Texas Hill Country Barn Rental Photos and Description

Guest Quarters, 1 Bedroom/1 Bath (sleeps 4)

Located only 7 miles from downtown Fredericksburg in the heart of the Texas Hill Country and Wine Country makes this the perfect place to get away, relax, or to enjoy all that Fredericksburg has to offer. The Guest Quarters were constructed inside of a large country barn overlooking Bear Creek on 33 acres.

Creekside was beautifully constructed and decorated in Texas Hill Country charm, antiques, and stained concrete floors. A large wood burning stone fireplace with a 40” HD flat screen is the focal point in the spacious living/dining area. This room has attention to detail with a vaulted ceiling constructed from long leaf pine reclaimed from a 1920’s German Homestead in addition to the custom cabinetry throughout. The kitchen has granite counter tops and is fully equipped with full size appliances, pot/pans, dishes. The bedroom also has a vaulted ceiling and is very cozy and quiet for a good night’s sleep on the luxury queen size mattress high thread count sheets. The bathroom is very spacious with a large walk in shower.

Outside, there is plenty of outdoor lighting and the huge pergola offers a place to relax, dine, or enjoy views of the Hill Country. In addition, there is also a wood burning stone fire pit with plenty of comfortable seating to break the winter chill to enjoy family/friends. The yard is beautifully landscaped with Texas native plants to attract butterflies and hummers. Be sure to explore the property to enjoy the abundant wildlife and song birds. You can also beat the heat by taking a short hike to the “swimming hole” for a dip in the clear waters of Bear Creek (during non-drought conditions).

Creekside Barn Located On Bear Creek Just Minutes From Fredericksburg

Breath taking, stunning and a little slice of heaven on earth

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful little retreat is minutes from Fredericksburg, TX but far enough in the hill country to be wonderfully secluded and peaceful. On our stay we saw many dear, scores of hummingbirds and turkeys! Our plan had been to spend must of our time in Fredericksburg but this gorgeous place lured us to simply stay and enjoy the beautiful surroundings. The owners are wonderful, lovely people and the cottage is absolutely stunning! You will not be disappointed!

A beautiful and quiet place to stay.

  • 5 of 5

A very peaceful place to stay for the weekend. The interior was clean with everything you might need for your stay, and the exterior landscaping was well thought out. A quiet place to enjoy nature and the company you are with.

Texas At It's Best

  • 5 of 5

Arriving on the property of Creekside Barn we knew right away we had chosen well. Located beside a lovely creek filled with fish and turtles, surrounded by birds of all kinds feeding right outside the door of the converted barn, it was the perfect setting for our Texas adventure. The fields on the front side of the property and the woods on the backside brought wild deer practically to our door as they came to graze in the early morning and again at dusk. The patio area is perfect for a meal or just to sit, relax and take in the surroundings. The beauty of the outside was matched by the lovely and very comfortable inside. Immaculately clean, wonderfully decorated, and stocked with everything to make it feel like home, this one bed/bath, full kitchen was perfect for the three of us. No description can do Creekside Barn on Bear Creek the justice it deserves. Shirley and Wayne, the owners, go above and beyond to make sure everything is perfect..including fresh baked banana bread waiting in the kitchen on our arrival. The location of Creekside Barn was perfect for getting to all the places we had planned to visit. Five nights was not enough, next stay will be longer!

Quiet, Clean, Fully Equipped,Perfect!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay here. Enjoyed sitting under the Pergola until dark each night...VERY peaceful. This place is far enough out to be quiet but, only a few minutes to town. It is FULLY stocked with everything you need. If a spice cabinet has "Slap Ya Mama" (my favorite spice) in it you know they have it all����. If you are looking for a place to get away from it all go here. You won't regret it.

A Beautiful Stay

  • 5 of 5

This was my second time at Creekside Barn and, just like the first, it was an amazing time. The environment is so welcoming and relaxing. The scenery is just beautiful; the creek, the fish, the birds... I couldn't tell you in a short review how much my husband and I treasured the time we shared together here. We recharged our minds and bodies by just taking it easy creekside. We only made it into Fredericksburg (main street) once, we didn't want to leave Creekside. I will continue to visit as often as our hectic lives allow. Sherry is a spectacular hostess!

Perfect Hill Country Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Creekside Barn is the perfect spot for a weekend trip to Fredericksburg. The barn is an easy (and scenic) 10 minute drive from Fredricksburg and the property could not be lovelier. The creek and nearby cows make for a perfect setting and the renovated barn itself is cozy and welcoming. Shirley has stocked the kitchen with all the essentials and the bedroom and bath are spacious, clean, and beautifully decorated. I strongly recommend this property for a romantic getaway, girls' weekend, or other special occasion!
