Overview

Fredericksburg House Rental Photos and Description

6 bedrooms, 4 full bathrooms, 1 half bathroom, sleeps 14

History meets luxury...and location...at the Keidel Inn and Gasthaus. This premium property is located on Main Street only steps from the main shopping district. Take a stroll to the Nimitz Museum just across the way or enjoy an evening walk to the best restaurants Fredericksburg has to offer. Enjoy morning coffee on the fabulous garden patio by the fish pond. The main building on the front of the property facing Main Street is the Keidel Inn. Just behind the Inn is the Keidel Gasthaus.

Of course the charm of this property dates back to 1846 when three lots were deeded to Dr. Wilhelm Keidel, the first medical doctor in Fredericksburg. Keidel Inn and Gasthaus is located on a large lot in Fredericksburg that has been in the Keidel family for well over 160+ years. The Gasthaus was built originally facing Main Street and on the very north part of the property. It was the first home of Dr. Victor and Clara Stieler Keidel after their marriage on June 13, 1909. Behind the house stood a screened in large kitchen separated from the wood frame home for safety reasons.

In 1928, the Gasthaus was moved to its present location in order to build the Spanish style home that now houses the Keidel Inn. Two historic oak trees stand near the southwest corner of the main house and mark the spot where the first surveyors of the new city of Fredericksburg buried their tools so when the settlers arrived the following year they would have them to start the construction of their new homes. They built a campfire over the spot so Indians and other travelers would not be able to tell that the soil had been disturbed. The Keidels were a prominent family of physicians in early Fredericksburg and served the community for over 150 years. The property is owned by a granddaughter of Victor and Clara and is being operated as a B&B by a great grandson.

The upstairs portion of the main house offers three bedrooms (two rooms have a king bed, the third has two twins beds). The charming bathroom upstairs offers a tub/shower combination. Downstairs offers two bedrooms (one king & one queen), two baths for extra privacy, a large living room, dining room and foyer with impressive stairway. You will also enjoy a comfortable sitting area and full kitchen.

The Gasthaus has one king bedroom upstairs with a half-bath. Downstairs has a queen air mattress, sitting area, full kitchen & full bathroom.

If you’re looking for space, luxury and location, Keidel Inn & Gasthaus is the place for you!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We rented this house for a friends getaway to the hill country and this house was marvelous. All the rooms were huge with very comfortable beds. It is located right on main street, so we walked to all the great shopping and dining in downtown Fredericksburg. House has a lot of history and we got to chat with the owner/caretaker, which provided a great background/history of the house.

We enjoyed sitting on the back patio area and enjoying beautiful February weather. All in all a great experience, I would recommend to all!!!

Absolutely awesome

  • 5 of 5

Can't say enough good about Keidel Inn...the pictures and description don't do this property justice. Ample room, excellent location, and really great atmosphere put this historical house over the top. Looking forward to another stay there.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the compliments and your business. Glad you enjoyed the property. We've added a number of amenities and still are working on several others. Once we are completed, we'll get some additional photos posted. I think our guests are going to enjoy the additional amenities (especially the outdoor firepit on the patio).

Beautiful house and conveniently located

  • 5 of 5

This home is absolutely beautiful and accommodated all 10 of us with more than enough room! Jeff welcomed us and gave us the history of the house. The house is conveniently located to town and you are able to walk wherever you want to go. I definitely recommend this house!

Absolutely Wonderful

  • 4 of 5

Of all the B&B's my "girls group of 7" has stayed at, this is at the top of the list. We rented the entire house and loved the space, decor and charm. Location was wonderful and all the staff and the owner we worked with, all communications were excellent.

Jeff we would like to suggest a handrail at the entrances for our older friends coming in and out and a few more bowls, pots and pans in the kitchen. We will be back. Thank you for a wonderful weekend.

Owner's Response: Thank you Lori for your business and taking the time to do a review. Also, appreciate the suggestions. One thing for future visits and other guests is there is another set of dishes in the dining room with plates/cups/bowls/etc. There should be plenty of everything for any size group.

Perfect spot for our family get-away!

  • 5 of 5

Nine of us stayed three nights at Keidel Inn this past week -- all girls. It was our first time to take a girls' family trip with this many of us -- we had girls in their 20s, 30s, 40s, 50s, 60s, and 70s!

The house was lovely -- 5 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms, beautifully furnished. Nice beds and bedding, nice-sized rooms, and a wonderful patio. Oh, and plenty of off-the-street parking!!

The Inn offers a continental breakfast -- they had prepared three LARGE casserole-type breakfasts for us the first day -- one for each day we were there. It was WAY MORE than we could eat! Plus milk, juice, coffee, muffins, oatmeal, fruit, cereal, etc. Perfect!

The owner was delightful and offered us a little history of his family and the house, too!

Girls' Weekend

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for our girls weekend in the wine country! The house had a lot of room and a fun, quaint atmosphere. The location itself is perfect too-- right down the street from all the fun Fredericksburg shops and restaurants.

I must also commend the Absolute Charm staff for their customer service. We had a girl lose her earring (that was very special to her) and didn't notice until after she left. She called as soon as she figured it out and the cleaning staff searched the house until they found it. That was simply the cherry on top of a fantastic stay.

Overall, the Keidel Inn is a great place to stay while in Fredericksburg. I hope to be back soon!

Perfection

  • 5 of 5

We had a FANTASTIC weekend at the Keidel Inn and Gasthaus. The house was much larger than we anticipated from the photos online. The relaxing atmosphere and decor were exactly what we wanted for our girls' trip. It was so nice to drink coffee on the patio, and we all loved the French toast casserole - what a nice touch! The location was perfect. We could not have asked for a better weekend.
