I stumbled upon Fredericksburg one year on a cross country jaunt back to California and never left! Although I have to travel for my primary engineering business I have a wonderful set of folks who live on the ranch and help me manage it as if it was their own. I have the luxury of coming home to my very own vacation spot where I can enjoy my horses and meet the special folks who stay at the ranch as our guests.

Patricia purchased this house in 2003

Beautiful and quaint old historic town, built by the Germans using native limestone rock. Small town but big city amenities-upscale restaurants, theater, music, shopping, fitness/spas and medical services. Town leadership very aggressive in providing activities for visitors year round and marketing to promote tourism. Still very rural, population under 10K close to Austin & San Antonio.

Bordered on the west by pastures and grazing cattle, helpful neighbors and wide open sky but only minutes away from the amenties of Fredericksburg.

NICE PROPERTY FOR FAMILIES AND GROUPS

  • 4 of 5
The property was nice and ready upon arrival. Location was convenient to most of the sights and activities around the area. The owner was most accommodating and pleasant to work with. Great time in the Hill Country.

JUST OKAY...

  • 3 of 5
The property was okay. Kind of rundown and was a bit confusing to find. Kitchen didn't have much to cook with so be sure to bring anything you might need. Thought we'd be staying at the main house at the spotted pony ranch. But this house was pretty far away. The website did not convey clearly that it wasn't part of the ranch. Had to call the owner a few times to get her to pick up to actually find the info/location. I'd probably not stay at this property again or recommend it to a friend or family member.

Owner's Response: I'm sorry to hear this. My guests' satisfaction is important to me but I don't know that I could have made this particular guest happy as it sounds like they had expectations that didn't align with what was being offered.
The guest informed me that she hadn't read her rental agreement which contains all the details, including the location of the property. There is nothing on VRBO that indicates that it is located on Spotted Pony Ranch. The property address and directions clearly state that it is 7 miles North of Main St., both on the rental agreement as well as on the VRBO listing Yes, the kitchen only has the basics, it is not set up for a gourmet cook, information which is also contained in the rental agreement. A picture of the kitchen is included in the listing.
The guests tried to reach me on their way in and unfortunately I was on a trail ride and out of reception for several hours in the afternoon. As soon as I could, I called back and then called again (twice) to make sure they had arrived. I’m sure it must have been frustrating for them to believe that they had arrived after a long drive only to find out that it wasn’t the right address and then not be able to reach me immediately.
The home was built in the 90's and the kitchen is of early 2000 vintage- I'm not sure what the guests were expecting. The furniture is in great shape, there are antiques but maybe that is not what these folks prefer.
By all means, if you are looking for a brand new home then this is not it but it also doesn't come with the price tag of a brand new home.
I would encourage everyone who may be interested in potentially renting my property to READ the rental agreement and the description contained in the listing and look at the pictures. All accurately portray the property.
It’s not very satisfying for either the owner (myself) or the guests if they go away unhappy.

VERY ATTENTIVE

  • 5 of 5
I was recently on vrbo planning another trip and just wanted to confirm everything the owner said she did to compensate for our tense interaction with her staff. She was wonderful to talk to, very apologetic and went out of her way to make sure that our next visit is comfortable. And we will definitely return!! It is lovely there! Book it, you'll love it.

THE STARS AT NIGHT ARE BIG & BRIGHT AT THIS VRBO PROPERTY

The Stars At Night Are Big & Bright At This VRBO Property
  • 5 of 5
Had a great stay in this property. It was in a good location for us, well situated between things we had planned. Short jaunt in to Fredericksburg, Enchanted Rock, Wildseed Farms, various vineyards, Luckenbach, etc. Even took a quick trip to Blanco to visit Real Ale Brewery and eat at the Redbud Cafe. We thoroughly enjoyed being outside of town where we could enjoy the stars at night and have ample space for our dogs. The kitchen was very well stocked with pots/pans/utensils and we cooked many of our meals. We only used the downstairs area as it was just the two of us with our two dogs. The downstairs bedroom was huge and the king size bed was very comfortable. I was spoiled by all the space in the bathroom, too. Plus from the bathroom we had a perfect vantage point to eye the barn swallow (?) nest attached to the garage. The owners were very nice and helpful, we just wish we had more time to visit their ranch too!

Notes:
Just a couple ideas that you might like to consider to make the visit even more memorable - we do private horse back tours on a several hundred acre ranch. The rates are $125 per person. Adults only. Safety is our 1st priority, then a short second is LOTS of FUN! The scenery is pretty awesome too. If you're looking for something a bit less wild west or are on a tighter schedule, I offer 1+ hour pasture/farm road rides. Rates are $75 per person. A sack Lunch at the Ranch where we ride or a sit down meal at a Fredericksburg winery is also offered at the completion of a trail ride. Rates are $10-15 per person plus the optional $10 wine tasting. Pls call ahead for reservations. Ask about a full day of wine, food, trail riding and fun offered in partnership with Moon Wine Voyages, a package offered at $225 per person. Personalized tours and transportation services also provided by Moon Wine Voyages.
