About the property

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).

Wife's 75th. Birthday Getaway

  • 5 of 5
Verified Stay

It was my desire to take my wife to a quite and peaceful country setting with complete amenities. We were delighted to find this barn dominium was the perfect fit for a peaceful 75th celebration of my wife's birthday. Shirley and Wayne were gracious host and made us feel the warmth of their welcome. The abundance of wild life and the scenic location over looking the creek was a nature lovers dream. As mentioned in other reviews, Shirley's cookies were tasty to the palate and the kitchen had everything you could ask for in long term or short term stays. We will return and we highly recommend this beautiful lodging.

I surprised my wife for her 40th birthday with a trip to Fredericksburg. If you're not staying at Creekside Barn then you're cutting yourself short. What an amazing little cottage on a beautiful property. All amenities are up to date and was very clean. Shirley even went one step further by personally leaving a plate of homemade cookies for our arrival. We enjoyed the quiet atmosphere with the creek and wildlife just outside our door. We were very impressed! Also I might also add that the drive from town to Creekside Barn is no more than a stones throw. It literally took us about a 10 minute drive through the beautiful countryside to arrive at our destination. Staying in town is for the birds. This place is where you wanna be. I had the pleasure of meeting Shirley upon our departure and she couldn't be more pleasant. I highly recommend staying at Creekside. We will return again. And again. And again. Thank you Shirley for your hospitality and warm and cozy welcoming. We love your place!!

Beautiful and relaxing

What a great place to stay! The atmosphere is very peaceful with wildlife roaming around and the clear water in the creek was great. You can see fish, turtles etc enjoying the swim. Deer frequent the yard so taking some great pictures is easy.

I know that we will be making another trip here again. Thanks for the wonderful host for allowing us this great time.

Overwhelming beauty and exceptional hospitality

The Henderson's property and hospitality are absolutely top notch! Creekside Barn was the perfect place for us to celebrate our 35th anniversary. The cabin is warm and welcoming not to mention exquisitely decorated in country charm. Shirley's delicious cookies were an unexpected bonus...yum!!! The outdoor accommodations are fabulous. There are numerous sitting areas along the creek where you can enjoy the gorgeous scenery and abundant wildlife. Though out in the country, Fredericksburg is just 20 minutes away! We will be back and the next time will spend more time on the property and less time in town. Book a stay at Creekside, you'll be glad you did!

Absolute perfection! Beautifully decorated, welcoming and spotless, it supplied all of the comforts of home. Shirley and Wayne skipped nothing and were the perfect hosts. Her homemade banana nut bread hit the spot! The peacefulness and the beauty of the location was beyond my expectations, and I witnessed wild turkeys and deer. I recommend this beautiful cabin and its gorgeous surroundings without hesitation, and would definitely stay here on a return visit. Thank you, Shirley and Wayne! Susie from Houston
