Fantastic cottage near town center on a quiet street. Charming with a mix of old world architectural details and updated kitchen, bath and AC. If the bed linens were more luxurious, it would make for a perfect experience. Would definitely recommend.
Rachel S. Jul 2020
Everything about this house was ideal. The location is close enough to downtown for easy shopping or eating out, but still quiet with a secluded feel once inside. The western themed furnishings provide just the right ambience for this hill country getaway. The rooms are spacious, the couches are comfy, the kitchen has all you need to choose take out or to cook with a nice bar for eating. The 2 person shower is luxurious. The back porch is a quiet little spot to enjoy. We loved our stay so much and would loved to have extended our stay. We will be back.

Step back in time and enjoy the Texas Hill Country of yesterday. Spacious 2 bedroom King Suites with all of the updates you could ask for while keeping the heritage of an older residence. Two sitting rooms, with even more sitting on front porch and back screened porch. Modern kitchen and appliances open to sitting areas. One street from all of the shopping and many restaurants. Most within walking distance, but we found parking in town to be a breeze. Two bikes on the front porch! Loved this little slice of heaven!

The place was great for hanging out and going to town, just a couple of blocks away from downtown.
We had a great time chatting with our family and visiting the local business and restaurants.
We had a couple of interactions with Vacasa personnel and they responded pleasantly!

House and location were both great
Susan H. Jun 2020
Wanted to let you know that the toilet seat was loose in back bathroom and toilet paper holder fell off the wall on first use. Also, walk in shower only had hot water. Other then that, fantastic location and amenities; we loved our stay and will be back.
Manager response:
We are so glad you enjoyed your stay, Susan! We also greatly appreciate you bringing these items to our attention. All of your concerns have been fixed. Thank you for choosing Vacasa!

WE had a great stay at the Durst Haus on Austin Street in Fredericksburg. It was clean and nicely decorated in a Texas Ranch House style.

This was perfect for two couples. The ‘haus’ was super clean and the ladies enjoyed the decor. A bonus is the proximity to Main St. We parked our car and walked everywhere. We enjoyed our stay and will be back!
Philip O. May 2020
The home has all of the amenities needed. King beds in both bedrooms made it easy to share space equally. The decor is perfect for hill country and we really liked the screened in back porch. About 2 blocks to the Main Street area. Would definitely stay again.
Ginger T. Mar 2020
Just the right size: room to spread out, but super comfy spaces for watching TV, eating, and hanging out. Interior decorating is spot-on. We enjoyed everything about this home, and would love to return!
Tammy L. Mar 2020
