Built in 1897 on an original townlot deeded by the German Emigration Company, the Schandua Building, an attractive two-story structure made of hand-hewn native limestone, is one of the most recognizable landmark buildings on Main Street in Fredericksburg. This important property has been designated a Recorded Texas Historic Landmark and stands within the Fredericksburg National Historic District. The original owners operated a hardware store on the first floor and lived upstairs. 100 years later, Sharla and Jonathan Godfrey have revived the tradition, with the exquisitely restored Schandua Suite Bed & Breakfast. The Schandua Site is a very upscale 2-room suite with 12 foot ceilings. spacious bedroom has king-size bed and features luxurious linens. Private bath, dressing area, skylight, and walk-in closet. Adjoining library has full Pullman kitchen. TVs, private telephone, individual a/c & heating system, plush robes. Hors d'oeuvres & beverages upon arrival.
