Fredericksburg House Rental Photos and Description

4 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths (Sleeps 8)

This house is built in the regional 'Sunday Haus' style, and is nestled on a hillside offering expansive views of the Hill Country. Situated 4 miles from Main Street, and a short drive to shopping and restaurants, but offering the quiet solitude of the countryside.

The wrap-around porch provides a wonderful gathering place. The pond features a waterfall and attracts deer frequently. All bedrooms are spacious, with one on the first level, and a den and three additional bedrooms on the second level. Three of the bedrooms have queen size beds, and the fourth has two twin beds. All beds feature memory foam mattresses and Egyptian Cotton Sheets.

The sizable kitchen is equipped with a gas stove, microwave oven, side by side fridge/freezer, and dishwasher. The first level has wood beamed ceilings and pine plank floors, while the upstairs has plush 'Berber' carpeting. A whole house water softener/filtration system has recently been added. Full size front load washer and dryer are available for guest use. This is an old Fredericksburg house that has been updated, but still maintains much of the old feel.

PLEASE NOTE;

*THE POND IS NOT FENCED, AND THEREFORE THIS PROPERTY IS NOT SUITABLE FOR UNSUPERVISED CHILDREN

*NO PETS

*NO BACHELORETTE PARTIES

Fredericksburg was settled by German immigrants, led by John O. Meusebach in 1846. Although the settlement was on Comanche Frontier, the Meusebach-Comanche Treaty established lasting peace. Many older buildings retain traditional German and frontier styles, with over 700 historical structures in the historic district alane. Many are on the National Register of Historic Places. German is still spoken on occasions, and old German customs are regularly observed. Schuetzen Fests (marksmanship), Oktoberfest, Weihnachten, and Kinderfest, to name a few.

Visitors are attracted by the scenic beauty,, European atmosphere, and historic landmarks. Fredericksburg is home to the Pacific War Museum, and birthplace of Fleet Adm. Chester W. Nimitz, Commander in Chief of the Pacific Fleet during World War II.

We loved the place! Very clean and comfortable. Beautiful views all around and great for walks, bike rides etc. just far enough from town to feel like a getaway but close enough to enjoy restaurants, shopping etc. We plan to come back!

A great little house in a fabulous location

  • 5 of 5

My family (wife and 2 daughters) and I have been coming here for 3 years straight now and we love the house and the location . . . about 10 minutes from downtown F'burg. So very peaceful and quiet. The house has enough room for folks to spread out a bit but is still quite cozy. A fully functional kitchen and dining room mean that we are not obligated to dine out every night . . . we prefer to eat in and maximize our family time together in this wonderful little retreat setting. Owners/managers make it very easy to get in and get out and I find the rates quite reasonable. Highly, highly recommend this if you want something peaceful and quiet but still providing easy access to downtown F'burg.

Nice view!

  • 5 of 5

Loved the house and the remodel of the bedrooms. We loved to sit on the porch and take in the view. We saw deer in the evening and heard the roosters in the mornings. The kitchen was well stocked with cookware and dishes. Owner was easy to work with and always answered my emails in a timely manner.
