Where you’ll be

Fredericksburg, Texas, United States

The neighborhood is a mile south of Milam and Main Street where you'll find the Pioneer Museum and the West end of the town's restaurants and shops. It's an older local neighborhood with mostly families that have lived in Fredericksburg for generations including a town policeman and his extended family around the corner. Hirschbach Haus next door is also a vacation rental if large groups are in need of more space. It is a short dead end street so there is minimal street traffic but the other houses are older. A new cedar fence surrounds the back yard of the property for a more private and secluded experience.
