Mod Haus can easily accommodate large groups. It sleeps 10-12 people in beautifully decorated, spacious bedrooms. There's one king bedroom, two queen bedrooms, one double bedroom and a room with two twins, plus the game room has two double sleeper couches. You will have trouble deciding which bedroom you want to use. (No problem, you can come back again and again and try them all!)

. Mod Haus has all the amenities including fully equipped kitchen with two ovens, two large screen tv's, there's even a mod game room (with board games and a PS4!), Mod Haus features four full bathrooms all decorated in the mid century style, and high-end cozy linens and other amenities (q-tips, cotton balls, and even make-up remover sheets) are provided for your convenience.

The fun continues outdoors with a refreshing swimming pool for when you have had a long hot day of fun, a large covered outdoor patio, a gas grill, and a large tree covered back yard. There's a gas fire pit, an outdoor shower and a washer and dryer provided. There's off-street parking for more than four cars, and it's just under a mile from Markt Platz on Main Street.. There are tons of amenities right across the street, including a convenience store, restaurants, even a spa. You can stay in and watch movies on one or both of the large screen televisions or have an outdoor pool party. The large fenced-in backyard is great for outdoor games too. You can play horseshoes in the shade of beautiful oak trees. With so much to do right here at Mod Haus, you may never want to leave!

About Carrie Wikander

Paul grew up in Berkeley, CA and attended Cal Berkeley. Carrie is a fifth-generation Fredericksburger. After attending Texas A&M to be a teacher and looking for adventure, Carrie moved to California with a suitcase and $500.00 and got lots of it, including meeting and marrying Paul. After the birth of Jonas, our only child in 1997, we decided to move to Fredericksburg and built a house on family land. Paul has been a contractor, and Carrie taught in the local school. Now with an empty nest, we are starting a new adventure with Mod Haus.

Carrie Wikander purchased this house in 2015

Why Carrie Wikander chose Fredericksburg

This is a unique place, with huge open spaces, a fabulous kitchen, and super large, spacious bedrooms. When we saw it, we fell in love. Because the house is so large and because it's so close to many amenities and within walking distance of town, we realized it would be the perfect place for a VRBO, with Fredericksburg being an established destination for wineries, shopping, festivals, and more. With the amazing back yard and outdoor space, we knew it needed a pool. Mod Haus sits in the middle of three acres, and has beautiful oak trees, and a kind of different feel to it than a lot of VRBO's in the area. Now that it's finished, we love the place even more.

What makes this house unique

Mod Haus is unique space in the Fredericksburg VRBO world. It is a mid-century house that is carefully decorated in mid-century modern style , with large bedrooms, and an open concept living/kitchen space that can easily accommodate larger groups. It's quite close to town, and very close to tons of amenities including a convenience store, a spa, restaurants and more right across the street, and is within walking distance to Main Street, Fredericksburg. The outdoor spaces are spacious and lovely, dotted with beautiful oak trees, as well as a pool and a large covered deck. The many period windows in the house give it an even more open feel, as well as a great view of the outside pool and yard. The huge yard is a great place for a barbecue, to play horseshoes, or to enjoy our beautiful Texas evenings outside. Inside there are two large screen televisions, a PS4 gaming system, a fully equipped kitchen, and four complete bathrooms, all decorated in the mid-century style, as well as a washer and dryer. Mod Haus would be a fabulous place for several couples to get together, or for a family reunion, a retreat, or even for single friends to get together for a weekend getaway with a group of friends. We think that once you stay here you'll want to come back again and again.

Loved the space!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at Modhaus!! The house is large with an open concept living/dining/kitchen area that is great for entertaining. There were plenty of rooms and bathrooms for our bachelorette group! I would definitely recommend this house to others needing a space to accommodate 10+ guests!

Mod Haus was Great!

  • 5 of 5

Very spacious with comfortable beds-,,,,our family loved staying there. The game room with a TV was an added plus- The only negative was that we couldn’t get hot water for showers in the back bathroom so we had to share showers..It had plenty of seating in the living area and it has a fun theme!

Perfect place for a girls weekend getaway!!!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved the house! It was the perfect place for our group. We had our gift exchange party there. The patio is perfect and the open concept area in the kitchen and living room area is perfect for the gathering we had. The house is conveniently located close to main street. The house was very clean and it is decorated very nicely. Bed sheets were very comfy. Will be back to Modhaus for sure!

House was rad! Better than the pictures. Super accommodating to our party.

  • 5 of 5

We had a 40th birthday party, and it was the perfect house for our group. We had a blast and the house was awesome. The beds were super comfortable and they have everything you need right there. And, we had an issue with the fire pit we told the owners And they literally went and bought a new fire pit and installed it that day. Great place. Will definitely be staying there again on our next trip to Fredericksburg.
