The heat of a long hot summer directed our thoughts towards a lazy weekend getaway in the Texas Hill Country.
We enjoy exploring the area but typically never do an overnight since most of our favorite Hill Country spots are only an hour or two away from our HQs west of Austin.
This time we felt differently with a plan to visit local friends that had moved to Fredericksburg and renovated a variety of historic properties to their former glory, with the added bonus of modern conveniences.
We opted for two nights chilling at their historic 1880’s log cabin featuring wooden floors, exposed beams and a rock fireplace. It’s just one product of their talent for renovating old spaces, infusing them with rustic details and topping it of with some Texas style hospitality.
It fit our needs perfectly and fed our souls with its rustic charm. Not to mention it’s very close to Main Street in Fredericksburg and one of our favorite Hill Country restaurants.
The king bed was very comfy. We slept like babies.
Our friends appointed their 1 bedroom bed & breakfast cabin with lovely furniture, fixtures and modern accessories such as a multi-function USB charger and modern quiet A/C that blows cold.
On top of the complimentary WiFi the vintage designed bluetooth speaker, candles and even a lantern were a nice touch.
I neglected to snap photos of the indoor whirlpool tub for two, the plush bathroom/dressing area, or the kitchennete. We ate out, however the Keurig came in handy for brewing our morning coffee, and the mini fridge kept our wine and cheese properly chilled.
The above sentence points to what became our favorite activity on this historic property once owned by President LBJ’s maternal grandmother. Sitting out on the front porch in the rocking chairs! Of course with wine during the long lovely summer evening and our coffee during the relatively cooler mornings. Watching folks walking their dogs and pushing strollers in the quiet neighborhood.
One view from the rocking chairs. Details add to the charm.
Even our friend’s little bunny, Frankie, who lives around the property, came by and paid us a visit. Never got a pic of him, but he didn’t refuse any of the mini carrots I supplied!
So now we have an excuse to stay overnight when we hit the Fredericksburg area! Why stay in a boring chain hotel when you can have complete privacy and all this charm? I think a brisk fall weekend might be our next opportunity!
