This historic Fredericksburg cottage provides elegant decor and luxury amenities, including an enclosed courtyard with a private hot tub and fireplace for your next foray in Texas wine country! The home is ideal for a family or group of up to six friends exploring the region's famed vineyards, antique stores, and historical sites. A light, unhosted breakfast is included in your stay.
The Ransleben-Moellering House is centrally located along the antique shops of Main Street, and near the region's renowned wine tasting rooms and diverse restaurants. Barons Creek rushes through the compound, creating a tranquil environment in the courtyard, and this stunning Fredericksburg cottage is within walking distance to the famed Admiral Nimitz State Historic Site and National Museum of the Pacific War.
The historic Ransleben-Moellering House was built in the 1800s and has been restored to perfection. The home is the crown jewel of the original Ransleben Blacksmith property, which features a unique compound of eight cottages, each named after the homesteading family's children, and each reflective of the unique architecture of their period.
The historic home is stunning and pays tribute to its cultural heritage, yet provides modern updates. Breathtaking 12-foot ceilings and stone walls have been meticulously restored to their former elegance. Natural elements like hardwood floors, antique wooden accent furniture, and ornate wrought-iron bed frames are softened by dramatic blue velvet drapes, area rugs, and decorative pillows to create a space that is calming yet extravagant!
After long days in the tasting room or antique shops, your group will find the parlor a peaceful retreat to unwind with entertainment on the flatscreen TV or simply chat about the day's discoveries. The kitchenette provides simple appliances, including a miniature refrigerator, sink, coffee maker, and microwave, and don't forget about the light provided breakfast!
The space is perfect for re-heating or storing leftovers from your culinary adventures! You'll love being within walking distance to diverse cuisine, including American fare at the Sunset Grill, rich German dishes at Otto's, and Tex-Mex at Hondo's On Main.
The divine Texas bed and breakfast comfortably accommodates six guests. Each of the three bedrooms provide private spa-like baths. Two suites feature king-size beds, and the third a queen. The calming rooms are furnished much like the rest of the house with handsome wooden accent furniture and a blue grey color scheme which will instantly lull you to sleep. Elegant touches in the full baths include antique fixtures, ornate tile floors, and stained glassed windows that will make your daily routines or preparations for date night feel truly special.
Outside, a private walled courtyard provides an intimate gathering space to roast marshmallows around the outdoor fireplace or soak in the private hot tub. Uncork the special bottle of wine you purchased in town, and on quiet evenings, turn off the house lights for glimpses of the stars.
Bring your golf clubs to tee off at Boot Ranch or Lady Bird Johnson Golf Course, then spend the afternoon soaking up the region's heritage at the Pioneer Museum Complex or Vereins Kirche Museum. Bring good walking shoes to explore the breathtaking scenery at Enchanted Rock State Natural Area or wander through fields of wildflowers at Wildseed Farms.
There's plenty of tasting rooms in town to choose from, but don't miss a trip to Grape Creek Vineyards On Main, Fiesta Winery Fredericksburg, and Rancho Ponte Vineyard. Pedernales Brewing Company and Fredericksburg Brewing Company even offer libations for visitors that aren't wine enthusiasts!
This phenomenal Texas Hill Country cottage will inspire an extended holiday or weekend getaway unlike any other. You'll get lost in the history, charms, and conveniences of this stunning home and its surroundings!
