About the property

Comfortable stone guest house with 1 bedroom, 1 bath. Sleeps 4.

This charming early 1900s German rock house is located a block from the Marktplatz, the site of many Fredericksburg events, and two blocks from the prime shopping and dining area. The authentic interior of the house has beautiful limestone walls with antique wood floors and the original eleven foot beaded board ceilings. The entire house is furnished with antique furniture and German décor. The queen sleeper in the living room provides sleeping for additional guests, while the bedroom has a king size bed with designer linens. The bath has a small claw foot tub complete with a rain shower. The quaint kitchen with granite counter tops and a farm sink is fully equipped.

Relax in the rockers on the front porch under the Pecan trees or stroll the neighborhood of historic homes. Enjoy a glass of wine or your morning coffee while relaxing in the cozy, leafy backyard on the rock patio. To enjoy a horse carriage ride through town, the carriage can pick you up at your front door. You can visit the many wineries in the area by booking one of the tour buses that will pick you up. The private drive off of the backyard provides off street parking.

Charming house located in the heart of historic Fredericksburg

  • 5 of 5

Fred Haus is a beautiful trip back in time. The house is gorgeously appointed with antiques, period pieces and all of the comforts of modern amenities. There is a lot of thoughtful attention to the smallest details that contribute to a comfortable stay: good coffee, chocolates, snacks and beverages in the refrigerator. In the living room there are brochures with recommendations for things to do in the area. All of these details provided a welcoming atmosphere and made our stay in Fredericksburg enjoyable.

Wonderful cottage!

  • 5 of 5

We completely enjoyed our visit to the Texas Hill Country and stay at Fred. Haus in particular. The cottage is very well appointed, spotlessly clean and cozy. We very much appreciated all the special touches and extras, from homemade Christmas chocolate to cider in the fridge. We have stayed at many VRBOs and AirBnBs that spoiled us, but Ron and Darla are exceptional hosts. To top it off, I forgot my jacket at the cottage and they mailed it back to me without charge and with a lovely note inside. Recommend very highly.

Perfect location and host!

  • 5 of 5

Wow - what a great house and host in Fredericksburg! The house is so cozy and welcoming - all sorts of goodies placed throughout the home. The backyard patio with fire pit was a nice retreat to reflect and watch the birds at the feeders after a busy day exploring. The home is two blocks north of the main street so very easy to shop and eat without having to get into the car. Also close by was a church with a basketball goal so our son was able to shoot hoops. Thank you again - we will be back!

Home sweet home!!

  • 5 of 5

The Fred Haus is absolutely wonderful. A true step back in time, with all the necessary modern conveniences. Fred & Darla have painstakingly restored this lovely home back to its original beauty. They make certain their guests have all they need to get started, and then some! In fact, we were there on Halloween and were surprised with Darla's delicious popcorn balls. Enjoy an evening by the backyard fire pit, or sit on the front porch rockers with a cup of coffee in the morning. The home is literally 2 blocks from Main Street, which is good, because there are so many great places to eat, you need the walk back to house. If you need to "de-stress", this is the place! We look forward to going back to the Fred Haus soon!!
