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 Texas Hill Country

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!

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!

Absolutely the best vacation

  • 5 of 5

This was a perfect place and such a precious place. Bill & Ida are so wonderful - and I can't say enough about the wonderful breakfasts that were served everyday. This cabin is only 5 miles from town, but sitting on the porch, you will feel like its a million miles away. If you want to escape from it all, this is the place for you. The cabin provides all you will need: towels, hair dryer, toilet paper, comfy bed and a small kitchenette. But when you want to go into town and take in some of the fun, its a short drive to it all. The wine tours are excellent and the crossroads saloon is the place to be in the evening, if you like country music and dancing. Such a wonderful place - we will be back again and again. Thanks Bill and Ida for a wonderful and memorable vacation. We have missed you and the sweet chickens everyday since we left - LOL.

Get Away Weekend

  • 4 of 5

We booked this little cabin at last minute, the owners were wonderful to work with. Nice location not too far from town at all. The cabin was really cute and had all the amenities we needed. The homemade breakfasts were delicious and delivered right to the cabin, an extra special touch. We loved the chickens, as we called them "the girls" and even named a few while having our coffee and visiting with them. The only thing I can recommend is some instructions for the TV for those less technically inclined (like me).

Beautiful cabin in the country yet close to town!

  • 5 of 5

We just got back from our vacation at the nest. Words can't even begin to describe how amazing the place was! It's set out in the country yet super close to downtown. We would open the door and the chickens would come running to greet us. They were so friendly and fun to watch. We saw lightening bugs, deer, sheep and the dog greeter who was so sweet! The cabin is perfectly size and the jetted tub works wonders after a long hike at enchanted rock. The place is very clean and very well kept. The breakfast was phenomenal!! Everything made from scratch and just as wonderful as every review describes! Ida was a gracious host and we can't wait to come back to the Nest! Thank you for the stay. It was so pleasant and exactly what we needed!

Scenery and sounds of the country

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved The Nest and can't imagine staying anywhere else around Fredericksburg. If you like the sounds of country breezes, birds, sheep, cows and chickens all looking over a beautiful country setting this is the place for you. The cabin looks rustic to fit the country setting but is very modern on the inside. The porch has wonderful rocking chairs to take it all in. Add to this a wonderful host and less than 10 minutes to downtown Fredericksburg with all it has to offer and you got it all. We will definitely be back.

Can't Wait to Go BACK!

  • 5 of 5

Ida's B&B is the BEST there is! Her breakfast spreads are unique and scrumptious and mattress softer than I've every enjoyed. The property is beautiful, close to town, yet still secluded enough to view every star in the sky at night! It's not only picture perfect, but she clearly thought of everything and we truly can't wait to Go BACK Again & Again!!!
