The Marschall Creek Gastehaus is a story and a half limestone home with the comfort and convenience of three bedrooms and 2 1/5 baths. You will enjoy coffee in the morning on the large wrap around porch and beautiful sunsets in the evening as you watch for deer in their natural habitat. Engage in friendly competition with the built in horseshoe pit in the backyard. Test your culinary skills on the outdoor charcoal grill. The master bathroom has a stand-up shower and a claw foot tub. If you decide to stay at the house and prepare your meals, the kitchen is fully stocked with pots, pans, dishes, cups, glasses and all kinds of utensils. The house is located on acreage in a quiet neighborhood. You can enjoy the hustle and bustle of the town of Fredericksburg and return home to the peace, relaxation and quiet of the house in the country. If your group has more than 7 guests, you can rent the garage apartment located directly behind the main house. The apartment will sleep 2 additional guests (one king sized bed). The apartment has a small kitchen, bathroom and washer and dryer.

My girlfriends and I could not have asked for a better place to get together, celebrate some birthdays, visit a few local wineries and just relax and enjoy each others company. The atmosphere inside and outside this home was perfect! We thoroughly enjoyed rocking on the front porch watching several deer grazing all around. Inside the beds were all very comfy, plenty of clean towels, inviting sofas in living room and the kitchen had everything we needed. Just a short drive out of Fredericksburg ~ we look forward to our next visit!!

Family getaway

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our visit over spring break. Plenty of room for 7, including grandparents and 3 tween/teenagers. Kids played football and horse shoes outside and brought our Bocce ball set. Loved watching the deer every morning and evening. Full kitchen was helpful, as we cooked most of our meals. Close enough to town for a quick drive in, but nice to be in out in the open!

Great getaway place just outside Fredricksburg.

  • 5 of 5

We loved being outside of town where the deer would come graze right in the front yard each morning. Where do you get to see that site everyday!? Good communication with Carolyn and well supplied kitchen.

Owner's Response: Your comments are greatly appreciated. A satisfied customer is our highest priority. Sitting on the large front porch watching the deer is one of our favorite things too.

Christmas parade weekend

  • 4 of 5

Enjoyed this house so much. It has plenty of room for 6 adults to sleep, eat and relax. Many places we have stayed comfortably slept 6, but there really was't much room to relax and visit. The full sized/stocked kitchen was perfect for us, as we prepared a couple of meals there. It had everything we needed.
