About the property

3 Guesthouses with privacy and great views. Great for couples, or larger groups!

Freshly built, Outlot 201 Guest Houses offer relaxing hill country views less than five minutes from Fredericksburg's historic Main Street. Nestled in a grove of trees, the guest houses are the perfect place to retreat in a refined, yet relaxed, setting. The three houses at Outlot 201 include:

House 1 (Parker House, property no. 3961685)

House 2 (Pfiester House, property no. 3961691)

House 3 (Smith House, property no. 3961692)

Outlot 201 (group listing: to book all three, property no. 4018349)

Smith House at Outlot 201 features two bedrooms, each with a comfy, king size pencil post bed with luxury linens and plenty of pillows. The bedrooms are also equipped with DOHM White Noise Machines, for those who are serious about their sleep! The bathroom is spacious and brightly lit, with a double vanity and large walk-in shower which includes a relaxing rain shower overhead. The bath includes a toilet closet for additional privacy.

You’ll find the separate living area a comfortable place to relax, with a flat screen television and free flowing Wi-Fi. The area also includes a small dining table and well-equipped (armoire) butler's pantry, with a microwave, refrigerator, sink, and electric tea kettle, as well as a Bunn coffee maker to brew locally roasted coffees from our friends at Ranch Road Roasters.

Upon arrival, you're pantry will be stocked with homemade quick breads and granola, fresh fruit, yogurt, milk, juice and bottled water. You'll also find plenty of coffee and tea on hand.

Out the back door, you'll find a spacious outdoor living space overlooking the pasture, with our horse and sheep grazing in the distance. French doors lead to a charming alcove with a table perfect for dining or late night card games. Just down the steps, you'll find a clean-burning fire pit surrounded by cozy chairs on the patio -- the perfect spot after a long day of shopping or wine tasting!

Smith House has everything you need to make your stay comfortable, including Thymes toiletries, a hair dryer, iron and ironing board.

If you're interested in booking more than one house and would like to expedite the booking process, please feel free to contact the owner directly so we can block the houses for you and arrange for one payment to save you time.

We welcome children, with the simple request that they don't roam too far from your sight. We are not able to allow pets due to the livestock and other animals on the property. And lastly, Outlot 201 is a non-smoking property and we very much appreciate your support of our commitment to a smoke-free environment for our guests.

About Darla + Mike Smith

We are Mike and Darla Smith, and we live nearby in the property's 50's farm house. Both of our families live in and around Fredericksburg, and we feel incredibly blessed to call this place home! We have four children -- three grown kids and a fun little four year old who has been a champ as we've built these guest houses!

Darla + Mike Smith purchased this cottage in 1999

Why Darla + Mike Smith chose Texas Hill Country

Mike bought the property in 1999 from the Pfiester family, who were one of the original German families to settle Fredericksburg. As families arrived to the area in the mid-1800s, the German Emigration Company gave them a "townlot" and an "outlot" (just outside of town) which they could farm. As you've probably guessed, our property was Outlot 201. Mike was lured by the property's tranquil setting and convenient access to town. He also loved that the property was still surrounded by other member's the Pfiester family.

In January 2010, we were married; and that December, we welcomed our young son, Parker (Darla's maiden name). Though Darla had a charming 1920's cottage in town, there was no question that this was going to be our home -- we both loved it so much.

When we decided to add the guest houses, we knew we wanted to celebrate all of the families who've enjoyed living on Outlot 201 through the years. So, each house has been named accordingly -- Pfiester, Smith and Parker!

What makes this cottage unique

Every day, we feel thankful to live in Fredericksburg. It truly is a charmed life, and we know we are blessed to call this place home. Over the years, we've loved sharing our home with family and friends, largely because the property offers such a pretty pastoral setting. We love how we feel a world away from it all -- yet we can hit the bank, the post office AND pick up a gallon of milk, then be back home in 20 minutes :-)! We felt visitors to the guest houses would really appreciate having the best of both worlds as well -- a quiet, country setting just minutes away from all Fredericksburg has to offer.

Wonderful property & lovely hosts!

  • 5 of 5

We rented the Smith house for my 30th birthday and had an amazing time! The house was beautiful with lots of great details. You can tell a lot of heart and soul went into designing the guest houses. Mike and Darla were wonderful hosts - and the homemade bread was amazing! We would definitely stay again and will recommend this property to our friends!

Beautiful and relaxing

  • 5 of 5

This is our second stay at the cabins - it will not be our last. We love that the cabins are close to town but far enough away to feel like you are in the country and can relax. Nights spent in the quiet, reading around the fire pit with family cannot be beat! Darla spoils you with delicious homemade granola and breads for breakfast.

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

The Smith House was a perfect country Christmas getaway. From the moment we drove up from the street, front porch lights on with a sweet Christmas greeting of fresh green wreaths and trees, to the delicious fresh baked breads and drinks in the fridge and fresh fruit on the table. Our kids loved having space to run and explore, and petting the neighbor's horse was icing on the cake. The beds were SO comfortable, even our kids slept in each morning. Darla, thank you for this cute Outlot; we are so glad we stayed here. We will be back!!

Wish you guys could see all the new lambs born since Christmas. We got to cuddle a newborn over the weekend...so sweet! Hope to see y'all again soon. Many thanks! Darla
