Perks for the Parents

A historical home in the heart of Fredericksburg, Texas with a separate guest house, hot tub and heaps of quirky charm. It sleeps 10. This is a great location for parents interested in history, culture or architecture: the building is a Texas Historical Landmark and is close to the historic district which is filled with museums and landmarks marking the heritage of this region. This charming estate has been carefully preserved yet loaded with modern conveniences and impressive upgrades. Comprising 2 separate buildings, the green space in between the homes contains plenty of outdoor seating for those warm Texas nights, with a hot tub and outdoor fireplace for cooler evenings. A grill is also available for guests who want to cook up some Texan family meals.

Why Kids Love it

This is a great area for families and you’ll find lots to do with kids nearby. It’s a short walk to Old Fair Park where there’s a skate park, basketball court and playground. Walk over Main Street for Tubby’s burger joint and playground (5 minutes’ walk) for easy kids dinners, or watch the planes land while you snack on pancakes at the airport diner in Gillespie County Airport (8 minutes’ drive). For days out, try hiking or climbing at Enchanted Rock nature reserve (20 minutes’ drive). For parents traveling with grandparents or a nanny, the Sunday House provides a separate space from the Main House (sleeping up to 2).

Things to Know

Minimum stay: 2 nights. This home is professionally managed with hosts available around the clock to answer questions or provide assistance where needed. Guests will access the property through lockboxes next to the main entry doors. Please return all keys to their lockboxes upon departure. Upon arrival, guests will park in the driveway to the left of the main house. Car rental is recommended, but Uber and Lyft are also available. House rules: no smoking, no pets, no outdoor shoes inside the house, no candles or open flames. Please lock all doors and windows when you leave the house. Violation of any house rules will result in a $1000 fine each time.

About the Location

This residence is located in downtown Fredericksburg, Texas. Main Street is within walking distance and the surrounding area boasts a rich history, art galleries, restaurants, shops and a full year-round calendar of family-friendly events. It’s close to the Vereins Kirche landmark, which is surrounded by a park, playground and farmers market, and 15 minutes’ walk from the Pioneer Museum, which celebrates the region’s German heritage (which can also be seen in the street’s German bakery). It’s 1 hour from San Antonio international airport.

Accommodation Details

This residence has 5 bedrooms and 5 bathrooms, set over 2 floors. It consists of 2 stone buildings with a gathering space between them. You’ll find a cozy living space, connected to a large bathroom with a walk-in shower, large bathtub and vanity space. The first bedroom is also on this floor, with a kingsize bed, desk area and wardrobe. Further down the hall there’s a large dining room with a table seating 8, next to the fully equipped kitchen (containing a double oven, wine fridge, an updated fridge, dishwasher and tons of counter space). Open the French doors to access the garden space or the Sunday House or turn right to find the breakfast nook, half bathroom and laundry room. Upstairs, there are 3 bedrooms, all with ensuite bathrooms. In the separate Sunday House, there’s a huge living space, a kingsize bed and full kitchen, plus a bathroom with 2 sinks, walk-in shower and standalone bathtub.

Style Notes

Historic charm. This homely residence built in the 1860s by one of Fredericksburg’s original stonemasons, is filled with architectural details and updated with contemporary styling to create an inviting family abode. Each of the five bedrooms are carefully-decorated with local accents, while the Main House features a comfortable lounge area with a fireplace for cozy evenings. The historical marker at the entrance shows off the building’s rich history, as do the exposed stone walls and rustic wooden beams in the Sunday House. We love the quirky built-in shower within the stone walls, the traditional stag head in the living room and the charming upstairs balcony where you can watch the world go by.
