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.

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.
