The Italian Place

236 Loring Street , Stonewall, TX 78671 USA (Show map)


One night rentals are no problem with us Stay in a cottage, not a room. Quiet and only 15 min. to Fredericksburg, TX and 5 min. to Luckenbach,TX and the Wine Road 290 is one block away. We serve breakfast instead of offering breakfast certificates. Breakfast is served the night before so you can sleep late and heat it up. We offer homemade pumpkin muffins, yogurt with fresh fruit, breakfast tacos or quiche and granola. Our place is on a 1/2 acre in a small town and viewing the night sky is a must. Our reviews say it all....TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence winner

Country Get Away

We enjoyed our weekend in the hill county at The Italian Place. The owners were very friendly and welcoming. We enjoyed breakfast and getting a chance to take a spin on the bicycles!! Looking forward to booking again, plus it's very close to our favorite wineries.

Great B&B for wine tasting, bicycling and seeing bluebonnets!

During peak bluebonnet season, we stayed at The Italian Place during the week. Just a block from the river with great biking roads and pretty bluebonnets, this place was excellent. It is near LBJ park and wineries and house had brochures to help. Nice breakfast and awesome chocalot figures. Owners were very helpful!

Outstanding bed & breakfast-The Italian Place

5 on April 13, 2016

We were very impressed with our hosts, and loved our stay. We enjoyed having our breakfast delivered in the evening, and being able to set our own schedule each day. We are looking forward to taking my parents there , and by ourselves again in the future.

Wonderful Stay

We had a great stay at the Inn. The room was very comfortable and clean. But that is not what makes it so nice. It is the whole experience. The outside decor, the breakfast, the flavored coffee, all made it worth the stay. Would highly recommend the Inn.

It felt like home!

A great place just of Hwy. 290 and in close proximity of Fredericksburg and the many wineries that occupy the area. We chose the Amore' since there were 4 of us and it was perfect. At the end of the day you felt like you were coming home. Bill and Amber are the perfect hosts and The Italian Place is a wonderful weekend getaway.

Wonderful Place!!

We recently stayed in the Bellissimo for our 17 wedding anniversary. It was a much needed peaceful, relaxing stay. From the warm welcome by the owners, to the quiet, clean room and comfortable bed, it was a nice experience. Everything is well maintained. The yard is a nice place to sit and talk, and is a short drive to many wineries. We will definitely be back!

Cozy, Clean and spacious

I stayed at the Italian Place in March 2016. The owner is very nice, pleasant and reliable. The house was very spacious, clean and provided for all our necessities. The breakfast was brought the night before was was plenty, well made and yummy. I recommend the house.

Another Great Stay

My wife and I stayed in Amore' this trip because the other 2 units were booked. What a wonderful house. The breakfast burritos were wonderful along with the muffins and fresh fruit yogurt. We definitely will be staying again in the future. We enjoyed sitting on the outdoor porch at the end of our evening. Thank you Amber and Bill.

Perfect b&b for everyone

Needed a one night stay for 3 sisters-in-law to getaway from our hubbies and kiddos -we were pleasantly surprised with our little cottage and loft area. Can't wait to make a return visit!
