Located just a short walk from Main Street this 1950 style home is both elegant and comfortable. The name “Sam Houston’s Retreat” came from their favorite pet dog. You will see a variety of artwork throughout the house to remind you of Sam Houston. It is evident they have done and thought of everything to make each and every stay a special memory. Your hosts completely remodeled this awesome home in 2013.
Walking into the front door you will be in awe of the beautiful living room. There is a red luxurious sofa with two comfortable chairs faced to enjoy both the fireplace and the 42” flat screen cable television and DVD player. There is also an awesome game table with cushioned straight back chairs to enjoy playing games or just to visit. Your hosts have provided books, games, cards and puzzles for you to enjoy during your stay. Across the hall from the living room is a bath with a large tile shower. The sunroom faces the patio and offers a beautiful setting with a majestic day bed with trundle. (Sheets in armoire).
Two bedrooms are exquisitely decorated to create both romance and royalty. The master bedroom has a king bed decked in an array of colors with the primary color being red. The armoire has another flat screened television. A loveseat in the corner is great for reading or just lounging. The second bedroom has a lovely iron queen bed topped with an array of pillows.

The location is great. There is a nice little store straight across the street. Close to Main Street. Nice clean home with everthing you need for your stay. I would love to stay again. The Gastehaus Schmidt makes renting it easy. They are very friendly and make you feel like family.

We rented the Sam Houston Retreat and enjoyed our stay very much. It was located close to downtown restaurants and shops. Best of all it was dog friendly and we could bring our 2 mini schnauzers! Looking forward to renting again!

We've stayed at a number of B&B;'s around Fredericksburg, but rately stay in town. Sam Houston's Retreat turned out to be a great find. Only two blocks from Main Street, we were able to walk to just about everything we wanted to do in town. The place is spacious, and private, and best of all pet friendly. There was a decent sized fenced back yard for the girls to play. We will definately stay here again.

Very close to Main street and it was nice not having to drive every time we went to town. The house was spacious. We weren't on top of each other like in a hotel room. Fredericksburg offers some great shopping! And the wineries are awesome!

We stayed here for a weekend & very much enjoyed ourselves. The house (furniture, beds, etc) were very comfortable. The bedrooms are separated from the main living space which was an advantage for us. We did not spend much time on the enclosed patio room or outside since it was so hot when we were there (the patio room did have aC but we didn't turn it on). The bathrooms were slightly dated but very clean. The house is on a busy street but was close to main street, shopping, etc. I would definitely stay here again if we are ever in the area.

Sam Houston's Retreat was spacious, an overall good value, and the location offered certain conveniences that other rentals did not, but the outside noise and traffic activity never let up. I'm not sure we would select it again for that reason.
