Great B&B

4.0 on August 09, 2013

This was a great place and we will come back for sure. The rooms were clean and nice, the breakfast was really good, and the views of the river we great.

Very pleasant stay

Check in and out was painless and fast. Manager very pleasant and attentive. Saw wildlife from porch, Easy access to room and amenities. Breakfast was stunningly good, looked almost too good to eat. Bed was very comfy. Room was nice and cool, A/C worked just fine in our hot Texas summer. Only minor thing was the lack of accessible electric outlets in the sleeping area, none under desk for charging computer.

We enjoyed the stay

Luxury Getaway in the Hill Country

The property is easy to find, modern, and well run. My only regret is that with my weekday stay I missed the live music that weekend.

Truly a home away from home

5 on March 27, 2013

If you are looking for a true getaway, a home away from home with a warm and inviting staff to take care of all of your needs, than this is the place for you. The location of this b&b is perfect! The only sounds you hear are the running water of the creek and nature at its finest. Minerva is the manager and she prepares a wonderful breakfast and lunch for any palate. The pool and hot tub are crystal clear and very inviting, as are the comfy chairs and couches that are surrounding the entire plantaion. The grounds are well maintained and we like the fact that the parking lot is not right next to the building. You don't hear doors slamming or radios playing. It is truly wonderful and we are so grateful that we have discovered the Walden Plantation! See you soon! - Michael and Jennifer

We had a wonderful time. Look forwards to going back soon.

Amazing B&B with amazing owners!

The location is out a bit as others pointed out in their reviews but my husband and I found that to be a plus! We enjoyed the quiet atmosphere and it was not a long drive at all to see places and dine in some great restaurants. The parking is very reasonable... not far from rooms at all... yet close enough you felt secure even late at night. Walden Plantation is a beautiful place to stay... very relaxed and the owners make you feel as though it is your home while you are there. They did everything they could to make our stay ejoyable and special! We would not hestitate to stay there again!

Hotel wannabe, not a bed and breakfast!

2.4 on August 21, 2012

First of all, it is not 30 minutes from Fredericksburg. It is 45 minutes to an hour depending on traffic. Places to go eat are limited as well. We were very disappointed - we could have gotten the same thing from a chain hotel. Basically a bedroom and bathroom with a free breakfast. They had snacks and drinks in the mini-fridge that they wanted to charge you hotel prices for as well. It is a hike to your room from the parking lot and a hike to the river as well. The hike to the river is full of stickers - we spent 30 minutes getting the stickers out of our shoes when we got back to room. We still encountered stickers left by others in the carpet and bath mat! And yes we stayed on the "path" they had made. The best place to get in the river is actually across from the place too, not on their property. The whole place seemed like they put a lot of money but little thought into it and had not maintained it well. They did not replace used washcloths, coffee make was dirty, a/c was loud and it sounded like a herd of elephants was staying above us! Porches needed sweeping - dead bugs and animal poop all around. To top it off, they were playing Christmas music in August! I will not be going back, nor will I recommend it to anyone.

I looooooved this place.....

Minerva (the manager) is all about making you feel at home. Angie the owner is a sweet lady.... every staff member is very kind. If you are looking to get away with no agenda and to simply relax ... This is the place to stay. Breakfast is delicious.... the pecan muffin simply amazing.. I stayed 4 nights to reconnect with friends that I have not seen in over 10yrs ... we all loved this place... cant wait to make plans to go back with my husband....
