Excellent B&B!

4.8 on September 29, 2014

My husband and I were in Fredericksburg to celebrate a friend's wedding, it was my first time in the city. We always try to stay at B&Bs rather than a hotel. Not only is Das Garten Haus fun to say in a fake German accent, it was excellent accommodations. It is about a 2 minute drive to Main Street (we would have walked but it was raining), and a very quiet and comfortable place. We stayed in the cottage with a private entrance which made coming/going easier- didn't have to worry about waking anyone up! The bed was amazing, very comfortable sheets, large king sized bed. My husband is a tall man so it's rare we find a bed big enough for him! Although we didn't spend too much time there, the cottage has a microwave, minifridge with juice, sodas and water, as well as a coffee maker with tea, coffee and hot chocolate available. Everything was clean and fresh; bathroom had fluffy towels and great smelling locally made soap. The food was excellent, not the typical heavy breakfast items. We enjoyed fresh fruits and french toast the first morning, then baked pears and quiche the second. If we ever make it back to Fredericksburg, we would definitely stay here again!


Delightful B and B

Lynn is a wonderful host and the breakfasts were amazing! Even though it is the summer in Texas, we were able to enjoy the delightful gardens.


Great Getaway

We had a fantastic time! We enjoyed sitting in the garden and looking at all the beautiful plants and the fish pond. I loved the fact that the vegetables they used came from their garden and the eggs came from their hens. This helps makes the breakfast so delicious, plus Lynn is a fantastic cook! The hospitality, atmosphere, and food were all excellent. You can't go wrong staying here!


Outstanding hospitality in the heart of Fredericksburg

5 on June 27, 2014

We stayed for one night in the upstairs suite at Das Garten Haus. The suite was exquisitely decorated and exceptionally comfortable. Freshly baked cookies and other refreshments welcomed us to the suite, as did the owner, Lynn. She gave us a tour of the suite and offered suggestions for places to see and to dine at in Fredericksburg. In the morning, breakfast was sensational: juice, coffee, local sausages, macadamia nut pancakes, and hash browns seasoned with herbs from the garden; all served on fine china! This was our first time to stay at a bed and breakfast and we hope that our future experiences will approximate the quality of Das Garten Haus. We highly recommend!


Das Garten Haus - Great B & B

4.8 on June 19, 2014

We thoroughly enjoyed our B & B stay at Das Garten Haus. Very clean and quaint as well as excellent attention from the owner and a superb breakfast (2nd to none).


Wonderful Weekend

4.4 on May 27, 2014

My wife and I had a very enjoyable weekend. We stayed in the cottage which was very nice with all sorts of amenities including a small kitchen. When we got tired it was a welcome and comfortable place to rest. The breakfast was outstanding each morning! And we enjoyed the conversations. The hosts were so warm and friendly and offered help with everyone's questions. They even brought us an umbrella when it was raining so we could walk across the patio for breakfast without getting wet. I enjoyed seeing the garden, too. The location is very close to town but away from all the crowds downtown. This is one of the best B&Bs we have stayed.


Very Charming B & B

4.6 on May 20, 2014

We spent two nights in the Garden Suite. It was spacious and comfortable. Breakfast both days was outstanding. Delicious food served on beautiful china in a gracious dining room. I would definitely recommend this B & B as a great place to stay.

This was mine and my fiancé's second stay at Das Garten Haus. We first visited alone last year, then returned this past weekend with a group of college friends for a "couples weekend." Once again, we were very impressed with the stay, and the breakfast was great each morning. I will continue to recommend Das Garten Haus to anyone looking for B&Bs in Fredericksburg!


Lovely hostess, lovely breakfast

4.2 on May 09, 2014

We had a lovely weekend stay in the Garden Suite. Lynn was very welcoming and a ready wealth of information about the area. Breakfast was a feast of yummy treats. The room was large for the price, with a separate living/kitchen area. The one downside was the size of the bathroom which is the tiniest I've ever seen. Not a deal breaker for us, but you should be aware of it if it is for you.


Cozy B&B

5 on April 21, 2014

We stayed in the upstairs suite with another couple and we loved it. It was roomy with a very cozy feel to it. The rooms were well kept and clean. Breakfast on Saturday was AWESOME. There were some odd circumstances that led to not having breakfast on Sunday, but Lynn made us aware of this well in advance and discounted our rate a bit to make up for it. Lynn was very cordial and maintained good communication with us right up until we arrived. We would definitely recommend this B&B and would love to stay here again.
