Featured on HGTV, Abby's Guesthouse + Pool is one of Fredericksburg's best. Decorated by the buyer for one of the state's chicest vintage-modern home decor stores, Abby's melds the French seaside with modern and vintage design for the perfect calming getaway for two. Just one block off of Main Street in Fredericksburg's Historic District, Abby's offers a luxurious king sized bed, a shower for two and your own living room suite complete with a romantic fireplace. Abby's kitchenette is equipped with a coffee maker microwave, small refrigerator, dishware, coffee supplies and a table for two. Relax on Abby's ample front porch with fresh peaches or local wine you might purchase while in Fredericksburg. Abby's pool and lounge chairs are yours for days of lounging and revitalizing.
Whether you are in Fredericksburg to enjoy a wine tour or tasting, to shop Main Street, climb Enchanted Rock or just get away from it all beside a quiet pool, Abby's is the perfect place to put your feet up and let your mind wander. There are bike shops in the area, if you have an itch for adventure. If you're looking for revitalization, there are spas, as well as yoga and pilate offerings that I would be happy to recommend.

Make yourself a home away from home at Abby's: the cottage + pool are ready to welcome you!
An interior design lover at heart, I am the buyer for red: modern lines . vintage finds, on Main Street in Fredericksburg. I am the mother of two girls, now grown women, who are my delight and I spend most of my days looking for the best in modern and vintage home decor. Abby's is inspired by a trip I took with my daughters to Southern France in 1998 - I brought back a love for cool calming colors and seaside inspiration with a vintage-modern twist. I hope you enjoy Abby's as much as I have!

I was drawn to Fredericksburg after my parents purchased a home from the town's early founding. After tiring of cold winters in the Midwest, the charm of Fredericksburg, the sunny days and beautiful green Hill Country won me over. I decided to move to the area with my girls and work on a home of my own.
The blue bonnets and wildflowers each spring, coupled with fresh peaches from the local orchards and now the emerging wine country make this a beautiful place to live. Octoberfest and other seasonal festivals bring life to this small town, as does our vibrant Main Street. One hour from both Austin and San Antonio, I can hop in the car whenever I need to feel the city. For so many reasons, I feel lucky to call Fredericksburg home.
When I bought my home, right next door to Abby's, I was charmed by the surrounding homes and the proximity to the heart of Fredericksburg. Many of the homes around Abby's were built over 100 years ago, and my dear neighbors are constantly gardening and maintaining them. Once I fell in love with the ample porch and vintage feel of my home, I immediately started to renovate - adding a pool in the backyard as soon as the spring came and building the limestone cabin that is now Abby's to share with friends and guests alike. I hope you'll make it your home away from home - a respite any time you want to get away from it all.

This is our second stay at Abby's and it absolutely not be the last ! This is our go-to place for complete rest and relaxation in the Hill Country. You have a lovely, well-appointed cabin and a pool for your use. You do not have to get up earlier than you would like to have breakfast as you would at a bed and breakfast. We love to bring our few things for breakfast and snacks, allowing us to visit many of the fantastic restaurants in the area with minimal guilt, caloric or otherwise! We have told some friends about Abby's and they feel the same way that we do. It's not too far from town but just far enough away to give you that sit-on-the-front-porch feeling the entire visit. Perfect romantic, restful getaway!!
Peaceful Pinterest retreat a hefty walk from town but just right for fit folks. Darling and comfortable and far enough from the action to star gaze! Porch sitting and fireplace a plus! A fire pit out back by the pool is the only perk that could improve this property. Truly Home Away!
The cottage is perfect for two people. It is located close enough to downtown to be in walking distance.
We cozied up by the fire, lounged on the couch, were VERY comfortable on the King Size mattress, and felt safe and "at home" all weekend in Fredericksburg. Close enough to the action to not need a long drive, but far enough off that we weren't fighting bar-noise to sleep! Only note of imperfection: We bought a bunch of food assuming we could cook dinner one night, but there is only a microwave, no stove/oven. Probably missed that in the description initially, but was a bit of a bummer. Otherwise, great time!!!
House was great with plenty of room for 2. Separate bedroom from living room was a plus. Shower is awesome. Why no 5 star was bed. For my wife and me, bed was too hard and hurt 1st night. We slept on comforter which helped alot.
Located in the heart of Fredericksburg's historic district, Abby's is close to everything. Spend the day on an area wine tour, or shopping the stores of Main Street. Hike Enchanted Rock, or rent bikes from the local bike shop for a day of adventure through the Hill Country. Located within 1 mile of any of the local restaurants, enjoy dinner out and return to the pool in your backyard for an evening dip.
