Das Tejas is a 2002 timber and stone home built with the historic styling of an late 1800's German pioneer home. We have been the proud owners of this lovely home since 2014.

The large master bedroom is located downstairs off the comfortable living room, and includes an on suite bathroom with recently remodeled walk-in shower and two separate sinks. Guests will appreciate the convenience of an additional half bath, also recently remodeled with double sink and make-up station, along with a super fast download internet connection. The fully equipped kitchen allows for the preparation of a nice family meal when not taking advantage of one of the fine Fredericksburg restaurants within walking distance. The dining area opens up to the kitchen and boasts a table that will accommodate guest seating to six. This area is a perfect location for after dinner games and puzzles found in the home. There is a second private bedroom on the second level, along with a *(semi-private) sleeping loft/television lounge, and an additional bathroom. Covered patios and around the home and a large stone patio in the back allow for relaxation, with private hot tub. Enjoy star gazing around the recently added fire-pit.This home is best used for up to two couples wanting their own private spaces, or a family/friends group of up to six.

About Missy Shelton

Hello, our names are Brice and Missy and we have recently moved to Fredericksburg, Texas. Now empty-nesters, we are enjoying the Hill Country and al it has to offer. Brice enjoys cycling and occasionally, I will join him (new tandem). I enjoy quilting and this area has a few amazing shops. I'm also a real estate agent, so just ask if you have any interest in seeing something during your stay.

Missy Shelton purchased this house in 2014

Why Missy Shelton chose Texas Hill Country

We had been looking to purchase a home in Gillespie County for several years and were so excited to purchase this home this August of 2014. We have now met our goal of moving to the area after Brice retired in late 2015. This is truly our dream come true and we are looking forward to sharing it with you.

What makes this house unique

The greatest benefit of this home is the fantastic location. In addition to that, this home has all the benefits of a modern home, while maintaining the feel of an early pioneer home. Communal spaces, both inside and on the back patio, make this an exceptional home for small gatherings of family and friends, up to six total guests.

Great place to stay

We really enjoyed our stay. The farm house is amazing. Everything was taken care of and we loved using the fire pit. We would stay here again, no question.

We are four women cousins who took a family girls' weekend in Fredericksburg and we loved our time at Das Tejas. This home was immaculately clean, we were given wonderful snacks, breakfast food including sausage, eggs, hash browns, milk and orange juice, and a most delicious peach coffee cake. There was nothing we needed and the owner was available at all times if we needed anything. The bedding was so comfortable, bathrooms were well-equipped, the kitchen was totally stocked with all types of glass-ware and dishes, there is a hot-tub on the patio, a grill and a fire-pit. This property is wonderful and we look forward to renting again in the future. Thank you, Missy, for making us comfortable and providing us with everything we could have wanted.

This is a perfect house, great location, and wonderful hosts. Missy and Brice were terrific and easy to work with. Plenty of room for our family and a great space out back for quiet family evenings.

Great place to stay for our couples weekend!

  • 5 of 5

This house is in top condition! The property is kept up with extremely well. The backyard has a nice area to hang out and the hot tub was clean and ready to use. It's within walking distance of all the shops and restaurants in town, so we didn't have to drive anywhere. The owner also left us several breakfast items and snacks. We would definitely stay here again. Loved it!

Das Tejas was perfect for a girl's getaway. The house is charming with great attention to every detail. Convenient location, but also quiet and private. The back patio was a beautiful & relaxing spot. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will stay here again on a future visit to Fredericksburg.
