The two- story cabin offers ample space, excellent beds and furnishings, original oil paintings by hill country artists, views that inspire, a fully stocked kitchen for a big country breakfast, a two-person whirlpool tub. It is a great place for two couples to get away for a weekend or a family is reconnect for a week in the country air. The road it is located on is not a through road so there is almost no traffic. A great place to walk and bike. A wonderful place to sit on the balcony and look over the Palo Alto Creek Valley with a glass of wine and watch the moon rise!. If you are a cyclist, it is the perfect location to connect to the best biking roads in the hill country. We invite you to come and retreat to little piece of Texas hill country heaven.
A beautiful place to retreat....: This is a beautiful place to let your hair down and enjoy the views of the Texas Hill Country. This cabin is located on a farm with cows, chickens, clean air, peace and quiet. It is only three miles from downtown Fredericksburg, so the shopping, restaurants, and fun are only minutes away. The beautiful amenities and full kitchen make you feel right at home. A safe place for children, a great place to bike and walk and gaze at the moon and stars. This is a great place for bicyclists because we are at the entrance point to most of the great biking roads in the Hill Country.

Laura Jenschke purchased this cabin in 2005
We bought this property because of the beautiful houses, amazing trees, views and its short distance to downtown Fredericksburg. You are out in the country but minutes from town.
The guest house has beautiful touches of wood trim and tile floors, high ceilings, beautiful views, peace and quiet.
My husband and I spent a wonderful month at Moonrise Retreat. The cabin is lovely...very clean, nicely furnished and tastefully decorated. When we first walked in it felt like home. The refrigerator was stocked with fresh eggs and other breakfast foods. After a comfortable night's sleep ( awesome beds) it was a pleasure to stay home in the mornings, brew fresh coffee and make our own delicious feasts.
The cabin is located three miles from Fredricksburg on a quiet road with very little traffic - a perfect place to walk our 12 year old chocolate lab. She enjoyed watching the chickens and horses and snoozing in the sun. The patio faces east and the sunrises are gorgeous. We enjoyed sitting there is the evenings sipping wines from the area, grilling excellent steaks and being captivated by the lovely view.
Fredericksburg is a charming town with shops, art galleries and excellent restaurants. The Museum of the Pacific War is a must see. There are many vineyards in the surrounding area with tasting rooms for those that wish to try the different wines. LBJ ranch is nearby. The Hill Country offers many other places of interest. San Antonio and Austin are perfect day trip destinations.
It was such a pleasure getting to know Laurie and Daniel. They are wonderful people and excellent hosts - always anticipating and meeting our needs. We plan to be back next year!
For those traveling in the area I would highly recommend staying at Moonrise Retreat!
My friends/coworkers and I had a fabulous time at this property. It was very accommodating and perfect for our weekend getaway! The owners were very helpful with local recommendations for food and wineries. We had a blast sitting by the fire pit and loved the closeness of the property to the city. We will definitely be visiting again! Thanks!
This place is awesome if you are looking for a quiet comfortable home away from home. My family just returned from here and can't say enough good things. The house was very clean and was equipped with all the essentials (clean towels, cookware, breakfast food, etc.) It was so nice to be close to all the Fredericksburg attractions but still tucked away from the traffic and noise. My husband especially enjoyed the deer watching, we saw three big bucks in velvet so that was pretty cool.
Had my daughter and two granddaughters with me. This was a very kid friendly place. Great bathrooms and bedrooms. TV in both bedrooms and living area. Washer and dryer located in one of the bathrooms. Beautiful location. Easy to get to.
Best vacation rental ever! So much better than a hotel and a great price! Tons of breakfast food/drinks. Comfortable beds, beautiful views, fire pit and only 3 miles from downtown Fredericksburg! Fantastic!!!
Such a beautiful cabin! Sitting on the back porch overlooking the hills - so relaxing! The eggs from the chickens (that we hung out with for a short time) were delicious. Eating breakfast in the nook couldn't have been better. I almost considered taking the bed home with me - it was fluffy and wonderful! Really couldn't have asked for anything better. We were totally smitten with this property. And I got engaged while in Fredericksburg! Perfect weekend. The ONLY issue I had was the shower head. My hair is pretty long and it took a while to wash it. Other than that - GREAT! Thanks Laurie!
