Overview

Fredericksburg Cottage Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedrooms, 2 Full Bathrooms, sleeps 4 maximum

Bella Vista Cottage becomes your own private world, a secluded escape from the pressures of everyday life. Our cottage feels like home because that's what it was built for.

The Cottage is nestled in a small vale situated on 55 acres of scenic Texas Hill Country property and just 20 minutes from downtown historic Fredericksburg, Texas. We pride ourselves on having created a luxurious tranquil setting and atmosphere.

Our careful attention to detail and the natural beauty of the location help promote a feeling of peaceful elegance and grace. Upon arrival guests receive a bottle of wine and a box of hand made chocolates to begin the healing process.

The Cottage is a soothing Texas Hill Country retreat full of “Charm, Character, Calm, and Charisma.” Tranquility permeates the atmosphere of Bella Vista.

Further Details: Bella Vista Cottage was designed and built by Kevin and JoAnna Burns with the help of Eric Mustard, a local Fredericksburg architect. The 2,000 square foot cottage is meant to be a weekend getaway home to relax and unwind from the hectic stress of city life.

Kevin and JoAnna’s dedication to quality at Bella Vista shines throughout all areas of the house -- from its individualized room decorations, the handmade glass tiles and custom made pendant lamps in the kitchen and the tastefully coordinated original window treatments. The Burns’ used green and recycled technologies where practical and there is free WI-FI throughout the cottage to allow you to stay in touch with the outside world if the mood suits you. There is also covered parking to protect your vehicle.

The exterior design of Bella Vista contains architectural elements of the local German farm houses, Victorian style cottages and American Prairie architecture melded into a unique, inviting and modern approach. The beautiful and scenic views offered from the front and back covered porches enhance the tranquility.

Staying at the Bella Vista Cottage is a truly luxurious, memorable, romantic and fun experience. The Kevin and JoAnna pride themselves on taking excellent care of their guests making them feel at home from the first moment they step into Bella Vista Cottage.

About the Owner: We like to travel and garden. We have an antique Italian car and 3 cats: Merry, Pippen and Mr. Darcy.

Why the Owner Chose Fredericksburg:

We have been in love with the Texas Hill Country since our 1st trip there. We built this cottage from scratch and hope you will enjoy it as much as we do. There is much to do in the area: wine tastings, vineyard tours, the Nimitz Museum, Oktoberfest, many specialty and antique shops, Enchanted Rock and Lost Maples State parks, the LBJ Ranch and great roads to explore the local beauty.

Could have been a 5 star rental, but apparent deferred maintenance compromised it

  • 3 of 5
One of the nicest VRBO's we've been too in terms of the accommodations, the well appointed kitchen, comfortable bed, owner accommodating our request for an early check-in, etc. I can say many positives about this place. It is a good 20-25 minute drive in from the country where the cottage is, to downtown Fredericksburg, so plan your days and evenings accordingly. Unfortunately, we were only there for 2 nights, and in the middle of the 2nd night, a smoke detector started beeping every 30 seconds, apparently because a backup battery died. We placed a blanket over the master BR door, a robe at the bottom of the door, and turned the fans on high to drown out the noise. I was able to sleep through it, but my wife was up all night. I couldn't get access to the smoke detector due to it's location high on a vaulted ceiling, and a ladder not being available. The owners live in Dallas, so there was no immediate solution available to us. In retrospect, we should have left the property and checked at a hotel in town. Quite a shame, because this would have otherwise been a 5 star review for us.

Owner's Response: We are so sorry that the backup battery failed on your visit and that your wife had trouble sleeping. We have addressed the problem. Unfortunately, whether we live next door or several hours away, the battery could not have been changed immediately – these things do happen and we have no control over it. You didn't notify us of the issue until you checked out, the v-mail stamp is 11:15 am the next morning, to give us the chance to correct the issue.

However, there is/was no deferred maintenance. We change the 9 volt batteries annually (we do it every Jan 1st so not to forget) as recommended by the manufacture of the detectors as part of our routine maintenance program. Our smoke detectors are hardwired and use batteries as a back-up to keep our guests safe in the event of a power failure. This week is the 1st time in 4 years the batteries have ever failed prematurely, I can only assume we purchased a bad batch as the expiration date was in 2017.

Again we sincerely apologize for the inconvenience and are glad that you found our home satisfactory and hope that you would consider coming back.

Wonderful Weekend Getaway

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I had every intention of spending our weekend in Fredericksburg strolling around the downtown, visiting wineries and dining in the local restaurants. Instead we spent almost our entire time at Bella Vista. Once we arrived we just didn't want to leave! Luckily we had arranged to have wine and cheese and breakfast food in the house when we arrived so we ended up having that for dinner the first night. It was by far the most peaceful and relaxing weekend we have had in a very long time. The home is so cozy and comfortable inside and out-we spent a great deal of time on the back porch with Frida the cat. My husband, who claims to not like cats, wouldn't leave Bella Vista until he said goodbye to her, she is very sweet!
We are already planning our return trip to Bella Vista. It was wonderful!

What an amazing experience!

  • 5 of 5
What an amazing experience! My husband and I stayed at Bella Vista Cottage to celebrate our anniversary. We planned on touring the wineries, eating at the local restaurants, and doing some shopping. We were so in love with our surroundings at the cottage, we went to two wineries and cooked in the gourmet kitchen both nights instead. We couldn't resist sitting on the back porch and enjoying the gorgeous scenery and wildlife. I highly recommend Bella Vista to anyone who is looking for a beautiful, peaceful, scenic spot to enjoy time with a loved one.

Perfect in every way

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I spent 3 nights at Bella Vista Cottage. It was absolutely the perfect getaway for us! In just under a 3 hour drive from our home we arrived at your peaceful, cozy, beautifully furnished home! From the moment we walked in we felt comfortable and relaxed. There were so many thoughtful extras...wine, fruit, candy, kolaches, muffins. We lounged on the comfortable furnishings in the living area while watching movies and felt like we were in a theater thanks to the TV and surround system! The bedroom was luxurious and the bathroom had amenities like those sound in a spa. We thoroughly enjoyed drinking our morning coffee out on the porches while taking in the spectacular hill country landscape! The plentiful wildlife (deer, raccoon, fox, rabbits & birds) kept us company and of course, so did the resident cat Frida. We have 2 cats of our own so we really enjoyed spoiling Frida.
Thank you for such a fabulous experience. It truly was perfect in every way and we hope to return again.

Perfect getaway!

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I stayed two nights and quickly realized the need for more time at the cottage. It was exactly what we needed and the accommodations couldn't have been any better!

The attention to detail of the cottage is amazing and the kitchen was fantastic for the meal we prepared there. The master suite was super comfortable from the amazing king bed to the big screen tv to the relaxing view out the windows. The master bath is perfect with the huge jetted tub and massive walk-in shower with bench.

My wife and I found the drive into town no big deal. It was a quick 15 minutes and lots to see along the way. And watch out for the deer!

We brought our bikes and had a wonderful ride on the country roads and didn't even see one vehicle during our 45 minute ride.

The peace and quiet was our favorite part. So relaxing! The last evening we watched almost a dozen deer wander the landscape and had a fantastic sunset on the porch to end the day.

Thanks for sharing your home Kevin and we will be back for more days next time!
