About Stuart and Debbie Bradford

We are long-time Austin residents and have always enjoyed visiting Fredericksburg. We purchase Yo Haus in 2014.

Stuart and Debbie Bradford purchased this cottage in 2014

Why Stuart and Debbie Bradford chose Texas Hill Country

Yo Haus is named for Debbie's parents, Girlie and Spike Yosten, who were of German and Polish heritage and lived their entire lives in the North Texas German town of Muenster. The house is sprinkled with photos and mementos from their life together, along with a few Yosten pieces. The front bedroom is nicknamed "Uncle Al's room" as the bedroom set came from Al and Dorothy Yosten. A picture of Uncle Al, at 99 years of age in his western chaps, sits on the vanity.

What makes this cottage unique

When we first drove up to the house we were immediately in love with the location. Yo Haus sits on the edge of the Historic Distric , perfect for walking through the old neighborhoods and to the Market Platz , but not so close that the peacefulness is disrupted by the downtown. The previous owners had recently restored the inside and it was all just to our liking and taste. We were so taken with this lovely little place that we decided on the spot this was the vacation house for us.

very cute house

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at Yo Haus! It was cozy, quaint, and clean. Perfect location, close to everything, but far enough away to be quiet. Don't plan to do too much cooking, which you don't need to anyway because there are so many good restaurants nearby. The directions for everything were very clear and you can really tell how much the host cares - from the welcome basket, to the robes for the hot tub, to answering any questions we had. We loved the clawfoot tub too!

Beautiful, warm home and gracious owner!

  • 5 of 5

My sister and I took our mom here for a birthday girls weekend. Debbie was so lovely to work with! She left a special birthday basket with wine and chocolate and wrote "Happy 70th birthday, Mom!" with letters on the fridge. I cannot tell you how special that made our mom feel.

This house is beautifully furnished, clean and lovely. The pictures do not do it justice. We all slept great on the comfy beds. We could not get over all the little touches that made it feel warm and welcoming. The screened in porch was heavenly. The backyard was WONDERFUL. So many beautiful flowers and plants, bird feeders and decorative touches. Obviously created and cared for by a garden loving person. We enjoyed all the birds that visited and just enjoyed being out there as an extension of the living space.

I cannot recommend this home and this owner more highly. Truly the highlight of our visit to Fredericksburg.
