Loved our stay at Carriage House on Orchard. Would stay there again in a minute. The hosts have thought of your every convenience. Not only is the decor charming, beds comfortable and bathroom very modern but the outside garden area is so inviting and beautiful. A wonderful find in the Texas Hill Country.
Highly recommend.

We are so happy to chose to stay here. The location was perfect. This property was quiet and private and I know we would have not had that same feeling if we were somewhere right on Main Street which was busy and bustling with crowds. Relaxing was easy while staying at this adorable cottage with its quaint courtyard, porch swing and fire pit. Inside the cottage we felt cozy and relaxed. It is very well decorated and up to date. The bathroom is very well done and has a great shower big enough for two. The little kitchenette was perfect for having drinks and snacks on hand with its little frig, coffee maker and microwave. We felt very welcomed with the bottled waters and juices, coffee and creamer and a very nice coffee cake. I felt like they thought of everything we might need right down to the candle lighter and bottle opener. The king bed was very comfortable and as others have mentioned in earlier posts the linens were divine. I was researching where to purchase the sheets before we even left! If we ever have the chance to return to Fredericksburg we would love to stay at this cottage again. It’s a great place to make sweet memories.

The minute we entered the gate to the Carriage House garden, we were hooked. The patio, garden area and especially the swing drew us in. The Carriage House itself is the perfect refuge for a couple. Everything we needed was contained in that cottage. A king size bed with cozy bedding, a large bathroom with rain/Swedish shower combination and a small kitchen provided almost everything we needed. The only thing we missed was a small table when we enjoyed the delicious large Danish pastry provided to us. We quickly developed a daily routine for our 4 nights here: morning coffee outside on the swing with Danish inside watching the news, evening wine/beer again on the swing as the sun set. Since we are from MN, we enjoyed the warm weather so much that we spent a lot of our cottage time in the garden. The parking spot was convenient, the kitchen had a coffee pot with coffee and cream provided, a microwave, small refrigerator and dishes/silverware. Orange juice, milk, water, cereal, popcorn, and the large Danish were a pleasant surprise. We used the wifi and the flat screen TV to watch the World Series. The cottage was in a perfect location just 4 blocks from Main St. We love Fredericksburg and definitely will book this cottage for another visit.

My wife and I made a short trip to Fredericksburg for just one night. It was our first time there and the cottage was perfect. Easy access, clean, comfy, updated and very close to Main St. Couldn't have asked for a better place to stay. The fresh apple strudel topped it off just perfectly! We'll be back!

We both loved the courtyard other than it’s shared with main house...kept wondering if someone was there (lamp was on inside), luckily main house was empty weekend we were there. Description does not specify courtyard is shared on vacasa website..loved shower too.

We enjoyed our stay very much. We were celebrating our anniversary and the peace and quiet was wonderful. It’s a lovely place, with a comfortable bed and a nicely designed shower. The coffee cake was yummy! The garden area with the fountain was a nice place to enjoy morning coffee, as well as to watch birds and squirrels play.

Situated on a quiet street, this carriage house has an entrance from a beautiful courtyard with a fire pit and fountain and gorgeous landscaping. The king-size bed was very comfortable. The huge shower was great even for my king-sized husband. Nice snack/kitchen area came stocked with juice, a coffee maker with coffee and a fresh baked crumb cake.

We loved our two nights at the Carriage House on Orchard! Our only wish is that we could have stayed longer!! The carriage house is cozy, gorgeous and perfectly appointed. The bed was so comfortable! The linens were very high end and made it difficult to get out of bed! Nice, large shower with good water pressure. The kitchenette was perfect! The breakfast pasteries and cereal were complimented with fantastic coffee. One of the best features was the gas fire pit right outside the door! It was a crisp spring weekend, so we really enjoyed drinking wine and sipping coffee by the fire. We loved I and will be back!! Thank you!

Our stay in the Carriage House was everything we desired plus more! If your're ever in the Fredericksburg area, we highly recommend spending at least one night here just for the experience itself!
Thank you Vacasa for the wonderful, romantic getaway!

Elizette G. Jan 2018
The location of this property was wonderful and we greatly enjoyed it. They only complaint would be that we stayed when it dropped down to freezing and there was no comforter in the home to use, only sheets. Other than that we greatly enjoyed or time there and would book it again.
