Lillie Marlene, A Fredericksburg, Texas Guesthouse

406 North Adams , Fredericksburg, TX 78624 USA (Show map)


Built in 1941, this cozy retreat is the perfect place to celebrate an anniversary, birthday or honeymoon. Located 3 short blocks from Marktplatz, Lillie Marlene is within a short walk to shopping and the many festivals that take place in downtown Fredericksburg. In the morning relax & sleep in late if you like-then when you are ready enjoy the seasonal fruit & array of tasty items included with the traditional German breakfast in the charming & fully equipped kitchen. Spend warm Texas evenings on the porch swing, or curled up in front of the fireplace when the air turns crisp in the Hill Country. Lillie Marlene is allergy sensitive and does not utilize chlorine-based, pine oil or heavily scented cleaners. You will not find goose down or feathers and bed linen is sun dried when weather permits. Pets are not allowed. Regrettably, there are no accommodations for children. A 10% military discount is offered with valid military ID upon check-in. Mid-week reduced rates are available. Come stay on what was once known as "Millionaire Street" and see what life is all about in Fredericksburg.

The Best in B&Bs

5 on April 29, 2016

Lillie Marlene was beyond all expectations. This gem of the best-of-the-best in B&Bs was the epitome of grace and charm, hospitality in its finest form. Good taste was projected in every possible way, the superb breakfasts, roominess, decorations, cleanliness and home-like atmosphere. When in Texas Hill Country, don't miss this one. We hated to leave. Mary Beth and Harry Clarke

Delightful B&B

We had a delightful stay here in a lovely cottage, so clean and with basic supplies on site. The continental breakfast with home made bread was beautifully laid out and tasty. The cottage is conveniently located within walking distance of town. Our hosts were (and are ) delightful. We shall be back.

If you are looking for a place to stay in Fredericksburg, you have to stay at Lillie Marlene! Pat and Marlene were the perfect hosts. They made sure we had everything we could want. The house was beautifully decorated and very comfortable. The breakfast was amazing everyday! The homemade pastries will blow your mind. Not only is the house a perfect romantic retreat, but it is also just a couple of blocks from Main Street. We will definitely be returning to Lillie Marlene soon. Again, thank you for everything!

The Lillie Marlene is a wonderful B&B to stay at if you want to celebrate a special occasion or just have a getaway weekend to relax. In my opinion, you won't find a better B&B anywhere. The owners are so very nice & treat everyone so special, and the food is amazing there!

Wonderful stay at this cozy cottage! Warm family atmosphere. Walking distance to the city center. Upon arriving, we were met by owners, Pat and Marlene with care; they baked fresh bread for us. We highly recommend this very reasonably-priced guest house.

Innkeeper Response

We enjoyed these excellent accommodations!

We had a wonderful three night stay at Lillie Marlene in Fredericksburg, Texas. The "little house" was so comfortable and filled with vintage photos of family members/ancestors. Marlene provided a detailed history of the house and the surrounding homes. It was such a pleasure to be part of this living history. Marlene was an excellent hostess, advising us about many activities in Fredericksburg and the surrounding area. She gave us excellent advice about restaurants and true to her word we actually ran in to her and Pat at one of her suggestions!(which by the way had delicious entrees). The "breakfast' treats were excellent and so plentiful that we had satisfying snacks throughout the day. We highly recommend these accommodations and look forward to returning to this spot on our next visit to Fredericksburg.

Innkeeper Response
