The unique, charming Potter's Cottage is the private and separate half of a 120 year old limestone house. It is located in a country-like setting just 4 blocks from Marketplatz on Main Street. There are two bedrooms, one with a queen bed, the other has two twin beds. One room is 4 steps up, the other 9 steps down from the comfortable living room. Walk through the private entrance into a living room filled with art. Two outdoor seating areas, one with a chiminea, offer a lovely setting to enjoy the drier, cooler weather of the Texas Hill Country. The patios are fenced as this is a pet friendly home away from home.
Finn, the owner of this house is an award winning potter. The art- filled rooms reflect her love of beauty, simplicity and the hand made.
You'll enjoy a quiet stay here, reminiscent of simpler times in a small Texas town.
Finn Alban, is the current owner of this historic farm house bought by her parents in 1966 as a place to retire. She is a 5th generation Texan and an award winning potter who creates pottery and sculpture in her studio behind the house. Finn's portion of the house is completely separate from the B&B.
Finn Alban purchased this house in 1966
'While growing up in San Antonio, I had often visited the Hill Country as a child. Even then, I knew that some day, some way, I would live there. When my son was 4 years old, that opportunity came and we moved here to this very special small town with its wonderful community.'
This antique and art filled property, is a well cared for, family home that has in the past, sheltered many people in a loving way. The sun bleached limestone walls give this house it's rightful sense of place in the Texas Hill Country.
We had a lovely time here. This was our first visit to Fredericksburg and will remember it fondly. We really enjoyed sitting in the backyard with the fire going at night. The cottage had everything we needed for a comfy stay. Zoey loved being able to roam around your fenced yard.
Thank you so much. Have a lovely Holiday! We will be back again!
We had such an amazing time here!! Close to everything. We walked mostly everywhere, and everything was provided that you would find in a hotel, plus more. Our dogs tagged along with us, and there was a huge yard for them. We all loved it, and would definitely return. There was also games provided which came in hand after getting severely sunburned at the lake!. The house is decorated beautifully and the second room is so charming we loved it! We hope to make a trip down again since we didn't get to see everything. Thank you so much.
We had a great time at the house. Everything was clean and organized, and we had everything we needed. The two bedrooms were very comfortable. We enjoyed having coffee on the front porch in the morning and playing cards on the patio in the evening. It was great to be so close to downtown Fredericksburg. Highly recommend.
Potters Cottage is a cute clean hideaway within easy distance of Main Street, easy access to wineries and Enchanted Rock, and a nice courtyard or front porch to relax on after a busy day. Buy some wine and watch the fireflies. The rooms and beds are comfortable, the bathroom is very large and well equipped, and you have a small fridge for whatever, a coffee pot for the morning, and a microwave. Finn is a super nice lady and excellent hostess. We had strawberries and chocolate and apples waiting for us, as well as milk and cereal for the morning. Highly recommend this property!
This little place was just perfect! Close enough to the "strip", yet far enough to feel like it was out in the country. Cozy and well maintained, perfect for two or a family of 4. Finn was gracious and the place was perfect for my little weekend getaway. It was so charming I was tempted to just stay there for my entire visit and not venture out to the surrounding areas! I would definitely stay at her place again!
Our stay was great. Close to main street but isolated too. Everything needed was there for us. Loved the front porch area and the back yard area. There is no kitchen but we knew that and didnt care since we werent there to cook. If you come to shop and sight see, then come back for a nice sleep, this is the place for you. There are games, books, tv and even wifi to entertain you.
If you ever go to Fredericksburg, Texas, this is the perfect place to stay. So charming and comfortable. Finn has so carefully outfitted the cottage, down to the last detail, there will be nothing else you need but to kick back and enjoy. Also, the pet-friendly accommodations makes it perfect for your furr babies ;). I would highly recommend the Potters Cottage to everyone.
