1896 HISTORICAL RETREAT RANCH / POOL TENNIS PARTY BARN

Fredericksburg House Rental Photos and Description

House, 5 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 10-12)

This is a quite, private, maintained Historical Ranch House. A place to relax & enjoy family, friends, and yes of course the Facilities...

As you drive up the property you will notice an historical school on your left, This is when you realize your about to experience something very special. The road takes you across the cattle guard with 20 plus Oak Trees towering over you from both sides of the road. You will notice cattle grazing on the left but your attention will keep you staring right...

The right side of the road sits the Historical Home with the Texas Flag welcoming you into the Gate. The home is surrounded by wooden fence to keep the cattle out. The Barn opens into a Large Party Barn with walk around decks, inside has Pool Table, ping pong table, neon signs, 3 flat screen TVs, frig, music, etc... 'kids really enjoy it and it allows the adults to relax back at the main house'.

The trees light up at night around the pool and the Covered Terrace. The Terrace has a large outdoor grill as well as a fire pit for the kids to sit around at night. The hot tub seems to be a nice touch at the end of the evening as well. The tennis court is a full size court so be sure to bring your racquets. Horse shoes and washers are a daily sport as well as biking and walking the property. Bring your bucket to fill with pecans also...

Marc Chase, grew up in Austin, TX and still lives there with Wife Marta and 3 kids Kailey 12, Brooklyn 10, & Garrett 4. Love to Travel with Family and use VRBO as it always us to enjoy the comfort of a true family home.

Marc & Marta Chase purchased this house in 2005

Fell in Love with Property from the moment we stepped in the Front Door. Above is two pictures of the home from the early 1900's. The home has a true sense of History and how life might have been before Cell Phones and Direct TV.

This property allows us the opportunity to escape the fast lifestyle of the City and Relax under the stars in the Country without the kids complaining their 'bored'!

NICE PLACE FOR A GETAWAY!!

  • 5 of 5
We went to Fredericksburg for a girl's weekend with coworkers. The home was cozy, had a great dining room and a nice outdoors area with plenty to do! We did spend some time in town and on a wine tour so we didn't utilize the home as much as i think we could. But we did jump in the hot tub one evening and played some games in the party barn. Overall we enjoyed our stay and a few of us have thought about returning in the future.

CHARMING & AUTHENTIC

Charming & authentic
  • 4 of 5
We stayed with a group of 10 cyclists and came away with mixed impressions of the home. First the negatives: The home felt a bit neglected. There were only 10 forks and 3 spoons. If the house sleeps this many people, it should be able to feed them as well. The kitchen could use a thorough spring cleaning. There were no smoke detectors on the first floor and it looked like one in the kitchen had been removed. The windows on the second floor did not open, in fact many windows did not open/were merely plexiglas screwed to the sash. There were many TVs, but no instructions to use and the one in the party barn didn't want to give up the rented DVD. Positives: Location was fabulous. Outdoor spaces were great - spa and fire pit particularly. The house as a whole was very charming and authentic. Harrison, the caretaker, was very personable and helpful, as was the owner.

CHARMING QUAINT HOME NOT FAR FROM TOWN 3.5 STARS

  • 4 of 5
Upon arriving at the cottage I was surprised to find that two of the five bedrooms were accessed through a stairway outside. One of the rooms above the house does not have a door and you have to step over a 3 foot wall to enter into the bedroom, this is probably suitable for a teenager or young adult but the two bedrooms upstairs are not for young children, elderly or anyone with disabilities in my opinion. The lay out of the house is a bit strange. The dining room was perfect with a long table and comfortable chairs; the kitchen was adequate and stocked with all of the cooking utensils and pans we needed. The living rooms were both quite comfortable, and the master bedroom is grand with a very comfortable bed there is another bedroom down stairs with a large bed and comfortable surroundings. The third bedroom downstairs is hardly a bedroom due to its small size; this room has twin size bunk beds and would be great for the kiddos but not much else. There are two refrigerators which was really nice. There is only one shower in the house and with 8 girls this was a small challenge. The outdoor area is beautiful, pool, hot tub, bar, outdoor lights, game room all perfect!!! The outdoor area is amazing but since it was winter time we did not get to spend much time outdoors. This home comes with a high rental fee and I am not sure we would stay here again because of that.

Owner's Response: I apologize for any misunderstanding, The Historical 1896 Home has two rooms upstairs that is only accessible from the front porch. The rooms are very large with a hall bath & shower. This part of the home is very unique and may not be suitable for Elders. Downstairs has a full hall bath and the Mst Suite has a walk in shower.

GREAT BIRTHDAY WEEKEND AT THE RANCH!

  • 4 of 5
We decided to head up to the wine country for a weekend and this ranch was perfect for the 11 of us! We loved the fire pit at night and the hot tub. :-) It was a little too cold for us to use the pool. We had a great time and enjoyed the peace away from the city for a couple of days. We will defiantly be back with the kids in the spring to fully enjoy all the amenities!

WEEKEND FAMILY REUNION

  • 5 of 5
14 of us, ranging in age from 2 - 84, traveled from California, Georgia, Kansas and Texas. The Hill Country is such a beautiful part of Texas: we climbed the Enchanted Rock, played golf at the nearby Lady Bird Johnson course, and used all the facilities at the charming old homestead. Fredericksburg is
a fun town to browse for souvenirs and snacks. The caretaker was quite helpful, and we really enjoyed petting and feeding the long- horns. I would definitely recommend this place for reunions and retreats.

RELAXING VACATION WITH FRIENDS

  • 5 of 5
My group of 13 had an amazing stay at the ranch. First off, everyone got a bed! We never left the house the whole weekend to explore beautiful Fredericksburg. We swam, played games, tennis, ping pong, cooked, ate, drank, sang, danced...it was awesome. The house and grounds are beautiful and clean. We were disappointed that we could not use the smoker (filled with wasps) and the dishwasher was already filled when we got there. Other than that, everything was fantastic. Plenty of dishes available in the kitchen, cable tv, lots of towels, clean beds and floors, and nicely isolated (no neighbors telling us to turn off the music at 4am!)

We had a blast and wished we were able to stay longer to enjoy the surrounding area.
