About the property

Romantic, Special Getaway In The Hill Country Of Fredericksburg,Texas.

Quiet, quaint, green & lush surroundings. Long considered a sought After property, as a charming hideaway that is amazingly in the heart & center of Main Street's exciting shopping, restaurants, live music, museums, etc. Literally only steps from the hub bub of it all. Romantic one bedroom, one bath with a vintage claw foot tub. Designed & handcrafted by the owners, as well as some furniture. Wood burning fireplace makes a cozy nest with the TV in the sitting area. There is a full kitchen. The front porch has been enjoyed to sit and gaze out on the courtyard and fountain. Overall a special hideaway for couples to remember.

Best kept secret in Fredericksburg!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had a wonderful stay at the Ansiley House! The house was very clean, had all the amenities we needed and close to Main Street (we parked the car and walked everywhere). Upon arrival, there were fresh flowers on the table and bottled water in the fridge. The house is a great romantic weekend getaway! The owners dinner recommendation for The Nest was perfect! We will definitely stay here again.

I wish I would have known that there were not any basic toiletries provided, i.e. shampoo & conditioner; however this was not a big deal because HEB (local grocery store) was just a couple of blocks away. The only recommendation I would have is to provide a couple of additional sleeping pillows and it would have been nice if the small yard & porch area were a little more manicured. The Spring season in TX is short and we like to spend as much time outside as we can; having pollen cleaned up a bit on the porch furniture and the grass trimmed would have been the been the finishing touch.

Thank you for sharing your lovely home with us!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your lovely description of your stay. It is wonderful for viewers to read. Thank you. I provide all necessities, except Shampoo & conditioner , because they can cause chemical reactions. We have a natural look popular in Fredericksburg for living, however you visited when the mower & weed eater both were being repaired. That part was not the norm.

Fabulous little jewel

  • 5 of 5

This little jewel is well worth the visit. It was cozy, charming and comfortable.

I used the fireplace both morning and night, sitting across with a good book.

The claw foot tub was great for relaxing. I ran out of hot water too soon, the only complaint. I miss the sound of the fountain. Linda

Great cozy house for the weekend!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed here for the weekend and absolutely loved it. It's walking distance to all the shopping and dining. The owner was very nice and supplied is with fire wood each night and checked on us several times throughout the weekend to see if we needed anything. We would definitely book here again.

The town is beautiful! We loved everything about it. The house is a nice antique house. The fire place was perfect. The only problem I would say about the house is... if you are renting the house for the tub, the hot water heater isn’t going to help you out! It may have filled up 1/3 of the way and there was no hot water! You definitely don’t take long shower. There is no internet like it is advertised. She leaves a note telling you to turn your data on. No Network name or wi-fi password even available. The tv didn’t work and she to me “it was a amenity that she pays for and likes to have but right now she don’t have it”

I know we were on vacation but when the weather is freezing and you just want to sit by a fire that would have been nice!
