1stt Anniversary

5 on May 19, 2017

Thinking the sterile environment of a chain hotel would not be adequate for an anniversary weekend I looked for a B&B. This was our first time staying at a B&B and we were not disappointed one bit. Ms. Harrison was fantastic a gracious host, and gourmet cook. All we could say is yum! The cabin was absolutely beautiful and one of the most comfortable places my wife and I have stayed this past year of marriage. I can not come back to Fredericksburg and stay any where else. The romantic ambiance of the private outdoor hot tub was enhanced by the appearance of fire flies. Holy cow what a great weekend. I couldn't get the TV to work and the cell phone service was spotty, but not having both was exactly what we both needed to "unplug" for a few days. Go visit the Rockbox Theater, you will not be disappointed!

A True B&B

5 on March 28, 2017

My husband and I spent our anniversary long weekend here. We stayed in Clara's cabin; it was great, a cabin in the city! It sits behind the main house that has two suits, with its own private yard and hot tub. Surrounded by trees, landscape and singing birds, its private and not visible from the street. Clean and quiet it has a loft which would be nice if traveling with kids. The owner Kat makes delicious homemade breakfasts! No continental here, its a true B&B! We will definitely come back on our next visit!


Sienna Suite

5 on July 31, 2016

I had a very stressful week at work, so on Thursday my boyfriend and I decided we needed a getaway. We live in Austin and looked at Fredericksburg, Wimberley and a few other locations. We were set on a bed and breakfast because neither of us have ever stayed at one. We looked at many different sites and pictures and decided on this one. It was a wonderful experience! I was sad I didn't get to leave a note behind but we could not find a pen between us! The room was cozy and the bed was so comfortable! I have trouble sleeping through the night, most likely due to stress and both nights I slept so sound and comfortably. It was amazing. The breakfast was to die for, seriously so yummy! I had to take pictures both Mornings and share on social media. Great location, service, and the perfect relaxing getaway I needed. Hopefully next we go we will get the cabin! Highly recommend!


True to its name!

Overall this place is a rare find. Clean, great food , beautiful accommodation. Book it now! We stayed in Clara's cabin. It was beautifully decorated with an outdoor theme ranging from Texan native American and Alaskan. Beautiful hand crafted pieces of unique furniture and art work. Its clean and comfortable. Its like having a home away from home. The gourmet breakfast was delicious as expected. Its private and perfect for honeymooner's or an anniversary. The cabin has a private entrance with beautiful landscaping. The hot tub is private and has a gazebo. We highly recommend this place and plan to come again.

Victorian Suite Anniversary Getaway

5 on September 05, 2013

I absolutely loved this gorgeous suite! The private hot tub was very clean and romantic. Everything about our stay was incredible. My Husband booked this B&B as a surprise for our Anniversary. The walk or drive to town is within blocks. The breakfast was amazing and our Hoste Kat was friendly and hospitable. I highly recommend this B&B!


Fabulous B&B

5 on August 12, 2013

We stayed in both Clara's cabin and the Victorian Suite and both were nothing less than perfect! The rooms were spotless, the food was amazing and the decor in both was incredible. This is one of the few B&B that actually serves a full gourmet breakfast. The host was extremely friendly and very knowledgeable regarding activities and dining in the area. We can wait to go back!


Claira's cabin

5 on August 12, 2013

We thoroughly enjoyed our lovely weekend getaway at this gem. The private cabin was super clean and very nicely furnished. The gourmet breakfast was amazing as was the owner, Katherine who was so knowledgeable about the town and it's sights. Close to almost everything you could want, we would highly recommend this as a very romantic getaway. The private hot tub situated in a lovely garden was so elegant. We will be back!
