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.

Beautiful place to stay.

Loved the country feel to this stay. Close enough to local hot spots but far enough to feel like you've gotten away from it all.

The place was clean and comfortable. I think there may be a mouse or rat in the wall behind the bed, we heard lots of scratching and squealing during the night.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the quick heads up! Apparently a squirrel or mouse was trying to find lodging during the cold snap. We got a machine that makes noises that offends a variety of animals. Since your night there has not been a problem.

Place was clean and cute. Owner was polite and accommodating. Best part is it is within walking distance of Main Street. We walked North Adams street because it had very little traffic and takes you to the market square which is perfectly in the middle of Main Street.

Old Charm Barn Cabin in Fredericksburg

  • 4 of 5

We stayed in this wonderful little cabin on a trip to Fredericksburg. It's tucked away on a back lot with a great yard all around it. The floor plan is open and there's a private patio in the front. There's a small kitchen (microwave, fridge, and sink). We went to wind down for a few days and this quiet 'old barn' charm was just the thing!!
