Enjoy a private deck, walk to wineries & tasting rooms!
Indulge your inner history lover when you stay at this elegant Fredericksburg cottage, a one-bedroom wine country retreat that offers beautiful presidential-themed decor, a nearby Messina Hof tasting room, and an unbeatable location along the Highway 290 Wine Trail. A light, unhosted breakfast is included in your stay.
Conveniently situated just 10 miles east of downtown Fredericksburg, this single-level cottage is part of Messina Hof Hill Country, a complex of four private rentals just steps from the Messina Hof tasting room. These suites can be rented together by a large group, or individually by solo travelers and couples.
Whether you're a wine enthusiast or a lover of the Texas Hill Country outdoors, you'll enjoy that this cabin is less than half a mile from 4.0 Cellars, Grape Creek Vineyards, and Mandelbaum Cellars; nine miles from Lyndon B. Johnson State Park and Historic Site; and 27 miles from Enchanted Rock State Natural Area.
The living room is lofty and spacious, with tall exposed beam ceilings, rich leather furnishings, and decor that pays tribute to past presidents. Central heating and air conditioning will help keep you comfortable as you browse the WiFi or relax on the sofa in front of the flatscreen cable TV.
The wet bar features a sink, a microwave, a gourmet coffee maker, and a small refrigerator, perfect for storing a few bottles of Texas wine. Please take note, however, that there is no kitchen - but you'll hardly need one when you're dining at Otto's and the Cabernet Grill, two of the local favorites.
After a day spent strolling the historic sites, shops, and the seasonal farmers market in downtown Fredericksburg, return home to share forest views and a bottle of wine with your loved one on your very own private deck.
At night, the President Cottage can comfortably accommodate as many as two guests. The one large bedroom features an abundance of sunlight, polished floors, and a king-size bed with a vine-wrapped canopy. The full bathroom offers a spacious walk-in shower.
In addition to having the Messina Hof tasting room just a few feet away, guests at this wonderful cottage will enjoy easy access to the best of the Texas wine country. Guests interested in wine tours will find numerous other wineries just a short walk or drive away.
You'll also find more than 80 sites of interest in the Fredericksburg National Historic District - as well as delectable bistro dinners at Vaudeville right in town.
Come and experience this wonderful blend of history and beauty in the heart of Texas Hill Country!

Cozy, and quiet! Loved the view off of the back patio especially when the deer were walking around!
My wife and I were so happy with the cottage. The pastry was really nice with coffee. We shared a bottle of wine on the back patio and were surprised by 6 deer in the field behind the cottage. We loved the wine tasting, Kylie was very informative and she was fun to talk to Thank you for making our stay so great.
Wonderful property with separate area to sit and relax from the bedroom. Very spacious for two people. We loved being out near a number of the wineries !
The location and design of the unit was great. My hubby and I were looking forward to a romantic weekend away. The rooms was clean and the big bed looked very cozy. Unfortunantly, the bed was very uncomfortable. It felt like a trampoline. The pillows were fluffy but as soon as you layed your head on them, they were flat. It made for a very uncomfortable sleep. When I got up for a shower in the morning, I was greeted by several bugs on the floor. Beetles and centapedes were crawling around the toilet and shower. My husband got rid of the bugs and I continued with my shower only to find the towels were rough and thin. I was expecting so much more with this rental. The location was perfect but the room needed work in my opinion and a visit from pest control. After two nights, I couldn't wait to leave. Very frustrating.
Messina Hof Hill Country:Presidents Cottage was beautiful. The cottage was very clean and comfortable. The atmosphere was peaceful and quiet. I really enjoyed the natural landscaping in front of the cottages and the open fields in back. It was really neat to be able to sit on the back porch with some coffee and watch the deer grazing. Loved everything about our stay!
The cottage was perfect and romantic. We loved the look of the bed.
Messina Hof Country President zcottage was more then we expected. Excellent accommodations and grounds. Their tasting room is smazing and our tasting host JR was very professional, knowledgeable and just s great person. The experience and wines were so good we joined the Messina Hof wine club!!! A class act and we cannot wait to return!!!!
The casita is cute and very comfortable but the additional goodies of a stocked fridge and pastry under glass was great
Beautiful cottage, very well kept and in great condition. Location is very good from a proximity standpoint to ALL attractions. My only wish is that is was more secluded. It is just off the main highway and I did not get that from researching the property. I thought it was more remote.
I have stayed here over 5 different times and love it each time.
Great cottage, roomy, lots of privacy.
Great place! Quite, and just an overall pleasant place to get away.
Had a overnight stay and it was wonderful...I would rather put a 1 Star so that no one else will go so it be available always...jk.....it’s worth the stay!!! Everything about it was super great!!! Can’t wait to stay again soon!!!
Nice peaceful setting. Bed was extremely comfortable.
We booked the president bungalow last minute, and it was worth every cent!! Completely private , sits behind the MASSINA HOFF tasting room,. Suite was stocked with fresh ground coffee n fixings, fresh strudel the next morning, luxurious bedding, cold ac( especially useful after a day of walking through wineries, or shopping) there are three more bungalows next to this one ... it’s still private and very quiet ... back patio is open to view the deer or birds. Another bonus was upon arrival our mini fridge was stocked with a cold bottle of wine , now that is service!! I will stay there again!
Loved the ease of the check in and the convenient location! We appreciated the welcome cake, sparkling wine, and breakfast items! Would visit again!
Awesome stay! Enjoyed are two nights in the President lodge. Very roomy and clean saw wildlife right off the back patio. The pastries were good. Easy booking and check in. Will be back soon!
Wonderful quaint cottage with beautiful view off back porch. The bed was great and we had the AC down to 60 each night. Convenient to town. Like the portraits of the Bush Family. Very nice accommodations for the price. Wine Tasting staff were very helpful.
This is a great location about 50 yards behind the Messina Hof tasting room. Very clean and plenty of space for the two of us. Great launching point for all of the area's wineries, most of which are 5 miles or less. You're about 10 miles outside of Fredericksburg if you want to go into town. Also, the internet connection at this cottage is surprisingly fast for a rural area if you need to get online. A quick note: there aren't many dinner options nearby as the wineries close fairly early. Might want to pick up some sandwiches during the day. The only thing that would make this cottage better is if the winery had an electric vehicle charging station :)
Very nice and staff was great. A great retreat.
We enjoyed staying at this site. It is beautiful, clean, very welcoming! Favorite part was sitting on back porch watching deer in the evening and again in the morning!
Good, but housekeeping missed us on day two
We had a lovely time at this property. Great furnishings and nice small touches everywhere. Hot tub and patio were a nice treat as well.
We loved the look of the casitas from the outside. Storybook adorable. The inside, while very clean, was a little wonky. The location was fantastic. This property is about a ten minute drive from the main drag in Fredericksburg so you really feel like you're out in the hill country, but are close enough to all the sights and great restaurants.
Highly recommend staying here. Very clean and well kept cottage. Staff at Messina Hoff winery were also helpful.
We live in the Hill Country, but decided to spend a few days in these lovely cabins along with friends. What a lovely experience. We had Holiday Wine Tour passports and were right in the middle of many wineries. Fredericksburg was just down the road, with beautiful holiday lights and many places to eat. The cabin,though, was the best treat. It was large and beautifully decorated. The bed was comfy and the view out back was peaceful.
very nice. good location. bed is a little firm, but pillows are great.
we may stay again.
We really enjoyed staying at Messina Hof Hill Country. It was relaxing and peaceful. We enjoyed the wine tasting, it was excellent.
Private and cozy....perfect place for a weekend getaway!
Great place to get away for the weekend! Loved it here!
Loves staying at the Messina Hof cabins. Everything was so nice and I would definitely stay there again. It was about 8 miles out of town but worth the drive and it is advantageous since the wineries are all right there where you are staying.
Lovely, quiet cabin with beautiful ambience. Spacious and clean. Sat on back porch with coffee and saw deer every day. Presidents Cabin is handicapped friendly....which was funny to us spending our 30th Anniversary there! Comfortable bed, nice mini kitchen to heat up pastry left for us, but not daily. Poor lighting in bathroom, so impossible to put makeup on (bring a lighted mirror). Bring your own ice for drinks. Overall, would stay again.
The room was very nice and clean and centrally located amongst several of the wineries.
Love staying in the cottages at Messina Hof. Stay there every time we are in Fredericksburg.
The cabin is very comfortable and well decorated. It is made wheel-chair accessible so the shower does not have a bathtub, which was the only con since my wife likes to take baths. The bed was very comfortable and even though we had neighbors we never heard them. The location was convenient to all the wineries in that area and close enough to Fredericksburg, but not in the city.
We booked a last minute weekend getaway . The cottages at Messina Hoff were absolutely adorable . We even saw deer while sitting on the back porch.
Location is convenient to Fredericksburg, LBJ Ranch, Johnson City and most of the wineries in the area. Accommodations are excellent. Continental breakfast provided was very good.
Lovely apt. Spacious and nicely appointed. Good location between the wine road and Fredericksburg. Private
Well stock, awesome cottage. Highly enjoyed our stay.
The peaceful setting and location were ideal! Perfect get away and so convenient to everything!
Had an amazing time celebrating my 9 year anniversary there at Messina hof. Wine delicious bought 7 bottles during my stay.
First time visiting Fredericksburg from a Napa Valley native and this place was much better than I expected! Will visit again.
Perfect location for wine tasting, visiting Fredericksburg, and LBJ ranch. Very comfortable room. Just perfect.
Loved it! It was in a great location, right in the middle of all the wineries and a short drive to Main Street.
Great for visiting the different wineries
Loved staying here. Very relaxing and close to town.
Fantastic German cottage. Located with plenty of wineries around. Clean and with everything supplied, this cottage is perfect for a romantic get away!
My wife and I stayed here for our first anniversary and it was amazing. Very quiet at peaceful. Very clean and staff was extremely friendly. Definitely will be going back again soon!
everyone is so cooperative. Its a nice area to stay. I wish they had some restaurant too. They have good wine tasting program and wines too.
Love this little place. Would definitely stay here again.
Wonderful place to stay! We were close to wineries and had a lot of privacy. Very clean!
Absolutely everything we needed!
The cottage's are nice and cozy and less than a 10min drive to Fredericksburg. Have to try the V Supper Club in Fredericksburg, it's amazing and Hipmy winery.
My husband and I enjoyed our weekend stay in the Messina Hof President's cottage. If you are looking for quiet and serenity, this is the place for you. It was a little far from Fredericksburg for my liking, but it was really convenient to many wineries in the area. The bed was extremely comfortable and it had almost everything you need for a relaxing weekend.
This place was fantastic! Very clean, quiet, beautiful view out the back door! The breakfast was a delicious apple cinnamon coffee cake. We could not have been happier with our experience.
Would recommend the facilities to anyone
Overall it was a pleasant stay however it was a little far from downtown.
We enjoyed our stay very much. Great romantic, birthday get away for 2. Would stay there again. Will be setting up future times for in laws to stay as well.
Nice quiet place for couples getaway.

Very comfortable and quiet just outside of town. The coffee cake and fresh ground coffee in the mornings were a plus. Would stay again.
Very nice cottages. Staff at the winery and store was very helpful and pleasant. We would definitely come again.
