About the property

About Ida Y Patterson

My wife Ida and I relocated to Fredericksburg Texas from the Dallas area a little over three years ago and thoroughly enjoy living in the heart of the hill country.

Ida, is such a creative and fantastic cook and consummate hostess it was pre-determined we would have a B&B...or two.

I had worked in the printing industry over 30 years and saw the attrition in the business and decided to do a career change to real estate in 2007...not the best timing but another good life experience. Bought and sold some houses and rehabbed quite a few. Wanting to do something a bit more creative I decided to use my graphics background and try my hand at making signs and plaques thus was born, you will see some of the work around the property!

Ida Y Patterson purchased this cabin in 2012

Perfect Weekend

  • 5 of 5

This is the perfect getaway spot. Cabin is very well designed, decorated and comfortable. The porches are great to sit and enjoy the scenery. When your ready to go to town you are just a few short minutes away. The breakfast was delicious. We are already looking forward to our next trip so we can stay here again.

Quiet, beautiful, clean, peaceful

  • 5 of 5

We had an absolutely wonderful stay! It is so peaceful and beautiful here that you'd never guess you're under 10 minutes from Main St.! Ida was sweet and helpful, and the cabin was charming, clean, and everything we could have wanted. As everyone says, breakfast was amazing! Highly recommend for anyone wanting a nice cabin retreat. Best part? Don't forget to look up at night and see more stars than you can imagine without all of the city lights!

Absolutely Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had a wonderful time at The Roost! It was peaceful and relaxing, exactly what we needed. My favorite moments were spent on the back porch as the sun came up, watching the deer cross the pasture and listening to the sounds of nature. Ida's breakfasts were by far the best eating we did while in Fredricksburg. My husband and I joked that if we could've paid extra to eat every meal at Ida's table we would have! We definitely plan on returning but will take more time to spend at the cabin, as we enjoyed it even more than being in town. We would (and will) recommend this cabin to anyone!

Perfect Hill Country Get-A-Way

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at The Roost (one of the Cabins Out Back). The location was ideal - less than 10 minutes from Main Street in Fredericksburg. With the holiday week crowds in town, we were happy to have our cozy retreat. Our teenage daughter enjoyed the loft, so our family of three fit perfectly in the cabin. It was very nicely appointed and comfortable. The homemade breakfast each morning was outstanding. We loved watching the chickens as they pecked and ranged on the grounds around the cabin. Ida was kind enough to deliver our breakfast an hour and a half early on our departure day since we needed to leave for home early than anticipated. I can highly recommend this cabin if you are looking for a quiet location near the attractions of FBG.

Lovely cabin in peaceful serene setting.

  • 5 of 5

Owner goes out of her way to assure her guests are comfortable. The cabin is very thoughtfully designed with great use of small spaces. The furnishings and linens are very nice. The breakfasts are homemade and delicious... such an upgrade and nice touch vs. the standard "breakfast" of pastries left on a doorstep in the Fredericksburg area B&B's. The air conditioner wasn't working correctly and Ida quickly called in an AC company who fixed the problem without delay. I highly recommend the "Roost" at "The Cabins Out Back"

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'.
