We even throw in some wonderful fresh local coffee and some spices for cooking.

Why Kevin and Stephanie Whitworth chose Fredericksburg

We fell in love with this property and it's character as soon as we laid eyes on it. It is adorable and the location couldn't be any better. We love Fredericksburg and wanted to have a place for friends and family to gather while visiting. We decided soon after purchasing that we wanted to share it with others. We hope you enjoy the Painted Buffalo as much as we do!

Enjoy the bearutiful home near Main Street and lots of fun in Fredericksburg.

VRBO Bear stayed here

Nov 27, 2016

This Bear and her husband had the pleasure of staying at the Painted Buffalo home in lovely Fredericksburg, TX for Thanksgiving weekend. Fredericksburg is just 90 minutes from Austin and is known for its many unique shops and restaurants. It is a quaint area with a small town atmosphere, near dozens of incredible Texas wineries. It’s the perfect place for a weekend away. The Painted Buffalo definitely caters to girl’s getaways, but my husband also enjoyed all of the small touches that the owners, Stephanie and Kevin, put into this newly remodeled home. Everything has been thought of! We were greeted by a large chalkboard sign welcoming us which included personalized notes and instructions. We made good use of the basket of soft, warm blankets as we cuddled up on the couch, enjoyed the fully-stocked kitchen for cooking quick meals, and enjoyed the comfy beds with quality linens. The home is located on a quiet, tree-lined street, close enough to Main Street for a nice walk or just a couple minutes’ drive. We explored Enchanted Rock for hiking, as it was just 15 minutes away. We ate delicious meals at Fredericksburg Herb Farm, the Old German Bakery, and Hill Top Café. We also did our Christmas shopping, then enjoyed some great music at Hondo’s and Luckenbach. It was a great weekend! We returned home well rested, and thankful for the experience of Fredericksburg. If you are looking for a wonderful retreat in a beautiful town, I wholeheartedly recommend the Painted Buffalo!

HOSTess with the MOSTess! Perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

Stephanie, thank you so much for sharing your lovely place with us! It was exactly as described and more! The location to Main and everything the area has to offer was perfect and we intend on making the Painted Buffalo our home away from home when we come to Fredericksburg! The communication we received from the moment we contacted you to after our departure was exceptional and we are so grateful for the recommendations you gave us! I told my husband that we must have dinner at the Cabernet Grill when we come again. It was amazing! As a vacation rental owner myself, I appreciated the cleanliness and all of the little extras you provided. It was evident you go out of your way to make guests feel welcome and at home during their stay and you thought of everything! I'm stealing some of your amenity ideas for our place! Thank you again for your great hospitality! Can't wait to come back!

Clean, roomy, organized, and good location.

The owner, Stephanie, went above and beyond to answer questions or help in any way she could. We were in Fredericksburg for the first time on a girls trip and Stephanie recommended restaurants, shopping, etc. We loved Hondo's and loved Clear River Ice Cream and Bakery!!

Owner's Response: Hi, Jan! We are so glad you enjoyed your stay at the Painted Buffalo! Hondo's is one of our favorite restaurants in the area as well. We would be so excited to have you back next year! Thanks so much for your kind review, Stephanie

Quaint & Quirky, NOT worth the RULES

  • 3 of 5

The place itself is cute, colorful, and perfect for a girls’ getaway. However, “the rules” that the owner expects for you to follow takes away from the experience. Unfortunately, I would not stay here again. I paid and extra fee for cleaning and was expected to wipe down counters, take out the trash, start the dishwasher, use cosmetics wipes for makeup removal (not to dirty the white towels) & strip the beds. What does the cleaning fee cover? There is also an additional insurance fee which I’m sure is also non-refundable even though we left everything in perfect condition. I would find someplace a bit closer to Main so that you could walk, and stay at a place with owners who are more interested in making your stay enjoyable and not worried about soiling the towels.

Owner's Response: Heather, thank you so much for taking the time to give your feedback. I know you said this was your first time staying at a vacation rental and first trip using VRBO. I am sorry that your experience fell short of your expectation. Our rules are in line with the vacation rental community. We supply the make-up removal wipes (Neutrogena) and also supply soft make-up removal washcloths. My husband and I take absolute pride in every aspect of our vacation rental including unparalleled cleanliness and hospitality. We go above and beyond in giving our guests the best experience possible and want them to leave our place having made special memories and have never received anything but the highest of compliments. We've even hosted the VRBO bear and were given a great review. We hope potential future guests will read all of our reviews across ALL platforms when choosing a place to stay in Fredericksburg.
