Description from the manager
Contemporary Hill Country describes this unique house, tucked into the hillside with a spectacular view across to Fredericksburg, six miles away.
No wonder Charlie Cain, an investor in the San Antonio-Fredericksburg railroad, gave this location its special name back in 1914. The property – 10 acres of Inspiration Hill – was in fact, the inspiration for the house its extraordinary design and flavor.
Stucco exterior and standing-seam metal roof hold the cool in summer and warmth in winter. Inside, a stunning mix of modern, international antique, color and texture mix comfortably, providing the ultimate hill-country exper...Read more

Wonderful girls weekend at Inspiration Hill
We went to Fredricksburg for a girls weekend and had a wonderful time. Inspiration Hill was absolutely wonderful. It had everything we needed. We are planning to go back in January!!!
Mike and Karen
We loved our stay. The house was awesome and very homey. The outdoor shower was a hit. The kitchen had all the amenities and plenty of dishes. The one complaint - there was no coffee. This was quite disappointing on the first morning when a good cup of coffee would have been great on the porch. Also no dishwasher soap.
This house was perfect for our girlfriend's weekend retreat. Each of the five of us had our own bed, and the 2 1/2 baths (plus outdoor shower) offered convenience.
The kitchen had everything we needed for food prep. We enjoyed fixing a few meals on our own, and gathering around the large table together.
Some of our favorite times included early morning coffee and evening drinks on the screened porch. The view is lovely, especially at those times of day. We also appreciated the cat food made available to us for feeding the two cats that came by to visit in the morning.
The house was comfortable, well provided, immaculate, and nicely decorated, making it a real haven for relaxation and good times. We would love to come back again.
Inspiration Hill = Pure Bliss
We have been coming to this house for years and love everything about it. It sits in a great location overlooking the hills. It is modern, spacious and comfortable. I have never needed anything while staying there as the house is fully equipped. The property is very well maintained and you'll even meet some new friends while you're there. The wildlife is spectacular including hummingbirds and deer. There isn't enough I can say about this house, so go stay there and see for yourself. I wouldn't stay anywhere else when visiting Fredericksburg!
Inspiration Hill Review
It's been a little over two years since we last stayed at Insp Hill. It was during a really bad stent of weather and TV down stairs didn't work so we were constantly having to go up stairs to get weather news. Other than that it was wonderful.
Would be nice if a TV could be put in living area so you wouldn't have to sit on the bed to watch during the day. We've told several of our friends about it and have considered staying again in the future.
The place was great! Location and accommodations were outstanding and I would recommend it to anyone. The only downside was the price.
A nice place to spend a few days.
Isolated location with a good view. Nice furnishings with ample room for five adults.
Spectacular location, spectacular accomodations!
My husband and I celebrated our 21st anniversary at Inspiration Hill. The secluded location was so private and lovely, yet so close to several wineries and downtown Fredericksburg. The time of year of our visit made the outdoor patio and fireplace a very welcome ammenity for both enjoying a cup of coffee on a chilly morning, or a glass of wine in the chilly evening. The kitchen was beautifully stocked and we ate in more than dined out. Finally, the outdoor shower, when enjoyed under the stars, is a definite "must see for yourself!) :)
Awesome and Private
We rented this for my 50th Birthday and it was very private, totally awesome place. I absolutely love to cook and the kitchen was extremely nice. Loved the out door shower we had a full moon, can't say enough good things and will rent again.
Truly an "Inspiration"
This is our absolutely favorite place to stay in Fredericksburg! The owners or this home have thought of everything to make your stay fabulous. The kitchen is a chef's dream; beds and linens wonderful; and standing in the outdoor shower looking out over the view is inspiring! I would recommend Inspiration Hill to anyone looking for a peaceful oasis to relax.
Minutes away from downtown Fredericksburg. Great getaway. High on the hillside with great views. House is in great condition with all amenities. All rooms were very nice. Love the outside shower. Plenty of space for everyone. Love in closed-in screen patio with fire place. Great place overall. I would recommend this place. It lives up to its name.
Wonderful girls retreat
Several friends and I stayed at Gastehaus Schmidt in april 2011 for a girlfriend's bachelorette weekend. The house couldn't have been more perfect. We loved the modern design and open layout with plenty of room for everyone. It had all the conveniences we needed with a real "retreat" feel only a few minutes drive from downtown. I would absolutely stay here again next time I have the opportunity!
