Overview

Fredericksburg House Rental Photos and Description

House, 5 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 10-12)

This is a quite, private, maintained Historical Ranch House. A place to relax & enjoy family, friends, and yes of course the Facilities...

As you drive up the property you will notice an historical school on your left, This is when you realize your about to experience something very special. The road takes you across the cattle guard with 20 plus Oak Trees towering over you from both sides of the road. You will notice cattle grazing on the left but your attention will keep you staring right...

The right side of the road sits the Historical Home with the Texas Flag welcoming you into the Gate. The home is surrounded by wooden fence to keep the cattle out. The Barn opens into a Large Party Barn with walk around decks, inside has Pool Table, ping pong table, neon signs, 3 flat screen TVs, frig, music, etc... 'kids really enjoy it and it allows the adults to relax back at the main house'.

The trees light up at night around the pool and the Covered Terrace. The Terrace has a large outdoor grill as well as a fire pit for the kids to sit around at night. The hot tub seems to be a nice touch at the end of the evening as well. The tennis court is a full size court so be sure to bring your racquets. Horse shoes and washers are a daily sport as well as biking and walking the property. Bring your bucket to fill with pecans also...

About Marc & Marta Chase

Marc Chase, grew up in Austin, TX and still lives there with Wife Marta and 3 kids. Love to Travel with Family and use VRBO as it allows us to enjoy the comfort of a true family home.

Marc & Marta Chase purchased this house in 2005

Why Marc & Marta Chase chose Texas Hill Country

Fell in Love with Property from the moment we stepped in the Front Door. Above is two pictures of the home from the early 1900's. The home has a true sense of History and how life might have been before Cell Phones and Direct TV.

What makes this house unique

This property allows us the opportunity to escape the fast lifestyle of the City and Relax under the stars in the Country without the kids complaining their 'bored'!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Marc,



We had such a great time at the house. The house is beautiful. I'm hoping to rent again in the summer with my family. Thank you so much!



Sincerely

You won't want to leave this gem of a property.

Fantastic house. Took a weekend trip with our children and family and they couldn't have been happier. From the pool/hot tub to the game room barn, and tennis court, we were occupied all day. The adults especially enjoyed the grill areas and fire pit. This is a very large property. The description on the site might not do it justice.

The inside of the house is just as great. We had 9 adults and 4 children and we all slept comfortably. With a 15 minute drive to downtown Fredricksburg we got to be secluded, yet close enough to a grocery store if needed. Harrison, the maintenance man, was outstanding. Super nice guy and very attentive. My only regret is not renting it for longer. I will definitely be bringing my family back.

This home was the perfect setting for our family to celebrate our 40th Anniversary.

  • 5 of 5

There was so much to do at this property that it was hard to leave to do other things. A bottle of wine awaited us on the kitchen counter and Harrison did a great job going over how to turn on the hot tub and outside lights. Our grandkids loved the pool, roasting marshmallows, they learned to play tennis and billiards, chess, and they already loved ping pong. The BBQ area was great for a cookout and the kitchen had modern conveniences to prepare meals. After climbing Enchanted Rock and going on wine tours, the hot tub felt great. There was plenty of shade and a great breeze that we were outside most of the time and the house was cool when we were inside. There were plenty of beds for our group - 7 adults and 3 kids. I would definitely recommend this place to a friend.

Hill Country Excellence

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved the property and accommodations. It's outside the busyness of downtown Fredericksburg but just a few minute drive and you're there. The kids loved the pool, the tennis court & the party barn. I would definitely recommend this property.

Great, quiet little getaway with several amenities!

  • 4 of 5

We loved this property! Great for 5 couples and 3 toddlers. We were surprised to find the stairwell to the upstairs rooms were outside (under cover of the patio), but they were very spacious. Most of us hung around the property all weekend instead of going into town and were so relaxed! Hope to come back soon!

Great home for a family get together

  • 5 of 5

We spent 3 nights with 9 family members--all adults, 3 generations. The home was relaxing, rustic in a good way, and allowed us to enjoy each other and the property. Spent Sunday in the party barn watching football while playing pool and ping pong to entertain others. Enjoyed the firepit and made s'mores. It was more expensive than other nearby properties, but the space and amenities made it worthwhile.
