Call on your pioneer spirit! This quaint loft space is an example of frugal early German Texan design. One bedroom is part of a log cabin built in 1873. Make a high step across a log wall to enter this room! A 2nd bedroom is part of an 1896 limestone addition. Lots of history here. These are not luxury accommodations, and not for anyone with “accessibility” challenges. The steps are tight and there’s some low clearance. This space is authentic and near original, with a few modern conveniences.

This place is so cute and comfy. The drive out to the house through the ranch land is wonderful too!

Bill’s place is a comfortable, rustic home. A short drive to Fredericksburg.

Response from Bill:
In his review, Gary claimed he saw mold in the coffee pot. I questioned him about this and found out what he imagined was mold was actually hard water spots. Because of the limestone nature of the hill country, we have hard water, and when that water dries we can get hard water…

Great location if you’re looking for a quiet, farm life experience. We enjoyed the outdoor space. Flawless communication and hospitality from the host.

We loved our stay! It was so fun to hear the history of the place! The space was clean and we appreciated the amenities very much. I would definitely stay here again. It wasn’t just a place to stay but a whole experience!
