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 Fredericksburg

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 cozy and relaxing!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for a very memorable stay in Fredericksburg! We really enjoyed our stay at Yo Haus! The sisters and I try to do something different for sisters weekend every year, but this has risen to the top of the list of things we would do again! Thank you Stuart and Debbie for making the stay comfortable, safe, and memorable! We loved sitting in the living room, or the screened in porch or around the table playing games and just relaxing and of course talking into the wee hours! We hope to visit again!

  • 5 of 5

This is a great home for a girls get away weekend! It is cute and quaint. Debbie made sure we had everything we needed and was accommodating to our requests. The house was clean, warm and about a mile from downtown. Had it not been in the teens outside, we would have walked to town. Since Uber is up and running, we used Uber to get to the wine shuttle (about $6.00 one way). We would definitely stay here again!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much, Holly, for that kind review! It was a pleasure having you as a guest--thank you so much for taking such good care of the Yo Haus during your stay! And thanks for the information on Uber and cost. Guests have inquired about Uber before and now I have some information for them. Please come visit again and thank you. Best regards, Debbie and Stuart

Perfect Pre-Christmas Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We loved YoHaus! Every detail was perfect, we couldn’t have asked for a more inviting place to stay during our trip to Fredericksburg. The house is immaculately maintained and so cozy! It also has the most comfortable beds and such a great backyard-we loved being able to use the hot tub. Thank you again, Debbie, we had a wonderful time!

Clean nice location

  • 4 of 5

Great beds and sheets! Good location. Eclectic country charm. No cooktop vent (no frying allowed). Also note said to only use dryer, not washer. Recommend hanging some hooks in bathroom.

Owner's Response: We are very sorry your stay was not up to your expectations. We strive very hard to provide a 5 star stay for all of our visitors and are very disappointed when that goal is not met. Our washer has a loud spin cycle which might scare some people so we thought it better not to offer. And to be fair, for that reason, we do not list the washer as an amenity. Also, we do not have a vent in the kitchen for frying/broiling and we clearly state that in our description to forwarn any guests who might want to do that during their stay. We were suprised at your comment regarding extra hooks as the bathroom has two towel bars and a double hook on the door. But perhaps we may need to add more.
