We had a great time in this old cabin. The history of the place is very interesting and the location is awesome. We had deer in the yard each day, saw wild turkeys walk by, and a herd of cows greeted us in the morning. We will be back next year.

would need to be painted before it could be condemned......furnished with early garage sale.....animals were cute.
Could be a wonderful property if they just kept up on the maintenance and cleaned it !
This is a wonderful house in the country . So much potential , but I was so very disappointed . Right off when we arrived we had issues . The upstairs room is only acessable from the outside stairs . Not a problem at all. However , they did not leave us a key to be able to access the room. I called the number , said we couldn’t get into the bedroom . This was their response . “ How many people are staying there ? I said , 2. They said , and you need both rooms ? I said , yes ! “ Really ????? I booked a place with 2 bedrooms because I needed 2 rooms . They said , it will take at least 30 minutes for them to bring a key. Not a good start . Then we start to notice how very dirty this house was. The floors were filthy , there was dirt on the couch , the frig was dirty , there was old moldy coffee grounds in the coffee maker, the microwave was stick and dirty. They advertise a whirlpool tub . Hmmmm, couldn’t even get enough hot water to barely cover the jets , let alone fill the tub. The jets don’t work, the faucet is broken . So very dissspointed . I sent an email to the property manager Friday night . I got no response until Monday . Again, dissspointed . Will never stay or refer friends to this property .
Great place with a great view
We stayed there for 2 nights and had a great stay. The cabin was clean and cozy. We watched deer, turkey, and jackrabbits play in the pasture every morning and evening. Before renting one review concerned us a bit regarding being so close to the road. I will address this. It is close to the road, but this is a dead end road with only 3 houses past the cabin so traffic was minimal at most. Being close to the road allowed for lots of hiking with the chance to see the wildlife up close. We have stayed in Fredericksburg the last 4 years for our anniversary and this cabin has been our favorite.
Really cool get away
We enjoyed staying in the cabin. We had no troubles at all. I took some great star pictures.
Great charming little cabin!
Great little historical place and mostly as described. Cabin is right off the side of the neighborhood road, while I imagined it as tucked away in the middle of the 160 acres mentioned, but otherwise it’s still away from it all and a perfectly convenient, charming base for exploration of Fredericksburg and the hill country. And we really appreciated the history of the place. Reservation, check in, check out and communication was good and as expected from a VRBO host. We loved it!
