About Kim Smith

Ron and I sold our family-owned business in Inez, Texas after 35 years. We have always loved the Texas Hill Country and Fredericksburg is a lovely town for a new life adventure. My family has history in Fredericksburg and my grandfather (Henry Born), whom I adored, was a jolly old German who came to the USA when he was seven years old from Potok, Poland thus the name of the house, "Born Haus."

Kim Smith purchased this house in 2015

Why Kim Smith chose Fredericksburg

It was love "at first sight" when we found this adorable two story Vacation Rental.

What makes this house unique

This Rental has a great porch to gather on for morning coffee or afternoon wine. The fire pit gives visitors an area to relax in and enjoy the beautiful Fredericksburg climate.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thanks Kim, we LOVED your house, very clean upon arrival. We had a great time, our friends from NY enjoyed the area.

Pleasant and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed mornings and evenings on the front porch. The house is located near the downtown area but far enough to enjoy peace and quiet at our own pace. Comfortable beds afforded us great sleep at night. We would definitely want to return and recommend this place without hesitation.

The Born Haus offers a clean comfortable retreat while in Fredericksburg.

  • 5 of 5

Comfy place with enough room for everyone!

The extra powder room downstairs was great for getting ready.

Showers were hot with good water pressure and beds were warm and comfy.

We enjoyed having coffee on the front porch in the morning and seeing deer at night while winding down at the end of the day.

We cooked on the grill our last night and ate on the back porch.

We felt safe in this quiet area just off Main and only had to drive a few blocks to get to the concentrated area of shops.

Kim and Ron Smith provided a nice place for our vacation and we appreciated the quiet setting. Thanks to the Smiths for offering your home for our stay.

We had a lovely time.

Beautiful and Charming!

  • 5 of 5

This was a perfect spot for a reunion with my college girl friends. We loved drinking wine in the rocking chairs on the porch and the beds were so perfectly comfortable. Everyone had a great time and left rested! We truly could not be more thankful to have stumbled upon this property. It made our weekend special and memorable.
