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.

Damage and incidentals

This property goes far beyond what anyone could possibly expect, clean, comfortable and the owners are a dream to work with. We were planning our next visit before we even left. House in the perfect position for visiting all the local attractions.
This cabin is every bit as quaint, historic, and beautiful as it looks in the listing photos! We didn't end up doing as many activities as we'd planned while in Fredericksburg, simply so that we could spend more time at the cabin -- eating at the breezeway table, relaxing in the porch chairs, admiring the view. The cabin's ranch setting is gorgeous!
Texas at its Best!
The four of us couldn’t believe our luck at finding this Dog Trot cabin and the Diamond Y ranch. As architects we were impressed with every authentic and careful detail of the renovation of this structure. Both the grounds and cabins are immaculate and beautiful and the experience went way beyond our expectations! Very comfortable and accommodated everything we needed during our stay. We highly recommend.
