About Autumn with Diamond Y Properties
We are a locally owned, family business who enjoys investing in unique commercial and residential real estate. Often times, we partner with Design Visions, a local architectural firm to design and help us carry out the visions we foresee with certain projects. We also have a working ranch where we grow crops and where sheep, cattle, and donkeys call home. We love the hill country and believe in preserving what makes this area special. We enjoy the small town feeling of Fredericksburg and all that it has to offer!
Autumn with Diamond Y Properties purchased this Cabin in 2010
Why Autumn with Diamond Y Properties chose Fredericksburg
Diamond Y Ranch is very unique and beautiful. The original house on the ranch dates back to the 1800's. We worked hard to preserve the integrity of the original house and dogtrot cabins while trying to maintain a comfortable and updated living environment. The ranch is almost 600 acres, so individual guests can maintain privacy and peace, yet if they choose to travel with more people, then we can accommodate larger parties and have a common area equipped with a saloon, playground, and pavilion to all meet and gather.
What makes this Cabin unique
This cabin was originally built in the 1860's in Cherokee County, TX and in 2000 it was relocated and reconstructed on Diamond Y Ranch. Dogtrots date back to the post Revolution frontier and were built to have two separate cabins that were connected by a breezeway. Typically, one cabin was used for cooking and dining, while the other cabin was used as a living/bedroom. The breezeway offered cool air passing through, so this was the favorite place for the dogs to sleep, hence the name dogtrot. There are 4 acres for guests to walk and enjoy as well as plenty of places to relax and unwind. This property is unique because you can either enjoy time as a couple or set of friends, or you can rent more than one cabin and house to have larger groups of friends/family.

A true gem!
This is the most beautifully restored, comfortable and stylish home we’ve ever stayed at in the Hill Country. It was the perfect Thanksgiving getaway with two
separate cabins for us and our friends. Would definitely return!
Beautiful property and accomodations!
The restored cabin is awesome! Attention to details for the guests was great. We are building a modern log cabin ourselves and we will be using some of the landscaping ideas from around the dogtrot building for our own. Sitting on the breezeway during some thunder and rain was a great way to end our day after helping bottle at the Garrison Brothers. We will definitely inquire to VRBO these accommodations again.
We loved staying here!
The cabin is cute and comfortable and the environment is quiet and relaxing. Beautiful view from the cabin porch! We plan to come back sometime soon!
Very quiet, comfortable and clean!
The property is located on a ranch and is very beautiful. There is wildlife and the cabins, house and saloon have been rebuilt and updated to high standards. We enjoyed morning coffee and evening on the porch surrounded by nature. Very relaxing and comfortable. We will stay there again!
Wow! Absolutely the prettiest and most well kept ranch we have ever stayed at in the Hill Country
Autumn and Dennis are two of the most curteous, thoughtful and just down home folks you will ever meet! The ranch was outstanding! My family couldn’t quite talking about all the way home! We hated to leave! It is so peaceful and beautiful! My father told me several times this is the Best place you ever taken us to for some RR! THANK YOU Dennis and Autumn for allowing us to share your daily views of your Beautiful Homestead/Ranch
God Bless you and your family!
I absolutely loved my stay in the Beau Suite. The entire property was well-maintained and peaceful. I enjoyed drinking coffee, and watching the deer and hummingbirds on the porch. The suite was super country cute, with attention to little details. The bed was comfortable. I am going to Bri g my husband back. The only downside (which wasn't mine) is you do need to drive about 20 minutes to eat out, either into Fredericksburg or Johnson City.
Bring your hiking shoes for Enchanted Rock. Lady Bird Johnson Park has an easier trail, several playgrounds, a seasonal public pool (small entry fee) and a public golf course.
