RUSTIC HILL COUNTRY RETREAT WITH SUPERB VIEWS

Fredericksburg House Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths (Sleeps 6)

This house is built in the regional 'Sunday Haus' style, and is nestled on a hillside offering expansive views of the Hill Country. Situated 4 miles from Main Street, and a short drive to shopping and restaurants, but offering the quiet solitude of the countryside.

The large wrap-around porch provides a wonderful gathering place. The pond features a waterfall and attracts deer frequently. All bedrooms are spacious, with one on the first level, and a den and two additional bedrooms on the second level. Two of the bedrooms have queen size beds, while the third has a double and two twin beds. The large kitchen is equipped with a gas stove, microwave oven, and dishwasher. The first level has wood beamed ceilings and pine plank floors, while the upstairs has plush 'Berber' carpeting.

***Please note the pond is not fenced. Therefor the property is not suitable for unsupervised children***

A whole house water softener/filtration system has recently been added.

Full size front load washer and dryer, restricted access entry, and covered parking add to the many amenities of this special property.

Fredericksburg was settled by German immigrants, led by John O. Meusebach in 1846. Although the settlement was on Comanche Frontier, the Meusebach-Comanche Treaty established lasting peace. Many older buildings retain traditional German and frontier styles, with over 700 historical structures in the historic district alane. Many are on the National Register of Historic Places. German is still spoken on occasions, and old German customs are regularly observed. Schuetzen Fests (marksmanship), Oktoberfest, Weihnachten, and Kinderfest, to name a few.

Visitors are attracted by the scenic beauty,, European atmosphere, and historic landmarks. Fredericksburg is home to the Pacific War Museum, and birthplace of Fleet Adm. Chester W. Nimitz, Commander in Chief of the Pacific Fleet during World War II.

I have always loved spending time in the Texas Hill Country, and being a cyclist, I was drawn to Fredericksburg. The numerous county roads offer many spectacular cycling routes.

My search criteria for the 'right' property included; being reasonably close to town, while offering views, and the house having architectural interest. This property was the only one that came close (in my price range), so I decided to buy it. I really look forward to my trips down to Fredericksburg, and especially enjoy watching the sun rise and set against the hills. The night skies are quite spectacular for star gazing.

My friends have especially enjoyed accompanying me down to the area. They delight in the shopping, the many restaurants and wineries, and hiking Enchanted Rock State Park.

I hope you make it down and enjoy the property as much as I do!

GREAT STAY!

  • 5 of 5
We thoroughly enjoyed our short weekend stay for a mini family reunion. The deck was the best place to relax after shopping the town and visiting a couple of wineries. We grilled steaks and enjoyed dinner with wine while enjoying the scenery. The kitchen was well stocked with everything you needed to cook all meals (you provide the food). He even had coffee for breakfast! I highly recommend staying :)!

PEACEFUL, COMFORTABLE HOME

  • 5 of 5
The home is lovely, comfortable, and about an 8-10 minute drive to main street in Fredericksburg. The best part is the porch, which provides a great view of the surroundings and stars. The house is equipped with everything we needed. We will definitely return.

THE PERFECT HOUSE!

  • 5 of 5
Oak Haven Haus was perfect! The home was very clean, nicely decorated, well maintained, and the listing description was spot on. We debated whether to stay within walking distance of town or staying at Oak Haven and we're so glad we chose Oak Haven. The quiet surroundings kept us sitting on the deck talking for hours. It was so relaxing being so secluded surrounded by trees and a pond. This is definitely a place I would stay in again and would highly recommend. Also, Gavin responded to my e-mails promptly and he returned the full security deposit within 4 days of us leaving. Stay at Oak Haven and you won't be sorry.

EXCELLENT VIEWS FROM A BEAUTIFUL HOME!

  • 5 of 5
What a great place to stay! We enjoyed playing cards and drinking wine on the awesome deck. The second floor deck is a great place to drink coffee and enjoy the incredible views. It was plenty of room for two couples and we really enjoyed Fredericksburg and the Texas wine country.

Thanks...Brian

BREATHTAKING VIEWS

  • 5 of 5
This house was the perfect location for a weekend getaway with friends! Peaceful, clean, beautiful, relaxing, and full of nature. 3 days after being home, we are all still talking about the phenomenal views from the deck as we drank our coffee each morning. We could not have asked for more, everything was clean, organized, the kitchen was well stocked, the beds were comfortable, and did I mention the AMAZING VIEW???? If you want to relax, spend time with family and friends, or just get away for a weekend-this is THE place!

The owner was extremely helpful with all of my questions and communicated promptly and professionally. Great customer service!

WONDERFUL HOUSE FOR A GROUP GETAWAY!

  • 5 of 5
We rented the Oak Haven Haus for a weekend reunion before my little brother's wedding and had an amazing time. The house was very spacious and had a great country feel to it - it could have easily accommodated 5-6 more people and I would love to return with a group in the future. The wrap around porch provided amazing views of the hill country which we enjoyed while reading and having coffee in the mornings.

We really enjoyed the location as it seemed very secluded but also was only minutes from downtown when we wanted to go out to eat. We also went out on a couple of great bike rides and there were plenty of maps and suggested rides kept in a binder by the homeowner. Thanks for a great trip and I hope to bring a group back again in the future!
