Historic cabin w/ private hot tub & rustic charm - close to shops & attractions

Feel like a Texas pioneer from the 1800s at this historic, one-of-a-kind Fredericksburg bed and breakfast cottage. Perfect for a couple or a few friends, this home delivers a truly unique stay with cabin-style decor, period furnishings, a private hot tub, and plenty of rustic charm. A light, unhosted breakfast is included in your stay.

Conveniently located just off Main Street, the home's location is great for those desiring quick access to great shopping and sightseeing along Main Street while also being close enough for a day hike and exploring the diverse landscape of the surrounding hills.

An immaculately preserved home originally constructed in 1846, the Loeffler-Weber cabin is guaranteed to be one of the most unique homes you'll ever stay in. Built by immigrant settler Gerhard Rorig for shelter from a winter in Fredericksburg, rock and timber for the rooms, as well as a cooking fireplace, were added 20 years later by a local cabinet maker named Johann Loafer. In keeping with family tradition, Loeffler’s son-in-law expanded the floor plan and added more details. After being in the family for 90 years, the cabin was bought and restored by a local couple, bringing it to its present state.

History lesson aside, you'll fall in love with the home's exquisitely maintained appearance of log cabin walls held together with chinking, vaulted wood beam ceilings, frontier decor, antique lamps, wood-burning fireplace, and stately furnishings evoking the sensibilities of a bygone era (though it has been updated with modern conveniences, including WiFi and kitchen appliances).

Settle into the living area's comfy leather couch with a good book or a favorite magazine for a mid-day break from the summer heat or soak in the private hot tub, where you'll enjoy pleasant views.

Whip up simple meals using the kitchenette, which contains a stainless steel mini-fridge, a microwave, a sink, and dinnerware, and at together at a dining table within the bedroom.

At the end of an eventful day, retire home to the bedroom, where cozy antique furnishings and dim light from ornate wall sconces will put you into the kind of relaxed state of mind conducive for getting a great night's sleep. You'll rest deeply and peacefully on the king-size bed, which is fitted with luxuriously soft sheets and pillows. Central heat and air will keep you comfortable no matter the season of your visit.

Wake up refreshed in the morning and start planning a new day of adventures. From sightseeing in Fredericksburg's historic downtown area to museum tours, wine tasting, and culinary options ranging from renowned Texas-style barbecue to authentic Bavarian cuisine, you'll find plenty of nearby activities to keep you entertained all day! If you like to spend time in the outdoors, you could also visit Enchanted Rock State Natural Area (18 miles north) for hiking and rock climbing, or take a bicycle ride along scenic country roads just south of town on the 30-mile Luckenbach Loop.

Bring along your sense of adventure and stay at this truly historic Texas cottage for your next incredible getaway in the culturally unique Texas Hill Country!

* Please note if you are a light sleeper: This rental is located on Main Street, so it is subject to some road noise.

Loved everything about this cottage. The bed was very comfortable and it was a great experience to stay in an old log cabin
Will A. Dec 2018
This is a super cool old cottage on the outskirts of the entertainment district in Fredericksburg. The couch is really comfy and the bed is very nice. Plus there's cable and Wifi and a hot tub out back. Sure, it's small, but far more interesting than a generic hotel room, and it's still an easy walk to the restaurants and shops, but it's not right in the middle of the bustle. Highly recommended.
Eric F. Aug 2018
Loved this cozy cottage; and it’s small back yard area with hot tub was perfect!! Also very close to everything.
Shelby V. Aug 2018
-The hot tub did not heat like it should have, but it didn't really need to be any hotter due to the Texas heat. The place was clean and wonderful. Will definitely stay again!
Manager response:
Maintenance inspected the hot tub and found the temperature to be 104 degrees. It could be possible our guest left the cover off of the hot tub which will cause it to lose temperature. Thank you!
Ryan W. Jul 2018
Easy to walk to the shops and restaurants, helped having a spot to park, and rustic feel made it an unique place to stay

Breathe taking!!!

Loved the place!
Jennifer K. Apr 2018
Great cabin to sit and soak in the hot tub after a long day of shopping and wine tasting!
Robin W. Feb 2018
We loved the Hobbit House. It might be cozy with low doorways, but is an exceptional cottage in all other senses. Super convenient to restaurants and town. Clean and comfortable. I recommend very highly.
Rebeca V. Feb 2018
the size of the cottage was perfect for 2 people. very cozy. makes you not want to come out of the cottage. jacuzzi isnt too private but still very relaxing and soothing. love the feel and experience of staying at a historical site. loved that this place was pet friendly. walking to shops down main street isnt a bad walk at all.
Joshua P. Feb 2018
Stayed at the loeffler-weber it was pretty cool! Only down fall was the bathroom/shower and the low door ways! Other than that is was great!
Darren K. Jan 2018
Truly enjoyed our stay and would for sure return to Fredricksburg and stay at the Wine Country Cottages
Jeffry G. Nov 2017
My wife and I loved this unique little place. Just perfect for staying somewhere different that is also super comfy. Great location for food, massages (above and beyond day spa), and shopping. The history of the place is cool with the furnishings adding to the authenticity. Hot tub was super private and clean. The grounds were very pretty too. This is not your average rental and was very romantic and a blast to experience. Pay no attention to negative reviews.
JOHN B. Oct 2017
This is a great place to stay!
Terry O. Oct 2017
Staying in a 150 year old house was wonderful. Hot tub, comfy bed and great spot. Try it!

I immediately wanted to book this home after I viewed all of the cottages, because of it's history. It is a historical marker. My mother and I stayed overnight. I was unaware of this, but the house is directly on the street, with parallel parking in the front, and some parking in the back of the property. I decided to park my car in the back, as I felt more secure with my vehicle not being in birds eye view. It was a very charming house, with small door frames. I am 5'3" and I believe a had another inch or two of clearance with all of the frames. If you are tall / taller, you will have to stoop. Everything was great with a few minor problems. The two chairs at the glass table should be replaced, as they are very unstable / loose. The TV dish was not functioning when we turned it on. We were able to get a few channels though. the bed was very comfortable, as well as the sofa. The shower is very tiny, and if you use it, you will shower the sink directly behind you. Remember, this is a small home, and back in the day, I'm sure they had an outhouse. The Jacuzzi in the back is nice. Please note that there is no covered patio at this site. There is a small grassy yard, and two rocking chairs in the back. Also, in the kitchen, it is stocked with the following: (2 of each): Champagne and wine glasses, dinner and salad plate, 2 coffee mugs, and silverware. There is nothing else. There is a hair dryer, coffee maker, one beach towel, a small microwave and refrigerator. You're light breakfast is a delicious giant apple strudel roll in a cake dish when you arrive, and there is coffee creamer, OJ, 2 bottled waters, and some cartons of milk in there. For a snack, there is microwave popcorn, some hot cocoa packs, as well as Splenda, sugar, sweet-n-low, and lipton tea bags. I will be returning to this property next time we come. If you a light sleeper, the 18 wheelers during the day and night might wake you. It didn't bother us. Also, the back door, there is light that peers through because of the authenticity of the house. You can close the wooden shutters on the home to keep it dark. There is also a City café that serves breakfast right across the street. This property is not in town. It is on main street approx. 1.8 miles down from the shops. You need a car, unless you want to walk in 100+ degree weather. Have fun!!
Manager response:
It is true that this house was not built with tall people in mind; we apologize for any discomfort this may cause people. The house has 60 degree parking out front with a parking lot on the property as well. The property manager will ensure the Dish network is working correctly and will have the chairs inspected as well. Thank you!

The temperature was 97 degrees on our arrival, yet the air was turned off. The television was turned on, but not the air. We turned it on when we arrived, and it had only gone down to 89 degrees for our return that evening. It was finally comfortable around 6:30 the next morning, that is 76 degrees. Not only should the air be turned on early, the air conditioner itself is insufficient for the unit.
Amanda C. Apr 2017
Had great time. Definitely nice to be on Main street. Bed very comfortable. Really enjoyed uniqueness of the cottage.
Jackie G. Apr 2017
The lady at check in was super nice and friendly. She kindly gave us a warning that the cottage we were staying in is very authentic and old, so it was built for people in the past who were typically shorter than now. We got into the cottage and saw what she was talking about. I'm 5'2", and the house felt like it was built for someone my height. My husband is 5'8", and he got through all the doorways, except one where he had to bend down a little. The shower head was just 2" above my head. But thankfully it has a handheld showerhead for taller people to use. The bed was super comfy and big. The cottage is on Main St., but it's far enough from the hustle and bustle that it seems quiet. Stargazing in the Jacuzzi at night was beautiful. Every detail was so nice. I would definitely come back again.
Brad H. Feb 2017
I loved the details of this unique historic cabin. There were an overwhelmingly amount of cookie cutter properties to choose in Fredericksburg. This one stood out and exceeded our expectations. We will definitely be back soon.
Stephanie M. Feb 2017
I wanted a weekend getaway in a cute, little B&B. I did not need fancy or modern.

I chose this one because of it's historical nature and that is has character! I would love to stay here again.

I will say that it is right on the main road. Sometimes the traffic was a little loud, but it was nothing that distracted from my stay.
Anita B. Jan 2017
We would not stay here again. The lighting was poor, street noise terrible, tiny bathroom, tiny toilet, low ceiling and door opening, no elec outlet in bathroom, sofa very uncomfortable, gaps around back door let in outside air.
Manager response:
We appreciate the guests’ feedback concerning the home’s interior. The electrical outlet in the bathroom has been repaired and the sofa’s replacement is being considered. It’s important to remember this house was hand-built in 1846. This would account for the back door showing a small gap. The other attributes of the home mentioned all lend to its beauty and charm.
Jason O. Dec 2016
this place was absolutely worth it! We loved the location, the intimate backyard, the hottub and how they decorated the property. If you're on the fence about it, then take it from me, go for it. It's amazing!
Bridgette P. Oct 2016
We have been coming to Loeffler-Weber for many years and it was our favorite place to stay in Fredericksburg. Now it is surrounded by newly built bed and breakfast units and the cozy, secluded previous ambiance is ruined. There is a window from another unit only feet away looking into the back hot tub area. If you don't mind a major lack of privacy or that any of it's previous secluded character is gone, then I guess you'll like Loeffler-Weber now.
Maree S. Oct 2016
You will love this carming little cabin with its ideal location
Julie W. Aug 2016
My husband and I stayed at the cabin and found while very rustic, it was very comfortable. The bed was almost as nice as my bed at home (and I never have said that before). The coffee cake, milk, and orange juice were a nice surprise. The only down fall would probably be that the cabin is not idea for tall people as they may hit their heads on door frames and will need to bend to wash their hair. For us vertically challenged folks, it was just fine. Oh and their was a peeping tom. As I was changing in the bathroom, the friendly neighborhood squirrel was playing hide and seek with me at the high window.
Esteban F. Aug 2016
Love the historic vibe of the cabin... takes you into a different time. Very clean. Great cinnamon pastry awaited us at the table... Awesome hot tub!!!! Very nice experience.
Jacob L. Aug 2016
My wife and I couldn't believe this original cabin was able to be rented. We were there for our 15th anniversary. Has a feel that really sets the mood. Understand that it is an original 1800's cabin with most everything that goes with it but upgraded to today's amenities.lovely stay. A bit hot inside in the dead of August. And a little noisy at times since you are situated at Main st road front. Overall loved it!
Joe G. Jul 2016
Fredericksburg is a great weekend destination and offers interesting things to do. The accommodations we had through Vacasa were perfect and we truly enjoyed our stay.
Nicole T. Apr 2016
This cabin is COOL!! The local staff was very helpful . The cabin feels very 'cozy'( small) . Doorways are VERY SHORT. I'm 5'2" and easily passed through. Everyone else had to duck through every doorway. The shower is extremely small , you have to use a handheld sprayer because it hangs so low. The bathroom sink is almost IN the shower, it definitely gets wet with you taking a shower , because the shower curtain encloses all of it. Mini fridge ONLY. No full size fridge. The bed was GREAT, air conditioner worked great, great sound system, we were able to black out the windows by closing the exterior shutters. Walking distance to the bars!! I'll be back, thanks Girls!! Pet friendly!!!! Beautiful grounds!!!
