it went off wonderfully for us, all our children, and grandchildren were as happy as could be.

Wonderful place!

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 9 ladies had a great time at this beautiful home. Everything we needed was there, and it was spotless. The weather was perfect for pool time. We couldn't figure out the TV so Denise and Tom were there within 30 minutes to help us out. They are a lovely couple and their puppy was adorable. This is the 33rd year our group has been doing an annual outing, and this was by far one of our favorite places! Thank you!

This vacation home meet all our needs. We had a full house yet we all had plenty of space to spread out. Our Innkeeper was very helpful whenever we had any questions or concerns. We would absolutely rent this home again if we were vacationing in the area.
