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.

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.

Cozy in Fredricksburg

  • 5 of 5

The property was more than we hoped for. The decorations and furnishings were quaint, vintage and homey. The back yard was delightful and a bird watcher's paradise. The owners made us feel welcome with fresh flowers, candy and wine and were available to answer any questions and make recommendations for sightseeing. We loved our stay!!!

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!
