About

Featured in Southern Living, Food & Wine, Texas Monthly, Bon Appetite and many newspapers, The Chuckwagon Inn is a cut above. It is located on 5 landscaped acres only 3 minutes from Main St. From the lovingly restored five guest cottages to the stone home built in 1854 by one of Fredericksburg's town founders, our guests feel like they have stepped back in time but with all the modern amenities such as whirlpool tubs with showers, king beds and gas log fireplaces. Add a delicious country breakfast and sunsets that take your breath away and you have the perfect weekend get a way.

Outsatnding Bed & Breakfast

5 on June 03, 2013

My husband and I stayed at the Chuckwagon Inn for our 7th anniversary. We had never stayed at a bed & breakfast before, and really did not know what to expect. We were amazed! Our little cabin was very cute, and perfect for us. Sam and Becky are excellent hosts, pros at what they do. Breakfast was delicious each morning and hanging out in the evenings in the cantina was also fun. We will definitely stay there again when we return to Fredricksburg. I do not care to even explore other lodging options they were that good!


Wonderful Experience!

5 on March 26, 2013

It was my first experience staying in a bed and breakfast. My husband and I left Houston for a quick get a way this last February, and we made the best decision of choosing to stay in Chuckwagon Inn. Sam and Becky are great hosts, their cooking was absolutely delicious. They can keep you entertained with lots of fun stories. Our room was Becky's Kitchen, it was very clean and very charming. We loved our experience. We will return for sure! Odila & Courtney Davis


"Our 25thWedding Anniversary"

5 on March 05, 2013

We at this point consider Sam and Becky old friends. We have stayed at this property several times, so many that I have truly lost count. Our favorite is the Bollinger Cabin and when we first discovered this property the cabin had not been built. Both Sam and Becky are extremely personable, kind hearted and I promise you will laugh until you hurt. I once heard a very wise one say, "A GOOD Bed and Breakfast is all about the Bed AND the Breakfast" :) Every one of the beds that we have stayed in on this property are more than comfortable and the "HOMESTYLE" breakfast is delightful. These folks have done it right. We will never stay at another bed and breakfast in Fredericksburg it would be like throwing our money away and we would be cheating on our friends. Susan S.


Great sleep!!

Of all the traveling we have done with motels and B&B, this bed was without a doubt, the MOST comfortable. Never a backache or sore bones. It was wonderful, followed each morning with very yummy breakfasts. We enjoyed the homey atmosphere of Sam and Becky's hospitality and yet we still felt on our own. It was a great stay for us!


New Years at the Chuckwagon Inn

4.6 on January 07, 2013

We stayed at the Chuckwagon Inn with our friends this New Years Eve 2012. The Inn was recommended by one of the couple's dughters, and was everything she said it would be. When we arrived we met Becky and Sam Higgins as we pulled up. From the time we met them we knew that we had picked the right place. Their warmth and humor is definitely contagious! Each cabin at the Inn had a different color scheme, but with a western motif. Many of the furnishings were specially made and were definitely unique. The cabins were clean, bright and had lots of character. The bedding was wonderful! Breakfast was served promptly at 9:00 and Sam made us some of his specialties. One day he made the best biscuits I have ever eaten. Sam and Becky supplied us with many stories of how the cabins were built and we were told about many of the people and business in Fredericksburg. New Years Eve was wonderful for us and The Chuckwagon Inn was the perfect place to stay. Joyce Lobliner


Perfect balance of friendliness and privacy

4.8 on March 13, 2012

My new husband and I recently stayed in the Bollinger Cabin at the Chuckwagon Inn for our mini-honeymoon. The cabin is as cozy and comfortable as it appears in the pictures, complete with a kitchenette, jacuzzi tub, spacious porch swing, and wonderful gas fireplace. It was rustically charming and perfect for a short romantic getaway. We wanted to keep to ourselves, and we were never bothered. Breakfast was the only time we saw other people, and it was nice to listen the stories the Higgins' and the other guests shared. The country breakfasts were really delicious. They were fresh and obviously prepared with great care, and each of the three mornings, we were served totally different items. All were fabulous. When we asked for suggestions for places to eat around Fredericksburg, the Higgins' were very quick to offer them. We tried two places they recommended, and both were delicious and exactly what we were looking for. All in all, the Chuckwagon Inn and the Bollinger Cabin were exactly what was advertised on this website and on their website, and it was exactly what we wanted for our mini-honeymoon. A thank you to Becky and Sam for the wonderful stay, and we will see you again!


All I can say is "WOW".

Had breakfast with Sam and Becky Higgins, the food was southern and amazing! I am so comming back, and telling friends and family. Loved it!


Not so Gourmet Breakfast

3.2 on November 28, 2011

The Chuckwagon Inn was a great place to stay the night. However, everything I had read about the CWI said that it had a gourmet breakfast and said that the owners were award winning chefs. Maybe they took the morning off when we were there because we had a terrible breakfast. The menu consisted of store bought frozen cinnamon rolls and pigs in a blanket (tried to pass them off as homemade), scrambled eggs with sausage, and hash browns. My wife and I were very disappointed to say the least concerning the "Gourmet Breakfast". I gave "Value" a 3 and "Dinning" a 1 because I don't like paying that much to be served an everyday breakfast. Also, Sam is a little crude in his speech but Becky brings balance. The room "Mustang Bunkhouse" was nice, clean, and the bed was very comfortable but we won't be staying there again because of the terrible breakfast.

Innkeeper Response
First of all I would like to thank “Not so gourmet breakfast” for the complement that Chuckwagon Inn was a great place to stay and that the Mustang room was nice and clean and the bed very comfortable. Sam and I regret that you were so disappointed in your breakfast experience that you called it terrible. We greet our guests when they arrive and introduce ourselves and show them where breakfast is served and at that time, we also ask them if they have any problem, dislikes or allergies with any breakfast foods and if they drink coffee in the morning. If you had informed us that you did not like scrambled eggs, sausage or hash browns we would have gladly changed our menu. On occasion we do serve Sister Schubert yeast rolls and have gotten great responses from our guests and when asked we tell them what stores carry them and show them the package so they can buy them. It was not our intention to try to pass them off as homemade and mislead you. Maybe it was because we bake them in small cast iron skillets to keep them warm and place them on the table. We asked a dear friend who is a great cook and trained at The Cordon Bleu in Paris what his definition of gourmet was. He said it was not fancy sauces or a lot of extra ingredients but taking fresh, simple food and preparing it well. This is what we strive for at our B&B whether it is serving fresh farm eggs when available, Sam making his own sausage patties and smoking hams or picking fresh fruit and veggies from our own trees or the little produce stand down the road to serve to our guests. We take our guests comments very seriously, good or bad, and recognize that there is always room for improvement. Sam and Becky Higgins


"A soft place to fall"

5 on June 25, 2011

We have been fortunate to have been guests of Becky and Sam Higgins and their Chuck Wagon Inn at least once a year for over ten years! We look forward each visit to their wonderful hospitality, delicious breakfasts, beautiful and inviting guest rooms and grounds, lively conversation and laughs in the cantina, and as a time to relax and recharge and really "get away from it all." Their love of nature, plants and flowers, and their "wee beasts", Paco and Elton, along with the hummingbirds are enjoyed by us all. Becky has been so accommodating to our golfers to offer a "pocket" sandwich/snack they can tuck away until hunger strikes on the golf course. Who would do that? We always leave with new recipes for "out of this world" culinary creations and advice. Their love and knowledge of the Texas Hill Country and all things Fredericksburg make them treasure-troves on recommendations for new lunch and dinner spots, the latest in shopping, all the events going on in town, wine tasting . . . everything to make our visit a memorable one. I couldn't love the Chuck Wagon Inn more.


Friendly Folk and FANTASTIC FOOD!

4.6 on January 26, 2011

My wife and I stayed here for our honeymoon last year and returned this year for our 1 year anniversary. I couldn’t imagine staying anywhere else! We stayed in the Bolinger Cabin both times and its cool because we have a lot of privacy and its just rustic enough inside for a man to feel comfortable but not so much that a lady doesn’t feel comfortable as well. The main attraction there is Sam and Becky! They are great, easy to talk to, and super helpful! The food is FANTASTIC! Sam is a gourmet cook and it shows! You will never eat the same thing twice while you stay there and you better not be on a diet because the food is too good to only eat a little. Men (or women trying to convince your man to stay at a bed and breakfast): There are no frilly things on the nightstand, it doesn’t look like something out of better homes and gardens, its comfortable (women might like the fancy bed covers and flowers and such though), you will be able to eat SO much for breakfast, they don’t serve quiche, they serve bacon, biscuits, sausage, breakfast tacos, ect… If you like to drink, swear, tell stories, or just hang out and relax while your wife shops you should join Sam at his outdoor cantina in the afternoon or evening. Its far enough away from town to be quiet, but close enough to drive right on in. If you’ve never been to Fredericksburg before you should get tips on where to eat and shop and such from Sam and Becky they know the good places to go and where to avoid. Avoid all those big frilly, quiche serving, boring B&Bs and check out the chuckwagon! We will be there any time we have the chance! There really is no better place to stay!
