About Betsy or Sharon

I grew up in a historic home built in the 1840's. I love history. During my life I have restored several properties and fell in love with this one recently. Thank you for your part in funding the restoration of the front house. A number of years ago we moved to a ranch near Fredericksburg because it has the best of our favorite things. Quality of life, history, antiques, wineries, music, golf and a good airport. We are enjoying sharing this with new friends.

Why Betsy or Sharon chose Fredericksburg

If you want quiet but walking distance to town center action, a vacation from hectic electronic modern life but comfort and old west decor, you have found your vacation spot.

Lovely Getaway

  • 5 of 5

This property handily beats an overpriced hotel room! Includes small kitchenette area with microwave, mini fridge and coffee maker. Quiet and within walking distance to Main Street. We are definitely interested in visiting again. The hosts Betsy and Sharon are very friendly and accommodating. Nice little sitting porch as well.

I left some clothing behind as we rushed out the door to get to a Christmas party. They texted me to let me know and shipped them back to us. 100%

Super cute and cozy place.

  • 5 of 5

This place was perfect for a weekend. It was cute and quiet. The bed was amazingly comfortable. Location was great and I would definitely pick this place again. Sharon was a great host and loved that they left little snacks and wine for us. You don't see that to often. Look forward to staying again.

wonderful stay!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at Smokehaus! We were close to all of the restaurants and shopping but tucked away so it was nice and quiet. Hosts were very communicative and helpful. Highly recommend.
