Blacksmith Quarters on Baron's Creek

417 E. Main Street , Fredericksburg, TX 78624 USA (Show map)

About

"Qui Si Sana – Here You Heal." Honoring the owner’s Italian heritage, this phrase is inscribed upon the entrance to The Blacksmith Quarters on Barons Creek, and we can’t think of anything that would be more appropriate. Located one block from the Nimitz museum and stretching from Main Street to Barron’s Creek, this stunning compound of cottages in the heart of Fredericksburg is unlike any other in town. Located on the original Ransleben Blacksmith property, there are eight new one-bedroom cottages named after the families children and built to reflect the different time periods and styles of construction throughout Fredericksburg. In addition, you have the original Ransleben-Moellering home that was built in the 1800’s and has been restored to perfection. Exploring the property is like strolling through Fredericksburg’s history as you come across Sunday Haus style cottages with stone fireplaces, and Victorian cottages with reclaimed antique brick and Victorian mantel pieces. Facing the creek you have two Vintage Hill Country cottages with antique board and batten, wide planked wood floors and views along the creek. Pulling the whole property together is gorgeous landscaping designed by award winning landscape architect, Rene J. L. Fransen of New Orleans. With space for a group, and offering amenities including WiFi access, private hot tubs at most of the cottages, and central heating and air conditioning. A light, unhosted breakfast is included in your stay.

What an incredible pleasure to find this beautiful and relaxing property for our brief stay in Fredericksburg. The cottages were exquisitely designed and maintained as well as the grounds surrounding. An added treat was the private hot tub on the back deck. The decor and comfort were beyond our expectations and we will certainly look forward to coming again.
