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!

Very peaceful, beautiful place, just like the pictures

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was wonderful, a real home away from home with all the amenities to make your stay extremely comfortable. The breakfast was fantastic! The bed was very comfortable and we greatly enjoyed the cool nights by a campfire. The cabin was close to everything yet far enough away to enjoy peaceful evenings. Definitely recommend to anyone looking for a weekend getaway. We will definately be returning!

Fantastic weekend! Finding the property on Home Away-poor

  • 5 of 5

We were referred to The Nest by friends. It was everything we expected - easy access, very private, great food and even better hospitality by the new owners. A+++. Will do again if we can figure out how to make another reservation.

We were unable to find this property using the on line services. Were only able to find this property because we knew exactly where we wanted to stay, and then required contacting the owners directly and asking for the property number. I’m blown away that I can search on line and find B&B throughout Fredericksburg, and The Nest is not findable. Very frustrating that I had to work so hard to make a reservation here. Really upset that I had to pay a fee to Home Away for services that I had to essentially perform myself. Feels like Home Away owes me a refund of the fee that I paid to them, and the owners should be livid that Home Away makes it impossible to book The Nest via the normal on line services.

Again, great experience once we got there.

King & Queen of Hospitality!

  • 5 of 5

Bill and Ida know what we are all looking for...a great bed and a great breakfast in a peaceful setting! All offered with the luxury country decor! We enjoyed our time of serenity at the Nest as well as the short commute to town for shopping and sightseeing. Breakfast was delicious, beautifully presented and timely each morning. Too bad Ida doesn't offer lunch and dinner! Beautiful place with the best hosts'. Note: the Nest is next to the other cabin, the Roost. It was occupied and never heard or saw them at all! Felt like we were the only ones there! We love this place!
