I spent a lot of time looking for a cottgae/cabin for my trip to Fredericksburg. This little cabin was my final choice and perfect! It has a totally separate bedroom, wifi internet, Dish TV, and a little fire stove in the sitting area. Start a fire and open the little door and you have your own firplace. The cabin is only 7 miles from town and not so remote as to feel too isolated, but far enough out to enjoy the hill country scenery. The bed is very comfortable as is the rest of the cabin. It has wildlife together with all the comforts of home. No other place has all this at such a value. What a wonderful find!
Very much enjoyed the house. Beautiful view from front porch, comfortable with nice kitchen. We sat on the rockers on the front porch and enjoyed morning coffee while watching the goats on the opposite hill.

It was a very nice cabin, very quiet and we had wonderful time watching the butterflies on all the wildflowers. We missed the bluebonnets but the other flowers were in full bloom and the fields were alive with color.

This is a wonderful and very comfortable house in a beautiful hillside location close to Fredericksburg. The owners make all comforts available for guests. The price is great, the views amazing, wifi available and great location. You can see more stars here than you knew existed. We spotted deer, rabbits and lots of songbirds. We will definitely be back!
We have stayed at this house many times. We keep going back and

This is a perfect place about 6 miles west of Fredericksburg on some ranch land. It is very quiet and peaceful. It has one bedroom (perfect for a couple), a nice size bathroom, a full size kitchen, and a great covered porch to sit out and enjoy the scenery. In the spring and fall, you can open all the windows and get a great breeze blowing through. We love this house.

We were hoping to find a comfortable cabin on a good road for bicycling. This house was perfect. Far enough out of town to give us the privacy we wanted, a series of country roads that provided endless options for distances and routes, and a very comfortable and attractive cabin.
We loved it. We will be back.
Peaceful, spacious, private hillside cabin with a great view

We loved this very nice, spacious cabin with a great front porch and wonderful view. The kitchen had everything we needed, the bedroom and bath were perfect and we loved the peaceful, private rural setting.
The living room was very comfortable and very nicely decorated. We also enjoy walking on the property and seeing all the birds and signs of wildlife.

We had a wonderful weekend get away in a scenic cabin in the woods.
We enjoyed watching the wildlife and taking in the beauty of the wildflowers.
The cabin was thoughtfully furnished and included everything we needed.
The cabin was rural enough for the get away but close enough to town for eating, shopping and church.
