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.

'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!

Owner upset and we were too when we thought we were renting the whole cottage but got there and only had 2 bedrooms and I bath with no kitchen attached to owners own home. Had to find accommodations at almost 5 pm on a Friday and Vacasa Property Management saved us by placing us in a small home. Expensive lesson though original owner was good enough to refund 1/2 of the charges.
We were a party of 3 women so having 2 bedrooms(with 3 beds) was very nice.
The bathroom was very large but the sink and mirror vanity was too small for more than one to use at a time.
We arrived at dark and the property was not well lit. But once inside we were delighted with the decor of the spacious rooms.
Overall, we were very happy with our weekend stay just blocks away from downtown Fredericksburg.
My husband and I spent a few days with our teenage girls exploring Fredericksburg. Finn's cottage was just the right size and spot for us. The girls enjoyed their bedroom in what had previously been a wine cellar and now is set up as a precious children's room. My husband and I were delighted to walk to the grocery store and to see the many museums. The patio and front porch gave us the opportunity to spend time together outdoors. We also loved the opportunity to enjoy Finn's beautiful collection of artwork.
This cottage is very welcoming and comfortable. The owner lives next door and was quickly available to solve some minor issues with the TV and AC. Highly recommended for a weekend getaway in the Hill Country!
The only two complaints is that there didn't seem to be much hot water. The showers were with luke warm water. Also the wood for the chiminea outside was too wet to burn. Other than that the cottage was cozy and enjoyable. We were within walking distance to downtown. Overall a great stay.
