About Steve Wood

Glenda and I were both raised in West Texas. We joined the corporate world and made our way through Pueblo, Co; Midland, TX; then on to the Austin area where we both recently retired.

Through many a visit, we found Fredericksburg an oasis of good, ole fashioned, small town living in the heart of our beloved Texas.

We had often thought of owning a small B&B as it seems we always had people at our home with Glenda feeding the neighborhood. Sharing Glenda’s creative and fantastic cooking with our guests just seemed to be the natural progression of our lives. Getting back closer to nature, raising chickens, enjoying “the farm”, having deer and longhorns for neighbors, and hosting our two quaint cabins has become a dream come true for both of us.

We hope you come visit and enjoy our Cabins Out Back as much as we do.

Steve Wood purchased this cabin in 2017

Why Steve Wood chose Fredericksburg

The Cabins Out Back are the consummate get-away location. Near to downtown, but far enough out to truly be in the country.

The Stars at Night are Big and Bright, Deep in the Heart of Texas! This certainly rings true at the Nest and the Roost where the dark skies, wide open places, and quite pastures resonate peace and tranquility. Come join us for a restful weekend, great breakfast, and fun visit to Fredericksburg in the hill country.

Perfect Place

  • 5 of 5

We loved the cabins, the chickens & the breakfasts. The owners are very friendly & let my daughter feed the chickens. The cabin was a nice space for a couple & 1 child. The breakfasts are amazing with fresh squeezed orange juice & their chicken eggs. We were lucky enough to have their angel biscuits 2 times during our 4 night stay. #musthavebiscuits

A Wonderful Recharge

  • 5 of 5

Spent 2 nights in our wonderful cabin, The Roost, at the Cabins Out Back. The location was perfect—out a ways from Fredericksburg in the peace and quiet of the country. We saw deer, plenty of birds, and of course, the owners’ free-roaming chickens that greeted us each morning. It was a short drive to town, and we appreciated not being in the middle of traffic and humanity during Spring Break. Steve and Glenda greeted us and quickly showed us our cabin which was both cozy and comfortable. My 15 year old son loved the loft for sleeping and reading. We both loved the screened back porch where we ate our AMAZING home-made breakfasts: French toast, fresh eggs, freshly-squeezed orange juice, biscuits, bacon, sausage, potatoes, and more. The cabin had a Keurig and a selection of coffees. The small kitchen had all we needed but know that there is not a stove. Visit Fredericksburg for your other meals. The cabin also contains a comfy sitting room with leather couch and chair for reading/visiting and bath with shower. The downstairs bed is a king (comfortable) and a flat screen television. My son and I spent our time just hanging—on the porches, watching the wildlife, or reading. I highly recommended Cabins Out Back if you enjoy peace, quiet, and delicious breakfasts.

Absolutely charming!!

  • 5 of 5

Steve & Glenda make you feel very welcomed upon arrival. The Roost cabin is a quaint little cabin, peaceful and relaxing. About 5 mins from Main St and away from the hustle and bustle. The breakfast that arrives each morning is amazing! Definitely will be going back!

Amazing country spot minutes from town!

  • 5 of 5

My husband & I have traveled to Fredericksburg for nearly 9 years, and this was one of our favorite trips, largely due to the Cabins Out Back! Steve & Glenda were wonderful hosts, even before the amazing hot breakfast delivered to our door. The only thing better than the breakfast on day 1, was the breakfast on day 2!! The cabin was comfortable, quaint, and in full view of roaming chickens & deer, but still only minutes from all the wonderful Fredericksburg shops, restaurants, & wine destinations we have grown to love. It will be difficult to ever stay anywhere else on FBG!

Cleverly designed Texas cabin

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here for a Fredericksburg weekend and loved it. This beautiful cabin makes efficient use of space and its owners are models of Texas hospitality. The hot breakfasts are delivered to you each morning by golf cart, there are deer hopping in the field in the evenings, friendly chickens in the morning, and rustic Texas views all around. Really couldn’t ask for more. Excellent home away!

Beautiful, Peaceful, and quiet, highly recommended

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed over the New Years weekend, and we loved it. Steve and Glenda were great hosts, and the property is peaceful and very nicely decorated. We will definitely stay here again. Very close to town, yet far enough away to just get away.

Nearest Airport

Gillespie County
Car: recommended

Fredericksburg, Texas always has something going on in town. We have a Christmas Parade that is huge and it is at night!...Have to see it to believe it when you have live longhorn steers with lights on their horns being ridden down Main Street in December.

A favorite with lots of visitors is the winery tours, many folks opt to let someone else do the driving while they sit back and enjoy the day. Did you know that the Fredericksburg area is second in wineries only to Napa Valley, California?

If you like the outdoors and an occasional hike up a solid granite dome check out Enchanted Rock Park, beautiful views and a nice way to spend a day...only 17 miles from our cabins north on Hwy. 16.

Our two cabins are on the back of our property and we are only 5 miles from downtown FBG, so you can enjoy the activities in town or in the surrounding areas and come back home and enjoy the peace and quiet of 'The Cabins Out Back'.
