Finn Alban, is the current owner of this historic farm house bought by her parents in 1966 as a place to retire. She is a 5th generation Texan and an award winning potter who creates pottery and sculpture in her studio behind the house. Finn's portion of the house is completely separate from the B&B.

Finn Alban purchased this house in 1966

'While growing up in San Antonio, I had often visited the Hill Country as a child. Even then, I knew that some day, some way, I would live there. When my son was 4 years old, that opportunity came and we moved here to this very special small town with its wonderful community.'

This art filled property, is a well cared for, family home that has in the past, sheltered many people in a loving way. The sun bleached limestone walls give this house it's rightful sense of place in the Texas Hill Country.

Adorable

  • 5 of 5
To begin, this little cottage was amazing. Such a homey and comfortable feel with a hostess that is so giving! The home is small but is so accommodating and laid out perfectly for easy maneuvering. My husband and I were very impressed with property as well. The front and back yards are shaded and fenced in - so if you have a pet (which we did) they can run free. Also, there were many dog accommodations inside the house as well.
The walk to town is very short! The city is within an arms reach but when your "home" you have the perfect piece of land to rest on. Very quiet and peaceful.
The location of the home is also a short distance (20 minutes driving or so) to most major attractions!
If you're looking for a gracious hostess with a home that is minutes away from any activity, this is it!

Cute little cottage, perfect for a quick getaway!

  • 5 of 5
This cottage was perfect for a quick getaway. It was clean and cozy. Close to Main St and within walking distance if you are wanting to get some exercise in. There isn't a kitchen but there is a mini fridge, microwave and coffee machine. I normally do not make meals when on quick vacations anyway, so this was perfect. Finn left a bowl full of fruit on the table for our arrival and then the next morning, she even baked delicious banana muffins and left them on the front porch with some butter, loved it! The cottage is rustic which fits the feel of Fredericksburg perfectly. Finn does live next door but we didn't find that an issue at all since we were rarely there (we visited wineries, local restaurants and Enchanted Rock). Everything we needed was at our fingertips. Cute spot, you won't be disappointed!

We loved our stay! Finn is a gracious hostess. The cottage is perfect for a romantic weekend. Close to Main Street but not to close. Private and quiet.
We hope to return

Rest full, art filled, authentic

  • 5 of 5
For my first time in this part of our country, I wanted to experience a sense of those who settled here. Finn's accommodation, hospitality, and historic knowledge due to her multi-generation heritage in the area more than gave me the experience I was seeking. Her ceramic studio and products (several which I purchased to remind me of my travels here) were the unexpected added value to my stay. The property is immaculate. I wanted for nothing. All my needs were anticipated due to Finn's keen and aesthetic eye to detail. Quiet, private, magical, thoughtful. I will recommend this lovely respite to all.
