Beautiful cabin w/reclaimed wood details, private hot tub!

Experience the very best of Texas wine country in this gorgeous Barons Creek retreat, which boasts a great location and its own private hot tub. Full of rustic charm, from its exposed beams, reclaimed barn wood, and dramatic stone fireplaces, The Carl Cottage is a destination you'll never forget. A light, unhosted breakfast is included in your stay.

Located in historic Fredericksburg, this cottage is the epitome of Texas hospitality. You'll be within walking distance of cultural attractions like theaters, museums, and art galleries. Hunt for one-of-a-kind treasures in Fredericksburg's antique shops, and don't forget your hiking boots - Old Tunnel State Park and Enchanted Rock State Natural Area are both a short drive away.

With the Carl Cottage waiting for you, though, you might not want to leave home! An irresistible king-size bed faces the stunning stone fireplace, so you can curl up with your sweetheart and watch the flames dance. A pair of soft leather armchairs invites you to settle down with a book of ghost stories or a pulse-quickening western. A stylish cowskin rug greets bare feet on chilly mornings.

The beautifully appointed bathroom features two vanities done in reclaimed wood. A walk-in shower and marble floors make this a great place to get gussied up for date nights. Once you're home, you can unwind in the private hot tub or settle down in the rocking chairs on your back porch.

Sleeping two guests, this is the ideal spot for a romantic getaway - though it would also be a fantastic place for a solo retreat!

The Carl Cottage is within easy walking distance of plenty of eateries and wineries, but in case you want to take leftovers home or throw together a late-night snack, there's also a handy kitchenette, complete with mini-fridge, microwave, and coffeemaker. Imagine savoring your morning coffee in front of a crackling fire - or in one of those rocking chairs on the back porch.

With so many activities to enjoy nearby, you might just have trouble deciding what to do first. If you're in the mood for a leisurely day exploring town, be sure to check out the antique shops, galleries, museums, wine tasting rooms, and eateries along Main Street in Fredericksburg. If you prefer to seek out adventure, you may prefer to check out some of the hiking and biking trails, book a tour of a local vineyard, or set out in any direction to find fun.

Whether your trip to the Fredericksburg area involves wine tasting, antiquing, mountain biking, or some combination of all three, there's no better place to start and end your days than the Carl Cottage. Book your stay today!

Very beautiful place to stay. The cabin is very cute and charming. My husband and I had a very relaxing stay. We enjoyed being a short walk from all the downtown shopping and dining. The cabin has a mini fridge and a microwave, which was great for bringing back left overs. They also had a Keurig with coffee. I personally enjoyed sitting on the balcony each morning sipping on cofee, and watching deer. Yes, deer. Every morning of our stay we spotted deer just right outside our balcony. The Blacksmith Quaters is a beautiful place, the water feature gave it a very peaceful feeling and helped to drown out some road noise. During our stay we never saw another person, it was like we were the only ones there. We will definitely be back!

My husband and I just loved our wonderful private cabin "The Carl" in the Blacksmith Quarters. We had our own porch, hot tub, spacious cabin and working fireplace. Bed was comfy but didn't love the mattress pad they had under the sheets felt like plastic. And there is no personnel on site so if there are questions or problems there is no one around. We were the only people there the two nights and days we stayed. Would definitely stay here again in the future and highly recommend to friends as well.

Keurig but no pods. Ground coffee but no coffee maker. Poor instructions on the facility. Very nice place otherwise
Manager Response:
We provide Keurig machines in all of Blacksmith Quarters units, and we provide local coffee in addition to reusable Keurig filters. Thank you!

Nice setup and Cottages, would definitely return. All amenities/in-room breakfast all good. Only issue we experienced was ice machine not working for 3 days of stay but were able to address with manager on departure

Very impressive entry, cordial staff and very comfortable. Just a few “tweeks” would enhance stay. The back porch with its lovely rockers and the stone fireplace made the mood comfortable and cosy.

The property is beautiful, romantic and quiet. I was weary of the price but feel that it was worth it and will return.

The property is conveinitly located near the retail and restaurants in town. The House was amazingly awesome! We loved the fire place and hot tub. The bed was very comfortable and the high quality linens were so soft. I will certainly be back.

I recently booked a cabin at the Blacksmith quarters which was everything my wife had ever wanted. Close to town yet very private. Great place to stay!

This was exactly what we were looking for our first anniversary! It was a nice little cabin secluded at the back of the property with a water feature that made us feel like we were back in Montana on our honeymoon. In the future we will choose a different room at the property, it was pricey for what it was. We splurged this time because it was a special occasion.Our only complaint would be we had to go to the grocery to pick up some breakfast items since there was cereal, coffee, OJ and a coffee cake. We expected more for the price.

Everything was first class except house keeping.

I'm not sure it justifies the high price tag, but nice property.
David R. Apr 2017
Very clean and great service with perfect location; in the 'thick' of Fredericksburg.

Great place, the staff was super helpful. We had a wonderful weekend.
Steven R. Oct 2016
The Carl was a very nice, new, private cabin. We enjoyed sitting on the porch and the hot tub. It was expensive. But, only place like this I could find at the last minute. The gas fireplace didn't work but we didn't need it. Overall a great place for a romantic weekend.

My husband and I spent 2 nights in The Carl cabin at this resort and had a truly wonderful stay. The entire property is very high quality. The unit had absolutely everything that you could ask for. We loved sitting on the private back deck listening to the waterfall feature and enjoying some local wine. We saw deer and rabbits in the day and fireflies in the evening! My husband loved the private outdoor spa as well. The furnishings are all very high quality. The unit was extremely quiet with lots of windows to let light in and to see the outdoors. The property is in a great location at the east end of the main street in Fredericksburg. We were able to walk to dinner and sites such as the Pacific War Museum. We look forward to coming back here again and again.

Loved the quiet porches and water feature. Walking to downtown was a pleasure. It was great to have continental breakfast and be lazy
