I surprised my husband with this stay knowing that his parents had a trailer like it back in the day. We enjoyed our time in Miss Abby. Having the separate, large private bathroom and outdoor shower made for a comfortable stay. We loved the front-row seat that we had for sunset and stargazing. The wifi was sufficiently strong. And, having the dorm fridge, microwave and Keurig coffee maker was perfect.
For people visiting for the first time, I would suggest that they bring some utensils as there were none in Miss Abby. Also, bring any food you will need--the ride back to Fredericksburg is ~15 miles. We didn't find any stores or restaurants near Blue Skies.
We will return for a longer stay so that we can enjoy the shared swimming pool and outdoor fireplace.

We enjoyed our stay. Checking in was a little hectic as the code provided did not work on the RV and had to call and get back up instructions on how to open RV. It was a little chilly and we were tired l. We really just wanted to get in the RV. Also the water pressure in the shower was low and it didn’t stay hot long. It’s difficult during winter to bathe like that. There was a heater in the shower area but it never worked. I tried several times to turn it on.
Overall great place and location. Best sunrise and sunset views. Will definitely be back.
Hi, Liliana! We are so delighted to hear you were happy enough with your stay to return. The batteries have been changed on the keypads, the plumbing has been inspected, and we have verified all codes are working correctly. Thank you for staying with us!

I truly don’t know where to start. I stumbled upon this place based on a friends recommendation and knew instantly I was in love. It’s so incredibly unique & adorable and also smack in the middle of the Texas hill country... what’s not to love?
The trailers are tiny, but quaint, which is perfect for a solo traveler like me. I definitely wouldn’t be doing any lunges inside, but that’s what all that beautiful pasture is for outside!
The bed is an adorable nook that was so cozy during the chilly, December night that I genuinely had a hard time pulling myself out of it the next day. Something about being snugged up in a corner is just so calming.
The private bathroom in the adjacent building was chic & cool and a welcome addition, should you happen to be sharing your trailer with anyone. It maintains the same funky/ retro style and... hello... outdoor shower?? Even in December they prepare you to experience the goodness of open air bathing. They provide a portable heater that I placed right at my feet and the water was crazy hot and stayed hot. Inside the bathroom you can crank up the heat as well, so as soon as your done you get all toasty before walking back.
The views are stunning and just what this homesick Texan needed. The little yard in front of each trailer is adorable and I can see more lounging happening out there in warmer months! I can’t wait to return and check out that pool as well.
Casey and her team are amazing and I can’t say enough good things about this place!

I knew I'd love this place and it exceeded my expectations. Relaxing and super cool. There was no hot water for a shower but I didn't care. 5 STARS.

Beautiful sunsets and wide open spaces are the perfect backdrop to Miss Abby and the Blue Skies Retro Resort! We loved the attention to details and the vintage vibe that made our stay perfect! We'll be back!

There were 8 of us, each had our own Shasta!
I can’t remember when we all laughed, relaxed, and enjoyed our comradery as much as we did at Blue Sky!
Georgina R.Sep 2020
We absolutely loved our time at Blue Skies. The property was very well kept and the staff was readily available by phone to answer questions. My only complaint is that we chose to only stay one night. Can’t wait to visit again!

Blue Skies is wonderful. The location is gorgeous, and the campers are clean, comfortable, and packed with amenities. I’m sure we will be back!

Awesome place to view quiet sunsets and the Texas night sky from your private lawn, inspired by the retro style of the ladies in the fleet! Great private restroom. Looking forward to our next stay!

This resort was incredible! The camper was so clean and cool, even in the 100 degree summer. I can't wait to go back

This was my second stay at Blue Skies. It was wonderful again for all the same reasons, but this time we had the added bonus of viewing the comet NEOWISE in the beautiful night sky. This is a phenomenal place!

Great place to unwind and relax!

Miss Abby was compact, cozy, and had everything we needed for a comfortable stay. What was the most amazing to me was the spacious, individual bathhouse with amenities. The outdoor shower spoiled me, and my group of 4 came home wanting one! The pool and pool area were fun and relaxing. The resort was close enough to Fredericksburg that we often went there twice a day. We had SO much fun enjoying Blue Skies that we plan to make this an annual trip!

My girlfriends and I stayed here and it blew our freaking mind!! We all travel often so staying at a place where the details were already thought of is EVERYTHING! Every little detail was taken care of thoroughly thought out and well designed. We loved our experience retro glamping on the Texas Frontier.
Ps - the bathrooms are TO DIE FOR! You’ll feel safe and pampered ❤️

This is the coolest retro retreat. Super clean property, huge private bathroom (with outdoor shower and pink toilet/sink), thoughtful touches including records for the record player, soft robes, and firestarters. The pool was so relaxing, we also grilled steaks and made a fire at the pavilion and ate dinner watching an amazing sunset. Such a great stay here, would highly recommend to anyone looking to get away.

Everything was perfect, clean, well equipped and very comfortable.

Y’all. If you’re looking for the best little weekend getaway I definetly recommend this place! It was so cute, so clean, so adorable. Basically all of the above!! Only about 20 minutes from historic downtown Fredericksburg. All of the features you could possibly want were there! Book it. Seriously! You won’t regret it!

Nice and clean little camper. Surprisingly very nice private bathrooms.
