About Jill Harpold
My husband and I grew up in Houston, but both spent our weekends and summers in the country. After living in 4 of the 5 larger cities in Texas, we escaped to the Hill Country of Texas in 2000! We started offering our vacation rental in 2010 and have loved hosting! We love entertaining and traveling and know that you will find our Rock Estate Home the perfect place to enjoy Fredericksburg TX!
Jill Harpold purchased this House in 2008
Why Jill Harpold chose Fredericksburg
Our property is quite unique in that it is 'In Town', one block South of Main, but feels like you are out in the country while sitting out on the back patio overlooking our old red barn. We care deeply about exceeding your expectations and have earned the HomeAway/VRBO 2018 Above and Beyond Award for our service to our guests (1 of 5 chosen in the Nation!) We absolutely adore Fredericksburg, the quaint German community and the vibrant arts, culinary and wine center that is has become! Whether you love the outdoors (cycling, hiking), history (War museums, architecture), art (galleries, live music, theatre), unique shopping or great food and wine, you will make great memories at our Sweet Escape Rock Estate Home.
What makes this House unique
-Private, spacious, luxurious space which seems like a Country setting (.66 acre estate with old red barn), but only 1 block South of Main St. and 6 blocks to Marketplatz (center of town). - Antiques, Historic Architectural Charm, and top-notch amenities make our rental a rare treat! - Front porch Rockers and back patio furniture for entertaining by the pool, hot tub, and fire pit!

Great Old Home
We enjoyed our stay, plenty of room for the full family. Great old home - incredible yard/pool. Well stocked.
Definitely a SWEET escape!
Jill was an outstanding host who really went above & beyond to make our stay perfect! She was very quick to respond to all of my messages & even met us the first day to show us around the house. Thank you Jill :)
This was such a beautiful home with an incredible outdoor space that’s perfect for entertaining a large group! I would recommend limiting your group to 10 adults (vs 12) as the pull out couch isn’t very comfortable... but for 10 people this home is absolutely perfect!!
This house was great for a group of 10, and the backyard was fantastic. Would love to return in the summer
Oh so sweet.
Sweet Escape is a beautiful property. Would stay here again in a heartbeat. 100
This property has a lot to offer: nice kitchen, pool, hot tub, lots of space, character, lovely owner.
Jill was super easy to work with. We had a great time staying at her house.
